Publisher's Summary

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.

It can’t touch Shogun.

I loved Shogun. I enjoyed Tai Pan. It’s no Shogun but it was fun.

This book is a trite soap opera. It’s so bad that I’m angry with the author for making me doubt Shogun’s excellence.

I suppose everyone must make a living.

Good but it's no Shogun.

Good but it's no Shogun. The narrator is good but his American accent is grating.

Awesome, though not clavell's best.

First of all, Shogun and Taipan are in a different league, in my opinion. With that in mind, I really enjoyed Noble House, as an exciting and interesting yarn. The characters and history create a sense of reality, although the timeline is pretty incredible. A great read, and a good listen. the reader took a chapter or two, but did well, especially with the multitude of both Asian and European voices.

I liked the audio version better than print

There are a lot of characters and a lot of business transactions mixed in with a healthy dose of intrigue and side stories. A fun story.

Brilliant fairy tale ending

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.

One of my favs

I have read and listened to all of Clavell's books and this one, along with Shogun and Tail Pan are among my all time favotites.. This book made horrific Los Angeles traffic a joy - 3 hours a day . I couldn't wait to get into the car! So sad when it ended. I'll do it again in 10 years.
