Alright so I see what people are sayin. This isn't the best piece of writing. Tbh it's something you turn off your brain to read. Even then, it's still pretty eeeh. Everyone unanimously chooses to respect the MC after his first conflict with the Murong family. Which is chapter 7.
Apparenlty he's done 'evil deeds' before the reincarnation, but no one really brings that shiz up. It's only stated and not explained. The whole killing his adopted brother kinda just goes out the door after it happens too. His father pretty much doesn't care. Which wouldn't happen to a real father especially after he raised him for years.
Everything feels straightforward and low IQ. Like muh bruh, the MC decides the whole marriage thing is a plot by the Murong guy, but what if it wasn't? He said he 'suspects it' since the girl is sooo super, extremely, unbelievably ugly. He even says he thinks shes not even the guys real daughter.
Wat? You just gonna assume that someones daughter might not be their daughter because shes ugly?
This just shows that the author wants his MC to be so assured of himself that even his assumptions will be undeniably right. What if he was wrong about the whole plot? He's never met this Murong family before. There needs to be inquires and investigations, not just assumptions and 'intuition'. A single doubt about the marriage and situation could be looked into, but nah he's so assured that he's right, which, in turn, means that he will be right. Cuz author.
When an MC says shiz like "Yes, I am indeed a genius, possessed with a god given talent that no one else has... I managed to produce a restoration pill with 100% effectiveness on my second attempt." It makes ya wanna slap the ever-living piss outta him. He doesn't even conceal the fact that he can do this stuff even though he shouldn't be able to do it.
This just seems like a power jerk and wish fulfillment story. That's fine I guess, but only if the story was written well enough. It needs more substance. If the story exists just to stroke the MC's big pen-, I mean brain, then what makes it better than all the other stories?
Two stars since TL is good and at least cultivation is decently fast. I have a feeling that everything the MC will do will be the 'correct' decision. An MC like this can do no wrong. Cuz author.
