The Villain’s Mother

Description

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

Upon waking up, Ruan Xia had transmigrated into a webnovel that she had stayed up all night to finish reading. She had become the villain’s mother.

In the novel, after the death of her first husband, the original owner of the body had hooked up with a Mr. Perfect at the fastest possible speed. Worried and discontent that her son from her first marriage would become a burden on her, she heartlessly abandoned her son.

Having once held the best quality script and informed of future events, Ruan Xia looked at her still alive first husband as well as her future villain son. She sighed. She wanted to apply for a different script!

This is a predictable novel but you still anticipate the next thing that is going to happen.

The one thing I was dissatisfied with was the lack of romance. There are small hints of it but that might as well be just 'getting along'. Also the ending was really abrupt.

Currently on latest ch (english trans) but I have read the raws. This is my favorite transmigration romance, family life, slice of life story so far. I like that the FL and ML are rational. I can relate to them for once so I really enjoyed reading this. Regarding their relationship, the way it would go was predictable but that's because of the way the characters are. They're both realists so it's easy to predict their actions. There are no misunderstandings and no repeat scenes of face slapping the white... more>> lotuses or scummy family. I like that the villains or rivals don't have too much screen time and disappear after they have served their purpose. I also like that the love rivals are not irredeemable bastards/b*tches. They may be annoying and hateful in the story but once justice is served, at least they can still see reason and realize their wrong actions. I do agree with some readers that the stort is a bit bland. No heartbreak, no crying scenes, not even a thrilling part. As I said, the story is predictable but enjoyable nontheless. <<less

Honestly, these kinds of novel are good for binge reading when you are looking for something light-hearted. But I truly do not like how fuyuneko splits the chapters. Can't they just title it 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 2.1, 2.2. and so on?

Even with split translation, I expect it to be split in 2 chapters for some. But a lot of them are split in 3 ways. It is kinda disappointing since you see 100+ chapters translated but in reality they are only around 30-40 in raws.... : (

Pretty much your typical transmigration novel. Except that the male lead here is peculiar, in that, he is actually a rational human being with reasonable emotional responses. I kept c*cking my head to the side in surprise whenever he would reply to the FL in a mature and courteous manner, (making me melt in the process) wondering to myself why'd he go off script, didn't he know he's supposed to either :

1. Stay mute

2. Threaten fl

... more>> 3. Storm off

4. Sexually harrasse fl

5. Consciously misunderstand fl

But he does none of that, they actually act and behave like grown ass adults trying to work things out for their kid and I never wanted a man to get his happy ending more!! <<less

Very enjoyable read.

I love how calmly the couple faces their challenges. Instead of big drama from every small interaction, they were chill and, could you imagine that, they talked. Yes. Instead of assuming the worst of each other, they actually trusted each other and then when facing a problem, they talked calmly and solved it, unlike most novels where they'd just be mad and drag the simple misunderstanding forever.

Just freaking love when characters act like sensible human beings.

If I had to nitpick about the novel,... more>> it would be that the characters were quite bland. At start I didn't really notice, but the closer to the endi realise that, yes, the main characters are realistic, but both didn't really have anything unique about them. Another thing is that the child is way too smart for a 4 year old. Some times he acts like an adult, but another time he's more childish than a normal child his age. But well, both these things didn't really bother me, it was still a very good read.

If you like romance genre, definitely recommend reading this. <<less

This story is so good. Can I just say I love the ML so much. No r49e, patience and communication. The romance is steady and the couple's feelings for each other are well and truly earned.

Baby ofcourse is very cute and lovable. I loved that he was smart but not some 400IQ bullsh*t mutant.

This novel was more satisfying than 3000+ epics.

