Summary Noble House

Noble House Read & Download ☆ 4 Over one hundred years have passed since Dirk Struan founded Hong Kong's oldest trading company But now the In many ways this is my favorite Clavell novel I m kind of a big sucker for it It s a huge vastly sweeping epic contained entirely within a single week in Hong Kong It s a blockbuster of a novel in every sense bringing eual amounts of entertainment and intellectual provocation There s something else going on in this novel which gives it added joy for those who have devoured the rest of the Asian saga in Noble House Clavell begins to tie together the characters from all his other novels The story focuses on the decendants of the characters in Tai Pan while decendants of the characters of Shogun also make appearances And Peter Marlowe who is Clavell s stand in for himself from King Rat runs throughout the novel as a fairly important subplot as an author who has recently achieved literary success with a novel about Changi and is now researching a novel about Hong Kong a delightful piece of hyper fiction which makes the reader all the aware that this fictionalized world is based on real people the Struans of this world being based on the real life Jardines

Noble House Read & Download ☆ 4 Noble House is in danger As Hong Kong itself becomes the deadly playground of the CIA the KGB and the Peop Ding dong the witch is dead 6 months and 1400 pages later I have finally finished this massive door stopper of a novel and the best I can say about it is that its better than Gai jin the massive tome about Struan s in 1870s Japan which also took me most of a year to get through I ve been reading a book of Clavell s Asian Saga per year since college a privileged position on my reading list accorded to him because I so enjoyed Shogun Tai pan and King RatThe plot of this novel moves at a snail s pace for 1100 pages and only picks up after that at which point you ve been reading for months and still have an euivalent of a reasonably sized novel to go The plot meanders through about 20 sub plots only half of which get resolved to any satisfaction and some of which get resolved by deus ex machina in a highly unsatisfactory way As always the magic of Clavell is in bringing a time and place to life as he brought to life 1500s Japan and 1840s Hong Kong He does that here as well but the problem is that 1960s Hong Kong is too familiar to be interestingI will say there are interesting bits The politics are fascinating with the main character arguing emphatically that the US and Britain should help out the PRC on the grounds that they are thorns in the sides of the USSR which is the real threat This to the point of selling materials to China to create nuclear weapons and helping the Thread of the Silkworm guy to defect in order to secure the Bank of China s aid during a monetary crisis The gender politics are a fascinating mix of Randian ideas of self sufficiency and a kind of parochial British love of the nuclear family The action is also fascinating since all of it takes place in scenes of tense negotiation in board rooms and pool halls and race tracks rather than in any kind of violenceAnd I will say that I enjoyed the last 300 pages or so when the pace picked up and stuff started being tied together But none of that makes up for a plot that is too long and convoluted and which takes 1000 pages to get moving
