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 11 24PM 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 31, 2019 02 45AM Peter rated it it was
