    This book shows real loyalty, determination, and trust

    Three attributes that most people wish they strongly had: Loyalty, Determination, and Trust. Each of the 47 Ronin, or masterless samurai, had each of these traits. They have an undieing loyalty to their master, who didnt deserve his death, they have great determination and let nothing stop them from their duties at all costs. And they have trust, because each of them would trust one another with their life. This is a GREAT book and it describes in detail how real loyalty, determination, and trust should be. I think that there isn't anything bad about this book, and tells a touching story.I never knew samurai cared so much about honor and I wish people today cared about their family's honor. I think the book tells the Ronin story extremely well even though 'many details have been lost to history' says John Allyn, in the summary on the back of the front cover of my book. I recommend this extremely good book to anyone who would like to learn about samurais or honor & duty. I hope the people that decide to read this enjoy it as much as I did.
