Jeb Trapper tried to kill himself. The gun jammed.

Two months later, the vet is now participating in underground trials of ecstasy to treat his PTSD. Everything seems to be going great until:

Jeb is teleported into a tutorial, along with everyone else on Earth. Now, he has to choose the level of difficulty. There's just one problem: He's high as a kite, and nothing seems impossible.

It was great, till the end

I loved this book, it was great, except the last part

*Spoilers*
.

.
.

When Jeb is confronted by the council and he loses all his powers and then wakes up on the new earth with no power, and the implication from the 2nd book's description showing that Jeb doesn't have his power back? What was the point of him earning all that he did. Why even both having him earn any power if you're just gonna strip it away, and the fact that you basically took away so much of his character development away. it actually makes me want to avoid the 2nd book when it comes out.

You don't spend an entire book building up on a character and their power just to literally take it all away all, especially when there were 5 others who committed the same "crime" but they didn't get this punishment.

Finally, a non harem litrpg with character growth

This genre is so overdone right now with generic puberty driven character motivations. Nothing wrong with that except it makes it difficult to find a decent story not clogged with clumsy (usually cringey) sex scenes.

This feels more relatable. The main cast of characters are not 2 dimensional cutouts and they don't make plot device dumb choices. The main protagonist is clever, funny, and you do root for him and the characters he encounters.

The ending is satisfying with a good hook for the follow up. Another reviewer chastised the ending, but in the scope of the setting, it felt justified to me and potentially leading to even more character development in the next volume in the series.

The narrator does a fantastic job. I was never confused as to which character was speaking. so good in fact, if I was on the fence about a title and saw this narrator, I'd take the chance.

if I had to make a comparison on the theme: Ready Player One meets Sword Art Online but with less teenage angst. I will definitely be getting the next installment when it's released

Very good!!

Bought this on a whim for something to listen to while waiting for another book to come out, and so happy I did! Very well done characters flushed out just the right amount to make them all interesting without getting to bogged down in back story. The magic system is VERY well thought out!! Reminds me of the Dresden files with explaining how and why the magic works instead of a generic fireball or lightning spell. 5 stars!!!

Lots of fun

good story well told with loads of interesting ways to abuse a system...
and abuse is right, because the blurb might say that the difficulty is impossible, but it feels more like easy, this is a book about a overpowered MC that's hyper capable even when presented otherwise and if a challenge requires something specific they either got it 5 min ago or know where to find it...
still, the journey is fun as is the combat, so if you are in the mood for a MC that wins at everything, this is the book for you...

even the Narrator is extremely talented and his many voices stays so constant that you know who is talking with it being said and his female voices even made me forget it was a single narrator book

Audio worth the wait

I could wait for this audiobook to be available. But I’m glad that I did and didn’t just get the kindle version. The story was humorous and had a good flow with enjoyable characters.

its oky...a bit of a spoilr

the comady felt very persnoles but still was oky the story is oky...ahhh spoilrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i didnt like the ending feels cheap like an easy way for the ahutor to make the mc grind all over agin and i really dont like the fairys they feel kinda stuped the book feelt slow the gods.. or what ever the run the system are very paty and act like kids many of the sid chrecters are anoying and i dont understnd why he didnt laeve them at no point the mc needed anyone and all the time they treat him bad or anoying or takeing stuff they got becues of him or thanks for him or from him and not gving a care or thanks that he saves all of them soo many times the feel so much more like a handecap more so than him losing his leg at the start from someting stupied they feel so much more like a handecap ... and him losing his leg at the start feels like the ahutor way of having easy bad comday or giving his mc a harder time and thr sid charecters to
and thats it overall the book well was oky but im not going to run to buy the next one.

Super Fun Read!

I had so much fun with this book! It's witty, funny, and cleverly done. The pop culture references were awesome. I had a good number of laugh-out-loud moments.

Steve Campbell did a super awesome job with this one! His performance just made everything better.

Great story, terrible ending

If you’re going into this book looking for a story about the main character progressing in strength (which most litrpg books are about) you will likely enjoy this book right up until the end. At which point you will become just as furious as I was.

Spoilers! Spoilers! Spoilers!




I’m giving one spoiler which I wish I had been told before I started this book. The main character is stripped of all his power and the system that everyone else has. He is not rewarded at all for anything he achieves. He is punished.

Solid 4/5

Good story, it includes a detailed progression system and a variety of different classes.

All characters including the MC show growth from the start to the end of the book.

Story contains some humor but it is throughly entertaining from start to finish.

I will be getting the next book as I'm interested to see what will happen next

Little Gritty, Some humor and creative LitRPG-lite

Enjoyable, none-standard 'hero' story with some light LitRPG elements.

The MC is more 'grown-up' that a lot of other story I've read, which was very enjoyable. No panicky or self important, ass for a MC in this story. And not just the MC is written that way, most side characters have some depth to them (particularly for a self-published story). The side characters, while not always 'likeable', in this story don't need to be, each person has their good and bad sides.

Towards the end, the writing of the story is a bit more scuffed (less well edited maybe), the pace of events is still high but bit more clumsy in descriptions and character actions.

I also read reviews on this books about people were very upset by a plot twist. I can see that, but honestly I feel it fits within story, if you think how the main character interacts with the 'generic system'. Some people may have wanted a more 'generic' LitRPG system in that sense, this series is more than that.

original honest

I've listen to loads of litrpg and ok the leveling been integrated into a new world and the use of a system is very similar. But the narrative, character development and feel of the book is more like fantasy. I totally enjoyed it. I think you will too.

On par with other great LitRPG novels

It was a great read. The story hooked me in and reminded me of a similar concept story "The Prince has no pants"

Definitely looking forward to book 2

Bit of a roller coaster

Bit of a ride emotional level wise but it keeps you invested cant wait to see how book 2 goes especially since the way this was written means you really cant predict anything big picture but if the style holds true should be excellent

An ebjoyable listen that stumbles the finish.

Spoilerish.

It was an enjoyable arc until after the fire titan and world turtle fight where instead of dealing with the crushing consequences of being trapped and realising that they missed their window of oppotunity to win. jeb immediately comes up with a way to do the impossible commences a time skip and wins.... then its undercut by a random God influencing the tutorial you could have easily fit in a farming sequence to level 50 and the dystopian vibe was kinda ruined when they were allowed to openly subvert the tutorial.

The ending just came off as rushed and not alot of character development was achieved, maybe its saved for the second book but overall the start of the series should involve a bit more of everything.

Reserving my opinion for book 2.
