It's a sad day when a novel of such quality is abandoned, whilst thousands of formulaic, bland stories receive care and attention; care, and attention that honestly isn't warranted at all.

All I can say to new readers is, be absorbed into the rhythm of this novel, and you'll similarly be left sighing wistfully.

Dreadful Radio Game

A Chinese horror story with its own personality. This novel is quite unique. The entire world building, the role of the radio, and the twisted world that it encompasses leaves a shuddering impression of impressive mystery. There is no normalcy in this world, only legitimate fears, around every corner, under the bed, and in the slight crack in the wall. Everything poses a threat. In this world arrives, a relatively powerless, yet mentally suitable protagonist. With his mindset, this world seems to be almost designed for him. What do I... more>> mean by his mindset? Let's Just say that our lovely protagonist titters on the brink of becoming a serial killer. Wait, he already is one!

Why rate three stars? Too early to Judge, but if this marvel continues, it's definitely five stars. <<less

Dominant protagonist that takes what he wants without hesitation. If you like that sort of thing, and aren't repulsed by the ambiguity that may involve. This story is exactly for you. If you do find it repulsive, then well, you're clearly in the wrong place.

The story possesses apt characterisation, the protagonist evolves into his power, and in the process becomes a leader. When he does mature into a leader, when compared to his previous self, there's an enviable amount of difference. All good thankfully.

The greatest negative of this story must... more>> however be mentioned. The protagonist can make rather foolish decisions, with the hope in mind of later 'conquest'. Not of guilds, nations, or empires. But of women. It makes the protagonist seem excessively blinded at times. Imbecilic even.

Entertaining read. <<less

The Human Emperor

A Chinese epic. The story is very intriguing. From its vast ranging machinations, to its well crafted Tang dynasty setting. The protagonist advances steadily whilst averting large-scale catastrophes that had befell his glorious nation in his past life. Well, at least diminishing the catastrophes as much as possible.

The protagonists schemes were rather amusing as well. Yet, the greatest problem in the end, is that simply put, the protagonist lacks the will power to be the man he says he was, and still is. Grand Marshall of the Tang dynasty. Why... more>> you may ask? The protagonist has absolutely no ruthless bone in his body as well, at one point in time, he was willing to sacrifice everything in order to simply say a few flowery words. Not to even mention that the protagonist doesn't actually really even understand politics that well. He's a traditional Confucianist, weak in the belief that all others are as morally good as he is. Cultured also. It leaves him in the precarious position of being a scholar general, rather useful in times of peace, but useless in times of conflict.

Recommended read. High-level world building. <<less

Rise of the Wasteland

I tried, I really did. I tried so hard to like this story, but I just couldn't. The racism was tolerable, it actually made the story far more realistic, in times of threat, and hostility man becomes insular, inward looking. So that's not my problem.

The beginning seventy or so chapters were great, if the story was continuing consistently as characterised hitherto I would say that 'Rise of Wasteland' is a solid four. But no! After chapter seventy, the characterisation is all over the place. The hypocrisy is ripe. There's double-standards... more>> every damn chapter. Eventually, at chapter one hundred and fifty the entire setting has become a cliche of powerful protagonist being bullied, and coerced continuously by the weak. The protagonist post-70 is nothing like the strong-willed man from before. He becomes a coward, not to his enemies, but to his so-called 'friends', and 'allies'. All it takes to manipulate him is a soft voice, a little tears, or a hand of a little girl. It's disgusting - he's no longer an anti-hero (which is what I came to read), he's now a shounen protagonist of a different stripe. Just another vigilante whom can't make 'hard choices' anymore.

Would not recommend, especially as the characterisation was the saving grace. Without, this novel is: nationalistic, racist, and masochistic. An empty shell to be consumed by teenagers in China who get off on courting 'ideal (please read fictional) ' women - only to be dominated by them after a single touch. <<less

At first I doubted. After five chapters, I rejoiced.

