    "From both this description and the one on the solution I have an interest to read this book. I think because only a vague description was given and just a few choice adventure like details were given it made the story alluring"

    "It's more than 1200 pages long and it's not long enough. This book can be described with only one word - amazing. The first page sucks you in and keeps you in the edge till the end. You never know what will happen next and what awaits in the next corner. Shogun showed me a new side of the world, it changed my views on many things, and made me understand just as many things. "

    "Shogun is a long, drawn out series for anyone who is into Asian culture. Takes place in the 1600s and has a lot of history throughout its pages. A true romance series, it has drama, some thrills, and a lot of love and heartbreak. "

    "Shogun (Asian Saga) is a freaking great book that I think if you have seen that movie with Tom Cruise about becoming a samuri than this should be similar."

    "White people love historical Japan. The book is good but the theme of cultures mixing together sends the wrong message."

    "Shogun is the first entry in the Asian Saga series. It's an expansive story set in the 1600s, making it an excellent choice for those interested in long novels."

    "Though this book is over 800 pages, it is truly a page turner that does not feel that "hefty". It is vivid and compelling and it sweeps you up into its beauty and allure. You get a true feel for the Asian people and customs and the culture itself. I found it to be very moving and I personally consider it to be a masterpiece."
  • Christopher Campbell

    "This book is amazing. I was a little weary of this when I was first recommended to it. With that said i was pleasantly surprised with how great the writing, and the story was so compelling. I would recommend this read. "
