Riassunto: Written by one of Japan' most popular modern authors, this is a lively, readable, and immensely entertaining fictional portrayal of one of the epochal events of the nineteenth century.
From Library Journal:
Believing that its activities may advance his own interests, influential Chinese merchant Lian Weicai sends his son Liwen to join the subversive Society of God Worshippers. Liwen finds himself increasingly drawn into the society's plans, which eventually entail a full-blown revolt against the Qing dynasty emperor. Such is the plot line that attempts to provide cohesion in this densely written, poorly translated, and apparently unedited historical novel. Born of Taiwanese parents, Chin is a popular, award-winning author in Japan. But it is important to note that his most significant literary awards have been for his popular detective novels and that his only other work to appear in English is the mystery, Murder in a Peking Studio (1986). This overly long historical novel, with its tedious recounting of factual minutiae and frequent repetitive digressions, is not helped by a translator who makes little attempt to render word-for-word translation into readable prose.
