Essence of Troll
Translations are bad; the FL's name goes between Qiao An and Jo An? And her friend's can Locke and Loco. MTL? But I'm DISGUSTED at the doctor uncle. He takes advantage of a patient (who is married to his nephew) - forcing her to let him bathe her, and check to on her when she EXPLICITLY requests a female nurse and is IMMOBILE. Not only that, the author did no research, suggesting that the FL take a *shower* when she's laid up in bed unable to move. Like, sorry? If you're that badly injured, you'd be wiped down, you wouldn't take a shower. All in all, so not recommend.
I apologize beforehand to the author. This book is trash. I was happy to see the MC finally stand up for herself and retaliate against her scum of a husband. She even found out that his uncle had been in love with her all the while. Then she goes and sleeps with him and in case she gets pregnant, pretends she's reconciled with the husband she wants to divorce, leaving him to be not just lied to by her but also by a woman he doesn't love and has been rejecting all this time. All this, supposedly, because she owes him and wants to compensate him. I don't buy it and I have no interest in wasting time reading about misunderstandings and other mishaps that could have been easily avoided from the very beginning. I'm really surprised at the positive reviews.
synopsis very good makes me want to read![img=update][img=update][img=update][img=recommend][img=recommend][img=recommend][img=recommend][img=recommend][img=recommend][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=coins][img=coins][img=coins][img=coins][img=coins][img=update][img=update][img=recommend][img=update][img=recommend][img=update][img=recommend][img=recommend][img=update][img=recommend][img=update][img=recommend]
I couldn't read past chapter 6...in ch 1, there was already a MAJOR inconsistency, but I kept going since I liked the synopsis. The FL is described as strong and she's supposed to get revenge, but her progress is weak and it's more like how little kids fight? i.e. tell the other party what you will do or give blatant clues to alert them...and she's so rude to the ML, who saved her life. She's not thankful and still doggedly believes the lies her scum husband told her about the uncle, instead of using her eyes to see and her brain to think and understand. it's another one of those where the author tells us the FL is awesome, brilliant even when her actions and thoughts are inconsistent :(
If you're into plots that have a lot of misunderstandings, then this story is for you. I'm not into this type of genre, but I've invested a lot of time and money into this novel so I'll finish it until the end. But if I had known beforehand that it was full of so much miscommunication then I would have skipped out on this story. I think what also needs a lot of work is the translation of the pronouns. It jumps around a lot from he to she or vice versa and I have to reread the sentences to understand what the paragraph is trying to say. The character's names or at least the female lead's name is often alternated between her English name and Chinese name as well. I caught on to it quickly so it got less confusing, but the consistency is just not there. Hmm... although this is not the best story I've read so far, I'm still hoping for a positive outcome.
