Review: Musashi


Musashi is one of the most notable men from Japanese History, and this book brings the story of this man to life. Musashi is a Ronin, a masterless samurai, who seeks to improve himself as a warrior. Musashi starts off as a rough young man, and through following the way of the sword he turns himself into a master of his form of combat. This story is about a man who goes on a journey to conquer himself to become a better man. Through his journey he crosses paths with other Masters and through each contact he overcomes the obstacles and learns from each event. The story builds up around Musashi and the people that get pulled into this man’s path, people can not help but get attached to this man because of his aura, and he prepares himself for the final battle and what differentiates himself from others is fighting outside the normal boundries of human thought, and putting himself on the line to prove his path. I have never been so engrossed in a book such as this, I have read this book three times since I picked it up over 7 years ago and everytime I read it I get the feeling of satisfaction from reading this book unlike I have gotten from any other.
