The Second Realm  audiobook cover art

Enjoyable, but "simple"

I'm enjoying the story with it's game like world and magic system, but these books seem to revolve around the god damn word "simple". Practically every other thing is described as either "simple" or "not simple". Come on, there would be myriad of other adjectives and ways that could be used to describe most of the scenes and objects, and that's the only one the author could come up with? Other than that, it's been a funny and decent LitRPG series.

Here's hoping that the author widens his vocabulary a bit in the future.

Full of lines and scenes that were basically straight from all the virgin neck-beard nice-guy stereotype memes you could imagine. Did not enjoy all that much.

Full of uninteresting pop culture references, some better placed than others. There is so much of it, that it ruins the whole book for me.

The story is like any other reborn-in-another-world, or "isekai" power fantasy with some it's own flawor.

Can't really put my finger on the reason why I enjoys this series so much, but keep them coming!

Really enjoy how the kinda classic "hero chosen by the gods" is turned upside down with these books. Love the concept of keepers and the mystery of why the system is the way it is.

Keep up the good work!

Interesting world with excellent writing when telling about the world, its inhabitants and events, simply love it. Would love to listen/read more in that style. That being said, I'm really not a fan of all the generally overused anime tropes though.

the over-arching story is interesting enough to keep me listening but the main character is dumb as a boot sometimes and it gets annoying at times.

The first book sucked me into it completely. The way the world of magic was established and described was so compelling that I couldn't get enough of it.

Second and third books kinda went in weird direction with some of the references and jokes but they still kept me engaged in the main story.

The last book nailed it. Everything made sense to me and I'm wholly satisfied.

Overall: 4,5/5, great series.
