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...

It has humor, cuteness, tragedy, insideous demons and murder. It has a clear positivness and rightousness but still showing earnest conflict being torn to do what you think you must do and is right or not. And sex jokes. Crude mix with the inocence sometimes, but heck it was awesome and somewhat refreshing, if that makes sense.
Litrpg system with lots of things but not overwhelming. Well if you bingeread everything is still fresh in your mind but compared to other Litrpg it is not too much but still complex enough to be a veritable world.
one more praise and critic

An incredible novel, amazing setting!

I totally fell in love with this. I've read the first two chapters like one week ago, and I read it all by now. It's a compelling story, the chapters are quite long and that's great.

The main character is totally awesome, in many ways, and a hell of a surprise. I've loved the secondary one, especially Pulsivar. It's a litRpg that you want to play and to abuse. A rulebook is coming for it, and I expect it to be quite as fantastic than the novel.

The only downside in this trilogy is that, sometimes, the accent of certain characters make them hard to understand. Some others have less screentimes than the main cast, and when they come in you don't really remember all they can do.

But really, this was a blast. I crave for more Threadbare actions, and looking forward for more of the universe.

Created an account just for this

Threadbare is an incredible story that has me hooked at every twist and turn. The author creates such amazing depth through a teddy bear. Here is my review in detail:

Style Score:

5/5 - I love the litRPG genre, so I may be a bit biased, but the way that the author uses this creates such an incredible depth in the world of this story and in the teddy bear that has all of our hearts. I think that Andrew may be on his way to reinventing the way that the genre is handled. I love it.

Story Score:

5/5 - I'm not quite that far in yet, but it keeps me hooked through every little detail. There are hints towards a dark future ahead and I cannot wait to see what's in store!

Grammar Score:

4.95/5 - The occasional error here and there, but no more than anyone else makes. Very great, you can tell that care is put into the grammatical correctness of the writing.

Character Score:

5/5 - Incredible character depth in the main characters, and, as far as I can tell so far, no ridiculously stereotypical archetypes.

Overall Score:

5/5 - Andrew can you please make a real MMORPG? Please?

By the second chapter, I wanted to own a copy of this story, but I couldn't stop reading to go buy it on Amazon. 

I loved the way the author poked at gaming steriotypes, and the fact that the luck stat has a negative as well as positive effect? :)

Listened to all the audiobooks. Simple, but sweet. Lots of fun puns. It felt a little... rushed? Hmm. Maybe I'm just used to stories that are more drawn out for effect, but I would have liked more time to be drawn to each of the many characters better, to see more of them. Maybe I just need a sequel. ;)

Marvelous. Simple as that.

This story is a piece of art - each word a picture, drawn with utmost precision, filigree beauty and a sense of humor that risks skeletons jaws to dislocate, their rips to break. 

Andrew Seiple inducts his readers into a breathtaking, eye-opening tale of friendship, loyalty, bravery, ingenuity. Each character is created with a sharp eye for detail and his writting style is one to adore. 

I fully plan on reading Small Medium, but I just can't let go of my attachment to Threadbare and his companions. Nevertheless I completly intend to buy those printed books and read them to my future children.

Sir, you did a fine job!
