Waking up in a white room, surrounded by bones wasn't how Chris planned on spending the rest of his life. He hadn't planned on ending up in an alien laboratory full of caged monsters either.

Fun story so far with 'slimy' MC, possibly could be great.

Reviewed at: Chapter 28: Harvesting

This story is quite the good and enjoyable read, it does things just a bit different as litrpg stories like this tend to do, and it does them right, atleast up to the most recent chapter at time of review.

Christopher, or Chris is a rather normal person, one that loves playing MMO games, and would have kept doing so, if not for the system arriving on earth and taking away all its denizen in preparation for the Tutorial. He adjusts rather fast to having a status menu and stats in his real life, mostly thanks to all his knowledge and experience as a gamer, this allows him to get quite the head-start on other people, though does not prepare him at all for what finds him in the prepatory time. Now in the Tutorial world, the system itself treats him differently due to him not being fully human anymore, even if that does open much more possiblities, there are also huge risks attached to it, for he will be in problems when people find out what he became, and there is also the question of just where he has to head in on the path to power, either maintain his humanity, to try to be normal, to balance his sides, or even give in to his monster side.

Chris is quite a fun MC, i just like reading about him, it does help that he is a gamer and thus to a certain degree, already knows what to expect of the new world he is in and the system governing it all. He is not averse to actually tricking people, if he stands to gain for it, though its not sure if thats his instinct of a gamer, or something that came from his transformation. He may seem Overpowered, especially with all he recieved so far, but the challenges are also on par, and considering he is the MC of this story, of course he is allowed to be, within set limits.

There are signs that there will be quite the morality issues coming up eventually, mainly due to his changes, which are barely explored so far.

I hope he just stays like this, and does not become a maniac out for levels or something like that, i doubt the story will gain from having such a MC.

Not much has been shown so far of other characters, though considering that he lords over a domain now, it seems like it is bound to change, and that he will be interacting quite frequently with other people, and thus we could have some side-characters.

Setting is quite interesting even if not original, as it looks to be quite inspired by stories like Ghosthound, Defiance and the likes, this story so far does not look original, though thats not required. The system used here is the most interesting part of this story and its setting, there are some rather original elements used for the system.

Though im a bit worried, considering this story does seem to combine Xianxia with litRPG elements, while that makes for a popular combination, looking at other such stories, in most of them, it does not hold up well over time,  with the quality generally going down over time, so far there are no signs of that happening yet however.

Grammar is barely a problem here, with there maybe being some minor typo's and other such errors, which should not pose a problem to the vast majority of readers. 

This story reads rather well, it is just written in such a way, that it flows greatly, keeps a reader hooked in further reading the story until the end, the fast pacing which also fits perfectly and the frequent action also does quite help in that aspect.  No problems so far with the way information is being delivered to the reader.

There is just one main POV in the story so far, that being the MC, with just a couple one chapter only POV's that arent appearing again, however considering it is early yet, and other characters arent introduced yet, this is surely bound to change, and it remains to be seen how it is going to be handled.

Keep in mind that the first chapters are of a different quality than the rest of the story, with the very first being the main problem, serving as an introduction to the story and the system, it does read rather differently, the second just starts with the MC being thrown in it all, though thats just normal for about any story of this kind, even if he does not get any kind of prologue as a introduction to his character.

 

Readers who like stories like Defiance of the Fall, Randidly Ghosthound and other such stories, will find it quite easy to like this one, as for now it can be considered to be a better written version of them that shows a lot of promise in what it could become, though granted, it is currently still early.

Thus give this story a try, it is currently just a such nice enjoyable read, even if that could be bound to change, due to how stories of this kind are like, for better or worse, so thus keep that in mind when deciding to start reading this story.

Review as of chapter 30:

The prologue was is a lot to get your head around what is happening and is not a good example of how the following chapters read.

The following chapters are easy to read, outrageous funny in places. Strong MC and someone relatable to. Supporting characters have not come into the story in a big way yet, however still early in the story.

No majors with grammar etc.

Strongly recommend reading this.

Great story, fun characters, can't wait for more!

Reviewed at: Chapter 36: Wounds

I've been reading for a very long time, literally read almost every non-romance novel on webnovel original or not, been on royal road for years now and other scuffed sites, I've had to of read at least a thousand different novels by now. Obviously I haven't finished them all, but my point is I know a thing or two when it comes to knowing whether a story is good or not.

Let me tell you, this one here's a gem. 

I'm not going to try to write a supermassive review since I'm really tired right now since I literally just binge read every single chapter (1-36). Its 7:30 in the morning >.> 

If you're looking for a headstrong, creative and hilarious MC who battles his way through a litrp esque world with some specks of xianxia thrown into the mix, this one is for you. The way our MC, Chris or Christopher uses his skills to prevail against foes he honestly shouldn't be facing at his stage, overcoming them through sheer wit and luck is honestly quite satisfying. The style and pacing of the story is done pretty well, although the first few chapters just whizzed past a bit too fast. In my opinion, there should have been a breather section, where Chris could've calmed down just slightly to consider everything that's happened but it could also be argued that the reason he didn't need to is because Chris is one of those OP / Creams of the crop talents. Also the thing with the meridians *cough* spoiler? *cough*.

Anyways, if you're still reading through this terrible review, then all you should know is this story is good shit and you should be reading it already. If you have any doubts about grammar, don't worry because it's almost perfect. There is the occasional missing letter one every 600 words? and sometimes there the author decided to use The instead of As or another more appropriate word, but the intent comes across perfectly fine and there are no moments where I have to stop and reread the sentence again for clarity. 

Also, I read the comments on pretty much each chapter and the author is very active, which is a great sign. I'm going to stick around for a while, good luck author!

This is a fun one so far. I've read up to chapter 34 and the author has done a really good job. The worldbuilding is quite good and (spoiler alert) there's even a bit of base building. It's basically just the right amount of crunch, too, with the blue screens and whatnot.

It's worth a read and I hope it's on trending soon, if it isn't already. It's an up and coming series for sure. Give it a read and you'll probably like it a lot.

It's good. May want for human interaction, but still good.

24 chapters released at time of review.


I personally didn't care much for the prologue's writing style, but I did like the rest of the novel.

Other than that, it is fast paced and action in every chapter.

Short-ish chapters, but they're action packed. Chris is not a wishy washy kind of character. He gets shit done.

The writing style is interesting. I don't know if it's for padding word count or what, but the lyrical, philosophical tone in the prologue was great.

I'm looking forward to Chris' development. Will he slide down the slope and embrace his monsterness, or cling tightly to his humanity?

Don't let the title fool you

Reviewed at: Chapter 25: Blood

Have read to chapter 25.  This is a good story.  Worth reading. 

A few minor grammatical or spellings errors but they don't detract from the experience and will likely be edited away soon enough.

i love this, its the kind of story with an OP character, kinda like New World in the early days, where the character is just the right amount of everything.