This is the story that all other monster reincarnations try to be, but are afraid to be. Clouded with hesitation, such stories become mundane expressions of gratuitous self-righteousness, not this novel, certainly not this novel.

In this novel, humanity fades as the monster within devours. It's a beautiful sight. The entire world is built rather simplistically, yet, it's still rather entrancing. For one, the mechanics of the world (laws of governance) are based around 'will', which is an amazing concept that allows... more>> for great exploration. And that's what the author did. Secondly, the harem isn't forced at all, it isn't Just another idiot collecting tropes. There's emotions, there's sentiments, and then there's desires. To end it all, what makes this story even better is the humour, and intimacy. It all feels so real, so lively, so full of life.

Definitely would recommend. This is the story of how Monster Reincarnation is supposed to be. Very dark, very beautiful. <<less

Conflicting. The story is quite unique in that the protagonist is epitomised to be the face of barbaric virtus. Or otherwise known, as 'manliness'. I found that quite new really. He was also able to conduct himself with control even with great temptation from women. Indeed, he had resisted two women whom had Just recently betrayed him. Once you have chosen to not be with him, he will not give the option ever again. Yet, this does also mean that to his 'own women', he's rather soft. Willing to lavish... more>> them with anything they desire. This usually means the protagonist doing favours for whatever family the 'beautiful heaven-shaking beauty' belongs to.

None the less, the sheer bestial nature of the protagonist that squarely desires power, is a sight to behold. A pleasant sight to read as well.

Recommended, but only if one is able to stomach the controversy the protagonist brings. Not for people whom are soft of heart. <<less

Divine Throne of Primordial Blood

This story has character. It's a wonderfully executed story. There's correct amounts of attractive qualities, from an intriguing, well laid out world, to a protagonist whom actually plans, schemes, and manipulates if the situation so befits. Very early on, the protagonist stands his ground against 'heaven shaking beauties', and that itself earns him quite the credit. Not only that, but the protagonist then goes on to neuter one of the women as well.

The greatest negative of this story however is that there's Just too much hesitations in this story. As... more>> if the author is wanting to do something, but fears the social repercussions of actually writing it. So he decides on toning everything down. It's a shame.

Recommended. <<less

One of the worst novels ever. This story is extremely cyclic. As has been summed by past reviewers. New location - > New beauty ->New Young Master -> Conflict due to the beauty - > Wooing the beauty - > Institutional conflict - > Disgraced - > Power-up -> Revenge. Oh, and add half a chapter of random people reacting to everything. It's all very fun to read. NOT.

When God Made Me

Superficial, but slowly becomes self-reflective, and progressive.

Base level Korean psychological; "Appearance is everything."

Our protagonist however, let's just say one respective deity had been sleep deprived for too long! In order to compensate for our protagonist's monstrous appearance, he receives AVATAR system!

Of course he improves his appearance first, that's his inferiority complex, and makes cultural sense. Afterwards, as he becomes more introspective, he realises that he lacks many, many more qualities. Self-control. Confidence. Et cetera. Slowly, the protagonist, becomes more... real of a person. With it, he becomes popular.

I stress though, it all felt so disgustingly superficial that the nice aspects were greatly overshadowed. Plus, this story is discontinued, why bother reading this anyway? Only 20 chapters.

Scum of the Cultivation World

A new flavour.

This novel is quite simply of a different mindset. I wouldn't use the word 'shameless', but 'dirty'. This story feels altogether more human than many other stories do. The protagonist lusts, craves, and takes advantage of life as much as possible. In order to survive he's willing to do pretty much anything - I can respect that.

However... the humour is strangely integrated. At inappropriate times something 'humorous' would occur making our protagonist look like a complete idiot. Then again... it could be that our hero is just... more>> manipulating those around him with a facade. This novel has so much better, and it feels like it's ruined, but it's not ruined to such an extent that it invites contempt.

Would recommend for those looking for something with a new pace. P.S, The Novel is Dead. <<less
