Across the Nightingale Floor (Tales of the Otori, Book 1)
Every now and then a novel appears, completely unlike anything that has appeared before. Across the Nightingale Floor is such a work-a magical creation of a world beyond time.77% (7)
Set in an imaginary, ancient Japanese society dominated by warring clans, Across the Nightingale Floor is a story of a boy who is suddenly plucked from his life in a remote and peaceful village to find himself a pawn in a political scheme, filled with treacherous warlords, rivalry-and the intensity of first love. In a culture ruled by codes of honor and formal rituals, Takeo must look inside himself to discover the powers that will enable him to fulfill his destiny.
A work of transcendent storytelling with an appeal that crosses genres, genders, and generations, Across the Nightingale Floor is a rich and brilliantly constructed tale, mythic in its themes and epic in its vision. It is poised to become the most captivating novel of the year.
The debut novel of Lian Hearn's Tales of the Otori series, Across the Nightingale Floor, is set in a feudal Japan on the edge of the imagination. The tale begins with young Takeo, a member of a subversive and persecuted religious group, who returns home to find his village in flames. He is saved, not by coincidence, by the swords of Lord Otori Shigeru and thrust into a world of warlords, feuding clans, and political scheming. As Lord Otori's ward, he discovers he is a member by birth of the shadowy "Tribe," a mysterious group of assassins with supernatural abilities.
Hearn sets his tale in an imaginary realm that is and isn't feudal Japan. This device serves the author well as he is able to play with familiar archetypes--samurai, Shogun, and ninja--without falling prey to the pitfalls of history. The novel fills a unique niche that is at once period piece and fantasy novel. Hearn unfolds the tale of Takeo and the conflicting forces around him in a deliberate manner that leads to a satisfying conclusion and sets the stage for the rest of the series. --Jeremy Pugh
Nara - Gion: Gion Corner - Ikenobo Free Style
Kado (??), literally the "way of flowers", is the Japanese art of flower arrangement, also known as ikebana (???), literally "living flowers." More than simply putting flowers in a container, kado is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together. Contrary to the idea of floral arrangement as a collection of particolored or multicolored arrangement of blooms, ikebana often emphasizes other areas of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, and draws emphasis toward shape, line, form. The Japanese art of flower arrangement can be traced back to the 6th century when Buddhism was introduced to Japan, evolving from the Buddhist ritual of offering flowers at the altar to the spirits of the dead. The first classical styles of arrangement started in the middle of the fifteenth century with Buddhist priests and members. As time passed, other schools emerged, styles changed, and it became a custom among the Japanese society. Gion Corner was established at Yasaka Kaikan Hall in 1962. Its one-hour show is popular with international tourists for its quick introduction to seven different traditional art forms: custom paper floor mats, kado (flower arrangement), hardwood floors in houston, gagaku (ancient court music), kyogen (traditionally comic drama), kyomai (Kyoto style geisha/maiko dance) geisha-style women dances, and bunraku puppet drama. On the first floor, there is a Maiko Gallery exhibiting interesting items associated with maiko.Music is my way of thinking....
Aha!!!! This was not as tricky as it seems... if it seems tricky to you... My good old pallies who I love so much, and go to scuola with me, know I have a very nice red scarf with faint orange paisley patterns on it. I lay this out on the floor, and (once I had collected them) spread these CD's on it, took the shot, then added boost on Picnik. Done... Yay!!! I would just like to let you know, that most of the CD's are not my own, I just chose them coz they are nice and colourful, asmost of my CD's are copies or just plain boring! TheMr. Men and Little Miss DVD, is, very unfortunately,(as I am Little Miss Trouble's greatest fan)not mine. Also, the "Carnival!" CD, is not in my possession. However the pink floyd CD IS my own- - As my friends know, I am the world's GREATEST pink floyd fan. That is not something to be ashamed of. ;-) MY STUPID SPACE BAR IS PLAYING UP AGAIN!!!!
Michael Harvey’s sizzling follow-up to The Chicago Way (“A wonderful first novel . . . Harvey has studied the masters and put his own unique touch on the crime novel . . . Heralds the arrival of a major new voice” —Michael Connelly) opens with a murder in contemporary Chicago and winds its way back to Mrs. O’Leary’s cow and the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.Related topics:
Private investigator Michael Kelly, the Windy City’s answer to Philip Marlowe, is back in another page-turner that revives a tantalizing mystery buried in Chicago’s past. When Kelly is hired by an old girlfriend to tail her abusive husband, he expects trouble of a domestic rather than a historical nature. Life, however, is not so simple. The trail leads Kelly to an old house on Chicago’s North Side. Inside it, he finds a body, and perhaps the answer to one of Chicago’s most enduring mysteries: who started the Great Chicago Fire and why. The ensuing investigation takes Kelly to places he’d rather not go: specifically, City Hall’s fabled fifth floor, where the mayor is feeling the heat. Kelly becomes embroiled in a scam that stretches from current politics back to the night Chicago burned to the ground, and along the way, he finds himself framed for murder, before finally facing a killer bent on rewriting history.
The Fifth Floor is fast-stepping, intricately woven suspense, rich with the lore and atmosphere of a great city. A marvelous successor to Harvey’s critically acclaimed debut.
