“There are no buts, my son. True there are degrees of honor — but one man can have only one code. Do what you like. It’s your choice. Some things a man must decide for himself. Sometimes you have to adapt to circumstances. But for the love of God guard yourself and your conscience — no one else will — and know that a bad decision at the right time can destroy you far more surely than any bullet!”

― James Clavell, King Rat

Shogun Review

Shogun is one of the great books to read that gives insight into Japanese culture and politics but it is not great literature. The book was recommended by my father when I was 13. He said it is a good book, to begin with, considering that I’m only 13 years old. I have read this book around 25 times and when I read this book I feel sophisticated and educated.
