Sintesi dell'editore

This spellbinding adventure is a literary triumph that proves once again why James Clavell's books have become modern classics.

Set in Hong Kong in 1963, the action of Noble House spans scarcely more than a week, but these are days of high adventure: from kidnapping and murder to financial double dealing and natural catastrophes - fire, flood, landslide. Yet they are also days filled with all the mystery and romance of Hong Kong - the heart of Asia - rich in every trade...money, flesh, opium, power.

Long winded

A bit too much emphasis on how wonderful, brainy and supremely talented all the major players seem to be, either I have lived under a gooseberry bush for 67 years or no nothing of the opposite sex, for the men in this novel are love makers with talents unknown to mere mortals, this to me is a world not open to the common man,made me feel most inadequate, can one really be a top notch jockey, brilliant swordsman, fantastic businessman, awesome sailor, love maker from the gods, superb linguist, racing driver extraordinaire, fighter pilot to rank alongside the Red Baron and swimmer to rival Mark Spitz, oh and so tall and handsome, and I thought jockeys were quite small personage.

Epic is right!

Long but worth it really grabs you and doesn't let go...
Fast, and still modern .. Can't recommend it enough really exciting and heartbreakingly good but the timing and you won't regret it

Lengthy but superb

Superbly read , this was a treat from start to finish, a true epic. Very evocative and interesting listen, certainly worth the investment even if it did take weeks to complete

Outstanding

I loved the way that each character had a distinct voice that clearly portrayed the influence of being Asian, English, European or from the States. A must for anyone who has read the book as Hong Kong comes to life.

Good but not great.

In comparison to shogun and tai pan it is not as good. Slow starter but it does get going.
