It's start slow and a bit boring. Nothing fascinating. But after the 1st book, your blood boiled, you qi rotated like hurricane. After 3rd book, you'll sever your mouse and kept pounding on your F5, hoping you might be able to join the greatest of every realms, the F5 sect!

WHAT!? YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IS F5 SECT? Beware Lord Filth's revenge!

OK, I lost a bit of my mind. Some F5 sect's disciple undermined my mind.

... more>> ISSTH is one of the best XianXia. Period.

The cultivation world is wide, wild and cruel. Reading WN is murderous. If you can't read pass the 1st book, you aren't destiny to be in F5 sect and able to enter ISSTH world. Be the lowly mortal as you be.

Only one whose mind is absolutely determined to kill through the path of best XianXia Novel Reading will enjoy. Done. <<less

Recommend IF you finish ALL other good CN ones and waiting for the new chapter. It's early work of the famous writer. Plot is straight. MC is straight. Every characters are straight. Dialogue is straight. Everything is straight.

No twist, no cliff, no unexpected. Highly predictable.

Fighting is darn straight! I stand still, waiting for you hit me, then you wait for my returned strike. Every fights begin with EXACTLY three babbling noises from surrounding lackey, confirm that MC will be defeated misery.

ALL his enemies will boast one or two... more>> sentences before concludes that MC will definitely die. After that .. boom! dong!! kaboom!! .. "IMPOSSIBLE!" exclaim!!!

Every characters please stand still while we change the scene. Thank for your cooperation. <<less

Cult of the Sacred Runes
June 7, 2016
Status: Completed
Spoiler

I read raw, to the final chapter, and want to redeem my lost time!

The first 50 chapters are good. The translation is pretty descend. So I jump from the translated to raw.

However - my heart bleed!!. The plot turns confuse. The illogic arises. Important characters are thrown away, despite being praised highly in the first 100.
His world-shaking master, his overlord-benefactors, his family, his friends, his developing army, his world-chattering rune making ability, etc, etc - all become garbage, not being mentioned again.
Totally disappear, never be seen again.
Even his raped woman simply disappears !!

If that's not disappointed enough, the final act .. all world buildings just simply - disappears.

Author ended his novel. That's all.

So, for you who read TL version, better prepare your mind. Read each chapter/act as it is. Do not expect development. Discard any characters you like. Just focus on what MC *currently* does, then you'll be happy.

Genre of this Novel : Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Martial Arts, Romance, Xuanhuan.
Better delete out : fantasy, romance, martial arts, xuanhuan

Novel title : Cust of sacred Runes?
Author DROPPED the development of the runes around ch.300 .. so, what's next ???

Worst novel ever read.

Pretty slow. Dxxx slow. Lots of nonsense babbling .. errr .. talkative. Especially the supposed-to-be high ranking characters. Even clan leader/elders love to nonsense chitchat and boasting.

Almost all scenes of this babbling generate from from three lackeys. You can skip this three lines without missing anything.

In many scenes, the author forcefully push the world building & people thought down you throat. Swallow obediently or puke out, you choose!

... more>> Well - some babbling and scenes, if being pushed a bit more, will end up as plagiarism!

Reserved 0 star, but the translation quality is so good .. <<less

Against the Gods

Status: c600
A good sample of how bad MC _and_ writer can develop to. It's good only for the first few acts, then keeping snowball downhill. Repeat scene, repeat dialogue, repeat fighting, repeat thought.

Tournament after tournament, just change background.

Good starting plot and goal. Slowly deteriorated to no where. Main protagonist characters keep missing. Most antagonists are thrown in just to increase word count. No role at all, even being as step stone.

The WORST is around ch.500, when he's in Demon Hall something. The fight scene and dialogue is -... more>> waste level at the best. Out of nowhere, ALL antagonists start thinking idiot-ly, act childishly, babbling talk, monkey jump around while MC show his superhigh IQ, super OP, I-see-through-everything. Disgusting to the every words.

DROP.

Last raw (around ch 640, read through NU's spoiler before waste time to read raw), the author has no idea of how to develop the story, thus just throw in thousand of girls to make the harem. Simply as that.

Drop.

WHERE CAN I BUY REGRET MEDICINE?

Spoiler

I really like to know how much readers will remain after they read the translated? Translator's state of mind, too.

Temporary stop at ch.80. (current Tl'ed at 95). As raw is ongoing, the 80th of 450 chapters is almost nothing.

Good plot with NEW idea, good dialogue, good fighting scene. Good Translation. No nonsense characters, No boring copied idea/copy (as in all those generic xianxia).

Worth reading (though I stop, waiting for more chapters).

Average xianxia story. Nothing new.

Average plot, average fight, average antagonists, average dialogue, average protagonists.

Nothing above average, C grade, xianxia. C+ may be a bit too much.

... more>> I may give this title C+ if the author decided that after the MC raped two female antagonists, he raped the male too. But, as the average author, he couldn't. Now this novel is passing those average arcs, he can't change anything. So, stick to this average label.

