A Virus Life For Me

by tenqui

Original COMPLETED Action Adventure Comedy Fantasy Magic Non-Human lead Reincarnation

Poor Mark just cannot catch a break.  First he dies saving another person and is summoned in front of the "Overbeing".  The "Overbeing" gives Mark choices for his next reincarnation due to his selfless act.  However, all is not as it seems.  Just before being sent off to experience his next life as an evolver Mark overhears another person talking to the "Overbeing".  It seems Mark was somehow a threat to the "Overbeing" and was eliminated and sent on his way before he could cause problems.  Now that Mark knows what happens he vows to attain enough power to overcome the "Overbeing" and thus fulfill what he was eliminated for in the first place.  However, to do that he must master his evolver abilities and make it through a new world where magic and monsters are real.

Man reincarnates into a simple virus.  Must figure out how to evolve into more dangerous and significant things.  Hijinks, hilarity, and hopefully action occur along the way.

Chapter 7 and looking great!

Looking really good say far (as of ch. 7). I loved King of the Mountain. Can't wait to see what you do with a Re:

Be careful, most of the Re: stories i've read all end up stagnating after making the MC so overpowered they have trouble with the story. Then again, you did that in KotM and it was great all the way to the finish!

I really loved king of the mountain and I hope I will also love this one.The idea of a virus is not overuse so it let people wonder about what will happen next. For the moment we don't have a lot of information on the character but he has a lot of potential. I really waited for a story like this and the one I saw were dropped and I know that the author doesn't drop story so I'm truly happy. Five star just for the potential. Sorry for grammar.

Give it a chance, you might just like it!

So I just finished the book, and it was a wonderful read.  The only issue I really have is the rush to the end, as there are a lot of timeskips.  Other than that, you should give it a read.  The character is interesting, and doesn't keep making idiotic decisions to move the story forward.  The story moves smoothly, and in a believable fashion.  There might be an occasional grammar error, but I don't remember any glaring issues with it at all.

I like the story and the beginning is promising. Nothing to add though. Keep up the good work.

Nice but the ending was a little lackluster

Reviewed at: 57 - Revenge!!!

Everything in the story is good except for the ending, I just feel like it was rushed and a little poorly planned.

And there wasn't much emphasis on the virus part for 80% of the entire story.

But i probably couldn't do any better.

I think the best way I can describe my feelings for this story is the following statement: if you replaced all of the character interactions with the protagonist reading from an FAQ I am not sure I would be able to tell the difference.

Characters - and I use the term very loosely here - exist only for the purpose of spouting exposition to the protagonist.  They are always either amazed at the protagonists strength or telling him how to get stronger and literally nothing else.  There is no character development, or indeed any notable development at all.

While one could argue the main characters strength and power does develop, that hardly bares mentioning.  It is only a few chapters in that the main character becomes more or less immortal and nothing poses a threat to him short of the elimination of all life on the planet down to the microbes.  

There is no challenge to overcome, no character that truly matters to the protagonist - and that is also an actual character and not just an FAQ - and no events or locations with any significant impact.  It is a dry read and lacks excitement to an almost appalling degree.

If you have nothing else to read, it is better than staring at a wall and wondering if your life has meaning.  If you have anything else to read through, I'd suggest reading that.
