Recommended for: Chinese people.
Read in July, 2009

On hold since Summer 2006, I'm done with 3 1/2 volumes of this.

I hope to finish before I die.

9/14/07:

Seriously, I should finish this.

10/4/07:

No kidding.

10/29/07:

Give it some time.

12/9/07:

Wait for it...

2/6/08:

Uh...

4/6/08:

I've read another chapter!

5/22/08:

Guys, really.

6/17/08:

I've read another bit.

7/10/08:

This is getting ridiculous

9/30/08:

What the hell.

4/25/09:

I don't think this is ever going to be finished.

7/26/09:

Except, by some miracle, I HAVE FINALLY FINISHED.

7/27/09:

I've downgraded it from a 5 to a 4, not because of any flaw in the plot (which I hold to be one of the best in general), but because the writing simply lacks that bit of finesse in most Western literature. This is to be expected though, because of rough translations. I'm sure if I could read Chinese and then read the original in Chinese, I would make it a 5.
