All of creation suffers, young ones. Only in accepting our own mortality can we make a difference. Only in bearing the burden of our failures can we find the strength to go on. Only in detachment from glory, or honour, or jealousy... from life itself can we hope to spare others from grief.
We are Doom Eagles. And we are dead already.

When I bought this was book I was in a phase of Japanese books. Most of them made by western writers. This one was not an exception. I remember one thing. Beautifuly prose language but unfotunally it didn't work for me. I will try to read in a few years when I have more books under my belt. This book mix japanese folklore and culture. I remember being confuse with the story. Most of time I didn't knew where the writer wanted the main character to go. The ending was as confusing as the rest of the book, and I didn't enjoy the book. I felt cheated.
