    Default thank u, rabadi

    may i ask two other questions? in the novel
    (1) if it ever stated where is the location of snake island, according to today's map?
    (2) also, what is the location of the characters? perhaps, where is zm's house located, to be more direct, according to today's map?

    Maybe yes, maybe no. I wouldn't remember that detail. It's been more than 10 years since I last read it, so...

    If I am to take a wild guess on the Snake Island, it is probably in East China Sea.

    Andrea, do you mean in the adaptation? 'Cause in the book (1st edition) it was definitely that ZM did not die. The story in the book ended with ZM telling ZWJ about the third wish. I have not read the 2nd edition (much less the 3rd edition ), but I think in the 2nd edition it is still the same, except that ZZR suddenly came up or something.
