The little dog named Leo by our daughter unexpectedly entered our life like an oncoming snowfall on a highway. My daughter fell in love with him when he was listed for sale on an internet site, and before we could say no, she had already purchased him. For us, her parents there was no turning around. He has several characteristics with our daughter, like being born in August, having red fur, and having curls on his back.
The book "Shogun" by James Clavell is based on a genuine story that is so ridiculous that it should be classified as fantasy. Every word, every syllable transports the reader into the enchanting world of Japanese culture and the cruel regulations of the samurai. You feel it with every heartbeat.
I was reading, reading, reading. I couldn't stop myself. Dean Koontz's (Strangers) "Schwarzer Mond" kept me awake. The novel had such a vivid effect on me that every word stayed with me. I received the impression that I was a character in this book. I was completely absorbed by the book and its language.
