In the legendary haunted school, Xiao Li looked at his companions’ task of ‘survive until dawn’ and then looked at the tasks displayed in his book:

Tell me your name.

Tell me what you like.

Kiss me.

First of all, just from the summary, the content was really unexpected. It wasn't very scary because our MC is really fearless, but I was still surprised by how horror/mystery centered this novel is! If you just read the summary, it feels like game loading? but the romance in this is sooooo slow burn but it was given focus when it was revealed so it was ok. ... more>>

Ofc, there weren't explicit scenes and I laughed so much when I read the comments who understood that the "........" "................" part means the papapa scenes HAHAHAH those readers are just SO used to being cheated in papapa scenes cause of censorship HAHHAHA

The side characters were so cute, I didn't expect that Xiao Li would have like, long term partners, I didn't think he would allow people to be that close to him but I guess it was fate that Zheng Yi was with him and they knew each other. Ye Zeqing was also funny, I also liked him because of his ghost body? he was really helpful and wasn't just asking questions like Zheng Yi (who is honestly the readers' representative). Wang huai was also an unexpected side character, I like him too because of the fact that he's got so many items with him hahahha and how he is fed up with XL's curiosity. ofc, our cutie ML, I like how Shen Chenzi isn't entirely OP and all the hard work was really from XL, that he didn't have to help XL with everything and was honestly just helping him from slipping and the rain HAHAHA

The ghosts are also so cute and pitiful, I loved how they helped XL in the end despite everything, it may be a bit OOC for them, but I guess the other gods are not that good to them anw, so when they helped XL, it's with some other intention which was said by the pen fairy at some point. Tan li is just <3, zhou ying, that boy is addict HAHAHA, lightbulb was really useful hahahha, the writer zui tian (?) was also used in the end, fu zige the mic was also fun to read about, bloody mary was just bullied and I love how she always ends up helping, same with the pen fairy, it was their fault that they are so easy to call hahahah there's also meiyou/ call ghost, the scalpel was also used several times. The coffin ghost was so funny. The back ghost was abused fr hahahaha it was kind of a pity that XL didn't use much of the ghost in death's laboratory like the big one? then there was also the crying woman, legs, iv ghost cutie pie, smile cut woman? forgot what she was called but she was really helpful! The beautiful ghost, fu jiang? idk but her experience was LOL. Xiao tu was just bullied. The instance with the adjudication was witty, and he used the memory ghost. captain sturt was also nice to have hahhaha. The ancient woman and stick lol. The black cat ofc <3 Then there's also the godss, lies and deaths are the ones mostly present and I just like how SC was jealous of lies hahahah and wang huai at some point.

The instance that I liked the most, is...... I'm still thinking. But the instance that was kind of messy for me, for me ah! was with captain sturt? I can't find a list of all the instances = ((. I really can't pick a favorite cause XL wasn't biased on anyone haahhaha hmm I guess the first global instance was memorable cause of how they can't talk? like I said, he just bullied all the ghosts in all instances so it was all just balanced, no favoritism hahahha but he mostly used the hospital ones and strange stories right? oh I guess I like the strange stories cause that's when he first met SC in instances and the viewers also praised him hahaha on the other hand, the prison instance where the ghost are the viewers hahahahha

Honestly, I felt kind of tired reading this because of howwww much XL like to enter instances, like u just entered one boy! I was so tired reading and thinking all that complicated stuff and want a bit of fun you know! but. you. still. kept. on. entering. instances.!!! hahahahaha I really just rest for a bit after instances cause I know XL wouldn't. I also did kind of miss the interaction with the little yellow book at some point but also happy the SC can be there physically with XL. I loved how the perspective of SC was shown at times, and I'm glad that he has met XL.

