Publisher's Summary

Life isn't a game. Well, maybe it is now.

Every day is the same for Joseph: Study, go to class, repeat. He can't help wondering what it's all for; who it's all for? Life is dull, and there's no prospect of that changing. Is some excitement too much to ask for?

"Get to safety if you wish to survive!"

Joseph's prayers are answered, but not in a way he could ever have expected. Goblins, ghouls, kobolds, and a myriad of monsters and mythical creatures have spawned all over the college campus and beyond. The carnage is shocking.

If he's going to survive the RPG apocalypse, Joseph is going to have to figure out the new rules fast. And if it's wrong to feel so alive...when so many other people have died?

Too many stat pages

Excellent orator

Good writing except deciding how its read in one regard.

Staus page over and over and over till i just started skipping 60 seconds every time. Don't need or want to hear full character sheet 4 times in 1 chapter. Much cleaner to say i added 3 to Intelligence bringing it up to 17.

Rediculous going to start battle (read full character and skill list) mid battle (read character sheet) late battle (read character sheet) win battle (READ CHARACTER SHEET)...

more low key?

I don't know how to explain it but this seemed more low-key or not intense I guess, as other litrpgs and in some ways more realistic but also not as emotion intensive so it is a nice, more relaxing listen.
Drama still happens and it is not happy go lucky. it is a strange in between and I think a good litrpgs for newcomers to the genre.

This is just so so and disappointing.

This was disappointing. I felt like I was sitting through someone’s description of their last night RPG game. Just like someone’s vacation slideshow that you’re not interested in. The main character is like some average player that you might read about on the web blog. Nothing extraordinary, nothing special, nothing to stand out, very boring. It’s almost as if the author decided to turn one of his late night gaming sessions into a novel. The only thing interesting about this book is that it went from a RPG apocalypse to something almost like Isekai adventure story. That was a neat twist on the standard apocalypse story. It’s too bad I had high hopes for the story especially when it twisted to become an Isekai type story but the main character is just too plain with nothing outstanding about him and he seems to be a bit of a loser. Sorry but there are just too many good stories out there for me to waste anymore of my time on this one. If I just wanted to read about an ordinary person then I can find much better writers and story weavers, that can portray that type of storyline.

The only reason I gave this story two stars instead of one, is because of that twist in the middle of switching story types. Overall it improved story and it was a clever twist.

Decent read

Overall this was a good book. The biggest issue is the CONSTANT overuse of stat pages. It’s like the author just put so many in there to help meet a word count quota.

Good book

I thought this was a fun book that I believe the listener will enjoy immensely. Oddly one of the best things this book highlight is how the characters are not invincible, and death will come for a character. Overall, this book is well worth the credit, and I look forward to the next book.
