    eBook kdglasscouk ç 西遊記 Xī Yóu Jì eBook ä 西遊記 Xī 西遊記 ebok, yóu epub, 西遊記 Xī free, 西遊記 Xī Yóu Jì PDFWell this is just one of four parts to this rather enormous Chinese work that I've been meaning to read for a long time now The Journey to the West at least this portion is most notably about the origins of Sun Wukong the mischievous monkey king of folklore For the most part even just this installation of the epic feels like it is split into two distinct subcategories one being far supreme to the other The first thing I noticed was a return to that beautiful distinct style of prose that marks most East Asian literature However as this is the first Chinese novel I've read I notice subtle differences from Japanese counterparts Scattered selections of descriptive verse embellish the entire work and make it that much of a joy to read even when there is not much happening These passages usually pick out a small piece of action or focus closer on a description of color texture or general appearance As a result

    eBook kdglasscouk ç 西遊記 Xī Yóu Jì eBook ä 西遊記 Xī 西遊記 ebok, yóu epub, 西遊記 Xī free, 西遊記 Xī Yóu Jì PDFThis first volume is pretty interesting and less formulaic than the subseuent volumes which are the pilgrims' episodic adventures rinsed and repeated Here we start with Monkey's enlightenment how he causes chaos in Heaven and is punished; the Tang Emperor makes a really trivial mistake that almost costs him his life and necessitates the commission of a pilgrimage to India to show his piety; Guanyin doing the legwork of gathering all the involved parties for Tripitaka's pilgrimageTripitaka Monkey and Pigsy's backstories are pretty vivid; it is kind of hilarious that Monkey is a total ruffian much like the thugs in 水浒传 Outlaws of the Marsh Pigsy is lazy lecherous and sinful and Tripitaka is naggy and cowardly Sandy and the horse don't really need to be mentionedOne annoying thing about this story is
