This book's author makes it very hard to remain interested in his book. Overall I like the world he built but, he makes repeated stupid plot choices that make it hard to even keep reading. After this review I have decided to put this one hold and read something else and maybe my frustration with the authors horrible writing habits will go down enough to finish the book.

Someone hitting on or trying to steal one of the MC's wives, female family members or other female friends happens about every 20-30... more>> chapters (not an exaggeration). This same plot progression is regurgitated over and over and over (x500).

He writes the MC's wives into idiots. The MC tells them that he is leaving to go look for resources and he may even be gone years in the process and tells them to wait for him at the City they just spent hundreds of chapters working to build. This place was meant to be their home for their family to live in peace. So when the MC vanishes for 10 years what do the idiots do? The leave to look for the MC. Because the idiots left, after just 2 years the City they worked so hard on starts to be corrupted and slow taken over by their enemies. But, where were the MC's most trusted and powerful people who he left behind to protect the city? They went looking for the MC going through an array leading to a small world where many Hidden Sects are located.

What makes this all the more stupid is that at the exact moment he returns from the Small word the group of idiots entered the array leading them in just as he went out. Oh and had the MC not returned at that exact moment the idiots would have all been killed because it was the MC returning that allowed them to survive the trip through the array.

But, the stupidity continues later when the MC finally decides to go look for the idiots (his wives) and of course at just the moment he enters the array another random array pops up in the Small world and of course the idiots decide to go through to return to their Husband but, of course that would be to simple and the array ends up sending them to an even higher plane despite the fact that they supposedly already confirmed the array would lead them back home.

The best part of this book is the fact that it in-cooperates Modern Tech with the Cultivation world but, the author seems to have become bored with that and has now starting writing your average Cultivation LN. Tossing out the unique aspects of the book now that you got your readers on the line is simply bad writing.

After reading the spoiler below its good to see someone else felt where I was coming from.

This novel is very similar to another "modern setting" novel by the same author. In fact, a lot of the plot were borrowed, but less polished.

After "tricking" his users into liking this novel and get it on the shelves (where the author would be paid) the author changed the theme.

The MC will go to other plaines and the story will be changed into your average cultivation harem story. IE: there will be a lot of recycled plots in this order:

MC finds the entrance to another area/plain. Leaves everything behind and goes there. Finds himself extremely weak compared to the others in that area.
Strong opponent appears who is interested in MC's treasures and/or girls.
MC escapes is constantly in hiding and escaping.
He finds some treasures (usually in some auction) and resources, trains, levels up.
Immediately there will be some anonymous opponents which will be offed by MC.
MC defeats all his previous opponents. Opens up a store/city/clan and becomes the strongest.
*repeat.

A lot of text will be wasted on introducing new fantasy material and equipment.

Whereas the first few 100 chapters in modern setting there were some female leads who had some character (albleit annoyingly), they will be reduced to a few mentions. Newer female characters are introduced, but have flat personalities but will eventually be just another addition to the harem never to be evolved anymore.
There will be a lot of buildup, where new characters are on an adventure with the MC, but the author will soon abandon their roles in the story.

The author tries to fill up gaps by having the MC going back to the lower plains but the explanation rarely is satisfying and rather forced. Thumbsup for the attempts though.

The final third of the novel has some annoying time skips, where the MC will be injured/training/meditating/captive/on the run/creating stuff for decades and even centuries. I think the record is 1000 years, where he gets freed from an injury. The rest of the world just happens to remain the same for 1000 years. Nothing happens. All this enemies will just wait for 1000 years before they get into fight with MC's friends in order for the MC to come and save the day.

It becomes ridicilous when in the end he visits the lower plains where the author remention forgotten characters and attempts to explain the MC's past (and implicitly explains the novel's title). With al the timeskips, MC would have left earth for thousands of years. But when he goes back to earth, he'd still be able to go back to his own city...

The ending is rushed as the author apparently had some problems with the publisher.

Conclusion: nice try, try again harder next time.

