Editorial Reviews

Review

A captivating work.

-- "Atlantic Journal-Constitution"

A stirring saga and one that will prove popular not only for readers interested in Japan.

-- "Washington Post Book World"

Dramatic and exciting.

-- "Philadelphia Bulletin"

Listeners will be enthralled by this classic tale of feuding samurai locked in battle. Narrator Brian Nishii's performance is epic, giving life to the novel's sprawling cast of characters...Yoshikawa's imagery is steeped in historical Japanese environs, which alone make this immersive audiobook captivating. Nishii's tone is often playful and fun yet provides the necessary gravitas to carry listeners through this long, rewarding adventure set in ancient Japan.

-- "AudioFile"

The Gone with the Wind of Japan.

-- "Edwin O. Reischauer, former United States ambassador to Japan"

About the Author

Eiji Yoshikawa (1892-1962) was a Japanese historical novelist. Among his best-known novels, most are revisions of older classics. He was mainly influenced by classics such as The Tale of the Heike, Tale of Genji, Outlaws of the Marsh, and Romance of the Three Kingdoms, many of which he retold in his own style. He was awarded the Cultural Order of Merit in 1960, the Order of the Sacred Treasure, and the Mainichi Art Award just before his death from cancer in 1962. He is cited as one of the best historical novelists in Japan.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the words of Jocko - "Good."
By Kevin on November 17, 2018
Outstanding read! Great character development, good descriptions of the areas visited, and has definitely stood the test of time. I knew nothing of this book before Jocko Willink discussed it on his podcast, and thank goodness that he did. This is a book that I would describe as essential for the reader in you life, and a purchase that I am extremely happy with.
