Drawing from the legends of ancient China, this massive fantasy is filled to overflowing with Kung Fu fighters, dragons, an evil emperor, a prophecy of redemption, a tattooed monk, and a trickster monkey. This vast story is firmly anchored by the robust narration of Rosalyn Landor. Her slightly formal British tone complements the ceremonial restrictions of the imperial court while her use of broad accents lends credence to the outlaws and other commoners. Her steady reading guides listeners through the enormous panoply of gods and demons, enabling them to understand and appreciate the machinations behind the story. This challenging audiobook is worth the effort. S.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
