Considered one of China’s great classical novels, Wu Ch’êng-ên's Journey to the West was translated by Arthur Waley in abridged form as Monkey in 1942 and has delighted English readers ever since. It is a riveting adventure story about a priest's quest to obtain holy Buddhist scriptures for the Tang emperor; joining him on this rollicking journey: Sandy, Pigsy and the mischievous Monkey King, Sun Wukong, whose flying cloud and magic cudgel are never far from his infamous deeds. Waley's accessible rendition of Wu Ch’êng-ên's novel has become a classic in its own right: Gods, demons and disobedient monkey spirits all come alive in this entertaining work.

I'd heard of this story and that it was a wonderful piece of literature. Monkey is one of the most enjoyable characters I have ever come across. He is little too smart for his own good and thinks very highly if himself. And when he gets caught in a mess he is always quick to try and solve it. And the narrator is fantastic! I definitely recommend it .

Good story with good narration. I feel that some of the voices can get lost along the way or be a bit samey at times, but it's always enjoyable to listen to, regardless.
