    @Dragon Killer, there's no different. An unabridged version just means that the OP compiled all of the chapters/volume into one thread for viewing pleasures. So you won't have to read a chapter and see comments in between!

    This is the best wuxia novel I ever read. Thanks to people who had put great efforts to translate this extraordinary novel. I had read more than 100 wuxia/ martial arts novels since elementary school, mostly written by Indonesian writer (Kho Ping Hoo), but in last 30 years time span, I also read famous works from Jin Yong and Gu Long. Therefore I am quite confident that my opinion on this novel is fairly accurate. English is not my first language, but I manage to allocate 2-4 hours a day to read this novel. I really like it and can't stop reading it although it takes 2 months for me to finish the reading. It is really the best wuxia novel I ever read.
