A well-told story with good characters

This was a fun read from start to finish, with great characters and a compelling story. This was one of the two best novels I have read all year.


To say that HOUSE OF LORDS is a modernized GODFATHER may not do it justice. GODFATHER gave us a compelling look into a world we rarely glimpse, HOUSE OF LORDS however shows us what happens when that world spills out into our own. A frightening tale of intrigue and manipulation often times causes the reader to stop only to ponder the idea of man's essential nature. The way the organized crime world slides in and tears apart a seemingly happy healthy family is both jarring and fascinating. If we loved the GODFATHER, GOODFELLAS, WALL STREET, or BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES for showing us so clearly what different sections of American culture are like, HOUSE OF LORDS should be applauded for showing us what they are like when they collide full force, but beyond that HOUSE OF LORDS begs the question "who will survive the meeting." Especially in today's news where headlines are less about John Gotti's death and more about the decay of corporate America (ENRON, Martha Stewart, Worldcom, etc) this book can maybe help us understand the new crime families of the 21st century.

Couldn't put it down!

"House Of Lords" by Philip Rosenberg is a must read for poeple who enjoy a VERY well written, fast moving story that twists and turns with MANY surprises. Great characters! I usually can figure out where the author is going but not "House of Lords". A great surprise ending. I didn't want the book to end.
