this is the second or third time I read this book in the last 30 years I really enjoyed it I think about James clavell's Asian series I like this almost as much as I like Shogun there were a lot of layers to it a very good book
I read this book over 35 years ago. It was very good but having it read, unfortunately, makes it boring. I couldn't finish it.
An all time favorite and the range of the reader gave huge effect to the authors words! Beautifully done!
Great series. Wish the interludes between books were MUCH shorter! I would have like to have known about Blackthorn's life in "Shogun" and how the Shogun shaped feudal Japan. What Tess does AFTER Malcolm dies. What lengths Angelique and her husband go to to destroy Noble House. I wish there would have been specific books about "The Noble House" in closer incremental years then the vast years that the series is set over. We go from Japan being opened to the west, and then to "modern" Hong Kong in the 60s. Gee....what awesome events that happened from 1800s Japan trading and modern "times$.
This is one of the most exciting books I have read, but is it really reading when you listen? The excellent story and narrator made my daily commute change from a drag to not long enough. Enjoy...
