Rebirth of an Abandoned Woman
November 14, 2017
Status: Completed
I really liked this. Even though it's a 'rebirth' story that was kickstarted by the MC's originally tragic fate, it's not entirely revenge-driven. The husband who had abandoned her in her previous life is also not as heartless as one would originally think.

There were also quite a number of annoying characters in the story besides the ML's childhood sweetheart. I was most especially irritated by...

The ML's elder sister and her husband -- they were so irritating that I was hoping for a much much more satisfying form of retribution than how it was dealt with in the book.

The only downside to it was how the ending was executed. It felt rather abrupt, considering how certain events prior to it were basically drawn out. It felt like the author just wanted to get it over and done with by that point and so decided to compress the ending as much as possible.

Other than that, I really liked the main character. She was not too talented nor was she a well-renowned beauty, but she's a quick-thinker as well as considerate. The antagonist is also smart so the MC also gets caught unawares by her schemes from time to time, yet she still somehow manages to remain upright and steadfast. She's also human, so there will be parts where she gets fed up and doesn't make a secret of it when other people go too far. I found those parts to be some of my favourites, especially after all the other times where she had to bottle up her anger and grievances just to maintain her manners and decorum.

It really grinds my gears how the ML's mother was so easily influenced by the ML's cousin's words and easily blames everything on the MC at the slightest provocation. If it weren't for her, most of that cousin's schemes wouldn't have come to fruition. At the same time, I also had the nagging suspicion that if they had told her of the cousin's true nature earlier then everything might've been resolved more quickly. Their main reason not to reveal it earlier was that they were worried about her health... and yet everything was revealed in the end anyway... without any real repercussions to her health.

There were a bunch of side stories as well, but I didn't really think any of them overshadowed the main story too much. All in all, it's not a perfect novel, but I found it to be better than most. <<less
