For all of these five star reviews on this book, i guess i will have to be the equalizer; i read up to chapter 46 today, and let me tell you; my day was wasted on trash, don't read this book, don't waste your time, there are so many better books on qidian, i don't even understand how this is trending, but i will list a few issues so you can have a general idea of what you're getting into with this.
1. Science and magic is portrayed as complete opposites able to completely replace the other, this boils down to the world he lives in not even having math or physics, just magic.
2. There was mention of a cultivation technique with the old mans necklace ring, which would allow him to save the world, he promptly forgets about it and doesent remember within the next 40 chapters, idk if he ever remembers. Keep in mind that those 40 chapters span a time period of about 2 years. Yup.
3. The author mentions the characters ages etc. But forgets to mention their mental age, which is important because all of them seem about 5-10 years younger mentally than they should be; especially the 16 year olds.
4. The mc tries to lay low by being dismally bad at studying and almost getting expelled if he wasnt actually a crouching tiger hidden dragon, which he is, but hes dismal at that too; as under the examination he is measured to be better than everyone else... how to be low key: 1. Become the trash on the bottom of society, 2. Become the divine leader of the leaderboard within seconds, 3. Do it all in the presence of the whole school to be sure they notice and gossip about it, 4. Piss of the strongest existence in the whole city, because u have beef with him but u still wanna lay low... wait?
The magic system is pretty pathetic aswell, though i didn't really see its potential during the 40 chapters, add onto a bunch of inconsistencies, some sexist remarks and an 'in general' scaredycat useless horndog mc what do we got?
(btw the whole draw was the idea of a badass mage owning people within his own ranks, but i lost faith pretty quickly as he is basically op by virtue of deus ex machina ,or even worse; op by old man he paid respect to being hidden expert with tons of priceless treasures to help him along. There is no reason to root for him, atleast not as far as i saw, and he definitively isn't even slightly badass.)
Apparently a trending story on qidian... what a joke.
Lets see qidian delete this review, i'm curious if they actually do.
Oh btw i rate it 1 out of 5 stars because i don't think the release rate matters when it comes to quality, in fact it might be in detriment to it. As for the writing quality, i don't only consider grammar, but overall enjoyment of the plot and characters and motivations. Cause the stuff connecting that stuff isnt air, u have to use writing to connect ****, unless you are making an encyclopedia, where its enough to put the information in alphabetical order.
