Greetings, Ninth Uncle

Description

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

Cheng Yujin was the elder twin sister, who was supposed to be engaged to an excellent man. However she later learned that her fiance, Marquis Jingyong, had proposed to her because he mistakenly recognized her as her younger twin sister. Marquis Jingyong and her younger sister had a deep relationship, and after many twists and turns, finally broke through all hardships and became eternal lovers. While Cheng Yujin was the villain who replaced her sister’s good marriage, kept framing her sister, and hindered the main couple to be together. A really wicked older sister and poisonous ex-wife.

After the younger twin sister was reborn, she revealed Cheng Yujin’s ‘conspiracy’ early on. Everyone scorned her, and her so-called fiance was indifferent. Cheng Yujin sneered and tore off their engagement letter in front of her fiance.

Everyone was gloating and happily waiting to see her regret her actions. However, before Marquis Jingyong had a chance to see Cheng Yujin’s regret, he saw his former fiancee marrying her uncle.

The ninth uncle of Cheng family was truly a hidden dragon, his real power frightening everyone.

***

Cheng Yujin, this coquettish little wife, lightly lifted her eyebrows and casually said, “A mere Marquis Jingyong, is he worthy? Do you think that robbing him away will affect me?”

Almost forgot to say, ninth uncle wasn’t surnamed Cheng. His real name was Li Chengjing, the crown prince.

This is one of the few novels who will really made you realize how hard the life of a woman in Ancient China. At the middle of chapters 80-90, there's this scenario where the MC chooses to save the young boy who was on the verge of drowning--it was later explained that she did it because (50%) she wanted to save the boy, and (50%) she want LQ (?) to save her so that she would have another reason for him to marry her.

Now, in most of historical chinese novels,... more>> there's always this girl who would pretend to be drowning and then some guy would save her---which she will then force him to marry. Most of us would think that she was such a scheming b*tch. However, if we change it into her perspective, there's really nothing she could do---in an era where her future lies in her husband, is it really wrong for her for wanting to marry someone better?

The MC in this novel once mentioned "If I was a man I wouldn't look down on that kind of woman" "My ability is better than my brothers, I can recite and read poems better than then. If I were given an opportunity to participate in the examination, I wouldn't even do this kind of thing"

The MC is selfish, she only thinks about herself, and yes, she was very manipulative. She was smart and cunning, she knows what she wants, and what she doesn't. If you think about it, if she were born as a man, just imagine how terrifying her ability would be in court.

Unfortunately she wasn't.... Unfortunately she was born in a place where women were in a lower standing than men.

I'm gonna be honest, there were times that I kinda hate her. Why? Because she's too realistic, she's not a ditsy datsy cutesy and flowery type of woman, nor was she a martial god, business master, and 'oh men fall for me left and right and devote your whole life to me' kind of protagonist. She was just..... her, as flawed as she was, she was my favorite character. Because, she really felt alive.

So yeah, 5/5.

mwah~

Edit: I totally agree with that one commentator, who ever said that the MC is Mary Sure, come fight me (+2) <<less

I finished reading this months ago but never got around to giving a review.

I consider this novel one of my favorites because 1) she is not the typical cold blooded MC nor a real white lotus—ya know, the ignorant, almost dumb one—and 2) the story and its main couple appeals to my rational side.

The charm of this novel is that there is logic to things, to how characters act, how they struggle, how their motives shape their personality and life. It deeply resonates to the human psyche—how everything in life... more>> is mostly gray and not black or white and that most if not all of us just had to waddle through the muck and make the most of it.

The romance is slowburn but reasonable because it is based on the inner characters of the main pair. They are both introverts, shrewd, and secretive. I am happy that their love developed in such a matter-of-fact tone, a development which did not break their characterization.

There’s no passionate showcase, the kind where an outsider would awed and call it romantic. No, here, the love is quiet, boring, and true.

This kind of love is steady and one that can happen in reality. This is the kind of love that one can truly say, yep, they’re gonna get old together. No doubt.

