One of my favorite novels here and it hurts to see the price per chapter. *sighs* Wait time for my new Exploooosion Magic. O crucible which melts my soul, scream forth from the depths of the abyss and engulf my enemies in a crimson wave! Pierce trough, the black clouds of Heaven and Earth! EXPLOSION!
A good cross over story, a bit on the slow side, but good. The MC (so far up to chapter 72) is as of yet not the cliche OP cultivator, although it is slowly building up to that. He is still actually very weak. His skills as a botanist have definitely helped him, but not overly so. He is slowly building his expertise in that field as well. Perhaps the most annoying thing is he is only gaining enemies and not getting rid of them. There is glaring plot armor, but it is not too bad. Overall, I enjoy this novel. I like the MC, even if other characters are soon forgotten or ignored. He may be somewhat mild mannered and not very exciting, but he is still a decent character.
this was one of my most anticipated novel to finish. Everything from the beginning til almost the end was an instant classic for me. I had plans to re-read this novel another 4-5 times but the ending...is just too awful. its so bad that I regret ever reading any of the previous chapters. Please do not waste your time reading this novel, the author is a despicable troll.
To start the review off, I will say that this the same author who wrote "Strongest Abandoned Son", so if you read my review on that, you'll get the same gist of this review. Protagonist was one of the world's best botanists in an alternate modern earth. He dies and is reincarnated into a new world of cultivation. It must be the author's preference to take the plot really, really slow because it's the same deal as his other work, "Strongest Abandoned Son", the cultivation aspect in this novel is incredibly slow in comparison to your run-of-the-mill Xianxia novel. Forty-two chapters in and the protagonist has barely grazed cultivation. The first forty chapters are nothing but world building, political conflict, and starting exposition to the world around him. Barely any actual progress in the cultivation aspect, which is the same deal in his other novel that is being translated here in this site. His world building is fine, but the author has a habit of running around the issue in some areas. For instance, the world that the protagonist reincarnates into is a world where technology exists (cars and machines) but he keeps it purposefully vague. What era of technology? Why hide the setting you created and just ignore it? Only to use it in the beginning when you needed it? I'd say a hundred chapters in is a good point to see if the story and the characters become endearing and fleshed out. Forty-two chapters in I can tell you that the main character is nothing special and thus far, the world around him is not the type to pull you (enchanting, mystical, mysterious, etc) in and keep you around. It's not bad, but it isn't good. Average. We'll see how this plays out in the future, but I'm doubting it. The story, world, and characters are simply the textbook definition of "okay". Apparently his works are popular considering he has made 1,656,627 dollars in royalties. https://wwyxhqc.wordpress.com/2017/04/30/richest-chinese-webnovel-author-ranking-2016/ Which in turn makes me question how this is possible. Am I reading the wrong novels? Nevertheless, my opinion is that if you must read anything by Goose Five (in this site), it should be this. Strongest Abandoned Fart is another beast in and of itself and you could never make me read it again.
I wrote another review saying how sad I felt because I couldn't read a novel I like so much properly. I stated that quidian promised no pay wall and I'm sorry if you want to fool yourselves saying that this isn't one. The level of shamelessnes that quidian shows is off the charts and I will repet even in The novels you publicize you won't find a thicker face. Let me make this clear you ain't in China anymore your reputation took a blow wich in occideny means you can't be trusted so your actions drop have a nice day and start doing what you promise.
WTH? my comment was deleted ? I just said the truth in a single sentence and now they deleted it , i even praised them i just said "Promises are meant to be broken, VERY GOOD JOB "_____" showing what a thick face really means" I left it blank so that so that they won't delete it again, maybe they'll just block my account now LOL....
