Brilliant!

This book was great! It was as satisfying to read as Shogun. The characters (and their colloquial expressions!) are very colorful. The book is filled with so many amazing ingredients of drama. The tragic ending was very powerful and reminded me of some of the writin...
This book was great! It was as satisfying to read as Shogun. The characters (and their colloquial expressions!) are very colorful. The book is filled with so many amazing ingredients of drama. The tragic ending was very powerful and reminded me of some of the writings of the famous Russian writers. This book is worth reading over and over!

An excellent book.

One of my favorite parts was when the guys on Struan's board of directors were surprised that Casey was a woman.

    Disappointing

    Characters are one dimensional. Plot is not engaging. If you want to read more interesting historical fiction, try the Edward Rutherfurd books instead.

    Okay, but not great...

    Noble House was a bit longer than it needed to be. I think the author spent too much time on the plot involving the KGB and Brian Kwok. But it was an OK novel and it was interesting I have to give it that. I learned a lot about big business in Hong Kong in the 60's, and how ruthless businessmen can be. And the characters seemed like 'real' people to me. The ending was sad but in a way triumphant as well.
