Plan on a lot of time for listening to this three-part set, containing a total of 35 ninety-minute cassettes. Continuing Clavell’s saga of the Struan Noble House of Trading in the Far East, GAI-JIN chronicles young Malcolm Struan’s attempt to establish himself as tai-pan after his father's death. During the process, the young leader must navigate the treacherous waters of 1860s Japanese politics and his mother's disapproval of his choice of a bride. John Lee keeps the story moving on more than 50 hours of narrative. He captures multinational male and female characters and keeps dozens of players straight. Without his superior skill, the book would sink into the South China Sea. With it, the story sails right through to the final tape.
