  • All characters are made s*upid and only the MCs are ‘smart’
  • FL is so smart to other people but then turns idiot/bashful/weak/pitiful when talking to ML
  • ML portrayed as sweet, doting, in love with FL when in fact he is just overbearing with the FL with all plot armors and ML Halo. Acts portrayed as righteous and sweet but it’s actually idiotic
  • Cliches face slapping, cannon fodders, powerful villain family hindering the relationship of the MCs
  • FL is said to have IQ of 130 and genius but... where????
  • Bestfriend of the FL blindly shipping the MCs relationship when it’s obviously toxic because author said so
  • All tragedies happened to FL to make her pitiful
  • 20s something but acted and thinkslike a teen.
On the bright side, thedescriptions... more>> and way of writing is ok. And the book cover is beautiful.

Those novel with douchebag and tr*sh ML and idiot FL are better than this novel. At least the former, there is no need to hide those facts and everyone is s*upid than this novel with pretentious MCs.

so much dislike. <<less

This is the worst novel I have ever read

Due to FL not using her mind with 130 of iq. A person leaves you for seven years your father dies due to you being in a relationship with him and then he comes back you have a stable life with soon to be married and he tells your soon to be husband you are not a virg*n and your body already belongs to him he destroys your cuurent life and then forces you to marry him with the condition of saving your brothers life this kind of ML should be kicked in the balls and this kind of Female lead with little to no personality and say in her life should just smash her head on tofu to get some sense in her this is the novel in which FL is just plain and this story is really horible because she has no say so in her own life she made all the wrong decision.

DO NOT READ THIS BOOK I repeat DO NOT read this book

That is unless u r intrested in these things

A dual personality psychopath who loves the FL. Married a woman after that and killed her to frame the ML. Here's how :- cut off her limbs skinned her then tore her chest and then cut off her head and threw it here and there and packed the head in plastic

... more>> A maniac terrorist who drinks human blood after dissecting them (alive)

The good second lead who never got justice :- a rich famous kid from a good and loving family who fell for the FL (who was married) . Tried wooing her but never NEVER crossed the line. Stayed with her for 4 yrs when she was pregnant to the birth of the babies to being there father only to loose it when the ML comes back 4 yrs later like seriously. Then skip 2000 chs (I didn't read them) to the end where he sacrificed his life twice for her. The author kept him alive (in coma) only to be killed in the last chapter. That too by his own grandfather so that he could rest in peace. And still never got love from the FL. And never mentioned by her cause she feels guilty.

Oh and the author doesnt kill him till the last chapter...

The author introduces fantasy in this... the ML and the second ML and some other people get stuck in a dream ? and will die in real life if they die in the freaking DREAM. The second male lead goes into the dream a second time knowing that he ll be there alone in despair a nightmare forever just to save the FL (to be noted there were other ways)

Oh and how could I forget the FLs body gets possed by the MLs lover... who hits her children and etc.

All the deaths were depicted verrry clearly though out the series.

Sooo if u r a extreme sad*st or a masochist then feel free to read it. <<less

Don't listen to people who only read 23 chapters; there is 4000+ chapters in this novel for a reason, and everything gets much better after 30 chapters (please persevere!) (no spoiler review)

At first, like in real life, the novel throws us directly into a drama without the complete information, like a detective novel, and we are not sure who to believe and who is right/wrong. However, we learn more about each character as they learn about themselves and others, and the story unravels slowly as the chapter... more>> count goes up.

To be honest, even I was angry at the first 30 chapters, but it gets really good right after that, give it some time; you will learn to love the characters after you know their motivations and personalities better.

I read the whole 500 chapters in one shot after seeing an advertis**ent on Instagram and will never regret spending 2 days reading that, it's SOOO good. Also I recommend stopping after 624 and wait for official translations, I was left on a cliffhanger so I google translated a dozen chapters.

Overall: 9.7/10, 0.3 removed because the first 30 chapters could have been better. DEFINITELY worth reading for the rest though.
Read this for character evolution, a sweet story of pure love and mystery; there is a big detective theme in this novel, as well as hospital drama. <<less

To be honest im just dropping this here because qidian novels get a lot of justifiable crap ratings, but those are mostly because the company are dicks and not the fault of the story.

As for the book, what can I say? Seems like a fairly generic and long winded (my god that is a lot of chapters) classic story of an overbearing rich dude picking up his old flame. The twist is that his family did something to her while he was away and now she no longer has any... more>> good feelings for him. He comes across as a pretty contemptable dude in the first couple of chapters but from his POV there seems to be more to it than has been revealed.

