The first chapters were good, but it all goes downhill from there. The characters and the world were slightly fleshed out, and the excitement from the plot was lacking. The initial developments were dragged out only to abruptly finish at some point by something convenient. The concept is good, however, how the author portrayed it left much to be desired.

Against the Gods
November 11, 2016
Status: c672
If you're looking for something similar to Martial God Asura, Battle Through the Heavens or Heavenly Jewel change and haven't read Against the Gods yet, you definitely should! Especially if you're looking for something lengthy to read, or is the 672 chapters at my moment of writing not enough for you?

Against the Gods, or ATG henceforth, is basically a generic self-insert, wish-fulfillment, harem novel that comes with the usual annoyances in Xian/Wu-xia novels, namely the arrogant antagonists who can't see Mount Tai and of course, the peerless, jade-skinned fairies all... more>> around. Don't let these tags and combinations put you off though, as the author, Mars Gravity, perfectly blends them and sums it all up into something awesome, simply put.

One thing which makes ATG interesting is the struggles of the supposedly overpowered main character, Yun Che, through the heart-wrenching hurdles along his way. About how he furiously struggles through each and every one of them and about how he realizes that life is simply unfair at times. The highs and lows of his journey is guaranteed to capture the reader's hearts through the main character's journey, and break them mercilessly at times. It makes one realize and think about how to live and cherish what's present, amazing right? To think that a simple novel managed to teach this fact.

The character development is quite well done as each of the characters have their own ambitions and struggles, his harem members more so. They aren't the usual cookie cutter females which follow the main character aimlessly, compared to other novels. They have their own goals, ambitions and paths to follow. Here's where Mars Gravity's writing skills come to shine. Emotions are perfectly conveyed through the words and actions the characters portray, each interaction is filled with life and feelings. The ambitions, the wishes, the regrets, the pains and fears, and of course, the romance and yearning of each character makes them all endearing. The world-building is aptly written. The background of the novel isn't thrown into the readers face all at the same time but instead is gradually introduced. One cannot find those so-called info-dump chapters where the author just slaps new details and characters and calls that as an introduction. Each part of the world, the characters, the locations is described slowly but vividly through the passing chapters. Combined with the amazing characters and it all makes a great novel. Don't hesitate, procreate-, uh, rather, read it. It's worth your time I assure you. <<less

To Deprive a Deprived Person
May 27, 2017

The MC, given by his 'oh so dramatic' background, is supposed to be a selfish, depriving bastard... is what you're expecting right?


The synopsis is a lie.

... more>> The anti-hero MC is nowhere to be found.

And following this are the other parts that compose this novel.

The plot is weak. The side characters all have an emotional quotient of a gnat. The development is disturbingly stupid. Aaaaand of course, the small, biting taste of our MC, watching his deplorable harem, get groped right in his face without him even batting an eyelid.

Give yourself a favor and please don't bother reading this. <<less

I was about to type a long enough review about how nice and sweet and fluffy and touching this one-shot is, but at some point, I saw some pretentious, /r/IAmVerySmart, more-intelligent-than-thou, comedian trying hard to validate his so called elitism and intelligence so I had to laugh my heart out for three minutes.

But seriously, this thing's good, regardless of that funny person's post.

So yeah. Read it. It's nice.

The Magus Era

As a preface, do note that I am simply stating my opinion, as it were, and that in writing this, I only have the best interests of my co-readers in mind. That said, it would also be prudent to understand that it's an established conjecture that the reviews that are 4 or 5 stars are written by people that were either paid by Qidian to tank their ratings up, by people who are simply daft, or simply by unsavory folk with extremely questionable tastes.

If you, however, are in doubt, I... more>> urge you to give this novel a try. That is, if you're willing to stomach the terrible prose, the stale world-building, the repetitive plot, the horrendous character development and the glaring inconsistencies that keep springing left and right. Allow me to reiterate that you are free to experience the terror firsthand - in fact, I insist.

Read -or at least, try to read- until the 500th or 600th chapter, afterwards stop, collect your thoughts, then contemplate whether the 1☆ rating was well-deserved or no. <<less
