Synopsis

Do young adults get nervous when they turn 18? Sure. Do they expect to die just a few months later at the hands of their own family and estranged friends like a cliché movie? Definitely not, at least our protagonist didn't and needless to say, he's not very happy. Then again, I guess that means I have to kill everyone who killed me...I'm cool with that, as long as I'm out of the way. So they get powers, I get nothing but a journal, my family hates me, and if I ever do something that stands out enough to be caught by a 'God' I'm going to die? This sounds like a cliché beginning for a villain, but if I get strong enough and stay out of the way it shouldn't be a problem then, right?

      Status: the familiar of fate: chapter 19 – out of expectations
      Dec 28, 2019

      It feels like the author just wanted to write an isekai reincarnation story where the reincarnated individual suffers severe abuse. The drama between the MC and his mother is rather well done. Unfortunately, it feels like the mother's character motivations are the only aspect the writer considered with any degree of seriousness, and forgot to make the rest of the supporting cast feel like real people.

      The worst is definitely the premise by which the MC died. A bunch of gods tell a group of 20 people to go kill an autistic kid, and they will be rewarded for it by being reincarnated. That is something that definitely makes no sense for gods of any world to do, and makes even less sense why the characters would actually do it, and all 20 of them would actually act in concert.

      Next, there is the character of Jacob. His character is just very VERY inconsistent. One moment he will be sympathizing with the MC, the next he will be 100% fanatically in line with the mother to the point he aligns his thinking with hers and he also thinks of the MC as trash. It is just impossible to follow, and has the feel of him just having whatever attitude is convenient to the author at the time to the extent it ruins his character.

      The father is the one though where the holes in his character make me think of him as absolute scum. There is a saying that the only thing needed for evil to succeed is for good people to do nothing. He has the feel of said good person who does nothing to him, and he has to be seriously dumb to not realize what his wife is doing to his son given the premise we are provided with.

      It just feels clumsy in implementation to an extreme degree. If we ignore the existence of every character in the story except the MC and his mother, it is a story about some rather horrific child abuse that is sorta Ok in implementation. If we even stop to consider where a single one of the supporting cast fits into this though, the gears of the story start clunking and it looks like a total mess.

      pro:

      first the writing is very well done, im not going to lie it felt pretty realistic and enjoyed the writing a lot.  

      literally only pro to this novel

      cons

      the story itself is very shallow. The issue I notice is that the author seems to write and make up stuff as he goes. (More on this later).

      there is a lack of story progression in this novel. There is no beg -- middle -- end. Lets take the first 50 chapters. Lets call it the family arc, there should be a beg -- middle -- end. Which will allow the MC to growth yet there is a lack of middle or end. The MC is placed worse conditions the the the previous situation.

      the character are inconsistent this a minor issue. You can see this in Jacob, Agatha and  especially Fate. The author created jacob as a henchmen to Agatha (both basically villians) but jacob's personality and motives switches every chapter. The biggest inconsistency is Fate himself, dont forget he a reincarnator yet acts more like a child then an adult. He doesn't cry when he was a baby yet is constantly crying as an toddler. At one point he should realize that the family cant offer him much, that constantly trying to escape from family is better option the being at a manor. Fate is an adult he should act like one, yet there is a constant switch in which the author is telling us he is a child and adult.

      liza is also added into this story way too early. Developing trust especially towards abused children takes months of work not 3 days. (Based on actual social work). Adding Liza into another arc were he is far way from his family would have been way more appealing and natural.

      the story has a lot of fluffy especially with the descriptions. But the interactions are very well done. Honestly I spend 10 min per chapter just to have full understand of the authors intents. Could have skimmed it.

      how to improve.

      writing and grammar very solid and felt like I was there. The author needs to end this arc as this gets very repetitive very fast. The next arc should have certain outline like story progression, characters, MC growth and world explanation.

      recommendation, what certain writers do is have separate documents that are basic outlines of every character so that they can have consistency and if needed to show growth. Also excel sheets for the rpg elements as the tracking of growth can get very complex.

      honestly I normal have an option of novel by chapter 10 and if I wish to drop it or not. Reading this till 50 means that you do have some here. Maybe in a year this novel be at the top

      Different look on the usual isekai trend. Lots of negative thoughts and abuse. All the negative things just make it seem more "realistic" though. I mean, nobody in their right mind would be calm after experiencing all the MC is going through.

      Must prepare yourself though since the author is "kinda" sadistic (he said it himself) lol
