amazingly well done!

absolutely love this book. it's certainly quite long, but I never felt any difficulty in finishing it, because it's truly thrilling to listen to! I certainly recommend this book to anyone looking for something to occupy them for a long time. if you get bored then we might not be listening to the same book!
the narrator is also great, even if his women are very silly sounding. he has distinct accents and voices for each character, and astoundingly, did not seem to get them mixed up even once in over 50 hours. kudos to him!

Always Amazing

This is the only novel that I have read three times, and will likely read it one more time before I die. It is the standard by which I measure all other historical fiction. Shogun is truly an excellent book filled with with huge characters, an amazing plot with numerous riveting subplots, that are punctuated by fascinating history and a never ending patchwork of human intrigue. This book should be on everyone's "must read" list.