Seriously this is the first time i've experienced this to this extent. The author is a f**king idiot, the main character for no apparent reason explains nothing, excluding crucial information to others people leading to misunderstandings and problems, casing many people to dislike him, sometimes he just doesn't say anything as if he has a social disability. It is honestly baffling that the author uses this method to progress parts of the plot, like he's some teenage japanese mangaka without imagination. The characters are seemingly bereft of any personality for... more>> the most part, and Ye Mo, the main character is so indifferent to certain things it makes me wonder if he's supposed to be mentally deficient. I'm not sure if the author is trying to pass this off as a "wordly" indifference having reincarnated from being a proficient cultivator in his 'previous life' (although not sure if it's transmigration, it hasn't specified what happened yet) but it absolutely comes off as the opposite. It's oddly frustrating, but I'm still reading it so take what I say with a grain of salt. 3 stars because it's not the worst but doesn't have a number of compelling features. The romantic progression is appalling, as I previously mentioned it hinges on these misunderstandings which appear because of Ye Mo's inability to speak, in which interests these female characters whether they become angry, annoyed, curious or otherwise. No idea why I kept reading, perhaps i'll stop in a short amount of chapters.

It was good until the appearance of a certain character, which the last few chapters have been spent on her. The main character has halted his cultivation and almost everything else, because of this "beauty." There have been a few "beauties" the MC has interacting with better personalities (which both have helped the MC one way or another), but somehow the author has focused on this "beauty" with a bad attitude that is using the MC.
Spoiler

This characters was engaged to the mc's former's body, but after MC was kicked-out of the family, she broke-off the engagement. Then, some young master with a bad reputation is pursuing the female character that was engaged to the MC. In order to prevent him from pursuing her (which we know it will not happen), she is using the MC in order to fake a marriage. The reason the MC decided to help was because she reminded him of his former master, and that is all. He is a re-incarnated soul with prior knowledge and experience, but he did not stop and think about the consequences with the young master and his family. So, this character used to look down on the MC, and she still does and she pays him and when the MC accepts, she looks down on him more. However, the MC is broke so he took the money, and it is obvious the MC is broke because of where he lives. Yet, this witch keeps asking the MC for money, or asks the MC to buy expensive food because she does not have much at the moment.

[collapse]

If the story keeps focusing on this "beauty" any longer, or the MC falls for her, I will drop the series. If this annoying "beauty" disappears, this story can easily be about four stars.

Well, dear users of NU, please place this novel alongside IRAS (I'm really a superstar). Once again, we have the usual dose of racism, the usual dose of unending "coincidences" where our protagonist stumbles upon some beauty, the usual dose of I'll teach you a lesson and the usual dose of impotency (oh, wait, the protagonist of IRAS is just too retarded to use it).

This story is, leaving racism, tons of women and freaking coincidences, quite alright. Which, after erasing all of these, is actually only left with one... more>> or two chapters worth reading among the sea of blatant excuses to make some kind of plot. The protagonist, which is reincarnated from a cultivating world to the modern one, is from the start caught into some sh*t by his own will. You see, he knows he is weak, that he has to do something to become stronger, yet, he decides that if a woman says pretty please, he might as well kill considering his position. Now that he has enemies, instead of, you known, laying low and waiting for the heat to weaken, he shortly after gets in even deeper sh*t. At most, during all these coincidences where by some luck a woman appears in front of him, with huge knockers, plump ass, perky white rabbits, godly face and sh*t like this (I'm taking most of these titles from the novel) the protagonist has cultivated for a maximum of 10 days. When he faces enemies he will always complain he is not strong enough, but I think the author even forgot that he gave the protagonist the skills to create talismans that could be used to attack.

