I am unhealthily obsessed with this book.

To preface this review, I've never played games or enjoyed E-sports, ever in my life. Yet, I picked up this almost 2000 chaptered and 6 million character long book. And since that faithful day I couldn't put it down. I was reading it on the bus, at the bus stop, on my toilet breaks... in bed till 6AM in the morning, repeatedly, which I thoroughly regret, but also don't.

Despite it's overwhelming length, I never felt bored, annoyed or irritated. As I read

** This review is a bit long because the book is just too good **

The King's Avatar, also known as Quan Zhi Gao Shou (全职高手) is a Chinese novel written by 蝴蝶蓝Hu Die Lan also known as Butterfly Blue. This novel is very popular to the point that it even has it's own anime and drama series.


I am a bit excited to write this review that I took days to complete this and publish it. After I finished reading the English translated one in webnovel (FINALLY! it is complete), I had to re-read some parts

Yes, I can already see everyone running away at top speed at the sheer number of chapters. But if you're willing to give this a chance, and are interested in a humorous slice of life book with a great ensemble cast you can read for the long-term on your daily commute, this can really put a smile on your face.

The book follows the fall of Ye Xiu, a professional eSports gamer who got kicked out of his old club in favor of a hot new star Sun Xiang, and Ye Xiu's subsequent rise to re-join the world

I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I loved watching this world get built up from beginning to end, as it felt like i was looking in on real characters in their day to day lives.
All the people that made appearances felt like we just happened to run into them on their trip and then we sent them on their way.
It felt like the steps he was taking to achieve his goal were naturally what should have happened. Whether it be going into the game and making a new character, or forming your team to try and

Worth reading if you can get past the first 1,000 or so chapters

the main draw of this webnovel is esports, but the first 1,000~ chapters are meant to build up background of the characters and teams

and a portion of it is the MC trolling teams in the game and irl

the competition aspect starts way later and by then you would have more knowledge on the various teams and players (there's a lot). all the teams are unique in their playstyles and some are even opposites like one relies on solo mechanical

A professional gaming novel that really delves into the nitty-gritty of game mechanism, in-game guild dynamics and professional gaming competition. Lots of technical descriptions about skill, item, positioning, and many other aspects of the game. But what really shines is the characters and their interactions with each other.

I absolutely love the main character! Ye Xiu is the kind of person that is capable of making other people vomit blood just by talking to them. The dialogue between

Tak hluboce jsem klesnul, ze uz ctu Cinske webnovely... Kazdopadne suverenne nejdelsi vec co jsem kdy cetl, nejakych 1800 chapteru, zabralo me to nekolik mesicu (s dlouhou pauzou, tohle fakt nejde cist na jeden zatah). Je to fakt dobre napsane, narozdil od spousty knizek se kvalita s casem spis zvetsuje nez zmensuje. Kdyz zapocitam nezbytne skakani fluffu tak bych tomu dal neco mezi 4 a 4.5 - i kdyz bylo celkem od zacatku jasne jak to dopadne, tak to bylo fakt dobre napsane a bavil jsem se u ...more

First book ive ever read touching on esports, albeit a more fantastical version, that isnt transporting to the game world or the like. Extremely well written, with superb character development, not just the mc, his main team, but all the other teams, friends, rivals etc.., were all very well fleshed out. Great world building, fight descriptions too. Overall highly recommended.

I started reading this translated web-novel since late 2018. It finally concluded today. It is definitely worth the pain of reading one or two chapters a day for over a year. Great characters development, the ending, though predictable, is still a great fun. The twists and turns are very enjoyable.

I normally don't write reviews, but I loved this so much I feel like I have to. I have never read a chinese novel before, nor anything about gaming. And yet, this novel pulled me in. I finished in less than 4 weeks, and spent all my free time trying to get through the overwhelming 1729 chapters. I had to keep going. I didn't expect to like this at all, and I loved it. 10 stars out of 5.

Amazing read from start to finish. Its funny, touching, and exciting at different points of the story. Its also has a believable, consistent story (for the most-part) and a large cast of likeable characters want you want to root for

I'm totally in love with the MC and how dedicated of him to fight himself back to the game.
This book give a very good description on how the training of egame being done and dedication of each player.
The slow development of each character and the plot, give this book alot of re-reading value

Annoying violent girl who forced MC to pay attention to her while he was focused on crucial points in the game made this already boring book unreadable.

Wow. I just finished the book. It was elegantly written. It was hard not to binge read.

Love the anime, the live action series and the novel. I am near the playoffs now and still reading. Chapter 1500 of 1728. about 8-12 hours per 200 chapters, so a very long read. You have to skip some repetitive parts, but overall very worthwhile.
