Find the enhanced version of this and other reviews at Cody Epstein s The Gods of Heavenly Punishment is unlike any WWII fiction I ve ever picked up In many ways it is a personal story driven by individual experiences but at the same time it is a war story shaped by the contention of two nations vying to defeat one anotherAs far as favorite character it is a toss up between Hana and Anton Hana is glamorous intelligent but emotionally complex From the beginning it is clear her story will be marred by tragedy but I couldn t help being drawn to her couldn t help hoping her story would have a happy ending Then there is Anton Other characters are affected by the war directly or indirectly but no one else suffers such emotional conflict and inner turmoil as the American architect whose legacy is built into the Tokyo skyline Neither Hana nor Anton is what I would call admirable but these flawed characters the kind who aren t black and white the kind who aren t easy to understand the kind prone to very realistic failings these are the kind that make great fictionBut good characters are only the beginning For instance I really loved how Epstein applied the six degrees of separation concept in this piece Her cast is divided by background and culture but each member plays an important role and represents something different in Yoshi s journey I ve encountered the concept in fiction before but rarely have I seen it done with such artistry and depth as I found hereBefore I close I d like to offer a word of caution to sensitive readers The Gods of Heavenly Punishment is a work of historic fiction and Epstein is one of those admirable writers who isn t intimidated by period appropriate terminology Personally I admire Epstein s candor but for those who are less inclined to appreciate her dedication to historical accuracy consider yourself warned as this book utilizes language considered both inappropriate and offensive in the modern ageThe Gods of Heavenly Punishment tackles some heavy subject matter infidelity post traumatic stress disorder prejudice war crimes etc but in the end the book is a beautiful story about survival hope and the courage it takes to pick up the pieces and forge ahead
