Oh dear, what to read on long haul flight to Los Angeles? I chose this because "King Rat" was so good and I was struggling to find anything else to take my fancy. I gave this a good six hours of reading, but it didn't grab me, and I left it in a hotel drawer in Valencia for someone else to have a go.

Clavell's works aren't the deepest, most intellectual books you'll ever read but they're easy to read and very entertaining.
