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.

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

Good but not great.

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

Really great yarn, dreadful narration.

I love James Clavell novels - they are all great stories with excellent pilots and character development. I also like getting a sense of what life was like in these historical situations. Hong Kong is so much in ours minds now.

What a shame that Ralph Lister makes such heavy weather of Noble House. I very nearly gave up after the first couple of hours as the narration was really getting on my nerves. It would be worth getting this rerecorded to avoid putting listeners off the whole series.

Great plot vividly brought to life.

So many twists and turns in this story. I took off one star due to the sexism, which shows the age that this was written. The narration really makes this 50hr book seem pocket sized.

Let down by narration

Listen to the John Lee version - no comparison! Could not listen to this. Good story, though.

Simply a Wonderful Story

An epic tale woven into the fabric of Hong Kong and China. Fantastic performance by the narrator makes this memorable

Outstanding!

I read this book 30 years ago, loved it then, listening to it now proved to be an even better experience. Being reminded of some of the wonderful characters made it so enjoyable. Great narration by Ralph Lister, I know I will listen to it again.