XL was also such a cutie lover. I liked him very much when he was thinking about SC, couldn't sleep cause of him. Staying away from him hahahaha and of course loving him heheheh I love how open he is with SC <333

The ending wasn't rushed I think? I like how XL became a god, tho I didn't really expect it, but again like they said, gods are just powerful ghosts so it was kind of acceptable for XL to beat a god. ofc I wanted more, esp with that last chapter of being with so many people (?) I'm so happy for him. Being a reincarnator was a gift for him. ALSO, I can't forget how funny the fights were between zheng yi and ye zeqing cause of the sherlock vs Moriarty HAHAHAHA and how XL chose a 3rd identity, LOL.

idk if I would reread, cause like I said, there are so many things happening, I can't rest while reading this hahahaha but it is recommended =))

To be honest, I enjoyed the final arc the most. The story got better as it went along.
The instances were alright, and the ghosts were the best part... but it felt like the MC is too OP so it’s not that interesting. There’s not much character development for him or the ML.

Please note that even though the ML is super clingy... this is still a shounen ai. There’s barely any hints of any activity, just kisses. The romance is a slow burn one, as even though the ML is... more>> hardcore from the get go, the MC has no interest in romance and it took a long time for him to develop interest. <<less

There are three issues I have with this novel:

    1. The ML sucks. He's a creep, not only through his excessive, aggressive sexual badgering in book form but also the s*upid dreams. :thinkingface: "I'm certain that my love interest (MC) would really enjoy being chained up to a bed in his dreams and being touched and kissed without consent, especially after he's rebuffed me five dozen times while awake and conscious." It's also nice that MC conveniently is unable to remember these dreams where he's harassed.
    1. The MC is ?????.... more>> He seems to be inconsistently characterized by the author. He's mostly a robot a lot of the times. I think he's emotionally stunted, but there doesn't seem to be a very comprehensive reason why. He's super smart but also kinda dumb, and I mostly say that because he starts thinking that the ML in book form is cute for seemingly no apparent reason. The only characteristic of the MC that I find remotely interesting is his compulsive curiosity.
    1. Theres... like zero tension in any of the instances. The MC just walks around and does whatever he wants with no consequence because he's being protected by ML. The mysteries of the instances and the ghosts will just eventually be solved because the MC will conveniently get hand-held as he takes merry strolls. Then he just deduces everything. The end. I think it's supposed to be funny when people react to him doing supposedly dangerous things and coming out unscathed, but the way the author writes it makes it really matter-of-fact. It doesn't have the comedic punch it should like it does in other novels. It should be suspenseful or it should be funny. But it's neither.
Honestly, the first two ghosts that the MC meets and befriends are more interesting characters than ML or MC. And they don't even do that much. <<less

Personally, I don't understand the praise this novel is getting in the reviews. I'd much rather read other novels of this genre which are better, like The Earth Is Online and Card Room.

I can't really think of any pros but I sure do have a lot of cons to talk about. This novel is pretty bland and didn't leave a positive impression on me even though I've read close to a hundred chapters already, waiting for it to get better. But it didn't. It's not bad, just... forgettable. Really forgettable.


  • The MC: Bland and two dimensional. Although you come across a bit of the main character's back story, it doesn't really connect with you because the MC is so utterly bland. I've read so much and still, I don't have a strong impression of him. It's his stoic and cold disposition (common in Chinese novels) which makes him such an uninteresting main character. You don't understand what's going on in his head, and the lack of connection to him just sucks the fun out of reading.
  • The Love Interest: Eighty-eight chapters in, and I don't have strong feelings for this guy either. Eighty-eight chapters. He is just this bunch of random lines that shows up to expand the chapter length. The only qualities I've come across through his random and jarring appearances in the novel is that he's obsessive, creepy, a stalker, and just an unpleasant person.
  • The Side Characters: They are just there to highlight how awesome the MC is. While most people are struggling and can't figure out how to solve the mysteries, the MC is literally breezing through it, charming these foolish side characters with his indestructible main character halo. They are just as out of the loop as the readers.
  • The "Missions": Tragically uninteresting. In the other novels I mentioned before, the missions made sense and the reader was able to see the logic and how the characters achieved the result that they did because it made sense. But here? Nothing makes sense. It just happens and while the other characters are just as out of the loop as us readers, the MC smoothly sails through it with absolutely bullsh*t logic. None of the clues connect and you have to just sit there and read what's happening because you cant make sense of it - like why did the MC randomly stab the ghost ship without logic or reason? And then BAM, in the next chapter this random thing he did to seemingly check the sharpness of a weapon is the ultimate clue the MC knew all about. It's gets annoying real fast. Basically, the arcs don't make sense and they are just there to make the readers go "oh man, I don't understand anything but the MC is so OP, he made logic disappear and arrived at this conclusion which didn't even need build-up and logic. Wow, he is so cool". No, he isn't cool. The missions are shit.
Oh, I remember what I liked about this novel. First off, the translation quality is good and secondly, the MC collects ghosts which are pretty cute (their behavior, I mean). That's it.

