For all the people too lazy to read my review, here's the tl;dr:
Did you ever watch the show "Lost"? Yeah, it's like that but worse. Jump ship as soon as the "virtual reality universe" is revealed.
Here's everything you need to know to feel like you've read the rest (full spoilers) :
The dark net is actually a virtual reality... wait no a reverse universe... wait no a giant insects innards. Ye Weiwei's parentage is never revealed. The three eyed race (all of it) is wiped out by planet earth, which is a star god... wait no a space ship guarding the seed of all life. The dark egg is a super dragon. The Evil King was some miscellaneous guy, and we still don't know much about him. The path's of void have a seventh path which makes you punch harder. The strongest person in the alliance that the mentors were fleeing from never fights the MC and just joins him as a sidekick. There is a random all destroying insect race everyone forgot to mention that is destroying the world. The MC never finishes the fight with them. The author never finishes the novel, just ends it abruptly.
Now, for the longer version.
Galactic Dark Net was (note the tense) a great novel all the way up until the last 30-50 chapters. By categories:
Characters - 3/5: The characters are fun. But in depth..? Not really. Most of them take a single aspect of personality and a set of skills and run with it. As the MC gets stronger, the side characters are still present, but lose focus. They kinda just form an amorphous blob which they call the "Wolf Pack". But at least it doesn't abandon them. Early on, characters shine, and the interactions are fun. But, as you will soon see is the general trend... they slowly lose their gleam. The MC is pretty much a standard Mary Sue. He's charismatic and funny pretty much all the way through, and he's not one of those MC's who is a hair away from being an evil tyrant. He holds the story together rather well, as it crumbles around him. 4/5 early, 2.5/5 later on. 3 overall.
Plot - 2/5: Not a great plot. Here's where the Lost comparisons come in. The author keeps changing the canon, as well, which really hurts. I loved it early on, when the MC was one of the many powerhouses of earth, gearing up against a potential enemy threat. Then the MC got too strong and the whole thing went to sh*t.
The author introduces a whole new universe that forgets about the current one, then proceeds to immediately eliminate the massive threat facing earth in one chapter, then bring up a new threat that never existed prior, then proceeds to kick the MC out of that section of the other world and bring up that that was run by one of 5 companies and then never introduce 3 of those companies and then throw a bunch of miscellaneous threats and get the MC in a fight with 2 of the companies and then forgets that and sends him to another other world and then leaves that and kicks him out of the other world back to the normal universe where Earth has somehow become almost all powerful and is facing the alien super threat and slowly losing ground, whereupon Han decides to fight it.
And then it ends. Literally. Han doesn't fight it. He just says he will, and the author goes "We're done. Thanks for supporting me, it doesn't matter what happens, just come up with an ending yourself." No loose ends tied up. Hundreds of little mysteries left completely unexplored. A huge world cast aside. No canon pairings. No MC victory. No final boss. It is a worse version of the ending of Lost. Instead of being poetic and leaving loose ends... it just ends with a massive cliffhanger. No, I'm not gonna spoiler tag this, you deserve to know the crap you're getting dragged into.
Overall... 0/5. 4/5 very early. 3/5 early. 2/5 mid-late. -10/5 ending.
Setting - 1/0: Yeah, didn't know what to rate it. It's immersive, intriguing, fascinating, vast, expansive, and mostly unexplored. And I mean unexplored by the author, as he never answers most of the mysteries and forgets whole parts of the universe immediately after revealing them. But it was fun while it lasted.
Writing - 3/5: Solid, but unremarkable. Wasn't distracting, at least. Action was fun, and provoked the imagination, and it could draw you in to the world.
Translation - 4.5/5: Other than the occasional weird naming convention which I'm not sure worked well, it was flawless, as far as my eyes are concerned. Translators say they will change the ending... and I'd love that; it'd raise them to 4.9/5.
Enjoyment - 5/5 until the end: It was still a fun read despite the flaws. Fluffy, light, immersive, and mysterious. The ending was a 0/5, though, which sucks some of the enjoyment out. Overall 4.5/5.
Overall... good universe, bad author.
A young man gets kicked out of his house by his family for being too weak. He gets a magical macguffin from a family servant, and teams up with his devoted childhood friend (who loves him unconditionally because he "worked so hard") to go off and become and adventurer. Turns out, the magical macguffin contains the soul of a mentor figure (or in this case 7), who train him. He encounters a random girl in an ally and befriends her. She gets kidnapped. He rescues her, and she falls in love instantly. Another girl participating in the rescue also falls for him for no apparent reason. Volume 1 over.
Volume 2. He goes to a village that is in a border conflict, due to a body being found in their territory. The leader of the village is a pushover who is encouraged to conflict with the MC by his totally-not-evil brother who is the one that found the body with only one other witness and is now trying to push for a war. The other territory says that that was their retainer and that they think the first village was responsible. Then they find out from the other witness to finding the body that... WHAT? THE TOTALLY NOT EVIL BROTHER WAS EVIL ALL ALONG. Also the girls were probably there, but all I can remember is that one of them did a big magic attack.
In fact, it was such a poorly done twist that I almost suspected that wouldn't be the twist, because anyone with a brain would know that picking a fight with a territory 5 times your size was a bad idea, but apparently they wanted the story to both be predictable and run by idiots.
It took barely more than 100 chapters for him to beat the top person of his sect's outer disciples, join the inner disciples, beat the best inner disciple, get adopted by another great teacher, beat the top person of that, join a sect in a new realm, and beat the top person of the outer disciples there, and become an inner disciple.
