This is like a post-modern take on the legend of the Monkey King, where a modern human gets involved with saving the book that contains the original story.

First of all, it is FUN!

There are lots of interesting characters, lots of action, heroic characters fighting the Good Fight... what more do you want?

Just keep in mind that this is NOT the original legend(s) - whatever those were about - and it doesn't even try to be, so don't criticize it for that.

This is good old-fashioned entertainment, with lots of imagination and heroics. Enjoy!