And the icing on the cake is the side story—a funny albeit melancholic end. <<less

I echo what the other comments have mentioned. If "To be a virtuous wife" is your cup of tea, you might want to give this a try. The MC is very calculating from a modern perspective but looking at it from a historical lens, it seems pretty accurate. The concept of happiness and love are pretty modern, so I think the way the author has addressed the romance is pretty on point. The MC is not as mature as she appears in public. A lonely girl who only believes in... more>> herself and doesn't rely or wait for a man to save her when she's in trouble. I really respect her even if her very strong calculating nature puts me off, I can get that it's a product of the times and a means for survival. I like that no one is a true villain and side characters do get their share of the story. There's the right amount of drama and it's not overboard either. There's not a lot of cliche tropes compared to other historical dramas. It's pretty easy to MTL and I would recommend it if you can accept a MC who is very calculating. Otherwise I don't think you will have a good time no matter how well written the story is. As for the romance, it's gradual and pretty natural but also the ML has his work cut out for him to earn the MC's trust. I really enjoy how the ML was written. I can only imagine that if there was someone really like him in those times, it'd be a 1 in a million chance. And for that person to be of nobility, let's bump that up to nigh impossible. Don't expect a fluff or romance. There's really not that much there or at least not your typical romance novel type. It's a slow fire that steadily grows and reads very naturally if a little slow. Still an enjoyable read overall. Well paced and no fillers. <<less

MTL'd to finish this!

*sigh* What I like about this CN is that altho FL was rebirthed she didn't somehow make use of future events to be OP. She uses her brain and her gift of rhetorics to pulverize her enemies to shocked silence. 🤭 ML ofc is 🥰. Very supportive of FL and a super ML!! No stalking and violent tendecies 😊

This author is really good at creating atmosphere and painting the historical scenes with her words. It was quite wordy but you'll get through (MTL's 80% readable).

In my unpopular opinion, I tear'd up at in MTL 😅:

Spoiler

When Huo Changyuan finally realized that he should have loved Cheng Yujin in their past life, so it wouldn't have ended in her death and they would have lived together. I'm just a s*cker for tragic romance. But ofc, CY said she would have lived a good life with HC, but not a happy one 🥺. I just want to make it clear that she belongs with Ninth uncle 🥰.

I like the MC! After reading some of the reviews I wasn't sure I would enjoy this novel but I do! Yes, the MC at times does some unscrupulous manipulative maneuvers but it is all for her to survive. She is a product of the harsh environment in which she grew up so it’s understandable she has to be ruthless at times but she doesn’t unnecessarily hurt or blame other people. She’s a fascinating character. She does talk a lot but having a glib tongue is one of the most... more>> effective tools she has in her arsenal so why not use it? I hope they translate more soon! <<less

I have like a love and dislike relationship with this novel. It's interesting but if you like,

    • Long and draggy sentences
    • Repeated lines, words and scenes from the memories
    • Inconsistent characteristics of MC
    • Selfish and yet understandable self loving MC
    • Too many details about other stuff
    • Unnecessary and nonsensical informations in paragraphs, like writing a college essay to get those words counted lol
    • Strong MC that thinks for herself before others (nicee)
    • MC with flawed characters, she can be a hypocrite but it's her way of surviving and definitely understandable and I like that part of her
Then, this novel is ok for you to read. This might sound like I'm criticizing the novel and yes I am but I won't deny that this novel is pretty good. It's just if you are OK with the stuff I have listed, then go for it. I'm not sure if I'll continue and give it a few more time but I feel like I'm losing my brain cell as I go farther into the chapters. MC's characters are very inconsistent in my opinion and it's disturbing my peace of reading lol. It's like she is written in certain way for convenience plot and makes me wonder if I'm still reading the same person. And some parts gets too draggy. I mean for the sake of informations, it's good and all but I have noticed that the author repeated things but in different wording. It seriously reminds me of me writing my college essay. I'd repeat something in my paragraph but it says the same thing from what I wrote before just to hit that word count.

