I have mixed feelings. While the book provides a very detailed look at the customs and day-to-today life of feudal Japan, to me the characters sound like they’re from modern times. I was constantly having to remind myself that this was set in the 1500s. If you don’t mind the occasional modern turn of phrase, though, this book offers a satisfying glimpse into a little-known—to Westerners at least—world.

Disappointing. I J Parker's Akitada Sugawara mystery novels are more interesting books set in historic Japan.
