BIG EDIT SCROLL DOWN

Contrary to the reviews and ratings, the novel itself is captivating. There are parts of the novel where the author could improve on such as the lack of suspense; but overall, the story is like a vat of wine - as the story progresses, the more you want to read. Although there is a lack of elements that appear early in the story that influence the protagonist later on in the story, except for the 12 portraits, this isn't a bad thing, in a sense. Treat the... more>> novel as an adventure. The protagonist does have faults in his character at times, ahem, rape.

PS addressing the problem a lot of people find with the novel, the amount of chapters cultivation in the realm of immortal jade takes up, it's not as exaggerated as some people state - 90% of the novel. At best, it's 30-40%.

EDIT: I Mtl'd the entire novel and I've changed my entire view of the book around. I can't change my rating but I'd give it a 1/5 right now. The ending was really rushed and so many plot holes were never discussed. What was the significance of the 12 portraits? What about the 12 heavenly meridians? Even in the end, he never cleared all of them, only 11. The author never even mentioned all his women in the end. QS never reached the peak of martial arts either. <<less

Not my piece of cake. However, I really do have to say I enjoyed it a lot. The female lead is an exhibitionist that pisses the protagonist off at times. In response, the protagonist vents his anger through s*x. The series itself was quite amusing and there's no real plot. The author intends for there to be no plot because the epilogue cuts the story off where a plot, like NTR, may start. Fyi, there's no NTR though; but there's one scene where the protagonist gets really jealous.
