Post-’80s Cultivation Journal


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

Zhang Jiaohua, just another ordinary Post-80, with no speciality compared to his peers. Same food, diet and play, acting like a spoiled child towards his parents, towards his Grandpa and Grandma like a Tyrant, getting into fights and scuffles with village brats, stealing one mao from parents to go buy a popsicle, picking grapes to eat from the grapevine in Zhang Jiujin’s house, going to the mountains to fish out birds nest…….just the same, just the same, there was nothing unusual in any way.

At the age of six years he experienced an unusual event, that completely changed his life path.

Great Dao is Life, Life is Great Dao.

Good story of pre-modernized rural China, with a bit of daoism & cultivation as the *background*. Story of 7 yo boy who was born in the poorest rural village where rice grain is sold 3 cents a pound. The story _ultra slowly_ tells his life, along with atmosphere of '80 (which like USA/EU of 1940 era!)

Everything evolve around the small village which has no electric, just kerosene lamp and candle, no plumbing water but only running stream. Most luxury entertaining item is 14-inch black&white TV. Very nostalgic.

Not only MC's... more>> life, but tens of village people life too. Do not expect the flying sword or mountain destroying qi. Just the slow life of the people, children, dogs, farmers, aunts, uncles, friends, teacher. Day after day, night after night. Life in the clean and pure village reveals itself to your mind.

If you love Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House series, this novel is for you. If you never read them, should think carefully before click the first chapter.

BTW, this story is written better than the previous.

UPDATE : 24 Feb 2017. Reduce the star.

Seem that the author can't escape from the 'writer block syndrome'. The later chapters become boring and boring and boring. Not 'dao' or 'cultivation' anymore but ordinary novel about tea business.

I really like the previous novel by the author My Daoist Life. This one seems to be just as good. Reading about the rural life in China in the 80s and adding martial arts cultivation is a bit surreal but it just works. It has the feel of magic realism that I usually only find in western novels or Japanese novels like Demon Child by Fuyumi Ono.

Another excellent novel by the author of "My Daoist Life". Just like author's previous work, this story is set in modern world (80s) and it takes realistic take on the society when a child is influenced by the supernatural. If you are tired of usual xianxia/xuanhuan than you should give this novel a try ^^
