The story of Blue Mountain Range is a youth drama right after the Pacific War. Just like the wind in spring, it is the healthy and refreshing reading. Tempos and description on the novel, are very polite. Describing shaking of young hearts on the novel will be valid enough in 2011.

1947. At that time, people were trying to meet their new value in Japan. Until that time, they were openly unable to do their love affairs and loves were the target to blame. Though love seems to lose its rules in Japan now, but most people each other groped for what to have to do and what to have to be like right after the Greater East Asian War. At such a time, old and young were all groping for their new styles at school in Blue Mountain Range.

Ishizaka Yojiro, the writer, had been a teacher in Aomori. So the story describes the true state of young men at that time. If you were far from feeling your palpitation in love affair, you should read once. Because something universal beyond times is in the story.
