My Longevity Simulation

Review of "My Longevity Simulation" by Novelight

"My Longevity Simulation" by Angry Squid is an engaging Chinese web novel that blends elements of xianxia, time travel, and simulation into a unique cultivation story. The novel's premise revolves around Li Fan, a transmigrator who discovers a unique ability that allows him to simulate his life, effectively enabling him to return to a specific point in time and make different choices. This mechanic not only adds depth to the narrative but also offers a fresh take on the traditional cultivation genre.

Plot and Setting
The story is set in a world deeply affected by a deadly plague that has separated mortals and immortals. Immortals risk losing their cultivation or even their lives upon contact with infected mortals, creating a bleak and isolated existence for them. This separation is a central theme that drives the protagonist’s quest for immortality and shapes the novel's dark, intricate world​​.

Characters
Li Fan, the protagonist, is portrayed as a calm, calculating, and somewhat ruthless character whose actions are driven by a singular goal: achieving immortality. His ability to simulate his life and learn from each iteration allows for complex character development and strategic thinking. Unlike many cultivation novels, "My Longevity Simulation" does not focus on romance or personal relationships; instead, it emphasizes Li Fan's relentless pursuit of power and survival​​​​.

Themes and Tone
The novel explores themes of perseverance, strategy, and the moral ambiguities of the path to power. Li Fan's journey is marked by numerous challenges and setbacks, and his willingness to manipulate time and events highlights the lengths he will go to achieve his goals. The tone is generally serious and introspective, with a strong focus on world-building and the intricate rules of cultivation affected by the plague​​​​.

Writing Style
The writing style is detailed and immersive, particularly in its world-building. The author takes care to explain the complexities of the cultivation system and the unique simulation mechanic, which adds depth to the narrative. However, some readers have noted that the early chapters can feel rushed, potentially due to the author's attempt to quickly capture reader interest. Despite this, the pacing improves as the story progresses​​​​.

Overall Impression
"My Longevity Simulation" stands out in the cultivation genre for its innovative use of time simulation and its focus on a protagonist who is more strategist than warrior. While the lack of romantic subplots and the protagonist's cold demeanor might not appeal to all readers, those who enjoy intricate plots and detailed world-building will find much to appreciate. The novel's unique approach to cultivation and its dark, methodical tone make it a compelling read for fans of the genre.
