Started out pretty good. Smart MC, farming rather like World of Cultivation, then quickly veers off course and turns into a crappy clone of Warlock of the Magus world. I quit at chapter 36. If you like brainless, murderous MCs, then this might be the story for you. If you prefer a more 'Carefree' story, then probably better to look elsewhere.

Very interesting story. The description in the series can be very misleading. If you expected a farming centered novel or or slice of life story then you've been completely fooled: the farming part is merely in the first parts of the novel.

This novel is very much like the authors previous tale: Warlock but with a more refined concept. It's about the MCs journey of discovery as he sinks into the deep pool about the truths and workings of universe. The story is split into parts where he journeys different worlds... more>> each with its own unique setting and "story" with the MC appearing as manipulator or even as the main character. These are then spread out over the overarching main story about the events in the homeworld om the MC as his avatar returns from each journey.

The tone of the novel and main characters personality is very much like that of the previous novel - Rational Lawful Evil guy without much regards to morals or romance, everything is for the sake of benefits, sneers at meaningless killing yet wouldn't lift an finger to stop catastrophes causing the death of millions if those align with his goals.

I wouldn't really even call this xuanhuan, this is just fantasy - and ALL sorts of it due to the different worlds he travels, from ancient asia to post WWI with superpowers (thanks XMEN) to dark victorian with demons (BLOODBORNE BABY) all I know is that its pretty awesome. <<less

Truly just like the title of this novel "Carefree Path of Dreams", the MC here is truly a carefree person. He's not the usual righteous individual but instead a person passionate only to his work and lazy to help others. He is also knows how to read the mood...

Spoiler

This guy also have those status but as for now I can't see some clear cheat because those stats and experience bar just showed his own progress..

A botany providing his own cultivation resources..

With the title, synopsis and slice of life, I kinda expected that it would be more a relaxing read with a xianxia theme but nope it's not which is a big disappointment to me. Add in to the fact that everything most of the high reviewers said is not really true due to the fact that if you read a lot of other CN you could already see the cycle of cliche happenings here after around 40 or 50 chapters. Like for some example MC would just find some kind... more>> of plot/luck whenever he needs to find the things he wanted i.e seeds, items, skills or the likes.

Well aside from the start of it, where he farms spiritual farm and have a accompanying system with it, there's nothing really unique with this series <<less

A disappointing lackluster entry from the author of Warlock of a Magus World. This novel is essentially a clone of WMW if you take away everything that made WMW great.

  1. The MC is ruthless yes: but he has no reason to be so. Leylin (WMW) had a plot-driven reason to be ruthless, this MC is just a sociopath for no good reason.
  2. The MC is stupid, the author gave him an overpowered system which essentially acts as plot armor allowing the author to have the the MC be supremely talented for no good reason.
  3. Plot armor galore, the author has grown lazy and it shows in the sheer amount of plot armor involved in this story. Everything keeps falling into the MC's lap
  4. Boring farming system, the key draw of this series is that it has farming elements similar to the start of "World of Cultivation". These are quickly abandoned, however, and essentially become a way for the author to funnel in justification for plot armor and power ups

Another good novel by a very gifted author. While WMW is still superior in my opinion, this novel can stand on its own. To compare, the character in this novel is more true neutral rather than neutral evil that Leylin is. I know that the evil MC in WMW was off-putting for many younger readers. On the other hand, the progression in Warlock feels more thought through and Leylin worked much harder for his lucky encounters in comparison to the MC in this novel.

Overall one of the best novels that... more>> are currently being translated. Don't waste your time here and go read it. <<less

It's really not bad at all. If you liked WMW, then you definitely will like this novel. With almost the same temperament (although MC here is definitely more righteous), you won't be disappointed. It's pretty difficult to find a novel with an MC that has a calm and collected personality. Most of the times, you'll find yourselves looking at completely apathetic killers, or righteous to the point of childish and unrealistic.

Again, I'm only at chapter 70 of the hundreds of chapters in the novel, but it is quite good, and... more>> the five star rating is for the future prospects that this novel can give. Although MC also gets a lot of cheats, and undoubtedly rises in power as lot easier than Leylin does, I hope that in the future, MC will slow down because his

advantages in terms of constitution should fade away.

If MC gets too OP too fast, I'll have to definitely lower the rating, however, as the author of WMW, I hope the author wouldn't be making such an amateurish mistake <<less

Started out great, the first dozen chapters are actually quite interesting, then author decided to turn it to a totally different path. If you like the first 40~ chapters, you might not like anything beyond that.

The first few chapters are about base-building, then it becomes action/adventure.

