An excellent novel to read if you wanted to pass some time. I finished reading it for like a day nonstop. It has 90 chapters, so yeah, I didn't sleep.

The novel is nothing new. It has a system and bad neighbors cliche plot but still worth reading. The whole novel story is slow-moving, but for some reason, the author made it relatively fast-paced as it reaches the end of the story. And to tell you what, the end part of this novel could have been the best, but it was... more>> just not tackled more by the author. The story is just focused on the romance, but I think the author could've just slowed it more and focus on the cute fluffy side of her (MC) motherhood.

Spoiler
[collapse]

It also ended abruptly. I thought that because the author opened a new environment for the story (them going to the city), it'll continue but no. It just ended as the MC was able to open her restaurant. By the way, I was disappointed that her babies never had a side story for their own because both of them are just the cutest. There's a lot of things that wasn't tackled in the novel. It was never even revealed where are the original parents of the MC are. Like where they are? I expected them to come even when the MC was in the military compound with her husband but no. They never appeared once.

All in all, this is a good read of a novel but there are better novels out there with almost the same story plot. <<less

Like the other reviewers said, this story has a lot of gaps but if you're looking for a fluffy and relatively inoffensive read, this story is it.

The leads fall in love pretty quickly and none of the conflicts get dragged out.

It's a quick slice of life read at 90 chapters (compared to the stories with a chapter count in the hundreds/thousands). Also, compared to the other stories about life in this era (like Back to the Sixties, Bai Fu Mei in the 70s, Married to a Disabled Man in the... more>> 70s) it's definitely the most tame. While the few antagonists that are sprinkled throughout can be pretty annoying, they probably won't anger anyone that much because their fighting power is so weak. Almost all of them are stereotypical jealous sister-in-laws, villagers, neighbours, etc with poorly thought out schemes.
The leads aren't struggling in abject poverty either so them trying to make money is sort of a hobby more than a need for survival. I have to say though, the mother-in-law in this novel was a real surprise. She's nice to the FL and not overly conservative.

The ML is sweet.
Spoiler

He's stoic and serious like the other soldier archetypes but he'll always spoils his wife and he goes along with pretty much everything she says. My only complaint is I would've liked to see more of his character's thoughts and feelings, especially after they return to the base. Once he resumes his soldier job, he sort of becomes peripheral to the story imo. The whole thing about him being unlucky sort of disappears because he doesn't encounter anymore particularly horrible scenarios. I thought this was unfortunate because her being around to save him was literally the premise of the story.

[collapse]

Anyways, if you're bored and a fan of this genre I'd recommend it. <<less

I would say thisis a pretty standard 70's novel- with villages, food, black markets, college revival, economic freedom etc. It is a good read if you aren't looking for something different- just a fluffy romance in the 70s china. However there were somethings that I found missing.

  • Spoiler

    We never got to see MC's real family throughout the novel. I was looking forward to some drama, or faceslapping since I knew her family was patriarchal and the MC had transmigrated so there must be someone who will suspect her. However, her family was very vague.

    [collapse]
  • Spoiler

    One of the side character left her husband afer the college entrance examination. I know that people did break up with their spouses during this time, but it was due to the fact they wanted to appear for the next exam which married people were not allowed to, or hooked up with someone from college. But this side character did nothing at home except read and beat her child, and just as the news of exams reinstated was delivered, she immediately wanted to divorce, which doesn't make any sense. It feels like the author just wanted to show what was happening in the 70s and pasted it on this couple. (Now I could be wrong about this one since my only source is other novels I read on this platform)

    [collapse]
  • Spoiler

    The previous life was never expanded either. It just felt like it was a tool for modern MC to accept the ML immediately as her fated one.

This is the first time I gave a book review, I already mtled this book to chapter 37 so far. I think it's enjoyable and fun. I liked the fluffy moments in the story and I don't see many flaws. Conflicts get resolved pretty quickly, at least compared to other Chinese novels.
Spoiler

Although in the first chapter or so, the MC learns that Han Aiguo (the ML) is one of her previous lifetime's lover and she accepts him basically right away, so it's a little unrealistic. I guess I could say she has high adaptability. I like the MC's character otherwise, she finds farm work tiring, is a foodie, and resolves conflicts pretty well :)

[collapse]
I find it sort of funny that Han Aiguo's (the ML) name has the same characters as "patriotic" in Chinese. If you like reading stories that take place in China during the 1960s-1980s, then I think this story will be great for you!

The translations are great and the story is fluffy. It's just that...

I felt bad for the original Su Yue. She was tricked into the youth program and was depressed. In fact, she was so depressed that she "lived in a daze" and "couldn't get up from bed." She was also an introvert and had no friends. Her last wish was for someone to live instead of her.

Our MC comes along and gets to live again thanks to the original. After noticing that others don't like the original, do you know what she said?

She felt it was indeed the original's fault. No wonder others didn't like her.

I was shocked. I get that the original was working so she had responsibilities and her depression caused conflict with others but wow.

I tried to read more after that, but I couldn't. Transmigration stories are really morally tricky. Since essentially a soul steals another person's body. The least the MC (and author) could have done is to respect and be understanding of the original.

[collapse]

Other than that and the plot holes. It's an okay read. There are better transmigration stories. <<less

This was an alright read. It's not the best but it's not bad either.