Really good. I really like this story. I heard people say it's bland and repetitive and the MC has no personality, but I completely disagree.

  • The story is funny, each world is interesting and involving, (and most importantly not too long, contrary to some worlds in Card Room, for example. Like the Heart Rooms. I found myself almost completely skipping them after the C level ones...)
  • The MC has various (though subtle, perhaps) layers to him. I found him particularly cute at times and cool at others. It is true that he's perhaps a bit too OP compared to others, but each main side-character still does its part in the end. They each have their own skills set, characteristics and background, whcich makes them more likable. Besides that, I like the MC's attitude with ghosts. Although at times a bit exaggerated by now, it's still funny and can immediately break the tension.
  • The ML is, perhaps, the only thing which I really don't like. He's a total creep and a control freak - at least at the beginning. More than when he's a yellow little book, I had difficilty swallowing his behaviour when he manifested himself at the start. Especially during those dubious dreams (?). That is not how a healty relationship should be like. Consent is important, people. Fortunately, in the latest chapters he starts calming down. Especially in his human form he has quite a good personality for now, caring after the MC. The dreams (?) have gotten better as well.

    Contrary to what others may think, what I like most about
  • this pairing is exactly it's slow pace. The MC doesn't fall in love with a book and, although he likes the ML's human person, he does not fall immediately in love with that either. Especially not after hearing the other's reason for liking him is just that he is 'cute'. And the true reason the ML is after him is obviously not really just because he likes his face, contrary to what he says (I'm really curious to know what's behind that as well). In short, this is really an interesting story and my favourite of its gender so far. Although it has some elements which aren't exactly good (like the, at times, exaggerated OPness of the MC or the creepiness of the ML at the beginning) it is, overall, still menageable and a pretty good read.

Revisited review.

Can't help, but revisit my own review due to the shift of my opinion of this novel. The shift happened due to the following thoughts.

The more you read, the more you realize that the "romance" part of it is not exactly unbalanced, so far it's practically dead. Some people might have rushed, while tagging this as 'yaoi' and my problem doesn't lie in that, since I never care if the story is not romance-oriented, but it makes the story look odd, especially the furniture ML. With instances coming and... more>> going one after another and his inability to appear before the MC, unless it's his thoughts as Little Yellow Book, his presence in the story is very little. Here and there he expresses his yellow thoughts, and sometimes there's a line how he mysteriously appears and disappears, but it totally ruined his character and doesn't allow his character to be redeemed. Why redeemed? Well, from first chapters the ML strangely acts as if they're a married couple with MC and except from yellow thoughts it seems nothing comes out from his mouth. This makes you care less and less about him and their relationship with Xiao Li at all. I'm sure some want the switch of ML for someone else because of his weird attitude. Though he's not the worst ML I've seen, at least he doesn't kill people left and right because someone dared to look at his precious.

Next part is the story. Since it's an ironic horror it has a lot of humor twists based on MC's actions and words that contradict "standard" behavior in dangerous or ghostly situations. He befriends ghosts, trolls them etc. Unlike other reincarnators Xiao Li doesn't see the instances as something horrible, due to his lacking emotional range, life and autistic behavior (thanks to obvious family neglect), he perceives meeting ghosts and solving puzzles as biggest excitement there is. But due to repetitive actions this can become a bit tedious, especially when real life parts get so little of time and instances follow closely one after another. Xiao Li started quite charismatic, he acts quite logically so it's interesting to follow him. Plus he doesn't fall for ML's provocation, which I think is a plus, since ML comes as overbearing. But again, if you repeat same formula for who knows how many times, it will stop working.

