Review:

So abundant in sub-plots, characters, intrigue and atmosphere that its 1,000-plus pages seem barely adequate. Some of the most enjoyable reading around. (Daily Mail)

'Clavell seems to creep inside the very soul of the land and the people . . . A damn good read' (Boston Herald)

WHIRLWIND is strongly structured, skilfully plotted, rich in detail and very entertaining. Clavell brings the grimness and grandeur of an ancient land to life (San Francisco Chronicle)

James Clavell does more than entertain. He transports us into worlds we've not known, stimulating, educating, questioning . . . a wonder of detail (Washington Post)

The author handles the plot with all the confident authority of a ring-master, keeping a half-dozen themes and a formidable cast of characters moving along at a cracking pace. By the end I was breathless and lost in admiration at the sheer professionalism of it all (Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description:

James Clavell's classic portrayal of the Iranian revolution at its height in fresh new packaging to appeal to a new generation.
