"Roberts has managed to achieve a rare feat in producing a translation that is not only a fine example of meticulous scholarly translation, but that is at the same time also a highly entertaining novel which should be a delight to readers with or without any prior knowledge of Chinese literature."
Three Kingdoms, A Historical Novel: Complete and Unabridged / Edition 1 available in Paperback
"A material epic with an astonishing fidelity to history, which has been translated into lively English by Moss Roberts. . . . The subject matter of Three Kingdoms has long held an extraordinary grip on the Chinese imagination. . . . No less an authority than Mao Zedong asserted that when he set out on the campaigns that would ultimately bring him to power, Three Kingdoms was the book he valued most."
"[Roberts] is the perfect author to present a balanced combination of the most famous, exciting, and beautiful scenes, along with those parts that are necessary for following the plot. . . . [He] has succeeded . . . in creating an absorbing version of the book that is great fun to read."
