I found this hefty softcover in this new-to-me Little Free Library in Gloucester, MA while dropping off some books of my own, and nabbed it for another release copy.

I'd read the novel ages ago and enjoyed it, in part for the variety of characters - including some rather chilling ones - and the massive amount of culture clash. There's great beauty, almost unimaginable cruelty, and some impressive examinations of prejudices on all sides - not to mention the friendships, loyalties, and star-crossed-lovers aspects. (The 1980 mini-series adaptation was decent, though some of the impact of the characters' inner thoughts and motives was lost. The new 2024 mini-series airs soon and might be interesting.)

[There's a TV Tropes page on Clavell's "Asian Saga", of which this is the first book.]
