From the author of Silence this powerful novel of ideas is also a sensitive and moving depiction of the trials of old age set in the central region of Jap This was a melancholic book which I had some trouble connecting with despite its interesting depictions of Japanese culture What I did enjoy was the symbolism of the volcano linking it to human life The two protagnonists Jinpei and Father Durand were both pretty pathetic characters Jinpei was uite horrible to his wife and sons and was obsessed with the volcano Father Durand was relatively tyrannical too and spent most of the novel trying to prove that Japanese culture and Christianity were incompatible Not the best Japanese novel I ve ever read but it wasn t too bad
