For a person who rarely reads cultivation novels in a modern setting, I didn't expect that I would get hooked on so easily. I recommend this novel, it is well written and the translation quality is excellent.

That was my review before I knew anything better.

The Second Coming of Gluttony

So far the novel is holding up really well, with a main character that actually has a personality, who interacts with the world around him and simultaneously going through a slow spiritual redemption after ruining his family and life because of his gambling addiction.

The author isn't good at making the reader bond with the side characters, while at the same time he is setting them up in scenarios in which we have to actually feel something for that character beyond "aww, that sucks" for it to properly work.

For example that terribly written drama with Cho Hong which only left me frustrated, and Dylan's death.

The novel does however show, that there is no blind worship or acceptance of the MC, which is a big +

The world isn't very well built as of now, but it does have some interesting elements.

I am hoping that in the next 50 chapters writer steps up his game, because as of now the only really interesting thing is the main character's reason for coming into the another world (and how his future emotions influence him), and that can only captivate me for so long until I get bored and drop it.

Kill the Hero

This novel could be described mediocre at its best. It reads as if it is a rpg grind log with some padding thrown in. Main character is extremely one dimensional and can only think of revenge, being a cheap f**k, and how he is the best hunting dog there was and will ever be! Side "characters" are extremely unremarkable and unmemorable. I see almost no redeeming qualities of this novel except for its extreme blandness.

I recommend reading it only to pass time when you have nothing to do.
