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

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. ISSTH is one of the best XianXia. Period. The cultivation world is wide, wild and... more>> 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

Cult of the Sacred Runes
June 7, 2016
Status: Completed
The first 50 chapters are good. The translation is pretty descend. So I jump from the translated to raw. Then.... !!!!!

... more>>
Spoiler

I read raw, to the final chapter.

[I want to redeem my lost time!!]

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, completelr discarded, never be seen again.
Even his raped woman simply disappears !!

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

Author ended his novel. No reason.

Just end. 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 : Cult of the sacred Runes?

Author DROPPED the development of the runes around ch.300.. so, what's next ???

Worst novel ever read.

[collapse]

27 Jul 2018 :

Two years later and 100+ novels read. Not one in those 100+ novels could snatch this novel's "worst novel ever read" title. <<less

Against the Gods
June 18, 2016
Status: c600
A good sample of how bad MC _and_ writer can develop to. It's good for the first few acts, then keeping rolling downhill.

Repeat scene, repeat dialogue, repeat fighting, repeat thought.

... more>> 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 MC is in Demon Hall something.

The fight scene and dialogue is - waste level at the best.

Out of nowhere, ALL antagonists start thinking idiot-ly, act childishly, babbling talk, monkey jump around; while MC shows his superhigh IQ, super OP, I-see-through-everything. Disgusting to the every words. DROP. In the last raw chapter (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.

Last update : 16 Mar 2018.

After half a year of hiatus, the author recovers and the story continues.. ---

Read it. Love it enough to read google's MTL !! Transmigration to the future, Female MC, hard working MC, social interaction.. That's normal. However, when you combine Gundam with Wuxia and Inter Galactic Starwars and battle and war and Psyche Training and humerous Romance and Boy Love and Army Politics and Traitors.. You get this wonderful novel! ---

There're reasons for the development of MC in every arcs. A... more>> bit of plot armor is acceptable (and require). The dialogue and humor between each characters is very good, almost everyday-like talking, not overrated drama. BEST of all - the female MC is surrounded by good boys, but there is NO harem. The romance is developed slowly and hilarious romantic, as the female MC is very tyranny and cold heart and cruel and ruthless male BOSS since childhood until adult (and no one know that she is not male!). But

Spoiler

the male MC still loves him (her?) despite she (he?) clearly state that he (she??) hates man.
BTW, should we call boy love if the female MC loves the male MC?

[collapse]

Ahhh! Do not expect any romance until ch. 800++

Sorry, NO harem or intercourse or s*x scene at all. BTW, The most hilarious about the characters is that male (assistant) MC.
Spoiler

He is the most beautiful girl of the whole galaxy. He knows that too, and use his peerless beautiful face to unceasingly allure the she-male female MC.

[collapse]

There is school (and inter school) fighting arc, but not boring at all. SOME characters (several) who appear in these arcs are not just the passer-by but pivot in 300-400 chapters later! Such as
Spoiler

>the superstar singer girl who is on the stage to calm down the soldier

[collapse]
>. She is the very boring character that's finally discarded but developed into malignant male MC, 400 ch. Later! This author's style is also applied to some minor and insignificant events too. ---

Some flies in the oil. After Ch. 500, the author (has to?) uses the conflict between China (Federation of Huxia) and Japan (Sunset Empire) and USA/EU (Caesar Empire) as the background (to conform to China government's "suggestion" to novel writers). Bear this in mind and enjoy the rest.

---

Last, the human in this novel lives upto 150-200 year old. The MC is starting from in-uterine fetus, and developing almost day by day. So in the early arc, it's something like manga novel for kids. However, later it become gundam for early teenager, school fighting for the late teenager, war for the grown-up, wuxia for the adult.

BTW, unlike other reincarnation novel, there is reason in this novel : why she was dead; why able to reincarnate & become Mary Sue.

Last word : the novel is not short. Do not expect the good reasons in the first few hundred chapters. A book should not be judge by its cover. <<less

Pretty slow. Dx** 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!

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

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

One Life, One Incarnation – Beautiful Bones

Status: Completed
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

My Disciple Died Yet Again
June 5, 2016
Status: Completed
One of the best xianxia. If you read It's seem as light xianxia novel, it's light novel then. Fun, humorous, joke, love story (very romantic, almost to yaoi/yuri). But it's not. It's pretty serious. MC is the oldmaid from start. Aunt in the middle. Dead in between. She is transfered to another world to safe it from very bad, very powerful guys. Safe your sister! She's just the ordinary aunt! Beside, she has principle ~bottom line~ HUMAN NO KILL. No matter what - NO KILL. How can she save this... more>> world of kill-kill-kill-bribe-decieve-kill-kill_to_ascend_to_heaven? By dying, of course. I give 5/5 to this novel because of the question that the MC ask his (her?) Master in ch.117 (after die again, of course).
Spoiler

"Is the Great Dao which is achieved through suspicions, plots, and slaughters, really the truth behind the heavenly laws?"