Going in another direction, we have quite a few arcs (chapters where the protagonist has to deal with some sh*t because you know, he's so cool and strong) where the author is giving our protagonist a patriotic heart. The enemies, which of course are either Japanese or Korean, attack indiscriminately the good citizens of China, and a flame of patriotism flares in our protagonist's heart while he is also scolding the present generation for not hating the globalization, and accepting to buy things from either these two countries (J and K). He is also making a commentary about how they forgot about the war and only those old people that have seen the horrors know how much they should hate J and K (the same old people that go abroad on holidays in Europe and are mostly considered the rudest people possible). Most of us here know how f**ked up is the regime in China, so we will skip the useless explication of the retarded reasoning. Anyway, yes, the protagonist which is from another world and has come into the country where the police is working together with the mafia, considers that he has a duty to protect the integrity of the country. Well, let's say it straight - f**k IT. Anyway, the main girl, which is the most perfect, also has the same views (you know, if the woman is not racist, we can be certain she is not going to be accepted by our communist protagonist). At some chapter she says how much she is detesting the northern American company named Starbucks, especially their cake which she considers to be extremely bad. She only enters the premise being forced by a situation. You can imagine the hatred and pain of entering an northern American enterprise, how they are forced to pay money for the coffee or for a snack, where they have to sit at a table and drink/eat what they ordered.

At some point you wake up and realize just how f**king retarded is this story. There is no plot, there is just a bunch of coincidences, racism and women that are mixed together to give some sort of logic to the story. I'd gladly give 1/5 stars. <<less

This novel started well, main character had a good temperament, self-centered, focused, confident, uninterested in vanities and vain people, unwilling in involving himself with people who look down on him or wants to use him, even if they are beauties. The story was progressing well, but suddenly the MC agrees to be used by a girl, which would harm his reputation even further, knowing this girl looks down on him and is using him without remorse, and complies with every order or whim from this girl, just because. The author... more>> simply threw the plot and the main character's personality, priorities and respect down the sink. This made me regret wasting my time reading this novel. Why bother build mc's personality for over 20 chapters just to scrap it? I couldn't accept it and dropped the novel. If you like it when the author contradicts himself, or if you love inconsistencies for the sake of plot, this novel is for you. <<less

I've read the 5 first chapters, and it's quite promising! In this story, a cultivator was reincarnated into the body of someone from Earth. What I like is that he's worried about his master (a girl 3 ears older than him who loves him). He think she might've reincarnated in this world too.

Now about his circumstances :

Spoiler

The one he reincarnated into is someone from a big influential family. But because he was diagnosed as impotent, his family rejected him by saying he's not blood-related to them. So they throw him out once his father dies.


He has a little brother and sister who stayed in his family, but he's not in relation with them now. But his little brother is a good guy, he sent him 20k dollars lol

[collapse]

MC now tries to cultivate again on Earth, but the chi is very low, so just reaching the first stage would take him all his life. So for now he tries to make money to buy expensive herbs to advance his cultivation. <<less

A nice to read novel.

As of now there is only 5 chapters, which isn't much, but I can say that it's looking good for now.

For people who like an MC with a calm head, this can be what you are looking for.

Just give it a try and see for yourself if it suits your taste or not. The chapters aren't too long for a quick read.

I hope it can get releases faster at the beginning, since that will show if it has potential or now.

The Desert arc disgust me

I have no idea what the hell the author think if you don't want a romance or any thing then don't even write it.

To hell the 2 girls went to a deadly desert just for the MC and when they finally meet it was like "Hey its you two, ok good bye" so annoying I was like GIVE ME BACK MY EXPECTATION, I thought this novel was different to the other novel this author written HELL NO! they are all the same Tragic MC with ZERO to EMPTY ROMANCE!

[collapse]

I am disgusted how the author use girls here to justify MC greatness they are like tools or decoration. I wonder if the author feel that is good for girls to just expect something to a man and by the end they are left behind and crush there expectation

What I hate on this novel is how the author make you think that MC and the girls has connection, you are in a false expectation that something will happen after the girls separated then search for MC and they meet again. And when they do MC was totally indifferent about them.. author why not let MC say to this poor girl.. who you?

There is no plot just your boring story where MC wanna get strong

and when you think there is ROMANCE on this novel TRUST ME there is NONE ZERO NOTHING EMPTY NADA...

So when you read MC meeting girls blah blah blah the ending is clear the girls are just decoration to waste chapters a huge empty and useless fillers of girls struggle to look for the MC and the MC was like WHO YOU? to them.

If you are a man who love to give empty promises or expectation towards a woman then this novel is for you...

