One of my favorite translator, Hoju on Hui3r has recently completed a light novel by her favorite (now also mine) author, Mo Bao Fei Bao (墨宝非宝). After having following her translation for Stewed Squid with Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼) for several months, the end has finally arrived. With the completion of Stewed Squid with Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼), I must admit that I am having minor withdrawal. This leads me to re-reading the translation all over again….
Among all the Mo Bao Fei Bao (墨宝非宝) translated novels that I have read, I must admit that my far favorite is still One Life, One Incarnation – Beautiful Bones (一生一世美人骨) which as Hoju had mentioned in her Stewed Squid with Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼) — Intro, Prologue, and Chapter 1, is more serious novels / stories. So reading Stewed Squid with Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼) is definitely a much lighter and enjoyable read. After all, Stewed Squid with Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼) is a fluffy and funny read.
Stewed Squid with Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼) is a story about Tong Nian, our female lead whom is a very popular and young online Japanese songs cover singer experience in her love at first sight. One night, while helping out a friend in the cybercafe, a man (Gun, the male lead) walked in, attracting the attention of Tong Nian.
Gun, cold by nature with little patience, is a smart professional online gamer and leader of the popular KK team. He is very popular in the world of eSports (professional gaming) yet he has a very low social skills making it hard for anyone to be able to approach him.
In Stewed Squid with Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼), I had truly enjoyed reading the slow yet entertaining progress on Tong Nian chasing after Gun and eventually gain a spot in his heart. A low EQ girl whom is also a gaming idiot, it is indeed entertaining (while I had also learn a little about eSports) reading on how Tong Nian, through her ‘innocent’ interactions had slowly make way, catching Gun’s heart.
So, if you are looking for a light read, head over to the completed translation work of Hoju and enjoy the read: Stewed Squid with Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼)
