A nice change from other novels

Reviewed at: 35. Anomalies

This cultivation story is very funny. A lot of situations are hilarious. It takes cultivation elements from classic novels but makes it funny. The grammar is correct. I hope the story will continue in the same direction. So give it a try.

Extremely good at what it is trying to do

Reviewed at: 38. Family First

This is a comedy of misunderstandings. This type of story by default will strain probability because that's the entire point. There's no deep substance in the Main Character because if there was, there would be no comedy. It's that the MC is so shallow, while everyone attributes genius motivations that makes the comedy of misunderstandings so fun. 

The challenge comes in making the coincidences plausible enough, or funny enough, that the strain doesn't cause the credibility of the entire story to break.

This is one of the best stories doing this I have encountered. If you don't like misunderstandings, then don't read this. The author gave explicit warnings at the beginning. 

The gap between the MC's motivations and how he is perceived is huge, yet there was only really one instance where I felt the strain of probability.

Unique spin on transmigration and misunderstanding tropes

Reviewed at: 35. Anomalies

This story does 2 things and it does 2 things very well

1. Perspective of an "Overpowered MC" and the surroundings reaction to him. I feel that the main reason why people like this genre is mostly due to this and this story executes this perfectly.

2. A larger more intricate plot being moved along by the misunderstandings. This is mainly what convinced me to stay. The OP mc gets boring after a while and authors write themselves into a ditch often as evidenced by all the stories on here that never took after the first 2 arcs.

The story has a likeable MC, an engaging story line that takes you along for a ride and a supporting cast that actually feels like they have a reason to exist. 

All in all great story. I loved binge reading it and massive thanks to LivingSpoon for taking a new spin on genre I love.

This is a novel that has true potential, I've been hooked all the way. I have to mention that one thing I find different, which I appreciate, is the main characters relationship with his parents, as well as his disciple is done well. Better than other Wuxia novels. While this is partially because if the main character, it's a nice change. 

Most main characters are excited to be living a second life, while ignoring everyone around them they focus on cultivation. There is cultivation in this novel but, our main character focuses on more just himself, even strengthening is smaller subordinates (meant for beating up rivals) and I feel like this will allow side characters to be proactive throughout the novel. Which I enjoy, instead on him ignoring everyone for better cultivation.

Edit: On my second and a half reread, still good stuff, noticing smaller things I missed, making it even better. 

The only reason I will not give five stars (for this wuxia) is that the novel seems to update three times (obviously give or take) a week. Most wuxia I know of are daily updates. However, I also feel like the authors writing takes more time then most wuxia novels as there haven't been major plot holes, and the story flows very well. So.. That's a predicament. 

+1/2 for a future yadere

Good Until Chapter 60, then devolves into a mess

Reviewed at: 76. Quite Dangerous

As an indvidual that doesn't enjoy the xianxia genre, I found myself surprisingly pulled into this novel.

The genre in question often involves many things that infuriate me, including:

--terrible overly arrogant main characters who are really just jerks that nobody would like in real life, but for some reason are loved and worshiped as 'alphas'.

--two dimensional villains with no real reason to be bad besides the fact that the MC needs people to 'face slap'. What's their motivation? Where's the morally grey reasoning that drives anyone to choose to do 'evil' and gives depth to these characters? Spoiler: there's never any.

--bland side characters with barely any defining features besides 'I love the MC'

--and last but not least, the nonsensicle cultivation which in an of itself is just lazy writing. It railroads growth and gives flimsy reasoning for EVERYTHING. Motivations, character development, worldbuilding, everything is defined by cultivation, which makes 90% of all xianxia novels copy-pastes of each other.

--and don't even get me started on how they have thousands upon thousands of chapters where practically nothing happens in them, the author only writing them in such a way instead of compiling them into chapters of proper length so they can inflate their numbers, drag the story out, and make more money. Over a thousand chapters for anything is just wrong. 

But I digress.

This novel was great because it touched on these problems, wrote them in and then laughed at how nonsensical they were. How boring cultivation is, how stupid its tropes were etc.

The writing itself wasn't anything special. The LitRPG elements dragged the story down and became a second set of story crutches that drove the story forward instead of writing something original. Onomatopoeia was badly written in with asterisks such as '*CRACK*', grammer problems, perspective changes that occur multiple times within a few paragraphs, and missing words such as 'the' often littered chapters, but it was still fine. Why?

Because it was fun.

The easy going slice-of-life story of a modern white-guy thrust into a xianxia world was both endearing and enjoyable. 

Unfortunately, as the story goes on it begins falling into a trainwreck of a mess that's hard to both understand and read, trapping itself in the very tropes it poked fun of before, such as a random all-out war where you can't tell what's going on at all suddenly appearing out of nowhere, a completely nonsensical villain who for some reason blames the MC for the death of his loved one DESPITE BEING THE ONE THAT KILLED HER HIMSELF, etc.

Other readers have noticed this and have given their criticisms, but I don't think the author was able to take it and has since disappeared without a word. Its been less than a month, but its still worrying. Even if the story isn't good, its never fun seeing a web-serial get abandoned.

So in conclusion, the story is good in the beginning, but develops badly the farther you go into it, but if you're still willing to take the plundge, be wary of an indefinite wait. We don't know when the author will return, if he will at all.

A great fiction. Highly recommended and good for a laugh. It plays on the tropes that this genre is known for while throwing its own spin on it.

The writing is good and the story is a fun read, although you would probably need to have read a few xianxia/reincarnation/system/etc. novels to truly appreciate it. I truly enjoyed it while reading it this weekend :)
