Read-A-Long Call Out – The Storyteller And His Three Daughters by Lian Hearn

on September 13, 2013

StorytellerHello everyone!

It’s been a little while since we’ve done one of these but the lovely people at Hachette AU have asked me to host another read-a-long, this time featuring Lian Hearn’s forthcoming book, The Storyteller And His Three Daughters. For anyone who doesn’t know what these are about – if you’re interested in participating, you get a copy of the book and we generally read in several sections. Each week I make a post about the events in the relevant section and we all get together for a bit of a discussion. They’re always a lot of fun and you get a lot of different perspectives and opinions, which always helps broaden the experience.

For those who are interested….here’s a little more about the book (courtesy of the Hachette AU website):

From the internationally bestselling author of the Tales of the Otori, comes a tale of families, love, intrigue and betrayal.

TOKYO 1884

Sei has devoted his life to storytelling, captivating audiences with his tales. But now he is starting to wonder if the new world has left him behind.

Just when he thinks he will never write again, his own life and the lives of the people around him begin to spiral out of control providing the inspiration for the greatest story he has ever told. A story of love, jealousy, intrigue, and betrayal.

Set against the background of Japan’s first incursions into Korea, Sei offers a wise and witty reflection on the nature of storytelling, its perils and delights, its lies and, ultimately, its truth.

Looking forward to this – Japan in the 1800’s is not a time I’ve read all that much about.

Those who have participated before should be getting an email soon about this one. If you think this is something you’d like to be involved in, let me know! Send me an email at 1girl2manybooks {@} gmail {.} com by Tuesday 17th September. You must have a blog and you must be an Australian resident, due to the read-a-long being sponsored by the Aussie publisher. Let me know your blog link and your address and I’ll pass the details on so you can receive your copy of the book. Books are being posted out next week, so get in quick!
