This is the longest audiobook that I have listened to. Unlike 庶女明兰传 (Shù Nǚ Míng Lán Chuán) – The Legend of the Concubine Daughter Ming Lan, I like this book more as I got hooked after each episode. There are two versions of the audiobook. Audiobook 1 was recorded with a single female voice and Audiobook 2 was recorded with both male and female voices. Though it is much easier to listen to Audiobook 2 unfortunately, the recording is not completed yet. The female reader in Audiobook 1 did a pretty good job. I am totally fine with only Female voice as long as I can differentiate the male and female roles in the book. If you read the review of this book in Shushengbar, you will notice how popular this book is. It is also my favourite and I am looking forward to the upcoming drama even though I heard that the story could be different from the book. This book is currently being translated into English by Solstar.
