The book I am going to tell you about is Sanguoyanyi, Romance of the Three Kingdoms. It is a historical novel attributed to Luo Guanzhong. The story is set in the turbulent years towards the end of the Han dynasty and the Three Kingdoms period in Chinese history, and is closed with the reunification of the land.
The story – part historical, part legend, and part mythical – romanticizes and dramatizes the lives of lords and their retainers, who tried to replace the dwindling Han dynasty or restore it. While the novel follows hundreds of characters, the focus is mainly on the three power blocs that emerged from the remnants of the Han dynasty. It deals with the plots, personal and military battles, intrigues and struggles of these states to achieve dominance.
I read this book on the train from my university in XXX to my home in XXX. It was a long journey. I needed something besides the cellphone to kill time. While I was browsing the shelves of a bookshop at the train station this article is from Laokaoya website, I found this book. Although it is a quite well-known novel in China, I had never read it. So I thought this would be a great opportunity to make up. I bought it and took it on the train.
The most exciting thing about this book is the unexpected but logical experience of various characters. They may die right before they are going to achieve success and eventually encounter defeat on the battlefield after numerous victories. The despicable ones claim the throne, while the honourable heroes can accidentally lose their lives.
