Rough reading, and McCoullough did her best to cut down on this version not that there are really other translated versions The Translation was good, there were many phrases used to exhaustion, but that s not the the translator, from what I know, but the writer.Usually I prefer to read the source materials, and then the other writings after, but I didn t really have a choice in this case if I wanted to keep up some kind of forward moving chronology The last 4 or so books I ve read and others hav [...]

Let me be blunt, The Taiheiki isn t a book you pick up to read a gripping story While it s considered a work of fiction, it reads like a history In some sense, it is a history It does follow the broad brush strokes of the events in Japan in the early 14th century However, there are way too many characters to keep track of, or to remember who is on the side of whom, or even to know whether a given individual is worth remembering or whether they ll soon die an ignominious death If you don t believ [...]

Ultimately, this is the story of the battles that created modern day japan.

This chronicle of the chaos of medieval Japan is a riveting tale of political intrigue, loyalty, betrayal, clan rivalry and raging samurai warfare Varying families, clans and factions had been vying for power throughout the thirteenth century, and the book tells the story of how everything came to a head when Emperor Go Daigo ascended the throne in 1318 and decided he d had enough of the imperial throne being rendered powerless by the bakufu military government , and recently by the ultra manip [...]

Alright reading about some of the battles, the number of deaths especially the number of samurai warriors who suddenly kill themselves when their lord dies in battle is pretty cool There really are so many insights into Samurai culture and this era of Japanese history The problem is that it is so difficult to read Honestly, this needs to have a sparks note Shakespeare is easier to understand For some things, you need to have a grounding in the culture and history in order to understand what s go [...]

Most awesome piece of classic lit I ve read in years Wish there were a sequel.
