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.

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.

Stop shouting!

I love this book and was looking forward to listening, but the narrator just shouts instead of reading. Unbearable to listen to.

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

Prescient

Possibly the best of the series. A bit dated but how Clavell predicted the future with the demise of soviet Russia and the rise of the Middle Kingdom. Being the only civilized culture in the world we now face the hegemony Of the PRC and world domination by Xu Xinping.. The decline of the west and Trump ‘s presidency we now face an uncertain future

Twist upon twist

Brilliant story. Plot within plot. Trust is a mistake. Just do not know what will occur next.
