The novel is good, but the translation is absolute garbage. Expect to be confused most of the time because the character names change every other chapter. The translator doesn't care about the sh*t quality and you'll find yourself reading same paragraphs repeated twice or thrice as if the translator just copy pasted them and forgot he already pasted them already. There are a lot of grammatical errors, misspellings, entire scenes missing, and character names being switched. A machine translated version of this is so much better. In fact, it's like... more>> this is the ret*rded version of an MTL. Reading this translation, is as fun as getting lobotomized. <<less

A very nice surprise as turn to be this light novel. First of all, the quality of the translation is very high and make the flow of the story very easy to follow. Now, the high level of history know how in the novel make difficult to think that this was written by a Korean an not a Frenchman. The story is very interesting and we'll writed, with a good pace. If you like history and Napoleonic history then this is a great read.

The story is fantastic. The translation quality is excellent but first couple of chapters only contains half of the original chapter. You can only read half of some of the chapters. Then you have to MTL each chapter to read the remaining part. It was horrible. The MC is a cautious man. He takes level headed approach to issues. I liked the interaction between the Bonaparte siblings.

Good start. So far I haven't seen any relevance to the "engineering" part yet. But the characters are interesting and the plot moves at a good pace. There is no OP weird stuff here and the MC doesn't steamroll through stuff with his future knowledge. For example

His father dies and now he has to support his parent at siblings. Now, there is no easy solution to this. He works hard and pursues any opportunity he can to earn money.


This was very interesting to read compared to most asian novels where they just make money and fame out of thin air. Translation quality is pretty good too. Eagerly anticipating more chapters. Will easily rate this a 9/10

Edit: c27

There is lot of science and engineering here. Which is great! <<less

This is a good read. It's rather slow and often times a little repetitive, but it has a well founded place dropped in the middle of the French revolution. The main character isn't overpowered and actually feels like a historian with some college level mathematics background instead of a typical all knowing person able to dodge and weave through history always getting their perfect outcome.

If you enjoy historical novels and generally slower weak to strong growth pattern this is for you. If you're looking for the conquering hero takes on... more>> Europe look elsewhere to something like 'I became a genius of the French royal family' or similar titles <<less
