Just like an anime

I watch a lot of anime, This is EXACTLY like a isekai from the isekai boom. This is not bad. Infact, its quite amazing to find a non manga that is a isekai.

A good book but

Honestly I enjoy the book a lot, though I will admit I was/am debating on it being a 3 star.

I like the characters, the world sounds interesting though I think we need more details to flush it out. Same with the magic in like how there is healers,elemantists and a few other types though I hope each are explored a bit further.
I also hope the main character continues as is, he is powerful I just hope it doesn't to go to far.

my main issue really is how fast things developed, yes it's a shorter book which is fine. but how quickly some events happened felt a bit off. The reason i bumped it to four stars is because none of the events are to major this time so I felt it was a good starter book.

I look forward to continue listening to more of this series.

I am giving a good review, however...

I liked the premise of the story. It felt a little short, but it did deliver the feeling it promised on the description. Narration was excellent to the point that I wasn't really even thinking about the narrators, as I usually do, but just enjoyed the story they were telling.

Somehow I do feel like something was lacking from the story. Maybe it's my preference on overpowered main characters, but it felt like the mc wasn't using his power nearly enough. I guess you could have different rules explaining this behaviour or saying some character attributes or personal failings with the mc caused this. I personally had a million different ideas on how he could use his power in the wilds or even just experiment with it.

I like the fact that the mc was written in a way that prevents him from showing of his powers too much, but I wish that when he can, he would be more... awesome(?). The title gave the feeling of an op caster, but so far the feeling I have of the mc is of an unimaginative confused kid who is just going with the motions and somehow has no idea how magic could maybe be used (no games, no fantasy books, no fantasy movies? where did this kid live?)

I like the archer, although her constant "anger" at things seems a bit unexplained. Hopefully further stories will expand on this more than just "she lost tom".
The biggest lost opportunity is that the healer seems an empty shell of a mary sue. Only existing to fill out the needs of the mc. No real devotion to gods is really shown in actions, only in words and she accepted easily the fact the her wish for help in the form of a mage came true, but then was surprised the god came to say hi. Also, why would the god care? The healer doesn't seem that devout... maybe in the next book we will learn.
I do enjoy the orc dude with two shield and the agenda of showing the world that orc can be kind and civilized by bashing peoples heads in with two shield! I do wish he also had more interesting things like fun hobbies such as poetry or knowledge of history or cooking or something fancy. Just to give him more character.

To summarize. It was good, but too short to make anything that happened matter to the reader. The book does not stand well alone and clearly needs more "episodes". It feels like the first part of a cheap tv series. I want to love it, but so far I just think it's good.

I am going to give the second book a chance. But with so many great books out there, some of which the same author wrote, "good" just doesn't cut it anymore.

Actually quite good

The story is both interesting and engaging. The characters show some depth, which can often be lacking in these types of books. It’s not going to win any awards, but it is quite a fun listen.

Good Start!

Logan Jacobs is a talented writer. I really like his harem books. He is skilled at building interesting worlds and races, He also has some skill with description. A lot of his works are also quite funny. Usually, there is not enough sex for me, and when there is the scenes are too short. Still he makes up for that with a nice use of Romance. Usually, too much action/fighting bores me, but this was just right.

This story is interesting and I found it easy to marathon. If you like D&D or other books like Summoner, Dragon Slayer, or Metal Mage. I think you'll enjoy. Here's hoping the next book is a bit steamier.

Not bad I guess

The story was interesting I just really didnt like the narrator. I feel like they were overdramatic during some parts of the book especially the final fight and it just annoyed me.

predictable, but fun

while it was fun for the most part and the performance was superb, the protagonist annoyed me quite a bit; he finds out he has magic, but does not test what he can do. Waiting until combat to try and pull something out of his ass.
The plot was predictable for the most part, but the journey there was fun non the less.

Well done

A big light on details and training but for a guy that just got thrown into a world of magic not too shabby. I enjoyed this book and have gotten the next 3 in the series. Hopefully, they'll all be as good as this one.
