INSIDE THE RED MANSION is the story of a young British journalist who, assigned to China by mistake, becomes fascinated by the country as it emerges into the 21st century. This story of intrigue, corruption, and shady characters explores China's incredible upheavals as its formerly closed society slowly opens to the modern world. Simon Vance's British accent makes him completely convincing as the main character. With excellent pacing he not only manages the innumerable scene, character, and plot transitions clearly, he also slips seamlessly between English and Mandarin. These shifts could be jarring, but Vance demonstrates why he's a multiple Earphones Award winner, accomplishing them so smoothly that the listener is never lost.
