Fed up with a world where science has made every fantasy a reality and people just don’t care about stories anymore, a young video game developer named Kai uses ancient black magic to transport himself into one of his games, titled: Choices.

Disturbed by his powerlessness on Earth, Kai makes sure to give himself the ability to change this new world as he sees fit, literally.

If you were ridiculously powerful, would you throw away all your morals and do whatever you wanted?
Would you find happiness? Would you find love? Or would you end up realizing that…

Absolute power is pretty depressing.

Very good but barely enjoyable to read

This is more like, what if you were Omnipotent? What would you do in that case?

First of all, this is a really complex story, where everything is only explained around the end with there being many hints during the novel, the problem is that those hints are very hard to notice at first, and without knowing those hints, some parts of the story later on get harder to understand.

Here we have a MC who likes to make very well made story driven games slowly losing his job because of such games being no longer profitable for the company he is working, so he transports himself to one of his game worlds where he is literally God.

But being god can be problematic, like the MC finds out pretty fast.

There are quite some flaws with this story, first of all it being seriously complex and the reader is barely getting anything explained of what is actually going on, secondly the fact that this novel while being very good in quality, is sadly not really a enjoyable read.

I honestly really liked this fiction. Although, I do have to admit that I got a little bit too curious cause I knew that the prologue was- SPOILER ALERT- the beginning of the end. So I skipped to the ending while I was 40 chapters in, and oh boy... The feels. WhoCares, to say the least, is one of the few talented authors that can convey the human emotion of sadness into me. I would've cried, but I honestly couldn't.

Got sidetracked. This was an amazing read that got me really thinking about life as I continued to read. But there's a little problem with me thinking about life- I usually get depressed and feel helpless when I do so. Anyways, this isn't exactly for everyone. If you like tragic, serious, and slice-of-life types of fictions, you should read this. But! Be prepared for the feels in the end!

Thought Provoking Story

I absolutely loved the story all the way to the ending. I will be honest with that I had to take a break from the binge where I just felt tired of the story. However, when I came back to complete my reading of it I am astounded with the way you ended the story. The story may be confusing to some on the end but I believe I can say that I understand the premise that you pushed in the ending. If you make this story an Amazon book I only would like to say to give more mystery hints at the beginning of the story that links with the end. Thank you for the amazing read.

Best fucking shit ever!

Although this is my first proper review on a fiction on RRL, I have read over 150 stories on RRL alone, and over 300 novels overall at the very least.

 

RE: WRITE is one of the most amazing fictiI'veever read, purely because of all the well thought out character development and intense plot. This is not about simple fights, wars, being an overpowered mc, no. This is about much more than that, but I won't try to spoil much in this review since this story is too good to be spoiled.

 

Story

The plot in this is a very deep and well thought out plot that makes anyone who ends up reading this story think about life in general at least at some point. This is a guy who made RPG games for a living in a more futuristic world, and gets fed up with his powerlessness and uses some kind of magic to send himself to one of his first RPG's he created 900 years or so in the future.  To make is life fun, and to make sure he will never be powerless again, he gave himself a skill called RE: Write. This ability makes him literally rewrite anything and everything without limits. You might be thinking, wouldn't this just make the story boring and make all plots pointless? You are completely wrong because rewrite has a flaw, it is too limitless. Although I won't try to spoil too much, just think about what you would do if you could do anything but don't know if you should do anything at all. Oh and don't get me started on the plot twists, amazing! :D

Ps. Don't let the first 20 or so chapters fool you! The story has yet to begin!

 

Characters

The characters in this story are very relatable as they aren't just some clichè individual who is there for the sake of the plot. There are no clichè's throughout the story and isn't anyone who seems like they don't belong in the story or should be involved in it more. It is all perfectly well throughout. There are many different POV's in this story, and they all help to develop characters making your heart ache when something depressing happens to them and be happy when something good happens. It is kind of a complicated feeling, but a feeling none the less. The main characters have their own backstories explained and everything flows just right with no plot holes that make the characters seem like they aren't doing anything they aren't supposed to, like when an evil Mc who kills people for fun saves a little girl because why not.

 

Gramma

Well, obviously there would be one or two sentences incorrect but what do you expect, we are all human after all. Basically all perfect and there is a sense of clarity throughout it all.

 

Style

The way this is written is just right and nothing is done too fast or too slow. The use of different POVs are done just right, and the way worldbuilding is done to give the reader a clear understanding of the world. Everything is expressed just the right way, and it flows well with all the confusion since there's a lot of mystery throughout the whole story.

