Psychic

Description

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

Have you heard? There’s a certain kind of person in this world, who, even without any substantial contact, and with just a flash of thought, can discern a lot.

Their eyes have the ability to penetrate through to the past, to clarify the present and to break the veil of the future. They can see what you see through your eyes, smell what you smell through your nose, taste what you taste through your tongue, and can even perceive what you think through your heart.

This kind of a person is called—a psychic.

A story about the awakening of a ‘guabi’, who is merely plodding through life, from his deep slumber. (*guabi, a slang term, meaning ‘dead idiot’ = people who are penniless and jobless)

As one of the only stories I've managed to read to the end without getting bored in a long time, it's easy to say I enjoyed this story a lot overall! I liked it so much I even read the MTL since I couldn't wait for the translations, hahah

Each arc was interesting and slowly uncovering the protagonist's past was never boring. What I really enjoyed, however, was the romance aspect which was quite rare for me. It was sweet and moved at a really organic pace which made it really... more>> enjoyable! There were no unnecessary misunderstandings or any nonsense; just two people that steadily cultivated strong trust and love.

On the other hand, I have to admit the pacing gets kind of bad at moments. My biggest issue was definitely the weird focus on social media peanut galleries since they took up so much time and didn't contribute much to the story. I honestly ended up just skimming those parts after some time since they were just unnecessary. The face slapping also got pretty repetitive but the each arc and their twists were still interesting overall.

All in all, it was definitely a fun and interesting read, and I'd definitely recommend giving it a try!

P.S. - Might come back to edit this later and make a cleaner and more comprehensive review of this novel since I only just finished it. <<less

I give this 4, 5/5. However I drop this at Chapter 220. Why? Because of the heavy theme.

I feel so tired reading this until chapter 220, and was forced to think about this until my head feels like flying. After that I need to read a lot of smooth easy going fluff story just so my head won't feel like it get stuffed with cotton or something.

Anyway, if you don't mind the heavy theme, I really recommend this novel. You won't stop guessing who the ML is until around chapters... more>> 100s I think, lmao. The faceslapping is there, the supernatural theme is there, the emotion is there etc etc.

I won't say much about this as other reviewers has done a good job about it. I will probably take this book again once I got the mood, but for now I will let it stay at Chapter 220. <<less

This story is the type that really makes people want to curse humanity by touching on how ugly human nature can become. I can't recall how many times I felt irritated because the humans (if they can be referred to as so) rarely repent on their own, and it often requires a push from the MC before they're confronted with their sins, and even then they refuse to see,

Spoiler

Dear Song Enci, I am looking at you

[collapse]

to the point that the negativity is almost infectious.

Yet, it also touches upon how wonderful humans can be. MC gives a truly omniscient feeling, but despite how he has seen and experienced the dirty parts of humanity, he is still in love with humanity, and that pure faith of his was enough to keep me reading throughout all 294 chapters (will all the hair-tearing, heart-wrenching, disgust-inducing parts).

This is the type of story where I have to take a moment and just sit there and breathe after finishing, because I feel like I've taken something away. (I also need to find something heart-warming to read next, because some of the "villains" in here are truly terrible)

The mystery and crime aspect was really well done, though the members of the police department and all other related departments really leave something to be desired. (I suppose they can't help it though, it's not their fault they're not the MC or ML). Each crime dives into the ugliness of humanity, and though the first crime now seems a bit out of place when looking back, the rest of the cases often are intertwined, and when everything wrapped together to form the conclusion, I felt a sense of satisfaction.

Also, when the tag said Slow Romance, they absolutely meant it. Regardless, the main couple didn't really need hand-holding and kissing and other forms of affection to showcase their relationship. The position the other holds in their heart is clear throughout the story, and can truly be referred to as a bond of trust. Amidst the dog-blood drama of romance, theirs is pure and clean. Even if the whole world is against you, I will still listen and believe, that sort of feeling.

Finding out the author also wrote QWFD was a nice surprise. I can really see how their writing has matured after a few years, and has become more introspective. If QWFD had a bunch of face-slapping and one-dimensional villains, Psychic is much more redeeming and at the same time, much more unforgiving. MC always reminds you that actions have karma, and performing those actions is a choice. For the villains, sometimes you can only sigh and shake your head. Smile for the ones that have been redeemed, and lament that sometimes human nature is stubborn for the wrong things. <<less

It's pretty good, I'd say about 4.5. (Rounded to five stars) It's around 300 chapters long and I wasn't bored for any of it. The only disappointing thing is that it should be classified as shounen-ai and not yaoi.

The MC is hard to figure out at first, but you'll later find he's a very kind person, but also a ruthless one; especially to himself.
As for the ML, you don't really know who it is at first. There's a few choices, one of which I thought the most obvious, and... more>> thankfully I was right, as he's the best for the MC.
Spoiler

It's Song Rui. I think he's quite an interesting character. He's cold, not because of his personality, but because he lacks all emotion/personality at the start. He only starts to gain anything after meeting the MC. The ML and MC work well together, both as a couple and... occupationally.

[collapse]

The novel's biggest weaknesses, in my opinion, are the reactions to face-slapping, and a majority of the villains. By reactions to face-slapping, I mean how people continually doubt the MC even when he's proven themselves multiple times. You'll really start to wonder if these people either live under a rock, or if people are just this... self-righteously ignorant? (I understand that being skeptic of a psychic is normal, but the MC proves himself on a national scale and people still doubt him.)
As for the villains, I'd say most are pretty one-dimensional. They're evil for the sake of power, or wealth, and lack depth. It's probably the novel's biggest weakness. Some characters seem so dense you wonder why they're even alive:
Spoiler

Looking at you, MC's master: Xuan Chengzi. He's blind until the very end... his sister too. So blind she thinks everything she does is right. She's not a bad person per say... she's just quite dumb, and lacks the introspective to realize what she's doing is wrong. She doesn't realize this until her end.

