Favorite novel by Mr Jin Yong?

Postby sam_wong » 02 Dec 2011, 22:01

Many farang here in Taiwan read Chinese so I think they must read novels of Jin Yong.
What is your favorite novel of Mr Jin Yong?
For me it is 倚天屠龍記, which is the name of two magic swords in the book.
If you do not read Chinese, or only read Chinese a little bit, you can also watch the movies.
I think all his books are also movies of them.
His English name is Mr Louis Cha, and he was born in Hong Kong.
The movies are much better than movie of Jackie Chan, etc.

Aren't the "farang" in Thailand? Here in Taiwan I think we are simply "waiguoren".

I don't read know Jin Yong but will look for the books.

Jin Yong is good. I learned some Chinese by reading those novels. But you have to be into that genre, otherwise, they're really long.

It true Jin Yong novel very long.
One novel maybe 4 parts, one part maybe 300 page.
Sometimes 5 parts.
But Chinese novel always very long.
Like 紅樓夢 maybe 1500 pages.
But Jin Yong good story, lot of action, like Bruce Lee movie.
(Not stupid joking like Jackie Chan).
Not like 紅樓夢 (Red House Dream), hero 賈寶玉 same same ladyboy Thai.
No action just putting lipstick and crying like girl.
Also good for foreign friend read Jin Yong.
Maybe after read Jin Yong, can read 三國演義, very famous Chinese history book.

@John Yu -- that's impressive. I'm going to start reading 射鵰英雄傳. We'll see how it goes.

@Sam -- I tried to read 三國演義 once. I didn't get very far, though. These days I've been going through the 詩經 one by one. I find that enjoyable. I read 衡門 last night. It's interesting to think about the moral point in song (?) that was written during the Eastern Zhou dynasty is still true today -- that is, why use "expensive things" when "simple things" work just as well.

I think 三國演義 not hard.
Taiwan student study in junior high school.
But many many people in 三國.
So hard to remember who is who side, who kill who, who do what.
But too much good story, very exciting, everyone Thailand love this book.
