Year 2719. After centuries of battling monsters and the threat of extinction, humanity found survival by holing itself inside fortified settlements. With much effort and a little bit of luck, we rediscovered the two greatest pieces of technology from the past—television and the internet. Too bad they threw us off the track of progress.

Now the most talented evolvers only dreamed of becoming famous duelists, appearing on TV and having droves of fans admiring them. Gone were the days of striving to reconquer the land taken by monsters. By the time we realized the mistakes in our ways, it was too late and violent changes were set in motion. Changes that caught up to me.

One day I woke up in an abandoned mine with no memories of my past, possessing the power to eat monsters to increase my stats and an unmeasurable thirst for revenge.

As I usually disclose, I'm not a native english speaker so you might find many misteks in my writing. Any and all help in that regard is appreciated.

This story will be slow-paced, and while it will have that OPness we all like in our stories, the main character will have to earn it.  He will not be killing demon lords and dealing with deities by chapter 50. 

You also need to have in mind that this will not be a smooth ride for the MC. If you are prone to convulsing when things don't go well for the MC this might not be for you.

I've read up to chapter 8 and I've to say that it looks promising so far. I read the other novel by the same author and that is also an interesting read. 
This story seems to have the good old monster hunting with light litrpg elements. I'm bored with too many gimmicky things that most novels have nowadays so looking forward to it. MC has a good cheat ability that will help him to evolve faster. This can definitely turn into an addictive read.

Review up until chapter 9. I expect to change it after the MC leaves the starting area and the plot kicks in.

Its still early, but this novel seems really promising, Story telling is solid, grammar is fine, and the world seems well thought out.

This is a take on Modern Fantasy/Earth Clashing with another dimension/ Mana awakening/ System awakening etc, that Koreans are so fond of; The most well know of the genre would be Solo Leveling I guess.

Overall its okay so far, its mostly what you'd expect of a Lit-Rpg start, that being underdog MC, leveling-up fanservice and the makings of a potentially OP character. But those were well handled so far, the action was good, and the author himself said he doesn't want this to devolve into a muder-hobo dick waving OP MC story, so I have hope for this one.

  This has been a good start to a story with a unique twist on the monster eating trope. The grammar is pretty good for RR standards. The character and plot is coming along nicely, we are still in the early stages of the story so I’m interested to see where the author takes it. Speaking of the author they have taken critisms in stride and used them to hone both their story flow and character without completely capitulating to reader demands which is nice to see. If the author can keep a good balance between plot and the little fun things that make people love Litrpgs this will be a great story.

Too early to say anything for sure, but it definitely has promise!

It started out good, like your everyday Litrpg novel, then it devolved. The MC who is relatively strong for his age - as stated in the book - "One of the top percent". (SPOILER))))




Joins a bunch of kids to do crimes to catch some mystery person who in all rights is doing what the MC wants to do - Kill Guards. It just seems like theres a better way to introduce a character into the story then contradicting yourself every step of the way. Hes clearly strong enough to survive by himself if he just moves to another city and gets an ID, hunts beasts, eats, levels up and lives life for his revenge. All in all, this novel disappointed me beyond belief, had high hopes due to the first couple chapters.

Love this story so far, plenty of new LitRpg mechanics that i've only seen seperately being melded together rather seamlessly. I'm quite impressed so far, not to spoil this amazing gem but I truly hope our gluttonous MC continues his quest to fill the eternal void that constitutes his stomach! 

Read if you're not a dweeb and actually have a life.

Six pages in so far and the novel is looking good. It's still new so give it a chance and give it a read.
