    Business is war This is the fourth novel of the Asian Saga by James Clavell.

    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 equal 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 beg

    Another fantastic part of Clavell s Asian Saga, this continues the story of the Noble House, created by Dirk Struan in Tai Pan continued in Gai Jin It is set in Hong Kong takes place over a week or so in 1963 There are a LOT of words for such a short time period It s not as tight a story as Tai Pan, but similar in many other respects.Tai Pan took place in 1841, the founding of Hong Kong It follows the trials tribulations of Dirk Struan Thi

    The follow up to Tai pan Clavell famously visited Hong Kong and ingratiated himself with the high society of the island He based his story around many real events, which he garnered from those very same socialites The building that tumbled down the mountain side during inclement weather was owned by my old landlord, Oscar Wong He used to tell me of the day james Clavell came to interview him about that night An epic battle between the Jardine s, Swire and the new

    This epic saga of a great British mercantile house in Hong Kong in the early 1960s is a 1400 page tome whose plot takes place in the space of one week The action in the novel is intense In Noble House, you get the feel of a staunchly capitalistic Hong Kong, a place that makes the setting of The Jungle look like a worker s paradise Clavell s hero, like most of Clavell s heroes, is an alpha male and the absolute monarch of the family business which controls much of Hong Kong s commerce and po Thi
