“The memory of the samurai” di Natasha Pulley

The memory of the samurai (Bompiani, 2022, trans. Carlo Prosperi) is the third volume of the trilogy of Natasha Pulleythat in this new chapter of the saga it gives a degna conclusion of how much started in L’orologiaio di Filigree Street (Bompiani, 2017).

It was 1888 and it was five years ago when Nathaniel (sopranoname Thaniel) was going to live with Keita Mori and the Sei baby parrot. L’orologiaio è in viaggio da mesi e Thaniel trascorre le la giornate tra il “Foreign Office”, il pianoforte e sua ella figlia de ella, ma non c’è giorno in cui non pensi a Keita and when she ritornerà.

Still, the apparent quiet comes from the protagonist’s precarious health: his fiduciary doctor diagnoses tuberculosis in this advanced state and offers advice on how to change Paese, who will cause a più broth or malattia that will succumb to the end of the year.

The case vuole – o meglio, le macchinazioni di Mori fanno yes – that Thaniel comes invited from his office in Giappone for a diplomatic mission: second the communication that arrived from the seat of the British legislature, Tokyo is invaded dai fantasmi. Mori, Nathaniel e Sei parteno il prima possibile ma una volta arrivati ​​nella residence dell’orologiaio le loro strade if divided.

Mori was the victim of his stesso piano against Kuroda, the Japanese prime minister, who came to enjoy the samurai’s power to set up the entire Russian fleet stationed along the southern coast of Korea because of what was coming from the “manovra di addestramento”.

Keita almost lost his life because of the medicine that gli scagnozzi of the prime minister gli somministrano affinché collabori. To save him is her mother Takiko Pepperharrow who, having hated him for years because of past misunderstandings and delusion, sacrifices her stessa vita for him.

Sei trascorre il his time to the headquarters of the British Legislation making friends with and protesting accampati outside the building and walking to caccia dei fantasmi, che ormai sono ovunque.

Nathaniel, of the use of Keita’s behavior that he sows, does not consider it when he is transferred, if he concentrates his new work. Ben presto, però, the plot if infittisce and the pianist is costretto ad affronare a series of ostacoli that carries him to far luce sul mistero dei fantasmi. A spiegargli la loro natura è Grace Carrow, his former moglie of him, who is stata rapita insieme ad altri scienziati da Kuroda e dai suoi uomini del fin di riuscire a scoprire qualcosa in più sui poteri di Keita Mori. I fantasmi sono frutto degli esperimenti elettrici portati avanti da Grace ei suoi colleghi de ella. Sono riflessi del passato e frammenti del futuro que si intrecciano nello grazie alla corrente ettrica prodotta gives a huge generator positioned at the foot of Mount Fuji.

Malgrado the narrazione sia molto complessa, nelle ultime page i nodi vengono al pettine. Il true reason why Keita has elaborated a piano così intricato, to the point of non-riuscire to follow him lui stesso, è l’amore.

His love for Nathaniel has convinced him to intervene in his event, Grace, with his experimentation, invented in advance a kind of microscope that would be indispensable in biology and medicine to heal and treat tuberculosis, because of what Thaniel did.

A narrazione come questa, ricca di personaggi, intrighi, azione e mistero, potrebbe sembrare difficile da sequel e, invece, dopo le primer cento page – all’interno delle quali l’autrice delinea la cornice entre cui gli eventi si vanno a dispiegare – turn on the flight and it is impossible to interrupt the reading.

Il letore, dettaglio dopo dettaglio, composes a puzzle in her fine mind ad avere un quadro perfetto.

I personaggi non deludono: sono coerenti, ben definitely and with a unique personality. Also Takiko e Sei, seppur non siano al centro della plot, non passano inosservate. Entrambe hanno messo gives part a difficult pass and sono riuscite to fare della loro intelligenza a point of strength. Benché vivano in un’epoca in cui essere donne è difficile, non nascondono chi sono e ciò di cui sono capaci.
