Enjoyable book

Lots of information and stories, it's more like a combination of fiction and nonfiction. Personally, I liked the fiction side of it, because the stories contained morals, and they were based on some deeply rooted beliefs from the ancient East of the world.

All of it

These are all of the books in the series. Wow. Talking about a great deal for your credit. Yes, I liked the narrator, and yes, I also liked the stories and the background information.

I recommend this one because it's the best deal for your buck. If you buy it at full price, it's less of a good deal of course. But still a nice book.

Nice

Very good book, if you ask me. The stories about the monkey who became king, the gods and goddesses, and the historical information about the Chinese culture during the time when they believed this stuff... all very good. I have no other words for it. Get it if this is up your alley.

dishonest

This book does not reveal its source. Who is John Feisel? What authority does he have for writing this. The text keeps talking about the present China but never references anything from World War I I or after. At one point the author says he was present at 1917 meeting in Peking. The text sounds like it was cribed from some anti-Chinese British or American imperialist missionary. Should not be sold as providing any serious knowledge of Chinese history or mythology. It itself is mythology.
