射鵰英雄傳 The Legend of the Condor Heroes by Jin Yong


Guo Jing is a little han chinese boy grown up next to the greatness of Genghis Khan. Even though his life starts in Mongolia, his dreams of revenging his fathers death in mainland China cease to remind itself. So once he turned eighteen he and his tutors left Mongolia to get back to China and Guo Jings adventures begins. The fun part doesn't start till he meets Huang Rong. Together they meet wushu legends and enemies that they in one or anothe
I love kungfu movies. One of the reasons I started studying Chinese history was because I liked the films so much and wanted to know all about the settings and the politics. I found an online translation of this and just couldn't get in to it. I think part of the problem may be have been reading it online in a strange format rather than reading it as a book, but it didn't do much for me. I found reading about the kungfu fights rather than watching them to be quite difficult as it is such a visua ...more

Could not put it down. Breathtaking story-telling!
This was one of the first full-length novels I ever read in a foreign language. It helped me learn how to let go of my English thoughts, think in Chinese, and follow my imagination into another world.

A must read.

The kind of book that you would flip open and never willing to put down.
Favorite one. Love Guo Jing and Huang Rong!

This, along with the other two parts of the Jin Yong's Trilogy, is one of my favorite books ever. It follows the story of the good-hearted, thick-headed, righteous Kwee Ceng (Guo Jing), along with his lover, the quick-witted and mischievous Oey Yong (Huang Rong). The story is set in the Southern Song period, when the Jin dynasty is pressing from the north, and later on the Mongols also threatens the

One of the most popular martial art fiction or wuxia in Indonesia, too! It was translated from the Cantonese Chinese "Sia Tiau Enghiong" into Indonesian "Memanah Burung Rajawali". Its sequels especially the story of Yo Ko "Pendekar Rajawali Sakti" established Jin Yong (or Chin Yung in Indonesia) as the master of wuxia or "cerita silat" in Indonesia.

enjoyed crowdsourced English translation immensely. Guo Jing is honest, upright and as thick as two short planks. Huang Rong is bright, lively and morally flexible, somewhat like a female supporting character in a PG Wodehouse short story

This novel is amazing, in my opinion. Especially the political tricks and the journey of Guo Jing and Huang Rong's love. It is very romantic and touching!
Online translation: Eagle Shooting Hero
Translation incomplete. :(
