    Take a Shakespeare problem play, steep it in Chinese myth and add a dash of lethal mayhem and you might come close to approximating Eight Skilled Gentleman.

    Master Li and Number Ten Ox are attending the public execution of Sixth Degree Hosteler Tu as imperial witnesses, despite Master Li’s well known dislike of formality. When the execution is interrupted by a dying vampire ghoul carrying a half-gnawed head, Master Li realizes there’s something strangely aristocratic about the victim that requires further investigation. They discover the rest of the victim in the Forbidden City, and after consulting with the sainted Celestial Mas

    Eight Skilled Gentlemen MOBI Õ Eight Skilled Kindle eight pdf, skilled book, gentlemen pdf, Eight Skilled epub, Eight Skilled GentlemenEight Skilled Gentlemen EpubMy experience with the old man has taught me to keep my mouth shut when the wrinkles around his eyes squeeze up in tight concentric circles, so I waited until his mind relaxed along with the wrinkles, and then he shook himself and turned toward me. Ox, have you ever visited the Forbidden City?

    Eight Skilled Gentlemen is the final book of The Chronicles of Master Li and Number Ten Ox series. I feel it missed the mark somewhat.

    Like the previous two books, it has some beautiful imagery and fantastical magic sequences base

    Eight Skilled Gentlemen MOBI Õ Eight Skilled Kindle eight pdf, skilled book, gentlemen pdf, Eight Skilled epub, Eight Skilled GentlemenEight Skilled Gentlemen EpubMuch as I admire this book--hence the five-star rating--it somehow leaves me uncomfortable. Maybe it's that a lot of people die who don't deserve to; maybe it's how often Li Kao and Number Ten Ox are betrayed. Possibly it's just that Master Li and Ox are constantly just seconds too late to prev

    Eight Skilled Gentlemen MOBI Õ Eight Skilled Kindle eight pdf, skilled book, gentlemen pdf, Eight Skilled epub, Eight Skilled GentlemenEight Skilled Gentlemen EpubThe third novel of the series, and it is better than the second one. alas, the first novel is still the best. Don't get me wrong, all the novels are hilarious with exotic fictitious Ancient China setting. I just think, the ending of the first novel is still the best, it could made me highly emotional when read the last pages.

    OK, back to the third novel, Eight Skilled Gentleman.

    The beginning of the novel is actually the most ambitious of the series. The novel started on Capital City with vivid and hilarious narration of the city life. Then the story begins. I won't spoil anything more for the plot. The old recipe

    Eight Skilled Gentlemen MOBI Õ Eight Skilled Kindle eight pdf, skilled book, gentlemen pdf, Eight Skilled epub, Eight Skilled GentlemenEight Skilled Gentlemen EpubThe third and (sadly) final book in Barry Hughart's superb Bridge of Birds series, Eight Skilled Gentlemen follows the adventures of Master Li and Number Ten Ox as they work on solving a new mystery involving mythical demons, corrupt officials, and a master puppeteer. Who or what is murdering high-ranking mandarins and stealing their prized ancient artifacts? Li and Ox set out to discover the answer and we are taken along for the exciting and humor-filled ride.

    I say sadly because this rich world -- with it's beguiling characters and lush setti

    Eight Skilled Gentlemen MOBI Õ Eight Skilled Kindle eight pdf, skilled book, gentlemen pdf, Eight Skilled epub, Eight Skilled GentlemenEight Skilled Gentlemen EpubRather than going through the hassle of coming up with a good review for this book, I will just say this: I read Eight Skilled Gentlemen from cover to cover in under 24 hours. If that isn't a glowing enough endorsement for you, then I don't know what will be.

    The only reason that I gave this book four stars was that it was comparatively weaker than the first book in the trilogy,

    Eight Skilled Gentlemen MOBI Õ Eight Skilled Kindle eight pdf, skilled book, gentlemen pdf, Eight Skilled epub, Eight Skilled GentlemenEight Skilled Gentlemen EpubThe writing here is as charming as in the series' first entry, but the plot seemed a little more ramshackle and the whole just a bit less filled with, well, delight. Or maybe that's my own feelings on knowing that this is the last book Hughart would ever write seeping through. I enjoyed it, but I think if I feel a desire to delve into Number Ten Ox's adventures again, it will be with a reread of the original volume.

    Eight Skilled Gentlemen MOBI Õ Eight Skilled Kindle eight pdf, skilled book, gentlemen pdf, Eight Skilled epub, Eight Skilled GentlemenEight Skilled Gentlemen EpubI gave this four stars instead of three for several reasons. The first bring that it did have some very laugh out loud moments and the other, that it was the final book in the series. The star rating was more for the overall story arc.

    Eight Skilled Gentlemen MOBI Õ Eight Skilled Kindle eight pdf, skilled book, gentlemen pdf, Eight Skilled epub, Eight Skilled GentlemenEight Skilled Gentlemen EpubNot as good as the other two Master Li books, but considering how excellent the first two were, not as good still means it's a pretty fun read. We are once again plunged into the usual sort of mythological mystery quest, this time involving eight awful murderous beasts, and of course a great number of strange things happen. I think perhaps it's a little more gruesome and a little less whimsical than the other two, but still interesting and
