    Mobi Ï Bridge of Birds ò✓ Citybreakscheap Bridge of BirdsBadass ingenious drunken master style exploring Asian culture rocks the bambooIt´s uniue and rare to find such individual writings and the man just wrote 4 novels I would compare him with Pratchett and I don´t know if I´ve ever done it before and it´s mainly because of the underlying subtility as there are other humoristic authors with laughs dynamic and plotting but how this thing is written just blows my mindTaking just two stereotypical character tropes and creating such an intense densely packed clever funny intelligent and incomparable work a true masterpiece is amazing and the readers´ luck of the sheer coincidence that a late author s

    Mobi Ï Bridge of Birds ò✓ Citybreakscheap Bridge of BirdsThis book is insane Insanely fun that is The humour really drives the plot forward with a gag a minute just rolling through one on top of the other It was hilarious Set in Medieval China the children of the village of Ku Fu have been struck with a plague and pure hearted Number Ten Ox has been sent to find a wise man for help “We need a wise man who can tell us how a plague can learn to count” Enter Master Li who repeatedly during the story introduces himself as “My surname is Li and my personal name is Kao and there is a slight flaw in my character”We could go ahead and try to guess what exactly Master Li’s personal flaw is but really we can have a few good guesses as both Master Li and Number Ten Ox embark on a uest that sees them lyin

    Mobi Ï Bridge of Birds ò✓ Citybreakscheap Bridge of BirdsI feel bad I finished this book two days after we recorded the episode of Sword and Laser where we wrap it up first time I haven't finished a book for the audio show I blame Outlander for being too longAnyhow I wish I had made it to the end because coming away from the book now I feel much differently than I did at the 75% mark If felt like the silliness that was almost a distraction for me came together in the end in a really beautiful and meaningful way You all said I'd feel different and you were right I should listen to you often
