Chilling, bizarre, and dark, this serial somehow strikes a balance with anachronistic humor. There is nothing else like it that I have seen on this site, or at least nothing like it done this well. We are still in the early parts of the story but already this is one of my favorites. I cannot wait for more!
There is nothing to add more than, it's great.
It goes straight to my re-read when I have time list.
Like the review title says, this story isn't really my style. I don't agree with many of the decisions the main character makes, the direction the plot goes, or many other tiny details, but that's mainly unrelated to the what I should be putting in this review: all of what's below are just the opinions of a rando on the internet O_o.
In my opinion, the entire story feels like it's dragging out the inevitable. It feels like a never ending stream of word soup, with a dash of existential dread and hopelessness for flavor. The often over described scenes make the story blisted and/or constipated, similar to Edgar Allan Poe. Maybe you (prospective reader checking out this review) might like it. Maybe you enjoy reading dread porn? Who knows.
The story is based on the perspective of a character with powerful social anxiety and other personality flaws.
That should say at all; it reads like a diary of a person who has just recovered from being in an insane asylum. It feels disjointed and awkward in some places, but deeply philosophical in others. Sometimes, the results from this strange thought process might surprise you. Overall, not bad, but it could do with a bit more focus.
Grammar is good. A few mistakes here and there, but usually in spelling, not punctuation, and usually not enough to ruin the flow of the storytelling.
If there's one thing this novel does extremely well, it's illustrate characters. The characters feel visceral, realistic, almost as if you're meeting them as the author writes them in. (most of) The characters are charming, witty, and deeply human in a way that lots of authors on RR miss. Unfortunately, (sorry for saying this for the umpteenth time) this means that I hate the main character and I would love to punch the whiny baby in the face.
There is my review. Whether you liked it or you don't like it, I always say read the first chapter and decide what you think about the writing for yourself.
And i will never ever continue. Superbly written with a fantastic idea and it creeps me the fudge out. I got to 4-5 and i refuse to go any further. The existential nightmare that is this glorious piece of fiction shall haunt me the rest of my life. Bravo, and curse you
It's good, and amazing, and i actually had planned to write this long and extensive review, but it's two past midnight for me, so i'll pass.
I will complain about one thing tho. I was promised eldritch waifu. But i wasn't delivered eldritch waifu. Yes, yes, i know. "But Suzy!" Yeah, but shes more friend/manipulator for MC. I want Romance. Eldritch romance! With our boy Cody smashing eldritch waifu. And by that i mean Suzy. I can just feel that they could be something.
Other than that, amazing story, hope it never ends.
That's a good read. A really good read.
Much like Lovecraft's stories, the MC is adrift in a world where powers he cannot fathom take root.
Truth be told, I did not expect that. I came with the expectation of reading yet another OP MC on the path to divinity, with little depth and a very emo character.
Needless to say, I am so far (as of 220~ pages) very pleasantly surprised.
It's a comedy, it's a tragedy, it's a sea of words mostly outside of the MC's control.
Structure-wise it's organized in an easy way to read.
The grammar is good,sand there are no glaring mistakes. Well, English is not my maiden tongue, so I might have missed something.
Why are you still reading my review? Put on some music and dive in!
