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.

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.

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.

Marvellous

This is a wonderful book bundle with 3 of them. Yes, it's obvious, but I just wanted to say something nice about it. More people should do that, instead of tearing everything down. I mean, this has historical details in the beginning, and the context and culture that provided the way for believing in these monkeys and creatures and gods. Very good.

Yes!

This is exactly what I was looking for. The Chinese had some weird things they believed in. That's for sure.
