    I like the conflicts/set up in book 2 more than book 1. Book 1 was simplistic… guy girl get married or not? Whereas in book 2 they explore more themes like what it means to marry someone your parents disapprove of, the point between guiding your child and being dictatorial, the effects of the one-child policy, the difficulties of being an army wife and what it means to be “successful” in china?

    The conflicts are way more interesting… and MY grows up a lot like right at the end, she decided that she’ll be herself and finally, how she and CM resolve conflicts. Unlike last time, everytime she meets with difficulties, she wants to run away – break up but after she got married, she realised that a thrashed wedding doesn’t mean that her marriage will be a goner too…

    I found it so cute that their peace treaty is him peeling an apple for her and her cooking supper for him. It doens’t mean that their conflcit has been miraculously resolved because of that but it is a sign that both parties are willing to call a truce to work it out.

    The broadcaster killed me but towards the end when the conflict with mom-in-law boiled over it was GREAT both Chen Mo’s reaction and MY’s decision in the end.