[collapse]

THAT question destroys all other xianxia novels to microscopic dust, and shooting this novel to the top most, deserve 100/5 stars. BTW, for now, I re-read this novel for the 4th times. EDIT : 5 Jul 2016
If you -loved- these five xianxia titles, ATG/TDG/TMW/LLS/MGA, which are on the top ten "popular of all time", this novel is definitely NOT for you.

~~~~~~~

New reader, or 1-2 stars reviewers, you should read this novel to the end. The real plot is not what in the first 300 chapters.

There is the reason why the idiot MC have to die idiotly again and again, yet never learn how to be smart. Why protagonists are very smart.

If you can't read pass the first 300, better drop this novel. <<less

Bringing The Farm To Live In Another World

If you, the reader, want to read this novel, throw away your extreme bias first! Reason?

... more>>
Spoiler

The 7, 000++ chapters has its reason. IF there is no readers, this novel would be terminated since the 2000th chapters, right? It continues to the 7, 000+ because the readers like it. No, not you who read the translated English version, but the original Chinese people.

Chinese doesn't read the novel because it's just the novel. They also read idioms, meaning of single word and words, between-the-words and between-the-lines, their cultures and heritages and norms. All these are lost in almost all translation..

So if you do not know any of Ancient Chinese's culture, heritage, literature, norm..

[collapse]

.. this novel is definitely not for you.

Read it (raw) to calm myself down from those action-packed novels. Good novel because..
Spoiler

.. you can drop it anytime without anything lost !

No cliff. No hidden/twist/highlight/cliche. Reading to pass the time. Drop when boring. Pickup again to pass time. You won't lost any of your brain cell to remeber anything in this novel

[collapse]

Can't review what this novel is because it's 7000+ chapters! (and not end yet) ! But want to warn the late comer that if you're not ready to read the MTL version, better stop now. Even if it's translated 2 ch/d, you need 3, 500 days.. Or ten years before it finishes!
Spoiler

It's Qidian's novel. But as you may see, Qidian does not translate this novel itself.

[collapse]

PS: Another notice. In this 7, 000+ chapters novel, each chapter is not short! Around 1500-2000 words/chapter! Read it at your own risk :) <<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.

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).

My Master Disconnected Yet Again
August 30, 2018
Status: c348
Good story. Hilarious. Plot is Ok. All characters are OK. Cook is Ok.

MC is not OK. She's nothing but gluttony ad super lazy woman, road idiot, irresponsible master. Worst of all, she criminally changes all the pretty cute-barbie girls (hundred!) into the rambo-muscle hulk !

Hard to say what's bad as the (original) story is only 300+ chapters. But it's fun..

The story is not the developing of MC (but I think most reader would pray that she'd finally develop some bad habit. At least she should remember her disciple/dao companion name... more>> !!). She almost is Mary Sue from start (it's all because of her utmost laziness that she is not). It's story of stories which are linked together through her and her personal cook/butler. Some story is good, some is bad, but overall is superb.

Enjoy your life and reading this novel while not being eaten by that distinct super lazy parasite.

PS. Good luck that this novel MC has good elder sister who has name. <<less

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]

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.

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 -
Spoiler

the very first chapter. Drop any reason out, accept whathappen-is-whathappen, and enjoy the rest.

[collapse]

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.

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, er**ic, 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 er**ics 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.

[collapse]

PLEASE REMEMBER: This novel is not just harem and s*x and gang fight. IT'S XIANXIA and WAR OF GODS. <<less

Post-’80s Cultivation Journal
November 8, 2016
Status: c335
Good story of pre-modernized rural China, with a bit of daoism & cultivation as the *background*. Story of 7 yo boy who was born in the poorest rural village where rice grain is sold 3 cents a pound. The story _ultra slowly_ tells his life, along with atmosphere of '80 (which like USA/EU of 1940 era!)

Everything evolve around the small village which has no electric, just kerosene lamp and candle, no plumbing water but only running stream. Most luxury entertaining item is 14-inch black&white TV. Very nostalgic.

Not only MC's... more>> life, but tens of village people life too. Do not expect the flying sword or mountain destroying qi. Just the slow life of the people, children, dogs, farmers, aunts, uncles, friends, teacher. Day after day, night after night. Life in the clean and pure village reveals itself to your mind.

If you love Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House series, this novel is for you. If you never read them, should think carefully before click the first chapter.

BTW, this story is written better than the previous.

UPDATE : 24 Feb 2017. Reduce the star.
Spoiler

Seem that the author can't escape from the 'writer block syndrome'. The later chapters become boring and boring and boring. Not 'dao' or 'cultivation' anymore but ordinary novel about tea business.

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. 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... more>> 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

Love, obstacle, romantic, misunderstood, sympathy, hate, misery, laughing, humor, suffering, separating...

In just the short 54 chapters, the writer could put all these emotions, and ended happily ever after.

Start like the sacred bamboo, before this bamboo turn in to marihuanna smoking tube! Very thick plot army. Main role of the s*x 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.
