Publisher's Summary

1948. Young Jonathan Lusk's life was perfect. Big Boston house. Swimming pool. Summers on the Cape. His father a Nobel Prize winning Harvard professor; his mother the beautiful only child of Boston socialites. When his parents get caught between rival Arab and Jewish faculty over the creation of the State of Israel, Jonathan's life is turned upside down. He soon finds himself in Japan, living with his grandfather, former American Ambassador and a judge on the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunals. American opulence and comfort is abruptly replaced by subtle Japanese elegance and traditional austerity. The boy is thrust into a life among strangers and forced to navigate his way through a new country, foreign customs, unfamiliar language, and ultimately political intrigue that will threaten his life. This suspenseful story, one of personal survival, is a testament to a young boy's perseverance and to human courage and loyalty that are sometimes found in unexpected places.

    "Unresolved plot conflicts"
    What would have made The Arrow Catcher better?

    The author spends most of the book showing the character developing the skills of a Japanese warrior. It would have been nice if he had used some of these traits to resolve the plot conflicts.
    The Author also does not resolve the basic plot conflict. Either he is trying to set up a sequel or he just got tired of writing.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator "over acted". He has is terrible at mimicking Japanese accent. At times he has too much inflection for the situation and then at others he seems to forget all bout inflection.
