Trash of the Count’s Family

When I opened my eyes, I was inside a novel.

[The Birth of a Hero].

[The Birth of a Hero] was a novel focused on the adventures of the main character, Choi Han, a high school boy who was transported to a different dimension from Earth, along with the birth of the numerous heroes of the continent.

I became a part of that novel as the trash of the Count’s family, the family that oversaw the territory where the first village that Choi Han visits is located.

The problem is that Choi Han becomes twisted after that village, and everyone in it, are destroyed by assassins.

The bigger problem is the fact that this stupid trash who I’ve become doesn’t know about what happened in the village and messes with Choi Han, only to get beaten to a pulp.

“…This is going to be a problem.”

I feel like something serious has happened to me.

But it was worth trying to make this my new life.

Honestly, the plot isn't that original -- individual transmigrates into a book that he has started reading but not finished (as that would give away too much information and make things less interesting) and has to live life as one of the would-be cannon fodders of the book. However, this novel does stand apart from others and doesn't have that "this seems like the same novel just with different names" feeling.

I think what really makes this novel enjoyable is the MC's personality, and the fact that he does not get... more>> unreasonable cheats (well he does but... I'll get into that later). Most MC's in this situation have this sort of "don't bother me and I won't bother you... but if you do bother me I'm gonna get immediate revenge now and then mega revenge later" personality. While I do occasionally like them (which why I read them), they do get boring after reading so many. This MC, however, has a "I just want to relax" personality and also gets that he cannot simply relax without doing anything to get himself into a position that allows that. So: laid-back, I-don't-care and don't-want-trouble personality, yet still has goals so that way the novel can actually progress without it seeming out of character for him. He can also seem unapproachable to other characters without trying unlike other MCs. His personality is like a hard-to-approach king or general in other novels. In my opinion, it's a really enjoyable change to the cookie-cutter personalities that MCs tend to have.

Also! About his "unreasonably strong" cheats. Usually in novels like this, the MC gets random cheats (like having super great martial art knowledge from their previous life or a special item) that the body they transferred into never had. They then kick butt that way. This MC, however, uses only his knowledge from the book and his own ability to adapt to any changes to survive. It seems more... realistic. (Yes, I do get that these are usually fantasy worlds where anything can happen. It still seems stupid to me when it does.) Though he does get some cheat strengths, really it's just strong creatures having a habit to like being around him. Really, this is the most cheat-like ability he has. After all, normally not every strong creature tends to like someone. However, even then the author does give reasons for them doing so...

Overall, 5/5 I love this novel. <<less

It doesn't do anything too new or revolutionary, but somehow comes across as a bit unique. The MC keeps making excuses for his behavior, but in the end it seems like he doesn't know who he really is.

His view of himself becomes more rationalized and deluded as time goes on; yet, interestingly enough: everyone around him seems to understand at least one facet of his personality better than he does himself. His enemies remain confused... how do you understand the motives of someone who doesn't understand himself?

In the end, we're... more>> all confused and a show of confidence is just that: a show. Kim Rok Soo is written like a real human being: flawed rationality, self delusions, unjustified confidence, and gradually building rage at the injustices visited upon 'his people'... The story may not be the most original, but if you dig deeply enough... you'll find yourself lost, only to realize you've finally opened your eyes.

So yeah: 5 stars <<less

When I first saw the title I rolled my eyes and thought ANOTHER one?! I finally decided to read anyways and I'm very glad I did. So far the MC is surprising complex and there hasn't once been a desire for hard work, restructuring his families lands or business organization, or reinventing steam engines/gunpowder/high heels/flush toilets.

there's also no big personality change from his old world to the new one; the guy is scared of death and hates pain and everything he does is to ensure his safety and protection. There's... more>> no sudden burning desire to get stronger or prove himself to his new family or to work hard. I love how laid back he is and he seems almost diabolically clever at times, though a lot of that so far is due to him having read up to book five of the series. He's manipulative and tsundere. He leaves a lot of things up to the other persons interpretation and he's not the most reliable narrator when talking about himself. i have to give koudos to this story. I usually hate stories with this much political maneuvering and end up skipping chapters due to my eyes glazing over and my attention wandering but that hasn't happened here (yet). The humor and the MC have kept me interested enough to stick with it, even through the politics. I just hope it doesn't degenerate into a romance/ harem later on. <<less

Don't be mislead by the title and associate it with any xianxia novels (Well that was my own experience at first)

Well after reading the novel I was easily hooked up with it and could say that the novel is a decent fantasy action novel. It has a good pacing of the story and the MC was quite likable too

This novel follows a common premise of transmigrating into a petty villain’s body. Frankly, I don’t like those kinds of stories much but I decided to give it a shot, and I’m glad I did.

