TAI-PAN

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Lee

Historical Fiction • 27 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1966

In the early nineteenth century, a giant of an Englishman sets out to turn the desolate, rocky island of Hong Kong into a British power and to make himself the island's ruler--the TaiPan. So begins James Clavell's sequel to Shogun, his 1960s bestselling Asian saga. Books on Tape has produced a new audiobook of TaiPan, narrated by John Lee, which is indisputably worthy of its special "Collector's Edition" label. American John Lee enlivens the long, involving story with a stunning range of voices and characterizations. Pitchperfect accents make the personalities that Lee portrays unusually vivid. His use of inflection and conversational pacing contributes to giving the listener an experience that is as visual as it is auditory. A production to savor. A.C.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
