Stop bouncing the MCs intelligence like a basketball and fix your title

Reviewed at: 23 - Bell-kun

Dropping by one star because it's frustrating to read about a character that is incredibly intelligent and makes great plans outside of combat then seems to go full retard and try to do things in the worst way possible anytime an enemy comes within a kilometer of her position. I can accept watching somebody sabotage themselves out of stupidity once of twice but not when it's every single time she fights.

 

Almost dropped another star because there is nothing merchant related about this story despite having a complete books worth of content. Kept it 4/5 because despite the false advertising the story is good. Just fix your title or stop having a 250+ page prologue.

 

Also you can probably cut back on the introspection and the dad references a bit and come out ahead. At the very least, you don't have to tell us she heard something from her dad and give a short explanation paragraph if everything written in that style is from her dad. It's quite obvious by the third time. You're just repeating yourself and wasting wordcount.

I miss the merchant part of it, I grow weary at the low amount of answers. She never really bothered learning about the system she is in even with the possibility to ask.  She is sold as intelligent but I don't rly see much intelligence here, she is also arrogant AF. Constant mentions of how smart she is, it really ruins the story for me and i'm quiting. I completely agree with RMULLINS review as well for further explanation.

well constructed and impressive storytelling

Reviewed at: 21 - There Goes the Neighborhood

Its well written and compelling storytelling. I can tell there was thought put into the world and the motivations and capabilities of the main character. Currently, the plot is driven by the need to survive in a alien, hostile world, but by the looks of things the story will continue to evolve and progress as the MC becomes more competent. The basic concepts have been done in other stories before, but there are enough novel ideas and authorial skill to engage any prospective reader who is a fan of the genre.

Nothing the MC utilizes in the story comes out of nowhere. There are only limited deus ex machina moments that serve largely to drive the plot forward as a rationale for her surviving a completely hostile environment. Nothing is too easy for her, and all of her challenges seem reasonable for someone in her position. That's a rarity on this site.

I am thoroughly impressed by the quality of this story as compared to most of the projects posted on this site. The author seems to have a solid grasp of litRPG tropes and the fundamental building blocks of effective storytelling, and I am excited to see what is coming next.

First 15 Chapters are pretty good

Reviewed at: 28 - Essence Mana

Beyond those chapters, it just starts to get stupid. sooo many bad decisions. She loses half her water because she keeps it in her truck rather than her inventory, she goes to kill a rogue ai on a ship to get fixed up by the medical ai with only 6 hours before it runs out of power...Why didn't she tell the ai to go into rest mode or shut down while she leaves the sick bay?? I liked that she wasn't OP at first bc that can get boring. However, the author makes Luck the op power that keeps the MC alive when she makes a nuclear bomb out of her own inventory and kills Giant Ais without leaving any bodies and the mc doesn't even have a scratch from the explosion itself. The book just gives things to MC and then takes them away through her bad decisions, all the while with her Pops voice in her ear giving her advice that doesn't seem to make her any smarter. It's not fun to read about constant misfortune. Also the title is catchy, but not at all descriptive of the content. The system is supposed to be snarky but it basically just awards titles to the MC and gives her new skills- Like looter, desecrating the dead type ish with 5 different skills associated...It's kind of sloppy after chapter 11-12 in content, plot, rising action and worldbuilding.

Good story, annoying MC.

Reviewed at: 14 - The Piles

Would be a great novel if the heroine wasn't so much burdened with daddy issues. Like, its not even a running gag, its a full blown obsession. Doesn't matter which dimension she is, doesn't matter what is she facing - be assured, the Pop's figurative ghost living in her head has some words of manly wisdom to dispense.

The girl basically is unable to go for 10 minutes without pondering: "What would my dearest Pops say about this?". Unhealthy as hell. The pops is the main character of this book, it seems.

The story started off quite good, then we got to chapter 20 and beyond. There are two different stories here with the same character name and basic setting - leading to a bait and switch with the "Slice of Life" tag, issues with pacing, and generally painful approach to character growth.

I feel like the author wrote and/or planned the first part of this novel, and then frantically tried to keep things 'interesting' as the story picked up in popularity. If the story ever goes through a rewrite for consistency I'll try it again, but for now every time the name shows up while browsing I'm just disappointed.

Edit 10/15/20: Star rating moved up slightly to show that while I don't enjoy the story it is at least not below readable as the 2.5 star rating implied. Apologies if this was misleading.

This is an early review, but I like what I see so far. The Author is engaging, has a relatively new basis for the system, and few errors that distract from reading. 

I gave the story score a lower score because the story hasn't really kicked off yet. As of chapter three, it's sort of standard 'lost in a dangerous place' exploring with no merchant content, but I'm looking forward to seeing how that comes into play

Updated Review : 09222020

Really a unique take on a standard system novel that blends the familiar and the absurd at a speed where it all sort of jells into a workable whole.

It's a little rough that the story is very focused on the main characters when the worldbuilding is such that it could support equal time with the side characters. But the pacing has kept up for an entire book now so the narrow focus has not really hurt the story.

Probably the best thing I could say is that the MC didn't handle the end of the world and the start of the system on Earth at all well.

Absolutly a good weekly read to splurge on a couple chapters in a row.

Nice gem:). Glad it’s in the trending so I could find it!

Reviewed at: 22 -Check Engine Light

Fun premise, enough of a different spin that it feels fresh and interesting. This looks like it will become massively popular as the character is funny and complex. Writing is mature (as in not pubescent, not x-rated). Super enjoyable and I'm looking forward to how things go. Thx author!
