Publisher's Summary

What do you have when you blend a pinch of LitRPG, a touch of farming simulator, a sprinkle of epic fantasy, a whole cup of Isekai, and a dash of Home Alone? You have Arnold’s life.

Accidentally murdered by a cleric in another universe during a botched resurrection, Arnold, a semi-pro gamer, wakes upon an altar to find himself incarnated into the overweight body of a farmer who could have been his fatter twin. He’s not the hero. He’s not the villain. He’s certainly not the chosen one who is there to save the world. He’s a clerical error.

It could be a bad joke, but apparently, it happens so often that they have a standard procedure for returning you. That standard procedure doesn't apply to Arnold.

Now stuck on a new Earth, in a new universe, with no way home, Arnold must use his gaming skills to figure out how to level his farmer class to 100 and gain a second class which doesn't make him want to beat his head against the wall. There is just one small problem: Farmers don't gain experience from killing monsters. Like at all.

Follow Arnold on his hilarious journey as he stubbornly comes to grips with his new reality and tries to change his destiny from that of your typical farmer.

Oh, Great! Another killer Travis Baldree LitRPG

This is such an unusual take on the genre, I had so much fun with it, and as always, Travis' dulcet tones made it 100x better. Cannot wait to hear more from this author!!

Not bad, but not as good as the hype suggests.

I normally try to write well rounded and fully explained reviews, but I don’t have that in me right now. Apologies in advance for this abbreviated review...

This book is worth the credit, but based on the reviews so far you’d think it was the best new Gamelit series to come out this year... It’s not. This is an entertaining book that has some interesting points, but its MC can be annoying and often does and says things for plot reasons rather than because it’s something the character would actually do.

There are also pacing and plotting issues, clarity problems, and odd jumps in the timeline.

So really, I’m saying this audiobook is better than most of the drivel that needs to be sorted through in the LitRPG/Gamelit genre, and you should probably spend the credit. Just don’t let the irrationally inflated ratings set your expectations too high.

A very enjoyable LITRPG

I only give reviews for books that I enjoy and would reread/relisten to. This means that I almost exclusively rate books 5 stars. That does not mean that this book is a masterwork. It does mean the I enjoyed the story and would love for the author to be able to write more. Give it a listen if you’re a fan of the genre as it is definitely better than a majority of what gets published as LITRPG. I loved Travis Baldree’s narration as always. He is, in my opinion, one of the best in the business.

Surprisingly, I now need more of this

I dance around this book for a long time then finally took a chance. I really enjoyed it. This was a mix of lots of niches that I liked alone, but together it was awesome and now I feel like there needs to be so much more of this.

tons of fun!

This was a great less-crunchy litrpg. What a fun and novel game system! I don't know that I've listened to anything else particularly close to it Interesting mechanics, interesting world, and great characters abound. Travis Baldree did masterful job as well.

Expected a background book, couldnt put it down.

So yeah,

I expected to be a book I'd listen to when playing games, working or when traveling. I couldnt put the damn thing down.

Its well written, the characters are believable, the story is engaging.

The Summary does not do this book justice.

Very interesting litrpg

Honestly, great little story. I listen to a ton of litrpgs and this one was just what I needed. No, its not going to be high fantasy or particularly amazing, but it has a semi-unique idea that is implemented very well.

If you're on the fence! JUST DO IT!!!!

This book in my opinion is a gem! The gem of 2021!

It has everything you could ever want in a LITRPG. It's funny (not ha ha funny but roll off your seat full belly laugh funny) it's got a great plot. It has an interesting MC and a great companion.

I can't wait for book 2!

Great twist on a fun concept

Honestly can't recommend this enough for any litRPG fan - aside from being entertaining, it managed to keep me gripped throughout the entire runtime. Will definitely be back for the sequel!

Excellent book and creative idea

The story is different from the usual litrpg and a most enjoyable experience. There is humour, action, some fantastic world building and the pace is good.

The narrator is wonderful.

I can't wait for the next book.

Just wow! Awesome

I definitely didn't expect that amazing story. the silly name and image put me off buying. but a read some of the reviews and decided to give it a chance.

What an amazing listen! Great pacing, Good characters with individual personality's, hilarious situations that don't take away from the story.

as someone else but in their review that convinced me to buy... An absolute gem of 2021

I NEED book 2!

New angle

it's pretty traditional compared to other lit-rpg books but this one takes it a different route. Other comments say its really funny, I don't agree but still made me smile. Descriptions are good and solid keppt me at the edge of my seat at times, liked the charakters and good plot line.

Oh, Great! A farmer who hates farming

I didn't think I would like it, and I was proven wrong.
Came because of Travis Baldree, stayed because of the story.
This book was a lot of fun.

Entertaining at times, but mostly frustrating

The narrator does a superb job as always.

As for the story the premise is new and interesting but flawed in execution. The cliffhanger at the end ruins it, and the climax just peters out.

Most of the progression that the MC gains/receives feels as it is never used. As a self proclaimed pro-gamer in almost a year and a half he cannot grasp the concept that he needs to learn this world's rules to achieve his goals. His constant childis approach to this topic is grating, and while he comes to a logical conclusion that is quite obvious it is far too late in the story.

Different

I took a punt on this book for the title alone and I was not disappointed. A very inventive and interesting story, good characters and the potential for an ever expanding world is very exciting. Just when you think you've explored all the element of LitRPG, one come along and surprises you! I highly recommend! Travis Baldree is excellent as always.

Farmer no farm

Each chapter is set days/weeks/months apart, sometimes it tells you but most time you assume through the summary of the start of every chapter, gives the story an odd pace.

Also alot of the decisions by the author left me asking why..

spoiler....


He (MC) has leverage agaisnt the kings daughter, but cant use that to ask the king to tell the queen to F%$* off.....because at this point they have a vendetta agaisnt each other..
The story just cuts off .... the mark was not compensation don't justify that trash...

The MC gets exp early to lvl too 100 but instead buys permanent buffs to increase his stats instead of using it... unjustified never explained why.. he did sell some but not the whole 400k


And biggest spoiler of them all for me was the start, MC is in a high position with family meaning he will always be safe with family no consequences.. which means he probably created his own king system to replace the current one, via people doing tasks to be paid with experience for task.. breaking the roles they were born into....

Not engaging

Im only 3 hours in and I have to stop there. Theres no reason to care about the character or the story, ive been listening to a few LITRPG type books lately (like dungeon crawler carl and mayor of noobtown) which have likable characters, hooking storylines, engaging relationships etc. and this book has left me with little to enjoy or look forward to so far. It might get better but I wont be finding out.

Brilliant!

This well written account of Arnold’s reincarnation as a farmer, provides many twists and turns to what should be a quiet life. He has a unique way of getting around his obstacles, which provide many laugh out loud moments for the reader! Looking forward to the next book, please!

Great story

Was an intriguing story that captured my attention from start to finish. Definitely worth it if you enjoy lit rpg and would put it in my top 10 for the genre.
