Meet Threadbare. He is twelve inches tall, full of fluff, and really, really bad at being a hero. Magically animated and discarded by his maker as a failed experiment, he is saved by a little girl. But she's got problems of her own, and he might not be able to help her.

Fortunately for the little golem, he's quick to find allies, learn skills, gain levels, and survive horrible predicaments. Which is good, because his creator has a whole lot of enemies...

A little hero with a big heart

Excellent world building, great characters, and interesting plot.  Don't let the cutness of the our hero be bearicade to you reading this great story!

Amazing, for a lack of better adjectives.

Threadbare combines unreliable narration, clever worldbuilding, ingenious humor and likeable characters into one of the best ongoing stories I've had the pleasure of reading.

This is a truly fun story to read. I find myself looking for the next chapter to drop constantly. The character is unique and the world has room to grow past the first adventure. Please consider reading!

An MC with great Bearing

From the description I thought it might be similar to 'When a plush comes to shove'(A light-heated teddy RRL novel). This is anything but light-hearted, it is full of intrigue and suspence. The novel is 100xmore awesome and 20xmore gruesome. With well paced character and skill growth, this is in the top 10 litrpg's I've read.

Surprisely a damn good story here. Not some disgusting cop out copy paste reincarnated person bullshit with half of every chapter being dumb stupid boring numbers and retarded skill nonsense. The primary character best of all stays within its means and character of what and who it is. This is among the EXTREME FEW non human protagonist stories out there and most important is not complete shit. Author is doing good so far and seems to have good direction and pacing aside from the later changes could have been brought out a bit later.

Synopis is actually good to btw

Wine the puh: fantasy adventurer extraordinair

it's no wounder that the rewiews keep swinging between winie the puh, padington bear and chucky.it's just that good.

 

the characters are all intricate, with their own dreams and motivations, and their interactions flow naturaly. The autor knows how to do show, not tell about it all, and forshadowing is done masterfully.

 

The storry manages to mix existential dread, death, lost inocence with sugary overdoses of fluffy adorableness and teaparties in a complatly natural way. Becouse OFCOURSE that is what you do when the necromantic midboss threathens to evicerate your special someone. it's just polite. 

a much veirder but atleast as thought out system as any. some of the weirdest baseclasses i have ever come across (i mean, the Model class as a base adventure class? come on), but they work. it's even a huge part of the story, the secrecy and worth of the knowlage about high level jobs, and their unlocks.

 

Normaly, you would think that when an autor that is this big on puns and references, it would get straind really fast. but no. The puns work. extreamly well, even. even when the instorry characters point them out. Gramar is fine, with the occasional small mistake. way, way better than most on the site, on par with Iron teeth.

I feel like this story deserves a review, I initially overlooked it, then it became the best rated story on Royal road. Now I understand why, the world is immersive, the characters colourful and the plot intruding. Also, I love Zuula

It's simply the greatest! The combination of cute, fluffiness and death is... to simply put it... fucking fantastically amazingly awesome!!!... Don't ask for the... not so simple answer... please... it'll take me like an hour to type.

This is a real gem. The book is well thought out, very well written and to the author i say: Well played, sir!

After 70 chapters i have chosen to review this book, which is not something i do often. This book is VERY well written. The story is coherent and complete. The world- and characterbuilding is done flawlessly and the story has enough silly and tragic to make you laugh and cry with the characters. The characters have depth and personal growth, with individual quirks and personalities.
The world is complex and heartless, and our teddys quest to reunite with his little girl seems impossible at first. Yet with friends and the right attitude, (and ALOT of grindluck!), nothings impossible!

TLDR: Your emotions will be played with as you follow the teddybear who just wanted to be with his little girl. Instead he is sent on a grand quest of impossible proportions, connecting with old friends and new.