Other than that, MC thinks ahead for herself. If you want someone with a flawed character who probably annoys the heck out of you, then this is for you. We usually aren't comfortable reading someone who is a definition of a human greed but hey this is still a good read. The translations made it so much better and readable and I'm thankful for that.

My actual feelings:

Spoiler

I'll be honest, as much as I want to continue and give this a chance but I don't feel comfortable reading MC having this predatory attitude. It might not look like to other readers but I feel like she's a little bit too predatory in my taste. I know why she goes after men to see who her potential husband is but the way she does it looks so predatory and I think because how manipulative she is. But I also think she just wanna make sure she get to have a better marriage life and that's valid but her attitude and her actions aren't it for me. Part of it because I know she's already a mind of an adult and she's going after someone who is young, who can be controlled and manipulate easily by her. If it were the ML who after female like that, especially MC's group of female friends, everyone would be disgusted by him by now. I think this is why ML is the best person with her. He could see her bs and not easily manipulated. I do hope he wouldn't get manipulated in the future though.

I really enjoyed reading this. The relationship between Chen Yujin and Li Chenjing was both refreshing and heartwarming. They were both lonely lost souls that completed each other. It was so wholesome to watch them confide in each other and their interactions always leave you with a fuzzy feeling.

Chen Yujin is a likable protagonist who is extremely intelligent and witty, but she's not way too powerful that it isn't believable. Watching her in the beginning pursuing different husbands to finding her man was really a journey. It makes you wish... more>> the best for the both of them <<less

The novel is like a breath of fresh air after all the awful powerful Mary Sues and supreme, cold, powerful male leads. Cheng Yujin knows what she wants and she schemes for it. Yet, the fact that she is so capable makes it clear that sometimes ignorance can be a blessing. She had no choice but to sharpen her mind to survive in the hellhole she calls her family. Anyone else would have collapsed from the pressure. I often feel for her when she gets cornered by her entire family,... more>> who always tells her to 'bear it for the greater good' for her entire life, and she never gets rewarded by her family. Not one ounce of love she received was unconditional, except for the ML's love. It is no wonder she took a while to accept his love, because she was very aware of her situation; since she is from a declining family, how can she possibly marry a crown prince? It's much more realistic to go for someone nearer to your social status but also slightly higher.

The male lead, Li Chengjing is not your typical cold ML. He is capable as any other ML and his thinking is actually unique compared to the male rivals in the novel. For one, he actually believes that men are responsible for what happens in the rear court, a place that men often just throw their women in and never think about what happens inside. Most men think that it's the women's job to handle... their other women. Cheng Yujin said it clearly in the novel, how is that fair that women's great deeds are recorded under a man, and men get all the glory when things are great while women get all the shame when things goes wrong? Li Chengjing would literally make the ML of The Dreamer in the Spring Boudoir ashamed, really. As a review of that novel mentioned, the ML of that novel literally lets his rear court be set on fire and never tries to extinguish it. Li Chengjing ensures none of that sh*t will happen when he is around and this is due to his personal experience. Also, living in the Cheng family has already shown him the shitshow of a rear court when managed poorly. He respects Cheng Yujin and never forces her to do anything against her will. He is patient and protective of her without being far too possessive.

The novel's short length works in its favour. Although it is great the political battles are not dragged out, I wished there was more of the main CP's time together. Cheng Yumo and Huo Changyuan gets screentime a little far more than I would have liked, but it makes a nice contrast to the main CP's development. I just wished that Cheng Yumo would have had matured, sadly she does not. It is fun to watch Cheng Yujin scheme and protect herself to the very best till the very end. This is a good novel where the main leads are nuanced, where they both empathize with each other on their loneliness caused by their personal circumstances.

