Just finished this earlier and I could say my frame of mind was deeply affected by the ending. It's sad, bittersweet and really hits you in both heart and mind. Especially the end scene with Lin Shu and Nihuang. He didn't lie and made a front but promised her his next life and she, so supportive of him to the very end. Even if it must be breaking her heart. T_T
Just curious though as I cannot read Chinese, was it explicitly narrated in the novel that Lin Shu died? Also, if he did, was there any narration of what happened to Junrui and friend, Lin Chen and especially Fei Liu? Thank you in advance.
