I have read a lot of CN novel translations and have become jaded by the recurring tropes. This novel is a breath of fresh air with its easygoing vibe and slight undertone of mystery. Reading a chapter of this is a highlight of my day. So Translators and Editors keep up the EXCELLENT Work! I was sad when the previous translators went MIA and was overjoyed when it was picked up. This story is one of the reasons I am grateful that Qidian started on the translating scene.

This story is not your typical "you look down on me so i kill your entire 18 generatiôns" you rarely see the mc fight. This storÿ is more about the political balance and scheming. The character development is the best thing in this novel. (It's TTNH level imo). The world building is 3.5 it gives you what you need to know: No more, No less. The start is slower than TTNH but quicker than ZTJ. If you enjoy visualizing the novels you read this is good. If you enjoy heavy actiôn then this isn't for you. You should try it out either way tbh

Normal Release Schedule - 2 chapters on every weekdays/ no releases on weekends. Hao Ren, an ordinary university student, saved a little girl who fell from the sky. By accident, he swallowed a "candy" that fell off of that girl's body and somehow became the Dragon King's son-in-law...... His life was turned upside-down from that point on. There were dragons in this world? And they are living side-by-side with humans? Ancient Chinese Mythologies really happened? Hao Ren got to experience a new world that was hidden from ordinary humans. Despite the thrills that came with the new discovery, there were challenges along the way. He thought his easy life as the Dragon King's son-in-law was going to be chill and gucci, but conspiracies and undercurrents were coming his way. TL Notes: this novel was written quite a while back, and its statistic isn't as great as some of the newer novels. However, the storyline is great, and the development of characters and emotions between them are the highlights of the novel. I read this novel more than three times, and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

He received a genetic score of 28... completely disqualifying him from applying to military college! He helped deliver a friend's love letter... and fell into a lake becoming infamous for dying for love! His very first gift... warped him into a brutal training simulation! However he perserved through all these trials! Our Dear Student Wang Zheng has finally started his lucky(?) university life! This is the song of a blood boiling and exciting storm! The most ferocious and heated mecha adventure around is finally here! TL Note: This is a novel about doing the impossible, seeing the invisible. Follow along for a ride across the universe! TL;DR: Not Shakespeare, not complex, but fun and easy to read. Come support! As the translator, I've enjoyed translating this novel and I hope to bring the essence of what the author has tried to portray into the chapters you will read. To sum it up in 3 words: Mechs! Explosions! Science! To be perfectly honest, this novel is about your typically overpowered protagonist who does get looked down from time to time but always overcomes the odds with his own special power. He's abit more mature having grown up on his own and just a littttttttle bit dense. Although it always ends up with him winning, it always happens in an interesting (subjective) and fun way that makes me enjoy reading this. The novel has elements of lighthearted comedy from time to time and I do chuckle at how direct the humor is. It's not as smart as say WMW nor does it weave an intricate story much like Ergen's novels. More importantly, its fun and it doesn't try to hide it.

I want to marry a chick that's not too pretty, have a cute baby, and lead a stable life!" This book is a casual novel that introduces various Chinese traditional customs, as well as Buddhist ones.

I've read until around 40 chapters in English and some raws, but not on Qidian (look up on NU for previous tl). - Only 568 chapters, so it's considered extremely short to invest your precious time. Read it if you have spare time, like the premise, or already read every other novels. - Not a cultivation focused novel, more like political slice of life. - Slow paced, but intelligent story. And by intelligent, I mean, even antagonist have a proper background & course of actions, not just mindless brute. - It is a harem. Not just a harem because someone is peerless beauty capable of destroying nations, but because they have a good character & skillset.

First off, Joy Of Life is a novel. It has the pacing, characterization, and plotting of a novel. If you come in expecting the usual face-slapping webnovel trash, you'll be disappointed. No, lie down, grab a cup of tea, and properly savor this. Characterization is where Joy of Life shines. The enemies feel like real people, with their own goals, values, and interests. Hell, some of 'em go on to become friends! As for plotting and action, it's well done. Fight scenes feel tense, the protagonist gets his badass moments, and generally nothing feels too gunky and overdone. If I have one complaint, it's that Joy of Life's protagonist--it's hard to pinpoint what he wants, really. Who is he? What are his goals? The emotional drive of the story, or at least the protagonist's contribution to it, can seem hollow sometimes. In short, this story is a 5/5 by the standards of webnovels, but as a serious novel...it's good, but nowhere near great.

Surely one of the best in the novels currently being translated, I have always liked reading Mao Ni's work's, although it seems a little slow paced,but this is exactly the charm of the novel. Looking forward to future chapters

The MC hypocrisy goes deep and the many plotholes despite a good beginning. I just don’t understand why it’s viewed so highly. Though I am big fan of the Author you gotta admit for a one of his first works, it’s quite flawed

Enlightened_Lord
Enlightened_LordLv6Enlightened_Lord

This novel is No doubts the best written translated CN novel out there , although there is cultivation it by no means make the MC a one man army . This novel focus more on the interactions between the MC and the Highly interesting and intriguing cast of characters , making it depends more on wit and cunning rather than brute force like most otger CN novels with a very nice and fitting world background. Please take in consideration that this is rather the slow paced novel since story starts out from MC child days . Overall this is a great novel and for those of you averse to the harem tag , Fear not the harem is extremely well implemented and nothing feels more natural nor it is forced with unrivalled beauties wanting the MCs babies left and right.

I have not even started reading this book but I have been looking for it for so long so I am giving it 5 stars. Thanks Ficool. After seeing the movie on YouTube and not been able to complete it I have been on a craze to read the novel. The plot is earth-quackingly amazing if that is a thing. The plot diverts and twists and still has a smooth flow and wonderful transition. After experiencing this I realised that nothing is predictable because this has blown my mind.

Unique transmigration novel with unique characters (MC as well as several side characters). I don't clearly understand why everyone wants character development in a novel but I like most of the novels with unique characters and their interactions. By the way this novel has one of the most intriguing interactions.
