Brilliant. Power, and Wealth is an unique insight into China's hierarchy. A world of false etiquette, submissiveness, networking, nepotism, and connections. For anyone to thrive in China's political environment they either have to be Red Nobility, or utterly ruthless. Alternatively just like our hero, they can have have a 'cheat' - when I think 'back', time will reverse by 60 seconds. Not as OP as some other cheats, but for those with exceptional concentration...60 seconds can mean the difference between being a living millionaire... or a dead unknown.

Finished this novel a while ago. For me, it was quite the journey. Though, I'm quite unsatisfied with the ending. The novel was really good for the first 1200 chapters, after that, it just spiraled down into a pile of mess. Anyways, here is my review:

The plot: This novel had a quite simplistic and repetitive plot. That being, MC doing his job -> MC gets pissed off by somebody -> MC gets that somebody back -> That somebody gets the MC back -> MC ruins that somebody's life... more>> -> That somebody calls in backup -> MC ruins that backup's life -> MC is safe and sound -> MC doing his job -> MC discovers that the people in the erea he is governing is underdanger -> MC saves their life -> MC gets praises -> MC gets promoted -> MC goes somewhere else to work -> Repeat. Of course, there are some exceptions, but it mostly goes like this. Some events I mentioned might be replaced by different type of events to make it seems not that repetitive. As long as you ignore some of the repetition, you should be fine enjoying the novel. The Powers: You don't expect the MC just to have only the power to turn back 60 seconds in time, do you? No, it would get boring pretty quickly. And I have some good news for you! As the novel goes on, he gets more powers to serve his political life.

Back: It rewinds time at the user's will. If the user says only "Back", it will rewind time by 60 seconds. The user can, however, rewind time less or more than 60 seconds by adding some more information at the end of the command. For example, if the user says "Back 3 seconds", time will rewind by 3 seconds, "Back 5 minutes", time will rewind by 5 minutes. Of course, this is assuming that the user had accumulated 5 minutes worth of time to rewind.

Menu: Shows the remaining accumulated time. 60 seconds worth of time will be provided at 00:00 everyday.
Stop: Stops all time activities except for the user's own time. The MC used this command to perform magic tricks and create proof that he totally didn't kill anybody because that somebody tried to kill his girlfriend. I mean, as much as I love your complex schemes and stuff to get back and humuliate at the ones who've wronged you, you could've just done it with a much more humiliating, simple and funny way, like, unzipping and making their pants fall off in public, putting p*rn pictures in their pocket or putting a banana in front of their way to make them slip in front of everybody. Lmao, I could only imagine how funny it would be if he did that.
Reverse: Rewind the time of one specific object. This might seem useless at first conpared to Back, whose power rewind time of all Objects to a previous state. But, this is actually one of the most useful commands as one second of Reverse will rewind an object back one day. This means that the user can use 10 minutes of accumulated time to rewind an object 2 years! Cancer? Reverse. Your beautiful face is ugly now? Reverse. You're an old man now? Reverse. Oh, your bones are broken? Use Reverse goddamit.
Forward: Brings an object into its future state. One minute of Forward brings the object's state one day into the future. The effect of Forward is 60x less than Reverse. The only real use of this command in the novel is to bring the MC's mail box one day or one month into the future and read the newspaper of the future.
Slower: Makes time goes slower so you can put out 1Million punches into the opponet's face in less than a second. Or with the combination of Back & Reverse, you can perform a god-like surgery that no human should be able to perform.

The commands, while fun, get use less and less as the story progresses. At some point in the story, it is only ever use to fight. And the author doesn't even show him using those commands at that point in the story. The Ending: When you get to around 1700s chapters, you can see that the author has gained a clear interest in Superstars. And I think that's the reason the novel ended at 2030 instead of 3000 or 4000 chapters. At the end of the novel, the MC is clearly nowhere near of the apex of his carrer yet and his next novel is IRAS, so I can safely assume that his interest in Superstars was what that killed this novel. <<less

Okay, I'm a bit guilty since I did read it further than I should. I really expected the MC to reflect over his personal life. It was my mistake.