 

Overall

Fucking good shit. Almost made me cry a few times, and the only time that has happened was when watching both Clannad seasons and a few other emotional animes. Never a novel!

Read it if you know whats good for you.

An interesting and catchy story.

I have just read 4 chapters of the whole Novel

 

I must emphasize in the good job made in the Prologue, it is really catchy and interesting. The grammar is perfect and I don't know much about the style, so I cannot say that it is unique, but I can say that it is really rich in many aspects, which are: clear, direct and fluid, which many Novels at RRL and others which I have read (Including mine) sometimes lack of or simply just don't have them at all.

 

In the other hand, the FP narrator is really well made, although I don't know much where the story is going yet, I can say that it is immersive and I agree 100% with the quality of the games nowadays ahaha.

 

That's what I can say for now, I will now head to read the rest of the story! Thank you for sharing your story with all of us, I had fun while I read it.

This story is not typical young boy trained in the arts of combat/magic goes on for revenge/quest to save the kingdom. This story is about a young man escaping a grim future, and exploring a new world. A theme that is admittedly used quite often, but with a new take. The MC practically has the power of God in this realm. A person may draw conclusions from that statement and think they know how this story is going to go down.  A simple look at the authors synopsis "Or would you realize that absolute power is pretty depressing", gives way for a different kind of story. A story where characters are given time to develop, with an interesting blend of action, plots, and honest to god thought on the readers part.

Now I really like this story, and easily spent 2-3 hours reading the first 19 chapters. That being said, there are a few peeves I have with the story. The intro is a little hard to get into, and I wager most casual readers would drop the series at chapter 2. It's simply confusing. Second, the MC is kinda unlikable in the 1st 5 chapters, if you're a predictor like I am and are fairly good at reading the flow and the pattern a story is going in, you may grow worried in the 1st 5 chapters thinking it's the same song and dance you've heard a million times. Then author brings it back and the story gets REALLY interesting. So to you casual readers out there, the 1st five chapters aren't what they appear to be. They set some important groundwork for the rest of the story, but if you skipped the 1st 3 chapters, a God, then you'll be good. Keep up the good work REWRITE.

I suck at reviews. But this book deserves some respect. It’s a trip and half. The characters are fun. You should read it.

A good story with some flaws

I truly enjoyed this story. The premise of having someone with ni-omnipotent power going around doing as he/she pleases is something that I love the thought of.

my complaint is that close to the end (starting around the dark goddess’s appearance) I had trouble understanding what was going on with the main character and the people around him slowly escalating from then on all the way to the finish causing me to repeatedly reread so that I could actually understand what was going on. thankfully it sorted its self out at the end.

The switching point of view was very jarring where I constantly needed to figure out who I was actually following.

overall a very entertaining story that I’m glad that I spent my time to read (and reread).

good story, jumps POV Frequently

ok, so the story as im reading it so far is pretty good, however there are so many things that could be fixed or improved upon. first off, one thing that is really annoying is that this story jumps from one characters pov to another without warning, one chapter your reading one pov then your reading another pov without any notice and that it doesnt tell you or mark the name for the next POV right away. ill update as i go along, or if i just get tired of this

This is the opposite of the classic OP JP day-to-day fluff (Such as Death March). It has the same aimlessness and OP MC, but instead of slowly developing the op powers and flat characters, RE:WRITE jumps to the point when everything is meaningless, because the reality of truely overpowered abilities are, as WhoCares? stated, 'depressing'. This story is a beautifuly written, thought provoking masterpeice.

 

That said, if you are looking for an easy read, I would not recomend this webnovel. The language itself isn't hard, but if you avoid the point of the novel hoping to get some juicy fights and easy comedy, there's not enough to sustain a reader. (I add this beacause I often enjoy an 'easy read', such as Library of Heaven's Path)

Also, I waited to finish the entire work before declaring judgment on it. It's too easy to either miss what an author intended, or have an author ruin the story with a terrible ending. In my opinion reviews made without having read the material are unfair and more often than not inaccurate. I'm happy to say that the author does not ruin this story with it's ending, but I do think that it's easy to lose interest in the middle. Again, I don't recommend this as an easy read: much of the aimlessness is setting up the end, but can be a slog.

 

Next: the reason I took of 0.5 of a star from style because I found that there were some inconsistencies in the pacing, and that from time to time I would have trouble identifying the perspective. The author uses both 'flaws' on purpose at many times throught the novel, which I apreciate, but other times I felt like the flaws were just getting in the way of the immersion.  

 

Lastly, thank you WhoCares? for the great read!
