I don’t read tons of web novels, and I don’t know all that much about what’s popular or who’s famous, but I figured the practice in translating will do my awful Chinese some good.
This is one of Jiu Xiao Qi’s (酒小七) earlier and shorter novels. I vaguely remember reading the translation for her novel ‘The Rice Pot Next Door’ (隔壁那个饭桶) a few years ago, and I know that one of her novels was adapted into the drama ‘My Mr Mermaid’ (浪花一朵朵). A few of her other novels are also in the process of being translated, so I decided to add another because why not.
‘If You Don’t Go To Hell, Who Will?’ (你不入地狱谁入地狱) tells the story of two university students, one of whom develops a sort of hobby for bullying the other. I haven’t read too far ahead, but it sounds like a light read with a cute cat and mouse pair. And you know what? That’s my kind of story.
