Is there an industry somewhere in China which specializes in writing novels with 40+ interesting and fun to read chapters, only to massively deteriorate befor reaching chapter 60?
This novel has a good start and the intro is quite well done, especially the few lectures about life and theology are a nice and refreshing touch.
The onlc character to develop is the MC but that is alright. The MC plotarmour is thick and all other characters interlectually challenged.
- MC drives Prof. to suicide, but the superior doesn't care and endorses the MC immediately after the Police could not prove his guild, despite him being clearly involved.
- MC practically forces 4 people (criminal hacker masterminds) to invest in his company, with very flimsical reasoning, one refuses and dies in a car accident after leaving the meeting and the other 3 pay the money and never appear again.
But this novel stopped to be worthwhile for me after the story becomes a fantasy-wish fulfillment type with slapping down foreigners and foreign companies, playing lazy excentric boss baby and generally making an ass of oneself just because he can.
Worse, moral and logical thinking are completely obsolety as well as laws. It is like the MC is playing untouchable in a sandbox. No consequence, no opposition, no real thought but into story development.
At this point even the USB is unnecessary. It is a nice to have after less than 50 chapters.
Maybe if the author would show more of the motives and underlying reasons behind the MC actions there would be a way to save this, but a few sentences about his parents are not it. Especially because they have not been mentioned at all beforehand.
In the end this novel is badly planned, illogical and very superficial. Even the basic idea of the USB is almost comically badly thought out. The line between Fantasy and science fiction is blurry and the author does not have a clue about those.
Example: Can pull stuff from Oasis and not Endgame. Clear line, but Ironman movies? Stuff like super drugs from the furure are okay, but Tonys stuff is not. Pokemon detective works? Like hell.
Do not recommend.
