Description of the audiobook: 武侠(wǔ xiá) is a special literature genre in China, and this phrase means “Those who are powerful to help and protect powerless people with kung fu”. 侠 can mean this kind of nobel spirit or people who have it. The broadcaster in the audiobook is always speaking at a normal speed with a clear accent. The audiobook doesn’t have any background noise. Jin Yong has many works of fiction and this audiobook series is slowly going through them. If you’re into Chinese culture and wants to know more about Chinese history in a special way, then this online audiobook could be a good choice.

Summary: As a wuxia fan and my favourite writer is Jin Yong, I strongly recommend this audiobook to Chinese learners who are at the advanced level in Chinese. You will find another splendid world via listening to the audio book of wuxia novels or simply reading it.
