Description

Selected as one of Audible's best audiobooks of 2021  

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..

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.

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

If only I could give it more stars

Out of the 85 titles I have listened to this is heads and tales the best audiobook. Amazing attention to voices by the narrator. Riveting for beginning to end. Love it the most <3 Thanks you Shirtaloon and Heath Miller! Too much fun.

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.

Good voice acting, childish writing

The main character is essentially a self insert power trip for the writer. Perfect at everything, loved by everyone of note and super freaking edgy. If you enjoy powertrips and are below the age of 16-18 you'll love this. if not stay clear.

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.

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

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

Insufferable protagonist

I am dumfounded by the ratings this book has received, so I am adding this paragraph to explain my rating. To me, a 5 star is a book like Game of Thrones or The Way of Kings. I have no idea how these people are giving this book a 5 star review. I'd be curious to see if they'd give Game of Thrones or The Way of Kings 10 stars out of 5. If you haven't read the Stormlight Archive, get that instead, you will not regret it.

The MC is a smug, self righteous and irritating.
From the very first chapter everything falls into the MC's lap. He doesn't have to work for anything, has no challenges to overcome, and never fails.
He doesn't achieve anything, good things just happen to him. From getting some power up items after killing two big baddies with almost no effort, to being captured just to wind up in prison for the sole purpose of meeting powerful allies, whom he saves.
At one point after only being in this new world for only a few months, he beats 5 seasoned fighters who've trained their entire lives in a training duel. Everyone likes him for no reason, and we're told every likes him, but we're not shown this amazing charm that immediately wins people over. Even his companions point out that it's strange how everyone likes him. Even people that should dislike him inexplicably like him. There's a conversation where another character tells the MC that she doesn't like what he's doing, he responds by saying, "yes you do" and shockingly she smiles and says, "yes I do". The daughter of an noble who hated him in the beginning for humiliating her bother somehow ends up with him. I thought I skipped a chapter, but no. He goes home and she's there.
That's the other thing the real villain of this story is wealth and social status. The MC has no problem telling the inhabitants of this new world how their world is unjust and unfair at every single opportunity he gets. This is a direct quote from the protagonist....
"I'm not sure I can be around that much wealth inequality without going into a socialist rant."
The entire books is peppered with similar gems. Inexplicably all his new allies are rich and powerful, the very things he hates. He himself is rich, granted he didn't earn his money, he took it from an enemy he killed at the very beginning of the story. He's such an enlightened socialist that he doesn't think twice about giving his wealth (that he didn't earn) to a medical clinic because he doesn't need it.
He's also an arrogant atheist despite the fact that there are living gods walking around the world. At one point a god appears in a market and everyone kneels except for him. He just gives a "what's up" head nod, and the god smiles!!
Everything goes his way with little or no effort on his part. EVERYTHING.
As far as the story, I can't even tell you what or who the main villain is. Half this book could have been cut out. There was a side story of a female fighter that I was more interested in than the main story.
This is a hard pass.

Mundain and Preachy

This book could have been so great if the author didn't feel the need to force in their personal views on Atheism, "Privilege", social standing, etc. Really didn't add much value, and I found myself multitasking through these parts to get to the action/development parts of the book which the author did do well.

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.

MC is a moron

Can someone please explain this horrible trend in making protagonists stupid? the story is fine, and I could get past the immature dialogue and juvenile vibe.... but what I can't get past is how unbelievably stupid the MC is. Stories like this should have thier own genre... stupid beta male protagonists are the worst trope hands down.

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
