Interesting. An entertaining premise.

This story most definitely goes into some odd directions. If I am given absolute power over everything, literally, I'm sure I would get more creative and sadly, I must be honest with myself, I would surely be more greedy than our protagonist. That said, some of the protagonists choices had me scratching my head and others had me banging my head against the pillow when reading at bedtime but overall out was an entertaining story. A perfect hero wouldn't make for a very good story, would he?
I was pulled in almost from the start and honestly the book did drag on a little through the halfway mark but finally picked up near the end. I had envisioned a completely different resolution, if you will, but the story came together rather well at the end. It was decent entertainment.

Fascinating

This book is unique in not only allowing frailty in its protagonist but genuine flaws that color actions and perceptions.

You won’t regret spending time in this marvelous world

Interesting enough to get the second

This one was interesting enough that I would like to get the second book if there is one, but everything is wrapped up enough at the end that if there not one there’s very little left unanswered. However, there’s enough room for expansion that a second story is an interesting possibility.

Far more interesting than I expected.

History, mythology, and psychology meld together in an exciting dive into the true motivations and needs of a human being.

Touching

This was a good story. Delightful to listen to, a relatable mc with a perspective that hits home. I'm glad I stumbled on it.
