    No fights,(excepting academic mud slinging), no power trips (except when the MC at Princeton...you’ll see:D) lots of maths and physics ( :eek: )and the MC is apparently unaware that humans come in two genders (literally so, :ROFLMAO: in a oft hilarious way)

    MC gains a system like God of Cooking but in Sciences. You get a feel for the author’s love of Science and his obvious familiarity with academia.

    However, strangely enjoyable and very fun. The three idiot roommates, and his pet A.I. (nope, not joking) add a touch of humor and giggles. I stayed up late binging last night.

    Qi and mtl via comrade mao.

    Very, very good, try it, after 25 chapters you cannot put down.:p

    But it’s good. :p

    Edit: don’t cut off your nose to spite your face. Qi picks up novels by their evil, nasty claws because they’re GOOD.:mad: Like Solo Leveling...:confused::mad:

    I don't recommend this :blobpopcorn_two:

    as a student in college, this novel is everything I want to achieve but I can't :notlikeblob::notlikeblob:

    I rate it Assignment/10 :blobspearpeek::blobspearpeek:

    Is Solo Leveling a good novel ? 'cause I saw someone saying that 'if you reading based on the manhua, you shouldn't expect much...'

    I think the manhua is actually superior. The original translation was very good imho, the Qi was ok, but I loved both novel and manhua.:p

    God of Cooking perhaps? Idea is quite similar...Solo Leveling assigns missions and rewards...:coffee: but SL is very violent.:blobhero:

    Yes! Though he’s more evil...:aww::aww::aww:

    Edit: One thing that I like and the author pulls off well is the world’s reaction to an emerging Chinese genius..and the PRC’s reaction. Though the premise is unrealistic, the reactions of the people surrounding the MC feels real.:D

    Edit2: or about as real in a wuxia novel..:ROFLMAO:

    On a scale of "CHYNA NUMBAH WON" to "Glorious Chinese, all others are foreigner pigs", where does this novel stand on the bigotry and racism scale

    So far, excepting one slur (mild, about 5-6, out of 10, on the racist scale) on Japan, that’s it. :D It is pretty ”China is best”, though. But more realistic, as China has yet to win a Fields medal, so a lot of people support the MC.:rolleyes:

    Another excellent recommendation if you like this would be Throne of Magical Arcana. MC is reincarnated Chinese, so no racism and full science with a side of religion bad.

    Some slurs against Koreans and Washington Times newspaper, implied slurs against Americans. Not as bad as most, but not nice. Still bearable, though I’m Korean.:( And blacks, a bit. Chapter 245.

    It gets so much better after that. Continue reading and MTL is also decently okay. It really details the origins of relativity, quantum physics, QED and more modern math in a fun, magical world. And no hate against any race.

    And my dude, after railing against Koreans, Japanese, Americans and black people, it's kinda hard to take this as anything beyond PRC propaganda lol

    I also read Solo Leveling, which has Japanese plotting against Koreans, and there are a number of Japanese novels with slurs.

    Being free of slurs doesn’t make a novel good, and having slurs doesn’t make a novel bad. I just couldn’t stand the pacing of Throne. I did give it a try, 200 chapters worth. I just didn’t find it compelling.:p
