Following from completing the popular novel, Come & Eat, Shan Shan (杉杉来吃), another highly recommended novel by one of my favorite novelist – Gu Man (顾漫 ) would be Silent Separation (何以笙箫默).
Silent Separation (何以笙箫默) is a short and sweet story about two college sweetheart that was separated over some misunderstanding. Seven years later, fate brought them back together. This is the story of the bright and cheerful Zhao Mo Sheng who met the ever popular in University but cold with poor communication skill top law student, He Yi Chen and fell in love with him. Unfortunately, due to the lack of communication and some misunderstanding between them, Mo Sheng sadly left for United States. She only return seven years later and almost immediately, they met in a crowded supermarket……
A total of only 12 chapters, and 3 Epilogue, Silent Separation (何以笙箫默) is an easy and enjoyable read. Head over to Silent Separation (何以笙箫默) English Translation and enjoy your read!
What is more exciting is… this beautiful novel was adapted both into drama (Starring Wallace Chung paired with Tang Yan) and movie (Starring Huang Xiao Ming paired with Yang Mi) with the title : You Are My Sunshine (何以笙箫默). I must say that I personally loved the Drama version more vs the Movie version. Several factors involve of course, however the main reason of course is because although the drama version is much longer vs the novel version, Wallace Chung (鍾漢良) carried himself very well as He Yi Chen.
