The gale tore at him and he felt its bite deep within him and he knew that if they did not make landfall in three days they would all be dead. (from the first line)
A bold English adventurer. An invincible Japanese warlord. A beautiful woman torn between two ways of life, two ways of love. All brought together in an extraordinary saga of a time and a place aflame with conflict, passion, ambition, lust, and the struggle for power...

"From the Paperback edition."

Annotation:
A saga of Japan in the 1570s featuring a love triangle composed of the English adventurer John Blackthorne, a Japanese warlord, and a woman caught between two cultures.
Author Bio
James Clavell
Born Charles Edmund DuMaresq de Clavelle, the multi-talented James Clavell wrote many successful screenplays (including THE GREAT ESCAPE and TO SIR WITH LOVE), and was a director and producer, but he was best known for his monumental best-selling novels set in Asia. Among them were KING RAT (1962), based on his own experiences as a prisoner of war in Singapore's Changi prison; SHOGUN (1975); and NOBLE HOUSE (1981). Clavell died of cancer at his home in Switzerland, just short of his 70th birthday.

Praise

Washington Post Book World
"Clavell offers a wide-ranging view of feudal Japan at a time of crisis... "Scene after scene is given, conversation after conversation reported, with the point not merely of advancing the narrative (which does somehow grind inexorably
forward), but also of imparting to us the peculiar flavor of life in
feudal Japan and the unique code of conduct (bushido) which dominated
life there and then."
- Bruce Cook

Washington Post
"...one of those books that blots up vacations and imperils marriages, because it simply will not let the reader go." - Cynthia Gorney

New York Times Book Review
"Clavell has a gift...It may be something that cannot be taught or earned. He breathes narrative. It's almost impossible not to continue to read `Shogun' once having opened it. The imagination is possessed by Blackthorne, Toranaga and medieval Japan. Clavell creates a world: people, customs, settings, needs and desires all become so enveloping that you forget who and where you are." - Webster Schott