About the male rivals: (spoilers ahead)

Spoiler

The other male rivals are kind of despicable except for Cheng Yujin's cousin and the official Li guy, tbh. First, Huo Changyuan is a fickle coward. He can't decide if he wants Cheng Yumo or Cheng Yujin, and it sickens me that he had second thoughts about his engagement by the time Cheng Yumo is wed to him. His second thoughts is partially due to him going back in time from the first timeline as well. He refuses to see the consequences of his own actions and he even caused Cheng Yumo to miscarry because he couldn't figure out how to handle his mother. This is a man who pushed his wife because he was fed up with her arguing with his mother, and Cheng Yumo miscarried as a result. Cheng Yujin dodged a bullet there, and it is no wonder she was so happy to escape the engagement. Dude, you made the bed, so now lie in it. He ends the novel completely depressed of what he had lost. A good dedicated wife that was Cheng Yujin. Even in the first timeline, he failed to protect her, and he still remains an idiot who cannot escape his mother's babying. Cheng Yumo was blind, but this side 'ship' is proof that sometimes love is not enough when you do not communicate.

Duke Cai is an as*hole through and through. He literally decides on Cheng Yujin being his second wife just because she was beautiful and that she happily fits the criteria that no other woman can possibly fulfill. What woman is willing to be a stepmother to a spoiled brat, get suppressed by his family and has literally nothing to gain from the marriage when said family says she should not desire fame or wealth. He thinks Cheng Yujin is being coy with him each time she rejects him, and he is complete scum. He coerces Cheng Yujin into a corner into marrying him by sending betrothal gifts, believing that her 'rightful place' is beneath him. Am not surprised that he is an example of a chauvinist living in those times. Cheng Yujin was right, what does his family have to offer her for a lifetime of hardwork? He was so 'shook' that a woman would dare reject him, NO.1 BEST GUY IN THE WORLD? Because of his meddling, Li Chengjing decided to reveal his true identity and marry Cheng Yujin. He disappears after they get married, so good riddance. Reading his monologue made my blood boil and pity Cheng Yujin as his offer to marry her forces her to her lowest point as the entire Cheng family tries to coerce her into marrying him as a second wife. This eventually led to her realising her increased dependence on Li Chengjing and slowly, she falls in love with him, so it's not that bad.

What I love about this novel is MC. She comes as strong, calm, rational and calculative person. I myself want to be like her.

She understands her circumstances and now how to use every resource to the best for her. Many novels show Fls to be op but I always felt how in a patriarchal world are those Fls allowed to do as they want. Even presently when equality is preached in many countries women doesn't have those equal rights..

This novel shows from MC prespective how women of that era makes... more>> calculations for the best outcome they could get.

MC in emotions is a very passive person as she herself felt neglect since she was a child so she never puts anyone in her heart and I love her firm determination for that. ML too has his bad past which could be considered as a reason for his initial liking for MC.

If MC existed in a free society I bet she would have been a successful person as she is very clear about her goals even ML love couldn't shake it at first.. Usually in most novels MCs with regular interactions fell in love with MLS but here Cheng yujin never got those feelings for Ml, she is a goal oriented person for her husband is a tool (well it's okay considering in that era there weren't much of feelings between couples) not part of her life (later though ML did win that place). I loved how ML despite his high position never forced MC for anything even loving him. He knows who he married and what type of person MC is. ML shows love isn't pushy, domineering rather respecting the person you love. He slowly does makes a place for him in MC heart. Even did that "talk" with MC on how he knows she considers a husband as a tool but as he fell in love so MC just needs to be by his side that's it, he doesn't wanna change her. There isn't passionate love but a gentle one which I love. Their love looks bland and plain but it's the most stable one. Both MC & ML never let their emotions guide them.

They understand each other circumstances and efforts and support each other. One of the funny things is how MC on knowing her marriage with ML first weighs pros and cons of marriage. Another funny incident how MC grandma believes MC could just send her husband to a concubine without any feelings.

MC can live a good life with any guy but only with ML she can live a happy life as only he understands her and can make a place for him in her small space. I guess it goes for ML too.

Another good thing. ML gives a proper 'ancestor law' to outsiders for not accepting concubines not just shallow reason of "love". Well he did told MC before marriage he wouldn't take concubines (for his love for MC and want of a peaceful loving family) which MC didnt believed much.

Just for MC I went through mtl but I admire ML too.

