After Englishman John Blackthorne is lost at sea, he awakens in a place few Europeans know of and even fewer have seen-Nippon. Thrust into the closed society that is seventeenth-century Japan, a land where the line between life and death is razor-thin, Blackthorne must negotiate not only a foreign people, with unknown customs and language, but also his own definitions of morality, truth, and freedom. As internal political strife and a clash of cultures lead to seemingly inevitable conflict, Blackthorne's loyalty and strength of character are tested by both passion and loss, and he is torn between two worlds that will each be forever changed. Powerful and engrossing, capturing both the rich pageantry and stark realities of life in feudal Japan, Sh?gun is a critically acclaimed powerhouse of a book. Heart-stopping, edge-of-your-seat action melds seamlessly with intricate historical detail and raw human emotion. Endlessly compelling, this sweeping saga captivated the world to become not only one of the best-selling novels of all time but also one of the highest-rated television miniseries, as well as inspiring a nationwide surge of interest in the culture of Japan. Shakespearean in both scope and depth, Sh?gun is, as the New York Times put it, "...not only something you read-you live it." Provocative, absorbing, and endlessly fascinating, there is only one: Sh?gun.… (mais)

    Musashi por 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.… (mais)

    A Game of Thrones por 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.… (mais)

    Silence por Shūsaku Endō (soylentgreen23)
    soylentgreen23: Although not from the same period exactly, Endo's 'Silence' is another great book about the incursion into Japan of foreign culture, this time in the form of the Christian Church, and what happened in Japan when that religion was suddenly rejected by the ruling class.… (mais)

Read this book years ago; this time I bogged down in the middle. It is very long.
  Abcdarian | May 18, 2024 |
I'd actually read Shogun before as a teenager, following the first TV series adaptation. Which was an EVENT. Those were the days when there were only 4 TV stations in the UK and Everyone watched the adaptation - which was brilliant. So with all the buzz around the remake, I wanted to reread via audio before watching the remake. It's a very long book - 54 hours. It remains a brilliant book and mostly didn't outstay its welcome. I did get slightly fed up towards the end just before the final plot conclusions. But it's worth the investment of your time and energy to meet these characters and their environment and their politics and culture.
I don't know if I have the energy or interest to read any more Clavell but everyone should read Shogun.
All I need now is time to watch the remake...... ( )

A fantastic, fact-based fictional drama of a foreigner integrating into historic Japan. In the end, it is mostly a love story. Nevertheless, the book is filled with deep cultural insights.
Quite a long read, so mostly recommended for people interested in other cultures. ( )

A true doorstopper of a novel; the chronological start of the forever unfinished Asian Saga. Though it never feels as long as it is, it's hard to justify the length as well. There are massive sections that could be cut without changing the book much at all. This is the "extended edition" and you will get to see every bit of Blackthorne's stumbling journey into japanese society. Upon rereading it, perhaps the repetitious nature of a few too many so sorry's, or the stilted romance between Anjin & Mariko stuck with me more than it used to, and rubbed some of the shine off of an otherwise great book.
This is a romantic (in the old sense) view of history, not a factual one - though the '75 publication date (only decades after the very bitter end of the war in the pacific) makes it an impressively favourable telling of west meets east, for a western audience. ( )

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.
