Recommandation for novels?

Could you guys recommend me some novels?

What I am looking for is a novel with the hero who became stronger and increase in power ranks (like most of the novel), and an unheroic attitude, meaning either the protagonist lives with real struggle to just survive (and so use any way possible to survive), the hero is totally shameless (funny way or vicious way).or filled with vengeance against the world. (Basically, a hero with little or no honor, with the mentality: if it keep me alive or make me stronger, better do it)

For example: Funny shameless hero: Tales of demons and God
Vicious shameless hero: Warlock of the Magic World
Struggle to survive: the parts in the mountain range of magical beasts in Coiling Dragon
Filled with vengeance: Renegade immortal (I am not very far in this one, so maybe I am wrong)

    Basically 90% of the all Chinese Xianxia novels followed what you are looking for. Any of the currently translated novels online will fit to your liking. With that said, I recommend: 'I Shall Seal The Heavens', 'Peerless Martial God', or "Transcending the Nine Heavens'. You can't go wrong with any of these.
  • Stellar Tranformations, WDQ, TGR, Dragon Martial Emperor and DE  are also good

  • @Ovnidemon Besides the recommendations that already have been suggested, here are some more. :)

    -    Demon’s Diary: If you liked Warlock of the Magus World, you will come to love Demon’s Diary.
    -    Long Live Summons: Funny, shameless Hero, who trolls allot. But is also often serious, and even give you the taste of a “vicious hero who is filled with vengeance.”
    -    A Record of a Mortal’s Journey to Immortality, Kings Shura, and Ze Tian Ji: Novels, which are right up your alley, and I suggest that you give them a try! :)
    -    My Own Novel: Fits your criteria. The protagonist grows stronger, increases in power (ranks) and struggles with real-life issues. For instance, they are poor, and his mother suffers from a grave illness. ;) :)

    Not really. While a lot of novel start like that, they change often after. Example: Coiling dragon. While the beginning is a struggle to survive, he eventually becomes so cheated that only the foes ares still a threat. It lost the "do everything to survive" part, the part where the hero needs to be cautious of everything, even the environnement.

    For the vengeance, as I have seen, a lot of novels have a big bad guy against wich the hero seeks revenge, but not the whole world. They often put a very manichean setting (there is the bad guys and the good guys and nothing between it). When I talked about filled with vengeance, i really meant it. It's about somebody trusting no one and using everybody. For example, not Coiling Dragon (I know, again with it, but it's the only one completed that I finished). While the hero often seeks vengeance for his family, it's only directed against one guy or group. In opposite, in Renegade Immortal, the hero hates nearly everybody, is cautious of everybody knowing that betrayal can happen anywhere, ...

    Finally, many heroes are goody willy. (Douluo dalu, immortal throne, ...), protecting honor of the family, avenging a dead realtive, ... Rarely doing things for themselves.

    And other example of shameless hero (but not chinese) is Moonlight Sculptor: the hero uses any means to gain money, never give his trust immediatly, constantly works hard (yes, I know a lot of novel put hard-working hero. But you rarely feel it. Example: Immortal Throne: they just say in one sentence that he is hard-working. You never feel a real struggle).

    And thanks for the recommandations, I will look into it.

    Edit: I think I expressed myself wrongly. When I talk about shameless, it's more in the meaning of honorless, cunny, using even underhanded methods. Example: Nie Lie from TDG rarely had a difficult battle, always having a large advantage, and always crushed his enemies miserably, showing no mercy.
  • Not a big fan of I eat tomatoes. I like his novels but not that much, the heroes are too OP very rapidly. Also, they don't have an ounce of carefulness or wariness. And finally, there is too much coincidences.
  • I eat Tomatoes' The Nine Cauldrons had a pretty cautious main character. He's a reincarnated hitman after all.

    True Martial World and Martial World because the main characters are hard working.

    Magus Era is a pretty amazing read with a pretty unique cultivation system.  Plus the main character actually has a pretty awesome master who gives out powerful items like candy.  Except, the main character is still forced to struggle just to keep the human race alive despite this.

    Can you read Chinese?  If you can then here's a lot more to recommend.

  • Perfect World's Shi Hao got all of what you are stated above.
  • Can't read chinese. I wish I could, but I am pretty bad in foreign language. Will look to your recommandations.
  • these 2 books or some what in your line the only thing is the mcs aren't weak and don't really have to struggle that much until maybe when the last battles are about to start but they or both base on shameless rough badass mc who don't give 2 shits about the world and only care about them self and the people around them and they arent any noble hero 

    the first one is My Beautiful wife president 
    the link for the raw is here but some chapters or mix up and repeats of the same chapters so for some you would have to serch up the chapter online to find the original this is only if you wish to use to raw text

    If you just want the already translated version from machine and just want to correct the grammatical mistakes and some wording then i already have all the chapters in the right order  from when i read it on this link ;

    so the genres of the book has Comedy/action/drama/fantasy/city/harem/romance and so on 
    The MC name is Yang Chang and he came back home to china after being abroad for almost all of his life to enter in to society and live a normal life
    but due to many un foreseen events cause to mc to give up on living a normal life and do what he desire. theirs plenty of action and drama and like i say it's build in modern time the harem is pretty big tho .-. but un like some story's most of the woman in it have a character and not just some fuck toy the mc is a full fledged bad ass with no one as his master or who he bow down to  except for maybe his mother and wife at times >_> 
    heres a sneak preview of some info on the mc 

    Yang Chen - Actor, looks ordinary, lazy temperament. A man wearing a ring of Pluto, with unknown mysterious past. Had grown up outside, he returned to China after the country selected in the vegetable market selling mutton string. A chance accident, get to know the beauty CEO multinational companies, as some obscure reason and can not bear seeing the woman as she is, promised to marry. Since then, the family of small contradictions, the beauty around began emerging one by one with trouble come it's way. Forgotten Realms (forgottenrealms) master. Eventually became the guardian of the world
    this book is really good so i really recommend you guys checking it out. the next one is  

    Drawing a master in the city 
    this is the link to the raw ;
    unlike the other one all the chapters or in the right order and if you use chrome you can just let it do automatic translate and copy it and edit it if you wish to just correct grammatical mistakes and wording and if not then just copy the raw
    both of these books are really awesome so i just wanted to put them out there in case no one have found them yet 

    I for one may like this one more then the one above. at some times this books mc is a true bad ass born to be wild and not any one in this world can control him even his wives can barely stop him at times genres or similar to above.

    instead of a synopses i'll just give info on the character bio read with caution cause it contains many spoilers here and there

Upper body is a plain white T-shirt, pants or some white washed jeans, a pair of feet marching on yellowing white sports shoes, which together a full-line head, fear is not worth one hundred yen. 

    19 years old at the begin of the story claims to be the first master in the world and first doctor of the world.

    most people think he is an idiot because of his straightforwardness and over the top ways of getting rid of trouble but it is the complete opisit he is shown to be one of the wises and smartest man in the book he just prefers to get rid of trouble the fastest way he knows by just destroying who ever gets in his way due to no matter how smart you are against absolute power it is nothing. Only when he can't use absolute power he relys more on his brain and uses some really crule ways to do it.
