I love this story and have read the book many times, listened to a serialisation on radio and another one on TV. I was excited when I realised it was the story of monkey, but disappointed when I saw it was abridged an only 40 + minutes long. However that was long enough to listen to this narrator! She can obviously speak Mandarin but her powers of narration are Dire! She made a wonderfully amusing Chinese Classic sound like a second rate children's story read by an untalented older sister. It should be an unabridged version read by a professional and then it would be a pleasure to see others enjoy it as much as I have for years past.

What did you like best about Journey to the West? What did you like least?
The story, the characters, the adventure. Everything about Journey to the West is amazing, unfortunately this version is extremely condensed to the point of distraction.
Would you be willing to try another book from Wu Cheng'en and Christine Sun ? Why or why not?
What three words best describe Michelle Tate’s performance?
Stylized, childish (not in a mean way), quiet.
Do you think Journey to the West needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Any additional comments?
I wish the full book was available for audible. I own two different physical versions and they're amazing reads. Unfortunately, for me, this version was a bit too dumbed down.
