Before her rebirth, Wei Luo was an innocent little girl.

After rebirth, she appeared lovable on the outside but was a different person on the inside.

Those who learned of her true nature yielded to her.

Only the prince regent regarded her as a treasure; no matter how much he pampered her, it was not enough for him.

Anything she wanted, he gave her, including the princess position that she didn’t want, which he stubbornly pushed onto her.

It's a pretty good book. Decent amount of face-slapping, amazing romance with a clean, crazy-for-MC, possessive and obsessed ML. The MC is smart and cautious, does not take any sh*t and more importantly, dishes it out to those who piss her with regularity.

Her best friend, her brother are really good secondary characters. Even the male antagonist who falls for the MC is suitably pathetic that by the end of the story, you will be more inclined to pity him.

The translator has done an amazing job. Especially while explaining the idioms... more>> and the jargons, the various clothing styles and jewellery that the MC and others wore over the course of the story was really translated superbly. So, a round of applause for the translator-sama! <<less

OMG I'm having a bit of a hard time to read this for one simple reason.

The ML is a total creep. A man in his 20s going around trying to get a 13 year old girl to love him.

Wtf.

She's even trying to ignore him but he continues to press on. All. The. Time.

This story was great at first, but the story gets perverted in a non-enjoyable way. I understand women were considered marriageable at an earlier age during ancient China but wtf does he have to molest her, and before they get married? It's not even PG-13 kissing, it gets to downright perverted touching before the MC is even considered an adult. I don't understand the need for this. There are better ways to have romantic interactions: smart dialogue between the MC and ML or outwitting a villain's plot together. Anything but... more>> creeper molestation. The ML is forceful about it too. The only reason why it's not considered non-con is because the MC would have stabbed anyone else that tried to molest her, but she wasn't exactly open to this either. More like she was trained to accept advances from a young age by someone who was more than a decade older... Really creepy. <<less

This series is fun to read if you are shallow or can look past the shallow writing. I can be and do that at times so I will give this a good rating on that basis only.

I don't really mind the age thing between the MLs at all because I've seen an experienced this kind of relationship. The age limit convention/standard and law is to protect those who are vulnerable but it can't be rationalized that such affections cannot and do not exist and aren't genuine and true. For this... more>> alone, I want to see how she writes their HE.

What I struggle with in this novel is the author's constant flattery of her MC at every turn in descriptive detail and for every mundane action. If not for this, the novel could be at least have it's length. The author introduces all other characters through the MC who is a big snob and judgemental to boot.

Pick this up if you don't mind a shallow storyline. <<less

Chongfei Manual has to be one of those books, where you just can't stop reading. Unless it is getting translated. It is a really short read, compared to those novels with 1000+ chapters, and with way less dramatic twists and and barely any useless chapters that are not needed.
Spoiler

The female lead is considered like drop dead gorgeous or at least in the ML's thoughts. She captured the male lead from early on and secured her place in his heart without her knowing. In this relationship, Zhao Jie was the 100% pursuer and Wei Luo had a very tsundere vibe to her. Never less, the interactions between them are considered loving, and Zhao Jie pampers her to no extent. The love rivals didn't make a huge impact on the plot, as Gao Dan Yang (likes ML) is shipped away to a distant country as a bride and Li Song is stuck with Wei Luo's cousin. The engament between the Song House and Ah Luo was cunningly broken by Zhao Jie, so Song Hui disappeared later on.

[collapse]
Well, anyways this novel is a must read and though the romance is a little slow paced cause there is a huge age gap between them, when Zhao Jie starts thinking about marrying her, he starts making advances at Ah Luo.

Unique novel. One of best rebirth novel with little revenge. MC is ruthless, clever and cute. One of best MC. I like her personalty. She love her brother and protected him from annoying bitch people.

MC and male lead is best and perfect couple of novel. Male lead is caring possessive to MC. He protected her. He is easily jealous when MC pay attention to her fiancé.

Worth to read this special novel. I adored this kind of novel. Deserved five stars

Im not a big fan of time travel and rebirth but considering all that this was great.. It is a revenge story, the MC is clever and smart, acts very quickly according to the situation. The romance is slow but it is in the air, both leads have not realized it yet. The author shows alot of chapters where the MC is still a child which is very refreshing.

