*Squints at the cover* nvm nvm. Face smacking novels can never go wrong. Well except if it gets very racist *cough* superstar *cough* looking forward to this novel. Here's a balanced out rating till i get to read the real stuff.

I think the synopsis is a let down. I mean, its so short and there isn't much information. I hope they'll add more love stories on this application.


i bet it's a guy with an encyclopedia in his head and whatever he reads that is true goes into his encyclopedia. mic dropped huuuuh. please have a smart mc.


Not really review but cover of this novel is erm ... you can compare with pursuing immortality . Well just for exp......................................................


Lin Fan is this same with Lin Fan of The Strongest System?? Well if it is definitely looking forward on this one considering TSS. Giving it 5 star just to show my support on this one.


When I first read this, the thing that instantly popped into my mind was [I really am a superstar]. I enjoyed it in the beginning as I didn’t really have much expectations, however, the story just got blander and blander. Pace is a little too fast for me, to be more specific, I personally feel that the MC is going through too much knowledge way too fast. And each one of the skills he gets is annoyingly bad or unserious. While it may be cool to speak to dogs, cook addicting food, read a person’s fate, in the end, I don’t really see the direction this story wants to go. Other than the overly stated ‘become the great master Lin’. I mean, what does the MC get out of it? In the beginning, he is poor and in business city ShangHai. But by by the time I read a few chapters in, it’s like he just wants to be lazy and not work, pushing it off on reasons such as ‘I don’t care about fame nor fortune’. The side characters other are 2D. Other than their intro chapters where we barely get to know them, they just become the cheerleaders, knowledge providers, or little brother collection pieces... Now for those who don’t like IRAS, I’m not saying it’s the best novel in the world, but at least compared to Lin Fan, Zhang Ye actually has a goal! It may get side tracked or put aside for some faceslaping/romance, but the ultimate end goal is still to become a world famous celebrity (perhaps even the number one). One other point is that all the antagonists or ‘cannon fodder’ characters all had their IQs lowered to make the MC look smarter. An example: News report: Cloud street has 200% sales increase since MC moved in. Realtor A: let’s increase everyone’s rental fees the second time this year by 100%! That’s a smart move, the shop owners definitely won’t riot... MC + party: We resist! If you don’t take it back, we will leave this place! Realtor A + Company: let them move, it’s not like MC is the reason for the sales increase.... #please look at the news report!!! In the end, I’m not saying people absolutely won’t enjoy this, but I was most certainly unsatisfied with it’s presentation.


Because it is Lin Fan i Up-Vote ! Go The Strongest System Lin Fan is now everywhere! But it also got some similarities with Library of Heaven's Path!


If you like "I'm Really a Superstar" (IRAS), then read this novel. Similar to IRAS, the MC in "A Valiant Life" has a system that allows him to gain new skills, and he relies on these skills to engage in frequent face-smacking. However, compared to IRAS, MC here does not have a strong motivation to be a celebrity- he simply wants to live a better life. In this sense, I sometimes prefer it to IRAS because there is less plagiarizing of well-known poems, stories and shows (or rather, the focus is not on plagiarizing). "A Valiant Life" is suitable for light reading at the end of the day when you want to relax and unwind, and don't want to care about dense texts, cliffhangers, cultivation or revenge-based plots.


This novel has had nearly enough votes to get published for about 3 weeks now but it keeps getting surpassed by all the stuff around it and I hope we can continue keeping this one on the voting page and not published because that's pretty funny to me.

Here is my version of a teaser/summary of this novel. Lin Fan is a struggling graduate in Shanghai til the day he got his hands on huge book filled with blank pages. Now he has got an almight encyclopedia in his head that allows him to make the most addictive heavenly scallion pancakes and the ultimate fortune telling skills but this is just a tip of the iceberg. Read on and accompany him as he struggles to get enough points to unveil chapters, meet new friends, smack some bragging belittling people's faces and raise to the top.


You guys think that this is a bad novel, right? Seeing that it took so long for it to get voted, and the cover doesn't look that interesting, you're gonna regret not reading this soon. This is a good novel, that can crack you up everytime. Don't judge a book by its cover. ;)

Bravo on the synopsis! Couldn't have made the plot any more clear.


All of you who didn't vote please step out. I promise not to hurt you guys too much. A ****** slap will do. Maybe! And couple of kicks. A great story and good plot and you guys were blind not to vote for it. Great read.
