"47 Ronin Story" is the classic Japanese story of Lord Asano of Ako and one of the bloodiest vendettas in Japan's feudal history. In a shocking clash between the warriors and the merchant class of seventeenth century Japan, there emerged the most unlikely set of heroes--the forty-seven ronin, or ex-samurai, of Ako.

レビュー

"The book contains a new foreword by Stephen Turnbull, the historical advisor for 47 Ronin and the author of more than 50 books on military history. …As Turnbull says in his foreword: 'The raid of the Forty Seven Ronin holds a unique place in Japanese history. There is nothing quite like it, and John Allyn's masterful re-retelling of the tale captures for modern readers much of the excitement with which the Japanese populace of the mid-eighteenth century would have responded to what for them was the equivalent of a newspaper sensation.'" —Publishers Weekly

"Fans of samurai will enjoy this retelling of a classic story of revenge and loyalty." —Japan Powered blog

5つ星のうち 5.0 My Favorite Telling of the 47 Ronin Story 2013/1/7
投稿者 Wing - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I first went to Sengakuji Temple (the burial site of the 47 Ronin) about 20 years ago, just as a tourist thing and not knowing the background of the temple or the story of the 47 Ronin. I was inexplicably moved by the visit, and found a copy of John Allyn's book at an English-language bookstore in Tokyo. I instantly loved the story and Allyn's telling of it.

The climatic event took place over 300 years ago and much of the details have been lost to history, but Allyn clearly has a solid grasp of traditional Japanese culture and history and fills in the holes believably and elegantly. Allyn's style is descriptive yet clear and very enjoyable. You get a immersive feeling of the period, but it never gets bogged down.

I was delighted to discover this book had finally come to Kindle. I have read several English-language books on the 47 Ronin over the past 20 years, but I consider this one to be the definitive telling of the tale. The story of the 47 Ronin is one of the most beloved in Japanese history, and for anyone with even a passing interest in it, this is a must-read.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Well Worth Reading 2014/9/15
投稿者 Erich Ball - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
For those unfamiliar with the story, the 47 Ronin are one of the central stories from the time of the Samurai in Japanese culture. In the same way that stories of the Court of King Arthur might resonate with Anglos, this resonates with Japanese. It illustrates some of the central tenets of honour, persistence and courage that were admired in and from that period.

Essentially, a Samurai warlord was betrayed at court and killed. That left his samurai retainers in a difficult position as they became ronin - samurai with no master. This was a difficult, shameful, thing in those days but they chose to embrace it as they sought to follow the higher dictates of honour and seek revenge. The ending is not a Western ending but is powerful and appropriate.

This is a good reconstruction of the times, well written and appears to be faithful to known history. It is of course fictionalised history but it is fiction done well. This is a good yarn, which will entertain you as you comfort yourself that you're actually studying history. Lots of good action scenes, lots of fun and a satisfying ending.
5つ星のうち 4.0 good historical fiction for light reading 2014/3/1
投稿者 Matthew Ashmore - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Before I launch into the review proper, I need to mention that this book is the first time that I have read the story of the 47 ronin. As a result, I’ll be evaluating this book as a standalone story rather than an adaption. In order to consider it an adaption, I need a baseline to compare it to, a baseline that I do not have.
If you think about this book as a historical narrative, then it is horrible and not worth the time. However, its description never made it seem like a historical narrative at any time. Instead, it was designed and marketed as a book of historical fiction that was meant to entertain, a task that it accomplishes fairly well. John Arryn has obviously done his research and is able to describe Japanese culture of the time period very well. He also does it in a way that someone unfamiliar with the culture can understand.
Unfortunately, the story moves somewhat slowly, but that is not a fault with the author himself. Most of the story itself is about the ronin waiting for the right time to attack the person they wish to kill. While the action may not be the focus, I found it enjoyable to watch the inner dynamics of the group, which is what the story focused on. One other downside that I found annoying was the portrayal of the ronin as unmistakable heroes and as the antagonists as clearly vile villains. I prefer when both sides of a story are portrayed. While not every other is capable of doing it, the book has a clearly drawn line of the two sides with not a lot of wiggle room. The good guys are clearly the good guys, and the bad guys are clearly the bad guys.
All in all, it’s a good book for light reading.
5つ星のうち 5.0 A Japanese Classic 2014/2/17
投稿者 David M - (Amazon.com)

This is one of the most famous stories in Japan about 47 Ronin (masterless Samurai) who bide their time and eventually take revenge for the loss of their lord. The author has impressive credentials and I expected to read a good telling. I used to own a book titled Chushingura-The 47 Ronin-when I was stationed in Japan in the early 1970s and it even had fold-out wood block prints about the events. But it was lost in a house fire and when I searched, I couldn't find it so I looked for one that was highly rated and ended up with this one. I was fascinated to read in the forward that this "classic drama based on a fictionalized account of an actual historical event" may have actually swapped the good guys and bad guys based on popular sentiment at that time to provide an uplifting account of samurai virtue and honor. It had me reading the story with a different perspective. It has also been made into countless plays and over 40 film versions. I did thoroughly enjoy this trip down memory lane.
5つ星のうち 3.0 Classic story but not a modern-day thriller. 2014/8/30
投稿者 J. Schulte - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
This is a classic story, retold here in somewhat stilted language.

47 Ronin is based on an historical event in feudal Japan and the story is part of the culture and mythology. Because I was going to visit Japan, I was interested in reading books set there. 47 Ronin fit the bill and I enjoyed reading it while also being able to visit some of the temples and castles and grounds mentioned in the book. The book helped me visualize 18th century Japan.

But the prose and story telling is somewhat stilted and awkward. If you want to understand this event, then this book will help bring it to life. The foreword also includes some interesting historical context that helps separate the reality from the mythology. But if you're looking for an exciting tale of adventure and revenge, there are many other books available that would be more gripping.
