Please try again later. Won't be the last. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I was turned onto the author by another writer who knew my affection for Chinese cinema. If you're a fan of "crouching tiger, hidden dragon" and the like, you'll love this novel. Need more of the author's work in translation! One person found this helpful. But I just hate how the translator also Actually the translation is not bad. But I just hate how the translator also translate the name of the. Disappointed that there was no Book two for follow up. Could be the translator's style and choice of wording.
I decided to read this book because of how influential Jin Yong was on Chinese culture. Also because I thought the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was totally awesome, and I wanted to read a book that was like that. The translation was interesting. I'm pretty sure the translator has a better vocabulary than I do; I learned a LOT of new words, and that is not a bad thing. The translation was very clear, provided a dictionary is nearby. The book was sometimes dry, and not quite the flavor of kung fu awesomeness that I was looking for. Not exactly what I expected. Would recommend, but it didn't blow my socks off.
I really like this book. The story is exciting and addicting. I like the characters and the descriptions. Each character is likable, therefore it is hard to tell who the good or bad guys are. This writer is one of my favorite. I want to read more of his books. It is a good read and a very different kind of story. The story has the unique characteristic to many other Wuxia novels that there are stories within stories.
This improves the sense of wonder and mystery and the characters are very colorful. To a Western audience largely unfamiliar with wuxia novels, Jin Yong's work is probably best described as being similar to Ang Lee's film "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Bear in mind, however, that reading Jin Yong without understanding Confucianism, Buddhism or Taoism is like reading C. Lewis without understanding Christianity, so it might be worthwhile to Wikipedia the basic tenets of those beliefs before starting the novel.
