My biggest passion is my passion. It's really big. Also my penis. Really big also. Like my passion.

Shogun

Shōgun - James Clavell As a picture of Japanese history it suffers from what another reviewer hilariously called (I paraphrase, here) our "round-eyed western mythologized POV."Which, okay—it was written in the 70's, after all.But as a story? OMFG what a fucking story.I fell into this book as a teenager and didn't come back out until I'd read 600,000 words and had a conversational grasp of transliterated Japanese.Three days. Three days of bliss.I dare you to read this and not—at the earliest opportunity—call someone a gaijin in pitying tones.
