Not bad at all, for entertainment
26 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

Obviously, many parts in the original novel was omitted simply because there would never been enough resources to translate every single detail in the original work into actions, even though the condensed version is already one of the longest TV series in China. What is left in the TV series is still enough for you to sit back and enjoy
