Wouldn’t recommend, wouldn’t listen to again, but overall a good story.

I would not recommend this book to myself after having listened to it, but now that I’ve gotten through the first I am probably going to get the second...
The story did pick up after about chapter 18, up until then I was listening to this book believing I was going to be disappointed with it overall but in the end the story has left me curious about what will happen next. So that is definitely a plus.
While not focusing on stats too much (this is largely a story about someone with low stats finding creative ways to make himself more dangerous) it sure dives into stats DEEP when it does, which can make it pretty boring. If the listener doesn’t care about the stats because you aren’t making stats a big deal, then maybe don’t describe them like you’re reading the drop down sub-text...

There were a number of things in this book which annoyed me greatly, one of them being the main characters voice. Jeff Hayes does a great job in every book I’ve listened to which he narrates, a top performer for sure. This is why I’m led to believe the author had some input as to why the main character sounds like his chest is puffed out every time he says something. It’s as though someone asked Jeff to make the MC sound as predictably “hero” as he could. It leaves no room for dynamic or emotion in the character’s voice. There are some moments where you can hear Jeff slip into a more casual speaking candour, which is refreshing, before he corrects himself.
And then there are choices characters make.....
SPOILERS.
Don’t read further if you want to read this book.
The sheriff is aware that the inquisition will murder the town and even surrounding areas because of the threat of the bane. So if someone could please explain to me why when he sees the spiders -who he recognizes have the ability to smell the bane- killing towns folk and hunting the bane, why... does he decide to protect the people and attack the spiders when he has admitted that it’s his duty to tell the inquisition about the bane, therefore killing the townsfolk anyway? His character is the definition of a white knight to the point of getting in his own way.
The ranger who brought the bane didn’t seem to have a very convincing reason for doing so either. Kind of seemed like a rushed explanation of why things started.
The MC does a fairly good job of explaining that he doesn’t mean harm to anyone, and has the means to suss out the bane as their own world’s magic’s objectivity, yet no one trusts him even after he’s demonstrated its ability to do just that?

I did not finish this book.
The narrator’s character voices are great, and they do a good job of the dialogue but their narration of the story from the point of view of the main character was all over the place and kept finding myself focused on the strange pauses, emphasis’s, and inflections in places that didn’t make any sense. After every sentence I found myself waiting for the sentence to continue because... it just might!
I can’t speak on the story since in didn’t get past the start, but I’ve seen it recommended lots so I’m sure it’s fine.

Okay so first off this book/series will drive a LOT of people away once they get to some of the more inappropriate parts. So to save you a credit, I will tell you that if you’re NOT willing to stomach xxx demon on demon scenes happening out of nowhere the maybe you should move on. If you’re NOT willing to overlook every single female mentioned being described by their ample features, I suggest you think about another series. If you’re UNWILLING to humour the idea of a cross-species harem surrounding a genderless main character then I implore you to move on before you find yourself affronted with these lewd and raunchy parts and end up leaving a poor review of this splendidly ridiculous story.
IF you DO want to read a story where the main character is a monster, then go ahead. If you ARE searching for a litrpg series where the characters are born into the world and don’t respawn, then this is for you. If you LIKE the idea of a bumbling murder hobo who is protected by how little they understand then YES, this series is for you!
I cannot wait for the next books to be released via audible and am eagerly looking for another series to read in its place until then.
*this story and series would still stand on its own without the gratuitous sex scenes, that’s how genuinely great it is. Un/fortunately however, they do end up being integral to the story. :)

“Our inability to move frees us from the obligation to act”
This book will be one that I never forget.
The performances were incredible with many difficult and unique voices pulled off extremely well. There was never any confusion between characters at all.
The story was something I was not prepared for and ended up leaving me with a mountain of concepts and ideas to mull over. The world creation O. S. Card has managed with this is outstanding and incredibly creative, complex, and well explained.
I cannot fathom how someone could organically come up with all the intricacies inherent with the Descolada.

I suppose I just didn't understand what litRPG was when I dove into this, so this isn't to say that the content wouldn't be what someone else is looking for, I just believe the story would benefit from not being interrupted by pings and notifications constantly reminding you that the character is not in an organic world/realm. The constant forced humour from the main character seems plainly out of character, how quickly he adapts and accepts to being thrown into a new world with no idea of how to leave is unbelievable, and any attempts to make him relatable make me want to distance myself from that person. The only time he had ever swung his fists were at "frat boys when they got too close to his female friends"? come on...
