Good Even if you don't like cultivation

The style is good.

The story is well thought out, fairly original, and the world feels very real.

The grammar is okay. Some poor comma usage, their there they're confusion, possesive plural confusion but words are in the correct order and used correctly.

The characters are very memorable. Each character has a distinct, varied, and compelling background and motivation and all characters have names that are easy for an english speaker to remember unlike every other cultivation novel.

The foreshadowing has been exceptional with some already satisfying deliveries. The author has demonstrated an ability to expand the world, the stakes, the story, and characters time and time again without exposition dumps and without overwhelming the reader with details. Overall this story has been a delight to read from start to present (ch38). I highly recommend reading it!

Not bad, I find it kind of entertaining how he's actually a plant instead of instantly evolving into some kind of monster immediately. It's... astonishingly laid back for a cultivation story. I mean, sure, there's a number of references to the standard arrogance and disregard for weaker people, but the actual characters in the story all seem pretty chill. There's some grammar issues, mostly things like the author using the wrong homophone, like, sores instead of soars, and the chapters are pretty short, so there's a lot less story than you might think given the number of chapters, but if you're interested in a fairly slice of life cultivation story, you might like this one.

Better than most wuxia but...

...that's not saying much.

Review as of chapter 40.

Read the book if you like reincarnation and a main character that doesn't kill people left and right. But don't read it if you can't stand bad grammar or style.

Grammar(2.5/5) - I'll knock this one out first because it's the most glaringly bad part of the story. To quote the author, "I'm afraid you might have to put up with some bad grammar"(chapter 40 author's note). That, by the way, is an understatement. The grammar in this story is terrible. The author regularly switches between present and past tense and splatters his sentences with commas. The author also occasionally combines multiple people's dialogue. Without exaggerating, this grammar would fail a sixth-grade English course(assuming the teacher has standards).

But for all the errors, it's still perfectly readable. If you've read machine translated novels, your brain will skip over the errors as if they weren't there. It'll take most people some getting used to, but at the end of the day, you can understand everything the author is trying to say.

 

Story(4.5/5) - (I'm sooo biased) The story is great. I'm a sucker for reincarnation, and this story pulls off being reincarnated as a plant amazingly. (A plant! I love this shit!) The book also has a solid amount of comedy, and it's done well as well. The plot is getting stronger with the recent flashback chapters, and I'm looking forward to where it goes.

Additional notes: There's no harem. The MC not overpowered. There's no central driving plot or overarching goal other than cultivating.

Style(3/5) - Grammar gets in the way of the style. Even if the grammar was perfect, the style leaves much to be desired. The descriptions are badly done, and sensory details are lacking. I recently edited some high school creative writing papers. They did a far better job in both the grammar and style departments.

Additional Notes: Badly done ecchi(sexual scenes).

Characters(3.5/5) - Spoiler: Spoiler

Story seems interesting but poor syntax

The story seems interesting enough.  It's laid back cultivation, at least at the start.  However, I have a huge problem with the syntax errors in the novel.  It's not just one or two of them.  The author frequently switches between present and past tense.  I tried to ignore it at first but it happens frequently, at least in the two chapters I read.  There are other syntax errors all over the place, like incomplete sentences, incorrect comma usage, and more.  I just couldn't keep reading it.

I wonder how this story will play out... But!

I really like where this is going. Can't wait to read the next couple of chapters. (I read until chapter Spring by the way so this is what i rated)

[C38]Nature centric, plant stays plant

Love stories that revolve around nature and enjoy this one too. Story is paced nicely, MC is OP (For a plant) but not arrogant and annoying. Would recommend a reading.

I write this review to warn others about this story, it is not meant to judge/review style, story, or characters.

The thing I will judge, however, is the grammar. It is written in Third-person present-tense, I think. The reason I am not sure; is because the author often switches to third-person past-tense, and sometimes throws in some good-ole Third-person omniscient in for good measure making for some jarring and sometimes downright confusing sentences with which the next problem doesn't help.

Due to the bad punctuation, it is often required to re-read sentences multiple times to understand what the sentence is actually supposed to mean, which combined with the other problems make this fiction a borderline chore to read.

I m enjoying this novel. This isn't a serious novel by any means some of the characters do any me every now and then like giving a thumbs up every other sentence and small crap like that.

 

It's a good slce of life that just lacks chapters.

I usually like the more action novels, but there is just as much to offer from this story. It makes me reflect on how all the lit rpg's I like all boil down to a steadily progressing MC with difficulties to overcome on the way.
