Clavell potrafi zachęcić by czytelnik sam, niezależnie od lektury zaczął zagłębiać się w historyczny epizod Wojen Opiumowych i powstania HongKongu. Świetnie jest również ukazany kontrast kulturowy, pełen socjologicznych idiomów, trudności dogłębnego przeniknięcia mentalności Azjatów.
What a fantastic book! I had read Shogun a couple of years ago and that book became one of my all time favorites. I don't know why it took me so long to try another book by Clavell, but I am glad I did. Tai-Pan is not quite as good as Shogun, but it was still an exciting read with a little bit of...
Not as good as Shogun but still well written and worthwhile. Also set in Japan with rich history, characters and plotting.
Like Shogun, a very enjoyable fictional account of Europeans in the Far East at a decisive time in history. I think I prefered Shogun overall, but I did very much enjoy this one too.
Great, great book. Love Clavell's writing. Will read again in the future. So very good!
