NOW A MAJOR TV SERIES

'Clavell never puts a foot wrong . . . Get it, read it, you'll enjoy it mightily' Daily Mirror

This is James Clavell's tour-de-force; an epic saga of one Pilot-Major John Blackthorne, and his integration into the struggles and strife of feudal Japan. Both entertaining and incisive, SHOGUN is a stunningly dramatic re-creation of a very different world.

Starting with his shipwreck on this most alien of shores, the novel charts Blackthorne's rise from the status of reviled foreigner up to the hights of trusted advisor and eventually, Samurai. All as civil war looms over the fragile country.

'I can't remember when a novel has seized my mind like this one. It's irresistible, maybe unforgettable. Clavell creates a world so enveloping you forget who and where you are' - New York Times

MEDIA REVIEWS

My bet for the most satisfyingly popular novel of the year . . . It has power, it has violence, subtlety and lots, lots more . . . Clavell never puts a foot wrong . . . Get it, read it, you'll enjoy it mightily - Daily Mirror

SHOGUN is a huge exotic, blood-stained canvas of sixteenth century but still medieval Japan, rival warlords and proselytising Jesuits, geishas, seppuku, samurai with the death-with and a shipwrecked Elizabethan - Guardian

Unquestionably the best historical novel of its kind since Anthony Adverse - Los Angeles Times

I can't remember when a novel has seized my mind like this one. It's irresistable, maybe unforgettable. Clavell ... creates a world so enveloping you forget who and where you are - New York Times

Mr Clavell tells his story brilliantly - The Times

One of the great page turners of all time - Good Book Guide

“A "must-have" book for the historical fiction lovers”

I was a bit sceptical about thi book in the beginning because of its length; but once I have started I wasn't able to put that book down.

You will be teleported in feudal Japan and you will feel the struggle,... More