The protagonist is a 16 yr old who gets to relive her life from when she is 6.. This is a story... more>> of how her life and others life can be changed with just simple, unnoticeable moments, where our leading lady acts very quickly and very cunningly, first few chapters is a bit confusing but it flows easier after a while. Our leading lady is strong (for her age), extremely beautiful, way beyond smart and is very very very resourceful (which made the ML falls for her) . Wei Luo seems a bit cruel at times but this is all due to her previous life's suffering, but shes very loyal and kind to people who treats her kindly and is ready to change her opinion about others (esp the ML).

I loved that the Male lead is super loyal to his lady but I don't think he thinks of her as his lady yet, hes more like a protector, and hes just starting to feel jealous about other males surrounding her and believe me theres a lot of other males surrounding her.. Male lead is also very cunning and cold to everyone but her, and she has him in her little finger. I have a feeling that the romance will get out of bag very quickly now that the MC is grownup enough.

Also another great thing about this story is the side roles.. There is enough side characters to make the story more deep and not too much as to steal the limelight from the main couple (I hate when too much importance is given to side roles esp in a romance novels). The little titbit's from author at the end of each chapter makes the story even more interesting.

All in all this is a good read and the translators are doing an amazing job.. Too bad the previous translators could not finish it but Fuyu Neko is doing an awesome job.. And hats off to the team for picking this up.. And I would recommend this to everyone. <<less

First off: Thank you to the translator for the quality translations

Updated review:

Started out AMAZING (great plot, likeable characters etc.) but just goes downhill 😔

Spoiler

The novel is beautifully written I'm just not a fan of the direction it took. At first the relationship between the MC and ML was cute but then the ML started being kind of creepy and obsessed. Actually wish the MC ended up with one of the secondary leads

So far, this has been a pretty fantastic story. It has drama, some action, decent pacing, and has a very satisfying length for each chapter (meaning you're going to spend more than 30 sec. per chapter, unlike some other novels.... which is pretty great in my opinion). Not to mention that the translation style isn't choppy or weird; it flows very smoothly and the translator paints a pretty picture in my head when showing what the setting may be like by including pictures of objects or places at the end... more>> of every chapter. I would highly recommend it if you spent the time even reading my review :) <<less

Brilliant Protagonist. I'm glad for once to see the protagonist use their head to set up a counter for the misdeeds of those scheming behind her. Maybe I've just been reading too many reincarnation stories where the characters get by with luck but at least this girl THINKS. I'm quite happy with the story thus far.

Translation is 5 stars. One of the best translators I've seen who makes really good choices regarding the historical terms and actually aims to make the story readable instead of leaving in tons of jargon for 'cultural accuracy' BS. I've read novels that were practically 25% pinyin in historical settings (which is just awful to process, and this is coming from someone who's watched historical Chinese dramas, is familiar with historical terms, and understands pinyin. So I can imagine how much worse it can get for less fluent people!). Love... more>> the translator notes and image links as well.

This book is a fluffy, slice-of-life ish light entertainment in a fictional historical era, which can be quite fun to read if you ignore the problematic parts. The pacing is not bad, and with such excellent translator, it was definitely a smooth read. Be warned though, the MC and ML are both truly awful people. They both have bad morals. The MC is also a very spoiled and vain white lotus type.

I didn't like that the punishments for the villains, minor and major, don't reflect their deeds. It can be argued that this is a reflection of 'reality' where not-so-bad people can have horrible endings while truly-bad people can have happy endings, but it didn't feel like the author wrote that intentionally. Considering the other inconsistencies in the writing, it's more than likely the author was trying to spice up the romance and tried to throw in some revenge spots. Unfortunately, that means truly disturbing paragraphs would appear abruptly in the middle of fluffiness with no transitions.

Spoiler

Things that got pretty old:

    • over-the-top bad cruelty towards women (some people can 'rationalize' this to say that historical eras are commonly misogynistic and women have no power etc. but also keep in mind the author clearly chose to put those things into the novel and chose to write the outcomes of some characters much much worse than other characters. If we look at the male character (Li Song) who helped ruin the MC's family in the past life and also offended the MC a ton of times after her rebirth, he ending is pretty good compared to the ending of MC's half-sister who pretty much only avoided her or sniffed at her after her rebirth; that's the definition of misogyny.)
    • prejudice against children (I get the idea about getting vengeance against bad people that insulted you, but they've literally done nothing to the MC in her past life except exist or were spoiled by the MC's stepmother/enemy, yet the MC still wants to get revenge on 5 year olds?? Is it too radical to want see a MC that is not narrow minded or more generous/forgiving? Even if you disregard basic human decency, from a practical perspective, if you remove the bad influence, you can easily influence your enemies to be good to you since they're so young??)
    • inconsistent characterizations (the MC is reborn, so she's actually close to the age of the ML, but she literally treats all the kids around her like they're the same age as her, so it's clear that the author forgot that the MC is not actually 10-12 and has her flipping between 10-12 or 20/her true age whenever it's convenient. This is especially disturbing when the MC was just reborn and acting like 5-6 yr old... dude you're like 16...)

