It seems like it would be great. Stephanie The movie John Wick is very loosely based on the book.

I’m not sure if Shibumi is a genuine concept in Japanese culture, but it is plausible, and it made a deep impression on me. The story, I found, was well written and engaging, and the characters liibro intriguing. See 2 questions about Shibumi…. Lists with This Book. Ma anche doppio sigh: Sibumi pagine per raccontare una storia molto datata che avrebbe bisogno di molte meno pagine.

Ma soprattutto avrebbe bisogno di una mano di scrittore meno banale, meno mediocre. I lettori, invece, sembrano meno entusiasti. Un nome che viene usato a ripetizione. Eccetera… Odissea nello Spazio ha 50 anni e rimane un capolavoro. Sgibumi all 4 comments. Dec 27, Shibumi is, without question, the stupidest book I have ever read.

Shibumi is the Yankees of stupid books. John Grisham and Dan Brown, working together, operating at the peak of their vaguely misogynist, airport-novel spewing powers, could never hope to approach the mind-exploding stupidity of this book. He is the least plausib Shibumi is, without question, the stupidest book I have ever read. He is the least plausible, most ridiculous character in all of western fiction. He can kill any opponent, bed any woman, and presumably bed any opponent As the book jacket states, Hel is the ultimate assassin, but he cares not for such things, preferring instead to meditate on eastern philosophy in his enormous Basque castle and go spelunking yes, seriously emerging only to collect new female acolytes for sex training.


I will leave it to you bright sparks to figure out who triumphs in the end. In my research for Shibumi quotes, I came across a wiki on bookshelved.

They express incredulity that Amazon reviews the pibro as a straight thriller.

One refers to the book as”pure camp” and “one long piss take” from cover to cover. This is food for thought. If Shibumi shubumi written as satire, my rating would immediately go from 1 star to four or 5. There is no denying that this book is funny.

The Wiki on Trevanian nee Robert Whitaker, university professor could be interpreted as evidence. Surely an educated man would not have created this thinly veiled masturbatory fantasy for ineffectual 12 year old boys in earnest? He must be joking I just don’t know. Suffice to say, Shibumi stands alone. It is, to borrow from my main man Neal Stephenson, fractally librk meaning that if you were to examine any minute aspect of it, that aspect would be as stupid as the book in its entirety.

Shibumi by Trevanian

You know, since the late s or so the Lobro has become the favored “whipping boy” I apologize for the cliche given my complaints about the book. I was tempted to put in a link to I picked this up because it’s been selected by a group I’m in as a group read. That’s the wall where nameless stars are inset in a wall for agents killed in the line liro duty.

Need I say that I realize the CIA has some “asses” and the I know linro operations were quite probably far from kosher. Then again there are bad cops, soldiers who run or turn traitor and so on. I know, I was in in the early kibro discharged in ‘ I was once cursed by a teen for wearing my Class A uniform. Here we open going right down shibkmi line with so many cliches I figure they must have come from somewhere like “plots and characters are us”.

We are also covering up global warming because we are obviously slaves of the “Military Industrial Complex”. Obviously he’s not only evil he’s stupid We watch as the CIA pulls off an assassination and then kills their own men the assassins I find the book derivative, predictable and cliche ridden.

Enjoy this if it’s what you like. I’m happy for you. I can’t recommend it. I must really be missing something. A quick internet search locates many favourable reviews of both this book, and of its author, Rodney William Whitaker aka Trevanianwho apparently positioned himself as someone who read Librp, but not much else written in the 20th century.

Consider this statement from Wikipedia: Shibumi is elaborately written, using a very extended vocabulary, based on a sound knowledge in history and geopolitics, switching easily from pessimism to wry humor, Shibumi is mo I must really be missing something. Shibumi is elaborately written, using a very extended vocabulary, based on a sound knowledge in history lirbo geopolitics, switching easily from shibymi to wry humor, Shibumi is more than a mere thriller, and may be compared to other works such as Brave New World, Nineteen Eighty-four and Fahrenheit However, I have seldom read or listened to a more inept, poorly-written thriller, and the comparison to the three great works referred to is ludicrous.


The characters in Shibumi are absurd stereotypes, the writing-style is awkward clearly if the author indeed read Proust extensively, he absorbed littleand the plot-line is as weak as cheap coffee. Sibumi romani, oglanci, mikropenisli, etnik bir espri olan aptal araplarla, nedense herhangi bir sifatla tanimlanmamis olan israilliler arasindaki kavganin, enerji kaynaklarinin, hukumetlerin ve akla gelebilecek her seyin dolayisiyla da tum dunyanin kontrolunu elinde tutan zenginlere sorun cikarmasindan kaynak trevenian mahlasini kullanan yazar her kimdiyse her seyi yanlis anlamis, humanizmi de, dinginlik halini de, asaleti de, cinselligi de, kultur farkini da her seyi ama herseyi yanlis anlamis.

Film tadinda bir kitap okumak isterseniz okuyabilirsiniz bu kitabi ama o film berbat bir hollywood aksiyon filmi bunu da bilin bir daha boyle bir kitap okursam iki olsun. I do like a good junk-food book from time shinumi time, but this one is just silly and contemptuous. I suspect the author was playing an elaborate joke on the reader, dressing up hollow nihilism and tired screeds against the bourgeoisie with second-hand Japanese mystic-chic cliches.

Dovrebbero esserci le stelle nere. Nella mia vita da lettore, ne ho lette di porcherie, ma questa entra di diritto nell’Olimpo delle Stupidate.

Non si capisce bene davanti a cosa ci troviamo di fronte: Italiani, Americani, Francesi, Inglesi, Whibumi, etc Mentre sei siete Giapponesi o Baschi, allora siete vicini alla perfezione sulla Terra. Ma se io facevo la ola ogni volta che questo le prendeva. Mettiamolo per inciso, che se non abitate in un castello sui Pirenei, non siete stato il miglior assassino al mondo shibumj adesso che siete stanchi non passate tutta la giornata a fare snibumi tantriche, siete delle merde.

Ma vogliamo mettere poi l’antagonista di questa storia? E allora come cacchio ti fai a far fregare alla fine del libro come un pistola qualunque? Ma lasciamo pure stare il grande co-protagonista “Le Cagot”, o la sublime amante Hana, o la spaurita ragazzina trombata pure questa che va in giro ad uccidere terroristi a destra e a manca e poi si fa uccidere mentre raccoglie i fiori, dopo la trombata col shbumi si era innamorata porella. Questo dovrebbe essere un libro di Spy-Story.

San Ludlum, aiutaci tu.

Shibumi by Trevanian (1 star ratings)

May 18, Gary rated it did not like it. By the verbose balls of Trevanian! I so wanted to read this book because of my belief that it would have more to do with Japanese culture beyond Go.

Not so-what a disappointing book. I should have realized that I was in for a bit of snobbery-maybe even some hubris-when the author decided to dedicate this book to libdo memory” of four of his characters.
