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.

Honestly one of the best funny cultivation reads

Reviewed at: ROUS

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..

Great character dynamic

Reviewed at: v2c17: Still

I really enjoy the character dynamics in this novel. For example I like how Jin and his 'deciples' interact.

Also the feeling this novel gives me is very warm and the new chapters never fail to fill me with a bit of wholesomeness.

tl;dr: read book, feel good; me give many star.

Probably the best chicken-themed book on the site

Reviewed at: Vol 2 Chapter 1: Full Steam Ahead

I started reading this due to confusion - why the hell was there suddenly a chicken book at the top of the best rated section?

Turns out it's a really fucking good chicken book.  Slice of life, but actually wholesome without feeling grindy or meaningless.  Such books often focus on the results and achievements, which leaves the events of the book stretched or empty feeling.  This book revels instead in the simple joys of life, and pulls it off excellently.

Read the first chapter; it'll give you a good idea of if you'll like the book.

That chicken is a majestic beast.

Reviewed at: Chapter 26: Two Pig Open Sleigh

My only disapointment was catching up to the releases and not having more to read. 

I love the characters, the pacing is good. tension happens even with the slice of life feel it has, and that chicken..... A farm mascot has a better character ark in under 160 pages than what some finished books give their main protaganists.

UPDATE

I think most readers can agree that Volume 1 was truly exceptional and well written.  It did a great job of introducing interesting characters and showcasing their growth.  There was also a cohesive story arc with Jin starting from nothing and struggling to establish both a farm and an eclectic family to call his own.  Definitely a 5 out 5 in my opinion.

Unfortunately, Volume 2 has devolved into a meandering slice of life with no clear story arc and a barrage of shifting POVs.  It’s also sickly sweet with little to no threat to the characters, which I suppose many people interpret as being “wholesome”.  I guess, if you overlook the erotic tone developing between characters with hints at a possible ménage à trois between a married couple and a teenager.  The writing is still good, but the lack of story is losing me.  More like a 3 out of 5 compared to the first volume.

***

I have to admit, the title threw me off at first.  I thought this story would be about someone possessing a chicken.  Interesting and novel, but silly to the extreme.  Instead, it focuses on a modern soul displaced in time and spaced into the body of a weak human cultivator named Jin.  While that sounds pretty standard Isekia, what follows is something really special.

The start is a bit abrupt and gives the main character a different tone from the rest of the book, but it gets the point across.  Instead of following the typical path of study and combat, Jin immediately leaves his prestigious school.  What’s his big plan?  Well, to go buy a farm where nobody will look for him.  Heartwarming hilarity ensures as Jin devotes his full cultivation potential into becoming the best and most benevolent farmer the locals and maybe even the world has ever seen.

Shocking for RoyalRoad, Volume 1 is completed and ready to read.  It’s a fantastic, cohesive story following Jin and his efforts to create his own slice of paradise in a world filled with spirit animals and cultivators.  Volume 2 continues by exploring each character as Jin’s farm and family grows.  There are many adventures and tribulations, with the title chicken going on his own journey of discovery.  Very well written, but slower and less focused than the first volume.

My hope is the story pacing picks up and introduces some legitimate threats to Jin, his farm, and his family.  I love the bonding and growth arcs between all the characters, but the story needs some real stakes and Jin needs to be challenged to grow.  I’m talking a Monsanto level threat coming in to take what they see as easy pickings.  Some fans will hate this though, maybe wanting to preserve the overall tone as a bedtime story you can read to kids.  To them I say the setting is still in an Xianxia world of ruthless martial artists.  Death and violence are a given.

Regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed reading everything so far and look forward to what comes next.  My thanks to author for making his work free on RoyalRoad, and especially for not hiding dozens of chapters behind a paywall.  Highly recommended!

Do not read the synopsis

 

Definitely a book that teaches you not to judge by it's cover. Justafarmer already finished the first book and seems to have a lot more planned out! The story doesn't jump around and the MC doesn't have any random OP fights. In fact, this story is more a romantic comedy with flashes of action that the MC tries to be running from.

 

This is the story of a man sent to another world who just wants to make his own slice of paradise. 

 

PS: author corrects his grammar so 8/10 there for you nazis out there

Yay my xianxia fix is filled finally

Reviewed at: Winnie the Poo

Story is a good refreshing take on the genre it has good grammer and writing which makes it refreshing and easy to read. It also is quite funny and the characters are quite good and likeable no real annoyances yet. 

What more could you ask for really I'd recommend it to read.

This is just funny and relaxing. The xianxia animals are funny, and I enjoy the descriptions of enjoying his life. I do hope he flies under the radar of the big sects, especially in comedic ways, like mistaken identity and slapstick kind of stuff.

He worries about power corrupting him, he's afraid of that. This is a very human and normal fear to have, and makes him different from the usually sociopathic xianxia character. I like how the traditional xianxia characters are all animals, it takes away some of the tension in the battles, so they're more enjoyable. 

 

This is like a nice cup of tea. Aaaahhhh. Thanks

Well, it is but it isn't xanxia

Reviewed at: The First Flakes

I'm going to promote one of the most endearing stories I've had the pleasure of reading recently. The blurb is accurate, the MC says (edited) stuff this barely veiled chaos, I choose to be a farmer. And it is so good! I'm not sure what to compare it to, but it is just... wholesome, sweet, funny, a little tension, feel good, like a disney movie eg Ratatouille. No dastardly deeds by the MC, no thinly veiled might makes right makes arsehole behaviour justified. Just ... great. And the other MC, the chicken Bi De? Daaaw

I like how the main character acts normal, no killing, no greed for power. It makes for a very interesting read. The wiriting is very fluid, the dialoge is smooth, and the comedy is witty. I find the information on how some of the farm things work very interesting, like how to grow rice. The chicken is the best part. Overall a very nice read and definitly one for the follow list.
