Rebirth of the Godly Prodigal


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

“I have to squander; otherwise, won’t it be a waste of my parent’s talent at earning money?” Hong Dali answers a reporter’s question matter-of-factly.

Just after the interview ends, Hong Dali opens the Great Prodigal System’s interface and looks at the various good stuff displayed in it. Stroking his chin, he mumbles to himself, “I just need to squander 200 billion yuan more to exchange for the blueprint of the core technology, Engine Destruction, found in the strongest humanoid mecha weapon, Neo Granzon. Looks like I’ll have to work harder!”

“I want to splurge! I want to squander!”

If you like MC where he is genius but dull blant tasteless with negative IQ and EQ blessed by lady luck that make everything full of coincidence to be luck then congratulations this will be your great novel.

A super rich 2nd generation boy born weak and impotent, until MC crossover with system and take his body. Every action spending money end of making more money (lots of novel with "prodigal" setting use this plot, the most similar is Silly Alchemist, same plot, same action)

Actually it's a nice novel and... more>> fun to read with at least 3, 5 stars if you don't use your brain cells.


So hard to write a review on webnovel, always got deleted.

So I give it 1star <<less

I'd gotten my hopes up for a story with a high-class character and opulent world settings. A story of parties, politics, and business. But this guy is just an idiot, isn't he? A story about a rich guy squandering money is one thing but a story where he flat out says to everyone "I'm going to squander my money" in each chapter and does it in some of the most idiotic ways just isn't interesting or funny. Oliver queen pre-island was a less one-dimensional character/person than this guy.

This author writes... more>> wish fulfillment and that's all this story is good for. And it's some of the most base wish-fulfillment you'll ever see. Want a girlfriend? A big penis? Nice cars? Lackeys? Money? Read this story and pretend like your sorry *ss doesn't exist and everything's possible!... Ugh. Pretty much the only time this would've been alright is if the MC had been a child because at least then it'd be cute and we'd get to laugh at how everyone reacts.

I'd rather read another racist story that craps on western culture than one more chapter of this story. That or actually enjoy myself and rewatch Royal Pains... Arrow... Batman.... Noblesse. Etc.

You know, any of the other (better) stories about upper-class characters?

TL;DR He's basically the Chinese version of Helmeppo except without all the development he got after his daddy died. Mix in a little Draco Malfoy and incest kid from GOT for extra measures and you've got this MC. <<less

well not everyone can read this story and like it only a few who likes slapstick and no brain plot would like this. I have read a lot and while high quality plot and story are good, I find myself sometime searching for slapstick just reading for fun.

This is a slap-stick comedy about an MC who transmigrates into a wealthy young man's body and gets a system thrown into the mix. In exchange for spending money, he can earn status points, which is great because the host's body has poor health and a tiny dick. The previous owner of the body apparently overcompensated for his miniscule man bits and health problems by spending money to the point of becoming infamous for it.

The setting is straight-forward, and there are no major plot holes. Other characters include the fiancee,... more>> who acts as the straight man in their pair, and a financial expert maid/bunny girl. I like the finance expert.

The translations make sense.

Although there are no big errors in this series, it's not all that funny for me either, and entertainment from the MC blowing his money can only last for so many chapters. It's not my cup of tea. HOWEVER, if you like slapstick comedy or are looking for something light to read, then one might work for you. <<less

So, I can see this is meant to be a comedy and some times it is funny but it's not good at all, the MC is stupid ignorant and the author tries too hard to make him funny, he has a system and his main point is to spend money as much as he can for benefits it doesn't matter where you are from you would spend money to make money yet this MC is just spending money "that's not even his" and even if he could make millions off... more>> his ideas author purposely has him not want to take any income "Just so he can keep getting pocket money", I'm not sure if it's something to do with the system or the author but as far as I know it doesn't matter how much he makes but he must always spend so it makes no sense for the MC to be so willful and stupid "Purposely not collecting income" and considering he's from a place where he had to be tight with money there's no way his personality would flip like that overnight just because he's a rich young master... the whole point is to be self-defeating and just spend like a rich youngmaster fine but the MC isn't actually an idiot and seeing him act like this all the time and have the author call him "carefree" is cringe worthy, author could have easily redeemed this book by making MC use his head some more or even just have MC pretended to be smart and act like it was all in his calculations that would have been better that going arround saying I had no idea I just spent the money because I could I wasn't trying to make money I did it by mistake... every thing is basically this and it's boring. <<less