I enjoyed seeing MC calculate and scheme for best outcomes for her.

I have read author other novel (I'll be sister in law of ML) there I loved ML more and his healing process, ML of that novel looks more alive. In this novel I loved FL more , overall I liked this novel more maybe because here Lcj and Cyj love is more to my tastes (gentle and serene). <<less

Amazing. What a wonderful read. Both are perfectly rational. It was super satisfying to see them getting close gradually, especially once their feelings are realized. I loved it so much I finished it with mtl. I'll definitely come back to read again once it's finished.

The story is very light compared to other cnovels with this genre. And for those wondering about the age gap

The ML is not much older than her. It's only 5 years.

The MC may seem cold but I really admire her character. The change is gradual but it's very sweet that she'll learn to lean on him eventually. I really loved how the author wrote subtle mentions

Spoiler

How she never relied on anyone else but herself. Yet we'll find her unconsciously seeking for his help.

How she never ran to maintain her image. Yet we saw her ran to him.

She even got the strength during labor because she can't bear the thought of leaving him alone

damn. damn damn damn. I'm screwed. Where will I find a novel after this ? It raised the bar so high...

It's just seriously good. The way everything comes full circle, the protagonists character development, the sequence of events. The reincarnation doesn't give them OP prophecy talents, everything is just so well balanced and satisfying. There is just enough of political and personal interaction.

My sole complaint is that ... more>>
Spoiler

there were just a bit too much time spent on the sister. But its nothing excessive, it's just that I didn't really like her, and I'd glady trade those chapters for more Yujin + Chengjin time. They do offer another perspective to the story though.

[collapse]

I don't usually write reviews. In fact, I think this is my 2nd review in years of reading CN. But I can't get over it.
Spoiler

I think the novel has a lot more potential unexploited. The author could easily continue a second book that covers the reign of the couple after enthronement. I understand why it ended here though, but who doesn't want to see yujin disciplining her son ? Who doesn't want to see her daughter become badass?

[collapse]

haaaaa, I'm so depressed. If you read this, and you've found a novel that rivals this one, please DM me!! I'm desperate. The standards have gone through the roof with this and I get back down!!!

The novels I consider to be of GNU standard are :

  • malicious empress of military lineage
  • eight treasure trousseau
  • chongfei manual

Given how crappy her previous/alternate universe life was, you'd think this would be a revenge novel... but it's not. She finds out that she's the bad guy in her twin sister's romance story, and decides to do better for herself in this life. She doesn't kick off the change that creates a fork in the path, though; her sister does. (How was any of that her fault, by the way? She didn't deserve to be branded as a villainess/snake at all.)

A "few" bulleted thoughts to try to make this... more>> short:

  • MC has a great head on her shoulders; it's just so great. I love how practical and logical she is. She's pretty selfish... but why not? She'd get trampled on if she didn't stand up for herself. She schemes and bargains her way to a better future - with marriage being her only realistic way out of her family.
  • MC is not OP. She's good at whatever she sets her mind to doing, but that's because she works hard at and takes full advantage of the opportunities that have been afforded to her (ie, whatever resources her adoptive mother has made available to her).... and she does this so she can be marketable as a perfect wife / daughter-in-law.
  • The only "future"/"prophetic" knowledge she has really is her own alternate timeline married life... and a couple of brief snippets about her own family (ie, so-and-so appeared/disappeared/died around xxx time)
  • MC's sister has some SERIOUS inferiority complex about being second. Never mind that she has the full love of her family; all she sees is how much better her older sister has it, never the hardships behind it all. Honestly, part of this is probably her mother's fault for telling her that being cute is better than being smart/boring (and her mom always crying over how her nutrients got stolen in the womb by her older twin). She grates on me, but I kinda get where she's coming from. I just wish she'd actually do something to better herself.
  • Her family is crap, but she doesn't throw them away.
  • I feel like I'm kinda in sync with the ML's feelings every time they sink haha. The guy is pretty perfect. I just have a hard time imagining him being her 19-year-old uncle.
  • Mild spoiler (Chapter 13) :
    Spoiler

