Again, only the children's version. A couple of original chapters were in my high school Chinese textbook (The Empty City and Strawmen Borrowing the Arrows).
The bias (as well as the culture surrounding the characters) made it very difficult for me to read the content after the Red Wall. Because back then, to me the story always seemed to be about the Three Brothers and Zhuge Liang. I currently still don't quite know why Shu and Wu split up!
However, this novel is often discussed and real history is often brought out to compare the contents so at least my view on the book has changed to a bigger picture.
yes, even though i haven't read it, some of the stories are very well known generally, so i do know that you have to take this more as fiction than historical fact. it's not even accurate enough to be historical fiction--more closer to fantasy/mythology. it's always good to know the historical context of stories, if there IS one (which is why some really don't like GL's stories, among other things).

Admin: hi guys! I'm adding a new section on the forum. Since so many of good ancient costume series appear in the market, like Nirvana in Fire, etc. A bit touch of wuxia, but not really wuxia. Some are historical fictions with a touch of wuxia,
