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.

Jan 16, Jehan Yang rated it it was amazing. A massive book, including Volume 2. 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.

You feel for many of them. And ancient Asian ideals about honor and respect I seem to know very well, as in Taiwan where I was born , many of these fundamental ideals did not change.

My parents certainly didn't change much to the American ideals when we moved. I think it might be an inside joke to non-Asians how some behaviors are, and I like that too.

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. Feb 13, Cock Johnson rated it liked it Shelves: Sprawling adventure novel with many characters whose stories intertwine throughout the novel.

Water margin download the ebook

Very impressive work considering it was written in the 13th century. Tends to get a bit repetitive. Nov 21, Daren rated it really liked it Shelves: This is the seventy chapter version of this book, as opposed to the chapter version, over which doubts exist as to whether the original author penned the final 30 chapters. This volume is the first thirty three chapters, in which we witness: Marshal Hong releasing the spirits, the introduction of the 'original seven' outlaws, and their robbing of the birthday gifts, and then the introduction and stories of several other heroes.

May 20, James rated it liked it Shelves: I read this a long time ago, it's a short version. I'm planning on reading the Shapiro version Volume 1 to start to see if a more modern translation helps.

This is the chapter version, which leaves out the entire second half of the novel. Many books in the west have portrayed Asia, and China in particular, as being a place where people blend in, go along to get along, or submit to authority out of Confucian filial piety.

This is not one of those books. This book is a riot of rebellious violence, subversive vulgarity, bouyant indulgence and righteous indignation. It is a celebration of a society of individuals and their complex relationships. The basic story follows a series of characters who for various reasons fall from grace with the powers that be, sometimes through no fault of their own, but often through their own rapacious appetites.

They each find themselves pushed by a mix of circumstance and necessity, to the marshes of Mount Liang, where they unite to form a notorious gang of bandits, waging outright war against a corrupt bureaucracy.