All in all, the first review I wrote was around 50 chapters. And it was good. At 100 chapters my impression dimmed quite a bit. In the end I'm dropping it since I can't bring myself to like this genre of eternal game and escape. <<less

Well, this novel was definitely 'five star' material in the beginning. The protagonist was cool and collected, and the instances were very interesting. However, as the arcs go on, things become convoluted. A few primary problems rise up.

    1. The instance 'backstories/explanations' stop being interesting, and stop making sense. You can tell that the author is trying or something, but she ultimately is unable to pull it off. The arcs become confusing and rather 'unnecessary' feeling, where there is no longer anticipation or interest in what's happening.
    1. The 'challenge' behind... more>> it all soon goes away. It was fun in the beginning, because there was still an element o danger and surprise, with the MC having to use actual skills, caution and brainwork. However, at the chapter where I am, it just becomes the MC coming across a problem, and before there is a chance or teamwork or logic, one of his ghosts happens to be the solution. There is no built-up tension or anticipation by the reader. At this point, it's like these problems were made exclusively to be solved by Xiao Li and Xiao Li only. It's hard to read through without thinking, 'oh, blatant plot armour... again.'
    1. The MC is bland. It was interesting in the beginning when the focus was on the instances and not specifically on him. However, as the story becomes flatter, you can't help but notice how utterly boring the MC is. There isn't even an inner monologue. He's just there... saying two sentences per chapter. It gets tedious.
    1. The ML is just weird. That's it. He's your typical cold, secretly over-powered guy. Except he's similarly boring. He's slightly more interesting, with his unexplained obsession with the MC, but yeah... that's about it.
In summary, the story had potential. But then the author started to pile the plot armor on, like the MC could do no wrong, and to the point that it had lost it's all-important sense o 'mystery'. The instances become something to slog through, rather than to puzzle out and enjoy. It also serves to mention that the 'puzzles' stop making sense. <<less

Nice plot with elements of comedy and horror.

The MC is intriguing and, thank god, doesn't have a holy Father attitude. ML is cute and a big pervert but he takes good care of his wife.:)

The horror plots are small but bewitching. I got hooked up once I started.

the MC reminds me a little of Master Gu from A Crowd of Evil Spirits at first glance, (less overly nice), but the differences become clearer as the story progresses. he's clever and obsessive about solving puzzles and the only time he really seems to feel strong emotion is when he's excited about the instance he's in. ... more>>

the explanation that he can befriend ghosts and has no fear because he has no emotions doesn't fly; excitement is an emotional response and he's always excited when it's time to solve the puzzle. his emotions are dampened and I would go so far as the say he has some autistic tendencies, but he does have them.


the copies are interesting enough but not scary, they seem to exist mostly to show how quirky the MC is compared to everyone else and the time in between, when he's in the real world, is mostly skipped over at first; it's not until the end of the story that reality sort of comes into play and even then it's got nothing to do with his life in reality.

As for the ML...I didn't like him.

I'm not a big fan of the "I will stalk you and sexually harass you until you give in" type of ML and the NC dreams, among other things, is way beyond Not OK. the author seemed to realize it and eventually stopped with the worst of it and the ML stopped harassing the MC through the book and started showing up in person. He continues to stalk the MC, who says he finds it cute, and is possessive as hell, which the MC says makes him feel safe. this is a completely alien way of thinking compared to my own and my friends/family, and I don't get it. I lost a lot of my enthusiasm for the MC once he threw away his initial independent nature and concluded that he enjoyed being owned by the ML.


also, I don't understand the basic logic

behind changing nicknames from Sherlock to Moriarty. the first guy knew his real name and game name already, so why does it matter that the second guy also knows his real name and game name? the change in the nickname seems to be there purely for causing comedic misunderstandings between two side characters and makes no logical sense within the story. why does he suddenly care about a name when he hasn't cared about much of anything (except playing games) since the whole story started? then he adds a third name, just so the author can write more unnecessary verbal infighting between fans on the forum for filler.


