review 宮本武蔵 Miyamoto Musashi ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook The classic samurai novel about the real exploits of the most famous swordsman Musashi is a novel in the best tradition of Japanese story te. wowthat is the first thing that came to mind when i finished this book it is easily the best historical fiction i have ever read it is also the largest and most difficult book i have ever read it is very japanese therefore some of the names and places tend to get mixed up in the nearly 1000 page epic howeverthat is the only negative i have after reading this book it will go down as one of my favorite reads of all time it focuses on the life very dramatized by the fantastic eiji yoshikawa san of musashi miyamoto a wandering ronin samurai during the edo period 1600 s of feudal japan this is the time when samurai were still prevalent by the advent of muskets was starting to take over the story the yoshikawa san unfurls is a fantastic epic of the nature of the way of the sword it was of fairness fierceness and unyielding strength and musashi was the height of that ideal i highly recommend this to those like me who have a fascination with japanese history and the way of the samurai in general also there is a beautiful love story mixed in the pages also highly dramatized but wonderful non the less that makes one believe that true love may actually exist out there if you read itplease give it the time because it is slow at pointsbut the end result is well worth the time and effortand that is just how musashi would have it

I didn t like this book It consisted of boring parts punctuated by parts where the main character and maybe other characters would go do something really stupid because of their bizarre moral codes or lack thereof The book is old enough that the levels of sexism in it are absurd and parts of it got me so annoyed that I was really distracted from the plot I suppose it s interesting to get a perspective on a VERY different culture but half the time I couldn t fathom any conceivable logical or moral reason why the characters would be doing what they were doing and this only got worse as the book went along Also the main character puts himself on too much of a pedestal for my liking I know some people will want to deny that he does this but he DOES That like pretty much everything else about Musashi and here I mean both the character and the book itself was annoying in the extreme

review 宮本武蔵 Miyamoto Musashi ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Lling It is a living story subtle and imaginative teeming with memorable characters many of them historical Interweaving themes of unreuited. 5 stars for sheer enjoyment and immersion in another time and culture This book has easily landed on my favourites list Despite its nearly thousand pages I was fully immersed in the story of Miyamoto Musashi and never felt like I was slogging through an enormous tome To be fair the beginning is a little rough but Eiji Yoshikawa does an excellent job at keeping things moving as we follow the famous sword saint of early Tokugawa era Japan in his growth from a callow bullying youth into a man attempting to attain perfection in both body and spirit through the Way of the SwordYoshikawa paints on a broad canvas indeed immersing the reader into the world of feudal Japan by showing us characters from all walks of life We meet not only the daimyo and samurai who ruled in this world but also the merchants craftsmen peasants and priests all of whom gave to the era and country its uniue character and flavour While the story centers on the life and growth of its titular protagonist Miyamoto Musashi it is truly an epic saga following the intertwined lives of many characters as they criss cross Japan searching for or trying to escape from each other Indeed there are so many coincidental meetings and near misses that it becomes something of a commonplace in the story In some ways I was reminded of Dumas while reading this book both authors first wrote in a serialized format that was later transferred to tomes of kitten suishing size many characters walk across the epic stage of history as plots and sub plots unfold to follow the life of our protagonist and despite its epic size and scope the prose is eminently readable and it s definitely a real page turner of romanticized historical fictionThe characters themselves are varied and colourful their stories brought to vivid life from the irascible old dowager Osugi and her feckless son Matahatchi who seek Musashi s downfall to the virginal Otsu and rambunctious Jotaro who become something of a family in their shared devotion to the vagabond swordsman Then of course there is Musashi himself the man destined to become the great sword saint and a man of intriguing complexity at times seeming little than a ragged vagabond with slight knowledge of the ways of the world and at others like an insightful philosopher finding wisdom and perceiving connections where others see nothing at all Of course one cannot fail to mention two of the most colourful characters in the story Sasaki Kojiro the great swordsman whose cocksure confidence and wily intellect along with his uneualed martial prowess make him Musashi s only possible peer and a real threat for the sword saint and Takuan the Buddhist monk who at times can seem little than a carefree and even clownish figure while at others he exhibits the harsh and uncompromising nature of a man of great intellectual and moral acuity Both prove to be interesting foils for Musashi and provide an intriguing study in similarity and contrasts to him As he travels the roads and fields of Japan Musashi takes advantage of every opportunity he can to learn He is especially keen to gain from the experiences of those he meets who appear to have sounded the depth of a particular art whether they be a craftsman obsessed with the creation of ceramics a courtesan versed in the art of music or an old woman expert in the niceties of the tea ceremony All who have viewed some aspect of life and art with honesty and rigour can teach him something which he is able to apply to the of the way of the sword It is this open mindedness that allows Musashi to avoid being a slave to any one style of martial arts and only in his eagerness to learn from all of his experiences is he able to overcome his many opponents and develop from nameless vagabond to the sword saint of legend While this is ostensibly the story of Musashi he is often absent from the pages for extended periods of time seemingly deserting the reader as he does the other characters in the story Luckily for us the characters that take over the narrative at these times are as noted above vivid and intriguing making the time spent with them never seem either wasteful or a slog It is through these absences that we truly come to see the extent of the influence Musashi has on the other characters Indeed the story is as much about the effect Musashi has on them both by his presence and his absence perhaps even so the latter as it is about his life and deeds as such In this I was reminded of the character of Able from Gene Wolfe s The Wizard Knight Both men are searchers after truth and wisdom through the way of the warrior whose actions have a profound effect on the people whose lives they touch Musashi s chi or spirit is so strong that not only is he able to master the sword and intimidate his opponents but he is also able to instill in others a sense of devotion and aweThis makes Musashi sound like little than a superhero but this is far from the case Yoshikawa still manages to make Musashi very human in his foibles and sense of inadeuacy Indeed despite his prowess Musashi does not come across as very much like a typical action hero at all that role is reserved for the suave and supremely confident Sasaki Kojiro Musashi is like a wide eyed innocent looking for the path to perfection but always certain it has escaped his grasp The book thus treads a fine line between romanticizing the Samurai ideology in the figure of Musashi and portraying some of the harsh realities of the warrior culture that allowed bullies and braggarts to rule Thus while we see one man s attempt to achieve the ideal represented by bushido the story acknowledges the harsh truths that were all too often the realityA really enjoyable book that is recommended to all lovers of historical fiction looking for an immersive and compelling experience of Tokugawa era Japan
