Video covering the historical and cultural impact of Water Margin

The creator also plans to make a series of videos covering the entire novel! I've never read the book and don't have the patience to read novels nowadays, so listening to a summary will be nice!

Oh, wow. I will check this out, thanks!

I love Chinese Classical literature. I have read Water Margin, but, unfortunately, it was all Reader's Digest'd out. Bad translation and Abridged to the point of being, well, pointless. It was also titled "All Men are Brothers." So yeah, it will be nice to get the real story.

Sorry for the double-post. But I remember back in University finding a two-volume, leather-bound translation of the Novel called Water Margin at a local bookstore. It was legit, but, some cheeky person there priced the set at $108 USD. . . So, I didn't have the money at the time to buy it lol.

Oh, man, thanks for that video, it was great!
