Publisher's Summary

Without so much as a warning, humanity is moved into another dimension. Every person...without exception.

This new world, with all its opportunities and gifts of wondrous abilities, is a stadium, a deadly arena of an unimaginable scale, and all of humanity are its gladiators. Every man, woman, and child has been given a weapon and ordered to fight.

Stuck in this dimension without a way out, only two options exist for the would-be hunters: Fight to complete the many trials ahead, or perish. Faced with hordes of powerful monsters, thrown into battle with complete strangers at random, it's an unfair game of survival.

Billions of lives were extinguished in mere moments at the very beginning. But within this abyss of despair exists a small ray of hope: If even one person can complete every raid, humanity will be redeemed and restored back to its former glory. But there are no save points, no revives, no retries. Everyone has just one life to make their way through the gauntlet of raids prepared to test their mettle.

And within this marathon of death, one man discovers an exception to the rules of the game....

Great fun, and excellent narration.

As usual Travis Baldree brought new life to a great book. I am looking forward to the next one.

Great start to a series.

I'm quite sure that the translation was very difficult. I'm also sure that in future novels it will get better.

Thoroughly enjoyed the storyline. One of the best things about this book for me was it was a good mix between action, character building and internal feelings. A lot of the litRPG has got way too much character angst and then a ton of action and a little bit of character building, quite frankly I don't need to know everything every character is thinking or their background or how everything happened and why oh why oh why. A good storyline that keeps you interested is what matters to me.

I'm looking forward to the next one!

Fantastic Performance and Fast Passed Story

This is an amazing translation with an incredibly engaging story. I don’t write reviews often. But this surprisingly great book deserved sing public praise.

If you like enemy of the world then you'll like t

This is one of those books that if you read enemy of the world you'll like it And you can tell why the person didn't put their name in because they seriously could have gotten sued by Disney for some Of the references The author is very gutsy and in some ways original but in other ways there is a paint by numbers to it but it's a good paint by numbers a good set up for the next book With a good dilemma of do I concentrate on myself or do I help people out in order to get this finished finished concentrate on now or concentrate on the future

Story

Maybe it’s just me but the numbers don’t really make sense!! Don’t really get why he doesn’t want anyone to know his nationality either 🤔

Good one

Really liked the system since it rewards those who put in the work but i wish there was more of a background for the mc and the world because the motivation of the mc seemed lackluster to say the least just because he made a promise to someone

Two hours in and I still don't see any potential

The protagonist is completely self absorbed and gives up on people before he makes an effort to try team work.

bought this book not expecting much, but I was surprised at how good it was. It was hard not to binge it, it was super good.
