Reincarnation,- Common Sense from that Prior Life

First, I love LitRPG. It's why I got this book. Second, I love reincarnation fantasy. This was, on the surface, going to be the best of both worlds. The problem with the actual book is, it doesn't seem to be either.

Yes, the world of the book and the people in it live with some "System". And yes, the main character dies and reincarnates into this new world. But at no point do these things actually matter, at least before I gave up a few hours before the end of the book(minor spoilers ahead).

First, the LitRPG elements. The characters do have stats. Speed, Strength, Dexterity, Vitality, etc. But these stats don't seem to DO anything. At one point, despite not investing any points into strength whatsoever, the main character is still able to lift a boy over her shoulders at 14 and run out of a burning house. She just *wanted* to be able to, so she could despite her abysmal physical stats.

The leveling doesn't make sense either. Besides there not actually being anything like experience points(skills and classes seems to level arbitrarily), the levels for skills don't seem to make much of a difference. With Running at Level 1, the main character wasn't allowed in the "fast lane" for people with high movement speed. With Running at Level 60... the main character is still too slow to be in the fast lane. Didn't make any sense. Same for the other skills, the levels didn't seem to have any effect whatsoever, and the author doesn't describe increased effects either.

Lastly, despite being reincarnated with her teenage memories mostly intact, the main character acts like a regular child in her new life. Playing with other children her age. Throwing tantrums, making rash decisions, and just being completely unaware of her situation. It didn't make any sense. There was no reason to make this a reincarnation fantasy if her prior life didn't actually carry through into the new one.

With all that being said, it's a fine performance if you're desperate for something to listen to. Just hope this review allows someone to go into it with eyes open

a strong woman character

Finally a strong woman character and I was excited to give this to my daughter, but of course she can't be straight. Is it at all possible to have a MC female that is straight.

amateurish writing

The author needs to brush up on some of the principles of storytelling.

The author heavily relies on expositional monologue to impart information which isn't even plot relevant. The worst offender being the System Day, a very long scene which could have been reduced down to the very last part where they girls were forced to leave showing how woman are treated badly.

The story overall is meandering and lacks coherent direction. The MC doesn't do anything, they simply react to things happening around them.

really enjoyed this one.

to keep this short, it was a fun story with a decent level of realism that allow my suspension of disbelief to easily take and made me want to hear more. The timeline kills me in alot of stories, to much happening to fast or outside even mild rational pacing, but not here. the timeline feels organic and considered.

the narrator did an excellent job balancing the behaviors and gave enough inflection that the MCs differnt stages felt real.

loved it.

so first off. the system notification got to give the narrator props for that. amazing job. also they get annoying at times but i understand the need for them narrator makes it good.

spoiler* the "lesbian comment" well theres only 1 mention and thats in book 3 i beleive. not much happened.

I have not finished this series of books currently moving to book 4. i have however enjoyed her growth from infant to 18 now.

there was a comment that said she acts like a kid even though she remembers things. the auther wrote in when MC says, Even though i have this knowledge starting from infancy i was not able to do much and when you're treated like a kid you tend to act like one.

I just want to say thanks to the author for an amazing series and the Narrator for a wonderful performance!

Really lovely female led Isekai

A very real solid feeling female led isekai audiobook. It showcased some of the darker and lighter sides of being reborn in another world and culture. Had the classic isekai level up vibes. Will continue to listen for sure :)

Great rebirth Isekai LitRPG

This book really takes a unique approach when it comes to coming back with your memories intact as a baby, and I think it worked really well and addressed a number of issues with that trope! I especially liked how immature the MC is at a young age because maturity is related to brain development as well as memories. I felt the particular way the author went about the setting/premise made for a fantastic start, and I can't wait to listen to the 3rd book when it comes out (immediately listened to the second book after the first, and listened to both pretty much straight through).

Good game story

Great story. I like that it is gamey but doesn't consistently spend 10 minuts going through the stats including every single piece of armor. It still shows stats but much shorter. The narrator also does a great job of capturing the main character's wonder about the world.

Very childish MC

Couldn’t get past chapter 10. With a supposed reincarnated MC that’s has lived for about 25+ years at this point she behaves very erratic and childish, which at this point she is still 8. But what’s the point of the whole reincarnation plot if she’s going to behave like the child she is?

All in all very irritating point of view from the main character which prevents some of the more interesting world building come to light.
