Journey to the West
Journey to the West is a mythological novel based on many centuries of popular tradition. This lively fantasy relates the amazing adventures of the priest Tang Sanzang as he travels west in search of Buddhist sutras with his three disciples, the irreverent and capable Monkey (Sun Wukong), greedy Pig (Zhu Bajie), and Friar Sand (Sha Wujing).
The story starts with the Sun’s rebellion against Heaven, during a time when he garnered a post in the celestial bureaucracy. Hubris proves to be his downfall when the Buddha manages to trap him under a mountain, sealing it with a talisman for five hundred years.
The journey takes the priest through all kinds of entertaining trials and tribulations, mainly at the hands of monsters and spirits who want to eat him.
