Description

It is the early 19th century, when European traders and adventurers first began to penetrate the forbidding Chinese mainland. And it is in this exciting time and exotic place that a giant of an Englishman, Dirk Struan, sets out to turn the desolate island of Hong Kong into an impregnable fortress of British power - and to make himself supreme ruler: Tai-Pan!

Number one New York Times best-selling author James Clavell's works have become beloved modern classics. This critically acclaimed historical novel is another fine example of a master at work.

Tai-Pan Rerecorded

New narration, MUCH superior to the older version. Possibly Clavell's best historical novel and Gildart Jackson does it justice at last.

Great performance, albeit overacted on occasion

The novel was as epic as I remembered from my youth, and the reading brought excellent life on the characters. The voices beyond the reader's own scale (namele women and children) were often overacted and might have been better if read by a female, but overall score is five stars and an extra star sticker for effort.

Amazing book, amazing telling

I missed such great writing as Clavel presents in his books, and Jackson complement it perfectly with his unique narrative of each of the dozens of chief characters in the book. Truly amazing.

Brilliant!

Wonderful narration - no, performance by God! - of a complex and intriguing story. A rare feeling to feel sad that a book has ended, and rarer still to envy those that are yet to enjoy it.

Far from magnificent, but still enjoyable, heya!

It takes a while to get into the characters of this novel, but once comfortable with who's who, you can enjoy Clavell's storytelling. This novel is not as good as "Shogun," as the atmosphere is not as thick with the relevant oriental culture. But it's still enjoyable. The storyline meanders a bit and, I have to say, the ending is a little bit of a let down. But you can't expect perfection every time. Jackson's narration is first rate, though. He adapts to the characters really well, and allows you to follow the action and dialogue quite easily. "Heya!"

Incredible performance and story

Falls in line with "The Noble House" and "Shogun". All three are top of the line in terms of story. Both Ralph Lister and Gildart Jackson deliver outstanding believable performance

Unglaublich dieser Sprecher

Der Sprecher versteht es unglaublich gut, verschiedene Charaktere zum Leben zu erwecken. Die Geschichte ist spannend, eine der besten von James Clavell.

Einzigartig, fesselnd, genial

Eine Geschichte die den Leser in eine andere Zeit versetzt und dies mit einer Glaubwürdigkeit, dass man es fast als Dokumentationen ansehen könnte. Die Geschichte um den Tai-Pan fesselt bis zum Schluss, nicht zuletzt durch die grandiosen Figuren und den besten Sprecher für englische Hörbücher, den ich bisher gehört habe!