    What the hell, grandpa? Yujin was already 1 year old when you decided to name the ML Yuanjing. Why would she be violating the elder law of having her name too close to his? He might be older, but she technically had her name first. ;p

    [collapse]
A couple of minor gripes:
Spoiler
  • He's sad that he didn't know her birthday and that seemed like a big deal considering his anger.... but then they never celebrate it later? I mean... There's a scene one year later and I was expecting him to at least greet her, even if it's a few days late.
  • What happened to some people who were pretty important before? ie, what happened to Lin?? Also, what happened to all the stuff she was hiding to save for her dowry? I'm always curious about what happens to these villas, farmlands, and shops... Did she ever figure out the glaze shop? XD;

I read this because someone commented it's like rebirth of the malicious empress (which I absolutely love. If you haven't read that, you should definitely read it.).

I have read a lot of rebirth/transmigration stories and I hate it when the MC suddenly becomes OP and crushes everyone in their revenge. Here, the MC is very level-headed and she tries to live a better life this time with all the resources she has.

I also really like how the MC and ML are portrayed. They are envied by everyone because they seem... more>> to live a good life but they are actually struggling just to survive.

Spoiler

I think I love the MC because she is so strong. There is no one she can rely on but herself and everyone disdains her for being perfect and they all want her to fall from her pedestal. But she struggles against it and she tries to choose the perfect candidate to be her husband but the ML catcher her doing that. LOL.

She said this to the ML at some point: When fate never expects us to stand, we should strive more

So much pain in just that one sentence. She is so strong. &Lt;3

Also, it was so funny when she tried to eavesdrop on the ML and her grandfather's conversation but gets more than what she bargained for. Haha.

One of my fav!!! The romance is nice but not the main interest of the story.

It’s about a perfect daughter starting over again as the same perfect daughter.. Ha ha

But this time she gave up on the fiance.

And met the crown prince who is hiding as her illegitimate young uncle.

The MC, Cheng Yujin is the prim and proper baby girl of the family. In the first life, she married the marquise she saved in a snow storm while looking for her twin sister. It turned out that twin also did save the husband by giving him warmth using her body however was too coward to claim the credit. Only to tell the truth when MC was pregnant which resulted in ruining her perfect life. MC died from dystocia after giving birth since no one took care of her.

Despite being perfect, I feel that her life is pretty sad.

Spoiler

She was the biological daughter of the second household. MC who is healthy was given to raised by the first household. The princess (the adopted mother) didn’t love her and her real mother felt alienated. The sisters were jealous of each other, one for the extravagant life and one for the familial love.

[collapse]

I don’t really hate the twin. I even felt bad for her actually.

Spoiler

She was also reborn after living in her twin’s shadow for all her first lifetime. Even if she married the man she loved and became the mother of the heir. The husband and his family actually prefer her perfect sister. So she decided not to ruin her and her sister’s life by telling the truth early. Well MC regarded her ex as a scum already. After the ugly breakup, the weak twin tries to be as perfect as her sis. (Can’t blame her though but regardless of that she didn’t get the happy ending she wished for.)

'Greetings, Ninth Uncle' is a great novel! It's set in ancient times. MC is Cheng Yujin. ML is Cheng Yuanjin later known as the Crown Prince Li Chengjing. I MTL the novel after finding out it hasn't been completely translated.

Turns out not only the MC, Cheng Yujin reincarnated but also her sister. Also it seems that, MC thought she just dreamt of the future. MC's sister knows shes been reborn. Later, MC's ex fiancé also remembered the other life

The way they fall in love really makes sense even in MTL. MC is very goal oriented. She doesn't wait for things that happened previously happen, if she can prevent it.

This is not incest, which is plus 1000 points. They're not related at all.

There will be problems between the couple and against the couple but I think they dealt with it well.

Should definitely read this! It is a bit of a slow romance, albeit a hint of romance is shown from the start. It is subtle.

Definitely another 5 🌟 <<less
