I'm Really A SuperStar: one of the best alternate Earth novel ever

I have read it and it's a very fun and addictive read.
This novel is very popular in China and has earned the author millions of USD in royalties.



http://www.novelupdates.com/series/i...y-a-superstar/

Improved Synopsis:

Zhang Ye was originally a mundane college graduate, cursed with below average looks and height but with aspiring dreams of becoming famous. However one day, he woke up and suddenly found himself in a parallel world!

In this new world, most things were similar to his previous world but there existed subtle differences, be it: brands, celebrities or even famous works!

Armed with the knowledge of his previous world and a heaven-defying Game Ring that gives him magical items, stats and skills, Zhang Ye embarks on a journey to pursue his life-long dream of becoming a celebrity.

Follow Zhang Ye as he takes the new world by storm, one plagiarized piece at a time, to hilarious reactions!

From one of the reviewer

The general premise is that of a modern day human, Zhang Ye who ends up appearing in another modern day Earth, but now he has a game ring. It is powered by 'Reputation'. He gains Reputation if people approve of something he did. He can use the popularity points to have a chance at a jackpot which can grant him various benefits such as
.
.

His goal is to become the number one celebrity in the world. Now, notice I mentioned that he came into another modern Earth, but this Earth has something different with its entertainment history or even history. It can be backwater in certain ways compared to his own Earth, so he can plagiarize...I mean share the knowledge from his own world to this world and become popular as a result.




other reviewers:

This novel is hilarious! I couldn't stop myself from grinning while reading. Can't wait to read the rest of it.





As I finish the hijack-arc, I can only say one thing...
This is "COMEDY".
I laugh so hard!





From the moment i read the description, i knew that reading "im really a superstar" would be poison for my soul... but i never knew that it would be this bad.
It's so bad that I spent hours binge reading it until morning the next day.
Now you all know how bad it is, so go ahead and drink this poison!
On a more serious note, it might seem like a "the fudge" novel the first time you take a glance at it. I mean, what would you expect from a story that essentially has a character that plagiarizes every literary and popular thing from our world, right? EVERYTHING, Zhang ye is wayyy more than i thought he would be. For one thing, in my opinion he has a very well fleshed out character. The way he feels anger and frustration with the injustice he faces in the media industry is my favourite part about him.

Perhaps it might be worth mentioning that:

A) It's written in Chinese.
B) It appears to be incomplete.

Yes, it's written in Chinese, but is actively being translated into English by a group of dedicated fans.

And, yes, it's incomplete and may never be finished, as these types of books seems to go on for thousands and thousands of pages - something their fans seem to appreciate.

I should point out that this is something I do NOT wish to read, although there are some readers here at Mobileread who find this method of presentation attractive.

In the meantime, give me ALL of Barry Hughart and Ernest Bramah!

I certainly have no wish to read an unfinished book. The whole point of a novel is to reach a good conclusion. Without that you've got the literary equivalent of:

Never did understand why so many fantasy fans seem so averse to endings.

The first arc (chapter 1 to chapter 85) is about him being a radio host and use his knowledge of this "Earth" to do well in the other "Earth."

Poems
Fairy Tales
Children books
Popular novels
Even social media "meme" to gain reputation.


90 chapters have been translated in less than 3 weeks. The current translation rate is 2 chapters a day.

1 year = about 700 chapters if the current 14 chapters a week is met.


I'm guessing that the later arc will be him using this Earth's songs, movies, tv shows, musicals to make himself famous in the other Earth.

To me, this seems like a rather big mess.
