The characters were interesting, and learning about views of literary analysis added to the story.
I gave up after an hour of listening since I did not find anything interesting in any character nor in the story.
I discovered Bryce Courtnay through Audible and have now listed both to The Persimmon Tree and Brother Fish. Both are excellent stories with memorable characters. In Brother Fish I learned more about the Korean War than I had known previously.
There were excellent scenes that were done well, but the book is overlong. Keeping up with the Japanese names was difficult.
This book was a type of British humor I found uninteresting.
The main character was not in a muddle, and unfortunately I as listener did not care.
He performed well, but the story did not hold together.
Not that I can think of.
