Above And Beyond All

Above And Beyond All
Overlooked and underrated novels that are really unique in terms of either characters, world, story or even several at once and don't have glaring faults.

Lots of novels are interesting at first but are destroyed by either insufferable characters or a terrible story. Not these. And if you know others like them, PLEASE let me know!

Bad stories and characters are everywhere, good stories and characters are rare, but truly UNIQUE stories or characters are unforgettable and THAT is what I'm looking for after reading hundreds of titles.

People often complain that many novels' characters are flat and fixed. Well, here they are not just really well written, but grow and change over time.

No reincarnations into tr*shy young masters, no sect branches that have bigger branches behind them with sects behind them with bigger sects behind them, no fighting 10 ranks higher enemies because MC is so special, no repeating the same nonsense again and again for thousands of chapters, no all-knowing MC on a rail to the next key-item, no arranged marriages and no idiots to be killed by MC for a back and forth of revenge with family->sect->kingdom->world againd and again.

Out of popular titles, these won't make the list because of previously mentioned issues: ATG, LMS, ISSTH, ED, TSCOG, AWE, TOCF, KOTB, IATM, TTNH, ROTECM, TLS, OEM, HSSB, BTTH, DD, RE, CD, KOG, ST, SR, ZTJ, ISS, PMG, TLK, TNC. Others aren't mentioned because they either don't deserve to, or are new.

It takes a few dozen chapter until this aspect begins to really shine and it only gets better as you keep reading, but nothing compares to the level and depth of character realism here. Protagonist's decisions can't be anticipated because they're beyond the scope of my imagination, which almost never happens after reading so many chinese novels. Unbelievably refreshing.... more>>

Unforgettable. Nights on the roof, listening to the news of the world, watering the fields. Usually slow intros are dull and boring. Not this one. This one will stay with me for a long time.... more>>
