A pale view of hills
I finished reading A Pale View of Hills yesterday while on a train delayed for four hours.  I like the book; It’s evocative.  It reminded me of places and times I haven’t thought of in a while.  The story started me thinking about the actions people take and why they take them.  I found it a strangely calm and gentle read.  Strange as it’s partially set in post-war Nagasaki and due to the themes it deals with.  It’s a book that needs more consideration and I plan on returning to it in the future.
"Niki shrugged.  I watched her for a little while, then said, "But you see Niki, I knew all along.  I knew all along she wouldn’t be happy over here.  But I decided to bring her just the same." A Pale View of Hills by Kazuo Ishiguro
