This story gives me the same vibes as those old wuxia stories where there are maybe 4 or 5 sects in the entire jianghu and they each have a few hundred people each at most. There are a few things I don't like about the story:

    • Set in the "modern age" (with mobile phones) yet there are rogue cultivators everywhere. I don't care what country it is, there is absolutely no f**king way any functioning government would ever allow non-governmental organizations (e.g militias) to exist that would pose a significant threat to itself. Monopoly on violence and all that. If the government would go as far as to ban firearms, then it makes no sense to not ban cultivation methods that allow people to control f**king flying swords and zombies.
    • The world is very small. The "Wen" which is supposedly the greatest poison sect in the world is a tiny village that has 4 elders who disappeared after going into a cave expedition leaving the entire village completely vulnerable to any attack. It has been 43 chapters and I haven't seen any significant sects of scale in this story and I suspect there isn't any. Any decent modern xuanhuan story (e.g Daoist Gu) will give you a sense of an absolutely huge world with countless factions and sects, with endless numbers of magical arts and techniques, weird monsters and treasures just waiting to be discovered. This story does not give me that vibe.
    • The characters are all unrealistic simpletons. The main character is a simpleton who likes to eat carrots. He is like a dumb robot, his entire life revolves around fulfilling orders given to him by his elders. He doesn't seem to have any independent thought (at least the novel does not describe his thoughts at all). MC gets a mission, goes out, and encounters miraculous events. That's pretty much this novel in a nutshell. His sidekick is a little girl whose only ability is to regurgitate things she has read from books. The MC's elders are all simpletons who are just robots whose only purpose is to educate the MC in the art of poison. There are 2 "uncles" who are literally retarded, who somehow manage to miraculously cure the MC of a deadly poison by fooling around, and this somehow gives the MC godlike powers superior to everyone else, which reminds me very much of certain sh*tty wuxia movies that I wish I never watched. The MC and his sidekick encounter 2 comic-relief "thief monks" who must be the worst f**king thieves in the history of the world. These are "nice" thieves who will give you counterfeit goods for free, but won't harm you, who will steal things for the sake of curiosity rather than profit (it boggles my mind how the author can come up with such unrealistic characters). They meet a girl (Chang Li) who has been living in a cave (and never once left the cave) for 2000 years and yet she can communicate with them like a normal person. The author doesn't even attempt at explaining how they can still understand each other after 2000 years of language evolution.
So yeah, very much a braindead shut-your-brain-off-and-just-enjoy type of story. I don't like those, but I understand that lots of Chinese readers love these kinds of stories. As for me, I enjoy stories with actually realistic characterization and interesting plot that doesn't read like "random sh*t happens, and the MC gains new powers/companions". I will give it 4 stars because it reminds me of old wuxia stories.

The only thing this has going for it is the translation quality. The rest is pure sh*t. Characters dont make sense, MC studies poison all his life and then immediately becomes a body strength cultivator of sorts that never uses poison again. Harem is already forming. Everyone conveniently forgets, remember or acquire various skills and personality traits so that the disaster they call plot can move forwards. Nevermind the gaping logic and story holes.

Move on people, you can use your time better.

so far its been very interesting in a good way. No bullied kid, no face slapping, no overused comments about mt tai or shouts of "you're courting death!" the MC is fairly clever and is not (so far) a ruthless jerk who 's main goal is to bang anything with boobs. It's a refreshing change and I'm liking the mystery behind what happened to their grandmaster. I find that far more interesting than what we usually get from QI. Still early days yet, though, so I'm not going to rate.

this... more>> is not a novel for those of you who like instant gratification and lots of adolescent wish-fulfillment scenes in their novels. No harem so far, no tournaments, and no evil senior brothers to stomp. All pluses for people like me who enjoy a little variety now and then. <<less

The powers the MC gets is pretty atypical compared to other MCs, I haven't seen a xuanhuan/xianxia story that has the MC use poison. It's a bit of a rough start but in 20 chapters MC gets his OP (albeit really deadly to his peers and even himself) power.

I don't get why the reviews seem so negative, the chapters don't really seem that bad, at least for the moment.

I don't get why the bad reviews for this novel, other than the fact that it's on Qidian.

There hasn't been much of your typical cliche baddies, big chested harems or the "Here's the 6 realms we know of, each realm has 10 stages and each stage has beginner middle...." stuff either. The MC is OP but not too OP either.

There's a bit of mystery and a lot of comedy as well. For now ill give it a 5 stars until Qidian starts paywalling it like some other novels

It's a slow paced but interesting adventure. It's modern day but nothing so far has taken place in a modernized area. It's a bit comedic as well. I'm assuming the one star votes are because MC isn't super OP and it took several chapters to actually get to the cultivation parts.

The first few chapters are awkward, but it gets smoother.

The story's quite average, and it has its flaws. Some loose logic and messy organization of details hinder the story. The story, however, still feels like a story unlike some lamer novels.

Poison cultivation becomes more like a special qi cheat, since the author gave the MC a unique cultivation? Path. Also, the modern aspect of the story is quite minimal. Cell phones, guns, and Prada are among the most memorable modern things in the story.

Chapters are decently long. Small, but noticeable,... more>> translation errors. <<less
