E son père Mais uand la fiancée de Pinkerton l'apprend elle décide de ramener l'enfant aux États unis en lui expliuant ue sa mère est mort. 3 12 starsI kept wavering back and forthI love the opera MADAMA BUTTERFLY and have seen it I can remember being so shocked by the setting of One Fine Day as I watched and listened Langley takes this story fleshes it out from both points of viewboth young people completely unaware of the mess they ve gotten themselves into I ve never liked Pinkerton and for most of the book I still didn tBUTLangley changes the pivotal scene in the opera and then follows her characters both in Japan Nagasaki and Seattle Thru the Depression through the veterans march on DC Through Roosevelt s election through the loosening of traditions in Japan through Pearl Harbor the internment camps war in Europe war in Japanand the second atomic bombIn some ways I was ticking off the historical events on a checklistLangley does her homework and has added to my understanding of this worldbut at what costTo me the cost was the characters I liked them I watched them grow and change But the changes seemed forced somehow They seemed to be cutouts to be moved around in this huge global sagaAt heart BUTTERFLY is about intimate events about small families big decisions certainly but personal Sometimes I felt like this book with its richly layered title was a newsreel of the early 20th centuryGreat last line but not much closure

Nagasaki années 1920 Cho Cho a 15 ans et se retrouve orpheline Pour subvenir à ses besoins son oncle décide de vendre les charmes de la jeun. Not really what I had expected The book is said to cover the development of a child until it s adolescence Well it didn t really do that The first half was about its parents of which the first part in Japan was interesting to read but the rest could have been skipped easily It described the all day life of the family and the depression in America like a history book that a novel involving character development The second half actually was about the boy itself of which I had no clue who he was personality wise This didn t improve a lot throughout the story There was a promising past which didn t last The ending seemed too engineered to be plausible I was touched one time though To conclude it was really clear what the author wanted to establish bit it didn t work out for me at all That doesn t mean I disliked it altogether There were nice chapters here and there but I just feel like half of what should have been said missed and now the book is finished but there should have been IDK xD
