Editorial Reviews:

In the days the shogun ruled Japan, two hundred samurai suffered a grave insult when their master met an unjust death. Forty-seven of them were courageous enough to avenge him. A lowly servant to one of the brave samurai is Jiro, who calls himself a "fly on the wall." Choosen as his master's unlikely spy during the planning of the great revenge, Jiro must know when to talk and when to listen lest he lose his head to a Samurai testing the sharpness of his sword. As Jiro plays his small part in the plan of the forty-seven samurai, he searches for his own identity in the barbaric society of feudal Japan.

Summary: The revenge of the forty-seven samari
Comment: This book was mainly about how a kingdom in Japan which had a lord. However this lord was in a great battle. He lost the war and with losing as a warlord it is a disgrace and they would have to commit the act of seppuku where "they have to their head cut off". With this army losing their lord to another army they are on a long and patient quest to get revenge for their lord.

This book I think was a good book, it could be slow at some times but then something big would happen. The author made you want to stay in it until the end.

Some of the things that were good in this book was when they started to make there move on to the enemy. Out of all the parts the best was the last chapter when they got there revenge for there lord.

But there was some parts that were not so good. There was many parts in the book that were slow and hard to follow. In the first chapter when they got their new lord all it was about was facts about the lord, and people coming to meet this new lord.

So over all the book was farly good , but I do belive some pople would not like it, but others would relly like it.
