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.
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?
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.
>the superstar singer girl who is on the stage to calm down the soldier
I really like to know how much readers will remain after they read the translated? Translator's state of mind, too.
"Is the Great Dao which is achieved through suspicions, plots, and slaughters, really the truth behind the heavenly laws?"
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..
.. 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
It's Qidian's novel. But as you may see, Qidian does not translate this novel itself.
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.
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..
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.
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.
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.
the very first chapter. Drop any reason out, accept whathappen-is-whathappen, and enjoy the rest.
