Written in the 1400s, China, these tales were old even then. They tell about Monkey, born of rock, and irrepressible. After being imprisoned by Buddha for his many high-spirited hi-jinks in Heaven, he is granted freedom on the condition he help a monk, Tripitaka, seek scriptures in India. These are the stories of their adventures.

So much fun to read! Some of the chapters were odd, but others were quite gripping. All of them had a fun sense of humor, especially the chapters where the journey begins and Tripitaka finds Monkey. One chapter proves that potty humor survives through the ages. Arthur Waley must have been a fine translator, because this book is delightful. ( )

Monkey! I love this adaptation and translation. Most chapters end with a variation on "and if you want to know what happened next, well, you'll have to read the next chapter." And if you want to know the story that inspired [book: Tripmaster Monkey: His Fake Book], [book: The Laughing Sutra], Saiyuki, One Piece, Dragonball, and innumerable other adaptations both Eastern and Western, well, you'll have to read this book.

journey of a monkey that is steeped in metaphor; so damn readable ( )

Monkey is the ultimate trickster character; he is hilarious and always finding or creating trouble. Challenging read, but worth it. Very interesting story for upper level high school students. Great for students to see different myths from other countries and make comparisons to some other myths that they have read. ( )

The story of how Monkey became a king, learned great power, earned the title of Great Sage - Equal of Heaven, caused such mischief and mayhem that he was entombed beneath a mountain for 500 years before being released to accompany and protect Tripitaka on a pilgrimage to India to bring back scriptures to lead the Chinese people on the path to true enlightenment. Can Monkey, with the help of another two rascals that are recruited along the way and a dragon who is turned into a horse, shield the young priest from the many dangers and trials that he will face on their journey to the west?

The original tale is a sprawling epic of immense length and the translator's, Arthur Waley, introduction tells how this abridged version "omits many episodes, but translating those that are retained almost in full, leaving out, however, most of the incidental passages in verse, which go very badly into English" and it works very well. The inclusion of more of these incidents probably would have made the tale too repetitive as many of them are quite formulaic and follow the same pattern. It is also quite episodic in nature and so could be read in small doses quite easily though some chapters end with a cliffhanger which will be resolved in the next. This is an amusing, somewhat satirical adventure story that pokes fun at the bureaucratic establishment. While some understanding of Chinese culture and allegory would add to the understanding of what is contained in this book it's not at all requisite to enjoying what is on offer. ( )

There was a rock that since the creation of the world had been worked upon by the pure essences of Heaven and the fine savours of Earth, the vigour of sunshine and the grace of moonlight, till at last it became magically pregnant and one day split open, giving birth to a stone egg, about as big as a playing ball.
