Amélie Nothomb: The Character of Rain

This was one of my birthdaypresentbook in this year.

The Japanese believe that until the age of three children are gods, each one an okosama, or "lord child". On their third birthday they fall from grace and join the rest of human race. In Amélie Nothomb´s novel, we learn that divinit is a difficult thing from wich to recover.

I at first don´t understand this story, but then the story take with me and a like it. Quite a lifetastestory this was :)
