This is a good novel, but a bad translation. The first 80 or so chapters had already been translated at Radiant and in much better quality. If I hadn't already read those, I wouldn't know, but it's obvious by reading the chapters here at webnovel that a lot of meaning and nuance has been lost in translation. An obvious case of this is in the names, which are clearly themed around Greek mythology but have been mangled by webnovel's translation in numerous cases.
This is one of the great novel i have seen so far, even better than most in my library. Our MC is so strong, not super OP, the style of this author won't allow him to be too strong. Remember, only few of main characters are idots, even most of young master of random great clan has brains. For the romance, i hope you don't annoy the progress since you gonna feel like flip the table and yell out 'f**k' It's very long too, it has around 2700+ chaps. Good luck
This is the definition of bad writing!! it would be really challenging to find a worse writer .. 1. The plot is full of contradictions. 2.The fights sequences are very confusing and hard to imagine because the description is SH*T. 3. The story keeps focusing on irrelevant details but when something important comes up it's only mentioned in half a sentence that is very ambiguous and open to interpretation, not in a mysterious way but in a *i don't know where the story is going so let's leave it open* way. 4. So many illogical things to even count. For this novel to have 4/5 stars is beyond unreasonable, are you ppl fuking high!!! This is not just a bad novel, it made me passionately hate the writer!! it's not even about taste ... this is just SH*T!
Leaving it at a 4/5 for now, but I have insanely high hopes for this novel, a lot of people in the discord seem to like it, and recommend it, so I'm hoping that what they say is right (they have good taste ;)) I hope that the translator do the book justice, and more importantly, hope the author has no agenda that they want to follow. Here's to hoping that what I've heard so far is right!
Ignoring the derogatory remarks that the author randomly throws at women for no reason, this novel deserves a rating of 1 purely for the fact that, in spite of this being a sci fi novel in a very futuristic setting, this author has no f'in clue what the fork a galaxy is. Yes, you read that right. This author doesn't know what a galaxy is. As for the rest: - Translation is full of mistaken identities(wrong names in places) - Everything in this novel is vague af, no details about anything relevant whatsoever - No world building whatsoever. Don't even know what year this novel takes place in. - Passing of time is dumb af. Sometimes between 2 sentences weeks pass without an indication of it whatsoever. - Author has successfully insulted just about every demographic other than "Asian". As the author nicely put it - "Asia is the birthplace of human civilization." - lul k, among other derogatory statements. - PLAGIARISM - this author literally took Eminem's "Not Afraid" and some other songs and presented them as works of his characters. - An insane number of contradictory statements made by the author. Won't go into details, but just know that anything said in regards to "world building" and "story development", other than random insults to women made by the author, are fiction open to be changed in the next sentence, paragraph or chapter at the authors whim. - The entire virtual game industry in this novel makes no f'in sense. + Lots of characters actually have their own personalities. The arrogant young masters are extremely minor in this novel. All in all this novel is the biggest garbage I've ever read, and I've read up to chapter 157 - not going further, I regret everything. Don't waste your ss on this trash.
First of all, this author seems to have a problem with women and everyone who isn't "asian" (probably means chinese). There's plenty derogatory remarks about women and ample statements how asia, asians or asian culture is the best and everyone else falls behind. To some degree that's not exactly unusual for CNs but it's a bit too prevalent in this novel for my taste. The Translation is decent. There are no glaring grammar or spelling mistakes. But there's also no regard for sentence structure or "reading flow". So while you won't have problems understanding the story, it is also not an enjoyable read. The story is just bad though. Character design is about the only positive point I can find. Other character (than the MC) actually have their own personalities. They're not mindless puppets or empty dolls like you'll find in some other CNs. There's no "arrogant young master #123" and the characters aren't just stereotypes. But the world building and story progression is beyond bad. The story is nothing but a "look how awesome I am" show for the MC and the world building makes no f*ing sense. Not to mention there are tons of plotholes. For example: The MC chooses a humanoid Mecha in the virtual game world and everyone makes fun of him because of it, since the humanoid mecha has no armor. But then the MC goes on to oneshot everyone of his opponents anyway. So what exactly was the purpose of armor in the first place, if it doesn't protect against hits? And why would NO ONE ELSE get the idea "maybe dodging could work"?
Seriously. I was really enjoying this novel at first. But when you see the sane thing over and over and over again. It gets a bit boring. The plot progression is sooo slow even a snail moves faster than it. Author spends time mostly on irrelevanf stuff and stuff that actually matters gets skipped over. Am in chapter 200 and i havent seen any plot progression from chapter 50, it just reading d same **** over and over again. MC fights in virtual reality, MC wins, MC solves some science ****, he is a genius we get it, can we move on to the actual plot now, u said something about rebuilding an empire and nothing in the plot that has happened so far has even mentioned that instead they focus on irrelevant stuff like background characters we dont give two **** about. Seriously, start writing something that actually contributes to the plot and not something repetitive and boring
