The three novels are all written in the form of dictionary style, and the entries become the basic unit of synchronic narration. The entries in the Dictionary of the Khazars and Maqiao Dictionary form a certain narrative series by connecting the entries of characters and events. Therefore, the entries in the two works are essentially temporal causality. However, there is no plot chain between the entries of the Qinghai Tibet Dictionary, only some fragments with centripetal force, so it is a synchronic space juxtaposition relationship. Among the three works, the Qinghai Tibet Dictionary is more experimental and completely anti-plot and anti-character. it is a Book of wisdom about the history, geography, religion, culture, customs and legends of the Qinghai Tibet Plateau.
