Fortunate Wife

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Shennugou is an old and infertile place. It’s hard to find a woman to marry here.

The Li family is extremely poor. With only four bare walls for a home, they don’t even have a woman to manage the household.

The Heavens had mercy today, Li family’s oldest son had saved a woman at the market and brought her back home.

Li Man was killed by her mother-in-law and transmigrated. She was almost hanged on the first day, but, fortunately, she was rescued by the Li brothers.

This doesn’t mean that her destiny is over.

The language didn’t make sense at first, she discovered that, here, standard Mandarin sucks.

So I'm a huge fan of hardworking MCs and farming/slice-of-life novels, but after 60 chapters, literally none of that has happened. The first 50 chapters have described about 3 days of the MC's new life.

The MC gets up intending to do work? Immediately interrupted by so-called troublesome neighbor's wife who is apparently irrationally jealous of her after seeing her for THE SECOND TIME with ZERO interactions and then accuses her of being a prostitute, yada yada. Absolutely no respect for female characters. The three other female characters who have... more>> shown up also try to scheme the MC despite meeting her for all of 2 minutes.... =___= If women really went around like psychopaths to scheme against all the other female "competition, " including those they've never even had a conversation with, all the women in that village would have killed each other long ago.

Maybe the author wanted to show us that the MC was 10x better than everyone else which is why she deserves 5 husbands while the other women all deserve to die.

Oh did I mention, apparently it's normal to get stoned to death by the villagers for trying to leave the village? And apparently the village elder needs to be called to make a "judgment" because the MC was accused of not being a virgin. Yeah, that is totally everyone's business, WTF.

Spoiler

Yes, I understand this is ancient China, which means a woman's reputation is like gold. And there were other reasons why the village elder was called in to mediate. But think about it, why would the cannon fodder make a big deal of the MC not being a virgin IF the villagers wouldn't have punished the MC for it? The entire scene was so laughably ridiculous, the author clearly fabricated it out of nowhere with zero historical basis.

Let's not forget the absolutely giant logic gap of villagers "saving up all their life" to be able to bring home a wife, and then immediately killing said wife if she tries to run away? Uh... so suddenly they're ok with the equivalent of throwing all that money down the drain because things didn't work out once? Even becoming slave traders and reselling them would have made more sense. And that's assuming it's logical to have all the villagers basically hunting down and killing their neighbor's wives for fun.

[collapse]

As for the harem part? One guy flirts with her then the others become jealous and start flirting in turn, rinse & repeat. And due to the language barrier/misunderstandings, they spend more time discussing her than talking to her. All of that would have been OK if the author hadn't spent at least 50% of the story to put in completely pointless scheming admirers (each guy has at least one) for no logical reason except to show off how awful they are compared to the MC.

I never thought there'd be a day where Imperial Harem drama seemed reasonable by comparison. <<less

If you want extreme and mature polygamy, this is not for you. But if you like Wife, you can’t run after eating type of s*x, then, go on.

Female lead

Li Man

She is beautiful, kind, and hard working. But to be honest, she’s the typical perfect girl. Nothing notably special.

Male Leads

Li Mo (Eldest) The Virginity taker😂

He’s the main “master” of the family aside from Li Man whim they follow also. Hard working and dependable.

Li Yan (2nd)

He’s a great craftsman. According to Li man, he’s the most aggressive in bed.

Li Shu (3rd)

He’s good at fishing. He wants to become a General/Hero. The most hot headed one.

Li Hua (4th)

The scholar. Li man wants their children to be like him because he’s calm and smart.

Li Xiao Wu (5th)

the Youngest. His character would turn 180 degrees when he starts to see Li Man as a woman. When his brother have s*x with Li man, they would trick him into saying they’re helping her catch rats in her room😂

Real identity of Li Man

Spoiler

This is somewhat smooth sailing, the real Li Man is Shanguang Yu wich is related to the royal family and the Criwn Prince’s fiancée

This is best reverse harem. I really like this novel. MC personalty is like MC from assassin farmer. They both have caring, hardworking, mature, knowledge personalty. For some reason this novel is similar to assassin farmer how they live in farmer.

I have actually finished reading this awhile back. It is a pretty good story and fairly easy to read. The story is a real feel good factor and be prepare to feel envy on how fortunate our MC is for having such great husbands.....

So far, this seems like a slice-of-life reverse harem story with a unassuming and hard-working heroine. (Update: Wrong, this is a white-lotus, clumsy, low-intelligence MC)

Summary:

Li Man is killed by her mother-in-law and reborn in a poor village, where nobody understands her language. The previous owner of her body was recently bought by the Li Brothers as a wife. Despite her initial panic and language barrier, Li Man eventually settles into village life.

... more>> Review:

At this point, it's too early to know where the story will go. The translation quality is good and the main character is likeable. I have yet to get a solid impression of the brothers so far.

I will update this review after more chapters are released.

Update:

So far, the main character is extremely passive, timid, and ignorant. Despite being married to 5 men, trapped in an unfamiliar body in an unfamiliar land, unable to understand the foreign language, she makes zero effort to learn or investigate her situation.

If you are hoping for a hard-working heroine, you won't find one here. Li Man is the type of pure, clumsy, white-lotus MC who bumbles all her chores, breaks dishes, adopts animals she can't afford to feed, etc.

Even though she's a "modern" adult woman, she has the awareness and intelligence of an elementary schooler and is easily embarrassed around her teenage husband. Not only that, she purposefully avoids people when they want to explain things to her, plays dumb as a way to avoid discussion or conflict, and runs away "embarrassed" at least 3 times per chapter.

It takes her 39 chapters to realize 1 of the 5 men might be her husband. It takes her over 50 chapters for her to decide that it might be a good idea to learn the language. At 80 chapters, she still doesn't realize that she's married to the 4 other men she lives with.

I can't find any redeeming features about her so far (other than instantly being willing to throw away her modern past to play at living a peasant life) and her entire existence is supported by her new husbands. I'm lowering my rating to 3 stars. <<less

Looks good. Will rate it if I can see potential in this novel. For now I'll wait for the chapters to increase because cliffhanger will stab me to death (╥﹏╥) (I know every reader knows this painful death (≧▽≦)). So I'll come back roughly when there is 5 chapters in total. I know sorry for being demanding. Please bear with me. Thanks for the hard work to the author and translator for introducing another novel to us.(♥→o←♥)

I skipped like the last 20 chapters to go to the last one, but I’m pretty sure it didn’t affect much of my understanding of the story.

I really liked the book at first. Especially since it’s a polyandry book. But as you go down to further reading it gets tedious. I don’t know if it’s because I’m mtl-ing the novel or I just lost interest.

Either way, it’s not a bad book but it also isn’t a good book in my opinion.
