I read it on a hot midsummer day and it was really great. I feel like the title story blows all its steam in the first few pages with the death and isn't that exciting afterward. Patriotism was my favorite by far, it was one of the most intense feelings Ive ever got from a book

>>7591775 The most memorable story is probably Nationalism, which is almost a /lit/ meme at this point. The title story is also pretty strong, it's Mishima at his best. Another one I particularly liked was Onnagata, but that might just be personal taste. It's one of those stories that seemed pretty close to Mishima's personal interest, dealing with Kabuki theatre and such. I thought the other stories were a bit weaker, though not bad.
