My Mister Ostrich 我的鸵鸟先生 by 含胭 Han Yan (HE)


That day as the sun sets, Pang Qian and Gu Ming Xi sat together side by side on the playground platform.

She suddenly leans to his ear, rapidly blinking her eyes.

Her long, curling eyelashes gently sweep in his ear and while sweeping, she asked :”Is it fun? Any ticklish , comfortable feeling?’

Gu Ming Xi held his head down for a long time and gently say “ah” sound.

“Huh? Really? Then your turn to use your eyelashes to tickle my ears!”

Pang Qian excitedly sat up and thought to herself, his eyelashes is very thick, it must be interesting to play.

When she turned her head she found the quiet lad face was blushing.

I want to tell you a story about two young children.

This story is somewhat lukewarm, some trivial, a little oppressive love, but it is also very sweet and heartwarming.

I think, this is destined not a general public story, but I believe there will be people like me who will fall in love with a young lad call Gu Ming Xi.

    I find it sadder than “沥川” (Gu Ming Xi lost both his arm during an accident when he was young) but yes, it’s a happy ending!

    There’s a post for this novel now <3
    It was the title that got me, haha

    I haven't read the entirety of Ostrich yet, but…
    Honestly, aside from the male lead, I don't think it's that similar to Lichuan (as I remember it). Ostrich moves slower, and it's a lot lighter and more 'everyday.' I think the first half of the story is spent developing the relationship between the leads, spanning their birth through high school. Sometimes it's sweet, sometimes comedic, sometimes awkward, and rather heart-aching too. Though they do eventually go separate ways (before reuniting), it's for different reasons to Lichuan. And I think the ending will come more naturally here.

    Alrighty, off to do something productive now XD

    At first i thought “What! seriously? That can’t be possible”…But later i find the story is very touching and heartwarming…I don’t like the weak feamle lead who doesn’t know what she want or what she have to do…In this novel female lead is strong minded and really really loveable..She is the person who know what she want and what she have to do… When i finished the novel i thought the author is beautifully romancing the characters. And i also thought that sometimes Love is really powerful and when u think that u don’t deserve the love because of your condition or your appearance or whatever the reason u think, that’s not true…Love can find a way to u and u will be happy beacuse of the person who love u unconditionally…

    I love this story so far, so realistic but slowly draw you in to love it. Though the progress is slow but character development and the story feels like you grow up with them, sharing their story of life, hearing their hardship, rooting for them when they are down, crying with them when they are facing their trial. I would say the male lead really surpassed everything I would think of someone with the same disability. Also made me thankful for what I’ve been given, trying not to take it for granted.

    I read the English translation and couldn’t wait so I decided to use google translate to read the rest. This story has its moment of comedy, a bit of angst especially closer to the end, but most of all, the story gave me such heartache. At certain points in the story, I shed a couple of tears for Mingxi. There’s not a whole lot of romance but rather more of a story about a boy who beats the odds that were stacked mountain high against him and came up on top. I love Pang Pang too, once she realized what is true love and who she loves she was steadfast and refused to waver. I love this book and wished I could read Chinese so I could buy the book with its beautiful cover.

    This book is so good and heart touching! If it ever becomes a drama, I’d definitely watch it! (that is if they follow the plot thoroughly)And that’s from someone who doesn’t watch dramas that much unless they’re really good.

    This book is so heartwarming. I cried so many times but will definitely read it again. I wish I could read Chinese so I could read the original version.

    This novel really touches the heart and soul. I read Li Chuan and although it is a good read but it does not have the extra something like this book. I read this translation a few times and i cry on the number of times i read it. I do not read Chinese and i am thankful to the translator for the effort.
