    A collection of off-the-wall short stories by Japan's leading contemporary novelist. An elephant vanishes; hunger drives a couple to rob McDonalds; an insomniac wife wakes in a different world.

    Welcome to the magical land of Snowybrook Vale! While you're here, enjoy the good company, fine drink and elegant lodging to be had at the Vale's premier vacation spot, Snowybrook Inn. But if you venture into the countryside, watch the shadows! Because Goblins lurk behind every rock, and Imperial soldiers are always around, looking to teach an unruly frontiersman a lesson. Snowybrook Inn is an ongoing whimsical fantasy series in episodic format. Each book consists of four to five stand-alone short stories.

  • Edith Wharton: The Short Stories

    Perhaps best known for her classic novel The Age of Innocence, Wharton loved the short story form because its brevity allowed her to concentrate on telling the story. In these three powerful stories, Edith Wharton transports the listener to the turn of the century, where she depicts (without turning to sensationalism) the shocking topics of the time. Often, she opens just after an incident, allowing the listener to be immersed straight into the story.

    L. Kragh says: "3 great stories, sound quality could be better"

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Edith Wharton?

    she has a very elegant way of ending the short stories


    How could the performance have been better?

    Better sound quality

    Japan, 1857. For centuries, Japan has been on its own; isolated by choice from the rest of the world. But the Western powers are now at its shores, demanding to be let in; the government is crumbling, and revolution is building. The age of the samurai is ending and in its place a new Japan will be born. And a young woman is readying herself for marriage in this, the most tumultuous period of her nation's history.

    Mary Catherine says: "Not for anyone that liked the Tales of the Otori"
    "A bit confusing"

    Would you try another book from Lian Hearn and/or Allison Hiroto and Marc Vietor ?

    maybe


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    no comments


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Allison Hiroto and Marc Vietor ?

    sure


    Was Blossoms and Shadows worth the listening time?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    Right, I read in some of the reviews for the book, and it seems, that there's a list of characters etc. in the book. I really miss that in the audiobook! I've given up trying to follow any other than the 4-5 main characters, as the huge amount of Japanese lords, young soldiers and domains get mixed up for me!
