According to the blurb Wailing Ghosts collects some of the most wonderful stories in Chinese literature. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t like them. With some stories I was wondering if I was missing the clue, because the end was rather abrupt and not funny. At other times I was wondering if time might have influenced the appreciation of the stories. It could also just have been me.
They were very short but the writing wasn’t particularly good. Still it was an easy read, but I wouldn’t quickly pick up something else by this author.
