L'image montre le volume 1 de l'édition qui compte 4 volumes. Comme le descriptif ne donne pas d'autre précision, je suppose que le prix de vente est celui du premier volume seul. Il me semble qu'il faudrait le préciser. Cela dit, la traduction anglaise de Moss Roberts est remarquable. Elle se distingue de la traduction française par sa concision tout en étant aussi complète. Elle compte de nombreuses cartes qui aident le lecteur à situer les évènements et à comprendre certaines opérations militaires. Elle est accompagnée de nombreuses notes, d'une préface et d'une postface très intéressante, d'un index des principaux personnages et d'indications bibliographiques. L'édition abrégée en un seul volume est à mon avis d'un bien moindre intérêt.

Il s'agit bel et bien de l'édition complète en quatre volumes sous coffret.
Evidemment, c'est en anglais.
It really is the complete publication in a four-volume set. Enjoy!

Edtion sympathique, illustrée, au prix abordable. A lire avec les trois autres grands classiques de la littérature Chinoise, Outlaws of the Marsh, Journey to the West et A Dream of Red Mansions.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Timeless, classic story... great packaged set 29 août 2013
Par John Kim - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
First off... I won't waste your time in writing a review on the Three Kingdoms - I'm assuming that if you're reading this review, you're already aware of just how important/incredible/enjoyable this novel is. Truly a great entertaining story and yet so many lessons can be learned from it. It's no wonder why this is so widely taught in most Asian school systems.

I will, however, comment on this specific 4-volume package. This is arguably the best packaged-set available (at this time) for those that want to read the novel. It's not a "collector's edition" - there's no leather binding or any other high-end detail associated with it, but rather it is a simple and convenient set.

Unlike other versions being sold, it is somewhat smaller (I believe the dimensions are already displayed in the item details) - so it is very convenient to carry around (e.g. read on the subway, train, plane, etc). It's broken up into 4 volumes (page numbers are continuous - so volume II starts on p597) and the overall quality is actually pretty good. It's your typical paperback book.

Prior to purchasing, I read a number of reviews complaining of how "thin the paper was" and that it made it "completely unreadable." I did not find this to be an issue. Yes, the paper is probably thinner than one would expect... but nothing where it poses a threat of being damaged easily or anything of the sort. I also didn't find any issues with being able to see the lettering on the subsequent page (as its shadow is visible on the page you're reading). Yes, it's there and yes, it's noticeable (especially when there a poem - as the poems are indented); but again, I didn't find it to be an issue.

I debated back and forth on what "version" I wanted to purchase and I can honestly say that I'm quite pleased with this purchase. It's good quality, it's packaged nicely in a boxed 4-volume set (each volume has notes at the end - so no need to search for notes in another book; as is the case with other versions), it's the unabridged version (a MUST - please avoid any abridged version - as they often leave out so much), and it's affordable (complete set costs as much as one volume of other sets). It's also a Moss Roberts translation - something I would recommend. And it also uses the pinyin Chinese translations (more easily pronounceable - in my opinion). Nice introduction, good notes throughout, etc... so also a great option for those "studying" the novel.

Simply put, if you're looking for a collector's edition that you're going to hand down from generation to generation with leather binding, hand-drawn images, color, etc, etc... obviously this is not the set for you. But if you're looking for an affordable, compact, convenient, and accurate translation... then this is the one for you.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Videogames can lend themselves to Historical/Literary education. 7 juillet 2016

This is an awesome set. Complaints about how thin the paper is I find to be unreasonable. The paper is completely adequate - now the New American Bible - that's thin paper. The typos are slightly annoying but not too much of a big deal. The translation I find to be very readable. The material is dense and the footnotes are vital. The amount of information on even a single page is astounding and does not lend itself to a quick or passive read. Anyone who has read more difficult historical works such as Thucydides or Caesar shouldn't have any problem with the style.
Like most I became aware of this story through video games, specifically the Dynasty Warriors games. The games were a good primer for the actual text, as the reader already has mental images of the characters and battles - while the mental images of the characters conjured by the games may not be historical, or accurate, they lend themselves to remembering and differentiating individuals - which can be difficult for western readers because of the Chinese names which naturally seem foreign and hard to remember to westerners. I have always had an easier time with Japanese personal names over Chinese personal names, When you start throwing in X's and Z's in the translated names, my brain just goes "What? Strange and unfamiliar!" Therefore the primer videogame course helped me immensely.
I do wish the box that holds all 4 volumes was a little more robust, but for the price of the set, I cant really complain. Overall very pleased. Now I need a statue of Lord Guan to start offering incense to the "God of War."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Worth the effort 8 novembre 2015
Par ophewathun - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
It's a challenging read for those of us who didn't grow up with these characters and stories, but if you invest the time and make good use of the excellent Moss Roberts annotations, you can get completely absorbed in it. After working at it for a while, picking it up and putting it down and picking it up again, all of a sudden, I discovered that this monster of a novel turns out to be the source material for many of my favorite Chinese movies. In this particular set the books are small paperbacks with no margins to speak of, small print and annotations in even smaller print. I have to use a magnifying glass to read them. Eventually I bought the 2-volume larger format set put out by University of California Press. The print is larger, but still small -- but at least I can read it without a magnifying glass.Also the margins in the U Cal Press version are wide enough that I can make notes and make cross references for myself.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Ten thousand deaths would not deter me. 9 mars 2014
Par Jamil Bhatti - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
After falling in love with the movie “Red Cliff” I discovered that its’ narrative was based on this classic chinese novel. And since this story is so ingrained in the East so as to be part of the culture itself I was determined to ferret out a copy and see for myself.

This is a huge book, it spans generations and took me months to read. My edition was smartly broken up into four books, so I didn’t have to carry around a huge dictionary sized brick, I appreciate that. What I didn’t appreciate was at the end of book four is a list of important characters, their descriptions and even a list of titles with definitions. How is that offensive? Well I sure could have used that while reading books one through three! Being a westerner, I’m just not that comfortable with all of these chinese names and words, some of the characters only differ by ONE letter! Not to mention most of the main characters have more than one name, used interchangeably. There are also a ton of characters, many who will never appear again, for me, someone who is not good at names, this was a bit of a trial.

However, I’m glad I read this, I’m glad I own a copy, and I look forward to reading it again one day. The story itself is impressive with ample amounts of action, tactics, political intrigue, humor, and even romance. I can see why this story has endured for so long. This was not an easy, casual read for me, but it definitely deserves it’s rank as one of the four great Chinese classics.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Seller, but there's some really bad ghosting with the text. 20 avril 2016
Par David - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Initially when the books arrived, I received a misprint where volume 1 was just volume 3 with the volume 1 binding. Luckily the seller was right on top of it & sent me a new copy of volume 1 with no issues & no headaches. It arrived promptly & in one piece.

The only reason I'm giving the series 3 stars instead of 5 is due to the heavy ghosting with the text in the books. All four volumes seem to suffer from ghosted text & it can get really distracting. The text from one side of a page bleeds through very noticeably to the other side which gives me a little bit of a headache when I read for an extended period of time.
