You Are More Beautiful Than Beijing

Description

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

Han Ting said, “For me, love isn’t everything. I may not be able to provide self-sacrificing love for you, but the love that accompanies you in ordinary life may be possible.”

Ji Xing understands that the love they seek is different, and the outlines of the dreams in their hearts are also different.

But she wanted to climb from the slope to the top of the mountain, stand beside him, face hardships, troubles and pain with him, and witness the beauty of this city with him.

They were dazzling stars who admired each other in their hearts, just like the night view of the capital that he showed her for the first time–

Calm, stunning beauty, so beautiful it is intoxicating.

If I tell you that I haven't done anything other than read since I discovered this novel, I'm loving the complex characters and problems of grown-ups in their relationships, it's interesting to see the growth as they experience a romance with real love and try to balance that
Spoiler

I'm really curious how they're going to get back to the flirting stage with each other, or if they're going to get there again. Is there going to be a little jealousy? If FL is going to come back completely changed and ready to move on with her life and ML finally understands what love means and pursues FL again, maybe that would be a little ooc for ML? Great job, can't wait for the next update

It's beautiful. Especially the extra volume. It's a slice of life. It covers their story when they first met up to the end of their lives. It also explained the business side not just purely romance. Some might find those parts boring but it shows people's ambitions and how they work hard to get what they want. I like how their careers progressed. ML taught FL a lot of things and he let her do her thing. ✅ Being a corporate s*ave

✅ The struggles of starting your business

✅ Can you... more>> have love and career at the same time?

✅ Not all first love lasts

✅ uncertainty of the future

✅ business schemes

✅ why marriage is not simple

***This author really knows how to make readers cry so just prepare your tissues. I must say I like it more than Waiting for You in a City. Han Ting and Ji Xing's love is different from Song Yan and Xu Qin. <<less

Really loved this novel.

A big fan of this author's "Waiting for You in a City". As I am waiting for the drama adaptation of it, I came to know of another novel to drama adaption, which was called 'As Beautiful As Beijing' by the same author, so I had to read it. So so good. I have to agree with max111, I liked this novel better than 'Waiting for You in a City'.

5/5

It’s 3am and I just finished reading. With tears in my face. Such a beautiful novel.

I had hard time reading it as it’s too real, especially the beginning chapters. Too realistic and downright embarrassing sometimes. But the characters grow and evolve and endear themselves to us. I have not felt so connected with the characters like I do with FL and ML.

A really good read. And I’m happy I picked up this novel to read. I hope you will too.

It's been awhile since I read a story that can move me to tears like this.

This story brought out lot of aspects in our life. Studies, career, friendship, social relationship, moral values, and what love is.

The setting of the novel is touching the realm of the contrast of hyper rich/successful and those who are struggling and learing to grow. But the authour brilliantly (I shouldnt be surprised tho, all of their other works are amazing too) put meaningful life lessons without being cliché and none of the twists and... more>> turns are overused. It makes the readers question things and our way of thinking in the most profound way.

And all this wont be possible without the amazing translation either. Couldnt find a fault.

A masterpiece, trully. <<less

You Are More Beautiful Than Beijing is about Ji Xing, who is in the AI industry and dreams of building a company and breaking barriers. And Han Ting, an influential investor and businessman. This story is broken down into three volumes. The first is about Ji Xing's journey to achieve her dream. The second volume is about Han Ting and Ji Xing working in the same industry and the start of romance. The third novel is about their love story with some cute extra chapters.

What I liked about this novel... more>> is that there's a lot of career growth in Ji Xing's journey. Because we see her pursuing her dream and all the struggles she has to go through, it's easy to see how she's evolved from vol 1 through to 3. I like the slow-burn romance and how there are a lot of interactions between them before any serious feelings are even developed. I also like how these two hold flawed characteristics despite being good-looking or intelligent (I realized this author likes writing about flawed characters). These characters are well thought out and written in that even though they make unlikeable decisions, it can be justified through their character traits. It makes sense from how Han Ting vs. Ji Xing sees love that they would make certain decisions.

I disliked how slow it took for us to get any romance. I like a slow burn, but only if romance trickles in. This one felt more like a business/career novel in the first half and romance in the last half. So we get some jargon that I don't understand, and it doesn't make sense to me, but it sounds fancy. Not sure how accurate it is in the AI and medical field, but it doesn't sound too reaching.

Apart from that, if you're okay with a slow burn, appreciate a strong woman, like flawed but well-thought-out characters, then this one may be a good read for you. <<less

They are not omnipotent. They have flaws. They are materialistic. But emotional and mentally growth with happiness, joy, sadness, broken heart, ego, betrayals and tears.

I cried when her 7 years relationship shattered. Both of them were still in love at that time, but he knew that their concept of life and love is different after facing the reality of life. He wants a beach layback, ordinary, normal and easy love life but she wants power to face the mountain of life.

When her short relationship broke up, she was devastated. She... more>> was lost. ML wants to be the Emperor and she was afraid of the real hidden power of the mountain.

Unknown to her, ML actually taught her to be the Empress. Wether she succeed or not, he doesn't bother. His love definition is different from common people. Because to be able to stand still at the peak of the mountain you are not an ordinary person.

He said to her, "The love I believe in probably lasts until the end of life. When I look back, I will have a definitive conclusion."

"Mr. Han, it was a pleasure to know you. Thank you for everything in this life." <<less

This was an awesome story, very realistic and well-written. The characters were all relatable, no one in extremes, and behaved like how you would expect normally in life. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and the translation was excellent and on time.

