A Record of a Mortal’s Journey to Immortality Novel Review


A poor and ordinary boy from a village joins a minor sect in Jiang Hu and becomes an Unofficial Disciple by chance. How will Han Li, a commoner by birth, establish a foothold for himself in his sect? With his mediocre aptitude, how will he successfully traverse the path of cultivation and become an immortal?.

This is a story of an ordinary mortal who, against all odds, clashes with devilish demons and the ancient celestials in order to find his own path to immortality. This is definitely my favorite novel, and the reason it's simple: this novel is unique. Not some unique idea, world or cultivation, but a unique feeling it pass to you, the best way to describe is reading the title: A journey to immortality. 

I read many xianxia novels, good ones, but none could get myself so into the story like this one. You feel the struggle, the dangers, and most important, the achievements. This novel is probably the closest to 'real' wich a xianxia can get! Why? Many factors, one of those, the pace. Cultivation takes time, or it probably should as many authors say, but don't show it, but not here. 

In RMJI each level on cultivation means a lot, and so little. A lot because it shows how powerful one gets, how desired it's just one more level. A little because it's often show that thoses levels don't mean everything, and if one is careless he may lose his life, like it should be on a so called 'dangerous cultivation world'.


Other important thing to this, is for sure the MC, he is likeable, wich seems to be rare on CN, and maybe most important, relatable. This is due to the fact that he uses his brain, he is calm, he feels human, and we accompany him since his childhood and naivety. How Han Li (MC) grows is fantastic, and you understand his action e understand him, sometimes you know what he would do in certain circumstances, something rare in any literature.

I really recommend this to anyone to read. Some say that is dull, I can't see that way, it may be slow sometimes but I can only see as necessary. Read this if you want do experiencie a adventure. Read this if you want to see what a real journey is.
