Brandon's Nominations Round 3

The Last Samurai by Mark Ravina
Thousand Cranes by Yasunari Kawabata
Woman in the Dunes by Kobo Abe
Underground by Haruki Murakami
Sanshiro by Natsume Soseki
A Modern History of Japan by Andrew Gordon


  1. I'm seriously tempted to give all of these books the same score. They look fantastic.

    Still, here's a somewhat random ranking:

    6- Thousand Cranes
    5- Woman in the Dunes
    4- Sanshiro
    3- Underground
    2- The Last Samurai
    1- A Modern History

  2. Great list, difficult to rank, but here goes:

    6- Sanshiro
    5- Woman in the Dunes
    4- Modern History
    3- Underground
    2- Thousand Cranes
    1- Last Samurai

  3. Like the theme. Tough to choose. Here goes nothing:
    6 - Underground
    5- The Last Samurai
    4- Modern History
    3- Thousand Cranes
    2- Woman in the Dunes
    1- Sanshiro

  4. After looking at the descriptions in Amazon and not looking at previous votes, here's what I come up with.

    Last Samurai - 6
    Sanshiro - 5
    Thousand Cranes - 4
    Woman In The Dunes - 3
    Underground - 2
    Moder History - 1

Hey, Book Skimmers-
So it looks like we're talking about Tom McCarthy's book next. Because I currently have a conflict with my Thursday evenings, I'm hoping everyone can make it to a Wednesday discussion in April. I'm told that Wednesday, April 19 is open for those OH2 folks who normally have midweek obligations. I hope it works for everyone. Let me know if it doesn't.

Place and exact time TBD.
