One of the foulest character designs of Chinese novels. MC doesn't have any expression even when people want to kill him repeatedly. He's always being threatened and targeted yet he is like "meh". Seriously I would've given this negative 3 stars if not for some side characters. Like any typical Chinese fantasy, author has incorporated the MC in the weakest corner of the world with the weakest power and gradually MC climbs up in terms of power and experience. We should expect that MC will also develop his mentality and mature but NO! He's still expressionless. He still carries that "meh" manner. Can you imagine reading over 600 chapters of his air of infallibility?! He has an OP dog as a guardian who is very lazy and not around of him everytime he goes out and a metal puppet which is not that strong when he needs help, yet he doesn't have any concern. It's as if life itself is boring and he's alive because someone wants him alive. I don't know how to say but I feel irritated when I read about his actions towards the enemies. I would like to write more but I am out of words to describe the poor style the author has introduced.
MC gets a promise from a ghost where if MC helps the ghost's granddaughter, he will give MC unimaginable benefits but this moronic MC who only works in a ghost house for only 5 hours forgets this even though he said he would help. You wanna know the reason the author cooked up? He's tired! Lol! When I read upto that I truly wanted to drop this novel even though it sounds like an insignificant case as the novel just started. Want to know why? His life was changed because he would get 3 creepy photos in a fu*king envelope where it would show deaths of random people for every 3 days! Although he works for ghosts but they don't even talk to him about his problem whereas this random ghost might be able to protect the MC and his family from supernatural crisis. He forgets the most significant thing in his life.
"At the same time, I soon came to realize that Zhang Xue died after she had seen the rat's body. Then it was Chen Qianqian that saw the rat's corpse. After finding Su Qing, we agreed to help Su Qing find her child, we temporarily felt safe but completely ignored the dead rat." Since the whole thing is inside the spoiler bar I will explain. MC stumbles into some high school kids who went to the haunted house where MC works and they played some chinese version of Ouija sh*t and summoned a ghost for some stuff. It was okay since MC was there and the ghost's were all mc's acquaintances but one of the girl got somehow haunted by some mysterious ghost and got killed. Before she died, a rat was killed some day before and the girl got killed exactly the same as how the rat died which shows that the perpetrator reveals how the victims would die before it kills them. Now, there's another rat which has been killed in a queer fashion and that rat's corpse was dumped in another girl's home indicating she would be the next victim and would die the same way as the rat. But our moron MC and his moron police buddy completely forgets about her. Guess what happens after that? Yep, the girl got killed. A totally avoidable death if MC could've fixed his short term chinese memory.
Now the third victim is a guy, one of the high schoolers and he also got targeted the same as the first 2 girls. So author decided that the MC and his police buddy would put him in a jail so that he could be safe. I lost 5 point of IQ after reading upto this. There's a freaking ghost rest house where MC works and he could've taken the kid there but chose not to do it and proceeded to make false charge with the police. He literally gave up the safest place where the kid could stay and decided to go after some complicated arrangements. The thing that baffles me most here is that the police guy discuses his future courses of actions with bunch of teenagers alongside MC. I get the mc's involvement in his cases but why the f**k would a police asks for advices from kids?! It's not one of those cancerous Japanese stuffs where high school students decide everything. These are bunch of kids who got scared by the queer hauntings not Detective Conan. In addition to this, there's an extra spoiler after everything happens. Can you guess? Yep, the kid dies in prison. Let me quote it directly, "I told Wu Jian what happened that night. He said that he had a good idea, he told me to relocate to the ghost house. I thought this was a good idea, particularly because I figured most ghosts would be afraid to enter a place with so many other ghosts."*smh* At this point, it's clear that author is making cheap excuses to kill these characters.
MC'S godfather tells MC to solve a ghost which is hiding in his body whereas MC wants to keep it inside him. Godfather further warns him that his practice speed might fall where MC replies to him that he doesn't want fast speed but wants to do it slowly so that his "path" stays firm. You know it's one of those proud chinese lines in wuxia novels. The funniest thing is around 300ish chapter or so MC gets involved in a dangerous case and has gotten his ass whooped by ghosts. He then laments of his bad luck and slow progress and then breaks into bawling like a twerp in front of his girlfriend. I wouldn't have remembered this if I hadn't read the whole stuff in one day. This made me laugh at the author's inability to write stable characters and plots.
it's simply crap.
