About this deal

The book might just be good enough reading for anyone, but being somewhat familiar with typical xianxia settings and tropes will probably help avoid a lot of confusion. A slow, simple, fulfilling life in a place where nothing exciting or out of the ordinary ever happens . In my opinion I think expert xianxia readers should definitely give this a try, as in my opinion i believe this to be a breath of fresh air after all those absurd plotlines. In all honesty, him being crushed by one of the inner disciples looking for someone to "practise" with was a forgone conclusion, even with the age difference.

In conclusion This is a pretty damn kick ass book and unless you completely Hate the title with the passion of a thousand suns you are gonna like this book. Remembering his old life causes him such discomfort that he prefers to avoid thinking about it altogether. com (for now) but dude, if they already made an audiobook out of book 1 then book 2 should be for sale soon, and probably already is by the time you read this. And it's actually cool, how you implement Taoism, in story, because many cultivations are based on it, but cultivators themselves, don't stuck to this pathway.

The usual tropes of xianxia are present in this world but the MC decides from the start that he does not want to be a part of that dog-eat-dog; survival of the strongest world.

The sexual awkwardness is the usual for this kind of story, with the protagonist spending far too many words explaining why he felt uncomfortable undressing a wounded woman, and the same woman later admiring him in her mind (over and over) for not taking advantage of her.

This is for the people who are tired of day to day life and just want to go live on a farm somewhere, but not a real farm, because that’s a lot of work, but a magic farm. It turns out that being kind and gentle pays dividends that he's not even seeking and I found that very engaging. Casualfarmer started writing after listening to his parents’ stories on their long drives to visit relatives.

Rou is a cultivator that ends up dying, because he is considered too weak and is picked upon the stronger cultivators. The different characters come alive on the page, from the farm animals to a cultivator from another sect to leader of the area who worries about offending the cultivator. The story begins when he decides to leave the sect to become a farmer, as far away from the world of cultivators as possible. His tanned skin and freckles had spoken of a lifetime of heavy labour, without the higher realms to prevent them. Beware of Chicken may not be perfect, but I absolutely love the characters, the story, the way it's written, and I'm currently re-reading the chapters that were published so far, while waiting for new chapters with baited breath.

It picks up every thread, every theme, every scrap of brilliance from the first book and just starts sprinting with them.
