Pointless

The story is pointless in this one. Honestly I struggled to get through this one. The narrator was the only thing that saves this book.

Best series in the world!

Love it to death. Read every book and am now listening through the series again on audible. The most real, believable, imaginative, and legitimately funny litrpg out there. Thanks for the story

the worst of the chaos seeds series

I hated writing this review, the last 4 books were a solid 5 stars. This book lacked basic plot, point, or even a climax. it ends as awkwardly as it started and could be been cut front he entire series and not made a difference. I recommend skipping this one.

Only one negative thing.

I love the book and narration - however I feel like it should be edited for audio to cut out some of the repetition in item and monster descriptions.

Great addition to the series

So I am on my second go through and their is so much more to the story that I missed on my first go through. I have read all 7 of the books and listened to them (Mostly twice now). I know some people complain about the prompts but I love that type of info. It makes the book feel more real. For anyone considering this series: The Mc acts like a real person. He will do good and bad things. Some things people consider cruel (My brother and I got in to a discussion about that). Here is the thing I can’t say I’d do any less in his position. I mean honestly he is. A much nicer person than I would be in that situation. Con: here is the only reason it did not make 5 stars. While I love prompts the description of the goblins was a bit tedious when it kept repeating racial facts. That would be my only real suggestion to skip over.

Gnomes Rule

Another beautifully told story of adventure and leveling up in the land. My only issues were that some of the prompts and level building can seem tedious. There were a couple of lengthy in depth descriptions that I zoned out during. Overall the level of complexity that Aleron is constructing with each story is phenomenal.

Not that great

When the story is being told its great but endless reading of stats is just too much. Objectifying every woman he introduces is old. I'm moving on to something else.

The saga continues with gusto!

Richter, Randolphus, Scion, Fueton, and of course Alma continue to contribute to the growth of Misty Village. The Pixies and Sprites have sworn fealty to Richter thus increasing Richter’s power, affinity, and military strength to some degree. Richter has been lovingly described as the sword carrying, magic wielding, master of a place of power. I have also named him King of Idioms. Richter is constantly busy grinding his limitless attributes, skills, and spells. His latest favorites are smithing, enchanting, patrolling, building, and scribing. The saga continues with gusto!

Moving way too slow

This series sets up lots of enemies and setpieces that haven't been resolved by the end of the fifth book. With only two left, I cannot imagine this series is going to have anything resembling a satisfying conclusion. There are just so many hanging threads that should have been tied up now. It doesn't help that the MC develops really slowly. The plot seems to suggest that he should be formidable by now, but his settlement is small and he himself is super wimpy. Winning by luck isn't that satisfying to read. I get that combat needs tension but most people don't almost lose literally every fight they've been in. Every fight is identical: Start doing some damage->enemy not that bothered-> enemy does damage, MC almost dies->plot armor saves the day. Also, author has a torture fetish. Best to keep that in mind since you'll see a lot of it.

The books have devolved completely at this point.

Within the first 5 chapters of the story, AT LEAST an hour of the book is just reading stats of items, talents and skill descriptions. It's been steadily getting worse with easy book but at this point I'm almost ready to just delete the rest of the series. I wish I hadn't bought all of these books.

Book 5 felt tedious.

The story continues to be just okay. The leveling was even starting to get boring. I honestly don't think I will finish the series....5 books of this continued and drawn out story is enough.

Best series I've read all year!

My son introduced me to this book and I picked up the audiobook for a long work commute. The narrator is probably the best I've ever heard. The book itself is a combination of Piers anthony punny humor, world building, and a dude encountering a plethora of "oh crap" situations. I've read the series twice and don't plan on stopping. Well worth the time/cost.
