In a world of cruelty where one cultivates using Gu - magical creatures of the world - Fang Yuan must rise up above all with his own power.
Reverend Insanity is a great novel. I will say that is is divided into books which are still not fully translated. Currently there are about 1550 chapters translated in english (there is a google translate version of all of the chapters but its pure comedy as you may imagine). Book 1 - 1-200, Book 2 - 201-405, Book 3 - 406-600, Book 4 - 601-1025, Book 5 - 1026-1950, Book 6 - 1952+. I also want to clarify that the novel is still coming out. Now to start with the novel itself. The protagonis - Fang Yuan has lived on earth until around 15 when he is transpoted into the cultivation world. He than spends 500 years roaming this enroums and cruel world of fierce competition. Eveyone and everything struggles for survival. After getting a certain gu worm he travels back in time to the point when he was still around 15 in the cultivation world - this is where the novel starts. Fang Yuan has knowladge of the future and determination to achieve the ultimate goal - immortality. Now this is where it gets interesing - he is actually an evil mc. This is something that really grabbed my attention. And he is not evil simply for the sake of it. The MC doesn`t go out of his way to trouble others. But if interests are involved he will not stop before anything and anyone. The novel goes quite deep in his view of the cultivation world as well as the world itself. This is the next point that amazed me. The world building in this novel is next level. Everything that happends has a great reason to happen. Everything is logical. You can predict certain things and you can speculate about many, many things in the world. The power system is outstanding. You have 9 ranks and there are gu worms which have special abilities and they also have ranks. You have to collect, nurture, refine and use gu, and each step has countless aspects meaning that the more wise you are the better chances you have. This brings me to the next point - everyone who is successful in this world has to have both the brains and the brawl in order to be successful. This in turn means that schemes and politics are extremely interesting. All in all the best novel you can read in my opinion. Yeah it`s true that no everybody is going to like it but i think it still deserves a try. See for youself and deep into the mysterious and profound world of Reverand Insanity.
This is overall a good novel. When you read it you'll feel that the author knows their stuff and has done a lot of research. The world is well explained, the rules and power levels are clearly defined and the characters are well developed. I'd say aside for the minor ones who do petty things the others have genuine interesting development. The mc is ruthless to the core and borderline psychopath. I couldn't find anything negative to say about this until we hit chapter 200. Funny thing is the last 2 novels I read started to become weird around chapters 200s as well, maybe that's when authors get tired I don't know. So anyway chapter 200 is the beginning of a nex volume and I have to say it went from a 9/10 to a 5 real quick. One of the characters has become so annying that I wanted to puke. Like why? And also mc is not so badass anymore, just seems like he is babysitting or something. I seriously wanted to drop it but I decided to just put it on hold and read something else for the time being.
