    1. A strong four, often in five territory along the way It has so much going for it.I like big, ambitious books my favourite historicals seem to be 600 pages lately, and deal in worlds Which is the case here a large cast and several major points of view give the Ming experience I had a concern going in that there d be too much of palace life and concubines for me, but the book is far diverse than that Its greatest strength, for me, without question, is its inclusion of the different ethnicities of [...]


    2. Featuring all of the silk, scheming, and scandals a reader expects from the Chinese court, The Ming Storytellers is the sweeping love story of the unexpected pairing of Admiral Zheng He a high ranking eunuch with Min Li a royal concubine Beautifully written and masterfully crafted, the multidimensional characters tug at our emotions, evoking visceral reactions ranging from admiration to pity to disgust I found myself whisked away to such exotic locations as the northern and southern palaces at N [...]


    3. Filled with fascinating characters, The Ming Storytellers is a novel of 15th century China The author weaves together the paths and destinies of several compelling characters Historical detail is carefully woven into the details seamlessly The story takes place inside the Forbidden City, a place of intrigue and danger The paths of the emperor s Admiral Zheng He cross with those of the emperor s favourite concubine, Ming Li causing conflict throughout And my favourite character is the poor eunuch [...]


    4. For someone with no background in Ming Dynasty China who does not normally read historical novels I found this novel filled with well executed twists While this is not a crime novel, it possesses strong detective elements I would recommend it to those who enjoy historical crime and historical mystery The story is set in the 15th century, all over the world from China, India, Zanzibar and on the Ming fleet The landscape of this novel is dizzying, overwhelming and on the whole, well researched The [...]



    5. I was enthralled by this rich tale of the Far East where fortunes were made and lives were lost.The Ming storytellers opens a world of the imagination and history beyond what we could imagine The story unfolds in five parts following strong characters and a pace that builds up as the tale is told through the mouth of an old woman storyteller.Beautifully written and in great and impressive details, you re projected into a descriptive and vanished world of intrigues, jealousy and unrequited love I [...]


    6. I would have loved to have given this a much higher rating but it needed another round of editing There were too many grammatical errors and at times stilted writing for me that prevents me from giving it a higher rating.The story itself is incredibly well thought out and well written that if the grammatical errors and clunky parts had been cleaned up, I would have gladly given it at least 4 stars I loved the characters especially Zhang He and thought the author s style was a gentle and haunting [...]


    7. After a slow beginning, this worldly, beautiful, tragic, and thoroughly enjoyable story ends with a strong five.It s a luscious tapestry of facts and detail that seamlessly emerge into a fascinating and complex journey into the Ming Dynasty It s a clever story that opened my mind to different perspectives and cultures Loved it.


    8. Great readThis is a good read, there is never a dull moment This story has great characters that you either love, hate or abhor I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story about emporer s in the orient world.




    9. Very dryThe was not a lot to get involved in It seemed typical Nothing new Why authors use language that is not spoken is annoying She padded of to the room Can t it just say she went to Or she slowly walked toToo many unused words in todays conversations They re good words but apparently only for books Feels like the thesaurus was used a lot It s fun looking them up easily in the ebookbut why


    10. Long, complex, and oddly structured historical novel set in 15th century China featuring a large cast of characters, including the historical Admiral Zheng He The story repeatedly turns back on itself, centering primarily on Admiral Zheng, a concubine named Min Li, two eunuchs named Zhijian and Ji Fang, and a parade of Ming emperors Although the historical details were impressive, I found the story only intermittently interesting.


    11. GoodIt was a good story, but while it used your imagination, it felt unfinished, even with using the method required to read it Taking that into play, there was something missing It was a very good story, thank you to the author for the work and detail, and I hope this doesn t come across disrespectful.


    12. I received this book for free through a giveaway.The Ming Storytellers was intimidating to pick up was so large and heavy Though the story was long, it was well written and held my interest I enjoyed how it all wove together in the end.
