a few questions about the novel.

Unread postby chunkyleechong » Wed Aug 16, 2006 4:00 am

I read the novel on threekingdoms.com, but have recently started to dislike reading it online. I have a few questions first.

1. Which is the best version of the novel to read?

2. What is the difference between the best version of the novel and the one on threekingdoms.com?

3. Is the threekingdoms.com version better than the best book version?

thanks.

I believe three kingdoms you find online is carbon copy of Pinyin, though I could be wrong.

Here’s an article I wrote on just this subject:

Maybe that’ll help to narrow down your questions, which, of course, you should feel free to ask away!

The notes section of the 4 volumes Moss Roberts open with entries for the epigraph, however that doesn't appear to be in the first volume, is it anywhere at all?

Do you have the books published by Foreign Language Press? If I recall correctly, that version is indeed missing the epigraph despite referring to it. Sorry. :cry:

Thanks Jia I have exactly that one=)
Are there other "light" editions without this mistake as far as you know?
