  7. More and , I ask myself whatever made people choose this book series as one of the Four Great Classics of the Chinese Literature I have yet to find a book as annoying as this one and the interesting part is that I probably said that to every single Journey to the West book I read until now No wonder it took me so long to finish reading this one One would think that, for a book to be this long it s almost the same as reading War and Peace TWICE , the story must be intriguing, or less like the Ro [...]
