I didn't want it to end,
This review is from: Gai-Jin: The Third Novel of the Asian Saga: A Novel of Japan (Paperback)
I have just finished this book and wanted to see what other people had thought about it.
i was completely enthralled with all of the characters in this novel, the story lines, sub plots, everything about it compelling me to carry on reading it.
i have to admit that yes, shogun was a better book. i would certainly recommend reading Shogun and Tai-pan first, without this you would not fully understand the context of the book.
as to the reviewer that commented on the ending; i do believe that in the previous books all ties were not neatly tied up, i am now hungry to read the next in the saga, as clavell will, no doubt , provide us with information about the characters as he has done with characters from previous books in Gai-jin.
if you are looking for a book that is decently written and something to transport you away from eveyday life then look no further as this is all that you will need.

Clavell died the year after publishing Gai-jin - unfortunately. Are there any more novels in the saga?

R. While says:
I think Simone meant the next chronological novel in the saga, which would be Noble House. Or King Rat, if you class King Rat as part of it, but I don't.
