Honestly, I think all the characters in here are rather 'weak', except for the cousin antagonist.

Our MC puts up with every wrong thing done against her she's does everything with quiet acceptance, and ML isn't very good at coming to her rescue. She is left to fend for herself but her docile nature just leaves her fending off every attack, or accepting punishment to avoid conflict, not actually retaliating. Though I do think this makes ML more realistic since you can clearly see that his life is very separated from hers and does not meddle much with inner court affairs. ML isn't likeable and you do feel a huge sense of pity for MC. It isn't the instant love at first sight, which is why until like 70 chapters in, he's still a fool for the cousin antagonist. He also isn't a man of his word and you really do see how imperfect he is. Low-key frustrating but I understand why author wrote him. I personally don't think the relationship is super 'fluffy', just 'meh', partly due to the MCs not being likeable. Better off reading similar world novels: ROTMEOML, DCF, TMR, etc, for the hnnnngh dose. The side characters thoughhhh, imo are just meaningless. They're literally a bunch of useless annoying fodder. Also think it would have been better without so much filler - I can hardly follow the plot of the novel ojz.

As for the cousin, she will annoy you to death with her schemes. LOL. She literally is extremelyyyyy unlikeable, and the typical narcissistic fodder b*tch who thinks the world revolves around her. However despite this, I do find her character a contrast against all the other characters (except for the MC's second-sister-in-law who's refreshingly strong willed and outspoken). As you read it, you really begin to realise how insecure she is because of all her scheming and interactions with ML and her servant (when she constantly frets over what the ML is doing and why he is losing interest in her). She doesn't trust in ML, which draws him away from her to our MC. It's ironic how the person ML trusted the most, betrayed him, and the person who trusted him the most, he betrayed. I liked this part about the story since there's so many flaws in everyone. Even though they both proclaimed mutual love, I get a feeling that the cousin never really loved ML. She feared him being taken away from her because that meant her stability within the household would falter and she strongly believes that everything belongs to her - the position to manage the household - hence why she bullies MC and was successful in the past life, trying to attain whatever possible means of power a woman of that time would be able to attain in a male-dominated era. She's the only 'strong' character in the main household, her tongue is really vicious and has a way with sweet words. She knows how to play her pity cards, is proactive and if she sees potential in something, she will do whatever to see it happen - often successfully. If she weren't following the antagonist route, I believe she would be really successful as one of those smart-strong-headed-rise-to-power MCs.

Edit: Yeet, okay, finished the raws. Opinion still holds - book tried to create some fluffy moments (kinda like from DCF but I didn't really feel it), still bland.

Good read. Slow paced and more realistic (😂) than many I’ve read. She’s sensible and looking out for herself, staying true to character, rather than seeking revenge. I like to watch romance grow rather than have it strike like lightning. I enjoy watching characters gain positive traits rather than remain stagnant.

I enjoyed it. It's not like the main character is OP or knows everything. The knowledge she gained from her first life is very lacking and hence makes it seem much more realistic. There's also no revenge plot. I found the main character very likeable, she feels like a real person rather than a 2 D character. Her husband doesn't seem like a bad person yet, but just way too spoiled by his environment so he seems very self centred but he is trying his best to help make her... more>> life more comfortable, so I am not disliking him for now. Oh the cousin is an evil witch lol 😂 hate those sort of complicated people with hidden schemes, I really wish she would trip on her own schemes sigh hope our heroine can survive her evil plots. And yes the other side characters are also enjoyable as they seem realistic. Hopefully the quality of the novel or translation wouldn't suddenly drop. Thanks for the hard work of the translator team. <<less

It has a slow release on top with slow pace, so when I read the latest release I just like who is this person again? I think it's better to hide the series from your main reading list for meantime.

MC is a bland character is her past life, after being abandoned, accused, she still think her husband is pretty, and I do feel she still have feeling for the hubby. The story goes like she is suggesting to the hubby to have fake marriage for 1 year before divorcing her,... more>> and to keep the appearance she asked her hubby to marry his childhood sweetheart after they were divorced. And I was like really? For keep face? Isn't getting divorce as a woman is like dragging your face to mud back and forth?

Then the childhood sweetheart that is portrayed as gentle-ish woman show her fang to the aunt, which not harming MC whatsoever, I feel like shaking her and ask if her character is set properly or not. This was the first time I feel rage for the antagonist to not to hurt MC. Figures I'm too accustomed by too capable MC like the princess wei yang, phoenix ninth heaven, etc.

But I have faith with second chance genre and the fact that it only has 334 chapter ^^ <<less

I am quite fond of these ancient rebirth novels. However they do tend to often be carbon copies of each other a lot of the time.

In that regard, Rebirth of an Abandoned Woman has a few things to make it stand out from the rest of the crowd.

