I enjoy this series so much. It is fast paced and adventurous, with wonderful characters and clever dialogue. I was afraid that the story would begin to become stale and unimaginative. Wrong wrong wrong! Vaughn knows how to keep me interested. I've already picked up the next one in the series.
One of the few times I've been equally enthralled by two entwined narratives, instead of skipping through to read about my favorite character. In historical Japan, a cat loses the story of her bloodline, and must deal with her grief when she is turned human; an empress is dying, and begins writing her own tale. I've also found Johnson to be one of the few convincing Western writers of an Asian perspective.
hee-larious. love sedaris. this is a perennial stocking stuffer for my friends.
