Fun Listen

After playing three kingdoms the game, I tried to find out some background to the romance story, and was delighted to find this podcast. Love your work.

Superb work for the ages

When I started learning Chinese, I watched the 2010 CCTV series of 3 Kingdoms (all 96 episodes!). Two years later I have found this excellent podcast of the original novel. It is retold with an eye to modern tastes and rhetoric but with a keen sensibility to the ancient references in the text. I love the contextualising episodes that add to my understanding. This is a great work by the narrator whose work should help so many enjoy the scheming and lofty ambitions of these renowned ancient characters. It’s brilliant and soon becomes addictive listening. You’ve been warned!
