Jin Rou wanted to be a cultivator who defied the heavens, and surpassed all limits.
Unfortunately for him, he died, and now I’m stuck here. Arrogant young masters? Heavenly tribulations? Cultivating for days on end, then getting into life or death battles?
Yeah, no thanks. I'm getting out of here.
In which a transmigrator decides that the only winning move is not to play.

Normally I don't like these Xianxia style novels as i think they are pretty nonsensical and don't understand the appeal. However this seems to be a cultivation story for people who don't like cultivation stories.
The main character immediatle after being Isekaied decides to nope out on the sect his host body had joined and decided to start a farm.
So far there have been no young masters or legendary phoenix's or spirit tiger or any such nonsense.
The main character has used what little he learned to be a super powered farmer, and so far its been a fairly chill slice of life style story.
Not much so far in the way of an overarching plot or many side characters, but its been a fun read so far. I hope the author will continue to develop the world so that things do not get stale. Now that things are fairly established the story needs to get a bit more meat on its bones.
The chapters are fairly short so I can recomed you give it a try to see if you like it, I feel like its a pretty comfortable story so far with plenty of room to grow.
Final review - tl;dr: read volume one - it's excellent. Most of the 5 star reviews were done during volume 1 - so you can use thay as a pretty good indication of its quality. Volume 2 is essentially just a series of side stories and no main story progression, so unless you like that kind of thing, stop at volume 1.
I found volume one to be excellent. Great pacing, great comedy, minimal nonsense. Really really enjoyed it.
Then volume 1 ended and volume 2 started. Since then, it's been constant perspective changes and very little depth (or progress) to the story. I'll stick with it for the moment, but I'm definitely not excited about new chapter releases anymore.

and... No real change. There were a couple interesting chapters, but quite honestly I'm struggling to see the point of volume 2. There seems to be a huge focus on Bi De (and to a lesser extent, the other side characters). There's very little focus on the MC and his story.
I'll come back in a month to see if the story has improved - if not, I'll be dropping it (much to my disappointment).
No change from the above review. Constant side stories and perspective changes. No progression of (what I assume to be) the main story. Very little written from the MC's perspective.
Tbh I'm becoming less and less excited to read new updates as they come out... I'm just waiting for the plot to start again and slogging through all this slice of life stuff you keep writing. My mindset is why rush to read a chapter when it's the same stuff I got last chapter? The last dozen chapters even?
There's a lot of stuff technically happening, but because I'm so bored by constantly getting similar chapters it feels like there is nothing happening. I might put this on the back burner for a good long while; At least until I'm confident you've probably already included the sect and ancestestry parts.
And btw, I hope you don't think I'm saying this just to complain. My intentions are to outline why I'm struggling to enjoy the story right now, and what needs to be done to fix it for this one reader. There's a balance between slice of life and plot for readers who don't like slice of life just for the sake of it, and you're not getting that balance right currently.
I love the characters and theme enough to have gotten me through 100 chapters (And congrats on that btw). It's just the one aspect that makes this a bit of a chore for someone following chapter by chapter. It's hard to feel excited when it's the same same slice of life filler as the last dozen chapters.
I approached the Blue Box. Lost in my cultivation, continuing to the next level of power greedily, I was struck by the Gray Box. I was stuck, and couldn't move forward.
Bi Di stood perched on the fence, blocking my path ahead. The Next Chapter button out of reach.
I cried softly.
This was a breath of fresh air, and I love it to bits despite just having found it. The humor is grand and the interactions between characters feels natural and while reading it, there were few times I did Not have a goofy smile on my face. So many Xianxia stories have face slapping and constant pushing to be stronger, while few look at the other side of cultivation, that of comprehension and simply being at peace/one with the world. I highly recommend anyone to try it out!
I really enjoyed reading this, and can't wait for more!
