Wow! Volume 1 of 2 (I believe) and I was initially very confused about the pronounciations and spelling of the names of the characters before I realised I was thinking in a very 'Eurocentric' way, without taking into account the fact that the translations within are probably more accurate than those in the console games that have developed from these accounts.
However, having worked my way through my confusion, this is an epic historical piece, rightly broken down as thew weight of the entirety would be too much to lift! The story of the fall of a Dynasty and the turmoil that followed very much engages, although I suppose you have to have a hiostorical turn of mind to get into it. Not just a list of times, people and events but a full narrative that tells of both the personal and political struggles that surfaced during the Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
