Shogun - James Clavell

A novel based on attempts to trade with Japan, and its closed, low technology society of the time. One man gets caught up in this and held prisoner, hence he must learn how the society operates, the language, and culture, to try and survive. A Michener-like epic, as far as the history goes, and the incredible detail that goes into it, due to the length.

4 out of 5
