Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a masterpiece of erotica, and an outstanding work of literature to boot. The prose style is refined and highly readable. The erotic episodes are described lyrically and without coarseness, which makes them all the more arousing. The rest of the book draws a fascinating picture of a Chinese society of a bygone age, in its refinement, cruelty, and corruption. There is great charm and truthfulness in the depiction of the characters who appear in the story, and there are many wise comments as the narrative unfolds. There is a moral ending, in that His Men comes to a bad end through unbridled excess.
As a bonus, there are three short but valuable essays on erotica, pornography, and censhorship
All in all, this is indispensable for those who enjoy erotica, and are broadminded enough to understand its essential role in a fully rounded life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Erotic but a Bit Hard to Read 20 Jan. 2014
By Amanda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This would be erotic but you would have to be a lover of eastern poetry and its tangled ( contorted?) wordplay. Perhaps I didn't read far enough! Not for me really - but if you were having a Chinese Concubine/Emperor or Empress/Imperial Guard Night it might be just the ticket!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun read 5 Feb. 2014
By Suzhoukid32 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a fun and sexy read. If you are at all interested in classical literature and the Orient, I would suggest this book. This book wont get you in the mood or anything, (I dont know, maybe it will! haha), but I liked all the metaphors and the poetry. It reminds me that sex is nothing new and that people have been doing like they do on the discovery channel since day one.

If you are at all interested in Classical Latin poetry, you might also find this amusing.

I would recommend it and I refer to it from time to time.
4.0 out of 5 stars good abridgment 13 Mar. 2015
By Larry Lynch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the secret 5th of the 4 classics in the Rich Chinese literary canon (with San Guo, Story of the Stone, Monkey King, and Outlaws of the Marsh). This abridgment is just the right length in my opinion (the original is really long and expensive to buy all the volumes).

Strangely, this translation originally had the juicy bits rendered in Latin, but they're all here in good old plain if flowery and extremely creative English. I never have seen the love act described in so many different ways, to put it mildly. It may have been passed off as a cautionary tale (a la Lust, Caution), but the author obviously had a delicious time telling it.

The typography is another story, as it is littered with typos, but I had no trouble reading it. At first the story seemed a bit disjointed and abrupt, especially since the whole original lead-in has been lopped off, but once I got into I really liked it. Highly recommended for the unprudish.