First of all, the translation is excellent.

This was a lively story. It has a few dark moments but not much, it has more funny and sweet moments.

I honestly don't have a problem with the 9 year age gap. It didn't bother me. I liked how the ML treats the MC. They were protective over each other. They treasured each other, I liked that.

If you want to read the story, just read it. If I didn't read this book based on the most of the reviews, I'd have missed this sweet story. I think the reviews mostly discourages people from the books. You decide if the book is good or bad AFTER you read it. Don't decide before you read it please.

5 stars solely on the translators excellent skills. The author's work itself I would rate a 2. Overall a 3.

Spoiler

There was some unnecessary cruelness to minor characters, very dubious consent, and Wei Luo (MC) is narcissistic and becomes annoying towards the end.

There are definitely unfinished storyline. It dedicated several scenes to Gao Qing Yang and Wei Chang Hong and doesn't even follow up. It left us the readers hanging.

For a reincarnation novel, it is a disappointment to see such a weak female lead. She claimed to be ruthless to whoever would do her wrong, but after dealing with the stepmother. And dealing with a couple minor characters Wei Luo worried more about her looks. It was disheartening to see her from having so much conviction to act out against the concubine mother and stabbing people with a hairpin to being so self absorbed and focused on ways to beautify herself.
The main redeeming point was the male lead who was so sweet and doting towards her although it was very questionable since she was so young at the start of the novel. However, even though there are moments where she acts stubborn, for the most part she is subservient to him. He shoulders most of the responsibilities, shelters her, and spoils her. As sweet as he was, it felt a bit lacking.

[collapse]

Regarding Li Song

Spoiler

I cannot believe the author dedicated a chapter to him! Even though it was a unique idea to have him save Wei Luo in the oriig AL timeline, he was such a bad guy!!! Yes we were the tiniest bit sympathetic since he yearned for Wei Luo but he never did anything worth of her in the alternate timeline! He drugged and led to the downfall of WL twin brother in the original timeline. In the alternate timeline, she was someone who ignored him which led him to being obsessed over her. He also willingly let his wife be repeatedly raped. Even though Wei Sheng was devious, I hate the usage of rape to crush female characters. I wished this extra chapter would have been dedicated to Wei Luo's brother and his romance.

[collapse]

If you came for a strong female character, face slaps and revenge, avoid. This is more of a slice of life and seeing how an ancient Chinese female character beautifies herself and most of the time she is lazily reclining in bed, being carried around, or ordering people around.

As someone who loves food, I appreciate the photos placed in translations as reference. Excellent touch! However there are several sweet moments between the two main leads that are very romantic and definitely warms your heart.

Will definitely check out the translator's new work. <<less

It was one reading experience with a little bit funny, a lot of fluffy and romance, some scheming and family love.

It started with a little bit heavy plot but as the story progressed, eventually became light and fun.

If you like dominant ML's character with power and possessive traits, this is a novel for you.

... more>> For MC 's character, she describes as a very beautiful, smart and noble lady. She also holds grudges and sometimes a little bit petty. But that imperfect character made her more realistic.

I have plan to reread this novel in the near future.

And then of course I wouldn't be able to enjoy this story without translator's hardwork. If there is another rating for translation quality, I'd like to give 10/10 stars. The translator did amazing job and she keeps consistent updates, this make me admire her professionalism (although she knows very well this job is without salary). <<less

I stopped at the time the MC accepts the ML's love. The way she accepted ML and rejected her fiance made me broken-hearted.

Girl, if u don't love him as a man why did u keep him by ur side all of these time?

I love the sibling love between MC and her twin but...

Boy, u can't be more useless than this, can u?

And the way she solves the problems is kind of reckless to me. Whenever she couldn't restrain her emotion, she just vent it out with hairpin. WHAT?! Can't u be ruthless with other way? That's not ruthless nor smart way, that's just venting ur hatred!

Anyway, I gave it three stars for her interaction with ML (at six years old), her kind fiance and best friend, and her care for her twin.
