Literary Favorites – Return of the Condor Heroes

February 11, 2015 § Leave a comment

The Return of the Condor Heroes is the second novel in Louis Cha’s Condor Trilogy. Cha, who goes by the pen name Jin Yong, is the Eastern equivalent of J.R.R Tolkien. Like Tolkien, he was able to create a unique world of fantasy, swordplay and fictionalized history. The biggest standout from Jin Yong’s novels is the large cast of memorable characters. Each character has his or her own back story and plays an important role in the plot. The Return of the Condor Heroes deals with themes such as forbidden love, patriotism, greed and chivalry.
