I don't read Chinese books. It must be something from childhood and I can't explain why. I read mostly books on astrology and geometry in school library, I didn't like going to public library at all after school.
I studied Chinese and History, which were made extremely boring by teachers, in school to get a pass. I find reading anything Chinese longer than a page difficult. This one changed me, it makes history reading interesting and there are a lot more than history in this series.
