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 heights of trusted advisor and eventually, Samurai. All as civil war looms over the fragile country.Hide synopsis

Go figure? The quarter cloth spine is green and the rest of cover is a blue. The First edition of Shogun is scarce. Booksellers note.
I enjoyed this years ago when it first came out - was vastly disappointed by the 'miniseries' they did from it on TV.
Re-reading it was fun again.
Clavell's characters and places are vivid and believable and exciting. Great books to sink into and get a feel for other lands.
