" ... provides excellent source materials to mythologists and historians of science geography, and society. Specialists in fiction find it important as the earliest record of such key story-cycles as sailing to the Milky Way and the capture of Sichuan women by monkey gods and as evidence of the development of ancient stories like those of the Buzhou Mountain and the diety Kuafu. It influenced the Soushenji among other later fictional works.--Cf. Indiana Companion to Traditional Chinese Literature, p. 215-216.