BTW Author is amazing all his novel I already drop after reading hundreds chapters since its a boring never ending loop of

MC-->Want to get stronger-->Meet girls-->leave Girls--->Girls search MC-->girl find MC -->MC want to get stronger-->leave girls--->Girls search MC--->girl find mc-->meet girls... and so on... yup this basically sum the story and I was LIKE the GIRL has no reason or meaning on this novel but just a decoration to waste chapter... <<less

Strongest Abandoned Son is a novel about Ye Mo, a cultuvator specialised in pills and charms.

Ye Mo wishes to cultivates in this new world in peace, but for this he needs money to buy herbs and the daily necessities. As such he goes around selling charms, curing diseases in exchange of money.

He isn't shameless to the point of doing anything for money, but some think him as a fraud leading to some misunderstandings. Some think that he is a magical/mystical doctor whose identity is a secret and whose power... more>> is unfathomable.

All in all, this story is about a quiet cultivator, willing to live a quiet new life in the modern world (which is less dangerous than his last world) and some misunderstandings about his identity.

I was hopeful at the beginning. The protagonist's somewhat distant, cultivation-oriented mindset, along with the quiet passage of time, made look forward to an older, more combative version of the MC from Post-’80s Cultivation Journal or My Daoist Life.

But it turns into dozens of chapters about generic beauties being interested in the MC, with unbelievable interactions bringing them together. The occasional combat features the MC easily beating up or killing non-cultivators, to the amazement of spectating women. It's more like a cartoon filled with ridiculous situations than a somewhat believable... more>> sitcom.

This is a hard story for me to review.

So far I've enjoyed the read. The overall plot and story progression feels natural.

70% of this story is really well written.

The other 30% is kind of odd. Hiccups within a good story. These varied hiccups are kind of hard to describe, and ruins the flow of the story.

It all seems to stem from an unplanned story line: Things like weak explanations/details/scene/transition changes stand out when 70% of them are well written.

Example: ... more>>
Spoiler

-MC decides to go back to his house when he knows people are looking for him... (Couldn't the handshake guy from the party who had the same scent as special ops team find him and let him know about his injured wife?)

- Or the poor reactions of the special ops group at a trained snake...

- He went to this crime town on the border, seemed like a really good setting, but accomplished nothing besides showing off and killing people... Felt more like an abandoned arc... Still like it though.

[collapse]

Having written this, I can't say that the characters stand out, nor the action, nor the cultivation. So this plus the hiccups means that the writing is not particularly solid.

Even though I'm giving it 3 stars, In my mind its closer to 3.7 as of right now. Reading Athlon's review, I suspect that this might lower in the future. <<less

Above average story. About a cultivator who transmigrated into the body of a guy with poor reputation. Although the story started out with some humour (see the 'summary' above), it soon dissipated down and we basically have a calm and reticent MC. Because of his personality, he prefers for interactions to get to the point quickly, which is a refreshing change from the oft-used "I your father / No I'm your grandfather" type dialogues. The MC takes one look, immediately deduces the situation and would either move away to distance... more>> himself or quietly take the insult and pay it back in a subtle manner.

The MC quickly found himself surrounded by a cast of beautiful women, each with her own set of circumstances; though they are left in the dark as to his motives and identity. The women who are used to unwanted attention are of course intrigued by this MC who is seemingly immune to their charms. Though they react in a predictable manner, the writing is good enough to make them stand out. One particular scene was quite poignant, like from a drama.

But I wonder at the number of women introduced early on which may or may not have any future interactions later on in the story. It's like the author wanted these beauties to be quickly enamored with the MC, but later changed his mind and only make them plot-centric (thus far). So we have the usual suspects of jealous rivals, rich heirs and haughty people trying to get in his way.

In any event, the story is about the MC trying to cultivate and regain his strength in this ordinary world. Unlike other novels, he does have a hard time getting money and was scrapping by living day to day; though the various sub-plots meant he would make rich and influential people become indebted to him.

Interesting, would read more. <<less

Edit: Please note that I have updated this review. My first review was written after reading about 550 chapters and the 2nd review was written after I had completed the entire series. To allow comparison, I shall leave my first review intact.
... more>>
Spoiler

--- First Review [up to c550] ---

I just had to say a word in fairness because of the spate of bad reviews. It is really not a terribad story. I am around 1/4 through the story. The translation is up to around 250. I read the raws til about 550. And the fact that I even bothered to read the raws would, at least to me, meant that the story is sufficiently compelling enough for me to continue.

