Review must have a title

I love vaguely comedic dark superhero stuff like this.

Worldbuilding is always the best part. It's just so interesting.

Tofu is my favorite pychopathic non-human protagonist since Boxxy. 

The only downside to this work is the small chapter count. Hasn't updated since I found and read all current releases, but if it gets regular updates I would personally put it as my favorite ongoing story.

Sparks the imagination, invests the reader, and leaves me wanting more.

Excellent writing of a nonhuman trying to hide in a 'drone' society

Worm'd it's way into my favorites

Reminds me of worm, and if that isn't enough reason for you to start reading this well we've got different taste so nothing I say about great characters, world building, and plot will.

Its written well enough that I couldn't put it down, I wanted more. The main character manages to be a wonderfully written non human character. Who is socially clueless which he gets away with by luck and human love quirks. While maintaining a believable non deus ex machina feel. 

Side characters seem like they will have nice actual stories behind them and not just a plot device.  

World building is well integrated and makes sense as Main character learns as we learn. 

Story is okay so far i love the way it's going but not a whole lot has happened besides escape from lab. 

Any grammar mistakes haven't been immersion breaking

Definitely deserving of its position in the top ratings section. Holy cow, this story is a beast that has successfully nabbed my heart.

It has very interesting backstory that is obscured by the forestory. Mysteries galore. MC's stilited humanity is certainly a breath of fresh air. Although it follows prevalent contemporary elements, it's not just a shallow reskin of some of the popular web fiction.

MC's inhuman streak is certainly a gold mine of humor and potential. So far, all the new elements only reinforce previously introduced elements which form an interesting story. The light bulb of narrative continually warms up, revealing more and more of the construction site that is reading this story.

I love it! Wish there was more.

Ok beginning but boom story takes off

Reviewed at: Sidedish #5

The first few chapters were hard to get through but after  few chapters the story takes off and is super addictive. 

  • Overall Score

An amazing book which takes you on a journey of what it is like to be an escaped test subject. Sadly the only downside is the slow rate of chapter releases which gets annoying.

I avoided this particular story for the past few months, as it simply did not seem like something I would enjoy. Upon seeing that it had reached number two in popularity last week, I decided to try a chapter or two.

Now I'm at the end of what's currently published, and I wish there was more already written. I'll be following this one and looking forward to future chapters.

The non-human perspective is well done. Things happen that make sense from the character's perspective that demonstrates the author has seriously thought about the disconnect between what the main character is and what a normal person takes for granted.

The other characters are well thought out with more nuanced relationships than you would expect in something like this. While you can somewhat follow the plot and it has a certain level of predictability with some character interractions, other items are vague enough that you're able to be pleasantly kept in suspense.

Will this character trigger? Or will their point of conflict be when/if they find out another character is working for a villain? Or both?

The worldbuilding itself is also quite excellent. The establishment of the city, and the history works well, and because the main character is new to everything you learn along with the main character instead of dealing with a bunch of exposition and explaination in the first few chapters.

Not to mention the complexities of the virus, bacteria, triggering, and how society is built around them during the time in which the story occurs.

I had to repost this, as Google logged me in with the wrong account previously.

I put this off for so long because I don't love non human leads. You have to do them just right and I think a lot of people fail but this author does it perfectly.
