Summary

In this book in the series, the most important legends from China will come to light. You will learn about the famous monkey who became a god through his clever trickery and struggles, for instance. This is an amazing story that has inspired millions to depict the protagonist in paintings, sculptures, and other art works.

Another interesting story that has been shown in Asian movies in great detail is the battle of all the Chinese gods. The eight immortals that are mentioned in Chinese mythology will be described, and so many other things that will keep you listening.

So, buy this audiobook and enjoy!

Chinese myths

The Chinese had a lot of strange gods and goddesses, but symbolically, there were a lot of them that made sense the way they thought. And I'm sure some of these legends have been passed on through many generations, and enjoyed by many listeners. I add myself to those listeners today. I enjoyed it.

Best of the best

This is a really good book about Chinese mythology. You'll hear some things in here that you never would have suspected. Sorry this is not a very long review. I tried. I'm not a really good reviewer.

Great stuff

This is great stuff. I liked the Chinese myths. Hoping to see more. I think this is not the only book in the series.

Really good

This is truly a good book. The best parts of this book (I forgot which chapters) indicated the most to me. When I heard these things, I immediately understood I had actually made the right option. This book spoke with me.
