See a Problem?
Worried that this enterprise is in danger, a man named Baldabiou convinces Herve that to ensure a profit Herve needs to go a land that is known for only being at the end of the world: Japan. But Japan is closed to outsiders. In fact, it is closed off to anyone who leaves the island.
Now, it would have been easy for the author, Alessandro Baricco, to bombard the reader with fascinating details about the politics of Japan, and the history of opening the island to outsiders. I would have really liked that.
But Baricco had other ideas. He knew that if he heaped detail upon detail, during this part, the mystery and intrigue of the story would become lost. Instead, Baricco uses only the least bit of detail to convey such a tumultuous time of Japanese and world history. And it is done in such a beautiful and remarkable way that this reader never felt as if important aspects of the novel were only glazed over.
It is while in Japan that Herve has a realization of love. I wish I could tell you about the woman and the impact she had upon Herve, but that would ruin the story for you. Herve replays this journey four times. Three of them are peaceful. On the fourth time, Japan is in the midst of a civil war.
