    If you have read other books by James Clavell, you will enjoy this book as well. This takes place during WWII in a POW Camp and is just a good read.

  • Classic story about survival Oct 23, 2008

    I bought this book again having read it years ago. I looked beyond the basic story of the captured soldier living in a Japanese camp who uses prisoners and guards alike to run a black-market business. Instead I interpreted the theme as a means to assist the prisoners in overcoming their misery and finding a mutual cause to either overthrow or join the enterprise.