  1. The MC is a lazy ass who only move his butt if his position is under attack.
  2. The MC is a horny 24yo who act like a teenager in heat.
  3. The MC is a cheating bastard who cheat his companions at her back without even batting an eye.
  4. MC guilty trip over his cheating took 2 phrases with 4 words
  5. Plot is repetitive, as in 150% of novels who have any kind of supernatural power or constant conflicts, I don't find it demeaning to the book.
  6. It's a modern book, current times. MC is a cheating bastard with not a ounce of morals when he's the one in the wrong side.
  7. MC blatantly abuses his authorities left and right but if someone just direct speech to him and he doesn't like the tone, he'll try to uncover every bad apple of the person and his family and f*ck him up.
Please, do read if you have read this far in this humble review and is still OK with the scum of this book.

Read it all

The author clearly has a thing for older women in stockings. Main character sleeps around and doesn't care if they are married or not.

Story feels both rushed in the that everything in the almost 2000 chapters happens in just a few years, but many arcs are dragged out far longer then they need to be.

Having put all the time to read it in, the ending is extremely unsatisfying as the author decided to call it quits as the MC starts getting higher up in the political systems and... more>> rushes to the end.

Despite it's many flaws, it managed to keep me interested enough to read all the chapters (maybe skipped a few of the dragged out chapters), so still giving it 4/5 despite the ending. <<less

Slice of life of the very ordinary, very Chinese people. The MC has the most feeble OP, but he uses it to its max potential.

This novel is definitely not for Western country's reader.

Seem like the translator wiuld drop it. Just now or then.

Spoiler alert!

I was enjoying it (although uncomfortably) until chapter 204 when he continued to mol*st someone in a bad situation. So he saves a mother and daughter because he felt that they needed help from "bad" people, and yet, he's abusing his position by mol*sting the mother. I don't know what kind of screwed up brain this author has. Super Hypocrite MC. But he'd be super pissed if anyone tried that with his girlfriend, mom, friend, niece, etc... ret*rded.

Dropped the novel as I couldn't stomach anymore of this crap.... more>> Essentially we have a really horney and brainless MC who is a hypocrite and a bastard. Really hard to cheer for someone like that. <<less

WARNING:- This comment contains spoilers read at your own risk. Grammar not good there might me mistakes.

This novel is good if you want to read something new other the cultivation novels but I still hate this novel. Read more if you want to know.

All those who have written the bad reviews, I agree with you all specially @Shyboy. Although I have no problem with the harem as basically most Chinese novels have polygamy but the tough part is, he doesn't solve his harem problems but just tells them he is... more>> not worthy of them and they should go find another man and have a good life. Wtf, try solving the problems and if you can't then just don't create troubles. After setting temporary truce between Qu Yunxuan and Xie Huilan he goes after Yu Meixie. He again and gain says he feels guilty for making Yu Meixie hold his dic*, but after doing that he will once again ask her to help him masturbate.

This novel is best for those people you know who like righteous guys and have strong sense of justice with a bit of failed romance where the MC goes and fights with villains after every one or two chapters. He thinks above he is above everyone. He says he is law abiding citizen but a that is a fu**ing irony. During the Jin De Me Casino incident he submitted adultery reports and evidences against County Party Secretary because he says it is against laws, Holy Shit, he is married to Xie Huilan and still f*cking Qu YunXuan and now he is right.

And I also wonder if Lady Luck is also in his harem, you know what everything he want will be completed. Usually it is very hard in stone gambling and a Crystal might not come in a whole batch of stone but he can easily get a precious crystal in stone gambling, it is like whenever he does gambling the other has to suffer loss. This is not even related to his time ability. <<less

Where do I start? I initially liked this novel a lot. I had never read anything related to being a government employee. But, I guess the author ran out of ideas soon.

What I liked-

    1. Fresh Concept (Initially)
    1. He's the only supernatural power user in the world as of now.
    1. Faceslapping
What I didn't like -

    1. MC is dumb. He does not use his powers at the right time and always relies on his power. It feels as if MC is useless without these powers even when he has his powerful post.
    1. Spoiler

      MC is a cheating bastard. I am at Chapter 600 and by now he has 5 women. He married 1, had a child with another. He also forcefully brought a homeless woman into his harem because she was pretty. Not only that, he even had lewd thoughts about the homeless woman's 14-year-old daughter and even explained what her breasts felt like at one point. He tries to guilt-trip his women so they accept him. If they get angry at him he just goes to another girl and bangs her. He's also trying to mess with a married woman. MC is beyond immature. He never even tries to solve his harem problem.

