    Kindle franzbielmeier.de ↠ Autumn Bridge Epub ´ autumn download, bridge download, Autumn Bridge PDFIt is interesting how people react differently to books just like people When I finished Autumn Bridge I felt as if someone had just died There was a moment during which I actually felt empty and wanted to grieve I felt the same way after reading Cloud of Sparrows yet when I started to read this its sequel I remembered very little of that story it came back to me in visions like personal memories There will be people who will read both books and wonder what all the fuss is about I can't answer that how the books affected me is a personal thing and could well be linked to the numerous facets that make up my interests and maybe in the sentimentali

    Kindle franzbielmeier.de ↠ Autumn Bridge Epub ´ autumn download, bridge download, Autumn Bridge PDFTo start off I loved Cloud of Sparrows Matsuoka is a gifted writer and it's a shame that he hasn't written When I first started reading this I was concerned that it wouldn't live up to Cloud of Sparrows and had a difficult time understanding the book's structure frequent jumps back and forth between time periods However it all began to make sense after about 25% through and I found myself racing to the finishThe sheer depth of emotion and description of the flaws of each and every character made the story real All of the plot holes in Cloud of Sparrows are woven together and answered in ways that were impossible to predict The reader gets a sense of the rise and fall of the Tokugawa regime with particular focus on the decline and fall of the samurai class The complexity and incredible plot development makes this even better than Cloud of Sparrows Not as much violence as with the first book but the ending is masterfully crafted

    Kindle franzbielmeier.de ↠ Autumn Bridge Epub ´ autumn download, bridge download, Autumn Bridge PDFA worthy sequel to Cloud of Sparrows Autumn Bridge fills in the few big gaps left by the previous book Though it's difficult to say what truly constitutes the present of the narrative in Autumn Bridge we are also introduced to a slew of new characters past present and future Perhaps that's the point though that for each of the characters their story is their present and as we read so it is for us Throughout the narrative there is little regard for chronological storytelling and oddly the book is stronger for itIf I had to register any complaints about this book it's that too little attention was paid to San Francisco though what there was was expertly crafted and that the end of the book seems to go into a nosedive with its breakneck pacing It's a little jarring for things to suddenly begin moving so quickly when they have taken their time all along time that was well spent in developing characters and events

    Kindle franzbielmeier.de ↠ Autumn Bridge Epub ´ autumn download, bridge download, Autumn Bridge PDFDramatic lyrical and creative I found this book better than Cloud of Sparrows The going back and forth in time was a bit confusing at first but it immediately made sense and even added depth to the setting and characters and moved the story forward by tying the loosed ends in Cloud of Sparrows This book also gives background to the pre Restoration era It's the story of Japan
