That Year, Time Flew (Back in Time/Fleet of Time) 匆匆那年 by 九夜茴 Jiu Ye Hui (OE)


After graduation, Zhang Nan couldn’t find a good job and went to study abroad in Australia. In Australia, he met and was attracted to Fang Hui who was also studying. Coincidentally, due to certain reasons, Fang Hui and Zhang Nan lived together under the same roof. He also managed to find out from his friends how Fang Hui was once deeply hurt by a man. By chance, in Zhang Nan’s room, Fang Hui shared with him about her story.

This book talks about the story of a group of teenagers born in the 1980s. As Fang Hui shared her story, it was as if she returned to those days. Those days spent in school were filled with happiness and romance. That was where she spent her youth.

    Thank you for the sypnosis, cloudandsea! I enjoyed reading it. How does the book end? Sad ending with CX and FH breaking up and they’re both single or open ending with CX/XT and FH/ZN? Please spoil, thanks.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to post & write such a detailed review of the book in view of your looming exam:) FYI, I found two audiobooks as well as a 25 episode drama will be filmed. This is bcos this is a very popular book as I also read good ratings & comments on it. But this is so sad. Most of these coming of age books have open or sad ending like that TH’s Time Will Never Go Back & XYW’s Lost Youth. For once, someone comes to Aust to study, not US:P

    Chen Xun sounds hateful & kind of have the same acronym as Chen Xiao Zheng in Lost Youth. Oh, they are both from the Chen family, did those authors have anything against that family lol? I guess most ppl have to kiss a few toads b4 finding their prince and bcos of the traumatic experience, it is the toad that left an indelible image in their heart/mind. As much as I dislike CX, he is the way he is. This kind of person will most probably won’t stay single. Since he is smart & good looking, there will always be fresh blood available to him. Maybe he’ll get married, then divorced or have an affair but a leopard can’t change its spots. My preference is for the girl to move on & find a trustworthy guy who can give her the security she craved for like Wei Wei In Lost Youth. You need not marry the one you love most but you must marry the one who love you most.

    I found some goodies to share with you:)

    Nice song (What is Love?)

    This is how the author looks like:

    It’s a open ending. If I did not rmb wrongly, CX and FH had dinner together but both of them did not express any thoughts of getting back together. I guess both of them are like part of their youth and that’s it.

    Hey peanut. You are welcome:) im a slacker actually haha. If they are really filming, I will be the first to watch. But I guess it will not have the same feeling as how I read the novel. Adapations from novel are always like that. With bbjx and na xie nian, wo men zui guo de nv hai as an exception. Still excited though!

    The song in the video is nice but I expected them to make a video through cuts from other dramas. Like how there’s a video of Dong Gong (Eastern Palace) starring LSS, Hu Ge and Walllace Chung!

    I interpret the open ending as a good ending. They didn’t end up together but I guess that’s the only option for them. After what they went through, their love has diminished already.

    This book just got a translation to my language and i really curious about the story but i cant find anyone who review the book in my language lol (maybe bcs its a newly released). I’ve watched several first episodes of the drama adaptation but i dont really like it (the story aren’t smooth and kinda messed up but the actors&actress are so good) thats why i think i need to read the original book to proof that the story was not that bad (i believe it beforehand, bcs it’s not possible to a bad book got movie and drama adaptation). Thank you cloudandsea to sum it up for us to read and it helps me to decide whether to buy or not:)) actually i kinda shocked that chen xun did that to fang hui and how their love story ended up, but it makes me curios more about the next chapter (the 2nd book). Reading and watching it in 2024 feels like too late (?) bcs people on comment sections already talk abt it from 10 years ago (⁠╥⁠﹏⁠╥⁠) hahahah. Anyway thank you again!
