Still, Wait For Me

It was a pretty good book up until chapter 350~ or so. The characters were pretty well developed, especially the girls who are interested in MC. MC on the other hand is one of the worst parts of the story, he is a weak-willed and average guy who only accomplishes things due to his foreknowledge. He is also the biggest hypocrite in existence. He time and again spurs the advances of both beautiful and very interesting women for the sake of his one true love from the previous life. This... more>> would've been fine if she was an interesting character, but oh no she is just as bad as those cardboard-cutout random harem girls from 3rd grade xianxia novels. Oh by the way, the reason things didn't work out between them is because he is an utter idiot (not a spoiler as it is seen in the first chapter).

And what do you get at the end ? All these interesting females and their interactions are thrown aside for the sake of some 16 year old kid with no defining characteristics at all. Honestly the worst girl in the book is definitely Xiang Ning, nothing unique other than the fact that she is his previous love. Book becomes awfully boring and pointless after they get together, not to say how awkward were the chapters of him pursing a bloody 14 year old. Honestly if I were to meet this guy in real life, I would bash his head in for the sheer magnitude of his moronic thoughts and actions. He bloody causes some girl to almost kill herself because of his idiotic actions.

I commend author for how extensively he f**ked-up the second part of this story. There is no happy-ending here, only sheer autism of MC. And even from the business management perspective, you don't just leave business to run on their own before a corporate structure is achieved, which takes several years at minimum.

Overall, the MC and Xiang Ning are the worst parts of this story. Other female characters are well thought-out with their personalities, thoughts and goals.. And they feel alive. Xiang Ning on the other hand is a 1-dimensional girl who is "pure". It just confounds me how this novel reached the worst possible resolution out of hundreds of different ways the second part of this novel could've gone. <<less

Emperor’s Domination

This novel is my guilty pleasure. The world building is very interesting, the main character is very OP and side characters are varied (with fair share of both complex and one dimensional characters), however the villains are mostly one dimensional. Story itself isn't very interesting, basically our guy Li Qiye goes around the world, collects the items he left behind in his previous life, smashes the heads of the local experts. He also collects a lot beauties, and then abandons them at the end of the story arc... to get... more>> more beauties in a different place.

He also likes to reminisce about the tragic past, looking all cool while doing it and it almost fools you into thinking that there is actually a good story lol. There are a lot of mysteries as well, and Li Qiye doesn't like to explain anything which also makes you wonder. If the novel was a bit less repetitive and paid more attention to character development, I would give it a 5. It isn't a Mao Ni novel, but it is still pretty fun to read. <<less

The Human Emperor

Great beginning, but slowly falls of a cliff to its death. In the first few hundred chapters, politics play a key role and you're wondering how he will solve problems. But problems can still be seen early on, such as how our MC becomes a certified retard any time he deals with women.

And as you read more and more, tone shifts from a political intrigue with occasional fight scenes to a full blown military simulator. That in itself would be fine, however author is just bad at writing anything with... more>> military. His tactics are idiotic, a simple battle takes 50 chapters to narrate where it should take a maximum of 10. There is a bit too much nationalistic circle jerk.

Also author contradicts his previous writing at every turn, world building is wildly inconsistent, MC's memory from past becomes a joke. MC itself is also a joke unless plot demands he becomes smart, otherwise easily solvable problems by an average IQ guy becomes huge issues for him. The villains get more cartoonish and low IQ with every chapter, and you're left wondering what happened after first 300 chapters for author to f**k it up this bad? <<less

A World Worth Protecting

I have no idea why Er Gen made a very significant genre change to his recent novels. Usually Er Gen books would have good plot, determined MCs, a rich world building, growing characters, and portray a ruthless cultivation world. Last 2 books by him however had a complete change of tone, in which comedy comes to the forefront instead of the plot, and the MC becomes an idiotic manchild.

Both this book as well as A Will Eternal have basically the same MC, same jokes, same sects, same enemies, same f**king... more>> MC even. No longer will you feel that you're exploring a vast cultivation world beset with dangers, instead you're reading some slapstick comedy and repetitive boring jokes in a cultivation background. Just NO Er Gen, how can you f**k up this bad after classics like ISSTH and especially Renegade Immortal? ISSTH also had a funny protagonist, but that was protagonist done right and there was a serious plot afoot as well.

After these last 2 books, its probably only Mao Ni left who is still writing high quality xianxia novels. <<less

Pursuit of the Truth

Meh, its decent. Compared to other novels in NU, this can actually get 4 stars. However the reason I gave 3 stars is that I expected better from Er Gen. Also the fact that he tries too hard to make this story an emotional rollercoaster becomes very annoying.

I've read 900 chapters of this and I was finally hoping :

... more>>
Spoiler

When he wears the mask that makes him lose his emotions, he stops being a f**king crybaby and mans up a bit. But oh no although the mask can make him lose his emotions, it still "can't make the pain in his heart disappear". This MC annoys me endlessly, he is more similar to a pu**y rather than the "devil" as this novel would have you believe.

[collapse]

Also the plots are very forced, some idiotic sh*t happens so MC has to go somewhere. It was fine the first few times but when this is used every time to change a setting, it really makes you think if the author really couldn't think anything better?

There are some well executed plots and mystery as well, however it is drowned by the other parts of the story. If I were to rank it amongst Er Gen's work, it would be :

Renegade Immortal > I Shall Seal the Heavens > A Will Eternal > Pursuit of the Truth

Quality of Pursuit of Truth and A Will Eternal is similar, with this book being a bit worse overall while A Will Eternal sh*ts the bed after the midpoint of the story. <<less

The Novel’s Extra
July 17, 2019

It started out very good. The first arc, also known as the cube arc was full of character development and interactions, and our MC using his powers in a creative way. There was also a cute little romance going on the side.

But after the cube arc, things start to go down hill. Side characters get little screen time and almost no character development, story becomes very boring and cliche, especially in the Tower arc. It is also important to point out that MC becomes very OP very fast, which kills... more>> any chance of a good plot progression. As we read further, the plot moves at light speed, and the plot itself is also pretty crappy with generic tropes. I would give this a 5 star for the first 150~ chapters, and 1.5 star for the rest of the chapters. I will average it around 3 stars because the beginning was indeed exceptional. <<less

City of Sin

One important thing to mention, this book is a hardcore tragedy, has a rushed ending, and a healthy dose of NTR. The reason I gave it 3 stars is that I have a dislike for tragedies, the ending that really just f**ked things up and my dislike for Richard as a MC. I believe the author just wanted to finish the book, because there was enough content for another 500 chapters minimum if he decided to continue. So you're just left with tons of unresolved plot points, and some of... more>> these are very bloody important relating to the main love interest of the MC. Also the MC's power progression just skyrockets in the last 50 chapters nearing the ending, and he becomes really powerful without any buildup similar to ending of many chinese novels.

As for why this book is a tragedy :
Spoiler

All the women who end up liking the MC have a tragic end. For example Dragon Mage Lina didn't even get to talk about her feelings about Richard before she was killed. Alice also died. And the worst of all is Flowsand. Partway through the story, she leaves Richard to go to "The Darkness". Near the end, we realize that the time flow in the darkness is very different, and by the time he reaches there to find her, it has already been 3000 years and she is dead. And even after death, it is implied that Faceless is Flowsand, and is trying to protect Richard by becoming a Guardian of Eternal Dragon. And at the end she also leaves. Sacrificing everything of her just to protect this ungrateful sh*thead, and richard does nothing. At that point, he is powerful and can easily find hundreds of top level sacrifices for the eternal dragon in order to get her back, but nothing. Just this horribly sad and tragic ending
