On just another normal Monday, the world changed. The universe had reached a threshold humanity didn’t even know existed, and it was time to finally be integrated into the vast multiverse. A world where power is the only thing that one can truly rely on.

Jake, a seemingly average office worker, finds himself thrust into this new world. Into a tutorial filled with dangers and opportunities. In a world that should breed fear and concern, an environment that makes his fellow coworkers falter, Jake instead finds himself thriving.

Perhaps… Jake was born for this kind of world, to begin with.

It is for the most part entertaining, but some fights really drag on, I find myself skipping sections of a chapter, if not the whole chapter.
The fascinating part of this story is really the interaction between characters, with a pleasant backdrop of world building.
I would, however, personally prefer fewer repetitive fights.

This is a story of coming to grips with the reality that you no longer recognise. It is also a story of someone who has to accept themselves for who they are before they could unlock their full potential and completely blossom. 
While still in its beginning stages, the story follows the MC who is just a regular joe working a 9-5 job. However, as the world turns upside down, we get to see the guy outside of that time frame. We get to know his history and his lost-passion. We see him embrace his passion with open arms and accept the consequences that came with it.
The MC is an introvert and we actually get to see this. It is not like those cases where MC is supposed to be an introvert but is the most likeable person around. If you look closely, you’d see how the situation could have been handled better but the MC didn’t because of his lack of people skills.
The world-building is fairly decent at this point, but it hints at larger things in play. Why is there a tutorial?? Who set it up? What happens to the world while humans are gone? All these questions are left to be answered later.
Grammar is fairly good and the sentences flow nicely. The dialogues are natural, which is a plus point. Overall, this is a good novel.

What can I say I really liked this story. The system is very familiar but got its own twist to make it interesting, but it won't redefine the genre or anything.

The story is also good, though it has its ups and downs. The main character isn't super involved, but more off doing his own thing. I do really like it though, and I look forward to where it goes. There is also hints and a lot of nice world building.

For style then it is rather simple, with perhaps a bit too many Pov chapters. I like most of them, but not all. I do think they make the story overall better though.

Grammar is good, but I am no expert. It didn't annoy me so that is 5 stars in my book.

Characters are a bit of a mixed bag outside og the main character, but that is what I have come to expect. As for the main character, I like him a lot and he is definitely not a mary sue. In fact, it feels like side characters have more plot armor than him. Some of them also make some pretty silly decisions.

Overall I can heartily recommend it for anyone who likes litrpgs. We are still very early in the story, and in my opinion it is only looking up from here.

Really the only complaint that I have is that the dialogue feels stilted and unnatural at times. The conversations are written with perfect grammar most of the time, which just isn't how people talk irl. Other than that I enjoy the story, keep on writing and don't let people get you down.

If u want an intelligent, ruthless hunter, which goes from weak to strong with a little bit of LitRPG this is exactly for you. I love those novels.

 

That's is not a neutral review, but my simple opinion about this novel.

IT IS AWESOME.

The MC is not dumb, he is not some wannabe superhero, he is quite ruthless with himself and to others, he is still quite human and not some psycho. I LOVE HIM. The story is very interesting and the story telling is real good. There is a good amount of text spend on the world-description as on the thoughts of the mc. Cant really put it into words. The flow is just good.

 The author swaps every one in a while to a different POV, while apparently annoyed a lot of readers.
While i dont really like those, why it is actually a necessity. It makes the villains and friends more 3d and as a result not flat and boring. 
What could be a good compromise would be to keep the changes perhaps a little bit shorter, or maybe make the chapter mixed with part mc and part sidecharacter. 
Since the readers really come back to the story because of the MC and not some sidekick.

What I would want for the future would be some kind of companion. A weapon spirit. An animal companion or perhaps shadow companion? Thats actually everything I would wish from the author apart from 50 chapters a day and that the story will have 20k pages because apparently I am seriously addicted.....

I hope the author reads this and can get some encouragment to keep on writing from this review, because he and the novel are amazing.

I find this to be quite good reading material. Where usually the MC wimps out and follows the group, this guy realizes what is best for himself and goes off on his own. I enjoyed that part especially as I personally get tired of groups and the politics that often arise. The MC actively looks for challenges an boy does he find them. The writing and grammar are good. This book was definitely worth the time I spent reading it.

Grammer no problems found here story is good to easy and no type's to be found by my skills.the style is easy to read and the building of chapters flow nice

 

style love the style of the story and the theme and limits of the system it has a nice flow of power and items with out giving the mc the i win button the ability's feel natural and flow nice with the story not giving powers to early or to late

character are nice to read with decent back story and development time that make's there action believeble there is good interaction with all people making the actions they take make sens

story is good to read it takes it time to develop with not feeling to long for plot development every chapter has something to the plot or chars in the flow of the story.

it had a nice feeling in system and mc and power full people in the story making the interaction feel natural. the class system make sense with with the name's and ability's with out giving to much away for the future

I advice all to read this story and follow the adventure's of the mc and the cast

 

the return to earth starts of strong with nice progress of the mc but also the rest of the cast expanding shows good things for the future

Overall

Yes, the premise is similar to lots of other stories, but it pulls it off well. The MC may not have the usual saving the world/humanity goals that others do but does things from a mostly selfish perspective. Good game mechanics, and the plot progression is understandable. MC is somewhat OP, but that probably won't matter as much out of the tutorial. His patron deity is an interesting dude too

BobBer
Overall

This is a great story that I immediately read every time it updates. 

The MC has interesting and unusual classes.

The world seems large enough to have good potential, but the author doesn't drown us in tens of names we will not remember when they are mentioned again six months from now. 

Grammar and style are both good, hence the five stars...

Zogarth creates the wireframe of an extremely rich world with a mixture of litrpg and cultivation novel styles. 

While there still elements which need some TLC, the potential and the depth of the story is one of a kind in my opinion. 

A system throws Jake into a new world, throws him out of his comfort zone, he faces challenges by trusting in his gaming experience and a very keen intution. 

He learns, kills, loots, and grows forming a strong bond with his patron deity along the way.


(If you enjoy the story leave a rating, Zogarth deserves your praise and critique)