the romance is one-sided until quite late in the story; it's not so much a slow burn as a slow climb from 0 to 15 through 3/4 of the novel and then it shoots up abruptly from 15 to 90

once the prison instance is over. maybe the author didn't want to spend more time actually writing about them building up their relationship; they just jumped from luke-warm to scalding with very few steps in between. the MC went from "I don't want to fall in love" to "I don't know if I like you like that" and then skipping directly to "Our bond is eternal and we will be together forever." some people will find it romantic, it just made me roll my eyes and move on.


the end was rather messy and sloppy compared to the rest of the story and I kind of got the idea that the author was in a hurry to end it but wasn't sure how. I'll probably reread it once the translator finishes in case I just misunderstood a few things.

thank you to RT, the translation so far is wonderful. my final rating for the story itself is 3.5 the extra.5 is for the translator. <<less

... more>> *exhales* (◕ᴗ◕✿) Okay, I feel better now. I have indeed felt some regrets when I came across this story a few times before but didn't put I in my list to read bcz of the reviews; but it's fine now bcz I read it after all and I'M SO GLAD I DID (ʃƪ^3^) ♥️ After all, it was 🌈RAINBOWTURTLE☁️, one of my favorite translators who translated it !!!♡ (ӦvӦ。)

Everyone has their right to not like this story, the characters, pacing, etc. Especially when it came to the relationship between the main couple but the story doesn't deserve that much venom against it. It even fooled the me who likes to view things on my own before drawing own conclusions. It worries me about how many stories like this that have been buried under the radar but I'm really happy the author and translator stuck to it. I'm also happy that I've finished just when it had two chapters left so now I'll just wait for the extras ✨✧◝ (⁰▿⁰) ◜✧✨ <<less

DROPPED!! (๓´罒`๓)

I dont know where to start.. Wasnt born lucky my ass... If the other reincarnators were to act like the MC they will end up dead.

The MC is so bland its irritating. I know they are trying to make the MC look I dont know 'cool' maybe but his indifference is infuriating. At this point the MC is literally a robot. (╮°-°) ╮┳━┳ (╯°□°) ╯ ┻━┻

The ML is non existent. I dont understand how the author is planning to progress with the romance plot. I swear I see... more>> the doll girl more then the ML. There is no interaction between the ML and the MC. Mostly its the MLs one-sided chatter that reminds us that this book even has a romance tag. At first I tried induring it but later it got really ridiculous to the point where I felt like throwing the laptop when the MC and the book interact. (ꐦ •᷄⌓•᷅)

There is so much problem its frustrating. All on all I hate the MC's character.ଲ (≖ᾥ≖) ꐦ

I rate this 2 stars not much to say but it's super boring. MC has no dimension he's cold/ (possibly autistic) and doesnt really do anything except run around aimlessly he's built up to be this super intelligent charachter but nothing he does actually represents that it's more like he's really lucky plus the ML stops him from facing any consequences in game so he just scurries around. Genuinely nothing exciting has happened maybe it's because I've read quite a few of these horror game stories but this one is... more>> just particularly boring theres no intrigue no mystery no face slapping/ revenge plotlines even the romance is flat. Like ot starts off kinda interesting but the plot never picks up its so meh. <<less

i read this through MTL. from BL point of view it's really a sloooow burn romance. well, so if you want to find some romance you got the wrong corner. the story contain many arcs, and every arcs have different horror and mysteries inside. the mysteries and horror plot are good, but the characters foundation are lacking. overall, it's worth noting for if you want a little break from dog blood drama novels, or you just want to read some horror and mysteries with BL taste in it.

every story arc... more>> are quite intriguing. it's a mixed up horror and mystery solving, so I really like it. the horrors also quite thrilling, somehow makes me didnt want to read it in a dark room LOL. also, the horror stuff are taken from many sources, from the cliches school horror types, into bloody marry, sadako, even western devil. though actually I really wanted for it to explore the folklore in China, so I feel a little bit dissapointed.

