I was drawn to this book by its bright cover. I was looking for somewhere to start and it looked so different that it hinted at originality and not taking itself too seriously which is refreshing. It’s a light-hearted romp with plenty of laugh out loud moments, a feisty female MC and a very laid-back gamer. Maybe the gamer could be more aggressive but it’s easy to like him. This appears to be a first book and I think the author has made a great start.
Style: Flows easily with appropriate natural dialogue. Doesn’t try to overdo the description with unnecessary adverbs and adjectives but still sets the scene while not sacrificing the action.
Story: Basically jumps straight into the action where Melly, a young village girl, encounters our gamer in the forest. The story follows them as they try to rescue her village from villains. On the way they build an entourage of assorted and quirky characters. Just when you think you know what’s going to happen, something unexpected takes our heroes in a different direction.
Grammar: Very good. Some minor faults. You can tell it’s been properly edited.
Character: Clemiticus MC is a bit cocksure, prone to stuff ups but generally likeable. The female protagonist, Melly, is strong and feisty without being bitchy. There are several other characters, my favourite being Neucus, who mixes up his adjectives.
Very good. Basically it's from an NPCs perspective on a gamer entering their world. It's absolutely ridiculous in a good way😁
NGL it's taking a long time for me to read as you have to be in the "right" mood. This isn't a serious type of book as MC just wants to have fun so he just goes with the flow.
I have no idea how one would review this story to capture it's full color range.
One, I could tell you that the cover is ... accurate. And pretty much sets the tone for the story.
Two, this is exactly the kind of story I love to find around here, bizare, interesting and unique. Unlike most others that fit the same bill, it's easy to read and no grammar mistakes that I could see. (not a native speaker)
A laugh-out-loud comedy of errors.
The main character is Melly, a young villager lady. She is unfortunately saved by an otherworldly gamer and his reality-bending fairy.
This is a fantasy world, slowly turning into an immersive RPG by a higher power, for giggles.
The gamer, Clemiticus, is by no means a toxic personality. He simply feels that way to Melly. I'd say he's rather mild-mannered, as far as gamers go. Good news: Clem doesn't swear, PK, go grimdark, or enslave.
I am happily surprised about the (so far) lack of harem and the complete off-the-wall humor. :)
Definitely a funny jaunt that takes the piss out of the traditional tropes of Western LitRPG's.
For those who loved "Beware of Chicken" This provides many of the same feels early on. Hopefully it continues with just as many laughs as it currently has.
It might need some minor editing, but it's pretty clear this is something to watch.
I just hope it doesn't get dropped anytime soon!
Up to halfway chapter 8, which was when I pulled the plug, yet another generic litrpg parody with its customary snarky protagonist, serendipitous gags, meta genre savviness, etc. Probably the time is ripe for parodies of these parodies to become a thing.
Just the usual jokes and gags; no characterization, worldbuilding or prose to speak about. What it does, it does as well as any. Fans of the genre who haven't yet been exposed to too many of these will probably get a few laughs out of it.
