Publisher's Summary

New achievement! Total, utter failure.

You failed a quest less than five minutes after you received it. Now that’s talent.

A floating fortress occupied by warrior gnomes. A castle made of sand. A derelict submarine guarded by malfunctioning machines. A haunted crypt surrounded by lethal traps. 

It was supposed to be easy. One bubble. Four castles. Fifteen days. Capture each one, and the stairwell is unlocked.

Here's the thing. It's never easy. Carl and his team can't go it alone. Not this time. They must rely on the help of the low-level, I-can't-believe-these-idiots-are-still-alive crawlers trapped in the bubble with them. But can they be trusted? 

Welcome, Crawler. Welcome to the fifth floor of the dungeon.

is this fate???

I just finished book 3 an hour ago and was so sad to see 4 wasn't available yet... until I saw it release the moment I refreshed the page. Jeez Matt, and it isn't even my birthday?!

These books are just way too damn fun. great characters, fast paced story, and outstanding narration (I hear those guys are just drowning in... what was it? cats?)

Keep up the great work. Yours truly, donut hole number 683763902


* edit: done book now, still a 5/5 great read :)

The wait finally pays off

Despite audibles best attempts we finally get the next installment of Dungeon Crawler Carl in all its glory.

This is the first time I have left a review and I want to give a special thanks to all the work Jeff Hays did to get this audiobook to us. If only I hadn't seen so many feet pics in the process

Just call me Donut!

So like Princess Donut, I too opened this box before reading the details... 100% worth it. I've never enjoyed listening, as I've always preferred reading. With that said, this series and the voice actors who bring it to life have captivated me every single step of the way. Hell, I joined Patreon just to get the sneak peaks! I've read each book and now have enjoyed the audible versions. Super happy to see The Gate of the Feral Gods out now. Thank you for giving me a series to look forward to and enjoy!

highly recommend this series to all who love great stories about unlikely heroes, overcoming insane situations through unconventional means.

Even with the delays, this was worth the wait.

All Hail the Royal Court of Princess Donut!

Achievement: You have discovered one of the best series available on Audible!

Reward: You are probably going to get written up at work or fired after calling in too many consecutive "sick days" while you binge this title.

Oh.. and Dungeon Crawler Matt: F¥ck that Winnie the Pooh MFer on Goodreads. You just keep churning out masterpiece after masterpiece while he trolls from his mama's basement. We're with you brother.

Did it again

Damn I remember picking up book one and was like ok I’ll give it a try. And I haven’t been able to pass on one since. I love the story and all the characters. Excited for the next book as it seems that there will be more perspectives.

Masterpiece

Do not, I repeat do not listen to negative reviews. They are either paid for by competition or a moron that read this book.

This may be my favorite litrpg audio book I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. This author is genius. I was never bored and could listen for hours on end. The story is thrilling and the narration is flawless. The growth of Carl into what he becomes is step by step. Never is there a point where he does something out of character. Instead you see exactly how the horrors and challenges mold him into what he becomes. I was on the edge of my seat and could listen for hours asking myself "how are they going to get out of this mess?"

If any reviews say it is too complicated to follow, I'm sorry you aren't intelligent enough for this series. Move on. However I was enthralled and able to process this wonder filled story with so many layers, astounded by the scope the author was able to imagine.
Here is a tip for any new audible listeners. Pause the book and process things when something wild or heavy goes down. Talk it out loud. I do this frequently (when I'm alone haha) and it really does help.

Just an amazing read and I cannot wait for the next. Great job. 👍

Jeff Hays is as Awesome as Always

So far I have loved all of the Dungeon Crawler Carl books, this one, I would say, is my least favorite. The story itself is complicated and convoluted, and seems to drag on in places. It was hard to follow at times.

The narrator, Jeff Hays, makes the story enjoyable even when it's confusing. He's doing his best with the story as it's written.
I look forward to the next installment and hope it's a bit less confusing than this one was.

If you haven't read the first three books, I would suggest you start the series with book one as the stories build on each other and the author doesn't spend a lot of time talking about what happened in a previous book.

this series should be the standard for this genre

as litrpg's go this book has it in the right portions, this is book 4 and the characters are not OP, however they are still steadily growing. it spends just enough time talking about stats and skills without the narrator having to read through a spreadsheet which can be tedious. and the information presented is done in an interactive way relative to the character more part of the story.

if you have ever listened to any book read by Jeff hayes, you know the quality of the narration is beyond reproach. he has an amazing range of voices and an awesome ability to give them ALL a life of their own.

now having said all the above, these books are FANTASTIC, Matt Dinniman has an amazing way of slowly presenting just enough details so you can draw your own conclusion without having to spell it out for you.
they are also hilariously wonderful, sometimes subtle sometimes obvious and over the top, but always funny. this book in the series is much heavier at times with some larger and more complex story archs taking place but Matt did it right by pacing it all and mixing in some laughs. I will be listening many times.

Another excellent Dungeon Crawler Carl book

When I started this series, I really expected a stupid super-spoofy comedyesque type book good for a couple of chuckles. It is a bit spoofy and has some LOL moments, but it's also an excellent LitRPG story. Matt Dinniman continues to put out excellent material. If you want a little laugh, a little OMG that is so stupid, and in a LitRPG story without the excessive stat sheet reading, this series is for you. If you are a serious LitRPGer and don't like spoofy stupid material in your stories, this story probably isn't for you. The only major problem is that the title should be Dungeon Crawler Donut, but now I'm just nit picking. ;-p

Oh, I should mention some regular adult language. This is not for kids and you might want to use a headset. It's not excessive, but it's there.

Good but a bit slow paced

I wish there was more than one floor per book, like the two floors of the first books, otherwise that makes the story a bit too slow-paced (will there be 17 books ?).
I'm also more interested by the interactions between the real characters than with their interactions with the NPCs, which seem a little artificial at times, especially during quests.
But overall, a good book and a good ending which really made me want to listen to the next one.
