Plot 2/5 - A popular theme with Chinese novels and girl protagonist, nothing new.
A mash up of various cliches molded into a novel called Princess Medical Doctor.
Female lead - Portrayed as an independent individual that falls for the cold protag. Typical. Knows a lot of stuff. Typical. Typical. Typical. You can pretty much says shes likeable and tolerable. 3/5 for her
Male lead - Portrayed as one with disability. Typical. Cold. Typical. Stupid in relationships. Typical. Also portrayed as someone strong and powerful and always in control. Meh. 2/5
Supporting Characters -
Can be classified into three:
Allies that have some brain
Stupid people that are considered as ally
Typical. Theres no depth or two-faces or any backstabbing or a plot-twist that is so good as of 125 chapters.
There is? Well hot-dawg. As far as I've seen (Aside from some slow romance slowly coming [the pacing is kinda retarded by the way but who am I to judge; its an opinion. Don't bite.]) theres little to none. Yup yup. Female lead slowly falls for ML, Aaaand then ML fails to live up to expectation. ML likes FL buuuut heeees prideful. Servants are uhm again either stupid or has some brain. Does their attitude toward FL change? Yes. With depth? If you consider simple admiration as a depth then oh boy. OH BOY.
Writing 1/5 -
The icing on the cake on this novel is its author and how he downplays every sh*t the female lead goes through. Im not sure but I think in this novel, nearly dying and being untrusted isn't as big of a deal as it should have been. The author also shows how to properly deal with drama. Time lapse. The only regret that I have aside from the fact that the Female Lead can't get away from the Male lead is that I've read this novel.
PS: Get ready for Forced Drama as well if you're reading this
Roland - the MC, knows a lot. Quite questionable how he remembers and knows a lot of stuff but at least he's not as omniscient as other MC in novels are. Theres a degree of realism. Readers can relate to him because he doesn't have any powers at all. Just modern day knowledge.
Witches - The witches are not tools as some would say. They are hired by roland. Two different things. In case you haven't noticed, I won't blame you. Now if you'll argue that employees are tools maybe you should go and have a therapy or something. Their characters aren't sloppily made as some would claim as well. Their attitude changed as time went by.
