Taibai And A Qin
to put it bluntly. it's absolute trash. don't be deceived by name and synopsis. it's just another Chinese novel with lots of young masters and face slaps. author says mc is 30, but mc acts like a 16 year old teenager. As far as the character development. what characters? apart from typical mc everyone is just the default typical young masters. almost all characters and sometimes even the names are the same. author deliberately tries to weaken mc every time. you can find this in almost every Chinese novels and most of them do a great job if they are all same. idk why this has so many 5 star reviews but many novels are doing better job even with same young masters face slaps. long novel short - mc has treasuure trove of knowledge left by his father. - mc didn't have strong allies but ridiculously strong enemies. - expect a young master face slaping almost every chapter and for no reason - mc has plot armour and power of will. - the end
I didn't like the female protagonist seriously if you don't like her at first you can know that she is like that as far as i read (i was in chapter 33) and after reading until chapter 33 i got tired of her bad attitude but you know that this is just my opinion, so read and draw your own conclusions *the guy confesses to the woman so she goes and gives a test, seriously she gave a test to see if he could stay with her these and other attitudes made it seem that the focus of the story the "romance" became for me a total loss of time
God this novel is bad first the constant changing pronouns he/him to she/her make it hard to tell who they are talking about this alone i could handle but the way the MC never kills anyone before they can return and cause more trouble is infuriating. It really is just your typical Chinese face slapping novel.
This gotta be one of the worst Mc ever in the history of novels. The dude got 0 points in intelligence. He gets upset at every little thing and will jump into any trap and then be like oh why are you doing this? The whole story is about him simping over this chick he just met. The cultivation ranks were super confusing at one point. Still don't get why he didn't kill some of the people. Like his GF uncle who is an evil person but he kept letting him go after saying you're dead over and over.
I had high hopes for this novel, but as I kept reading (until chapter 230) I got more and more frustrated with the constant face slapping, young masters who are more arrogant and entitled than the Son of Heaven, and rampant two-faced corrupt characters at every turn. The MC is supposedly 30 years old, but behaves like a teenager, and there's a ton of unnecessary drama, which have no meaning to the plot. In time I just got fed up with the constant corruption at every level, and then having the MC pull a deus ex machina to get out of trouble by involving his girlfriend. This story is like fast food - feels okay to read a couple of chapters, but after that you quickly get tired of the rehashed and repetitive corrupt, entitled, arrogant, and ego-centric characters who are more shallow than a piece of paper. And don't get me started on how everything is solved with violence at every turn in a modern developed society. One thing I learned when reading this joke, is that corruption is rampant in China and everything is solved by oppressing the weak. In short, trash story with no character development, 2d cardboard copy characters, repetitive non-sensical plot. 2.4/5
I find the translations to be directly translated, some sentences do not make sense. Also I think the translation is a bit rushed, which I do not mind because I would like get to the conclusion or end of the book/story. The release of the chapters is also a bit slow, I'm not sure if there are 2 chapters per day or per week being released?
I can sum this entire novel up in a single sentence: “Thank you, Mario, but our princess is in another castle!” I would not recommend this to anyone who dislikes cockroach villains or single love interests with long separations from the MC. Around the third time the MC goes to fetch his one true love only to find out that she’s been kidnapped and brought somewhere the MC won’t be able to reach without getting much, much stronger, the appeal of the whole novel died for me.
