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...

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.

Recomended for all, not only the concept of the story is great, but the quality of writing is top notch.

it's very well put together and all that but... i just can't get over the hump that is the beginning. the golem maker is supposed to be smart, but he seems like an idiot. the idea that golems can't join a party becuase they don't know what a 'yes' is, seems to never cross his mind despite supposedly trying to do this for months. and everything else that happens is just a string of coincidence and luck.

This is a lovely story. Thank you for bringing this to the world for all to see.

The Armies Converge!

Read this story a while back, but its still fresh on my mind. An adorable tale about a horrendous plot. Unique twist which I really liked, can't wait for new chaps to finally come out! Honestly the little bear had no chance in my mind but by the powers invested in authors he shall survive !!!!

In memorium, comment chains 1 and 2, and maybe 3

 I feel like this deserves a review after what myself and my fellow compatriots have done to that poor comment section, because despite mod intervention, close to 2 years of abuse and 1500 comments later, its still working. Not well, mind you, recently it has become un-bear-ably slow, and it may be time for another great purge, but it lives on. And for that, i salute you, you brave, brave comment section, as well as my allies in our endevour to break you, red loli, yellow loli, our fresh new face, ria, and all those who have fallen to the wayside along the way, stateside, pylon, archerbob amd many more. But not cat, fuck cat.

Fight on, my brave little friend, we will always be there for you

The only reason I read this was due to it being #1 currently on the site. Expecting a phenomenal book, especially from all the positive reviews, I was a bit disappointed at how overhyped people made it seem.

Novel idea by making the mc a teddy bear? Sure. But that’s about it.

I really enjoyed the first 10-15 chapters, but after that it started to go downhill.

Style – Good, but became bogged down under its own weight. While LitRPG makes the story, it shouldn’t run it. In later chapters the LitRPG elements weren’t integrated smoothly. (don’t even get me started on the interludes…)

Story – Descent start, but too many plot points that are attributed to characters stupidity. (i.e. Why were golem scrolls just lying around in a random book in your house, when they make your security essentially null? Why did Caradon pass up all the blatant times Threadbare showed intelligence? Why did Caradon and Mordecai let Celia leave her house without warning her on what to do and what not to, considering her background/circumstances?) Also, as I’ve stated before with the style, the LitRPG elements were great at first, but then the author added so many it became bothersome. In later chapters, two sentences can’t go by without some random level up. It’s excessive and detracts from the storyline.

Grammar – I have no clue how people are saying this is almost perfect. The first few chapters were decent at best. The good thing is that it does get better. Seeing improvement is greatly appreciated.

Character – Threadbare? Well, it’d be almost impossible to not see improvement considering he’s as dumb as a block starting out, and leveling up makes him smarter. Though I’m still not sure I can consider that much, considering a few adjectives could sum up his whole personality at this point. Others? Truthfully, with so little time spent with them, they haven’t been flushed out enough for me to rate them. Sure, they all have intriguing backstories that drive them, but other than that, the characters feel a bit flat.
