Sandy and the horse One annoying thing about this story is the fact that all the demons are really there just for the sake of being enemies and putting tribulations in Tripitaka's way.
These deus ex machina interventions by gods and deities remove tension from the story since you never really fear for the characters too much.
But if you know the story I'm sure you were prepared for that. This translation, with its very comprehensive introduction though the academic jargon is at times unforgivably tortuous is a decent one to pick up.
Nov 19, Melanie rated it it was ok. This has to be one of the most boring books I have ever read. I mean, the beginning of the book, back when Sun Wukong was free to do whatever he pleased was pretty acceptable.
But in the moment he is given the task of babysitting Sanzang is where the book starts to get irritating. I understand that the book is supposed to be epic and full of metaphors, but imagine the case when someone asks Wukong something and instead of reading the sentence "and Wukong explained everything that happened to him This has to be one of the most boring books I have ever read.
I understand that the book is supposed to be epic and full of metaphors, but imagine the case when someone asks Wukong something and instead of reading the sentence "and Wukong explained everything that happened to him", he actually tells everything he had been through.
I feel awfully frustrated with the speed of the story. I feel as if I'm stuck in a boring journey. I am going to read the rest of the books, though.
It's a matter of honor. Feb 02, Peter rated it really liked it. I really enjoy, as most do, Part One, the origin of Sun Wukong and his hell-raising days before he is finally subdued by Buddha.
After that, I am often annoyed, as some are, by how weepy yet obstinate Xuanzang is especially because he is supposed to be a highly cultivated monk , how underdeveloped the characters Sha Wujing and Yulong Santaiz are, how repetitive the 81 ordeals can be, and the author's repeated use of deus ex machina.
Nevertheless, it is a fascinating and often hilarious adventur I really enjoy, as most do, Part One, the origin of Sun Wukong and his hell-raising days before he is finally subdued by Buddha.
Nevertheless, it is a fascinating and often hilarious adventure story of enlightenment. I only wish I could read the Chinese original -- I'm certain the poems would be more fluid and beautiful and the text would be full of wordplay.
I would also be interested in reading an annotated version. Sep 19, Sarah rated it really liked it Shelves: chinese-lit , the-four-great-classical-novels.
Well, this is just one of four parts to this rather enormous Chinese work that I've been meaning to read for a long time now.
The Journey to the West , at least this portion, is most notably about the origins of Sun Wukong, the mischievous monkey king of folklore.
For the most part, even just this installation of the epic feels like it is split into two distinct subcategories, one being far supreme to the other.
The first thing I noticed was a return to that beautiful, distinct style of prose tha Well, this is just one of four parts to this rather enormous Chinese work that I've been meaning to read for a long time now.
The first thing I noticed was a return to that beautiful, distinct style of prose that marks most East Asian literature.
However, as this is the first Chinese novel I've read, I notice subtle differences from Japanese counterparts. Scattered selections of descriptive verse embellish the entire work and make it that much more of a joy to read, even when there is not much happening.
These passages usually pick out a small piece of action or focus closer on a description of color, texture, or general appearance.
As a result, it seems as if Cheng'en is really trying to paint a clear visual picture in the reader's mind- he succeeds on all levels.
However, I must digress and go back to a point I briefly brought up- the first half of Journey is vastly superior to the second half. For the most part, this is because Sun Wukong is such a badass character with seemingly unlimited power and an insatiable taste for fisticuffs.
He is portrayed as a reckless yet nearly unbeatable being, and he definitely goes to great lengths to prove this to anyone and everyone. So it's really all a good romp with Wukong for a while, until he actually gets himself into trouble and has to be assigned someone to babysit him, which is where things really slow down.
Enter Xuanxang, the monk appointed to do the job and to spread a Buddhist message back East. Things definitely remain well-written, but I think that for the most part Wukong does it for me, and his diminished role actually sort of diminishes my enjoyment, but only marginally.
Overall this is a formidable work and I'm not sure if I'm going to dive straight into the next volume, but it looks like my university's library has got them all and they aren't exactly in high demand.
So, sometime I'll come back to Journey but for now I am left with a good impression and a pleasurable read. Jul 26, Greg Kerestan added it.
I first started reading this book many years ago but didn't pick it up seriously until last week.
I'm surprised at how many of the incidents I recognize in translated form from various comic books, movies and video games imported originally from Japan.
For being a mostly unknown story in America, this novel half folklore and half fiction casts a wide shadow across Asia with its mix of Chinese, Japanese and Indian folk elements.

See the gallery. Title: Journey to the West Tang Sanzang, an aspiring Buddhist hero tries to protect a village from three demons. He develops complex feelings for Miss Duan, the demon hunter who repeatedly helps him, and finally quests to meet the legendary Monkey King.
An absolute breakthrough! From the refreshingly inventive script "X-MEN Origins" of Pigsy, Sandy etc. Stephen Chow has been honing his skill as a highly specialized film-maker par excellence, notably with Shaolin Soccer, Kung Fu Hustle, CJ7 and now Journey to the West - Conquering the Demons; injecting photo-realistic CGIs, comic innovations and content with a moral thread.
The bad thing about this movie is - it leaves you hungry for even more, despite the running time being nearly 2 hours min in its cinematic version.
Hopefully, Stephen Chow decides to produce a sequel, which would almost certainly need to feature a celestial dragon, perhaps like the magnificent one from Sam Neill's The Dragon Pearl.

Being extremely shocked, the villagers ran away, but Zhu Bajie wanted to keep his bride, so he told the bride's father that if after one month the family still doesn't agree to let him keep the bride, he would take her by force.
He also locked the bride up in a separate building. At this point, Tang Sanzang and Sun Wukong arrived at the Gao Family Village and helped defeat him.
Renamed Zhu Bajie by Tang Sanzang, he consequently joined the pilgrimage to the West. His weapon of choice is the jiuchidingpa " nine-tooth iron rake ".
He is also capable of 36 transformations as compared to Sun Wukong's 72 , and can travel on clouds, but not as fast as Sun.
However, Zhu is noted for his fighting skills in the water, which he used to combat Sha Wujing, who later joined them on the journey. He is the second strongest member of the team.
Being spiritually the lowest of the group due to his lust for women, extreme laziness and greediness, he remained on Earth and was granted the title "Cleaner of the Altars," with the duty pf cleaning every altar at every Buddhist temple for eternity, presumably by eating excess offerings.
He was exiled to the mortal world and made to look like a monster because he accidentally smashed a crystal goblet belonging to the Queen Mother of the West during a Peach Banquet.
The now-hideous immortal took up residence in the Flowing Sands River, terrorising surrounding villages and travellers trying to cross the river.
However, he was subdued by Sun Wukong and Zhu Bajie when Tang Sanzang's party came across him. They consequently took him in, as part of the pilgrimage to the West.
Wujing's weapon is a magic wooden staff wrapped in pearly threads. He also knows 18 transformation methods and is highly effective in water combat.
Wujing is known to be the most obedient, logical, and polite of the three disciples, and always takes care of his master, seldom engaging in the bickering of his fellow disciples.
He has no major faults nor any extraordinary characteristics. Perhaps this is why he is sometimes seen as a minor character.
He does however serve as the peacekeeper of the group mediating between Wukong and Bajie and even Tang Sanzang and the others. He is also the person whom Tang Sanzang consults when faced with difficult decisions.
Wujing eventually becomes an arhat at the end of the journey, giving him a higher level of exaltation than Zhu Bajie, who is relegated to cleaning altars, but lower spiritually than Sun Wukong and Tang Sanzang, who are granted Buddhahood.
