    Romance of the Three Kingdoms

    Hmmm... An Interesting topic which came acrossed my mind a few minutes ago. Has anyone here read it? I believe it's a great novel, and Luo Guanzhong really outdid himself with this series. A great book, filled with twists and turns, and its truely an awesome book, not only in text, but the whole moral of the novel.

    This novel is unlike any other I have ever read, its a novel of love, war, lies, deciet, strategy, force, honor and virtue. It opens up introducing Liu Bei, styled Xuande, meeting Guan Yu and Zhang Fei. They swear to end the chaos by swearing an oath of brotherhood in the Cherry Blossom Garden behind Zhang Fei's house.

    I'm not going to say anymore, because I don't want to ruin the story for you.

    EDIT:

    Maybe this will clear it up...

    Sounds like my type of book. Its kind of expensive even used. Amazon prices a used paperback at $17.00, It must be good.

    Re: Romance of the Three Kingdoms

    Yeah, I bought Romance of the Three Kingdoms a couple months back. I haven't finished it yet, due to university, but it's been quite good so far. At times it is a bit hard to follow, as Guanzhong will bring up certain names if only for one paragraph, and since many of the names have the same beginning (I forget what the proper term for it is, but the last name is first in Chinese), so I'll sometimes lose track of who's doing what. But other than that, it's pretty good.

    Many Thanks To SasuraiHell For The Sig!
