    Musashi von Eiji Yoshikawa (Jannes)
    Jannes: Musashi has been described as "the japanese answer to Shogun". Similar in that is a long and epic historical nove rife with intrigue, violence and, above all, Samurai warriors, but Mushashi i better researched, less stereotypical and is not as full of jarring errors and inaccuracies as Clavell's novel.… (mehr)

    Eisenthron von George R. R. Martin (saturnine13)
    saturnine13: If you like gritty, faux historical fiction, how about another with an asian flavor? Shogun, like A Game of Thrones, concerns the byzantine political intrigues of a multitude of different characters painted in moral shades of grey, generously heaped with gruesome action and heart-breaking romance. While Shogun lacks dragons, it does have the added interest of being mostly based upon real events and people.… (mehr)

Shogun is the long-awaited new novel by the author of the internationally acclaimed best sellers, Tai-Pan and King Rat.

The setting of Shogun is Japan in the year 1600. The principal figures are John Blackthrone, whose dream is to be the first Englishman to circumnavigate the globe, to wrest control of the trade between Japan and China from the Portuguese, and to return home a man of weath and position; Toranaga, the most powerful feudal lord in Japan, who strives and schemes to seize utlimate power by becoming Shogun-the supreme military dictator-and to unite the warring samurai fiefdoms under his own masterful and farsighted leadership; and the Lady Mariko, a Catholic convert whose conflicting loyalties to the Church and her country are compounded when she falls in love with Blackthorne, the barbarian intruder.

The millions of readers who have relished Mr. Clavell's previous work will recognize his prowess as a supreme storyteller, a writer who creates spectaculary entertainment from an epic vision, a sense of history as human drama and a dramatic parallel of our times, and a matchless fertility at drawing a prodigious variety of characters.

Shogun is a glorious saga of the Orient. In dramatizing how a Westerner, the representative man of his time, comes to be altered by his exposure to an alien and exotic culture, Mr. Clavell provides a spellbinding depiction of a nation seething with violence and intrigue as it moves from the medieval world to the modern.

James Clavell is, in his words, 'a half-Irish Englishman with Scots overtones, born in Australia, a citizen of the USA, residing in England, California and Canada or wherever.'

Watched the TV Series with Richard Chamberlain, then read the book a few years later, which I really enjoyed. Listened to in in 2010 with an appalling narrator who made it really difficult to get through even half way through the 50 hour recording. [return][return]This tells of one of the 1st Portuguese Pilots (ship masters) to reach the isolated island of Japan. Not only does he have to compete with not understanding the rules and language of a completely different world, but is already at a disadvantage when the Jesuit priests are already "on the ground" and speaking Japanese.

I've read many of the historical criticisms of the book and yeah, I can totally see it. Even so, it's quite a sweeping story with a lot of political maneuvering, posturing, and an abundance of death. Did it need to be as long as it was? Probably not. ( )

Remember loving reading this. Learned so much and terrific storytelling. Here's what I wrote after reading in 1981: "Great! Story of Japan during days of the Samurai. What a genius the eventual Shogun was! Toranaga was brilliant!" ( )

Overall this is an incredible story. Even though it takes 1300 pages for the author to tell us that all Toranaga wanted was a friend. Great history blended with heated emotions, loss, betrayal and lots of daring do. ( )
