I did like the story a lot. However, I had a couple of problems--one was that my library had several editions of the book, but none were the same (some were 3-volume sets and some were 5-volume sets, I think), and some were incomplete. When I finished one book, I had to make sure the next one started in the same place and used pinyin for the names instead of Wade-Giles (I started with the pinyin version, so to switch to Wade-Giles would mean relearning everyone's names!). But that wasn't too much of a problem. The other problem was keeping track of everyone. Fortunately, the minor characters don't require too much attention, so you can focus on the main characters. A few times, though, I wanted to get some paper and start drawing a family tree!

If there are no "puzzles" in the "Dream", how comes that we have so many famous "Red  Dream Scholars"?

it will be a Good job, Monkey!

Of different versions of the book, I know two: one is called  A Dream of Red Mansions by Yang Hsien-yi and the other is The Story of the Stone by David Hawkes.

The first one by Yang is much better since David added too much of his ideas and a little bit misleading the target readers.

it's hard for me to understand it exactly even in Chinese
To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.
