Breaking Through the Clouds

Totally recommend it. The cases are well-thought out, the twists are unexpected, and it gets unexpectedly hilarious at points where it should be serious.

Especially Yan Xie (the gong) 's mother Zeng Cuicui.

"When your son was 18, I felt that him marrying a princess was enough and to spare. When he was 25, I felt that if he just found a girl from a good home he could more or less pass his days. Come thirty, my pathetic requirements have already fallen to female, alive, and younger than me."

Mother Yan then took out a white paper from her bag, slamming it down before Father Yan with a bitter and hateful air. "Right now? I've even begun to self-study "The Problems of Gay Marriage"! What else can I ask for! You tell me, besides supporting him with a gold-plated shovel, what else can I do?!"

[collapse]

Logic is not this novels strong point, just saying first.

The strongest point is the rich descriptions and poetry, as well as a general idea of the early Tang dynasty.

Heaven Official’s Blessing
November 21, 2018

I have a feeling that this is an extremely polarising novel, talking about the nature of gods and ghosts and their relationship to humans. A lot of the concepts would require a complete anthropological study, not to mention politics and the relationship of royalty with divinity.

Like, the main couple's relationship needs a lens of 800 years of suffering in order to be comprehended, which would require much thought. They get along well - too well. It requires a second read to note that most of the time it was Hua... more>> Cheng playing along with Xie Lian's pace, and Hua Cheng more or less stalking Xie Lian for 800 years; as a ghost, the only thing which really keeps him in existence is his attachment to Xie Lian. At all.

I don't think any psychologist would ever want Hua Cheng as a client tbh... <<less

Got into this through the audio drama. This is a work where you seriously need brain cells, dreams and the interplay with real life intersect too much here. Besides this, the lush scenery as depicted through the author's pen also deserves a mention! Glad that someone picked it up!

Part-Time Taoist Priest

A previous work by the author behind "Those Years I Operated a Zoo", an innovative take on Chinese-style urban fantasy. The author has really done research - seen in the first few chapters, Spirit Official Wang's finger-seal -- yes, it's a middle finger, and no, it's not flipping at people, it really does look like that.

The translator has also done some effort in translating these concepts, especially considering how some concepts don't translate well into modern viewpoints.

Silent Reading

The starting works takes a lot of traction, the middle gets better, and the ending is best. As long as you have the attention span to get through at least the first arc, it'll be good XD.

Not for those looking for a light read, or looking to sleep at night...
