Description

Large chests are said to encompass all manner of hopes and dreams. Men covet them. Women envy them. But one fact holds true - everyone wants to get their hands on some big ones.

The same holds true for one intrepid adventurer - a strapping young lad by the name of Himmel. Armed with his grandfather's trusty longsword and the dream of being the strongest, he sets out on the journey of a lifetime! It is sure to be a long and dangerous road, fraught with danger! And it all starts with a simple test - reach Level Five in the dungeon called the "newbie zone" and earn the right to become a full-fledged adventurer!

However, such things get hopelessly derailed when his adolescent mind beholds an exposed chest for the first time - a fateful meeting that would inevitably lead his life in a direction he never even dreamed of!

Content warning: Gore, violence, explicit sexual scenes

Everybody Loves Large Chests was first brought to Jeff Hays on Soundbooth Theater Live, his live streaming narration show. Since then, it has been the most consistently requested and enjoyed title by fans. So much so, that Neven Iliev finally decided to approach us to put out a full audio version of the first arc in Boxxy's adventures!

Yes, yes, yes!

My favourite series on Royal Road, and now it’s on audible, yes!!!
The story of a basic monster that managed to get absurdly lucky and level up enough to think, move, and get ambitious. (A mimic wanting to go out and find treasure, and food to eat, is very ambitious for a box meant to wait around and try to eat people).
The main character, is not human, never was human, and will never be human. He’s evil, but more in a ‘why wouldn’t I kill someone and eat them?’ Kind of way than the ‘rape and torture’ kind of way. Not that he wouldn’t rape and torture if he thought it would work, but he’s more likely to just eat someone if they’re stubborn and go out and find a different way of getting what he wants instead of wasting his time, doing things that aren’t eating or getting more shiny things.
Don’t listen to this if you can’t stomach rooting for the good guys, explicit content, or any LitRPG, or if you can’t handle masochism . This has got a lot of it. And we haven’t gotten to the part where things get really explicit in this book, that’ll be the next one.
Do read this if you like dark humor, blood, prat falls, explicit content, and lots of details about spells, skills, and stats. Oh, and rooting for the underdog. Remember the main character is a box with an appetite, he does not start off with a lot of brains. Just luck and being underestimated.
The narrator is quite good, and while there are some sound effects, they aren’t too intrusive. I highly recommend this as one of the best LitRPGs around.

decent book for d&d fans

I enjoyed listening to this book. It's not funny like other people suggested (I was expecting something like the Caverns and Creatures series). I feel like it would have benefited from less (or no) porn. It didn't really bother me but it was cringy and completely unnecessary. Otherwise the storyline was nice.
Great naration.

very funny

loved it, would recommend without hesitation.
the story is refreshing in the over-unsed theme of fantasy game (DnD genre)

weak!

Too little humour, too much of author's repressed sexuality pouring out uncontrollably. The plot is childish with no real depth. I struggled with two thirds of the book waiting for the interesting to start, but finally gave up.

odd indeed.

I found it difficult for myself to enjoy a story where the "protagonist" has zero personality.
Wilson in Cast Away had more personality.
Will I purchase the next in the series?
Yeah, like Boxy's succubus, I shamefully enjoy torture.

Not what I expected, but great "RPG" fun

I don't think the Audible book description quite fits, but if you've ever played an RPG video game WoW or D&D this story is a great twist on some classic tropes of the genre. No, this is not some high level thought provoking fiction. It's a fun witty and entertaining story masterfully performed. I agree with some reviewers that the material is a bit juvenile, but that's what makes it so fun. Ever wonder what it would be like to live in one of the campaign worlds from any of the great RPG games? What about the lives of the monsters you always fight? Then read/listen to this book and prepare to laugh aloud while also feeling oddly connected to the most unique anti hero I've come across in some time.

Really Entertaining

This is a very different take on LitRPG! If you're expecting a traditional story about a gamer that gets sucked into a VRMMORPG and works to level up, this is not that type of book. It doesn't really have a traditional story structure or an antagonist. It's just a bawdy tale about a monster's adventures in a world that happens to operate with the same mechanics as a game.

What this book did have was humor, and plenty of it. It was a really entertaining and fun read. The characters were hilarious, and had me snort laughing out loud. The story flowed right along, the main character was unexpected, and the whole thing was well-written. Ugh, I resisted hard, but yes, I'll say it. This book was tasty.

Jeff Hays' performance was outstanding, it really suited the book. He had great comedic timing and just delivered those deadpan lines perfectly. He performed different voices for each character, including female voices, and there were some awesome sound effects. It just brought the whole thing up a notch, the book would have been a fun read, but the narration made it a hilarious listen.

Although I loved most of it, I wouldn't recommend reading this book if you're easily offended. It spends a lot of time satirizing women (God I hope it's satire). I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Now I've got wood!!

What a great fantasy piece. It throws away conventional format, and gives you the POV of a lowly dungeon monster. Boxy's journey from a weak monster into a city class threat is amazingly funny, and you will not be sorry for the read. I'm just sorry that there aren't any other novels out in this series yet. ------------ AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY

didn't live up to the comments hype.

I purchase this book based off of user comments and Jeff Hayes. Jeff Hayes did his usual impeccable job. truly is a talent. the comments on the other hand I feel were well off of mark. virtually everybody stating they couldn't hardly contain their laughter because this book was so funny. it was clever in a few areas, and a decent story overall. but it is not an overly funny book.

Not comedy

I was trying to find a funny book to listen to. This ended up not being super funny but definitely entertaining. A little graphic at times. Overall pretty good.

The Chest... It Calls To You...

I absolutely loved this book. I listened to the audio, and the performance was spot-on. I expected no less from Jeff Hays, and boy does he have a great time reading this interesting and funny tale.

The story revolves around a Mimic who makes a living by picking off intruders to his lair. Sooner or later, the Mimic ends up leveling up and gaining experience, at which point it becomes restless and seeks out some adventure.

The characters were hilarious at times - just don't get too connected to any of them, if you know what I mean. Especially early on. Coming from a group that loves D&D and many RPGs, this story has plenty of laughs and is an interesting viewpoint. Great world-building and description. I hope there will be more books from Neven Iliev!

There is too much emphasis on stats, and a lack of resolution leaves you wanting.
