If you don't like that style, you'll find it difficult to get past it to the entertaining and humorous stories of Kai Lung.
The formatting could use some improvement (uneven margins on my iPhone, double line breaks for paragraphs), but it's not too bad.
Actually, of course, these are stories written by Ernest Bramah, who did NOT live in ancient China, but only pretended he did, but from a Western perspective they're still extremely good stories, and in reality they were written for the Western world.
