Tai-Pan by James Clavell. Tai-Pan starts its story in with the founding of Hong Kong. The main character Dirk Struan, otherwise known as Tai-Pan, is a China Trader and head of The Noble House, the leading trading company in the orient at that time/5(7). ‘Tai-Pan’, another novel from James, wasn’t as fortunate, receiving a movie adaptation in starring Joan Cheri and Bryan Brown that failed at the box office even while receiving numerous negative reviews. ‘Noble House’ was better received.

Truth be told, I think this was better written than Shōgun James Clavells Tai-Pan book though I actually liked the book set in Japan better. Tai-Pan is more streamlined, more focused on its subject and narrative. Tai-Pan was Clavells second book, first published inand is coincidentally also the second chronological book in his Asian saga of books/5.

“Tai-Pan” is the second book in the Asian Saga series by James Clavell. At this point, I’ve only read “Shogun”. The other books are “Gai-Jin”, “King Rat”, “Noble House”, and “Whirlwind” (out-of-print).

“Shogun” is one of my favorite historical novel so I had very high expectation of “Tai-Pan”; perhaps too high/5. I first had the chance to discover James Clavell by reading his epic novel 'Shogun'. The 2nd book in the Asian sage, 'Tai-Pan' continues on the same high note of epic storytelling, interesting characters and interesting dialogue/5().

Eat your heart out John le Carre, James Clavell is here with "Noble House," 1, pages long, 2 1/2 inches (not counting covers) thick and 3 pounds and 13. What can I say about ‘Tai-Pan’. Is it really a Historical novel. Is it a Alternative History. These are the two questions I keep asking myself while working my way through the late James Clavell’s Asian saga, which for your consideration are the following:‘Shogun’ ()‘Tai-Pan’ ()‘Gai-Jin’ /5(5).

Clavell's fifth novel in his bestselling Asian Saga--a high adventure story of heroism, violence, and love set in after the Shah left Iran--that began with the blockbusters King Rat, Tai-Pan, Shogun, and Noble House.

I've finished Tai Pan and Gai Jin, and I'm about to start King Rat. I think Tai Pan is really good, but never as great as Shogun, and the second half of Gai Jin is really good, but the first half kind of sags.

Clavell was a really interesting guy. He served in British army during WWII and was a POW of the Japanese in Singapore. In this clip, best selling author James Clavell talks about his novel 'Shōgun'.

The Tai Pan series is great (Tai Pan, Noble House, Whirlwind). King Rat is short but an awesome read (Clavell was a POW, I think this is inspired by his time spent in Changi).

Gai Jin for me was the weakest book of his, still not bad, just not as good as the others.
