I Was Reincarnated and Became a High Elf, but I Got Tired of the Slow Life After 120 Years


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

150 years of life after being reborn as a high elf, who I thought only existed on fiction.

It took 30 years to realize that I had been reborn, and after 120 years of just munching on berries and taking it easy, I finally decided to head into the outside world.

This is the story of an ambiguous existence with a lifespan of over 1000 years — a restless high elf living leisurely as a human.

What to say - it is an amazing story.

It isn't big on action and as far as romance is concerned it is practically nonexistent.

Where it shines is its character development and setting. Our high elf protagonist takes his time with things he does and the things he does are interesting. His perspective is that of someone who can casually alot some 30 years on a hobby, yet he moves in a world that rapidly changes. He travels a lot and meets a lot of characters and the world he experiences... more>> is just so interesting. <<less

This novel brings in complicated feelings from me.

I do agree that the writer style is good and idea of showing the life of long living species is great, but outside of this I don't understand why I should read this novel any longer. There is no one who develop with the MC. The description of MC previous world and any attempts to use this knowledge to develop something are nonexistent at point where I've read.

This novel may be interesting for someone, but it is completely useless. Or at least I... more>> can't find any meaning in it. It is good, but it doesn't show how to communicate, or differences in culture, or differences in world view, or economics, or intrigue. And thou my demands for novels might be a little bit too much for writers to meet... there is no character developed enough for you to see them as something more than background for MC.


  • if you want a laid back story written in good language - read this novel, you will love it. I mean it;
  • if you want to get something useful from this novel - try finding another.
For me this novel has ended at ch 148. <<less

There must be many kind novels out there, and I find this one quite enjoyable.

The plot and style encases in the traveling novel genre, where our MC narrates memories in present tense. His time perspective doesn't make fun of the lives of short-lived humans but at the contrary the protagonists involves intimately with them.

The translation and edition is quite nice and careful and the reading is very pleasing.