The first part might seem minor, but I do enjoy that this for once not set in either an Emperor's or (Crown) Prince's harem, but instead in a well-off (although an extremely well-off one at that) family. It means that there is very... more>> little, so far, outside politicking going on and most of the navigation of plots is within the family itself, rather than also suddenly focusing on the traditional battle for who becomes the next emperor.

The second part is that the MC is not a complete psychopath that has perfect memory of every single thing that happened from she married in her previous life, up to her death and their ploys are always perfect. Don't get me wrong, I love those stories as well. However, I do like that this one is a lot more relaxed in that regard. Our MC sets out early to not stir up too much trouble, and if some does come to find her to (as much as possible) avoid it and not retaliate since she knows that she is very much in a situation where the people with power (her husband, her mother-in-law, and her cousin-in-law to begin with) will never take her side.

And thirdly, shockingly, not all the other women (minus maybe one or two personal servants) are poisonous snakes waiting in the grass to strike. At least so far. Admittedly that part might change down the road for all I know, though usually if there was someone "loyal" that was to betray the MC we'd have already seen at least a few signs here and there by now I'd hope.

Otherwise, it develops along the lines you'd expect.

Spoiler

A disinterested husband that, due to her unique personality and how she holds herself, becomes intrigued and interested by her and comes to see the faults and flaws in the antagonists over time. A mother-in-law that has to be pampered and handled like a rare antique so as to not explode right in the MC's face. She is not as aggressively awful to the female lead as in a lot of other similar stories, but she doesn't exactly treat her well and expects a lot out of her for no reward and instead treats the main antagonist, the cousin-in-law, like she is the real wife as long as she can get away with it. An antagonist that will stop at nothing to become the main wife, though it is abundantly clear that it is not for some sense of love she has towards the male lead, however his feelings towards the antagonist-cousin seems to be quite genuine. The author does manage to add in some sympathy for the antagonist as well, she hasn't had the best life, her one way out of her dreary life with a gambling-addicted father is to become a member of her cousin's harem. Especially as she is stuck in an awful spot once her father finally does pass, because of the archaic ritual of having to observe filial piety towards her deadbeat dad for 3 years before marrying. Naturally, after having seen first-hand how his feelings towards the MC has changed over the course of the story so far, she fears that eventually he will forget her completely in those three years. And thus has little other choice than to become his concubine, rather than his wife, upsetting the male lead who realizes that maybe she doesn't really love him like he does her. I honestly feel like it would be very interesting to read the story as seen from the cousin's perspective as well, because she might be the most fleshed out character of the entire story.

I will give bonus points to the author for having at least some of her family genuinely care for her, since this is a rarity in these types of novels. I'm hoping we get to see more of her sister-in-law and youngest brother as the story moves on.

[collapse]

Overall the only "major" complaint I have so far is that we are sadly "only" getting about one chapter a week, which means it'll still be a long while until the story is completed.

Tl;dr: If you aren't into a more down-to-earth protagonist in a rebirth series that aren't just there to scheme and murder everyone who wronged them, this is not for you. However if you, like me, need a break from those rebirth novels then this might be worth your time at least checking out. So far, this is a solid 4.5/5 for me, rounded up to a 5 for now. <<less

The more I read this novel, why do I find the MC more annoying? There should be a limit of being passive duuuh...

I kind of Like the ML because I can see where he comes from, and how he acts is believable, considering his situation...

And the story is somehow being dragged out by the author...

ugh!!

I really love this novel! The MC is really likeable. She is gentle and smart, she just focuses on avoiding disasters in her second life, instead of spending her time getting revenge.

At the beginning the ML seems like a heartless idiot, but it turns out he is quite decent. He was just clueless about other's manipulations in the past. Thankfully he realizes the truth and changed into a great guy.

Slow moving but very expressive - you get points of view from many characters - not just the MC and her bestie. At this point, a second lead is shimmering on the far horizon and he can't get there quick enough.

Good so far, but doesn't have much flavor as of now.

UPDATE:

The main guys is just not my taste.... he seems pretty weak and doesn't have much of a ML's aura like other novels. But for some reason I really like how the ML of this novel feels, cause it gives a more realistic feel.

Even though there are only a few chapters, this novel seems really promising! The mc's seem sensible and likable. I'm looking forward to how they interact to see if they can change the past.

It's one of my favorites! The writing, the action, the pace of the story and the roundness and realism of the characters are pretty good.

If there's one thing I can't understand is how in the beginning ML and his family can't see the 2nd female lead's vile character. And, even so, they're too indulgent of her.

Also, when I think that the male lead was so indifferent and cruel to her in her previous lifetime that he didn't even call a doctor for her and she died all by herself -... more>> it leaves a sour taste in my mouth. <<less
