Its rather enjoyable if you can stomach 1200 pages.

There was a span of two weeks I saw a lot of praise for it a little while ago. Haven't seen much recently though I think it is well received here.

I loved it when I was a teenager, but the incorrect names really tickle my autism now. There are some good jerk off scenes

I enjoyed Shogun. Pleb prose but the plot and setting kept me interested enough. Plenty of action, intrigue and sexy JAV waifus to fap to.

Can you elaborate on this at all? How are there good jerk off scenes?
>>
>>7667957
Mostly anjin-san and his interpreter who was a married woman cucking her husband for some white fever side action. It's been a while since I read it but I think anjin-san also had a wife, a geisha and a maid. I decided that the interpreter looked like Ayumi Shinoda but you may choose your own JAV star if you so desire.

There was also a sadistic bad guy who got some boipussy.

Oh and I forgot the toys scene. The interpreter has Anjin San try out a cock ring and those balls on a string you stick up a pussy and then slowly pull out.
>>
>>7667796
Yeah I don't know why he fictionalized the historical characters when they were clear stand ins for certain people. Did he really just get it wrong?

Clavell power ranking:

Shogun = Taipan > Noble House >> King Rat > Whirlwind House >>> Gaijin
>>

I have Gaijin on my to read list, what went wrong?
>>
>>7667686
It's really fucking good, so is Tai Pan. Read it if you want to learn about Japanese culture and history.
>>
>>7668170

It's a matter of personal opinion. I for one would put gaijin before taipan.

It has a lot of subplots, some of which are boring and feel unnecessary - but some are extremely good.
>>
It's pleb tier literature but I like it because the book is nice and heavy, the sentences are short and it satisfies my autistic fetish for dense, unnecessarily long books.