    1. I am dropping this novel at 600 because his Harem now takes most part of the chapters and I seriously can't digest how he treats them. At this point, I just wish MC dies so all these women can go back to their lives and live normal lives.

I can't continue reading this novel it's so bad and has no elements or Idea nor development the author keep posting chapters just to get the readers emotional and always everything goes wrong in the novel which makes the MC mad with rage nothing is going good.

If you're into rage and actions with no plot or goal and build up go for it.

I can't believe how low the rating for this novel is. It is so much better than those other tr*sh generic wuxia novel these days. Who cares if the novel has slight racism. It's a great read to past the time. Probably better for young adults and up to read.

This is probably a 4.5 star novel, but I'm giving it a 5 star to balance out the low ratings that a bunch of anti-china readers made.

tr*sh novel.

It was entertaining for the first 200 chapters and went downhill from there.

The MC is beyond immature, a cheating bastard and never learned anything from his mistakes.

What a mess.

I am surprised by myself that I had the stomach to finish this novel. Although, I skipped a lot of chapters because of its nonsense.

I really tried, but the MC is beyond s*upid, and the plot is beyond repetitive, the thing that I hate is the MC's personality, the opposite of calm and collected. He has a side character personality, when talking to his bosses in government, he's always fidgeting, shaking and stammering, if there is problem at work, he always keeps saying fine well see but he does shit, he panicks a lot and doesn't plan or be proactive against his enemies, solutions come to him in a way that insults our intelligence,... more>> he reacts to his enemies instead of being proactive, which is always a sign of lazy writing

I personally skipped every conflict because how the author makes the character solve it is unfullfilling and always leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

This is my opinion, other people may feel differently. <<less

I like the book, the premise is nice and the power is also novel. The MC is pretty good, upright and honest but with enough flaws to make him imperfectly perfect. So, why is it 3 stars and why have I stopped reading this book? 2 reasons

1) Harem. Okay, I saw the harem tag but I was hoping it would be less pronounced. This book suffers greatly due to the harem tag. The MC is portrayed as an upright individual but the act of going around and seeing multiple women... more>> behind each other’s backs leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. After a while, it gets really difficult to see the MC as a good guy, and that is jarring because the author firmly asserts that the MC is a good guy.

2) Nationalism. You know the trope. Everyone except the <insert nationality of author here> are a bunch of villainous tr*sh that can be easily defeated and will be defeated by the MC who is the paragon of justice in the world. Cringe. <<less

I was searching for good harem novel and somehow I stumbled upon this novel. I am gonna be completely honest, the novel was exceptional in the beginning. The characters, the plot, everything seemed fresh and well written. The author has a knack for mature woman which also seemed to align with my own personal likings. But since it's based in China where polygamy is prohibited, the MC only marries one member of his harem. That didn't seem fair for the other harem members as every single one of them were... more>> likable and well written characters. I was disappointed with the ending, so the 3 stars, otherwise it's a nice read. <<less

The main character is not worth reading about. The side characters aren't fleshed out enough to care about. The villains at first glance seem to be villains until you get through enough chapters to realize that the main character is doing the same things as the villains.

I don't understand why people enjoy reading it, honestly.

I have read 11 reviews before me, some already finished the book and complaining many things about MC bad things. I agree though, I can see this since MC met the 2nd girl, he probably cheat her gf. I saw the harem tag, and I got worried how it'll turned out, based on other reviews he'll cheat instead of solving the biggest problem in harem genre. But I need to say I haven't read the cheating part, I already feel uncomfortable when he said he is still single even though... more>> he already f*ck the 1st girl, rather forcefully in my narrow minded opinion. The romance with 1st girl isn't that great aside desperate horny young man want to f*ck hot babe, I don't know if you're okay with something like that but I don't like it personally. You can read other reviews about MC power and plot, yes it's repetitive like other face slapping novel, but I like the 1st girl character and probably drop this after MC bang another girl behind her back. I'll update this later <<less

Pure wish-fulfillment story of a loser with a cheat. The story actually shows how useless the main character is throughout the whole story without his powers. He is a sycophantic, self-righteous ass-kisser with no talents. He never seems to achieve anything at all without his powers or can use them in a creative way to his advantage.

I'd only recommend this for people looking for a guilty pleasure, turn your brain off novel about a guy who rises up the ranks and amasses wealth.
