    One thought on “Shike

    1. I don t in the end find this as moving as the author s All Things Are Lights, and no one will mistake this for a work of literary fiction, certainly Shea s style doesn t awe with beauty, and his structure is straightforward But the narrative flows, it s never dull, often suspenseful, and this is a true page turner It s also true that this does conflate Japanese history, mashing together the Gempei War 1180 1185 and the threatened Mongol invasions 1259 1281 , using pseudonyms for historical figur [...]


    2. Entregarse a leer libros que llegan a tener mil p ginas puede parece una tarea engorrosa Lamentablemente, termin Shik en un mes Y lo digo as , porque en estos momentos me siento perdido, un poco triste, maravillado Conoc a a Shea, pero no directamente le la Trilog a Illuminatus y nada m s Pero esta novela es otra cosa, es completamente distinta Primero, porque es de su propia autor a, y segundo, porque, bueno, es una novela m s cl sica La historia est ambientada en el Jap n medieval para ser pre [...]


    3. War, love, trust, betrayal, loyalty, swordfights it s all here, in a wonderful two book series, now out of print The action takes place in Japan and Chine at the time of Kublai Khan, when Japan had to defend itself against enemies outside and within.I was afraid, when I finished the first book, that the second book couldn t possibly be as good, but it was Also a fascinating look at how Japan has both helped and harmed itself with its rigid adherence to its customs.


    4. Amor, aventura, batallas, filosof a zen este libro tiene un poco o mucho de todo Debo decir que lo he le do pr cticamente de un tir n, a pesar de su longitud Es ameno, con una estructura muy clara y no contiene pasajes aburridos en los que la cabeza pueda distraerse de la historia Lo nico de lo que me quejo es de la traducci n Por momentos me ha parecido simple, incluso he tenido la sensaci n de que faltaba algo en algunos p rrafos Es una hermosa historia de amor, y tambi n un fant stico relato [...]


    5. This book has a lot to offer for the adventure lover The satisfying blend of action, adventure and eroticism set against the backdrop of Japan during the time of the Mongol conquests will make you root for the characters as they each try to make sense of their situation and cope in a manner fitting their own values instilled in them by there respective backgrounds Shea s style and storytelling lead me to wonder why he never became well known.


    6. Baru baca buku pertama nya penggambaran tentang kehidupan samurai, shike, keluarga bangsawan jepang di masa lalu sangat detail, sanggup membuat pembaca memahami dan menikmati dengan baik buku yang cukup asik, tapi bukan jenis buku yang bikin aku langsung beli karena penasaran dengan lanjutannya Makasih buat mas ary yang ngirimin buku ini karena aku gak pengen beli lanjutannya, aku mau berdoa aja, semoga mas ary salah beli buku lagi, jadi dikirim ke aku lagi P


    7. I expected and felt let down by the end.I am fine with Fiction over historical events times, but this renames clans, changes events, alters time frames in order to get a piece of Fiction to work.I would have preferred a completely Fictional story of the period or Fiction with involving period history not a mess of both.


    8. Shik es un libro de aventuras, repleto de acci n y sentimiento, que adem s invita a la reflexi n profunda sobre diferentes aspectos de la vida Sus personajes profundos y cambiantes se combinan con unos paisajes maravillosos y llenos de vida para crear una historia que no deja indiferente Es una lectura larga, pero merece la pena.



    9. The story is okay, I expect than this But, maybe it s just because the story just get started, it s book 1 of 4 afterall Like it than The Otori Clan, but not as good as Samurai.
