Silent Reading

Description

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

Childhood, upbringing, family background, social relations, traumatic experiences…

We keep reviewing and seeking out the motives of criminals, exploring the subtlest emotions driving them. It’s not to put ourselves in their shoes and sympathize, or even forgive them; it’s not to find some reasons to exculpate their crimes; it’s not to kneel down before the so-called “complexity of human nature”; nor to introspect social conflicts, much less to alienate ourselves into monsters.

We just want to have a fair trial – for ourselves and for those who still have hope for the world.

A seme thug specialized in dealing with various kinds of disobedience vs. a cowardly and dissolute uke descended from a rich family

This novel takes a while to make sense, so please read at least 5 chapters before making up your mind about it. Good things are worth your time and patience XD

I know the summary above maketh no sense, so here's my amateur take on it with some very minor spoilers-

Spoiler

Basically, our story starts with a murder. A gruesome murder on the poorer part of the city evokes much interest and outrage from the netizens, forcing the Police to involve the MCs team. Now let's introduce the main cast *clap clap*

Luo Wenzhou (MC/seme) - police officer, hates Fei Du, very gay, in love with his straight best friend

Tao Ran - police officer, very poor, straight best friend mentioned above

Zhongyi- murder victim mentioned above

Fei Du (ML/uke) - rich young master, playboy, good at playing detective, bis*xual... maybe, also in love with Tao Ran, hates love rival Luo Wenzhou,

[collapse]

I find the MC and ML's relationship as love rivals very amusing... especially since the object of their affection has made it clear that both of them have a rat's chance in hell with him. I'm really looking forward to how they will go from can't stand being near 20 feet from each other to don't touch my boyfriend bitch.

One of the reasons I like about this novel is the fact that neither of the MCs are straight from the start. Most Bl stories start with one or both of the main characters being straight, then slowing becoming gay *insert air quotes* for each other. One of the things I hate most about BL is the "I'm straight but I'm gay only for you" trope *rolls eyes* which I'm glad this novel manages to avoid cuz I'm so sick of that crap.

I feel like many authors miss their mark when it comes to character-driven stories--this one doesn't. Priest is an excellent author and this was one of the top 3 books in 2016. There were a lot of small details I found when I was reading that I really found interesting and amusing.

Warning- I helped editing and QCing this novel so my opinion may be biased. <<less

When I read the first three chapters, I have a hard time following the story. It may be the translation, my perception in English or because I was really sleepy at the time.

I almost dropped the series since I couldn't really make connections about whats what happened in the story.

After reading chapter four however (with clear head), I begin to feeling engrossed by the story and became really interested with the characters, plot, and storytelling.

I don't really feeling like I 'like' the MC at first since he was being casted... more>> aside for a moment for other characters to make an appearance, but really, I really, really like him.

In my opinion this is a good crime-mystery novel and it's definitely worth your time to at least read the available chapters.

Since it was a little bit too early to have rating, I said I might give it 5✩ in the future when the stories has developed further.

Thanks for the translator for translating this series. <<less
