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

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.

Disappinted

Not a patch on Tai Pan. Too many accounts of individuas not connectedwith main story. I found this boring as main plot was very good.

An epic story, read by my favourite narrator

I thought the beginning was a little slow, but it picks up significantly. As with previous James Clavell books, it takes a while to really get to know all the characters. The story runs deep, the characters are lively, and theltural references give an amazing insight into the place.

Exceptional and original work. Exemplary.

Exceptional and original work with characters that felt as though you had known them all your life. The Narrator brought this to life with a range of voices and characterisations that have to be heard to be believed. My only complaint is that I have now completed the whole series......I suppose I will have to start again. Thank you for a brilliant series of books...…"Four Finger Wong" Really !!!..... Loved all of it. Mr. Stephen D. Woods-Shepherd. M.Sc., B.Sc. (Hons.).

Many characters, many plots, disaster and triumph,

Fantastic listen, you'll fall in love with some and detest others, you'll believe the truth only to be proved wrong. The journey sucks you into the vortex of easy money and unlimited power. Choosing not to read this book will be a regret you'll never know!
