《寻郎》In Search of Love – 明月听风 (HE)

xl

A woman who doesn’t have a single romantic cell in her body got informed by Yue Lao (god of marriage) that she must bring back her destined love, else she’ll live out the rest of her life in loneliness.

But how does that man look? No idea.

What’s his personality like? No idea.

What does he do (for a living)? No idea.

Can she not go? Of course not.

Su Xiaopei, who believes in all things logical has run up against some serious wall this time.

The bottom line: This is a story about a modern female psychologist who has traveled back in time and an adorable warrior as they talk about love and solve crimes.

    I have just finished reading this book on http://www.sto.cc and my take is – this is a long-winded book with a solid OTP. Zhuang Shi (Mr Warrior) is a super adorable character, with an easy smile and a set of broad shoulders that can take on all the troubles of our heroine. He seems like a normal-variety Mr Good Guy at first but his quirky code of ethics quickly dispel the myth. Xiao Pei, our time-travelled heroine, is a very brave, very smart lady who suits him perfectly. I love their bickering, their lovey-covey, and even the mysteries, which are cleverly woven into the story. My only wish for the book is that it could have been more succinct. Some of the murders are pretty gristly so it is gratifying to see Xiao Pei helping to bring the culprits to justice. I like “3 Marriages” by the same author better because it is less wordy, but I like this OTP just as much as Second Master and Ju Mu’er.

    Thanks Hamster for recommending the book!

    ps: Decembi – if you see this. This book is right up your alley, complete with a Yue Lao (God of Marriage) #2238 and lots of red threads.

    @serendipity this novel is complete so you can read with no worried for cliffhanger.

    @moonblossom I’m glad you liked it. I also thought it long at 3 books but I liked the OTP and I come equipped with super skimming skill haha.

    At the mention of Yue Lao and long-windedness, the author wrote a little essay on how she came up with this story and part of it included her creation of Yue Lao. She apparently had written a scene with him that she loved, but readers thought it was unnecessary so it got edited out in the published version. It was a pretty interesting read into an author ‘s thoughts.

    Okay, I absolutely enjoyed this book! This couple is the type of couple I love best. Two people who work together to deal with whatever confronts them; two people who are on equal terms. Though I thought the plot was great, I saw what was coming from a mile away. But that doesn’t matter, since to me the characters are slightly more important than plot, and the characters were amazing. This book is a must read!

    I really want a well made audiobook of this, since the robotic voice of google translate isn’t the best reader….

    I WANT TO READ THIS ONE BUT I HAVE NO TIME!!!! NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

    just ignore the above freak out… Is this novel funny? is the novel really long?

    Yeah, it’s pretty funny. The couple’s conversations are gold. As for length, it’s 100+ chapters (at least the version I read is). There’s also some chapters being changed, so it can be confusing sometimes.

    i finally finished this.

    It felt kind of draggy to me. I wasnt as entranced with this novel as other Ming Yue Ting Feng novels.

    The characters conversations and black belliness were quite funny though.

    Some of the cases were very confusing for me and the foreshadowing was meh… (but then again, im used to court intrigue novels…. which has foreshadowing at the beginning for an event at the end.)

    @serendipity
    I also felt it got a bit draggy towards the middle to end, but that’s how I felt about all Ming Yue Ting Feng novels. Which case was confusing for you?

    I found this draggy. I skipped chapters to get an overall understanding of the plot. But the cases spread over numerous chapters. Too long. I liked her Dragon Flies Phoenix Dances and Three Marriages. Three Marriages was long, but the writing was better?

    @LovelyDay

    I actually got bored with Three Marriages after their first divorce. Kind of gave up on it, while this one I kept going on. In general, I like mysteries. It’s also nice that to everyone, she’s not attractive at all, both by appearance and by her actions. So the fact that the guy found the gem in her made it so much more sweeter. It’s two slightly quicky people finding each other and working through problems side by side. I’m not saying this is my favorite Ming Yue Ting Feng book, but the one that sucked me in the most. However, I understand that some won’t like it a lot, I guess each to his own.

    I’m in the draggy part right now – looking forward to when she figures it out! I’ve been thinking of trying a translation project but the draggy parts and the psychological explanation parts are making me think twice – and this is longer than I expected!