The novel description is misleading. It is not "I suddenly", it is more like "I killed a bunch of people and now they're afraid of me". Started great, but walking off the original base-building into a more of an action/adventure road brought with it a... more>> calamity. <<less

Another novel from author The Plagiarist, if you finish read Warlock of the Magus World you will also like this novel because Fang Yuan (MC) have personality similar to Leylin Farlier but have different start cultivation

Fang Yuan before cultivate; life Carefree in secluded valley with his kind master, that is to say Fang Yuan have a better childhood than Leylin who transported to another world survival the fittest.

The Cheat is also not too overpowered like AI Chip (save, analysis, deduce, control, etc), and make me curious what skill/ability he will... more>> get after level up.

World Building is also like WMW, full of mystery. <<less

The MC's life is pretty carefree and he cultivates quickly due to his OP System, though this may so sound boring it's a pretty nice story to read. What's unique to the story is his botany skills and tea brewing stuff which help him grow.

The MC's doesn't act recklessly and when needed stay's low-key and suffers humiliations to survive. He is very decisive and will be ruthless when killing people to prevent them from bringing trouble. He is a very cautious and scheming person though he can't predict unexpected events... more>> like some OP MC's in other stories. He isn't swayed by women and will not give them a second glance. <<less

The premise of the story seemed pretty interesting at the beginning, but then things started to get a bit wonky. The only time when the MC is "carefree" is when he's drinking tea... and maybe when he's slaughtering people left and right. Some of his enemies are treated like piñatas... "Oh how enjoyable it is!", he says to himself.

His personality is all over the place, as if the author wants him to be everything. The scene transitions can be pretty bad at times too. The translation quality is okay; the... more>> English grammar is decent enough but the word choices can be odd at times. This novel is definitely not as good as the authors other work, but decent nonetheless.

Hmm, I wonder if 'The Plagiarist' plagiarized this new novel as well? If so, it would be nice to see what it was based on. For anyone curious what I'm talking about, his past work 'Warlock of the Magus World' was based off of 'The Wizard World'. Both are quite enjoyable. <<less

Clearly this story is about relying on ones self to progress in the world. This farmer looks at his life experience as one big experiment, where in he utilizes what is available and cultivates his farm, his animals and his life to become superior to others. I find the novel engaging and light hearted. At times he is schemed and betrayed by associates and strangers. This does not deter his spirit. I look forward to his journey to a better life for himself and those who may come to... more>> associate with him. <<less

The novel was fun though a bit bland in the beginning, but it was easily rectified after some more characters were introduced and the story picked up pace. I had my hopes up and thinking that this may be a better novel than the plagiarist previous work "WoMW" which was in itself the most boring thing I have ever read.

But it seems that plagiarist doesn't know how to write engaging and ever evolving characters. This novel is a collection of tropes and sudden incidences that hold no meaning in the... more>> story context. While all the characters including the MC has been given a particular attribute and they follow it from the get go.

Now comes our cheat that gives the MC a huge advantage in growth and broken in itself. But we don't feel that the cheat [status screen] played any vital part in the story, the author has just given the MC a godly talent and nothing would have changed.

Now comes one of the main part of the novel, the farming part..... well I don't remember anything related to farming, not on the level World of Cultivation has shown us. I sometimes think that the author himself forget about the farming part as they don't seem that vital in the story.

Now the main part, and that is dreaming.
The author probably is using the trope of cultivation from "Paradise of Demonic God" and "Way Of The Devil", in which the MC's usually go to the other world (Universe) and posses the body that recently died or something else solve the karma connecting them to this world and hence increasing their cultivation.
But while the MC from those novels has a bit of distinction and personality driving them, I don't think of the same happening here with our MC. The dream parts are so bland and boring that it seems a way the author stole to increase the word count or chapter count.

THIS NOVEL IS sh*t!! Don't Read it!! <<less

This story is very good, and the MC is mature, always look lowkey, and OP on the right moment. The scheming and the way of his thinking to consider cost benefit is making this story different from linear cultivation story (revenge, harem, and beat the bad guys). He is more like "i wont bother anyone, leave me alone" type. Although I recommend to skip all of his dreams story (side story), They are not making the hype on track.

C154

The story pace has gone fast from a little mountain, into kingdoms,... more>> and wars. I like how MC get things done is a fast and simple way. Killing and plotting enemies that should take days, its done in a day. Ending the war that took years, being done in months. This is the very reason why this novel can never get you bored! The pace and scheme are well played and keep getting better. <<less

It's so good, if only the MC had a bit of humanity in him it would have been perfect, he doesn't give a damn about girls witch both good and bad, and his quite cruel even immoral sometimes, the translation is also sometimes confusing, otherwise this novel is so good the MC is smart his actions are quite logical he knows when to step up and when to step down, he take preventive action to protect himself. He didn't let anyone take advantage of him.