[collapse]

One of it's strengths however, is that some of the 'good' characters will also make s*upid decisions, decisions that'll leave you quite disappointed in them. Some of these characters will realize their mistakes before it's too late, and some won't, and I think that's quite realistic.
A big theme of the novel is cause and effect, or karma. Everything has a consequence, and just because you think you're doing good, doesn't mean you actually are. Everything taken from the world must eventually be returned.

As for the ending, it was satisfactory. I only wish there was more of their relationship after everything is finished... at least parts that would turn it from shounen-ai into yaoi.

Also, I'll spoil the biggest plot point below. Literally only look at it if you're not going to read the novel.
Spoiler

Everything that happens is essentially within the MC's plans. Everything he does is to avoid a future of catastrophe. MC exists so that no one in the world can become a god, as the cost for becoming one would cost too many lives and ruin the earth. For example, his sister saves a lot of people that shouldn't have been saved, as it was their time to die. She does this to accumulate merit. But by doing so, she causes a lot of damage later on, so she then accumulates sin.

Hmm... what to say. This author never fails to impress me. The beginning of the story captured my interest and as it goes on you can see MC will be involed in various cases that makes you think about today's problem among our society, children education, mental illness, the author's gory imaginations, etc etc. The story is deep no doubt. It makes you wonder about what is right and what is wrong. When you do something that you think will benefit others but in the end if it brings nothing... more>> but despair what will you do? What will happen when you indulge someone to no limit? How greed and desire can change someone. Somehow the messages reminds me of the novel Heaven's Official blessings.

The MC's main mission is
Spoiler

to prevent people with power to become God. As for why, that would be another spoiler so you have to read it yourself.

. Initially you might get a feeling that he is a little closed to himself then later he will gradually opens up with little bun and ML. He is slow in his EQ department.

As for the ML, I was confused at first because there are to many potential ML's. But you will know it later who's de man. They are suitable for each other. They depend on each other and are a great team when working together. The ML's way of approch is funny and adorable.

Yes, there's a plot twist. Didn't expect that.

It is a good read. Give it a try. <<less

It's really good. The story is engaging enough and quite a lot of scenes were thought provoking. There is plot and the actions of the MC will be explained later on. The MC will sound op and cold at first but he'll slowly open up and there will be battles that he'll show signs of struggles and work but yeah, he's the protag so...

Anyways, the side character omigash, the side character will be really, really annoying and you'll be like f--- this s--- but you'll continue on anyways just to... more>> see that character be slapped in the face lmao. Really. They're annoying.

The pairing is so cute. They compliment each other really well and you might be surprised on who the ML is~

The pace of the story might be a bit... slow... but the ending isn't rushed which I am grateful for. The romance... is okay might be a bit slow though.

There are scenes in the story that you'll probably feel a bit uncomfortable about.

Spoiler

Especially on how the protag will deal with the antag

[collapse]

Spoiler

when possible love interest does s*upid sh-- that causes harm to the protag and you'll just be like: this is the reason why you're not the ML

[collapse]

Spoiler

There will be a plot twist at the end...I've always thought the MC was kinda shady...

[collapse]

Edit: I just realised who the author is and damn I see the similarities between this and their other books. But I'm quite surprised since the romance in this book is really... restrained <<less

Gosh! If you love a good mystery with plenty of crime and ugly human nature being exposed, this is the novel for you! I simply love the personality of the MC who is selfless and doesn't do things to earn credit but only because that's the duty they feel they have to fulfil.

... more>>
Spoiler

It's ridiculous how ugly human nature is in this story! Damn... the other people who are causing issues can really make you sick to the stomach - specially those causing crimes! Wow... including a disgusting pedophile, disgusting selfishness when faced with money, serial killers chopping people up for fun... Plus plenty of supernatual stuff too but that's honestly not even the sickening part - it's the human heart that's as black as coal that real spoils your trust in humanity!

[collapse]

And also in regards to the ML, well, I was seriously confused in the beginning in the early chapters because there wasn't anyone that really stood out like a super bright light! That's because too many other characters were described in the same way that it throws you off. But when you realise who it is, it's all worth it. The pair are a force to be reckoned with! Heads up though, the romance is SLOW!

But really, if you love seeing people having their face slapped by their own words and actions - multiple times at that! - and the MC doing this without really even meaning to half the time, this is the one for you! I honestly think that you won't regret reading this!!

Edit:
Finished it just earlier today and WOW talk about a plot twist! Putting that aside, I actually teared up at one point!! And truly, anything our MC gets involved in gets blown up 100 times lol <<less

I like the premise a lot but the pacing gets pretty bad.

  1. Every twist comes with a super long explanation and backstory.
  2. There are so many social media peanut gallery scenes in a story where they shouldn't matter much. The only reason he remains a celebrity is so that he can get this one job. Why should I care about what the twitter/weibo mob says about him when it barely affects the story?
  3. The face slapping and chastising of his adversaries is repetitive. If the adversaries take 5 chapters to try to salvage the situation, people will continue to scold and laugh at them in the course of all 5 chapters when just 1 chapter will do.
