Wow, just wow. I expected some angst but this is more than angst. Rather than danmei, this is more fit to be a mental health psychology book. I'm so happy that I decided to read this. I thank the translator so much for uploading the tl all at once! You did a great job!

This story revolves around the mystery of an author's su*cide. And it affects the ppl around him. It covers depression and su*cides. So please, please mind the warning. It can be very triggering and real. Because this... more>> book is quite well represented in the area of suicidal thinking. As the plot goes, and the more you unravel the author's story, you'll be greeted with unreliable narrator and questionable logics. It'll confuse your mind of what you understand and find some twists. Just like opening an onion.

What I like the most is the characters. They feel so real. Everyone has their own stories and arguments. Each of them are correct depending on perspective. They are fragile yet also strong. Especially MC. Although from the beginning until the middle kinda feels a bit long, everything just went by so fast when you've reached the middle part.

Happy ending? Sad ending?


Happy ending guys <3

A lot of heavy topics. More than 1 important characters. It does revolve around an important death but ultimately has a good ending.

Overall, worth the short read but beware of the heavy topics (read the tags!).

That was such a roller coaster ride. No words can really explain how I feel right now. I was wondering about the heavy topics mentioned in the comments and after reading, I finally understood how the 'TAGS" were an important reminder or warning to the readers. The despair, sadness and words just hits home. My heart is so heavy right now, I wanted to cry but tears just won't flow. I feel so sorry for the writer. 😭

Very interesting and very well translated. Lots to digest but I am not sure if I can grasp the depth of the story. There are heavy topics and lots of pain and heartache so be prepared.
