Description

Jason wakes up in a mysterious world of magic and monsters.

It’s not easy making the career jump from office-supplies-store middle manager to heroic interdimensional adventurer. At least, Jason tries to be heroic, but it's hard to be good when all your powers are evil.

He’ll face off against cannibals, cultists, wizards, monsters...and that’s just on the first day. He’s going to need courage, he’s going to need wit, and he’s going to need some magic powers of his own. But first, he’s going to need pants.

After cementing itself as one of the best-rated serial novels on Royal Road with an astonishing 13 million views, He Who Fights with Monsters is now brought to you in professionally formatted audio.

Glad I didn't uninstall

The first hour or two wasn't great. Generic. But maaaan does it pick up afterwards. Book goes from "Did I really buy this?" to "how much time is left? awwww!" after a few chapters.

Hilarious

The combat itself is good but I think the comedy is what makes this audio book absolutely shine, it was hilarious and I loved every minute of it xD

I loved it!

This book one of the best LitRPG books on Audible, and it just arrived! It was very funny, half because of the way the MC is written, and half because the narrator did a fantastic job with the characters. The plot was easy to follow and progresses at a very good pace. The MC's friends come in and out of the picture, never taking up too much or too little time. They aren't annoying leeches (hah) that cling to the MC, or go along with everything he says just because he's the MC, which is common in this genre. There is a little romance, but it's well done and barely part of the story, with the love interest being stronger than our MC (so far at least), which again, unusual for this genre. The ranking system is easy to follow and understand. Power scaling is good, there's no super OP abilities with 0 drawbacks which is refreshing. Side characters are used well, and aren't thrown away after a few lines so they can actually contribute to the story. The God's in particular interest me, I hope we can get more info on them in the second book!

Overall, solid 10/10 book.
I cannot wait for the second book, 2 months has never seemed so far away..

A total surprise.

I gotta be honest I don't write reviews often even for books I love because reviews are so subjective but I really love this book. I have not finished the book yet I'm about 11houtd from completion but I am seriously hoping that there will be a 2nd book in this universe I love the adventures Jason gets into

Very Different

Full disclaimer, I've never read a LitRPG before.

That being said this is a very interesting book. Entertaining and funny. The narration style change when reading out abilities and attributes is a bit jarring but not overly so.

The ideas and systems being thrown around are very cool and overall the book is well written but I occasionally thought I had missed something. The transitions between scenes weren't explicit and I'd find my self rewinding to figure out what had happened. Plots were dropped for whole chapters with no reference to them and then picked back up.

Overall though I found it enjoyable. If you are into a fish out of water tale with a fantasy twist this might be right down your alley.

Too much system.

This book is probably about 60% explaining the leveling system and 40% actual story. the 40% is really good but it got really bogged down in the meta system.

Escapism at its best

It takes a bit to get into it, but well worth the read. Setting and characters well developed. I look forward to the second book in the series.

good buy

if you can hold out for about 3 hours the book will get good. it starts off slowly and you'll think it's a load of shit but it's probably one if the better books on Audible.

Great!

Took a flyer on a new title. This is one that I'm going to keep.

I'm liking the the character development. We see (at least somewhat) believable characters who have moments of insensitivity, moments of apology, and who grow. We have a good-natured protagonist (23 years old, male, Australian) with lots of personality, perhaps fitting some Australian character tropes. I like the way that interactions between teammates are handled.

I'm liking the worldbuilding. Our character has entered a new world. While I do read books with intense worldbuilding, this one has a deft touch. Cities and locations are described in an accessible level of detail, enough to picture the locations without being swamped with details.

Although this is a LitRPG, we really and truly are not inundated with lists of stats. The character receives a new ability. It's named, and that's about it - up until we need to learn more about it. We see sections of his character sheet when they are relevant, we're not inundated with character sheet reviews. It's quite refreshing.

I think the narration's truly great. It's a good performance, easy to listen to, with characters coming to life.

This is well above average for the genre, a book full of personality. 4.5 to 5 stars.

LITRPG at its absolute best!


I don't know what exactly I can say that would do this book the credit its due. I will say that it's probably the very best LITRPG I've ever listened to, bar none. To put that into perspective, I have listened to at least 200 hours of varied LITRPG. I've enjoyed much of it.

The things I love about this book are numerous. Let's start with the main character. Jason is relatable and down to earth. He's got a clever mind and a sharp tongue. The later gets him into vast amounts of trouble while the former just barely helps him manage it, if only by the skin of his teeth. His abilities are unique and quite powerful, but not to the degree that he can just waltz through every circumstance. His power is earned and his skills are gained through a combination of dumb luck, good advice, and a tireless work ethic to become more. Additionally, Jason has friends that are both on his level and above it.

The characters, dialogue, humor, places, and plot arcs are all written incredibly well. In fact, the prose in the book is written so well, it's in a class of it's own in the LITRPG genre. I'm sure many of you are screaming at me "What about The Land? That's some good stuff, right?" Sure, "The Land" is good. This is better in most respects with the exception of 1 thing, which brings me to the only "not the best ever" thing I can say regarding this book: the LITRPG aspects are not very crunchy.

I, for one, am fine with that. There's still loot, inventory, combat logs, health bars, abilities, etc, etc. The book is still LITRPG, but specifics are glossed over. This was done in such a way that I'm sure it was an intentional choice by the author. You see, Shirtaloon avoids numbers. There are no values for health, manage, stamina, or damage. While I do enjoy crunchy LITRPG, doing it right is pretty difficult as the pitfalls of overly verbose repetition, consistency, development trees, etc, etc are numerous. "The Land" is a prime example of a series that suffers from overly repeating itself. (I'm not trying to knock The Land, specifically. I'm merely using it as the basis of comparison regarding LITRPG as it's probably the most well known.)