I’m so glad I persisted reading the story. The story started from when they do not know each other. I love the way ML teach her the way of life for entrepreneurship, it might looks quite cruel but I think its needed in that kind of settings. It also gives me a new outlook on how to be a better leader. Overall the story is mature and become fluffier towards the end. The translator make a good job translating the story but the story is so interesting that I just... more>> want to read it until the end in one setting so I MTLed it. The MTL version is also readable. Love the ending too. I really encourage everyone to read this story <<less

My first review in novel updates reserved for this book.

Beautiful, honest, tear jerker.

I especially liked the extra chapters. They are the most meaningful to me right now, being older...

While I don't understand much about the business and technology side of this novel, it was well written so as to guide readers unfamiliar with this field.

The ending is gorgeous.

A memorable book, worthwhile reading.

From the 1st line to the last I was hooked up.. It's a very atypical story with very realistic FL & ML. I love the slow growth of their love into a passionate one.. and also loved the FL's first love experience which made me cry a lot..

Like everyone else, the last chapter defines their kind of Love.. inseparable through life and death..

Last but not the least, Thanks to the translator for a beautiful work...

If only every person in the world would have a love like Han Ting and Ji Xing how nice could that be?

I too am one who wish to have it but reality is really too harsh and sad. Still somehow for me this novel filled in the void that I have albeit temporary.

Thank very much to the author and to the translator thisnovel is truly a wonderful work.

This really really a good story to read. Not too heavy not too light. It's really good translation too.

But personal opinion I don't really like the FL, if shes in another novel she would be the past girlfriend of ML 😬

I don't know I think she kinda has like princess syndrome or something. Whenever she broke up with her bf, she wants them to call her first. Make amends to her first. She wants them to Pacify her first eventho she knew shes the wrong. Then she'll regret it when... more>> they move on....

But maybe this is the way the author portay her, like it's part of her journey to become more mature. <<less

I👏🏻CANNOT👏🏻FIND👏🏻ANY👏🏻WORDS👏🏻AT👏🏻ALL.

A must read. The novel is exquisitely done. The slow burn does not drag the series at all. In fact, it highlights the characters even more.

I didn't even managed to put down my phone as I read it.

The translation was done so well. It did justice to the novel so it can shine in another language. 🥹 I'll reread again!

This is probably the best novel I have read in all these 6 years. I looked at the development of the characters and their relationships. Throughout the novel, I had different feelings about situations and characters. This is probably the one novel that I will never forget. He made me cry the most in my 6 years of reading novels. I really liked the relationships of the characters and the way the author showed and developed them. Maybe when I'm even older, I'll want to read it again and cry.

The whole story was actually really realistic. Life is not a bed of roses so there will always be hardships and we have to work hard to overcome them. The extras made me tear up so bad. Han Ting and Ji Xing's love would always stay in my mind especially because of the ending! I hope they find each other in the afterlife 🖤

Thank you to Author who wrote wonderful realistic novel and to Krish728 as translator who did an awesome works to deliver a wonderful translation.

I really recommend this novel to anyone who love a realistic plot. So expect some laughs, cry, happiness as the journey of life.

The FL grew slowly with ML's support and love their love story and Han Ting was there for Ji Xing.

I was crying because on last extra as the parting but don't worry, this novel is happy ending but the story was till the end of... more>> their life and I really wish the author will write more extras but unfortunately it won't happen. So hopefully the drama will as good as the novel.

Another reason I love this novel, so many advice from ML that I feel like I need to note down for my daily life as well.

Author really did a good research 👏 for this novel. <<less

First, I want to thank the translators for translating this beautiful story and making it accessible to us, this is my favorite chinese novel and will remain to be for a long time.

I love the characters, in the last chapter I was crying so much, I still feel like crying😭 What I loved most about this book is, it realisticness which can be rare in most chinese novels and how well written it was.

This is especially in vl 1-2 when he was mentoring her, clearly you could see this is... more>> a man who's skilled, has loads of experience and an elite in business, inshort a successful CEO.

Some of the advices he gave esp on management and startups I felt like I should also take notes 😁/ learn from him. This shows that the author took time to research businesses, companies, AI e.t.c which is great. Sometimes I hate how people write books based on a career only to gloss over the whole career with a mere 5 sentences, how are we supposed to believe the MC was good at it when the author can't prove it🧐

I also appreciated and loved how the author took time to explain their diff points of view especially on love, work and career which is crucial otherwise we would end up misunderstanding both of them.

This was an amazing book, a worth it read and the translation was on point and very well done💜 This is one of those books that would live on my book shelf (if I had it in paperback) and I would reread it once in a while just to re-live all these beautiful moments. This will be saved as a favorite in my library online account for a long while.

And lastly I really want a love like this, (I know its cheesy but it doesn't hurt to wish and dream) a love that lasts everyday and goes on till the last moment and beyond🥰 <<less

Love this novel!! So beautifully written!!

I didn't even realise I was so attached to this novel until I reached the last chapter. I cried while reading the last chapter, it's kinda ironic because I didn't know whether I was happy or sad. I loved both the characters in the novel. They were so realistically writter. This novel portrayed every emotion from admiration to love to betrayal to love again. I was kinda boring at some point but I'm glad I finished it.

I specifically created an account just to rate the book and give it 5 stars.

Love. I think this word was perfectly described in this book. I really hope I get to have what Han ting and xing'er had in this life.

Ji Xing lived life. There were definitely moments I felt she was immature, but that is what made her seem so real.

... more>> The first time she broke up, I cried with her. The second time too, I cried. (I guess I was really emotional)

Reading the whole thing in just one day definitely was a different experience. I was too involved in the story by the end of the day.

Overall, really lovely story. <<less
