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.

Like Bombay of shantaram by Gregory the same about hongkong by James clavell . It was so good that you do not want to stop . You feel like listening it all the time .
This is my third book by James clavell
I had already read the last 2 about 30 years ago and I really enjoyed it.
Also saw the mini series of
I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.
I love James Clavell and have read all of his books before (including Noble House which I have read at least three times previously). This narrator is the best that I have heard for a James Clavell book on audible.
Noble House is a completely brilliant book, full of fabulous characters, excitement and Hong Kong.
I highly recommend this.
Quite a huge cast of characters, best to listen while not multi-tasking as you will find yourself rewinding often. A great plot, great performance, great book! This will not disappoint, now off to see the mini series to see how it compares.
I had read this story many years ago. The helter-skelter world of Hong Kong, corporate intrigue, and larger than life characters make this a great roller coaster ride.
The narrator was excellent. You could tell which character was speaking easily.