This will probably be a pretty good story with lots of angst and green tea b*tches and white lotus flowers. Honestly the premise of a long seperation and old wounds reopening has been better done with books like Heyi Shengxiao Mo. However unlike in that book it looks like the female lead might be a bit of a badass.

Tentatively giving it four stars so it doesnt get bombed with negative reviews by people who dont read it.

Might update this review in like 2000 chapters when the story is halfway through. That is a ridiculous amount of chapters but they are fairly short.

If you like overbearing CEOs this will probably be a decent time killer. <<less

I read this novel’s description and wanted to read this book. I didn't read any reviews before starting reading this novel because I wanted to read it without any bias. When I first started reading this novel I felt it was okay (till 5- 10 chapters) and I also thought that the very first cannon fodder was very dumb. Later the story slowly started to get absurd, but I decided to dismiss it and still tried to read it but after a while, I just couldn’t take it (even tried... more>> skipping few chaps to know the plot). The story was like bullshitttttt. The story was very exaggerating. The translation was good and author’s writing stryle is good. But so what?? When the story is ntg but shit. Reading this gives you nothing but a headache. This novel is like 4000 chapters. A normal person definitely couldn’t complete reading this whole novel. Reading this novel is full of time waste. Definetely would not even consider recomending.

i think you should read the review of @xchronicles <<less

This is the worst Novel I have ever read.

At the beginning it was really really good but than author decides to favour immoral twisted character Su yu. Many might say Su yu is a good guy. I would say, you got to go and check your moral character.

First Su yu challenges qin chu he is going to fight for huo Mian fair and square. I say he is got sh*t for his brain. Why? Dude she is qin chu's wife. What fair and square you are Just f*cked Up in... more>> your head trying to make a move on someone else's wife. Put your self in qin chu's shoes and think if you would appreciate it.

Second he is always doing unnecessary stuff to get huo Mian's attaintion. Things like that is not called pursuing for your love when the other party is already happily married. That is called stalking and harrassment. Get it right.

Third Su yu saves huo Mian from prison with his grandfather's help putting a gun in his temple. Dude no one asked him to even without Su yu, Rick and Lu Yan had planed to break her out of prison. So no thankyou there. If not for this unnecessary action. Things would have turned out differently.

Lu Yan would have given her life to save her sister and she is competent. It's just police department that is guarding huo mian. She could have brought her. With her Mian would have emotional support from her sister. She would not have tried to commit sucide and gone to depression. She would have met Chu before she gave birth to there twin's. They could have pulled through this hard time with her family and husband together. Qin Chu wouldn't have suffered as much. They wouldn't have been separated for 4 years. That would have been sweet. She wouldn't have owned the feeling of gratitude towards Su yu and his family.

If Rick succeeded in saving huo Mian she would have been taken to America under Rick's protection. She would have been able to meet win Chu sooner again and they could have helped each other through this tough time together again. They wouldn't have separated for 4 years and feel guilt of gratitude towards Su yu and his family. Why? Because Rick is qin chu's friend. Bro who would do anything for each other.

So what does it say for Su yu's impulseve behaviour it led the married couple to be seperated for 4 years depriving Qin Chu of feeling and going through fatherhood and huo Mian Missing to death for her beloved husband.

Why couldn't Rick take away huo Mian after wards because she was placed in military facility which became the hardest part for him to save after Su yu took action.

Su yu must be blamed for their separation and for depriving their married couple from enjoying their first pregnancy. Why? Just because he had to stick his nose where it doesn't belong.

Now you may ask why did qin Chu not return to huo Mian and his daughters for 4 years? Author doesn't give any explanation. Let me give you a logical explanation. Since qin Chu hurts his leg while escaping assaination. He doesn't have mobility and is on wheel chair and crutches. He has always been under sevilance and all phone has been monitored. He is not worried about huo siquie but is more worried about Ian the terrorist. His enemy is strong and ruthless but he is just a business man and now cripple. So he bites the Bullet and decides to stay under the radar. While keeping surveillance to his wife and daughters he goes under the knife again again to get better. While still crippled he trains himself and starts building his group of professional worries and snipers. So he can keep his wife and family safe. He has a very heavy responsibility on his shoulders and very slim chances of survival.

There is a big possibility his wife might marry someone else but still riddled with worry, anxiety, desire, desperation he forces himself to build his army so he can go back to his wife and children to protect them and keep them safe.

Don't make a mistake into thinking that he is a coward and hiding to save himself. He is someone who stabbed himself in the heart to protect his wife. He is not afraid of death. He is afraid of his wife being hurt that's why he only shows up after 4 years when he is confident that he can protect his wife and daughters. Do you think he would have no surveillance over his wife. Remember It is hard and painful to lose something you already have than loseing something you never had.

