Summary

Have you ever heard about the old mother of waters? How about Miao Shan? Or the medicine god?The Chinese had so many gods that it's probably a huge task to remember or memorize them all. For almost everything, there was either a god or a goddess.

But a simple list of all the gods wouldn’t suffice to satisfy your appetite for the mystery of religious history in this massive country. So, to help you enjoy this audiobook, the intricate stories of betrayal, supernatural powers, love, and hatred are described in detail in this guide. 

You will learn about the fire and water gods the Chinese believed in, the ruler of the heavens they perceived, and the complicated patterns some of these heroes or villains supposedly created in their lives.

Go ahead and start listening.

Interesting indeed

This is really nice, because it's one of those rare books about mythology you won't see a lot in other areas. Anyway, I just thought, since I already looked into Greek mythology, that this would be good to add to my library.

Nothing wrong with this

This is a good book about Chinese mythology. I actually don't have much to say about it. The stories were interesting. I liked the narrator. There. That's about it. Get it if you're into that kind of thing.

Comprehended it all

This is a very good book. I managed to comprehend every thing clearly, not just since the narrator spoke words nicely, but also since the info in it contained new things to be learned.

Yes!

This is a great book! This is something I have been looking forward to. I love the Chinese gods and goddesses.