Like the other reviewers said, there were a lot of missing information that should have been added. I would like to know about her family and how that Mao girl who abandoned her husband and son fared. I was really hoping she didn't even get accepted to go.

Also, the children of everyone else annoyed me so bad. The third sister in laws kids and that Fang woman's son just made me want to take off my belt... more>> or something.

I really liked the ML and the MC but moreso the ML. He was just so good.

5/10 would maybe recommend. <<less

This was a light read, although the arcs felt too long and too short at the same time. Towards the end, it also just felt like the author was just done with the story and just wanted to get it over with lol

The story was pretty good. It was fluffy, no misunderstandings between protagonist and no major problems.

One of the things I am dissatisfied with is the ending.

... more>>
Spoiler

In the end our FL opens her private restaurant and ML gets promoted and after that they had s*x and the story is over.

[collapse]

I literally thought that there were still many chapters remaining and it ends just like that.

Many intresting characters were left hanging in the end. If only the author spend one or two chapters to let us know about their ending, I wound give this novel a 5 star.

And the other thing is Fl's parents. It was only mentioned a couple of times. It was said that they were patriarchal and send their daughter to suffer in the village. And then all the people forgot about them. They didn't even appear once and neither did they send any letters to enquire about their daughter when she was in the village. I thought I would get some face slapping chapters but no.

Overall this is a good nivel to read if you can ignore the pot holes in the novel. <<less

It was such a joy reading this one. MC has a very great character and I especially like how she's even excited for meeting the ML, instead of being repulsed by it. I mean, a quality man turns out to be your destined lover, I would be excited as well. The romance is great and the MC and ML have money-making skill. The greedy neighbors/relatives are always present - very typical for Chinese novels in an old era setting. I highly recommend reading this.

Do not expect amazing plot building though.... more>> Read this for the fluff. <<less

Good read. Its simple and relaxing. Oh, I wanted a few more chapters.

Spoiler

Main plot is that MC and ML are like the destined match every lifetime. But a traverser broke them apart. MC was badly hurt. ML exchanged his like vitality to save her. And so, because of this, ML and MC can no longer be together and ML will be subjected to a life full of bad luck and loneliness. But because ML was destined to be a soldier every lifetime, he also save alot of lives. As the system phrases it, the heavens will not let a man who saved and can still save alot of lives just die. So the system was sent to MC to protect ML.

Not much problems along the way. Except for the annoying 3rd sister-in-law and the occasionally annoying patriarchal 2nd sister-in-law. There's also those annoying neighbors in the military compound.

Its refreshing to read a novel in the 70's with a kind, reasonable and amiable mother-in-law. She very different from other mother-in-law in other novels with the same setting.

Love between MC and ML developed fast. Well, I guess it got a lot to do with the fact that they were destined to be together even on their past lives. So there's the automatic attraction. However, the marriage didnt happened until about around c40's.

I really like this story, reading this is like a short vacation from reading a lot of dog blood drama novels. It's very light-hearted and very fluffy, basically little to no drama. My only problem with it is that it ends very abruptly and that to me there is still some things that needs to continue on in the end like, I want to see if the niece will now achieve her dreams, what really happened to that one kid who was abandoned by his mom, and that I want... more>> to see the MC's business growing.

Overall it's such a nice read. <<less

I mtled all the chapters. Cute and wholesome, but very abrupt ending. I don't know how to put this. I want to say there were a lot of loose ends, but there wasn't much of a story to begin with. Worth a quick read, but don't go into this expecting actual, fleshed out characters.

If the ending were a little less abrupt I would give this a 3.5+. But right now, the story is just average.

Let me say that this novel is cute and totally wholesome!

I love the MC's character and the ML? Oh God, where can I find a man like him?

I have a particular bias on this author because four of her novels is part of my all time favorite. I really love her writing style.

The system is just an add on so just immerse yourself the world on their world.

Thank you @Isohungry Translations for picking this up and kudos for your hard work you put into this novel!!

this is such a feel good read! I found myself smiling while MTL reading this and my parents asked me if I got a boyfriend 囧

paigetheparr said it best about this novel! It's a very fluffy read but there's quite some missing chunks in this fluffy slice of life cake lol not too important to affect the story but it gets you thinking once you're aware of them.

ML and MC are just too sweet together that I want to cry from all this delicious dog food (*ฅ́ ˘ฅ̀*) ♡ overall,... more>> definitely would recommend reading for a good time! <<less

I binge read this one while mtl-ing. It's quite a good read actually. Minor angst and some repeated drama conflicts (family ones?)

Spoiler
[collapse]
The
repeated family drama kinda made my mind ache. Like aren't they separated? Coz, it doesn't really look like one to me. It just feels like the whole drama thing is nonsense. And the act of sone characters. Uhm, the villain? Well, minor villain that can't be considered a villain. Ahh, did you get it? I mean, just some annoying pests. Coz, almost all of them acts the same. From the second wife, third wife; their kids and themselves as well. Ex-fiance, Friend Commander's wife and her son. They are so annoying like to the max level haha.

Spoiler
[collapse]
Also the story feels so short. I'm not satisfied. There's so many details that wasn't mentioned in the novel. Like the original bodies family. Aside from the first few chaps that their names was mentioned. They never did appear. Not even once. Oh, and mao-chan. He is such a pitiful kid. I'd like to know the ending of that as well since it feels like the author forgot about him after the ml's brother (4th) got admitted to college. He was never mentioned since.
