dont be discouraged by the title

Reviewed at: 17. No Fun Allowed

While the novel title makes it sound lame, it's actually quite the cheeky comedy and the title makes sense in context. So dont be discouraged, it's well worth a read.

The story itself plays with genre tropes in a self-aware fashion that fits together comfortably. It's a strange thing, really. I don't want to go into detail and spoil it for anyone, so I suggest trying it out for yourself to see if it's something you might like, but if you hate cultivation novel tropes... you still might have fun with the way they are used.

It really is a different sort of cultivation story, and there aren't many like it. Sit back, relax and enjoy the "plot".



If you read much chinese cultivation fantasy, you already know what this story is about. The thing is, the execution here is actually very good. I find myself prefering this to some of the chinese fictions that pioneered the merge of cultivation/system fiction. Give it a try. It's very fun to read. 

The God Of Boredom

A very consistent release schedule

Reviewed at: 147. Resurgence

This is basically a dude who gets transmigrated into a xianxia world where he becomes an overpowered mc with op cheats. . . and a system with. . . and all that crapᵀᴹ, but somewhere along the line, the OP mc who was a loser in his previous life ends up as the talented filthy-rich arrogant young master cannon fodder of the most prestigious sect in existence who has to try not to die, which means he has to 

raise some OP mc disciples.

A decent summary of the entire story, all in one sentence.

It has a very consistent release schedule of ~70 chapters, all at once, around once every 22 months.

Sibilant Scribe

Humour and Trope Exploitation for Profit

Reviewed at: 76. Quite Dangerous

LivingSpoon has managed to take on the oversaturated Xianxia market and create such a witty, self-aware story that sucks you in.
The latest arc (last updated at chapter 76) has fallen off the rails. It's become a bit of a mess now sadly. The first few arcs are still well worth reading.
Originally reviewed a while ago, but there haven't been any new updates for over 2 months now. Hope the author is ok.


The main character is not the main character. He has been rebirthed into the body of an Arrogant Young Master, and knows that the Xainxia tropes will cause him to be slaughtered by chapter twelve. Meanwhile he is saddled with a quest system that is forcing him to act or die, leaving him in a state where he has to balance every move against the risk of death.

Let's be clear. I dont like Xainxia in general. This story, I fear, maybe be the gateway drug that may change my mind. Much like a pill made of powdered heavenly scorpion perineum, this story will cleanse your meridians and leave you pinching your glabella in delight.


I have read a lot of Xianxia literature, and have come to love the genre. But, there is a lot of things about xianxia stories that I can't stand. The constant moral struggle to not be evil, the hamfisted self righteousness of MC's, and the clueless way Authors justify their character's crappy behaviour. 

This story is awesome, because it acknowledges those annoying tropes while also giving the reader and the characters distance from them. It's fun to indulge in what's fun about the genre, without the infuriating cringe.


I can’t compare this story to any other I've ever read. The foundations of a xianxia-litrpg-reincarnation might be bloated and boring after reading many of these novels, but even at the beginning of this novel, you can tell you're in for a different experience. 

The style is easy to follow when it should be and difficult to follow when it should be. Spoon’s ability to weave the feelings of the character their focusing on is commendable. The actual writing content is very good. 

The story will sneak up on you. In the beginning, the little planted flags might escape your notice but just a couple dozen chapters in, and the story starts to unveil itself. By the time you get to the current most recent chapter, the number of things you noticed you missed or just actually noticed will be staggering. Might be my favorite story so far. 

The grammatical issues are a little easy to notice when you're so immersed in the writing, but they aren't frequent or faulty enough to make the story any worse. 

While characters may be a little tropey, it's part of the experience in a meaningful way. I theorize that it may even relate to a part of the overarching story. For the most part, characters are consistent and well written, there's just a few moments where it feels like a character is acting a little strange or doesn't notice something that they should've been. But even that might connect to the overarching story. 

Simply a must-read. Can't wait for new chapters. 



With another 71 chapter, it is now a perfect time for a re read of this reconstruction of the xianxia genre and it's tropes. 

let's all remember why this story was so popular 2 years ago and hope that the great quality keeps strong!

Thank you Spoon for all your hard work, and I hope you are satisfied with your work.

I know I am.



Loving it so far.  Really enjoyable!  

Good cultivation parody of various tropes while still keeping a semi-serious atmosphere. Good jokes and parody while the main characters are going about things in a serious manner, well at least to themselves. 


Starts slow and ramps up from there.

Reviewed at: 147. Resurgence

Style: The author is consistently witty and makes a good effort at turning typical Xianxia tropes on their head.

Grammar: There are some hiccups here and there, but nothing major.

Character's: every character remains consistent and there's noticable growth as the story progresses. I love the disciples and their relationship with Long De is actually the heart of the story for me.

Story: Ooh, boy this is the long one.

I have to begin this by saying that I disagree with a lot of reviews here. The story doesn't suddenly nosedive in quality in the second half, it just becomes more complicated. Most of what's covered in the second half was gradually being hinted at for a while.

While there are Definitely events that are rapid-fire and confusing on a first take, every single one of them is hinted at 10 chapters prior and has apropriate build up(not that my tiny attention span got it in the first read-through, I had to go back and read again to notice the foreshadowing).

I think the main problem a lot of people have is that the story started simple and got more complex, while many readers were expecting the story to stay simple(like a lot of other deconstruction stories). I say it isn't even the author's fault, there's been a massive boom in slice of life stories in media recently and royalroad especially. Many readers just came in, with other stories coloring their view, and saw this story as something it wasn't trying to be.

What this story Is is a fun romp following a paranoid paper salesman trying to survive through every xianxia trope, from coiling dragon to cradle, all turned up to 11 and turned on their head or taken to their logical conclusions. It's not a traditional slice of life that every reviewer seemed to think and it doesn't deserve to have it's rating lowered because of that.
