    PDF/EPUB padreramon.co × 女神記 ePUB ↠ 女神記 mobile, 女神記 EpubDive into the vastly immersive fictional mythical and fantastical world taken off of an East Asian cultural history coming from the infamous feudal land of the rising sun Japan Whether you are an avid Japanese literature enthusiast or a casually curious reader wanting to know a brief bit of an important piece of Japanese history especially on how the land is believed to be borne as well as how it is intermittently reflected and rooted deep in the nation's social consciousness this book can be a good starting point for you Albeit its several minor changes f

    PDF/EPUB padreramon.co × 女神記 ePUB ↠ 女神記 mobile, 女神記 EpubA human life means nothing to a god and can be taken away at will But for you you're human and that makes you hesitate Gods and humans are different My suffering and yours are differentThen Izanami sama why do you suffer? I asked without thinkingBecause I am a female god This book put me under a spell I loved it so much it hurts seriouslyI ordered it for the English language section of our bookstore which is slowly but surely overtaken by English translations of Japanese authors coughs and then started reading it during a slow evening and it pulled me in and pulled me under and didn't let go It's worth reading for the language alone lush and poetical and just just gorgeous The story itself is based on the Japanese myth of Izanaki and Izanami and focuses on a young girl destined from birth to become the priestess of the darkness In a way it was the perfect book for the person I am right now while the book is about many things what stood out mos

    PDF/EPUB padreramon.co × 女神記 ePUB ↠ 女神記 mobile, 女神記 EpubI was expecting to love this one a lot than I did Unfortunatly it was a little lack luster Now one of the things about reading translated literature is that I can't necessarily pin down my dislike of the prose to the writing or the translation but it just didn't create any atmosphere for me It is a retelling of a Japanese creation myth that I was only vaguely aware of and I certainly enjoyed learning a little about although I'd like to go and read some original Japanese mythology now instead I love myth retellings and I love the Canongate myth retellings in particular I didn't love this book but nor did I hate it It started off strong with a fascinating world and backdrop it was also trying to do some interesting things with gender roles and enforced cultural roles But like I said th

    PDF/EPUB padreramon.co × 女神記 ePUB ↠ 女神記 mobile, 女神記 EpubIt's an outstanding retelling of the Japanese Creation Myth of Izanami and Izanaki The myth of Izanami and Izanaki is a powerful myth it is related strongly to the most primitive human conditions and emotions birth love betrayal grief the death of a beloved wife and mother the struggle of life and death a man's cowardliness before the fear of death etc I like the story of the twin priestesses on the small island and how the twin's story is later being related to the tale of Izanami originally Mother Goddess of All who eventually became the Goddess of the Underworld I especially like how the Goddess eventually became 'a true goddess' view spoilera true destroyer hide spoiler

    PDF/EPUB padreramon.co × 女神記 ePUB ↠ 女神記 mobile, 女神記 EpubThe set up for the main plot is slow at times boring and too repetitive The action once we get to can also be repetitive I kept thinking please give the reader some credit though I'm willing to speculate that perhaps some of the fault is with the translation The bland prose doesn't fit such an emotional story and the exposition seems as if it was written for a young audience While I understand what she was trying to get at with the ending it seems forced and I'm not sure it makes much sen

    PDF/EPUB padreramon.co × 女神記 ePUB ↠ 女神記 mobile, 女神記 EpubThis is a really good retelling of the story of Izanagi and Izanami with a dual thread of story where a young woman’s life echoes that of the goddess as she finally goes to serve her The translation seems to capture the flavour of the original a sort of tone that seems to be as distinct to Japanese stories as there is one I find distinct in Russian stories It’s mostly simplistic language which maintains that fairytale feelI wasn’t a big fan of the narrative voice though Sometimes it’s first person sometimes third and it’s not always clear wherewhy the switch has happened I felt like I didn’t always follow the reasoning behind the characte

    PDF/EPUB padreramon.co × 女神記 ePUB ↠ 女神記 mobile, 女神記 EpubOriginally posted at “And so it came to pass that sisters who had been the best of friends were forced to follow separate paths ‘Separate’ is not uite the right word Our paths were distinctly different as if she were to follow the day and I the night; or she the inner road and I the outer she to traverse the heavens and I the earth That was the ‘law’ of the island – that was our ‘destiny’It feels like a bit of a gamble for Natsuo Kirino best known for her crimemystery novels to have written this retelling of the Japanese creation mythYet it also remains true to her female focused narratives with this being a feminist rebellingApparently when Kirino’s books especially Out were first published in Japan many criticized her plots and one radio DJ refused to speak to her because in Out a woman murders her husbandAlso later I realize that The Go

    PDF/EPUB padreramon.co × 女神記 ePUB ↠ 女神記 mobile, 女神記 EpubI am a fan of the Canongate Myths series and I am a fan of Natsuo Kirino who has this way of slipping into the heads of her characters so exactly and so seamlessly that it’s almost a surprise when you the reader resurface in the “real” world and realize that the people you have been reading about are characters and fictional So to say I was looking forward to reading The Goddess Chronicle would have been an understatement The premise is so fascinating and though I am not very familiar with Japanese mythology I do know that Izanagi and Izanami do exist as mythical figures and the novel closely shadows or perhaps appropriately does attempt to bring to life these godly figuresThe mythology is rich and the potential for a layered complex tale with certain creative licenses taken was there Unfortunately the style and techniue chosen to te

    PDF/EPUB padreramon.co × 女神記 ePUB ↠ 女神記 mobile, 女神記 EpubIt's always difficult to review a translated work because when you come across either brilliance or lack of lustre it's difficult to assess whether that boon or bane is attributable to the author or the translatorSuch is the case with The Goddess Chronicle by Natsuo Kirino translated by Rebecca Copeland The story is a retelling of an original Japanese creation story I suspect the original work by Kirino is a charged tight story Copeland's translation however lacks passion and certainly this is a story about passion in fact eons of passion as we trace the history of the YinYang gods of Izanami and Izanaki through the mortal lives of Namima and her unscrupulous lover There is much here of sibling rivalry and betrayal of sacred trusts of epic journeys both temporal and spiritual There is a genesis story a parallel to the Greek Persephone myth There is the struggle of the desperately poor serving religious tenets that serve only to embed their poverty It's all there And not a
