Perfect World

I had to write a review since I saw that people were hating on the nove. First off the novel starts off with the MC as a child and so people have wierd expectations on hin to never change and remain a child for some reason. People seem to forget that he is a chikd growing up in a workd where death is everywhere. It's a world where if it isnt trying to eat you, its trying to rob you and then there are reviewers complaining about how he's killing... more>> everything but that's the world that he's growing up in. I mean there are even people trying to kill him within his own clan and people are expecting him to just hide and cower in fear for the rest of the novel? I also read that people think he's a pervert but I haven't actually read any part of the novel where he does something perverted. At most he teases and fights girls with some of the fights ending up with him wrestling with the girl or biting her and not in an actual s*xual way. As for him eating intelligent creatures, he's not the only one, there are countless other creatures eating each other and eating humans and so to say he can't eat them is ridiculous. He even has standards for eating, ie not eating humanoids because they look like humans. Its like going to a xianxia novel and complaining about how pill refiners use magical ginseng which may have sentience for pills. As for the school, its a school where you go to learn how to kill stuff basically. For him to kick everyone's ass is a good thing because its the modern school equivalent to acing all advanced placement classes in high school, it shows his talent. Altogether people who give the novel low ratings probably have wierd expectations from the novel when from a logical standpoint everything the main character does is fine. Its good if you don't expect something that's always serious or for a main character to be a hero because there is no real good and evil in the novel but just self interest. <<less

I’m in Hollywood

This novel is a pretty good story about movie making. What can be appreciated is that it feels like the author at least somewhat researched material for the novel to make it more realistic and logical. The only real issue I have is the inconsistency of the protagonist's character at times but overall it's a good read. Picture is pretty misleading though considering he turned into a white guy with blonde hair I think.

Peerless Battle Spirit

So I've read 18 chapters and as of this point there isn't much to say about this novel other than "GENERIC". There's really nothing new or interesting here and it just feels average. The translator is pretty honest about it though when the novel is introduced as a novel for those who are into arrogant young masters and those with eyes and cannot see mount tai. Really the start is extremely generic with the genius turned waste for no reason other than the author needs some bs reasoning for the... more>> plot to happen. Everybody that the protagonist has met thus far that are not his father are arrogant young masters that toss around the term "waste" liberally as if they're afraid that the reader doesn't understand that everyone knows that the protagonist got a sh*tty spirit. And when they do call him waste and call him and his dad out on what anyone else would consider wasting the clan's resources, he gets mad even though it's extremely apparent that those with a rank 1 spirit are basically waste with no future. The protagonist's character just feels illogical and the plot is generic.

Altogether, all that can really be said about the novel is that it's generic. This doesn't make it bad but it's unlikely to end up becoming anything that stands out either. It just feels pretty meh as a whole. <<less

I’m Really a Superstar
April 13, 2017
Status: c541
I'm Really A Superstar started out as a refreshing novel about a nobody underdog's story and his rise to becoming famous. The beginning was great and like many others said the first few hundred chapters are good, excluding the romance. This formula would have worked better if the author actually made Zhang Ye a likeable person. Zhang Ye is truly an major douchebag man child. In the novel he basically ruins other people's lives and we are supposed to laugh and be like "Oh Zhang Ye you little rascal" but... more>> from what has happened thus far, Zhang Ye has had no character development and likely will not. Basically Zhang Ye is someone who shows no remorse for his actions and is a total asshole to people who don't immediately love him and his work. For example, he ruined several people's lives with his cheat system and it gets casually glossed over like it's nothing. A prime example of this is how a government official who probably would keep him banned gets sent to the hospital because the system lowered the difficulty and Zhang Ye acts as if it's his just desserts. If Zhang Ye was a real person, he probably wouldn't actually be able to be a superstar because of his pettiness and craziness.

Zhang Ye is also xenophobic to the extreme. Whenever a chinese person does something to him, it's the individual's fault. Whenever a foreigner does something to him, it's the entire people's fault. Like for example, a korean idol pissed him off so what does Zhang Ye do? He insults all koreans. Then when hackers attack chinese celebrities, he proceeds to ruin the entire country by giving them a virus that nearly destroys the korean economy. We're supposed to think that Zhang Ye is a good nationalist but all he really does is overreact to foreigners while doing less towards other chinese people. A lot of the things he preaches and uses are from other countries but Zhang Ye shamelessly uses them while also hating the countries that they originated from.

Other than Zhang Ye, the other characters also have no real development. Basically everyone is a what you see is what you get. It's sad when arguably the best character is a little girl who goes "Hur, hur". The cousins don't feel like family but rather leeches who come to Zhang Ye to get money or favors. The mom is a shameless person, which isn't too bad in all honesty, but essentially all the characters feel stale.

Now onto the romance. It feels like a cat caller would have more game than Zhang Ye. There should be a "Do Not Try This At Home" attached to all the romance scenes because it reads like something out of japanese pornography, where Zhang Ye is able to s*x up girls because he fondles them. Now thus far, he hasn't actually had s*x yet, but he has continuously groped and felt up a bunch of the female characters. You might think this form of courtship wouldn't work, but surprisingly it does, and more importantly, he basically voyeurs a woman into a relationship with him. What really pisses me off about the romance is that it is less earned than even xianxia romances, because at least in xianxia, the MC saves the girl's life, or there is a reasonable time period with ambiguous feelings, but here Zhang Ye is literally a creeper who takes pictures of a supposedly cultured woman who agrees to go out with him because he lowered the difficulty. This is like someone who drugged someone's drink and then slept with them thinking that it's fine since they weren't actually unconscious or resisting. Altogether the story started out great but in my opinion, Zhang Ye slowly but surely starts ruining the novel. I'm not dropping this novel because I'm still hoping that there is actual character development or that Zhang Ye stays in China because I don't think that Zhang Ye would be able to make it on an international scale. Altogether I'll give the novel a 3.5/5. <<less

This is definitely a great novel. The MC can be considered to be like the villain mastermind in movies except competent. It's not for the faint of heart or people expecting some kind of strong op MC because the story is really dark and more about political ability than actual fighting ability.