It was good at first. The premise was promising. The thing that got me this far was that the couple was distant and ignored each other. I'm into antagonistic stuff. Anyways the 1 thing that cut off my amusement was the son. Having a smart child is cool. But... This kid is so fake. Like.. Imagine the Twitter photo or a Facebook post of a parent having a conversation with their kids and the kids says something an adult would say... Of course it's fake. Kids, even the smartest or... more>> most clever, would not say the shxt that these kids say. No kids talk about divorce casually like it's their favorite toy. <<less

The other reviews mostly covered this, but I don't fully agree that it was entirely realistic or boring. Yes, it doesn't conform to tropes and takes a more realistic approach. Yes, its avoidance of tropes also removes most melodrama. However, this is not like reading a biography by any means.

This is still a light novel and even an antagonist appears at some point. I think some of the 'realism' even added comedic elements. For example, the MC's failed attempts at tricking the child into believing her. The back and forths... more>> were super cute and reminded me of dealing with actual children. The ML also seemed to pick up this habit of trying to trick the child from the FL which was quite cute for a straight laced man to attempt.

I think the turning point for both parents was when they starting working together due to their increasing awareness of the fact that they wouldn't be able to hide the status of their household from the child much longer. My current relationship developed from cooperation (although not same situation) to friendship and then to romance, so I get that.

Another boon is that the motivations of characters are often clear cut. Usually they are hinted at before being revealed, but there is no sudden reversals of character and you can always understand early actions of a character in the B plot once their motivation is revealed in the main plot. <<less

A very slice of life, heartwarming story, where MC and ML actually talk to each other and cause no needless misunderstandings. MC's feelings are portrayed very realistically - she doesn't become the ideal mother and wife as soon as she transmigrated, and took her time to get used to the new life. ML's initially too uninterested in personal life, and doesn't care that he basically lives with a stranger, but with the transmigrated MC, he starts paying attention to his son's mother and then to his wife. There is no... more>> sudden overflowing of emotions, but a gradual shift from plastic marriage to a real marriage. The little guy is cute and provides some comedy, though too smart/adult at times - a common thing for C-novels. <<less

Have been reading it raw and I really enjoyed it. This novel is probably not for those readers who wanted an overbearing CEO nor cheesy romance.

It might be dull and boring for some but it's exactly within my taste.

... more>>
Spoiler

Before the transmigration of the protagonist, the original's relationship with her husband (male lead) is in name only. She married and got pregnant with the male lead just so she could have a human cash machine. She doesn't care about her child nor her family.

And after the female lead took over she decided to maintain the status quo with her husband. Neither approaching nor avoiding. Not hold or cold and so does the male lead. They treated each other as dormmates. OF COURSE THEY WILL WARM UP TO EACH OTHER GRADUALLY.

In regards to her child and her family, she started to improve her relationship with them

The story itself can only be described as an okay read, it's not overly fluffy & romantic, but at the same time it's not angsty/depressing either. The saving grace of this novel and my reason for not dropping it was the FL's son, he was a little cutie and the sole reason that there was ANY development between the leads! Other than that though, this story was rather underwhelming with not much plot to keep you interested. I did end up completing it so it wasn't a major snoozefest, but... more>> I wouldn't necessarily recommend this novel. <<less

The epitome of slice-of-life. This is certainly not a romance story as there was barely any romance, not until the last few chapters and even that was pretty bland. Won't ever recommend this to anyone looking for romance.

Truly related MC and truly logical ML. No instant mother-child bond. No instant love. Which are common sense but rarely found in these type of novels but it is inside here. I enjoyed it.

It's good, but truthfully.. Boring.

No drama, no face slap, no feelings, no ambitions, no talents, nothing. I didn't know why I've read this far either.

I didn't laugh cause the story was so flat, didn't go awww cause there's no romance so far, didn't go mad cause there's no love rival (I mean there's one or two but did they count if the other person didn't even saw them in their eyes?), just read this story with a straight face.

The translation was good. The rating was for them. But I still... more>> didn't get it. What was the porpose of this novel? To saw how a beautiful, rich, aloof, jobless person lived by leeching of her super patient, wealthy not-husband? I wanted to see how they fall in love, but even then this novel will still be a bore. <<less

This is a very simple and light read. Main focus is around the development of the relationship between the FL with her family (ML and son). I particularly like how both parties are very calm and logical, so misunderstandings either don't occur, or are resolved immediately. There is not extreme feelings, nor does it evoke extreme feelings in the readers. However, it does give a very heartwarming feel.

