It has been a while since I last introduced books.
I usually read about 10 books a month.
But I read only 3 books last month
because I've got stuck on my blog I've just started.
I'll read more this month so that I can introduce many good books to you guys.
However, I've been devoted to historical noves these days・・・
Like I wrote in my article "Timetravel (2)",
what brought me to try to read histrical novels is the TV drama "JIN."
Howevere, it was the first histrical novel for me that made me stucked on ones.
"The beginning is essential to everything" is well said.
If the first histrical novel for me had bored me stiff,
I would have never tried to read one the next 10 years.
It means that I should have wasted on my time for 10 years
Shimosawa Kan, the author of "Katsu Kaishu" did a great work.
I very much appereciate it.
One of the reason that I read histrical novels is
because I can feel "The good old days" through them,
which was lost a long time ago.
It's hard to describe the feeling because it's just atmosphere.
To stretch a point, It's like
"Everyone lives in the moment with might and main helping each other."
It's wonderful if we can live like that in our days, isn't it?
A prelude is too long again.
I'm going to introduce a novel "Yosiwaragomenjyou" by Ryu Keiichirou today.
As the title says, it's the supreme sleepless novel.
Be careful if you read it the day before you have to work
The hero is Matsunaga Seiichirou, a master of "Nitenichiryu",
who was brought up by the great swordsman, Miyamoto Musashi
among the mountains in Higo.
It's so-called hero story.
After Musashi's death, Seiichirou went up to Yoshiwara in Edo by Musashi's will.
The battles continously unfold themselves
between Seiichirou and the backstage of Yagyu
over the mystery thing "Shinkungomenjyou."
To tell the truth, Shinichiro has a secret of his own birth・・・
You'll be deeply in love with Matsunaga Seiichirou who is so cool.
Ryu Keiichirou is one of the writer I love so much.
If you are fond of comic books, you might know "HananoKeiji."
He is the original author of it.
It's indescribable how much great his works are.
He has the skill of description of the characters that attract readers
and the richness of marvelous ideas.
A speedy story full of entertainment unfold in his novels.
That's the popular literature
Quite unfortunately, his works is small because he made his debut in his late life
and then he passed away in the brief period of five years after his debut.
I might be at a loss after I finish reading all his works・・・
If you like "Yoshiwaragomenjyou" after reading,
I recommend "Kakuresatokukaikou", a sequel to the story.
