KIRKUS REVIEW

A new translation of the 14th-century classic novel about the tumultuous collapse of the Han Dynasty (3rd century) and the rise of fierce military heroes in its rubble. This drastically abridged version still retains the labored pace of the original, making it authentic but dull. Loyalty and treachery in the midst of endless war, as seen through Chinese eyes.