Fourth he is always acting miserable Infront of huo Mian saying loving her is his problem he won't and is not gonna cause trouble to her. Now him always being around her is itself a problem which is always makeing her feel guilty and awkward. If he was to care for her he should have stepped out of the way go for a world tour try to overcome from his fantasy love. Live and let live.

Fifth Su yu character it self is not an upright character. How? He mistreats women beating women f*cking his employees stepping on other people's feelings and rejecting them when he is not even married. How do you expect huo Mian to accept him when she is happily married with qin chu. Enjoining his drink while ling Ling was drugged and was about to be r*ped on the floor. Which by the way shows that something like that has happened before and he is ok with it. Shows his character.

Sixth author has emphasized that he went to save huo Mian in the dreams for the second time for the price of perishing. Forget about other people If I remember correctly his two best buddies were among the people that was trapped so why is huo Mian being blamed for. And another thing dream started with su yu being captured so pulling everyone into dream seems to be triggered by Su yu. Plus when Su yu was rescued by huo Mian and got into the blast Mrs Su seems to be one of the people in there very convinently she seems to be out of second dream. Which is Dr Lin's under water palace. Well if you argue that Mrs Su was not pulled because Mrs Su yu didn't go to under water palace than for your kind information besides anxin and qin Chu should be the only ones being pulled but of course everyone one is pulled but Mrs Su and her family is exempted because author should give Su yu credit for being selfless. Remember qin Chu saved Su yu twice in that dream which means he would have died twice. Once in hospital with brain surgery. Second from the arrow's. So who saved who? Huo Mian saved him from Leila while pregnant who was on the verge of death. Even huo sequie save him while protecting huo mian.

Pulling everyone into the dream in itself was Su yu's fault. No one should feel pity since he was the one to drag huo Mian while pregnant her husband and all his friends into the dream. So all the blame falls on him in the first place.

No, you have a different opinion and say huo Mian is to be blamed for the cause. Than you are wrong. It should be huo Mian's father who is the cause of all this ordeals. Now because professor is protecting mass distructing weapon from falling into evil peoples hand. This cause is humble and heroic, even if you die. You should be honoured and proud since you are contributing to protect the world. That involves your friends and families. Everyone is involved when whole world is involved.

By the way twins seem to end up with jades which was with huo Mian and Lu Yan. There was never any hand overs for jade necklace. By the way this is the necklace that prevents twins from being dragged into dream. And still retains there memory of Su yu. Truely absurd. Chu seems to be the most sensitive one when it comes to finding out original and fake why was it that Dumbo Su yu found out there is a problem here. Makes me wonder.

What a load of bullsh*t marrying huo Mian in parallel world.

Author is just satisfying his/her own selfish desire.

They should give huo siquie a parallel World story too since he is the one who hides huo Mian's true identity and protected her for such a long time. He even died protecting her.

Since dream project was devised by Chinese military personnel. Su yu's grand father has a moral obligation for what took place in dream. No one should blame huo Mian.

I believe nothing would have happened to anyone even if dreamers were not killed. Think, what was the goal for all this drama. It was to get professor to hand over his secret. Would they kill him? Bullshit. They would have backed off dream for sure from dream project. 100%.

This novel could have been such a brilliant novel. Just because author decided to give attention to wrong character this Novel is ruined.i am a novel fanatic and it left me with Such a bad taste that I am absolutely pissed even after I finished reading this novel after more than a month.

There are thousands of things that could have been right and perfect but author choose to go wrong. Truely disappointing.

There was such a great main characters qin Chu and huo Mian. Qin Chu who is wholly devoted to huo Mian his whole life towards Mian who never ever had any relationship with any other females. Who worked really hard to protect Mian from everyone evil and everything evil and tried to fulfill all of Mian's dream and desires is left with Mian who is not 100% wholly sure of her heart with heart that seems to be missing something important in her heart. Even though they marry at the end it's a pity marriage without authentic heart with bitter heart.

He deserves better treatment than this. Loads of bullsh*t is added just to support and give sympathy to Su yu like talisman, chanting, parallel world.

Why ask s*upid question if huo Mian ever loved Su yu even a little. Well I will tell you she loves Su yu as a friend who is like a family. If you start falling in love and marrying everyone who comes barging into your life on there own and help you with whatever means. You would end up loveing and

marrying more than dozen. Seriously.