The main character is weak, and conflict resolution is handled completely by using other people, or social methods. So far, the transition of the character going from trash to what he is becoming has been handled very nicely. Most social interactions are heartwarming so far.

I’m not sure if the interactions will continue along this route, but... more>> seeing how well the writer has handled all the things they have done so far, I am sure that whatever they do will end up being good.

All in all, I would recommend this! If you are looking for a main character who handles their problems through other people, or through words this would be a great choice! <<less

The novel was entertaining at the beginning but the tropes get rehashed so often that it became stale after a while. Dropped the novel at c120.

Too many misunderstandings and too much tsundere made things too cringey to the point of being unbearable.

I added a point because of Raon. Raon is cute but everybody else, including the MC, is meh.

This novel is so good! This is so in line with my tastes. The characters' interactions and internal monologues are so funny especially the misunderstandings. Lol. Anyways, the first 100+ chapters tackle world building and character introductions so I think that readers should try to be patient and give this novel a chance first. In the later part, (which is in 180+ chap or so) the plot development will take an exciting turn. All the characters introduced will have their own part in the overall picture. Even though this... more>> implies that the novel's atmosphere will be a shade darker and heavier, it's not. The author still retains the humorous vibe of the novel.

Well, for me, overall this is pretty enjoyable and exciting as it is especially I'm being stressed out from all the novels I've been reading with darker plots. And since, I can't help it I spoiled myself and read the raws. Lol. <<less

Super super awesome. It's my favorite for the year 2019!!! The MC is so cooollll.. he is not OP, it's not boring and funny. I love how the MC dislike "troublesome" fame and power. It's all how the MC should be. Not weak but not duper super strong either. It's so fun.. plot is check. MC is check. Characters is check. Villains is check. Villagers is check. It's not perfect but close to, so far...

Take a moment to appreciate the fact that you will be reading a novel about a transmitigator who read a novel about a transmitigator and was transported to that world, and the novel you are reading is about how he changed the story of the novel he read. Honestly it's an entertaining read.

I would rate this novel close to 3.5. I really liked the novel, it was overall a really good story with some unique plot and a really strong start. The story, the interactions, the plot, basically everything was good for the first 50-60 chapter, I would even go so far as to say that this was one of my top 10 novels but as the story progressed the author kept repeating the same interactions between characters, the same plot, basically the same formula for almost everything. I didnt really mind... more>> it before as the concepts were still fresh, but as of now it has just become a chore to read this novel. Its really boring as you already know whats going to happen.

Its a good novel overall, I recommend people to give it a shot. <<less

Hmm... pretty decent start. This is basically a fast-paced Korean protagonist rise-to-power drama in a world similiar to Japanese otome-game-like setting. The closest novels in terms of "feel" to this novel would be I Am the Monarch and maybe Tales of Demons and Gods. The protagonist already knows what will happen in the future, and takes steps to avert his fate, but unlike the protagonists of other novels, all he wants is just enough power to have a peaceful life rather than to save the world. Unfortunately, it looks like... more>> fate is not going to let him enjoy such a life. Plus, although he is quite clever, he's just dense enough not to realise how much his offhand comments and actions are changing people's attitudes towards him. <<less

I'm writing a review because I really love this novel right now. I think a lot more readers would enjoy it, especially since it actually veers into a direction that is atypical of the genre - but it's only apparent later on. I see other recent reviews have touched on this too. This novel really starts to shine once everything starts coming together.

The first part of the novel, in hindsight, was setting up: the world, the characters in this novel world that the MC read about and proceeded to pick... more>> them up and turn them to his side one by one so that they wouldn't hurt him and so that he can use them later on. This MC is very entertaining to follow and can quickly cook up schemes to use both his allies and his enemies in the best way for himself. In the end, he wants a chill life without worries. But first he's got to handle the war that's coming and ensure he still has a home after it...

And this is where the story REALLY picks up. Once the MC has gathered his pieces just in time for the war that was foretold in the novel he read (he only read up to that point), he no longer can predict everything. TCF turns from a common (but fun!) isekai where you use the knowledge you have to become OP to something amazing, filled with tactics and politics that keep you on the edge of your seat. It's so incredibly exciting to see all the previous story threads come together, to see the characters that the MC was setting up in the early chapters to play a role, to see that the author actually was building up to something instead of pointlessly meandering and everything is finally beginning to pay off. There is clear foreshadowing and build up and hinting of some plot elements to use later on that shows the author has given thought to this, and honestly I did not expect this from what looked to be another generic isekai.

