This is a damn mess. I would only call it cultivation because he uses chi as mana. That's it. Maybe he only read a little cultivation novels? That said the title isn't too far off, seeking the dao is to seek the truth, so I can understand where he was going with this book, maybe... It's a 1000 yr old person reincarnated into his 3rd life, who talk's like a try hard teenager using words like SHIZZNIT. I've never heard anyone use it outside of 13-14 yr old teenage boys playing online games. The author tries really hard to be funny, but just comes across as stupid rambling. Honestly I wonder if people listened to another book, this is a bloody mess. THAT SAID, there are a good amount of the book that is truly enjoyable and its just ruined by literally JUST the MC, the world and everything else. EVEN the cultivation style is decent, its just all twisted by the MC and his attitude. Same book written differently would be so much better!

Wasn't sure how much X rated stuff would be thrown at me, given the cover - but its a nice change from the usual crap that's similar in theme - MC has women throwing them selves at them with a token bad group to fight and give purpose to the story. Does bother me that a person, a kid really, can use a sword, and actually fight warriors with it almost immediately.

beyond terrible

It is beyond me how people can listen to this, ignoring that a good amount are doing so just for the X rated stuff. Wishful fulfillment that a 12 yr old could write better

I enjoyed the book overall, but the writing itself is shockingly bad. Conflicted because I like the idea and the world, but it’s like a novice web novel that’s written as fast as possible and not caring about making a structured story, and yet the sex scene's have more detail that ANYTHING else in the story. Book could easily be twice as long if it was re written properly .

Wish it was longer, really enjoyed the focus on living and fighting instead of being made super special and having power given to you like most of the lit rpg book do for a refreshing change of pace!

In the first 2-3 minutes the MC casually asked his date if they were going to go have sex after dinner, didn’t care that he couldn’t remember her name - who is an A typical stupid ‘babe’ - disturbed a whole restaurant 3 times by ignoring his phone/watch after being asked to be quite the first time. Then of course the authors added some big bad men for him to thrash when they tried to kick him out of the restaurant - that was owned by the main guy in said beating receiving group - although the authors made sure to make them more degrading towards the woman that he had been 👍 so that is his justification I’m guessing? Don’t think I’ll keep listening - the MC is already to my mind established as a arrogant - sarcastic - casual macho man, who can’t even be bothered to remember a woman’s name he took on a date to a $$ fine dining restaurant. Liked the narrator though 😁. If you like that kind of MC you’ll probably love it...... Will change this review in future if I can listen to more, but it’s just got the lazy devil may care tough guy MC that people seem to think having charisma is the same are being a sociopath

Took a sharp turn into stupid typical self sacrificing hero decisions in the last few hours filled with angst and tears from the MC. Really enjoyed the book up till that point, maybe the author for depression toward the end of writing this?

Like a well written erotica

A good amount of erotica mixed in with a story about a genuinely decent seeming guy - the first I’ve come across in a harem style book - as you follow along in his life. Nice change of pace from the ‘save everyone your super special and powerful’. He is just good looking and nice guy who is as lucky as only a male MC in a fantasy book can be - in relation to his love life at least. Looking forward to the next book! BE AWARE — the sex scenes, of which there are a few are long and very descriptive and don’t use substitute words as some books do. Narrator was very good at vocal inflections, though his cadence was off sometimes. Having said that either they didnt credit someone for doing the female voices OR the narrator does really convincing female voices - I would not be able to tell if it was either! 👍

The first 3/4 of the book I thought were great! Then it kind of fell apart a little at the end but was still a enjoyable book. It is annoying how often the ‘former marine’ has to be reminded constantly to reload his weapons and after months of training certain skills forget to use them right away. Will try the next book and hope the stupid military vet theme used for character progression is dropped as well as the juvenile attitude of the 25 something MC is left behind as well Narrator was excellent!

Could be better

I like it, but the writing is jilted and there’s no expression in the way people react it’s just bland monologue a lot of the time. The narrator was a bad choice, has no inflection of emotion. Is too focused on the annunciation of each word so there’s odd pauses and a bit monotone. Still enjoyed it despite that, wouldn’t listen to it a second time unless it had a decent narrator like Luke Daniels or someone else.
