The Sea and Poison (Revived Modern Classic)

The Sea and Poison - Shūsaku Endō, Peter Owen I'm giving this book 5 stars not because I enjoyed it. More because it's left such a lasting impression and I think it was a book that has shaped the way I think so powerfully that it deserves the rating.

A record of torture on American POWs isn't exactly something one can enjoy but it serves as a powerful indictment against war, particularly given the Japanese perspective.