Also, about the characters: although at the moment many are still quite one dimensional, there is no one particularly annoying. In this genre, I'm used to always having annoying characters in the MC's party, or harem members that only add annoyance and drama to the story, or some annoying side character that the MC refuses to get rid of. So I will drop this bomb here and say that TCF has none. Everyone does their part and works hard. Raon is the greatest and mightiest and deserves his own shoutout. As more characters are introduced, we get more entertaining character interactions.

Go give this novel a chance. <<less

Completely underrated Novel at 4.3/5.

This novel should be at 4.9/5 for how great the writer is.

I'm too lazy to write a review so I'll just steal someone's comment.

... more>>

I can't believe it, this story started out as a somewhat entertaining misunderstanding filled comedy for me and probably many others.

The author managed to turn it into something so much more than that through great planning and writing.

This story manages to have lots of comedy, interesting politics, crazy plot twists, ridiculous yet believable misunderstandings, a badass MC (In his on way), super adorable characters (Raon), great conversations, and some of the best action scenes.

On top of that, it's pretty fun trying to predict what the teasers have to do with the chapter.

Really goes to show you that you don't need a world ending plot creating false tension to make a story interesting, just a great writer (+translation team).

Well some people will not like this kind of novel because Cale likes to throw the responbility to other people and tge author like to spoil all of bookplot and make it half easy, not so hard condition for MC.

But I like it just for makes me smile or laugh. You know I tired to read serious novel...

And this novel, even didn't have manhwa, this novel have so many hidden fanart in twitter and other website. All is cute and cool fanart!

I meet this novel after Release that Witch, where I am looking for novel that invest more on characters around MC.

I am bored of the CN MC where everything is about him, I mean I dont hate that kind of novel. Coiling dragon literally where I start then martial world, true martial world, desolate era, dragon mark wargod, super gene, king of gods, peerless martial god and etc.

Same thing all over the novel. 1 weak MC, 2 got bullied, 3 train or lucky encounter, 4 win and 5 repeat.

After RTW... more>> I am looking for that kind of novel where it has different POV with side characters affect the story.

So, here I am after The Novel Extra, I am Monarch, RTW.

More like a rant than review but I write to those 1star review that read 5 to 20 chpter.

If you are currently where I am bored of linear story that talk all about MC getting bullied and revenge, you might wanna try this novel. <<less

A terrific fantasy. I highly recommend it. The writing is great and the concept is fresh.

There are a surprising number of poor reviews but I advise anyone interested to try reading at least the first 20 chapters. At the end of the day, this is a light novel; there will always be flaws if you look hard enough. But this novel does a great job and I can only assume that the people with bad reviews were simply triggered by the few specific flaws that this actually has. Except for... more>> the people who call it repetitive. They are just wrong. The MC knows the future and knows the location of treasures. Unsurprisingly, the incidents and treasures are scattered all over the place. So he has to go to various locations, figure out ways to stop bad guys and help good guys, and grab any treasures he can. Sometimes the treasures are related to the problem, sometimes not. Sometimes he converts a bad guy, sometimes he wins over a good guy, other times he sneaks through without being recognized. <<less

It was an interesting read and I'll probably still read it, however; I think there's just too many people causing it to have characters that are quite underdeveloped. It also doesn't make sense why the characters just start following him for seemingly no reason and if there is a reason it doesn't feel real enough. Surprisingly the plot is quite interesting and fleshed our in my opinion, though the pacing is a little awkward with all these random time skips. Overall it was an interesting read.

It's an undeniably fun read. Interesting plot developments and perhaps some fun misunderstandings, but really not much in character development or world building or really depth of plot.

One of the best novel I have read so far. I like the plot and how twisted Cale is but still chose to interfere even though it's annoying. Yea. I like how the story proceeds that completely make you into it. I recommend this novel a lot. One of my favorite so far.

Really love the series. The start is ROUGH. VERY VERY ROUGH! The first 10 or so chapters were some of the worst written I've ever seen. The MC changes personality, completely, sometimes several times in the same sentence. The author hadn't figured out who Cale was. He manages to figure it out and make one of the most interesting characters I've ever seen. And he stays faithful to that character's personality at all times. There isn't a single action taken in this novel that felt odd or out of place... more>> with Cale's character. Every response, every action, every thought, everything is exactly what you'd expect from Cale.

I can't recommend the novel enough! Bear with the first few chapters, they truly are terrible, but it just keeps getting better and better every chapter. <<less
