    Why It Should Get Picked Up:

    This novel is incredible, but you don't need to believe me. Here's a review, made by keklel, with words much better than i could ever do.

    "It is not too late to think about it, after we become stronger." - Jin So Chung



    A true masterpiece.


    The start of the story is similar to Possessing Nothing, but I think I prefer this one. Firstly, much more stuff happens in each chapter (plot moves very quickly), and secondly, the MC makes mistakes and is punished severely for them, learning not to be rash in the process. I really like that theme. The MC feels much much more realistic and is self-reflective.


    I thought that this particular part from chapter 10, combined with the rest of that chapter, was just a stroke of pure genius:


    "All I really did was kill five or six of the village's rogues and no one knew I was the one that did it because there were no witnesses.


    In addition, if the deal with the chief is announced outside, the fact that he is rich will be revealed to the public. The countless vagabonds of Murim will come in search of the chief continuously and ask if he has more silver deposits. So, he will not chase me nor will he report it to the government office. However, I cannot feel relieved yet, since he can hire a high-class martial artist and hunt me down.


    But this is also a possibility. Most of the outstanding First-class martial artists with high self-esteem are so proud of themselves that they will never accept a request for monetary gains even if he asks for it. It may cost as much as the silver bullion I took, just to hire a master who is beyond my level of skills. In other words, there is no need to be afraid of the aftermath from the village chief right now."


    Here, the MC, after just having robbed the village chief, convinces himself that he has nothing to worry about. IN THAT VERY SAME CHAPTER he gets killed by experts who got hired by the village chief to come after his head (his 2nd death). I personally think that was a stroke of pure genius and I've not seen anything like this in any other webnovel other than Daoist Gu (which is another masterpiece btw, definitely check it out).


    As for the translation. It isn't great, but sometimes the original words are there in parentheses if you want to see it.


    Here's what I like about this novel:


      • MC is cool-headed and realistic thinking. When the son of the village head, who has bullied him for years, tells him to clean cow dung, he does it without any complaints (even though he hates doing it). Later on, when 2 bandits show up and rob him, he doesn't try to fight back but gives them all his money and luggage and just walks away, even though it means he has to starve for the rest of his journey, because he doesn't want to risk injury fighting with the bandits: "The regular bandits in Green Forest are systematically promoted to martial arts, so they may be stronger than me from the previous life. I do not know what it would be like if I fought with my life on the line, but it is better to obey their words. Now, I am so disadvantaged because I have no weapons. If I had at least a knife, I would not endure such a humiliating choice."
      • No wasted words (e.g training scenes, cultivation scenes etc). MC says he has to spend 2 months to melt his internal energy, so the author spends all of 3 sentences describing the last scene where he's melting his internal energy. I really like this. If only the author of novels such as Immortal Executioner could learn a thing or two from this author! A year's worth of training is described in a single sentence: "One year passed by quickly.". That's right, when nothing interesting is happening, the author just skips it. Why can't all webnovels be like this?
      • The MC is not so lucky in his 2nd life that he can afford to act rashly and not be killed. In fact, he does get killed in his 2nd life, precisely because he acted rashly and robbed the village chief, even justifying to himself later on that he would be safe (see quote above) . Luckily, he still had the book with him. To me, this shows that a fool is still a fool even if he has lived for 60 years, only the experience of life and death can bring true wisdom. This event immediately brings this novel to 5 stars in my opinion, because it shows the MC is not perfect and still makes serious mistakes even in his 2nd life. Just because he has lived a past life doesn't make him omniscient, there are lots of very important things that he doesn't know, that could and did kill him again.

    The last translation was 2 years.

    Description:

    Should an untalented guy like me die?

    Then I’m going to die.

    I will die as you so desire.

    After dying, I will challenge the world again.

    Until I kill this tr*sh-like world!

    This seems pretty interesting. I didn't read a Korean novel before. So I'll definitely try this one.:blob_plusone:
