What’s the most serious book you’ve read recently?
(I figure it’s easier than asking your most serious boook ever, because, well, it’s recent!)
I have to say Supernatural and Mysterious Japan by Catrien Ross, it was a book about ghost and other supernatural things in Japan. It was very interesting.
Here’s chapter 1 (I take it from my previous review)
The first chapter is called In Search of the Supernatural. It mostly talks about animal represent certain mythical power, such as fox, tanuki and shinsi. It also talks about Japanese well-known goblin like tengu and kappa. But the most interesting part is about Garuda which happen to be Indonesian’s symbolized bird. Garuda is a Hindu Buddhist Guardian, the mythical bird deity able to transform its shape. A massager and helper to the God, enemy of serpents and demons