This story isn't bad, to be honest, and the translator did a great job. It's just that the story and the characters are bland. The thing is, people love the trope and genre the story follows, so it's easy for people to get into it, the challenge this story fails to overcome is how to make people stay. That is to say, other than the trope and genre itself, the story isn't very compelling and makes it difficult for readers to care.

The MC who is supposed to carry the story... more>> is an empty sheet. There's always a hint of her interesting and pragmatic personality, but it just doesn't push through her actions and is so subtle it hurts. She's supposed to be aloof and quite the modern woman and there's so much potential there but it felt like the writer was hesitating or just was not able to show that aspect of her in her actions as MC is just not consistent with her thing.

There's also potential with ML but jezuz christ he has the presence of a day old dust and it's so difficult to see where MC and ML would fit with each other. They seem too similar it's like having to marry yourself. It's like seeing someone play two people with slight past differences who are simply okay with not talking. Sure, comfortable silence is nice, but there's only so much one can take of it without it becoming a denial of each other's existence. <<less

I like how the romance happened naturally and slowly. It reminded me of Lin Yiyi and Lu Xun from the villain and the cannon fodder's mother. I liked how the FL didn't rush to assume the identity of being a mom and a wife, and instead enjoyed her luxurious married life with an instant child. The ML was so lovaaaable like gaaahd! You can't help but cheer for him and his earnest struggle in making his family with Ruan Xia and Little Wang work. Even though he was the typical... more>> aloof and overbearing CEO, he didn't allow himself to be ambiguous even with a bad marital relationship at the start with the FL, and he always treated the FL with respect and tolerance even though the origRuan Xia was a shitty mother.

Spoiler

It was just a bit offputting at how their child could act so mature and childish at some times. Though I guess he was meant to be the villain in the original novel and his abilities should've been on par with the novel's ML. Anyway, I like the ending where the FL decided not to have a second child since she didn't want her feelings towards Little Wang to change if she gives birth to her own child. After all, she know that she really isn't the child's mother, though she is occupying the body of the biological mother.

[collapse]

Anyways, it's a good, lighthearted story that doesn't have much drama. I only gave 4 stars because I didn't feel much emotions while reading this novel. You could say that it's a bit dull? Still, it's enjoyable since I'm a sucker for child-raising novels lol <<less

72 chapters and basically nothing happened.

The MC is a very realistic person, which is a good thing, but she's... to much. It's almost as she's not involved at all.

In 72 chapters MC and ML rarely spoke and when they did it was something about their child or practical stuff.

No chemistry, no feelings, nothing. For 72 chapters.

The translation is good, but the novel is too boring, I don't understand why the rating is so high tbh

Best of the best of the best.

I don't really like reading family novels. But I was bored because of quarantine so I decided to read this novel.

It turns out. It was much better than I expected. The characters are easily like and their chemistry is awkward but slow.

I think this well be the next new novel I will be keeping tabs.

The premise isn't bad. Not novel but not bad and I usually like this type of story but literally nothing is happening. I held on until chapter 39 to make this comment because I kept thinking something might happen. This is super boring. I only gave it 3 stars and not less because maybe it'll get better in the future but for now, it's not progressing at all.

The way I judge whether a story has a good pacing and progress or not is that if I skip 10 chapters or... more>> so, if I don't feel like I missed anything then the author has miserably failed. If I feel lost after skipping them then it's good because that means things have truly developed in the part I skipped. For this, I could read chapter 1 and then chapter 39 and I wouldn't feel any progress <<less

Yeah, the story itself is not bad, I especially liked the ML he feels like a real person and I really enjoyed reading about him, the main problem is that MC is really bland and boring.

Since it’s written from MC’s perspective you can imagine how boring it can get.

The romance is slow and it matches the story, however, I just feel that the more I read the more I expected something exciting to happen but it never did uh.

Overall, it’s an okay read if you don’t mind bland characters. The... more>> plot is good. <<less
