Publisher's Summary

Large chests are said to encompass all manner of hopes and dreams. Men covet them. Women envy them. But one fact holds true - everyone wants to get their hands on some big ones.

The same holds true for one intrepid adventurer - a strapping young lad by the name of Himmel. Armed with his grandfather's trusty longsword and the dream of being the strongest, he sets out on the journey of a lifetime! It is sure to be a long and dangerous road, fraught with danger! And it all starts with a simple test - reach Level Five in the dungeon called the "newbie zone" and earn the right to become a full-fledged adventurer!

However, such things get hopelessly derailed when his adolescent mind beholds an exposed chest for the first time - a fateful meeting that would inevitably lead his life in a direction he never even dreamed of!

Content warning: Gore, violence, explicit sexual scenes

Everybody Loves Large Chests was first brought to Jeff Hays on Soundbooth Theater Live, his live streaming narration show. Since then, it has been the most consistently requested and enjoyed title by fans. So much so, that Neven Iliev finally decided to approach us to put out a full audio version of the first arc in Boxxy's adventures!

Really Entertaining

This is a very different take on LitRPG! If you're expecting a traditional story about a gamer that gets sucked into a VRMMORPG and works to level up, this is not that type of book. It doesn't really have a traditional story structure or an antagonist. It's just a bawdy tale about a monster's adventures in a world that happens to operate with the same mechanics as a game.

What this book did have was humor, and plenty of it. It was a really entertaining and fun read. The characters were hilarious, and had me snort laughing out loud. The story flowed right along, the main character was unexpected, and the whole thing was well-written. Ugh, I resisted hard, but yes, I'll say it. This book was tasty.

Jeff Hays' performance was outstanding, it really suited the book. He had great comedic timing and just delivered those deadpan lines perfectly. He performed different voices for each character, including female voices, and there were some awesome sound effects. It just brought the whole thing up a notch, the book would have been a fun read, but the narration made it a hilarious listen.

Although I loved most of it, I wouldn't recommend reading this book if you're easily offended. It spends a lot of time satirizing women (God I hope it's satire). I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Not what I expected, but great "RPG" fun

I don't think the Audible book description quite fits, but if you've ever played an RPG video game WoW or D&D this story is a great twist on some classic tropes of the genre. No, this is not some high level thought provoking fiction. It's a fun witty and entertaining story masterfully performed. I agree with some reviewers that the material is a bit juvenile, but that's what makes it so fun. Ever wonder what it would be like to live in one of the campaign worlds from any of the great RPG games? What about the lives of the monsters you always fight? Then read/listen to this book and prepare to laugh aloud while also feeling oddly connected to the most unique anti hero I've come across in some time.

The Chest... It Calls To You...

I absolutely loved this book. I listened to the audio, and the performance was spot-on. I expected no less from Jeff Hays, and boy does he have a great time reading this interesting and funny tale.

The story revolves around a Mimic who makes a living by picking off intruders to his lair. Sooner or later, the Mimic ends up leveling up and gaining experience, at which point it becomes restless and seeks out some adventure.

The characters were hilarious at times - just don't get too connected to any of them, if you know what I mean. Especially early on. Coming from a group that loves D&D and many RPGs, this story has plenty of laughs and is an interesting viewpoint. Great world-building and description. I hope there will be more books from Neven Iliev!

Not comedy

I was trying to find a funny book to listen to. This ended up not being super funny but definitely entertaining. A little graphic at times. Overall pretty good.

Absolutely Ridiculously Hillarious

I cannot begin to explain just how stupidly funny this book is to me. After many years of MMOs and Dungeons and Dragons, theres no end to witty jokes and pseudo puns about those experiences. Its very lewd but then again as a person of the internet i'm used to it.

Highly recommend this adventure. Its well thought out, the little extra sound effects are great and personally i think this is a hidden gem.

10/10 - IGN

Great idea with often too much sexualization

I personally enjoyed the book, but at many points, I felt like the author was more sexually repressed teenager and less D&D/LitRPG fan with a great idea. There were several parts of the book that were very highly sexualized for no reason other than the author's own gratification. Once you get past all of that, however, you find a great idea of a book that is largely well written. The idea that you read a book from a dungeon monster's perspective and find all the random ways that it got insanely lucky and progresses both mentally and physically.

If you can get past the borderline erotica, and you are a D&D fan or a LitRPG fan, then you will love this book. I am genuinely intrigued and excited to read the next book.

Silly, funny and hard to put down

This is the first LitRPG that was written to be purposefully silly. They did a good job, I was tired of the "same old"..

Great mix of dark comedy & litrpg

From the cover and book title, was't expecting the humor to be so dark, but even so this was very entertaining. The "main character" is very different then most I've read in the litrpg genre, making it very fresh (the closest main chars to this being stores based around dungeon cores to similar outlooks). It is definitely worth a listen, but be prepared for a helping helping of gore with the dark humor.

Note: I received this audio-book free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher.

don't let your children read this

if you like South Park Beavis and Butthead then you'll like this but just like those two shows children should not be reading this this is extremely sexual and it's the sort of thing that could end up causing a rating system to evolve on Audible or even Amazon

Gratuitous violence and hilarious dialogue. Morningwood is a surprisingly captivating read regardless of its unexpected subject matter and unusual style.

Funny

Well worth the time. An unusual take on the normal rpg story that has funny moments through out. Expect a very different story to normal and enjoy the surprises. Looking forward to the next