Let's talk about the pros of the story. The transported genre is nothing new but the idea of an ancient cultivator transporting to the modern world is kind of fresh. Usually it is the other way round. On top of that he was also no one special before he got transported. The only reason why he is strong is because he knows the proper immortal training method unlike those in the modern world. Thats about it.

I also of kind the fact that the MC is one who is sort of strong, dont give a sh*t, and of the harem genre. (I guess it should be a harem genre). Whether it is the monogamy kind of relationship or the harem type, I don't have special aversion to any. I just find it odd that many readers have a natural tendency to dislike such an MC, I am not sure why. I mean, if someone is really as kick ass as the MC, I am sure he would get alot of female attention.

Cons of the story. There is probably some spoiler here so read at your own risk.

1) Enemies are kind of retarded. Really. Every single antagonist male out there is a horny idiot who thinks with their d*ck. They will always get into the trouble because of trying to sleep or rape or force or kidnap MC's female sister, friend, lover, gf, etc. You get the point. And there are always retards out there. MC is already an overbearing piece of sh*t who goes around killing everyone and in the modern day and age, you still have idiots who try and piss him off in the most retarded way.

So basically every guy who isnt a cultivator goes like this. Is interested in some female close to the MC. Tries to touch said female. Or is cocky to MC. Got wrecked by MC. Stupidly calls backup. Threatens to kill MC and his family and friends. Gets the entire clan wiped out. And this repeats itself.

The 2nd type of antagonist are the stupid f**ks who are greedy and keep underestimating the MC. I am not sure why would anyone want to bet their lives against such a stupid thing of pissing him off. I really hope the enemies get less one dimensional and grow some brains. I mean... I dont need them to be smart, I just need them to have some common sense.

2) The MC is kind of stupidly arrogant. He keeps thinking the world is based on whoever's fist is the biggest. He goes around wiping everyone but every once in a while he will get his loved ones into trouble in which he will sort of happily resolve in the end. Kind of like plot armour. Not only the enemy underestimate him, he underestimates the enemies as well and keeps getting into situations he almost died.

That is my two biggest gripe about the story so far. All in all, no surprises. Not much plot twist. A very typical kind of... I am strong so I go around destroying you if I dont like you. Throw in pretty girls and harem. It is not a terrible read really but not an outstanding one.

--- 2nd Review [Completed] ---

The funny thing is after all my complaints about the story, all the issues described above were minimized or heavily reduced after that. The MC realizes that you do not simply go around killing everyone because you would inevitably get your loved ones in trouble. He also (after a while) realizes that you do not simply go around killing everyone. In that sense, there is a limited sort of progression.

Also after he reaches cultivation realm, the "every male is a horny ass" problem seems to be magically solved. Probably because his wives were not with him at that time. Probably also because female cultivators are generally all pretty good looking so the disparity isnt that great so we dont get the braindead idiots from the first 500 or so chapters.

After a while, the story becomes kind of a typical Xianxia story although the first 1/4 of the story doesnt seem like it. Like every Xianxia story, he will go through powerups via either some godly treasure in the form of some skills or some items or maybe himself.

There is Romance, and Harem. Even though it is a Harem, the MC truly loves and likes those females. Actually in fact, he missed and passed up on other good girls who liked him because he wanted to stay faithful but for one reason or another found himself with additional wives due to some, I would say, exceptional circumstances.

The ending of the story seemed rushed. But in all honesty, most of the novels had kind of crap endings. The author tried to plug gaps every now and then. All in all, it is kind of an interesting read.

Great modern series. A few reviews complain about a certain part of the plot where the MC has to deal with an annoying girl, but these reviewers stopped before that part of the story is resolved. DON'T! The MC is vindicated so much and it is awesome!