I'll round up and give this novel a 4 even though I feel that it's a 3.5

Like most people said the MC is ridiculously childish and idiotic despite being some great cultivator at some point in time but it would've been tolerable if not for the girl trying to kill him. ... more>>
Spoiler

She basically starts trying to kill him when he hits her because she reminds him of the woman who killed him which was reasonable but she is often described as not narrow-minded or idiotic but she really is. Whenever the MC saves her it makes her want to kill him even more which the MC is cool with for some reason. He acts all profound but is an idiot because he thinks that since he knocked her down it was repaid when he saved her LIFE a second time even though he already saved her from the zombie monks literally moments before that. Even after he gives her a free ride to escape a haunted temple she still wants to kill him and even stole the treasure that was literally inside of his palm. Even then he acts like it's OK and let's her continue to stay with him even though she just stole his dew drop and he knows she wants to and has the ability to kill him.

[collapse]

Altogether the interactions between the protagonist and the girl is what makes me feel that the protagonist deserves to die again and that the novel is only a 3.5/5 <<less

Accumulate Experience by Reading Books
June 20, 2018
Status: c9
This is a pretty good novel about a guy who writes his life experiences in a magic journal for points to buy experience for skills. It's an interesting enough concept that's basically all-for-one book edition where he can only buy experience that previous writers put into the book. The story doesn't progress particularly fast but it's also not slow. The only real problem I'd have is with the translations which would definitely benefit from some editing because the flow of the story gets a bit wonky at times since the... more>> syntax is probably going to be a bit awkward for people who are comfortable with English and the diction is also a bit questionable. Other than needing to get used to the translations, the novel has a pretty good start. <<less

World of Cultivation
April 13, 2017
Status: c576
World of Cultivation is a great novel with good actual character development and a good plotline. A defining factor of World of Cultivation which makes it stand out from other xianxias is that the novel is not focused solely on Zuo Mo, but also features well fleshed out characters that grow along with Zuo Mo. Many people dislike the slow pace in the begining, but the slow pace is one of the things that makes the novel so great since it was able to lay a foundation in the backstory... more>> and world building that would happen throughout the novel. The title of World of Cultivation is great, since, the novel isn't just about Zuo Mo, but about the world and inter species politics and conflicts. Zuo Mo also shows a gradual change from a small and weak nobody to a powerful warlord who cares deeply about his subordinates. The novel should definitely be read to past chapter 100 because it truly picks up after chapter 100. <<less

God and Devil World
January 26, 2017
Status: c481
God and Devil World is a pretty good read about a guy who starts off as a normal-ish person who becomes a warlord. The description of the main character is weird because he starts off average-looking but later in the novel the author seems to forget this and starts describing him as if he's an attractive, noble, and charismatic leader somehow even though all he really does is some common sense stuff for defense and for offensive tactics he just basically uses mob tactics. Now you definitely shouldn't read this... more>> if you can't tolerate a lot of racism because in the novel, everyone aside from the Chinese are racist and evil for some reason particularly against the Chinese for some reason and non-chinese people who aren't racist basically just follow the main character. The author doesn't really understand racism and selfishness either because for some reason all the white people get together to form a world-wide group that is racist only towards Asians it seems and no conflicts seem to arise within this group.
Spoiler

Now on to the plot. The plot is pretty repetitive and drawn out in all honesty since what the author seems to think is "Oh, the MC has a base and is growing a strong force now, better somehow send him far away to build another base". Also the author really likes zombie hordes conveniently attacking the city or base that the MC is in and so the MC has to stop the horde and in doing so establishes his might or something. The harem in the novel is also pretty badly written as what happens is basically: There's a beauty that falls? In love with the MC and the MC has s*x with her once then she disappears into the harem of ever growing girls. The MC also seems to be the only person with an actual special class and abilities since everyone else can basically be described as: shoots guns, swings swords, uses magic, or is a psychic and every single one of them don't seem to have any actual unique trademark skills or abilities other than those. A lot of the enemies are also weirdly dumb at times, which I'll chalk up to plot armor. Also somehow the Kingdom of God, what has been called the strongest power in the novel can't take care of a little dictator in vietnam when they already took over Europe. Another thing is that the Kingdom of God somehow becomes that big that quickly, like I feel like if they appeared when the MC took control of China then the overall timeline would make sense. But the plot is probably going to develop like so: The MC kills the vietnam guy and then somehow winds up in Japan or something. There almost everyone is going to be racist and it's his job to rally up all the Chinese, which there will be enough of to take over the country with despite the fact that they're in a foreign country. Then he'll meet some kind of op animal that's stronger than his other animals and somehow tame it. After he conquers a city, a zombie horde is going to show up and he's going to need to fend off the zombie horde by digging holes which noone seems to have ever thought up of aside from him and by using the scum battalion.

[collapse]
Altogether it would be a lot better if the author wasn't a nationalist on the extreme side and characters had actual development and the plot wasn't as predictable, the novel is decent enough to be a 3.5/5 which I'll round up to a 4/5. <<less

I felt that this story had potential but the MC is ridiculously stupid and the female lead is just a worthless love interest that doesn't really contribute to the plot outside of causing trouble for the MC. The MC is "powerful" but it essentially doesn't matter because he still gets his ass dragged around by the female which basically makes any strength gain worthless because it's like he has cancer but also the cure to cancer but he doesn't get rid of the cancer because it's a part of him.
