Amazing read

The story ended kind of abruptly but otherwise I love it. The characters are deep and well-thought-out. The voicing is spot on and it's almost impossible to not hang off of every word. And it's not overly serious like some books.

Great guilty pleasure

Trope filled, self insert fun at it's best or worst (if this isn't your thing). It feels like it fits right along side all the isekai anime that have been flooding the market over the last few years.

The narration was fantastic in my opinion. love the fact it was a duel cast. I usually don't mind when it's only a single person but when you have someone doing the male voices and someone else doing the female ones it makes a world of difference.

Only gave the story 3 stars because it's unoriginal and a but short for my liking. while not poorly written it definitely isn't going to be for everyone. Has monster girl, harem and polygamy themes, especially closer to the end of this first book and am assuming it only ramps up from this point.

not good

I didn't care about the MC or any I'd the other characters. honestly all this book was good for was background noise while I drove to work. would not buy again.

I am giving a good review, however...

I liked the premise of the story. It felt a little short, but it did deliver the feeling it promised on the description. Narration was excellent to the point that I wasn't really even thinking about the narrators, as I usually do, but just enjoyed the story they were telling.

Somehow I do feel like something was lacking from the story. Maybe it's my preference on overpowered main characters, but it felt like the mc wasn't using his power nearly enough. I guess you could have different rules explaining this behaviour or saying some character attributes or personal failings with the mc caused this. I personally had a million different ideas on how he could use his power in the wilds or even just experiment with it.

I like the fact that the mc was written in a way that prevents him from showing of his powers too much, but I wish that when he can, he would be more... awesome(?). The title gave the feeling of an op caster, but so far the feeling I have of the mc is of an unimaginative confused kid who is just going with the motions and somehow has no idea how magic could maybe be used (no games, no fantasy books, no fantasy movies? where did this kid live?)

I like the archer, although her constant "anger" at things seems a bit unexplained. Hopefully further stories will expand on this more than just "she lost tom".
The biggest lost opportunity is that the healer seems an empty shell of a mary sue. Only existing to fill out the needs of the mc. No real devotion to gods is really shown in actions, only in words and she accepted easily the fact the her wish for help in the form of a mage came true, but then was surprised the god came to say hi. Also, why would the god care? The healer doesn't seem that devout... maybe in the next book we will learn.
I do enjoy the orc dude with two shield and the agenda of showing the world that orc can be kind and civilized by bashing peoples heads in with two shield! I do wish he also had more interesting things like fun hobbies such as poetry or knowledge of history or cooking or something fancy. Just to give him more character.

To summarize. It was good, but too short to make anything that happened matter to the reader. The book does not stand well alone and clearly needs more "episodes". It feels like the first part of a cheap tv series. I want to love it, but so far I just think it's good.

I am going to give the second book a chance. But with so many great books out there, some of which the same author wrote, "good" just doesn't cut it anymore.

Just like an anime

I watch a lot of anime, This is EXACTLY like a isekai from the isekai boom. This is not bad. Infact, its quite amazing to find a non manga that is a isekai.

Actually quite good

The story is both interesting and engaging. The characters show some depth, which can often be lacking in these types of books. It’s not going to win any awards, but it is quite a fun listen.

A good book but

Honestly I enjoy the book a lot, though I will admit I was/am debating on it being a 3 star.

I like the characters, the world sounds interesting though I think we need more details to flush it out. Same with the magic in like how there is healers,elemantists and a few other types though I hope each are explored a bit further.
I also hope the main character continues as is, he is powerful I just hope it doesn't to go to far.

my main issue really is how fast things developed, yes it's a shorter book which is fine. but how quickly some events happened felt a bit off. The reason i bumped it to four stars is because none of the events are to major this time so I felt it was a good starter book.

I look forward to continue listening to more of this series.

Book unfortunately fell flat.

I have read and listened to other books by the author and have enjoyed them. However this book was very boring to me and had difficulty remaining interested. The narrator was great but he couldn’t bring me into this story. I will try book two to see if it improves though. This is my opinion only and I encourage others to decide for themselves.

Slow and predictable

The story is just so slow, bogged down in useless and repetitive information. By the time the story does move along, there isn’t really any anticipation left. A lot of the content and plot points and juvenile, things you expect from a Saturday morning cartoon or Kodomomuke. There are a few more mature moments but overall it’s a mixed bag.

I’m constantly thinking to my self “No duh” every time the MC has some genius thought. Definitely not a book you will think about later and need to reread to see if you missed somthing.

Narration was really great, some of the editing was a little off between the male and female voices causing overlap. Also, sometimes the tones of each voice didn’t match the tone of the overall conversation.

Slow

When the book begins it just kind of thrust you in and there's no real Character development until about halfway through the book. Otherwise it's a great book