Well, all average readers, please don't be disappointed by this review. At least, with such average novel like this, we can skip reading and won't miss anything.

Oh, BTW, if author had chance to be around here, please don't take all stars. One is for the translator. Your is only the remain one. <<less

One of the best novel. One of the best translated version. Unlike another top 25 novels(which I give 4/5 max), this one deserve 5/5 in _any_ aspect.

Good original, good translation, clear plot, no overt babbling, reasons behind every MC and protagonists developments.

Good MC, his lover, friends, family and main supporting characters. All has background and reason of WHY they have to do this and that. Even the main antagonists have reason of the why, which, in the end, I don't want them "to be defeated" at all.... more>>

Not only MC has his role, the others as well. They are developing along with MC. TEAMWORK is the main theme, not just MC.

Ha! MC's Father is the great warlord of the greatest clan before become blacksmith, grandfather is [[i_told_you_not]] king, mother is common grass, lover is small rabbit. Which novel has character like this?

What I love most is - family & family's love, true love, team mate, friendship. Best of all - reasons to be the antagonist! Yes, I love the main antagonists. Not one dimension, but real people. Any one who's in her shoe will do the same - destroy the sects, destroy the clans, destroy the world, destroy everything, even you know that it _is_ wrong.

Romantic is slowly developed but very fascinating. Especially the scene which MC comb lil' girl hair under the moon light. Vivid.
In fact, this novel develop around love theme!
Sweet love between the duo, which has to be fight together, hand in hand, so fierce that even death can not break us apart!
Love and understanding between each pairs of supporters push the story.

Spoiler

Misery love is the causes of all trouble of the story

[collapse]

The above 2 paragraphs rarely (non?) exist in another novel. The novel is not long. Though the translation's rather slow - but you can read the the translated version by GG, the great sensei. Quality is not as human, but 80-90%, because the author use the simple-to-read-and-translated-word, and sentence, but when combined to be the story : magnificent! SEVEN MAGNIFICENT!

BTW, I love Shrek so much that see it over 10 times. The theme song is also my ring phone. Do you love Shrek?

Hahahaha... right, Shrek.

Last: I feel deeply sorry for readers who halfway quit this milestone novel, or give it 2-3 stars. You miss something great.This novel is the first one that force me to mtl read until end chaper. No regret at all.

Only fly in this novel. It's slowly translated!! Cliff hanger to the extreme. <<less

FIVE STARS for the world building arc. Then gradually drops from the sky, pass MC, sinks to ocean floor around c90, after MC gang safely run away from exploding volcano.

Boring of repeated fighting actions started to accumulated. Poor class harem is creeping in and kick away the canned romantic. Predicatable dialogue and next scene. So, after 100th ch, nothing left.

Drop is the final resolution.

World of Cultivation
June 16, 2016
Status: Completed
Spoiler

One of the best xianxia. Unlike other generic kill-loot-kill-loot-cycle MC with the mountain-thick plot armor. MC does no butchering until ch.150+. Sorry for readers who love blood bath.

MC is the farmer.

He develops himself very slowly with humor/twist view of the world. As he started from being the poor farmer, his ultimate goal is : to be the greatest farmer of the world. But! his luck is simply 'too bad'.

His masters/sect force him to be swordmaster.
His enemies also force/lure/decieve him to be the best jack of all threads, either dan making, cultivating, sword arts, etc. But, his goal is still the same : "Please let me survive and let mebe the greatest farmer of the world!".

ROTFL. He has to fight back furiously, to survice and be greatest farmer. Every time he survives, but fails from his goal every time. So the path to be the greatest farmer drips farther and farther away. Slowly, he fails in to his enemy's plot .. and become the greatest warrior and master of all threads, except one. He is not the greatest farmer anymore. Can't be too.

[collapse]
... more>>Plot is slow. World is slow. But full of humor.

One fly in the ointment.
Spoiler

So many characters!! Especially in the last half of the novel. Some minor & insignificant characters were mentioned bit here, bit there, in the boring scene. Suddenly! they became the pivot! You have to reread previous chapters again ..

[collapse]

Best of all: there's author's talk at the end of each chapter. Some may not like it, but I do.

Expand my Chinese culture a lot. <<less

Start like the sacred bamboo, before this bamboo turn in to marihuanna smoking tube! Very thick plot army. Main role of the sex dolls is - protecting the childish MC in war, waiting for his harassment in peace time, while plot develop.

Fighting scene is better that so-so level. Dialogue is very boring, almost stealing from generic stories which floating in the other novel.

Drop it without any regret.

My Wife is a Beautiful CEO

Status: Completed
Don't give the star rating until you read past the 120th - 150th chapter! Because you'll give 1.0/5.0 max.

... more>>
Spoiler

Harem, sex, erotic, intercourse, 18+, cheating, mafia, blood bath, gang fight, (boring) white collar love&cheat in business, boasting hi-so life style, overt OP MC who drive BMW at 240 km/hr, flat-character MC female who slowly drive bentley, side lover girl who becomes biggest mafia boss, etc, etc.

