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.

Fantastic, hilarious NSFW series.

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. :)

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.

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.

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.

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.

Don’t judge a book by its cover

The cover of the book and the title were just enough to catch my eye. The synopsis was vague enough to give me a glimpse of familiarity and the 11 credits had to go somewhere. “Might as well, Can’t dance”.

The story is unique, quirky, and for anyone who ever played pen and paper RPG especially a GM (if your brain put in General Manager, quit reading now) .

It will be a story I will listen to again, and with 6 credits still looming I might have to try book 2.

hard to swallow ;) but entertaining

Have you ever listened to one of those books or watched a movie where you listened to the main bad guy, then found yourself low key agreeing with him. Then you start rooting for the bad guys in a weird way.... well this is the exact opposite of that. The main character is a monster with no sense of morality and very little attachment to others. Most of the time your actually kind of hoping someone kills it. People mercilessly die around the MC. So if you have ever played the game grand theft auto and have gone on murderous rampages for amusement, put yourself in that mindset.

Besides the obvious way you can not identify with the main character, this book is extremely entertaining in a perverse kind of way. Honestly dont be discouraged from listening to it. Just brace yourself for a touch of inner turmoil when the MC literally eats a character you may have ended up liking.

Oh and if your wondering if the MC is ever less.. umm stupid eventually it picks up a few brain cells. So if your bothered by its intelligence level just hold on a little. Its just gotta level...alot

Silly, funny and hard to put down

This is the first LitRPG that was written to be purposefully silly. They did a good job, I was tired of the "same old"..

Great mix of dark comedy & litrpg

From the cover and book title, was't expecting the humor to be so dark, but even so this was very entertaining. The "main character" is very different then most I've read in the litrpg genre, making it very fresh (the closest main chars to this being stores based around dungeon cores to similar outlooks). It is definitely worth a listen, but be prepared for a helping helping of gore with the dark humor.

Note: I received this audio-book free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher.

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.

Fun and Lighthearted Read

Morningwood takes you on a lighthearted adventure, with a very deliberate attempt to not take itself too serious. It also has a very fresh take with the protagonist, probably unlike what you have seen before. I also wouldn't be scared away by the references of sexual content. There is a lot of suggestive wording, but the actual sexual content is only occasional and over very quickly.

Jeff Hayes narrates this and continues to be fantastic. Everything he and Soundbooth Theater does is a cut above. Jeff is, hands down, my favorite narrator.

Story is really fun. But doesn't need the ludeness

The story is great, but I don't need the vivid detail about west the witch is doing to herself. Paint a better picture with imagery instead
