I have actually read the fan translation of this novel in English much earlier on. Then yesterday I decided to try my luck and listened to the original Chinese novel using Cantonese Text-to-Speech (TTS) instead since I couldn't read Chinese text. Although the TTS quality isn't up to par and there are mispronunciations here and there, I find it quite a satisfying experience.

Feng Yu Jiu Tian is a rare gem I am glad to have found through fan translation channel. I liked the blast to the past time-travel theme with a witty and charming protagonist. I really adore Feng Ming for his quick wits and endearing personality. He's so adorable I wanna squeeze him and not let go. Possessive Rong Tian wouldn't approve of it for sure. *Sighs longingly* Rong Tian is such a sexy tyrant even I wanted to be eaten by him.

There's so much to this novel than just the romance between the two main character. The plots are thick and intriguing. Being in such an enviable position as the Crown Prince no doubt it is more troublesome and dangerous than what Feng Ming had first thought. To survive, Feng Ming has to use his 21st century mind and his natural intelligence to counter whatever trouble he was forced to confront.

This is my favorite cosplay picture of this story:
These two are the best Feng Yu Jiu Tian cosplayer ever! That's exactly how the spirited uke, Feng Ming should look like. And that's the suave Rong Tian right there. O(≧▽≦)O ❤

I am not going to attempt to do an in depth review here. Instead please do visit this awesome review on a fan's blog if you are interested to know more of this amazing boy's love novel. I am going to jump on the next book like right now. Bye!

And oh yes, of course I would highly recommend this fun and interesting novel especially to those who enjoy Ancient China social and political intrigue.
