I've seen it gushingly recommended several times in the past year. Well, I gotta say, people were right. This is a really good read. With the premise of being transmigrated into a novel with a setting of a very rural, farming village during the late '60s Communist China, I thought it would be depressing. Especially because she was occupying the body of a young wife character who's purpose in the story was to establish the background for her 3 son's future, twisted villainous mentality due to her abusive neglect. They would be the primary stepping stones for the story's MC to kill on his way to glory. Her character would meet tragedy and betrayal, and ultimately leading to her death. Of course, she didn't want to die. There's only 700 chapters in this novel and the first third of it is about her DAILY life (this is a slice of life story) over several years as she raised her sons while taking great care of her them and her husband's health. In the story of the novel she's in, her husband's death from overwork was the first turning point where everything fell apart for her character. For the second third of the novel, she had made her way to Beijing with her family as the Communist Reform was beginning. She's doing her best to earn money to expand her business "empire" with the goal of buying up as much land as possible while it's still cheap. Her filial sons are in college and starting to decide what they're going to do afterwards. At this point, we're at the final third of the novel. She and her husband are pretty well off. Most of the nephews and nieces they brought to Beijing to uplift are doing well. I'm really curious on where the author will go from here. The translations is fair. Looks kind of like MTL and really could do with a good proof reader, but it's acceptable. Storywise, the MC is pretty Mary Sue. Other than a few two dimensional antagonists that hate her for not favoring them, she really doesn't have any obstacles in the story. Not even with her businesses. he MC has enough sass to brow-beat everybody. There also a bit of repetition with people praising her, but it's scattered around enough not to be overbearing. If I had to summarize my feelings about this novel, it would be that it feels like a low calorie soap opera. It's interesting enough that you'll want to keep reading to see how it goes, but there's nothing profound about it. That said, I did glean from it some stuff regarding filial piety practices that I didn't know before.
