Publisher's Summary

For John, death was merely the beginning.

After saying goodbye to his life on earth, he never expected to find a brand new world still awaiting for him.

One where immortals flew through the clouds and ancient evils hid below the surface.

One where fables, myths, and legends filled every corner.

One where he could finally start anew.

Now, however, John is about to learn a valuable lesson, for any place humanity rules will always be the same - a domain where sin and ambition can only be tamed by power.

Will he have the strength to walk this road on his own or will he be unable to heal the old wounds hidden deep within his heart?

Find out by listening to The Idle System

This book contains a story of self-discovery, ambition, and revenge. Inspired by classical LitRPG and Xianxia, it's a new take on the genres. Containing romance without harem elements, The Idle System isn't a novel for the weak of heart, but one for those enamored with planetary-levels of destruction. If the aforementioned tropes are to your taste, don't hesitate to buy this bundle.

This volume contains the first four novels in The Idle System series: The New Journey, The Rogues, The Birth and The Sins, all of which are available separately.

Much better than the title might suggest

If you're hesitating because you think this will be all about the "idle system" or that he'll just be sitting around doing stuff on his system, don't worry. The isle system is just a part of this story. A big part, sure, but there's a genuine and impressive storyline. It's not just about letting the system do stuff.

Psychopathic protagonist

The protagonist is a psychopathic internet "nice guy" drunk with power and without any understanding of emotion. The math is bad, killing hundreds of thousands of monsters in a two-year grind, or reading trillions of maps at a few seconds each is still going to take eons. There is never a sense of danger, characters are bland remaining 1 dimensional and don't stick around for long. He slaughters millions of common humans without a second thought because they're "bad", then gets up on a high horse about defending individuals.

Most recently where I'm at, he needed to knock out the love interest for what basically equates to surgery. Before doing so, he assures her he won't do anything with her unconscious body. This is after he's been kissing and flirting hardcore during training sessions, and making a point to confirm they're both virgins. Creepy as heck. While passed out, he comes to the realization that he "loves her".

I do not regret this purchase because it's a lot for one credit, and the logic and storytelling is hilarious. The narrator is -ok- a few pronunciation errors like pronouncing misCellaneous with a hard C, and a mechanical drone to his voice. The whole thing is a nightmare fever-dream of weaboo power creep, so there's never a dull moment.

Definitely one of the best book series ever

I read this whole series in a weekend. I could hardly put the book down and the LitRPG aspect of the book was awesome. The only qualm I have with this Series is that there is not more

A top game immersion series.

I found that I really enjoyed the way the story line has opened up and expanded. Instead of sticking to one small area, the author has moved the story from an unexpected start ( a middle aged man dying from a heart attack) to a whole new way at looking at the universe ( the other side of the other side of the universe). All the while it's easy to follow, the story makes sense, the plot feels believable. Makes me wish I could have the option to have a restart system.

He made an excuse why his MC was not OP

I have been struggling to finish this book from the very first book. The thing that broke the camel's back for me. it was when the author had to make an excuse. For why his character wasn't overpowered in his universe. I'm fine with overpowered characters but when you feel the need to defend your character. that should be a sign that there's something wrong with your writing.

rushed story

couldn't finish it.
whenever something remotely interesting was brought up it was rushed through. details in the book are far too brief. the story itself is ok, the main point I dont like is the main character is able to go through "challenges" without any issue and when something comes up that should be difficult he just powers up and wins.

honestly a interesting idea, bad implementation

A great buy, 4 stories for the price of 1 credit

Not very, but it sure does help if you put in the effort while you wait to gain it with the Idle System. Pegaz takes inspiration from the common tropes and mechanisms of the idle games a lot of people play. While that sounds simple, the way they've weaved them into the story without making it boring is pretty skilled. I originally started reading / listening to book 1 unsure how to feel about an idle game system. However i was enthralled by everything John has to go through to gain power. Granted he didn't HAVE to do those things, but he chose to make the best use of his time. Which is extra funny when your entire story revolves around "time passing = power gained" . Book 2 sees the continuation after John reaches the age of 21 and can finally ascend into immortality. After the events of book 1 i wasn't expecting any romance in the story and i was right not to. He is rather selfish in his pursuit of power, and to make the best use of his time he joins a sect of assassins. His masterful use of his system once more comes into play as he figures out how to give himself the best of everything. Book 3 continues from when John runs into an annoying woman, and suddenly my earlier beliefs get thrown out the window! But that's ok, because it's not the overdone cliches that i'm already tired of. Book 4 shows us insanity, pure insanity in the pursuit of help for someone else. Pegaz did a wonderful job keeping me guessing in most of these books, and I look forward to the next 4 books!
