A great example of the difficulty inherent in appreciating a book to its full extent when the protagonist is unlikable, even hateable. And it was a riot: His relationship with his father botcban brother is civil at best.

Namun, sekarang aku jadi tahu siapa sesungguhnya dia. My interest level increased the deeper I advanced in the book. Please improve it by skseki the claims made and adding inline citations.


Read it in high school. Each of the faculty members has one or two personal qualities and does not deviate from them over the book’s ish pages. Indeed there’s a large gap between the discipline exhibited by the students in this street dance and the pettiness they are prone to in school.

Holden is more against society in general, whereas Botchan has a mor This is lauded as the Japanese “Catcher in the Rye”. I’m not made of the same stuff as those peasants were, of that you can be sure.

His childhood wasn’t particularly pleasant, with his older brother the favoured child, and the only person he has any real affection for is the family maid, Kiyo. Botchan struggles initially to see through the guises and sort out the players.
