10 out of 10 Tavia Gilbert as always is amazing

all I can say is that it's an excellent start to a series and that Tavia Gilbert and Jeff Hayes have to get together and make narrator babies

Good book, but author has great talent.

Author has a great quality of work. The plot line went ok and story was well thought out. I just felt like the author could do even better with an old school rpg style. Not this mass battles but with one on one Rpg. There the Author could truly shine.

However I do believe the next book moves in to that.

This review was left in turn for a free copy of this book.

Fake it tell you make it.

This book is the epitome of this phrase. Honestly, this book is kinda a one treck pony, and I guessed a key point of the ending well in advance. I'll give it points for its original take on a litRPG. I also appreciate that not only did it get straight to business with the intro, but also that they're very little Stat readings. Some litRPG's get bogged down with this, and pull you from immersion of the moment at times.

It is entertaining for a while, but I find myself dreading Dan's perspective since he's often calling people cowards, or manipulative. Even though everyone else practically idolizes him. The constant misunderstanding gets grating after a while. Especially when you realize that's all the book is. If I had to describe it, I would say, it's a sitcom marathon where none of the issues are resolved, but all the other characters besides the main one THINK they are, while the MC barrels head first into the next problem with barely a shread of a plan. Over, and over, and over and over again.

He's not getting by on skill it's like.. Ok think of it this way. If you trained your whole life to complete against others that were trained to a similar standard, then as a professional, it's common sence you do things a certain way. Most efficient path, best lines of sight, ext. Now drop a casual player into the mix. Utter chaos. Instead of actual plans and forethought, this guy bulldozes any plan counting on an enemy that has the same way of thinking. That's the entire premise of the book.

What if, we dropped a newbe with no training into MLG under the false assumption he knew what he was doing?

While the idea was funny, I couldn't help but feel tired of it after awhile.

Never Ascribe To Malice...

...that which is adequately explained by incompetence. The ultimate moral of the story, here we have a perfect example of the old lesson. Our champion succeeds through a mix of making the right decisions for the totally wrong reasons and dumb luck, but it's the actions of his opponents that really cement this by not following this rule. And what's most entertaining about the book.

Story is Worse than GOT Ending

The book is nearly impossible to listen to by the end. Main character is so dumb that he never actually achieves anything. Yet Every move works out at maximum positive results. He thinks he’s acting outside the box at the start, and makes a glass canon character. The other characters think he’s amazing and a brilliant genius.,,., it’s all luck.... WORST BOOK I HAVE EVER HEARD..... worse then GOT ending

a pretty awesome litrpg

I really enjoyed this litrpg it didn't bog it self down with tons of bloat just giving you the ability and how it worked when it is learned. so if you prefer your litrpg a bit lighter to keep the action flowing this is for you.
the only complaint I have is the mc not noticing people's real reactions to him as well as feeling a bit over lucky in a few spots. honestly though he was enjoyable even still.

Unique Lit RPG

Funny and interesting with a great balance between character development, fighting, humor, and relationships. I cannot wait for the other books to be converted to english.

It's great but not like the land dont get invested

So let me start off by saying it's a good book I like it but everyone is singing it's praise or being I'd like to give a brief review of it all from both a neutral perspective I get where people are coming from he doesn't plan anything that gets some people mad so this book isn't gonna be like the land or the iron druid where your invested in the characters don't think about the choices to much because the protagonist isn't either it's a one off book really give it a shot though
