One thought on “The Miko

  1. Meichan

    it s a quite old book, and judging by its thickness and small fonts one may not be willing to read at all, but then again, once u ve started, u d be absorbed with a fluent narration, van Lustbader managed to tell us worlds apart the ancient Eastern minds and the Western minds each character is very strong, the plot is rationable and easily understandable for both eastern and western minds of those who read it meicHan

    Read this in the mid 90 s when just a horny teen the Ninja stuff and of course the sexy stuff blew my hormonal juvenile mind Haven t read this since, and I honestly don t know if I d like it just as much but a nostalgic 5 stars for sure for then at least.

    Worth reading as the sequel to The Ninja, however some of the sub plots were tedious Questionable physiological feats by the characters also lowered the score compared to The Ninja where these skills were perhaps believable Valuable source of information on Asian culture however, and definitely fills many gaps in my knowledge in an enjoyable manner.

  4. Robert Nacke

    I like this a lot ,it was a well written novel ,with a good story line.The various story line can be confusing ,but it adds intrigue into this book.Such a well rounded book with much excitement in it.I highly recommend to any who loves intrigue and the martial arts.

  5. Helen

    Eric Van Lustbader EVL is clearly a very smart eloquent man He paints vivid and often beautiful word pictures, and uses like a lot, as in the rain fell like, he threw dollars onto to the taxi drivers seat like, the sky darkened like, her skin was like very descriptive but sometimes a little too much He describes, although poetically, where it doesn t add to what you are reading, like gilding a lily see what I did there His plot is convoluted And I mean confusing It jumps back and forth in time, [...]

    Excellent readingVery Oriental Tantalising unstoppable Exposes the dark belly of Japan Nicholas Linnear is a surreal character so are his adversaries.

  7. Hud-c

    The Miko is the 2nd book from the Nicholas Linnear series Though it is related to the first The Ninja, the book is interdependent from it This has a whole new story and lots of characters introduced and to my displeasure, re introduced My problem with this is that it lacked the elements of suspense, thrill, and awe I felt reading on the first one Nicholas didn t wow me And the premise in which this book revolves tend to tear me off Yukio, again And then, Lew Croaker alive Eric Van Lustbader prob [...]

  8. Alex

    Frankly I am a bit disappointed with this book The Ninja , the first Nocholas Linnear book, is one of my favourite books, so when I found out that there are books featuring Nicholas I was really looking forward to devouring them Sadly my maybe impossibly high expectations were not satisfied Dont get me wrong The Miko is still a good book with fine suspense, some interesting martial arts scenes, very intense erotic and also provides a nice insight in japanese culture and phsychology as far as I, [...]

    Nicolas Linnear must face a dangerous foe that has a link to his past This mysterious foe also is determined to exact revenge on all the people that have impacted the outcome of their life This sets in motion the thriller that is faced paced and set in both the U.S and Japan.Linnear is a martial arts expert and has a life that is situated between the free wheeling society of the U.S and the structured Japanese culture He is from both worlds and continually struggles to find his place This series [...]

  10. Nana Marfo

    A fantastic, blockbuster sequel This book certainly surpassed the original A gripping action thriller set against the backdrop of the Cold War It had all the right ingredients action, violence, history, sex and intrigue All the characters were very well written and the plot fit neatly together A very solid work and all the justification needed for me to read then next one.

  11. J-Man

    Ovu kr inu od knjige sam napustio nekih 60 strana pred kraj, potpuno nezainteresovan za rasplet itanje mi je bilo jako naporno, pre svega zbog centralnog zapleta koji je nakaradan ak i za palp pojmove, kao i zbog tretmana glavnog enskog lika koji je ak i jednom seksisti i ovinisti kao to sam ja bio degutantan Izdanje je De je Novine Gornji Milanovac, kao i prva knjiga u serijalu, prevod Valerija Por Opet imamo Kju ia umesto Kju u a nau io sam i jednu novu re podgrlac.

  12. William Green

    Nicholas moves forward This is a biographical continuation of Nicholas Linnear in his quest for purpose Introduces new antagonists Well written with good character development This is the second reading for me Good insight into the Japanese history, mind set, and way of life Now it s on to White Ninja.

  13. Melvin Patterson

    Although I originally read this book in the 1980s, I enjoyed the story again having forgotten most of it in the intervening years If you can get past the anachronisms, its an intricate and complex story weaving together the past and the present, Eastern and Western cultures and some dynamic martial art sequences involving Ninjutsu, Aikido, Sumo and others.

  14. Vicki Beyer

    A very 80s story of modern, industrialized Japan still battling the ghosts of war, and somehow caught up in US Soviet cold war intrigues, to boot The author engaged in name dropping and placename dropping, but failed to grasp the Japanese spirit that he purported to be using as the crux of his tale.

  15. James Neal

    Is it just my love for Oriental philosophy that makes me love this author s works Maybe, but that doesn t cheapen Lustbader s talent for digging into the psyche of his characters and making them live and breathe as your reading.

  16. Osman

    need to read it again didnt read it with a critical eye at all, it was something to read.A very unusual combination of my favorites Russian spy thriller, Japananese ninja samurais, in a modern setting

  17. Theophilus (Theo)

    Martial arts, romance, mystics, and throw in the Japanese yakuza for good measure and you have another Lustbader author of the Bourne series smash hit Nicholas Linnear came before Jason Bourne If you liked the Bourne books, you ll love the Linnear series.

  18. Jikki

    If you like the mix of badass men, beautiful but sometime very dangerous women, facts from back then when it was written and a simply but excellent way of telling a story so it feels like you re standing there watching it all happen you ll like Miko

  19. Larry Lange

    Just couldn t get into in but part of the problem was I only had 8 days left when I started and it is long.

  20. Linda

    Economics and history ad nauseum Oh, and the sex everyone reads him for is not as good as 50 Shades which I hated Disappointment abounds.

  21. Rick Royster

    Lustbader prose at times is mesmerizing This is a great series with a great cast of characters I thoroughly enjoyed it Maybe we ll get part 7 down the line

  22. Mark Stone

    Few authors can write about characters such as these and make them believable Lustbader does it easily and does it with style.