So far it's pretty good; reminds me of the beginning of 'World of Cultivation'. We have a MC who doesn't really care that much about the world outside of his little farming valley, and yet, the world still intrudes.

It's too early to say whether it'll turn into cliched garbage, but at least the writing style is fairly engaging. There are hints of the old familiar stories with a broken engagement and a set of evil antagonists (outer sect guy, inner sect cousin, sect elder father). They don't make up the... more>> bulk of the story though, and are still entertaining enough.

As yet, there are no triggers that would make me stop reading (heavy s*xism, rape, racism, etc.). People who enjoy xuanhuan will probably enjoy this. <<less

It seems like many don't like this novel, actually this novel deserves four stars. There are indeed some classic plots, often played in other novels, but that does not reduce its superiority because the end of the plot is different, especially the writer makes the MC does not kill anyone, except those in the world of his own dreams.

MC just wants to live quietly in his small valley, even the reason why he increases the power because of threats from outside, like; love rivals, ex-fiancé teachers, sect elders etc., because... more>> they have bad prejudices there are MC. Not sure about the continuation of the story for now I give five stars because the novel rating is 3.8. <<less

The series is good with a clear mental path for the character (usually revolving around 'clearing up loose ends'; which makes him shoot right past a lot of the steps in the usual 'revenge by villain faction' cycle).

Things eventually get weird because the author introduces more systems. First, the progagonist is a reincarnator has a stat/skill system unique to him because of course he does (this also ends up going into a 'lets be a farmer' start of the plot). But this is easy enough to write off, and it... more>> doesn't exactly clash with the regular 12/13 level system in a 'special technique and level' focused setting every one else uses. Those compliment each other well, since he mostly just gets to see his progress bar for training and he uses available, if rare, items to boost his stats.

But then the author adds alchemists and spammy spell casters. These new guys START OFF at the same about power as the peak level martial artists (but it is written off as 'high stat requirements to join' and the martial art system lets relatively normal people build up to that power level).

Then things get reeeeeallly weird

Spoiler

The titular system is brought in about 70 chapters in- dream master. Which allows you to go into dream worlds... which can have their own cultivation systems (the one in the first world it is pretty silly, with like....20 distinct level names and things like 99 tribulations in a 'we have cool magic items' setting; very dream logic based, so that is easy to write off). At first, this seemed like it was just a "lol, do whatever" method of training your mind/soul/magic- you can do whatever in the dream world without worrying about dying or hostages. There is also an hint that he can set the setting, so he can make his own scenarios to live through.

But then, the character brings up how dream masters can bring certain things into the real world if they 'follow natural laws of the real world'. Which seems more like he is modding skyrim and he can only insert certain files of the right type. This makes me realize that the other systems in the 'real world' are probably just things that dream masters imported in.

[collapse]

Generally... don't come for the world building of cultivation, because the author throws monkey wrenches into that. Stay for the protagonist that can follow the plot and plans to cut it off. He is fairly goal oriented, and he would honestly stop with the sneaky stuff if people would just stay off his lawn. <<less

Great story MC is unlike those who believes in killing or goes 2 or 3 abobe and kills his enemy he is not someone who mindlessly falls in love or or with dumb morals he is ruthless in a very small number of situations as the plot is in such a way

To those who read till only 30 or 50 chapter I'd say do read ahead you may get impressed

the story is pretty fun at the beginning with MC op with a cheat but the quality deteriorates as the story progresses

some cons

1> in this novel everyone is driven by profit with no moral grounds at all, I mean ya in real world nobody is a saint but still this novel takes it to extreme levels, people who were friends with the MC just betray him because he became powerful and could threaten them, girls are just gold-diggers and the just want to use the MC for the wealth and... more>> power he posses. To be honest it's unrealistic and tiring to read

2> MC is just an idiotic fool, who is brutal (without any reason), practical (*cough* coward *cough*), and pathetically alone in the world. He is not righteous and I think the author is not able to decide a fixed personality for him, sometimes he kills innocent people for no reason whatsoever and sometimes he acts all high and mighty arghhhh.

3> cultivation system is crap

pros

1> the story concept is interesting

2> MC is op with a plot armor harder than adamantium

3> the pacing is good and the arcs are not dragged unnecessarily <<less