the characters are so-so. personality wise, the MC is actually just a simple character. he's super lucky. I still dont know if he has a supernatural power or not until the latest chapter, but he's lucky and got a golden finger that is the OP ML. also, he likes to bully the ghost and treat them just like any other human, so he somehow makes acquaintance with some powerful ghost and collected them. whenever there's a ghost tried to hurt him it'd always failed, whether it failed because he bullied the ghost, got a help from the ghost he collected, or it failed because the interference from the ML (the ML is OP). so the MC doesnt really has a good character building. still I ignore it since I just read it for the mystery and horror LOL.

the supported characters are even more worse, even though they've appeared many times, they dont really have a solid existence, like they're just there to be the younger brothers the MC collected. whether they're there or not it's actually make a little difference to the MC, since at the end the MC will wander around by himself searching for clues, collecting ghost for his army, and finally cracking the mystery. so, the other chara are a perfect example for the word "cannonfodder". also, aside from MC and ML, until the latest chapter there's still not one human character worth noting for, not for a rival nor an enemy.

the romance... it's still ongoing, so even until the latest chapter 163, the MC and ML still having push and pull relationship, though actually the MC's feeling now is starting to bud, not bloomed yet LOL. many people think the ML is a yandere or a freak because he likes pestering the MC and describing his desire so boldly through written words. but actually I feel the ML is still normal, his twisted thoughts are just a bunch of words, it's just like you're typing/writing madly on your diary or social media expressing your love toward your idol, something like : "ahhh my husband I love you", "i want to marry you now", "i want to kiss you so badlyyy", "ahh I'm so jealous to the girl next to you", "ahhh please just look at me"----- and stuffs like that, so it's actually understandable right? beside, the ML doesnt do anything crazy to the MC, so I dont understand why people called him a freak. <<less

The "god of fear and bad luck".

It suits the name of the novel so well, I couldn't not wrote it.

I need to warn people : you read this novel to laugh, not to be scared. Don't think about thriller or gore (even if some scenes or instances are a little... more than soft let's say).

... more>> This novel is for people who wants to destress and have an amusing time.

What I really appreciate is the imagination of the author. You're not gonna be bored and trust me every instance is not the same. You won't read the same 'instances/chapters building' twice.

So : Something you won't know there are extras coming when the author will have time/want to post them.

I totally recommend this novel to have a good laugh, especially to people who are afraid of survival/horror novels, I think it's a good step to reading one without all the humor.

Have fun ! <<less

Dropped. I didn't get attached to any characters, even the MC. MC is very... meh. Nothing can faze him and he has no personality. ML is so far like a typical perverted gong that I would've been fine with if it weren't for the MC to be so tasteless. I need some spice from our protagonist! He has nothing--not an ounce of personality, but just a driver to scenarios.

the MC is a mix of the MC in a crowd of evil spirits and ghost knows what I experience.

MC is the my pace type of guy, he has an extremely curious side that it always gets ahead of him. Being a mistress born MC had some sort of this unfeeling attitude about his family. He has this introverted attitude of just being by himself.

As for ML he could come of domineering and aggressive. Always taking advantage of MC in his dreams. The only thing I like about him so... more>> far is he just let MC satisfy his curiuosity. Right now his identity is still a bit mysterious though

the devil had hinted that ML might be some god or a higher being

. Oh he also redeems himself by stopping his harassment and showing up in person.

As for solving things.

MC tend to explore things, observe then deduce. He is a risk taker and like I said a my pace type of guy. <<less

BEFORE. I have read the first half of the story and due to the influence of the reviews (I tend to read reviews first before reading the story) I found it bad and boring, that's why you should never read reviews, it's a bad influence when you want to have a good read.