In short, almost sub-average story & plot line.

However, once past this boring (???) first few acts (with skipped reading), you will exclaim "WTF deze 'tory!" and push in the reverse gear to start reading again.

Then, this erotics story becomes dark romantic. Its mafia and gang fight plot line turns into wuxia fight & xianxia duel & massacre in the metropolis (??!!??); business conflict into family & generation's conflict ; the harem to His Majesty the Emperor protecting his empress and concubines. Finally - war of the gods, world wide disaster from lost solar energy.

Worth 5.0/5.0 by then.

[collapse]

Don't judge the book by its first few chapters. What you read in the first few 200 chapters is 'almost nonsense' and irrelevant to the main story.

BUT
Spoiler

You're deceived!
It's relevant

Spoiler

The final 10 chapters exposed that the whole story is plotted. Everything that's developed - whether the fuxx-ing by chance between MC and CEO, their love&hate, MC's past dark history, his path to godship & immortal, etc, etc.

All are plotted .. for the out-of-universe reason .. by the lazy immortal who is tired of his work and want to throw the responsibility to someone else.

PLEASE REMEMBER: This novel is not just harem and sex and gang fight.

IT'S XIANXIA and WAR OF GODS. <<less

Worth every sweat and blood you shred while finding the complete novel. The real master piece of Jin Yong. Rumor said the after he finished this series, he couldn't write the new one for over the years.

You can't find wuxia novel that have lots of MCs! Every characters have personality. Even a small character has its say. Each MC has very strong characteristics that'll burn through your eyes, imprint to your heart. You can't be counted as WX reader until finish this one.

Good story. Good plot. Average MC's plot armor. Good characters development. Good fighting act. Good "weapon" development.

At least, there is something as NEW plot to be read. Several cliffs to be hung :D

The one big fly in the oil is - the very first chapter. Drop any reason out, accept whathappen-is-whathappen, and enjoy the rest.

Translation is pretty slow. However, author used easy wording, stressed on story telling instead of idiom. Thus, the mtl version by google sensei is highly readable.

Good translation. Good story BUT not for every one, especially guys who love fast action, kill, cultivate, rape, cultivate, kill, loop, looop, loop.

Lot of dialogue and thought from surrounding chars. Best for slow reading - to appreciate the atmosphere of the story.

The MC is constantly being bullied. Harder and harder. Not until ch.150-160 that we start to get the idea of the reason "why". After these chapters, I feel pity for those who were puppetted to play the role of being the villain.

Worst problem of this story, for... more>> now, is .. will the translation continue?

SIGH. <<less

Ten years! That's why I give this story 5/5. Not many writer can keep on writing for ten years. Also, if there's no something good in the novel, readers and editors will drop it for a long time, instead of creating web site by its theme.

Ten years! So the plot is fragmented & developing according to writer's psycho-socio-economic status of that time. So, NOT recommend to read all the chapters in one swoop. It's better to read it as LMS I, LMS II, LMS III ...

Ten years! Enough... more>> to write 5-6 completed story. Slowly read this novel like that, and you'll get best of the best without paying a single won. <<less

From the Author's rumble

The idiom, 细水长流, literally meaning “thin streams of water will flow for a long time” is often used to describe this type of love. Hoju’s views on that: It’s not a raging waterfall or rapids that overcome and engulf you, like the passionate type of love that is often featured in romance stories and hits us hard, like a waterfall, but love that is demonstrated in small details and over time, grows deeper and deeper, like a thin stream of water that flows gently over a rock,... more>> slowly, over time, cutting a pathway into it without anyone even noticing. A flash flood may come quickly and bowl you over, but that thin stream of water is slow and steady but never lets up until one day, you see it has cut right into the heart of the stone.

Yes! The story is something like the slow, cool, gentle stream flowing through the peaceful flower valley. If your heart yearn for the fast action, exciting scene, exploding drama .. don't pick this novel yet.

Find good tea, sipping slowly while watching calm sunset. Sleep serenely. Walk leisurely through the park. Find some quiet spot to rest your mind. Then, read, slow read. Read like you're enjoying the exotic wine, not like gulping down gallon of the cheap rice alcohol.

Then, all the romances'll be with you. <<less

How many time did you see your favorite horror movies?? How many time were you upset because the plot is not what you expect? How many time do you swear loudly while thinking that if you were THAT character, you'd certainly do better, not idiotic move like that?

This novel is narrated around what you had thought of.

But not in the way you had expected!

... more>> MC were kicked in to the movie, forced to play along the movie's plot and subplot. The price was his life and companions.

At the end of each movie, it reminded you that you just finished watching the same movie but with unexpected viewpoint.

Spoiler, even being told before, or while watching, is next to useless.

Enjoy you movie of your life. But ..

WHAT' THE MEANING OF LIFE? REAL LIFE!!

BTW, I start suspecting those darn Horror Movie Directors. Are they really Aliens? <<less