I haven't listened to any books narrated by Heath Miller prior to this book. I almost didn't use the credit because of that. After listening to the preview and the rest of the book, I can say that Miller nails the narration with all the credit this book is due.

If you like LITRPG, clever main characters, good dialogue, and a book that's just amazingly well written, spend the credit. You won't regret it.

Comprehensive Review

The quick summery is that, if you like LitRPGs, this is a great edition to the genre of LitRPGs while not technically being/behaving like one. This reads more as an adventure-super power epic tale. No detailed gameplay stat pages, no AI run world with NPCs, and no developers. This book has an interesting leveling system, well written protagonist, good worldbuilding, and excellent development of supporting characters.

Reviewing the plot, protagonist, and supporting characters in more detail:

The plot is good, while not being riveting. Our main character essentially is coming into the world and establishing himself in this first book of the series. He is leveling, learning about the world, and finding his place as an adventurer in the political and social power structure. He goes on a few smaller adventures and a couple big ones but the author does a great job making each one flow into the next.

Our protagonist is a really sharp guy. But to be honest, while well written, he was the biggest con of the book after 28 hours of listening to him. At times you love his wit and snarky tone coupled with his courage to always be himself; at other times it feels like the author is trying to make a point that is too heavy for light fantasy reading. Jason has two sore spots that get old fast and begin to feel like talking points for the author outside the story: 1st is the socio-economical and political state of the world. Jason will literally go on rants about inequality and power again and again, acknowledging himself as the privileged class but excusing himself because he isn't the guy at the very top. 2nd is the protagonists overly clear atheism while he was on earth and obvious utter disrespect for theists. In Jason's new world Gods are real, but despite accepting less familiar concepts at face value he demeans and mocks priests and their religious orders, as well as normal people who venerate them. On one hand our protagonist having these annoying qualities makes him seem more human and real, especially because the world around him often checks him or proves him wrong. However, these pints come up enough and with enough emphasis to seem like the author is going out of his/her way to express a view to the detriment of the plot.

Lastly, the supporting characters are absolutely excellent and our protagonist's interactions with them are superb. By far one of my favorite aspects of this story was how real and important characters that Jason meets in the world feel. Indeed, without giving away too much, Sofia and Belinda's sub plot is worked in really well and builds excellently into the final chapters of the book. I kept wanting to learn more about these supporting characters around Jason, where they are from, their families, what powers they have, and what was driving them.

I am strongly looking forward to the next book in the series!

Meh

Snarky atheist took a philosophy 101 course and thinks he's clever; in actuality he's insufferable. I listened to the whole thing...So it could be worse. I never really engaged with a anyone or any major story line. The litrpg elements lacked currency and didn't seem determinative. I don't think MC was dumb as some reviews have said, I think the author made him always the smartest guy in the room -- or at least the guy who always think he it. The rating is far too high imho. But I guess people are digging it?

I really like the start of the book But goes downhill

There’s some parts in the book where Jason the main Character Goes on these rants about Political and religious beliefs It seems like it happens over and over again he just keeps bringing it up Which is just annoying another problem with the Story is it seems like every character comes in Contact with Jason becomes new version of Jason. starts off great
I really like the Magic system in place. But Want to say again those rants about political religious views it’s OK to have one or two of those in a Fantasy book I’m not reading or Listening to fantasy books for super deep Thought on power structures of the wealthy and the poor Also It’s a totally different scenario in this universe we don’t have super powers

Can’t take any more

This is the weakest and most inept MC I have ever seen. I get and appreciate the authors attempt to make his transition, into a new world and the pain of losing everything, more realistic. But, he went to far the other way. In addition the MCs personality is so annoying I couldn’t even listen to the book for more than an hour at a time before yelling at my Alexa to stop. The MC handles every conversation with snark, which is funny in small doses, but after hours of the same dang thing over and over and over. I literally yelled out loud “shut up”.
In addition the MC is made to be a side kick, is always a side kick and seems to be lacking anything that makes me want to connect with him. I like almost every other character in the book more than him.
In conclusion this story, world etc has potential but it’s all ruined by the MC

A great litrpg

This book is a great start to what maybe a topshelf litrpg book. I loved the pacing and character development. I also love that it's long and tells a great story without needing 3 books to do that. One of the things I think is a problem with most litrpgs is that they are like dime novels and are short needing multiple books to finish a story ark. That is not the case for this book if you are a fan of "The Land", "Edens Gate", of "Bushido online", than this book is a great read.

Needed Revision

The book starts off pretty strong, but it becomes clear pretty quickly that the book really needed an editor. There are a number of things that are described nearly verbatim multiple times, and the middle of the story seems to have no real direction. On top of that Jason, the main character, is described as a very ordinary guy and for the first part of the book is written that way, but later in the book he becomes a master of social manipulation as well as a moral philosophy professor. Not only does this feel out of place, his preachiness is kind of frustrating. I would warn religious people that the main character is militantly atheist and, although he overcomes that a bit in terms of the in universe gods, he is incredibly rude about really world religion. Overall, I found myself disappointed because the book had a lot of potential, but ends up being an aimless series of stories about a character who seems wildly inconsistent until the end. 2.5/5

No story just shoving morality down you’re throat

Just like the title says no real story line just a guy levelling up and showing his morality down you’re throat. Thinks that his point of view is the best and that everyone should follow it while he himself dose not and makes excuses for his own actions. If you are writing a story as a authors to entertain you’re customer and are passing it as fiction stick to that . Could not finish

6 hours in and nothing is going on. They spent like 2 hours on nothing but debate on essence which could’ve been done in maybe half an hour
