really liked it
Read from July 20 to August 10, 2010

This would get the full five if i didn't feel a slight let down at the end. I usually don't read this style of writing, but damn was this book fun. Political intrigue, fast action, passion, humor and general badassedness. Shogun is a killer yarn and spun in a different (western) way than Musashi which takes place in essentially the same time period. I would say this is a book nearly anyone would enjoy, though some may think its more of a "guy book". It is of epic length, but it is not difficult to read and the action propels the pages forward. Definitely recommend this if you have never read it.
