This book was rather boring. I really struggled at the start of it and just wanted to give up, there was just too much detail, I lost interest in what I was reading and had to reread a lot because my mind just started wandering.

I liked part 2 of the book, but that doesn't start until page 200 and lasts until page 365 of 546. That was the only part of the book I really enjoyed reading and the only pages where I had trouble putting the book down because it was so exciting. I would have loved a book just about the Mount Shiranui Shrine.

I guess someone that's interested in history would like this book as it is historic fiction.
