Publisher's Summary

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.
