    Default Testing The Popularity Of JY And GL!

    This forum is widely dedicated to two main wuxia writers - Jin Yong and Gu Long. I'm pretty curious about which, out of the two, would you prefer over the other? This is not anything big...just a poll to decide the popularity of these two writers in SPCNet forum.

    What? The two selections are Jin Yong and Gu Long. Jin Yong wrote books like Legend Of The Condor Heroes, Return Of The Condor Heroes, Demi Gods Semi Devils, State Of Divinity/XAJH. Gu Long wrote books like Chor Lau Heung, Little Dagger Lee, Luk Siu Fung, The Legendary Siblings.

    Damn the only wuxia novel i read is Jin Yong

    TO ANY NEW WUXIA READERS: if you never read gu long's novel, i suggest you to read them now, don't read Jin Yong's novels.

    Because after you read Jin Yong's novels, you won't be impressed by other wuxia novels

    I like them both. Each one offers something different, and I like to go to one when I grow tired of the other. The two provide a nice balance.

    if i made it public then a lot of people wouldn't vote...some people like ken when they don't want to go on one side. i need to give them "privacy".

    Ya, that's the disadvantage of public polls.

    You didn't provide a "both" option, so I didn't vote.

    while it is true that i prefer jy's character development (especially the women and the relationships), i slightly, marginally prefer gl because i like witty dialogues...and something more fast paced, especially after a long day at work...i might change my mind when i retire and find more time to read.
