What did you find to be ironic in this book?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

One good example of irony can be found in the character of the magistrate Fat-choy. Blinded by greed, he spends his entire time lusting after gold. Ironically, he ends up as a beggar. He does learn from his experiences, but in an ironic way.
