An aspect that puzzled me a little, however again, this is a note to readers who may not be expert on Chinese history! Even characters who are portrayed as brave, chivalrous, just, merciful, perfectly virtuous in every respect And as for enemies themselves, they regularly end up tortured, and even butchered and served at the heroes' table!
Not that I was offended or anything this is not a contemporary book, remember!
Another point I had trouble with was the fact that, save for a couple of women who join the band, every single female character is portrayed as greedy, deceitful, and causes the misery of the men around her until she gets her comeuppance. Again, I have no problem with this, but be warned that in reading this book, you may have to shrug off a few really unsavoury details if you want to keep feeling entertained.
Personally, it made me wish I knew more about Chinese history, and in particular, the evolution of Chinese values over time. I think I'll do my best to catch up when I get time! A book I'd recommend reading, even to people who aren't particularly fond of mediaeval literature; just don't feel that you have to read it in one go the plot is simple enough to follow, even if you take a break to read something else in the middle.
Although it's years old, I found the book relatable. I guess a lot of human nature doesn't change.
I also liked the idea that my ancestors whom I will probably never know have read this book and enjoyed it like I did. There's a lot of violence it's an old book about revolution against corruptness. Some of the violence is gratuitous, which happens to be around my taste.
There are an enormous number of characters, probably around , but they are all ch A massive book, including Volume 2. There are an enormous number of characters, probably around , but they are all characterized well.

I actually haven't read this book in about two years, so I can't remember many details, but it is definitely one of the best books I have ever read, according to my taste.