It would be good if he change his attitude not just like a 9years old squandering where he need to burn money but he burning his parent money he's system count he's squandering if it's he's money but he just literally use he's parent money even if he can make money to squander for the system and he's tiny d*ck and statue attributes is 100 so as system is upgraded but he just literally go with the flow of being a prodigal that the major turn off because on the... more>> early chapter he said he just need to go with the flow after his health is normal but now nothing happens his a manipulator in early chapter but now his a spoiled old mentally normal child that being spoiled by his parent it's ok to act but now he's normal can he just be himself it's ruining the vibe if he just acting like the previous host of the body if he's just going to act why introduce another soul to the body if he just act like that? He 's a normal person early now a spoiled child even if he did not have a parent in the past <<less

This is a good read. Specifically for those people who are tired of serious and thrilling novels. Reading this is a good change of pace. Some people will like it and some dont. But its a matter of choice. This is novel is great for fun reading. Just dont take things too seriously and all is good.

This is a really boring novel. The main character just goofs off and luck makes everything work out. He uses his knowledge but there’s no real long-term or sophisticated planning.

This is a perfect example of a really fun idea for a novel that begins in a great way, but the author doesn't know when to end the story, thus causing it to descend into madness/garbage.

To start off, I love the type of humor in this novel. The MC is a silly prodigal who has a huge heart. He never starts anything with anyone, but will end up slapping the faces of anyone who starts something with him (most of the time, without realizing he's even doing it.) I know... more>> the whole premise is the MC having yet another type of "System", but if the novel kept itself grounded in at least something close to resembling reality, my score would be much higher for it.

You can almost point out the exact chapter where the author seemed to have run out of ideas for the original purpose of the novel. I'll write everything else in spoilers.


Pretty deep into the novel, maybe around chapter 700 or so, is when things go off the deep end. Up until this point, things were definitely busy and somewhat crazy, but at the very least, things stuck to THIS WORLD!! Around that time, he's talking to both the president of his country and the president of this story's America. It seemed like the author had run out of ideas, yet had to continue making the story bigger, so guess what!?

Now let's talk about ALIENS and the ZERG!.... What???? Isn't this a novel about a prodigal on earth who spends money like crazy? Now he's traveling the galaxy and actually fighting and killing people?? What????? For so many chapters, he never lifted a fist to fight. Yet suddenly, he kills a person? Don't get me wrong, the enemy was someone who deserved death, but that's just not the kind of novel this was. Suddenly they're focusing on gems that can be socketed into armor with attribute points. They were of course introduced earlier in the novel, but they were used to give health to some people who were sick. Now they're being more like stat points to make all his people stronger so they can't fight this alien invasion better. Isn't this story about a prodigal?? Why is he flying through the sky with lightning in one hand and wind in the other??


It's almost as if the author ran out of ideas, so turned this pretty interesting and unique story into a bland cultivation novel. I guess it stings a lot more to enjoy a story for so long only for it to suddenly disappoint, rather than be disappointed right at the beginning. I'd recommend reading up to when the aliens show up, and then just stop so you won't be disappointed like I was.

EDIT: Also, one thing never meshed well for me from the beginning. The MC is a transmigrator who ended up in the body of this prodigal and is pretty much forced to be a prodigal due to the system. Before this, he was what he constantly referred to himself as a "Goody two shoes". However for some reason, he's INSTANTLY able to fit into the role of a prodigal. There's no hesitation and no embarrassment. He acts like a ridiculous fool, as if that was his personality in his last life. It just doesn't make any sense. There's no inner monologue of something like "Man this is embarrassing, but I have to do it". It's more of a "Hmphh!! They think they can talk to me this way! I'll just smash them with money!!".... What was the point of the transmigration to begin with? Why not just make it the original character who got the system?? The original was a kind person too, but a prodigal at the same time. <<less
