it it was ok review of another edition This took me a while to finish, because it was trying to do two different things and ended up doing neither very well It seems like this book wants to be an exciting historical fiction, about a warrior entering a strange country where his appearance and skills propel him to the heights of power it also wants to be a serious historical look at Yasuke s life and era Unfortunately, the historical discussions keep the narrative from building up to much, and the attempts at a colorful narrative ma This took me a while to finish, because it was trying to do two different things and ended up doing neither very well It seems like this book wants to be an exciting historical fiction, about a warrior entering a strange country where his appearance and skills propel him to the heights of power it also wants to be a serious historical look at Yasuke s life and era Unfortunately, the historical discussions keep the narrative from building up to much, and the attempts at a colorful narrative make the history seem slanted towards racism and exoticism My favorite part of the book was the last sixty pages or so, after the conclusion of Yasuke s story and which of the six black guys in Japan he might have ended up as which is as awkward as that sounds we get a series of end notes about each chapter where the author explains details about his sources, historical asides that didn t make it into the text, and the thought processes that went into the research, all in a very nice conversational style I can t say that I really learned anything from reading this beyond the fact of Yasuke s existence, I can t shake the feeling that any or all of the details might have been made up for dramatic effect but I enjoyed the historiography, and those end notes might be worth consulting for other sources if one was interested flag Like see review Chris Carlisle Isn t a 2 star a little harsh though Was it that bad that it isn t even deserving of an okay average rating Jan 30, 2019 08 24AM Bentgaidin Chris wrote Isn t a 2 star a little harsh though Was it that bad that it isn t even deserving of an okay average rating Possibly a bit harsh migh Chris wrote Isn t a 2 star a little harsh though Was it that bad that it isn t even deserving of an okay average rating Possibly a bit harsh might be a bit influenced by my bookstore job, so I think of a lot of things in terms of how I d recommend them 5 stars are for everyone, 4 are great but maybe just for me, 3 are well written but not for me 2 stars are things I wouldn t recommend, for whatever reason, and 1 I d actively dissuade someone from reading.And this, unless someone was looking for this exact topic, isn t something I think I d suggest, because of it s neither fish nor fowl nature It s not that it s bad, per se, but that it s just kind of disappointing no matter what I went to it for It could probably gain a star with some heavy editing between now and publication, but that s not typically what ARCs are sent around for And of course, what I m looking for might just not be what the authors want out of there book in the first place Jan 30, 2019 11 45AM Peter rated it
