I love this trilogy and am thrilled to see it available to download. You will be delighted too. Part mystery, part fantasy, part buddy story, full of love, humor and wit. This is great stuff.

A collection of the novels Bridge of Birds: A Novel of an Ancient China That Never Was, The Story of the Stone, and Eight Skilled Gentlemen It starts off very strong. Bridge of Birds is I think the best of the three books. It was then followed up by the weakest of the three. There were points in Story of Stone where I figured the reason you can only get an ebook version of Bridge in this collection is because there would be no other way to get people to purchase Stone and Gentlemen otherwise. Gentlemen does pull the series out of the nose dive, but doesn't quite reach the same level as Bridge.

Really amasing trilogy! You cannot stop reading it and then you feel sorry you've read all of them so fast so there's no more to read now! This has to be read at least once!

One of the most imaginative stories I've ever had the pleasure of reading. Mr. Li and number ten ox are the best characters live ever seen and the adventures they have in this book make me jealous on many levels. Each book is an epic journey on its own but all three stories will keep you up nights devouring them.

The book is a collection of 'it seems at times' stories of Master Li. It's an ongoing set of stories to entertain people over a long period of time. Some of it is hysterically funny and some just readable. It was worth the time and money I paid for the book.

The first book of the three contained in this cluster was a favorite of mine from many years ago. When I discovered the other 2, I was thrilled and thoroughly enjoyed reading the shenanigans of Li Kao and Number Ten Ox. These two are the Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson of Chinese mythology and their tales will leave you completely entertained.

I first read these books over a decase ago, and they haven't lost their charm in all that time. If you enjoy good, witty, adventurous tales with characters you can't help but care about, these are the books for you! It just doesn't get any better than this!!!

If you have never read these books, you are in for a treat. I also have a slight flaw in my character, as I find these books both funny and heartbreaking. It took me years to find all three books, so grab these now and enjoy!

This series of books is a combination of "Kolchak: The Night Stalker" and Charlie Chan all set in a magical, medieval China. The only bad thing here is that there are no more than the three books. GET THEM!!!

The over view of this book that begins "When I got out of Andover in the 1950s I suffered from fairly severe depression, " has NOTHING to do with Barry Hughart's wonderful fantasy trilogy of life in ancient China. Read it when it was first published and have remembered it for years. Very happy to see it has been republished (my copies of the books are - regretfully- long gone).
