There are seven types of conflict in literature man v man man v nature etc Cultivating books are set up to be man v self except here Here the author pretty much ignores that in favor of a man v society approach The MC is a commoner who makes it into a cultivation sect at the same time as a young noble from his hometown For some reason this noble takes this as an affront and seeks to do the MC harm Never mind that if the noble succeeds in harming the MC the noble risks being kicked out of the sect in disgrace ruining his own life In other words the major flaw of this book is laughably one dimensional villains Take the young noble he risks everything for nothing At one point the MC even wonders at why the young noble hates him and can t figure it out That is as good as the author admitting he has failed to give his main antagonist motivation for his actions And where are the big city nobles that look down on country nobles so lacking in honor as to lower themselves to fighting with commoners The author can t even be bothered with cliches to give his main antagonist that slight bit depth This is so prevalent throughout the book that I could just say that the author s world building is shallow For example the MC upon arriving at the sect is put to work Later he finds out that he was suppose register his work with a sect department The punctilious and petty jerk in charge of registration department who is also a noble gives the MC an assignment likely to kill him as punishment for failing to register Never mind the fact that there was no way for the MC know about the department sooner or that this happens with enough freuency that the elder that put the MC to work had a bet with himself about how long it would take the MC to realize he had to register his work assignment Again the nobles are bizarrely uniformly petty but united Where s the underling that hopes to move up and so reports the registrar s inappropriate behavior to the registrar s enemies Such a ridiculously petty and vindictive individual would have made plenty of enemies at the sect but the author can t be bothered to put thought into anyone s actions but the MCsIn spite of the foregoing I enjoyed 34ths of this book since most of it focuses on the MC s journey The problem is the poorly written antagonists are key to the story and virtually the entire focus of the final chapters Which leads me to this book s next problem a weak resolutionThe book has a small culmination with the MC accomplishing something fairly impressive However he does this by greatly antagonizing all the nobles since they are completely uniform in their actions and thoughts The nobles were already risking everything to just bully the MC so this book essentially ends with the start of a serious class war This of course significantly undermines any sense of story resolution So this author appears to be yet another in a long line that attempts to get readers to come back for the rest of the story rather than because they are actually good writersBottom line Largely an okay read but not particularly inspired with truly poorly written antagonists Of Water and the Spirit: Ritual, Magic and Initiation in the Life of an African Shaman (Compass) young noble from his hometown For some reason this noble takes this as an affront and seeks to do the MC harm Never mind that if the noble succeeds in harming the
