Its nice to get a male perspective about dancing for Balanchine.
Excellent, excellent work. I cannot believe not only that it was written just this last century and that it wasn't written by an Englishman. Of course, the Japanese also have an insider's perspective on the importance of castes and the society of servants. I had watched the movie and Merchant Ivory does such a good job at adapting it. However (of course), it was soooo much better reading the book. It was harder for me to sympathize with the main character, the butler, in the movie. He seemed so cold and distant. While his behaviors were also cold and distant here, it was only outwardly. The feelings which Anthony Hopkins (a superb actor) lets you catch a glimpse of in the movie, were more obvious and fully explained in the book. A book about love, upstairs/downstairs, blind loyalty and unending devotion - the butler who knows everything and yet, ultimately, nothing.
I absolutely loved this book. First off, Suzanne Collins is an amazing author. I love the literary crafts she uses to describe food. For some reason, when there is a passage with any food in it, from the way she writes it, I feel like I can taste what she's describing. A favorite part of mine would have to be when Katniss was getting scored by the Gamemakers. She rebelled when the Gamemakers weren't paying attention to her by shooting an arrow right at them. There's so much tension and you wonder what they're going to do to her. I also love the theme of the story, which is rebellion. They play this out throughout the entire story. Suzanne Collins emphasizes the poverty of District 12 in the beginning of the book, which makes you hate the capitol even more and want to join in on the rebellion as well. Overall, an awesome book. I loved it and I think anyone else who reads it will, too.
