Book Description

1 April 2014
Updated with a new foreword by Moss Roberts for this fifteenth anniversary edition, Three Kingdoms tells the story of the fateful last reign of the Han dynasty (206 B.C.--A.D. 220), when the Chinese empire was divided into three warring kingdoms. Writing some twelve hundred years later, the Ming author Luo Guanzhong drew on histories, dramas, and poems portraying the crisis to fashion a sophisticated, compelling narrative that has become the Chinese national epic. This abridged edition captures the novel's intimate and unsparing view of how power is wielded, how diplomacy is conducted, and how wars are planned and fought. As important for Chinese culture as the Homeric epics have been for the West, this Ming dynasty masterpiece continues to be widely influential in China, Korea, Japan, and Vietnam and remains a great work of world literature.

1.0 out of 5 stars Imagine . . . 11 Mar 2014

Format:Kindle Edition
Imagine my surprise and joy to see that there was finally a Kindle Moss Roberts "Three Kingdoms" edition. Imagine my disappointment when it showed up and I finally realized that this was the abridged version.

I really can't rate this because it may be a wonderful abridged version, but Amazon wants at least one star. If I had paid attention when I snapped this up, I would have known what I was getting and no harm, no foul.

It would be really nice to be able to get the whole story in Kindle version instead of having to buy a four volume set.
