Pretty good actually.
It's no masterpiece of literature; the prose won't blow your mind and the action isn't orgasmically destructive. The writing is largely unadorned and simple.
That works to this thing's charm, however; it's a relatively simple OP MC comedy story. It's not laugh-out-loud funny, but it is quietly amusing and written competently enough that it's enjoyable.
In short, it reads a lot like a really hot quality snack; a pack of Doritos or some bourbon biscuits.
I do wish we had more details and that the main character had a shade more personality to him; he's pretty basic at the time of writing, but asides from that, there's not much to complain about. His summons are pretty interesting and varied and it's kinda nice to see what he'll pull out of his pocket next.
If you're looking to pass the time with something relatively mindless and simply amusing, I'd say this is a good shout. No idea if the author has grand ambitions or anything, but so far nothing of that like has been hinted at.
The author has a lot of fun reinventing the overpowered MC in this tale. The style & approach are pretty unique and fresh.
Expect lots of dialog-driven shenanigans. The MC Garfield is newly-arrived in the story world, and immediately takes unique approaches to challenges he faces. He often wanders into apparent danger while acting and talking like a clueless idiot, but once he learns what he needs to know, he turns the tables on his antagonists in sly and devastatingly effective ways.
Garfield comes across as an old-school mashup of Clouseau, Poirot, and Columbo thrown into a world of magic as an OP summoner. He's clearly in it for the fun & mind games, but also gets a lot of enjoyment out of helping others & building teams and alliances in his new world. And oh yeah- spending quality time in his magical bed.
Almost everything in the tale is described through dialog, which often involves characters who can't make heads or tails of Garfield's hijinks. Be on your toes & ready to fill in the gaps as a reader, and your reward will be lots of chuckles & belly laughs. There are also many fun 'Wait. Did that just happen?' moments.
Definitely not a cookie-cutter fantasy tale. If you like your Martinis, champagne, and humor extra dry, you'll love this story.
Admittedly, I've only read the first few chapters. Maybe if the author keeps writing the story will improve, but as it stands as of this date 10-07-2022, the story has no direction and gets increasingly uninteresting. The MC is extremely powerful, only slightly more redeemable than a thug, and incredibly thoughtless. Some readers may enjoy a story like this, but in my opinion it is a continuously frustrating and increasingly uninteresting read. Don't waste your time.
this Story is for sure not for everyone becase you need to just acept things that are statet in the Story with no Explaination . it Feels like a Prolouge chapter would do wonders for the Story.
If you want God-like MC you cant just step on that that story is for you.
also there are some Silly things here and there ,but i would not say that is a bad thing.
Right now the Story gets Tracktion and the plot thickens to get interesting .
i like it becase i enjoy this type of story.
