a pretty awesome litrpg

I really enjoyed this litrpg it didn't bog it self down with tons of bloat just giving you the ability and how it worked when it is learned. so if you prefer your litrpg a bit lighter to keep the action flowing this is for you.
the only complaint I have is the mc not noticing people's real reactions to him as well as feeling a bit over lucky in a few spots. honestly though he was enjoyable even still.

10 out of 10 Tavia Gilbert as always is amazing

all I can say is that it's an excellent start to a series and that Tavia Gilbert and Jeff Hayes have to get together and make narrator babies

Fake it tell you make it.

This book is the epitome of this phrase. Honestly, this book is kinda a one treck pony, and I guessed a key point of the ending well in advance. I'll give it points for its original take on a litRPG. I also appreciate that not only did it get straight to business with the intro, but also that they're very little Stat readings. Some litRPG's get bogged down with this, and pull you from immersion of the moment at times.

It is entertaining for a while, but I find myself dreading Dan's perspective since he's often calling people cowards, or manipulative. Even though everyone else practically idolizes him. The constant misunderstanding gets grating after a while. Especially when you realize that's all the book is. If I had to describe it, I would say, it's a sitcom marathon where none of the issues are resolved, but all the other characters besides the main one THINK they are, while the MC barrels head first into the next problem with barely a shread of a plan. Over, and over, and over and over again.

He's not getting by on skill it's like.. Ok think of it this way. If you trained your whole life to complete against others that were trained to a similar standard, then as a professional, it's common sence you do things a certain way. Most efficient path, best lines of sight, ext. Now drop a casual player into the mix. Utter chaos. Instead of actual plans and forethought, this guy bulldozes any plan counting on an enemy that has the same way of thinking. That's the entire premise of the book.

What if, we dropped a newbe with no training into MLG under the false assumption he knew what he was doing?

While the idea was funny, I couldn't help but feel tired of it after awhile.

Story is Worse than GOT Ending

The book is nearly impossible to listen to by the end. Main character is so dumb that he never actually achieves anything. Yet Every move works out at maximum positive results. He thinks he’s acting outside the box at the start, and makes a glass canon character. The other characters think he’s amazing and a brilliant genius.,,., it’s all luck.... WORST BOOK I HAVE EVER HEARD..... worse then GOT ending

Litrpg version of, "The Man Who Knew To Little".

A completely clueless guy, who lucks into amazing things. It's awesome! I'm definitely spending a credit for the next book.

story mastery

masterfully crafted story. the way the author retold the scenes through another character's eyes had me laughing at all mispercieved genius. truly enjoyable and fun read.

side note: this is not a stat grind book people, level ups are shown through the process of stronger enemy defeats and grander scale.

I love this

All the misunderstandings that lead to the final encounter. I love how this book tells it, it got me to want to keep listening till the end, you have to listen to it for yourself.
