The Third Way of Love 第三种爱情 by 自由行走 Zi You Xing Zou (BE)


He fell in love with her at a time when she didn’t know who he was. He wants to give her all, but he needs time. She is also the same, she was not able to resist his clear eyes. What shouldn’t have started, often ends up happening, and once it starts, it can only sink into sweet happiness and pain. He said, “Don’t think of about the future, leave the future to me.” She said, “I don’t want a future, I only want the present.” Can they really do it?

    I’ve read a lot of positive reviews for this. This is a good story, but I think it should come with a warning in case the readers expect a happy ever after that we usually expect from romance novels. The main female character reminds me of the one in Sealed w/ A Kiss b/c they’re both the “third” person in the relationship.

    I’ve only read the first few chapters and skimmed through the rest. Usually, I try to stick to stories with a happy ending b/c a sad ending can really get me down. Though in this case, I sympathize with the main female character’s decision in the end considering how her sister died. One of these days, I’ll be brave enough to go back to read this more carefully.

    Didn’t know a drama is being made. A happy ending won’t be realistic (unless they take out the sister’s death), but I don’t want a sad ending either. I hope they’ll go with an open ending where there might be a possibility that the main characters might get together again. That’s the best scenario for me.

    After reading this, I no longer want to marry a rich guy XDXD

    I’ve only skimmed the story. The reason this gets such good reviews is b/c a lot of the readers say the characters are realistic and their decisions match with their personality, unlike the usual romance story where sometimes the main characters are not written consistently b/c of the push for the happy ever after ending.

    From what I remember, the little sister acts like she’s OK after the suicide attempt, but at the end, she committed suicide again and succeeded. I can’t remember if it’s b/c she found about that her older sister’s relationship w/ the guy she’s in love with. Before she jumps to her death, the little sister did say that she’s still in love with him. Hence, her death is b/c of him, in a way. This is why the main female character decides that she cannot be with the main guy in the end (a decision I completely understand). It’s like Eastern Palace. How could you be with someone who’s responsible for the death of your family (directly or indirectly), no matter how much you love that person?

    As for the main guy, I think he did marry the rich, bitchy girl. He continues to stay married to her to solidify his position. So between love and power, he chose power. There’s been lots of debates from readers about this, with most agreeing that in real life, between love and power/wealth/money, the man will chose the latter. So in the end, the main guy ultimately gets what he wants, which is power/wealth/money, but he’s miserable b/c he loses the only person he loves so he continues to cuts himself.

    I just finished this novel & I like it, realistic as you guys mentioned and different from the rest of the genre. I can’t stand her sister Zhou Yue who lives in her own fantasy world and hurt those around her, they should have send her for treatment when she attempted suicide at the beginning. It would be good if author write a epilogue and gave a happy ending for the main gal.

    Could someone please explain to me the title of this book? Because in the last scene of the movie with the same title, they were talking about the first and second way of love but they never mentioned about the third. Or there is no third way of love? Or the love of letting go? Or the love for her sister? I’m quite confused.
