    Wish the book was longer.

    I love this series so far and my only regret is that I wish the book was longer. It's like the Cradle series where the books are around eight hours long. By the time you are really into it the book is a quarter or half over. I end up finishing them in two to three days LOL. Then I have to wait six months for the next Uh. Hope the next Thousand Lee or System Apocalypses comes out soon.

    Not as good as the first.

    The first book was an underdog story. He rose from poor farmer to sect member, to inner sect member. He was harshly discriminated against for being poor, kicked down at every chance, and barely gained any respect. He was able to change expectations, and clawed his way up through hard work and determination. This book however, is mundane...

    He learns a few styles, dabbles in smithing, pill-making, fighting, but never really does anything amazing or unordinary. Several times throughout the book he is told he has no talent for each subject, he is just average. AND he accepts that! He doesn't find a unique style to throw himself into. His professions yield little fruit. It is so frustrating.

    Why is he suddenly so ordinary? Why does he not have any true passion? Why does he progress so slowly? My biggest concern are the time jumps. There are several, skipping days, weeks, and months. For all the time that is passing, little is actually happening. I am disappointed. The first book was more more well done. This one is just "eh".

    The narrator is decent, being able to portray different male and female voices. Range doesn't go high or low though. It is also very difficult to tell the characters apart when they have such similar voices. Not to mention I still have trouble with the traditional Chinese names. Being a single language speaker, it is difficult for me to latch onto names I can't easily recognize. You may see this as petty or my fault for not being cultured enough, but it is a real concern that should be taken into account when selling to a specific audience.

    Overall: I am not too pleased with how this book turned out. If I have to wait 6 hours for anything remotely substantial to occur then something is wrong. This book was still mildly enjoyable but the first book did it much better.. The narrator did a decent job. Characters and plot may be hard to follow if you are unfamiliar with Chinese culture.

    Good cultivation novel.

    It is slow, no super power ups or skipping ranks. It's a slow grind that 99.9% of cultivation novel's skip. Our Mc is a minor character in the grand scheme of things and that's what makes it so good, he doesn't have all the answers does solve all the problems or anything like that. I liked it personally.

    Travis Baldree did a amazing job as always he's how I've found 3 books so far after his narration of cradle.

    Perfect scores all around.

    Really good, loved the character development.

    The time spent exploring the world and the different aspects of cultivation is amazing. I truly love how the author took his time and told the story. Good job dude.

    Book felt like a filler episode

    The story was slow except for the last hour. nothing important or significant happened in the main character’s development he didn’t really grow Physically or mentally. Most likely won’t continue this series if character development is this slow.

    Way too good, keep them coming Tao!

    Finished the first book in The Thousand Li series. Immediately used another credit to continue the binge. This book is at least as good as the first.

    Right now I am torn between buying the Kindle edition of the third book, or waiting until Travis Baldree narrates it.

    Besides being a cornerstone piece of modern wuxia novels, this book and the last are just plain well written. The pacing, the narration, the details that make you feel there and visualize what is going on, without overdoing it, and the believable human interaction and natural dialogue. The author has proven himself to be one of my favorite modern writers. Now I am going to look at his other books.

    A slump after the first book

    The second entry in this series loses a lot of the pressure behind the main character that drove his growth in the first book. Instead, the book opts for almost a slice of life entry, with protagonist exploring different jobs and thinking about how to get more money. The series may pick up momentum again in the third book, but for now I would probably keep this book on a wish list and maybe pick it up later on when the series develops further.

    Travis baldree rocks it again as the narrator, giving life to all characters no matter the ho hum story backdrop.