This series is labelled harem and while I would argue that it's not harem yet, the setup and intent is obvious. With that said, this series is easily one of the best (at least so far, things can still degrade in the future). The... more>> story never really lingers on a certain arc/point, and the MC meets a variety of people (girls), but it isn't bad. There aren't any major arcs that I see so far, nor are there any particularly epic (or even exciting) battles, so don't expect anything heaven-shattering. With that said, what this series does do well is a sort of casual slice-of-life story about a cultivator reincarnated into the modern world. <<less

The story line is quite different with another xiaxia story I read. It happened in the modern time.

In term of the harem, I don't like it because there are lots of woman around MC which try to flirt with him. I prefer a monogamy. But still the story still in progress, so I still try to read it and bear until I'm sure that this story is as it tagged as polygamy. And if it is, I'll drop.

I cannot review on the language because I'm not good on that.... more>> But the story is easy and fun to read. <<less

The is the reverse of the usual "main character gets reincarnated in another world and is smarter than everyone else"

Our hero awakens in the body of a modern day person and uses his knowledge to save people and beat villains.

The translation is fairly easy to read for anyone that has trouble following most Chinese novels (like I do), as it lacks a lot of the "Xianxia" terminology.

Verdict at c124 - If you like reading macho stories with many girls pining after MC, this a novel for you. Don't let the "modern setting" fool you. It plays out like nearly every other WN - destitute reborn MC with supernatural powers. And by c100 it slowly starts to get into the "sects and factions" domain too.

When people used to say Chinese WNs stress on "wish fulfillment", I never understood that. This novel opened my eyes as to what those people meant. This novel has endless parade of... more>> girls, left right and center. There is only one "guy" friend that too hasn't been seen in a long time. Other male characters can be defined as irrelevant.

There are so many xianxia cliches shoved in even though the story is supposed to be set in "modern" world. Side characters are there just to spout exposition.

My recommendation - If you are fan of stories like IRAS, etc which are very high on wish fulfillment, this is the novel for you. If not, skip it. <<less

Started off very interesting but then it becomes so overly racist that I can't stand it. Maybe the author is really nationalistic or something but the story is so racist to non-Chinese people that I feel like I'm reading some wartime propaganda.

There is a love-hate relationship with the women in this novel. While they serve to create problems for the MC, they also serve to give the MC information and thus, progress the story bit-by-bit. At this point there are at least 5 women in the story and most young men in the story, except the Mc's brother, are portrayed as violent and s*xually driven machines fuelled by the money from their 'all-powerful' families.

This story has too much of the complicated fighting and scheming that comes with the modern world. In... more>> this novel, everything seems to link up together and affects each other like kicking this arrogant young master to save a young drugged lady about to get r*ped leads to fighting against that guy's family. However, the repetition in all these young masters trying to f*ck all those beautiful ladies and having the MC get another women indebted to him because he just had to stumble onto the scene and see it happening is straining what little enthusiasm I have for the future of the MC. Progress is pretty slow in his cultivation and trouble is always happening to the MC because of his own actions and the actions of the ladies trying to thank him back. Despite his abstinence from women and so far he has done anything with the women, his continued desire to involve himself with women gives me the speculation that his suppressing some serious hormones <<less

This novel is great and it is in modern day. The setting is great but somehow it lacks something because it's in modern day, things like people should not always disobey law and police should be atleast useful and this should have more modern characters that is useful today when handling cases. The MC is good and is someone who does not favor someone if that person is not worthy of his respect. He is calm, quiet and cold even to some women which is very good not like other... more>> arrogant MC that is only thinking about their d*ck but there was no big character development to him until the last couple of chapters because he is the same as usual other than gaining knowledge about Earth and how community works. The same goes for other characters (harem, female members) where some personalities do not change entirely but we are in the early state of the novel so I expect for them to change. I really don't know about the people who are writing bad reviews about this when

you have just read 3-30 chapters. I think you are just looking for people to like your own review, just continue reading cause though it does not keep getting better cause there are some annoying times, you will not hate but you will love it more and more.

Spoiler

About the misunderstanding with some female harem members, it was already solved and some of them regretted it and this is the reason why I love to read it more. About the MC used as a shield, I was also angry at her but she understood him at later chapters and regretted it and now she is looking for him which is a good change for her.

[collapse]

By the way, I rate it 4.0 because the lacking of action and MC character development but I still wait every night for this Novel to update.

Have a good read and good day <<less
