I’ve stumbled upon this Chinese mangaka a couple of months back when I read, [b:The Specific Heat Capacity of Love 爱的比热容 |25201177|The Specific Heat Capacity of Love 爱的比热容 |Old Xian|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1427112869s/25201177.jpg|44913301] (another noteworthy Shounen-ai manhua by the same talented mangaka but please prepare the tissues when you read it). Then yesterday I decided to pick up another one of his production - 19 Days. Oh boy, I was glad I did so for it was an insta-mood-lifter. Coincidentally I was feeling kinda down after reading a couple of tearjerkers in a row. And this little gem here delivered the sunshine back to me again.
19 Days is filled with slapstick humor that brought me to tears from laughing too hard. My stomach aches from the constant giggles I had to suppress. I think I looked much like a loony with glistening eyes and a fist in my mouth, shoulders shaking non-stop. The characters are loveable, sweet, cute and freaking hilarious! I couldn’t get enough of them. Love em to bits and pieces.
As for the the artwork style, it is simplistic yet it brought out the charm of the story and was really pleasing to look at. Another plus point is that the whole manhua is in full colors. What a surprise! What a joy!
MUST READ. Pick it up. Read it and fall in love with life. Life should be fun. <3
Dontcha think that this book cover would make an eye catching poster?
