Artfully written with flowing prose and profound personal insights, this uplifting novel delves into the rich life and culture of Mexico, following author Shogo Onoe’s remarkable story as he casts aside his old life in Japan for the vibrant cities and landscapes of Central America.
Blending thoughtful philosophical and spiritual wisdom with an undying message of living your life to the fullest – no matter what other people might think – this book paints a vivid picture of one man’s exodus in search of a better life. You’ll discover how three Mexican friends transformed Shogo’s destiny, the suffocating existence he left behind in Japan, and the incredible contrast between two opposite cultures. A message of faith underlies every page, reflecting on how Shogo’s trust in God gave him the strength and the passion to find his source of meaning and dare to turn his world upside-down.
As a must-read for dreamers, soul-searchers, and creative spirits, Mexican Rhapsody: Having a Second Chance will touch your heart, encouraging you to refuse to be inauthentic and stay true to what you really feel. This autobiographical novel is a beautiful breath of fresh air, serving as a rallying cry that will inspire you to liberate yourself from soul-destroying situations and pursue a life of light, meaning, and joy.
Mexican Rhapsody is another incredible book by author Shogo Onoe who once again shares his story in a novelized way that takes you on a journey from Japan to Mexico. In Onoe’s first book, Liberation, he shares his personal journey and how his life was transformed. In Mexican Rhapsody, he expands on his story even more and you’re able to relate to him even more and learn from his many experiences. The result is a unique book that combines an autobiographical novel, with memoir and travelogue themes that are all perfectly woven into one excellent book that shouldn’t be missed.
I love reading books of a travel/discovering yourself nature and so Mexican Rhapsody is the perfect read for me and for readers who also enjoy books of this kind. Mexican Rhapsody is definitely one of my favorite books in this genre thanks to the honesty and amazing depiction of Shogo Onoe’s journey across the world. Not only is it inspiring, but transformative and makes you think differently about your own life, and gives you the push you may need to pursue your dreams and break away from a life you aren’t happy with. That is why I am so enchanted by Mexican Rhapsody and Onoe’s excellent literature which was a pleasure to read.
Mexican Rhapsody will introduce the reader to Shogo Onoe, our author and the focus of the story throughout Mexican Rhapsody. Onoe will take readers on an incredible journey from his life in Japan to his new life in Mexico where he lives his life to the fullest. The reader will follow Onoe on his journey as you’ll discover how his friends in Mexico helped him to live the life he has always wanted, one that is free and full of life in which he does not feel restricted by society. Onoe shares how he accomplished all of this and more and it makes for a beautiful and memorable tale that you won’t be able to forget.
Not only is Mexican Rhapsody an incredible book thanks to the author’s honesty and how he openly shares his life with us, but his wonderful descriptive literature. It takes you to Mexico and immerses you in the rich culture which fills you with happiness and desire. It makes you feel as if you are right there alongside Shogo Onoe, experiencing the journey he is on and it makes for an inspiring tale packed full of wisdom. Literature is an art form and stories such as Onoe’s are meant to be shared and read by readers because they have a real ability to change and enrich your life, and that is most certainly the case with Mexican Rhapsody!
While reading Mexican Rhapsody, I found myself turning the pages at an alarming rate because it was captivating as well as engrossing. Despite this book being of an autobiographical nature, it reads like a novel and so you will feel captivated from beginning to end. I was engrossed in the story and wanted to absorb every moment and detail and this is all thanks to Shogo Onoe’s incredible literature.
As Mexican Rhapsody is a remarkable, memorable, and compelling piece of literature I am going to award this book five stars!
