Not bad. I started and caught up to chapter 15 today. First off not a lot to judge on but here goes. Story isn't bad it's well written with few if any mistakes. The characters are decent and the author is trying time and effort have been put into it. Now for the bad. Mc is Messed with by a unknown entity and has every reason to be a dark gritty anti hero badass. We get a super fluffy op mc in a rainbow world were the darkest thing is two almost rapest bandits that for catching he has everyone's love. Two bandits? Seriously? The romance is forced to the extreme I'd believe the "love" more if he was using plant spores as a mind control but nope just instant op fluffer mc. Take my criticism with a grain of salt I like much grittier stories and this isn't my style. If you want something light and easy to read that's actually pretty well written this is perfect for you.

Slice of Life with sex, love it or hate it

(as of chapter 24)

'Congratulations, you're dead!' is set in a fantasy setting and at first glance appears to be just another leveling story. That changes very quickly after the MC meets the two other characters who then accompany him. From there it is a Slice of Life story with magic elements. As of chapter 24 it told about the journey to the capital and what happened on the way (can't say more because of spoilers). As the term Slice of Life implies, the focus of the story is on the tiny slices that happen with lots of descriptions and only very little focus on an overarching plot. It's told in third person internal style from the MC's point of view, the descriptions are good. There's also a significant amount of comedy. Grammar is good and spelling is excellent.

There are two problems that I (and I know that these are very personal preferences) have with this story. One is the characters: The MC, by nature of the way he was reincarnated, is totally overpowered. Within moments of arrival he wields incredibly great magical power and that only becomes more within days and weeks. At his low level he already has better magic than (no spoiler, let's call it "high-level mage in important position") and he creates detailed works of art and (re-creates/projects) modern movies just by wiggling his little finger. This leads to the story being a bit boring because there is no struggle. No struggle at all, everything the MC wants to do works splendidly on the first try. And who or what could be an obstacle to a mage that notices every little detail from a mile away before casually creating things never seen before by the people? The other thing I could live without is the large amount of sexual content (some 'only' romance, some very graphic Spoiler: Spoiler

  ), he quickly meets a girl and they fall in love sweeter than diabetes. Speaking of diabetes, there's also paragraph after paragraph about food.

I'm sure that other people love exactly what this story shows but I guess I'm just not the target audience for Slice of Life stories.

OP character and bit too predictably boring

Character too overpowered at the he beginning. Not much needs to be gained and just came to the main character on a need to used basis. 

The humour seems to be bit pushed but I can understand that there was some merit in the beginning where our main character died so many times and the use of Ding.

Pretty good of a story

Well, I won't be too detailed in this review as it's still early in the story, but I will say that it's definitely worth a read. 

I mean, don't go by my word to read things, but if by the 8th chapter you haven't loved the story, feel free to dislike my review.

Edit: we've come far from that 8th chapter.

Well, the overall score goes down.

Some moments for character development feel forced, not all, but I cringe at those moments. 

Sex scenes are stupid... you would do well to skip them. 

Style score remains the same 5/5

Story score remains the same 4.5/5

Grammar remains the same 4.5/5

Character score goes down at 3.5/5 but goes up again from the parts where the author doesn't ruin the character development at 4/5

Overall score goes down at 4.5/5

Still recommend reading it. It has a fast release pace, interesting chapters with interesting characters and interesting story.

Dont let the summary put you off.

I'll be honest, I almost didn't start reading this story due to the somewhat lacking summary. Only the good reviews saved it and I'm glad I did. It's pretty entertaining even if the romance is a little heavy handed and I'm looking forward to more in the future

Enjoyable, and interestingly unique.  I'm looking forward to more chapters, if there were a couple hundred I would gladly binge them all.

Who stole my immersion? :(

Really addictive, decent grammar and interesting concept.. but so immersion breaking I literally can't read this anymore. (as of  #28 https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/24698/congratulations-youre-dead/chapter/367321/28 )

There is too much wish fulfillment and hand-waving and the characters all seem to completely ignore any social context. Sorrel was so careful creating the character and taking the camoflage etc and yet in the end he keeps drawing attentinon to himself and showing off, a bit of a disconnect eh?
Also, this is a feudal society and yet he doesn't even try to (or think of trying to) show any sort of respect to royalty.. wtf!
It's a wonder how the MC isn't yet the enemy of the state with all the buullshit and carelessness he operates with.
Sorrel can also emulate seemingly any modern technology by just wishing hard enough

<"Yes, Ma'am. Right away, Ma'am." I jump up and bring my fist to my chest in salute.

"You're out of uniform, soldier." She plays along with my antics.>ch5

The guy is isekai in that world and say he lived in the wood all his life and the girl is from that world of fantasy.

So ho does she know of military? Why don't she question his knowledge of military when he lived in the wood? She should say armor not uniform.

The focus is pick up girl and the rest suffer. The system don't show his stats, his choice for reincarnation or what his skill or their level do. So the author can do a deus ex machina, i alway had this skill.

I don't even see the point to make the story a litrpg(only show skill, map and inventory), could buy bag and map, without the system there is just no skill popup

A solid high fantasy story, with some comedy. Nott fast paced at all as of yet (which I like). The romance is a little forced, but other than that, all around a fun read.

 This is an Isekai novel. It will not revolutionize the genre but the writing is solid, the characters are believable and the scenario is ok. The story is rather wholesome.
