Copy, Paste: The Misadventures of Milo Two

by treebark

Warning This fiction contains:
  • Gore
  • Profanity

Milo, 30, has everything going for him—with the exception of a paying job, girlfriend, or anything resembling an active social life.  None of that is about to change, but he will be transported—copied?—to another dimension where the rules are pretty different, so that’s…something. 

Join Milo as he bids farewell to his sister’s spare bedroom and says hello to the magical world of Altabar, where he’ll encounter scary monsters with lame names, meet new friends, and learn where not to pee.

Solid Lit RPG But A Little Vanilla

Reviewed at: Chapter 26: Lots of Nope

Twenty six chapters in, this seems like a fairly solid entry in the guy gets transported (in this case he thinks copied) to a new world with a system.  So far though, there are no real twists or added elements beyond survival and progression; no quests, no life mission to save anyone or oppose anything.  Milo has discovered no particular purpose or reason for being, although he does seem to be enjoying the opportunity to get stronger.  Similarly, he has no enemy except monsters and his own ignorance, blundering into a dungeon.  After reading so many lit rpgs, the vanilla feel here is real.  The only "twist" is that his best class choice by rarity is not a traditional combat class, but he makes it work with skill choices.  Although fairly vanilla, the story is otherwise well done, easy to read and pleasant, and as such has a solid base to veer in whatever direction as the story continues.  That said, I'm not sure there is any veering coming -- the story seems content to be what it is, a bare bones lit rpg, in which a guy gets tossed into a new world and very soon thereafter into a dungeon.

An excellent story!

Reviewed at: Fight

If you haven't read this story yet, it's time to start!  This is an excellent addition to the "transported into a video game/alternate reality" genre.  There's exploration, comedy, critical thinking, unfortunate circumstances, and oddly familiarly named enemies.  A must read!

Aks the reader to make too many jumps of "wild" logic, when a proper grounwork prepared beforehand, could have could have lead to sound reasoning. 

Also the mc disregards his background, condition and situation he finds himself in, to go and check what plot wants him to do. Lacks consistent behaviour.

I like the start so far, its always enjoyable to see a MC given difficult choices and a limited toolbox and have to think out of the box to win.

Still early, so we will have to see what world building he has planned but so far enjoyable. The review must be at least 50 words so here you go.

Relatively vanilla lit rpg so far but the writing style and character makes it an enjoyable read nonetheless. I'm also a sucker for anyone trying to munchkin skills (when its not too unbelievable) and this character looks to do exactly that. I have high hopes for this one in the future and will keep checking in with it as more chapters get released. 

 

It's good, read it

Another potential RoyalRoad giant

Reviewed at: Chapter 31: Reunion

Has the potential to be another great fic on royalroad.

Writing:
The writing is great and the story somehow feels new and refreshing despite a familiar and easily accessible litRPG setting and premise. Grammar is great and there aren't the clunky sentences and misspelled words that stop you from immersing yourself in some other fictions.

Characters and litRPG:

The characters are enjoyable to read and the author uses shifts in POV well to keep events exciting and give the classic incredulous external perspective on the MC. The MC is not overly munchkin-y but still makes smart decisions and carefully thinks about his progression, and the litRPG elements are notably present but don't dominate the story.

Plot:

It's still early days but the shape of the story is already present and I'm eager to read more and find out what will happen. MC transmigrates to a litRPG fantasy world and falls into an instanced dungeon with a fantasy native, and now has to proceed through it. Classic problems around communication and not understanding each other are interesting and enjoyable, but are resolved before they reach tedium. 

The title and blurb didn't make this seem like it would be as amazing as it is, but within a few chapters you will be hooked, trust me. Just try it out!


Overall, LOVE IT!

This is in a sense a placeholder score. Since a few people gave 0.5 stars, I decided to help counteract that.

This is in another sense also a real score. Since for now, I am whole heartedly enjoying the adventures of milo. 

However, we don't have world yet. This is still in the early stages so it makes sense but for now, as mentioned, the story is just about Milo.

As long as the world is as interesting as Milo, this has the potential to be one of the top in this site.

He is also learning skills very fast, and this will get tedious soon. I hope the author has some inkling of how and where to go with it. 

No blue boxes :( why?

I wish you good luck and I will probably update the score to better fit once I have some sense of the world, and its common sense etc.

The title is misleading. I think i could be,

Reviewed at: Chapter 39: Boss Fight

So, the easiest way to simplify this is a new story of a copy-pasted person in and other world. Yes, he was copied on the isekai.

He started nicely, briefly and goes with the soul of gamer. Trying to exploit the system to his advantage. I love this far, it's was amazing and quite out of the box thinking. So many possibilities, and just a new story. He still on the early chapter of his first arc

After 25 chapters, I am finding the web novel quite enjoyable. It's a little slow to start, but picks up steam after a few chapters. It's fun to read how the MC gets creative with his abilities.   The author understands munchkining very well. The flying book is genius.  It will be interesting to see what comes next.

Gotta say that i love the writing in this one. It feels really smooth and Lustrius to read. Not only that, the story really Seem to stand out with the indebth thought processes of the MC, aswell as the unique power setup that he is going for. I'm up to chapter 36 and so far this story is definitely worth the read!