Where did Ian and doomsday go who was after huo Mian after dream incident. They just dissapered. Shows they are really weak group of people. Why build their notorious image if it doesn't live up to it. Very very twisted story just to fulfill author's selfish desire to promote character with immoral obsession and turn into main character. Such a pity leaves me with a big disappointment.

Master five is powerful enough to send him into parallel world I wonder how he didn't have power to save Su yu in this world given even character's without super natural power is able to kill dreamer's in this novel.

And why did Su yu not go to five masters elder sister for help and get more talisman so he can give it to others and let them escape dreamland.

why? Because Su yu is a dumbass and s*upid brainless dickhead. Instead of getting lawyers to write his will he should have utilised his time wisely.

This encourages negative morality. Very wrong. They should come up with some sequalle turning everything into third dream Chu is having and pull everyone out of dreams and save everyone and give justice to qin Chu and Mian love life.

If author can't think of anything than I can tell you let Su yu end up with a baby boy 3/4 years older than twins in his front door saying he is Su yu son from some drunk sleeping with one night stand.

This has left me with such negative felling that I absolutely hate it.

Justlook at the introduction of novel. Little bit of back story of their past story Mr qin wife spoiler s*ave to their daughters. Huo composed sharp tongued and smart. Story should be revolving around these two and should be high lighting their love journey not go off the grit and build and portray some unneeded character who takes up more than 60% of novel seriously. Disappointed very very very disappointed. <<less

I read till 2000 something and I am now asking myself how I got through. Seriously the story is just torture for the readers and the second male lead. The ML and FL have no sense of danger. It's like they are living in their own world and when something happens they surprised as though they didn't see it coming. I mean the most pitiful is the second male lead. I usually always support the main couple but this the first time I had major second male lead syndrome. In... more>> fact the main couple don't deserve to be the main couple they are annoying. Su yu and another woman should be the main leads. Anyways read it if you are ready to break your phone or if you have great patience or nothing better to do. Seriously I don't recommend this novel. Of the 2000 something chapters that I read, 1500 chapters were about the plainness but beauty and smartness of the FL and how perfect of a couple the main leads were. It is a novel with very little substance and a lot of fillers. <<less

Ahh this one is hard to rate. I have second ML symptoms. I don't like the ML one bit, his a f*cking idiot, worthless, depressingly inactive, a log of wood with money would be just as good and not hurt the FL at every bloody turn, Leave for 7 years, leaves again for 4 years with some reason taken out of the authors ass.
His 1 dimensional with a obsessions, his about the same as the wannabe brother of the FL, but that guy at least tells the world is obsessed and mentally unstable and IS ruthless. The ML is not ruthless enough, so many problems could have been avoided if he grew some balls. The FL.. ahhh greatest doctor on earth, master poisoner, master pianist, can read everything from the face of people, survival specialist, when others take 10 years to learn it she takes 5 days and there's more.
I did liked her sister and the sisters lover and some other characters. The Novel is missing one very important Tag SF. I think around cap. 2K it went into full blown SF, that was a major letdown.
Lets not forget the Kids, 3 years old smarter and more eloquent as full grown ups.. yeah... Fantasy content there.

If you looking for a down to earth novel stay very far away from this. Its not bad but, but I feel like I got betrayed by all the SF / Fantasy / out of world content just so that the author can milk the story more.

This novel is good if u like the ceo-spoiling his lady type light novels. So far I really it, the ML is kinda douchey in the beginning (not his fault he's obsessed with his future missus). He's kinda cute sometimes. As for the female lead I love how sharp her tongued she is.I would definitely recommend it.

I had read this when this novel still ongoing, but dropped it halfway and I forgot why.

Then I re-read it again. At the beginning of the novel plot, I really like this kind of plot even though maybe for some people it's kind of cliche, but the plot is just right for me. There's just some misunderstanding at the beginning because of ML and FL parent, but at the beginning I believe the story or plot will improve because they know each other well. FL and ML didn't hate each... more>> other, and understand about each characteristic very well. And, it's challenge for ML and FL. And at some point

I love how Qin Chu really devoted with FL (Huo Mian) from the beginning. He really care and prioritize FL all the time.


It's just the plot sucks. Till Su Yu came and I read other's review, I think I'm gonna drop this novel again : (I really root for FL and ML together. But... Just why?

Why Su Yu had to come challenge the ML when both FL and ML were legally married? Yeah I know that he's design like that by the author.


Maybe gonna edit the review if I read more chapter again <<less

FL is a pathological liar. She keeps lying and hiding things from her husband, which I find pathetic.

She has an IQ of 130, but she never really solved any problem by herself at all. Everytime was solved by her husband, that cleaned up her mess.

The characters are overdramatic and brainless.
