  • Walter G.

    it was a very complex book but if you read Shogun and Taipan that it made sense photos pretty good A little bit long-winded but it was pretty good

  • Noah K

    Lacks a single main character to follow. Too much ch diplomatic dialogue and the plot takes forever. Slow and tedious. The narration is excellent with plenty of voice acting that makes it like you’re listening to a movie. Other of Clavells novels are great.

  • Rex R

    Even with the annoying French accents and French ligation character who are main character the book was still on par with most Clavell novels but as it go three-fourths finished I noticed how tedious and re-hashing and quite frankly unnecessarily long it all was. Action and fighting is good the French and Japenese little sexual comment was funny at first then got on my nerves. Decent read.
