Publisher's Summary

[I was reborn too weak to be an adventurer, so I opened an item shop by the dungeon instead!]

Reborn into a fantastical RPG-system based world, Fresh is offered a second chance at life. Initially glad to have escaped her old existence, she quickly realizes that this new one might not be much better. Her new body is too frail to follow any grand dreams of adventure, her new mind is too dulled to allow any meticulous planning or thought, and this new, seemingly colorful, kind world is anything but.

Needing to find a way to survive in this horrible place, Fresh bands together with some unusual people as she undergoes an entirely unexpected challenge; running an item shop just outside of the dungeon!

The grammar. . .

they/them does not work. i see what is going on but i spent the first 2 hours confused about the number of people who saved the MC and made a party with her. i wanted to love this but i won't suffer the intentional grammar situation.

Couldn't finish

I was hoping it would be similar to Wandering Inn. A MC who is kinda dumb at times, but also brilliant and emotionally engaging. This MC is just dumb and cursed.

Slow start, but finished well

I wanted to give the story 5 stars, but I couldn’t. It was overall a good book, but Fresh was so whiny that it was distracting. I’m totally cool with an MC that’s underpowered and weak, and I liked the setting for the book, I just couldn’t get past the nonstop whining from Fresh. Will I read book 2? Yes, because I want to see where things go and how the characters and story continue to develop. I’m certainly not trying to bash an authors creation, I’m just sharing my thoughts and opinions. Overall it’s a good book, but it’s definitely not going to be everyone’s cup of tea.

If Reccettear was a book.

This book is filled with classic item shop cliches which endear it to those fans of the isekai genre.
If you loved the Reccetear game on Steam or shows like Reincarnated as a slime this book will be great.

Slight Language warning for the F word.

Fun and Quarky

Kinda like “2 broke girls” meets D&D. It’s a fun story if not a bit slow at times.

Good story bad mc

I actually liked the story but the mc is a bit to much acting like a child all the time. Some parts where done great and I actually laughed but rest was a bit hard.

some good some bad

The narrator was great. The story was interesting enough. The protagonist is a complete moron, and that is purposeful, not bad writing. I had trouble with her stupidity at times, making the story more frustrating than entertaining. Also her masked friend is an ass, their verbal abuse rivals the protagonists stupidity with similar results to my enjoyment.

The only real literary complaint I have is that the author can get a little too verbose in their descriptions.

Depending on my mood I may get the next installment when it comes out.

Abusive supporting character

Not bad, but very scattered plot. Main character is whiny and that gets old. However the supporting character is just a jerk. Can’t go two seconds without calling someone stupid.

I wish this book was a computer game!

This book is like playing Skyrim (other RPG available) watching an animé programme, playing DnD or reading a graphic novel all rolled into on. The author clearly has used their knowledge of the aforementioned to create this rich and amusing book.

It has a gripping story line that appeals to the serial side quester (I being one of them) who gets pulled along the main story line without knowing what is going on other than they like finding and making things.

My only resistance to fully loving this is that there is a repetitive note to the "Jubeleeeeeee" making me want to end their whining similar to inadvertently killing Lydia in each and every storyline of Skyrim. However, that repetitive edge perfectly personifies the true nature of any RPG; grind, repeat, grind, level up.

I fully advise anyone who loves all things light-hearted geek to get this audiobook, but also those who have never played or experienced RPG to listen to this. If you want to understand why your friends, family, colleague or child spend their whole time glued into an alternative reality, this book explains it all!

very enjoyable

A great addition to the library. The characters are well formed and individual. The narrator is well suited to the story. I'm off to find the next in the series.

This really grew on me

I gave this book a shot because I'm a sucker for this kind of world displacement premise, and while it took a bit to get me on board I ended up really enjoying it.

The main character isn't the brightest crayon in the box especially after being put in a body with very low (int and wis especially) stats. But I ended up not minding too much because while she did dumb things it didn't feel like those actions were only engineered to drive the plot but rather just in character.

The main charm for me is how plot threads slowly form around our protagonist building up a very interesting world.

The narration was very enjoyable too.

Overal, I'd only recommend picking this up if you're okay with a goo-brained leading lady and a slow building story.

Brace yourself

The protagonist is a gibbering idiot. How she manages to breathe by herself is somewhat of a mystery. I know she is supposed to be of low intelligence, but I found this really difficult to listen to at times. Overall the story is good and the performance and voice acting are great - but that main character!

Stupid and Angry stuck in a store.

The main characters are either stupid to a point it painful and behave like a 10-year-old kid, the other one is a mean ass that only yells, but how would not with that 10-year-old idiot close by all the time.

other than that it's a comfortable "slice of live" story.

outstanding

a great length of audiobook and it always keeps you interested. considering you have no reason to feel a connection to the MC yet you are drawn to a kind heart who is just struggling her best.

Great find.

I couldn't put it down. The only complaint I have is that the MC can be too whiny, wimpy and a little dumb at times, but it can be justified as it appears she is still young and immature, if you can overcome this or put yourself in a mindset to enjoy this, it's a very interesting story.
Also I never realized how much I liked tsunderes...
A really cozy story about friendship.
