The humor is like when someone that isn't funny tries really hard to be funny using outdated memes.
I really, really don't get what people see in this book.(less)
More lists with this book...
I'm in heaven.
Okay, I've been reading LitRPG novels for some time now and I've loved them ever since I first turned on the TV back in the 80's. Do you remember that old Dungeons and Dragons cartoon? Yeah. That one. Let's get transported away into ...more
I guess the story was supposed to be about an inexperienced and careless character who gradually grows into a wise ruler, but damn. The protagonist not only has a rather annoying personality and impulsive behaviour, he also makes one stupid mistake after another and very often doesn’t learn anything from his mistakes, repeating the same ones over and over again. Worse than that, the universe often ...more
The book is simply a lot of fun, had I started reading in a weekend I might have marathon through it. As it is I think I went to fast wish I could go straight to book 2 in the series but my promise to not do that because I like switching genres ...more
Indeed, meet the moron Richter who most likely failed primary school and is now at the age 24 in another world. Recommended for readers between age 10-15.
Why the writer didn't place the MC in the age bracket of 14-16 I will never know. It would have been the perfect excuse for the characters ignorance. ...more
I was lucky enough to happen upon this through a free promotion (I don't remember which one as I signed up for many) but I was pleasantly surprised.
I love fantasy and world-building and the added concept of leveling up and the game mechanics made it more enjoyable. When I was young I would play these games all the time and get lost in them for days. Although I may come back to them time again when I'm older, I find reading a ...more
When I heard "father of LitRPG" and some of the other things I've heard about the author I was a bit skeptical. I read the free sample. Still skeptical. When I saw a promo in the back of another fantastic (but too short) series, Divine Dungeon, and that this book happened to be free that day (July 1st, 2017), I figured "what the hell? What have I got to lose?"
I need to stop being such a cynic sometimes...
This book was AMAZING. Great flow, great humor, lots of fun references (love ...more
So I might have started reading with too high expectations, yes. But then, I might also have not as this is far from my first Litrpg ride and there are lots of okay to very enjoyable books out there.
Sadly, this wasn't one of them to me.
The reason is simple: While the setting with the gods and the game is in ...more
So the biggest flaws:
Protagonist is immortal and limitless (not spoilers since you find that out in the first couple chapters), so author makes it clear that his protagonist will be Mary-Sue, there's no tension that something bad will happen to him si ...more
Looking forward to more in this series, WI ...more
My biggest turnoff was that the main character simply wasn't likeable (or hate-able for that matter). He was juvenile and flat, a noob-hating, immature 11-year-old, passed off as a 20-something gamer with no real back story, connections, motivations, or drive.
The humor was constant and c ...more
Audiobook: I haven't listened to much by Nick Podehl, but I've always considered him a great narrator. This book is no different. He speaks clearly with good volume and inflection and does a variety of voices that make for an excellent audiobook.
I do however have some reservations. One of the drawbacks to Unabridged can be that some text is meant to be scanned/skimmed in a book, but must be read its entirety for the audio version. ...more
Nostalgia does not begin to explain my feelings. There I was reading a novel and then bang I am experiencing an adventure. Thank-you for the amazing work that brought back to life the very books / games and just overall childhood memories. I will be gifting this work to my close friends as I am sure they will enjoy it, love it, build fond memories with it.
Obviously, if you don't have a history with gaming, this book probably won't really resonate with you. The gaming part is the appeal, and it's what I'm here for. I love the LitRPG genre. The stats and optimizing are nice, the progressio ...more
Can Richter forge allegiances to survive this harsh and unforgiving world or will he fall to the dark denizens of this ancient and unforgiving realm?
I'm giving up on this one. I'm almost halfway through and it isn't so ...more
And, this is a fun read. I finished it some time ago but just haven't gotten around to reviewing it.
So what have we got here? (as they say) Our hero (such as he is) is a high level (very high level) player in an extremely popular MMORPG. During a rare quest (that very few players had ever heard of much less found) he comes ...more
I was hesitant to buy the 2nd book in this series because of the high price tag, but now I'm just going to throw my money at ...more
I have been reading sci-fi and fantasy for basically thirty years. In the past year I am honored and blessed to have earned the title "The Father of American LitRPG"
My primary goal was, and still remains, to write a story that I would like to read.
Peace, love and the perfect margarita!