NOW. I happen to stumble upon the story again and decided to read it again and give it a chance. It's been a year since I have read the first half of the book,... more>> and I foegot some of those negative reviews, so why not give it a try? AND GODDAMN IT! IT'S SO GOOD. This novel is like an old-age wine, it only gets better with time. Now I really can't undeestand the bad reviews🤣

And about the story, it a combination of Horror-comedy and with a very slow paced romance.


From what I remember, it's within chapter 190+ where their relationship really bloomed


And to all people who keep on saying how annoying the ML is, get out! It's just his way of expressing his affection since he can't really be together with MC (together means being beside MC, can't touch MC, and can't kiss MC), so it comes out somewhat excessive because that's the only thing he could do. To speak/convey. And to all people who said he's aggressive and a yandere, well it's not like he acted on it, duh! So piss off, negative reviews! <<less

i love the ghost. Specially the mic ghost (fan gize?? I think) he is the most sane one ever oh and although the ghosts dislikes xiao li because he abuses (?) them they still helped him lol (like a typical tsundere)

I also love the god of lies (and kinda ship lies and death... im weird yikes)

Im glad xiao li doesnt hate shen chenzi's possessiveness and want a "crazy love" where the lover will only look at xiao li only.

i love when they played at the abyss hohoho I can imagine it OOPS

Edit. I tried it 2nd time... nope. I wish we can edit stars rating because I would give this 1.

I started reading because of the horror concept. Going into instances to fight ghosts seem interesting. However I couldn't make it through even the early chapters.

The MC is.... really bland? He seems like robot with no emotion. Normally you would expect people to freak out a bit when they suddenly get toss into a world with ghosts that can kill you. The MC gave no reactions at and, no internal... more>> monologue for you to understand what he's thinking. There are plenty of calm or logical protags, which are fine, but MC just felt "empty." He barely has internal dialogue for you to understand what he is thinking

You don't even get the logical steps to how he arrive at the answer. He just wander around trying to find clues like a robot and it speed forward to the right answer. Oh, or if he need help the ML will conveniently show up like ghost and bail him out.

MC just accept the situation without any question about wtf are they fighting ghosts. I would like to get explainations of what these games are and why they are trying to fight ghosts in the 1st few chapters at least to establish a setting.

The ML from what I've seen is a creep who make unnecessary sexual comments constantly to MC as the book. There's even hint that he touched MC while he slept right after the 1st instance when MC came home like?? I barely met the ML and I thinks he's annoying already.

There's potential for setting but author didn't put enough effort setting it up. Maybe I'll give it a try later but I'm going to leave it DNF for now <<less

I really love this novel! MC is smart and strong. People seem to think that ML solves everything for him when in fact ML doesn't normally do anything. He stays as the book and occasionally comes into the instance as another participant in order to see MC. ML does not actually do anything, MC uses his brain and his ghosts to solve instances. MC was able to get his first ghosts at the beginning by helping them while completing the instance. They have since then used their strength to help... more>> him deal with other ghosts. He also occasionally tames other ghosts himself. Tan li is his strongest ghost currently and his number one ghost helper. Yes I'm aware that Xiao li can be categorized as op, but it's not illogical. A large part of it is his ghosts helping him capture troublesome ghosts and him using his wits. I will agree that ML weirds me out but he hasn't really made any progress so far or done anything too weird. And Xiao li is far from liking him at this point. The interactions in this book are really fun! I would recommend it but feel free to read other reviews :) I am currently up to date on the released chapters. <<less

Oh I love it. I love how the MC is an introvert but feel comfortable with ghost. I dont read horror novel often yet this is the second time then I love their horror aspect as its give a slight anxiety when reading along. The only thing I found bad about this novel is the ML. At the start I could guess who is the ML and had supported him greatly. I like how kinky he is. But with the lack of romance I wasnt looking forward to the ML.... more>> I blame the fact that he seem to be taking up MC time. I had personally fell in love with MC which means I might be biased. Anyway The best part of the novel is listening to the ghost calling ML the evil spirit. Also I love BLOODY MARY. <<less

This story is really good. At the beginning I found it a bit boring but this is one of those rare stories that only get better with time.

If you like good horror, fantastic translation and cute romance, this is perfect for you.