The pacing of the story is well done. Slow enough to build the world, but fast enough you're not reading a chapter dedicated to bowel movements like some "founder of lit rpg" *cough* Kong *cough* might write. It is clear the writer is having fun while telling an interesting story. The characters are realistic for the setting and the break from the Young Master trope is good enough to pull and keep my interest. The grammar is easy to read with few if any mistakes. It reads like its been edited at least a few times. Already you can see future plot threads planted throughout these early chapters. The story does jump between characters, but the author does it smoothly, and I do not find myself losing track of what is going on moment to moment like stories. Really what I am trying to say with all this is take a moment of your day and give this story a shot.
It is my hope the author takes the time to publish because between the grammar and story it is better than some of the stuff i've seen on Amazon!
An extremly entartaining story, very light-hearted and fun. I love Big D/ Bi de, and the relationship between Jin and
is just so cute! This is a very nice breath of fresh air, and for sure, i'll continue reading this.
Thanks for writing such a nice little book, Casualfarmer!
Honestly I'm not sure that we are really deep enough to call this a parody of the cultivation genre but it is a great laugh. The farm is just an awesome alternative sect of his own and the disciple characters are just the best. Some of the more intelligent side characters could use some more fleshing out but it is early in the story. I have to say so far I am hooked and can't wait for the next chapter to come..
I usually despise cultivation stories; finding them dull, boring, and highly repetitive.
This Author has certainly knocked his summary out of the park; something that would often turn me away did its job, drew me in, and fed my curiosity.
I adore the take on cultivation in this Novel and highly recommend it to everyone to give it a shot.
Well Done Author!!! Well Done!!!
Pretty sure this review will receive a massive amount of downvote because i don't give 5 stars to this popular book but even if many will scream in their head that this kind of story is simply not for me, I disagree and simply noticed major flaws impossible to overlook.
First thing first, this story is well writen. The author make enough effort with each chapter to keep the quality above average compared to all the others of this website.
Second, i really enjoyed the first book. As i said, even if everthing is slow paced with a story being a kind of slice of life with almost no fight, i don't care. Watching the MC create and develop his farm with his animals was interesting and heartwarming. I stopped and waited for more chapters in the second volume to be out before rereading everything.
The second reading of the first book was just as enjoyable so the deception was huge when i reached the second book.
This book is simply flawed. Not better way to say it. This is what happens when characters instead of driving the plot forward simply replace the plot.
First major flaw, the constant change of POV. I like change of POV, it give contrast and is a nice change of pace but not when it's constant. It's simple, the character the least represented is the MC. We have the POV of every other characters with their boring adventure mostly not even in direct relation with the MC or the main plot while Jin and his wife are mostly absent.
Some of the fans of this story will contradict me and say that it gives depth to the story and it can be true for some of these mini story with secondary characters as their focus but clearly not for the majority. At one point, i simply fast read through a few of these chapters without any trouble to understand what was happening after.
If a part of the story is without the mc as its focus, without any direct relation with the plot and can be simply skipped without any consequence then it has a simple name.
It's a filler.
And this book is so filled with filler that it impede the main plot.
It becomes almost comical how slow the pace of the events are with all these constant change of POV to further develop secondary character with little interest and importance to the story.
So we are forced to witness how the man charged with finding Jin roam around the province where Jin is while making a mistake just before truly finding him. The reader knows where Jin is, so there is little interest in reading four pages of reflexion of the man to explain why he goes the wrong way especially if it is the third time it happens. I waq honestly eager to find out between Jin and this man but after nearly 50 chapters of wait without any result, my interest has fade away like my interest in this story.
I truly hope the author simply got a little overexcited with his characters and didn't forget that a story needs a true plot that goes forward. It needs stakes, conflicts (not necessarily physical) to truly exist. Having a large rooster of characters is nice but it is not enough and shouldn't take priority over the main plot.
If this was an attempt to raise the number of chapters for your patreons, then it needs to stop before more former fan of this story gets fed up with your book.
