Translator here~

This isn't really a review because I suck at reviews, I simply want to tell you why I chose to translate this novel. There are three reasons:

  1. The MC. Ludagad pretty much described him in their review - he's calm, smart, and cares about people close to him. He's not some naive little bunny taken care of by the overbearing president, like in many Chinese danmei.
  2. The romance. Now, I'm not going to disclose too much, just let me repeat myself: not bunny x overbearing president.
  3. The setting. Apparently, this is off-putting to some people, yet the atmosphere of dynamic changes that happened in China in the early nineties is not only fascinating (to me at least) but it fits this rags-to-riches story to a T. And this is the rags-to-riches story.
As for the economic aspect and talking business... This more or less depends on my translating abilities - and you can always skip those parts.

Epiphanies of Rebirth is an enjoyable if slow-moving novel. If you like these, do give it a try.

I've already read this, so I can say with confidence that it's a very enjoyable read. It's the type of novel you can read when you want to relax and don't feel like tragedies or drama or endless brainless villains who only raise your blood pressure. There's no blood pressure raising here.

The MC in his original life was taken advantage of right after he lost his closest relative, and that spiraled into him losing direction in life and losing opportunities. He wasn't a loser though, so he picked himself up and found a job and constantly improved himself. But he never quite felt like he had fulfilled his potential. In his second chance at life, his mind is already mature and his choices come from hindsight, so he quickly betters his situation. The MC is smart and collected, not bent on revenge. He wants to help his friends as well. Altogether a very likable character.

The ML is interesting and quirky. He gives the impression of the typical cold and expressionless guy, but his inner world is a complete riot. So it's fun when he's in the scene. The relationship is pretty wholesome as well, certainly no complaints there.

The story is concentrated around the MC building up his business empire along the ML. The romantic subplot is also well-developed. It kinda slows down near the end of the novel and you're served abundant dog food (lots of displays of love), but I enjoyed it and needed it to relieve my stress.

I really enjoyed reading this. It was light and fluffy just the way I like it. The romance took a while and there could have been a few more sweet moments between the MC and ML but it was just right for me. 😊

I really enjoyed this story. The characters are well done and what's wonderful is that MC tries to take care of his family and friends. The relationship between MC and ML is adorable and most of the interactions between the characters are realistic and well done without being over the top or too dramatic. The only thing I side-eyed was some of the business descriptions but I mainly read for character development anyways. It's one of the few stories that I finished through MTL. Highly recommend!

so far I haven't seen much of the fluff the other comments talked about, or much romance. I like the MC, who doesn't have a super cheat or OP memory for past events. He also cares about the people round him and tries to be a decent human being. I'm curious to see how he grows as a person and what will happen with the ML in the future (i think he's the ML at any rate). Not that he's a nice guy-carpet or anything, there's plenty of face slapping... more>> moments.

that being said, once they start talking about business and finance my eyes go crossed and I get bored and easily distracted. I don't mind them talking about it in general terms but when they start getting into too much detail I lose interest, though this story doesn't seem to be as bad as Investment Life, (which I dropped; unless you already know the laws, economic and sociopolitical environment of the 1990s in China before reading, it's too confusing to MTL). With entire chapters here devoted to buying up real estate or the stock market I lost my enthusiasm and I decided to stop MTL and try and come back to the story once it's translated. I'll wait to rate until the translations at least catch up with my MTL but right now I'm leaning towards 3. <<less
