read this in chinese.

absolutely loved this. It's my favorite mxtx work because of its sheer scope and ambition. There is so much going on in this novel, it's such a treat reading this.

i think this book is quite polarizing. I think I can understand, since some of the flashbacks are really very long and my chinese is really very mediocre so I skipped some scenes.

but despite that, I really enjoyed this book because of the strength of her characters. Her characterization is always so well-done and each character is very... more>> distinct and so fun to read about. I really loved learning each of their motivations and seeing the arc that each of them goes through. This novel has her usual blend of hilarious-ness and angst, and I think this is the novel that expands on the little bit of social commentary we see in mdzs.

and this is not even mentioning the two main characters. I love xielian because I think it's rare that we get to see such a soft main character and I love his dynamic with huacheng so much. Fans may come after me but I think the sheer length of this book allows mxtx to develop xielian/huacheng's relationship much more satisfactorily than her previous novels. Their relationship growth was really such a treat to read, and honestly some of the best parts in this story.

really love it. I hope the translators will finish this so there'll be more fans <<less

Read this in Chinese. I loved it! It's a more 'lighthearted' bl - not as much angst and knives - and its short too. The main character (shou) is shameless and smart and he needles and teases the love interest endlessly. The love interest is stoic, intelligent and rational. Their dynamic is a little like Wei Wuxian/Lan Wangji from Mdzs. Anyway, I really enjoyed the dynamic of the two of them - they're really cute together and really funny too. Plot-wise it's about the main character figuring out who set... more>> him up for the fall that happens before the novel starts. There's a few side characters whom I love, but these side characters sometimes get really sad fates... Overall, I really loved this! A nice break from other mammoth and angst-laden bl. <<less

Be warned that this novel is angsty af. There's a lot of death in the last one quarter and I felt so sad after reading it...

I loved the main couple's dynamic. They're so cute and I just wish we could have slice of life forever! I can't get enough of Cwn and Moran but unfortunately we don't get enough of them being happily in love in the novel. Also Moran is thirsty af all the time.

The character growth arc is this novel's strongest point. Moran's slowburn growing feelings for Cwn... more>> and the changes in his attitude and understanding are such a pleasure to read. They feel so natural and organic.

I read this in the original Chinese and I didn't totally like her writing style. Also, I felt that the lady one quarter was a little too ambitious. <<less
