Breathtaking. Only terms like colossal, gigantic, titanic, unbelievable, gargantuan are properly descriptive
Seethes with drama, sex, crime . . . Clavell is, as always, a matchless talespinner
A grand drama, with the glamour, mystique and perils of the Orient . . . it has such breadth and power that at the end you will want to start at the beginning again.
NOBLE HOUSE totally fulfils the function of a novel, taking me out of myself and transporting me into a majestic sweep of intrigue and excitement
