User Review  - Joe73 - LibraryThing

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. Read full review

The size of this book and all of the names that I felt that I would never be able to keep straight made me almost decide that I did not want to undertake it. I thought that I would just start it to see how it goes and then couldn't put it down. This is one great book that when I did finish reading it felt a loss of sorts. Not many books make you feel that way.
