Short, expensive, vague, and cringworthy.

after reading dungeon born book 1 I was hungry for some more litrpg novels of the sentient dungeon variety. In looking around for similar novels I found the slime dungeon, which was being heavily used as a comparison online. The slime dungeon, as I understand had begun it's writing process before dungeon born and is widely considered to be the more original story. I was excited to see what a book that took this long to release would bring. (especially since the second dungeon born book is already available on kindle) I decided to check it out and was quite dissapointed.

First, even as a new release, a 25 dollar price tag for a book this short is already a mark against it. as an audiobook I'd hope for it to at least make it through a work day.

Second, I find the actual story severely lacking in details and can't seem to decide whether to be satirical litrpg comedy or gritty fantasy epic. The relationship between the dungeon and his sprite feels so hamfisted and awkward. The few jokes in there dialogue are weird and oddly oversexualized for a magical being speaking to a sentient gemstone. The whole mommy/daddy thing is super cringy.

Third. The villain never seems to be a sincere threat. His convoluted plan makes no sense when he could have easily just waltzed to the boss room and accomplished his goals within the first 5 chapters. it's sheer dumb luck (i.e. deus ex machina) that the one person who could stop him was included the day he decided to enact his "master plan".

There are good parts. The slime evolutions are interesting. but not a lot of jokes. not a lot of action. not much detail in general about the world and how magic works there.

In all I enjoyed it, but I know theirs a book out there that goes into much better detail about pretty much everything and has a much better natural evolution of the characters and the story arc. guess I'll just have to wait for dungeon born book 2.

A different spin on what is becomming a trope.

At the start of this book I was somewhat disappointed. Having read "Dungeon Born" recently I found so many of the same points hit that I started to think it was just copying the story from that. Doing a bit of research I found out this actually preceded that book by a handful of months and my anger reversed. Upon further research I found a smattering of other books that also followed a sentient dungeon and I am now left scratching my head trying to figure out when exactly this became a trope and where it came from. With all of that confusion aside the book is a solid fun read. Some parts seem a bit forced like the mommy daddy thing(it'll make sense when you get there) coming out of nowhere and just getting steamrolled into sticking. Also I cant really think of anything that stuck out as memorably hilarious. All the same I cant say I didn't enjoy the book.

Amatuer Writing, Amateur Voice Actor.

So despite the negative reviews, I love pixies so I thought I would give this a try on the off chance the pixie was done right. It wasnt.

For the most part the pixie's writing was like a poor attempt at being cute, by someone with only a passing knowledge of the concept. Instead of a consistent 'cuteness' of the pixie type that walks the edge of innocent childlike and mischievious adult. The pixie would instead be straight and dull then just randomly try and do something cute. Which combined with the poor voice acting quality (really should have had a female narrator I think), resulted in stilted scenes with a cringeworthy sound. Like a bad roleplayer suddenly remembering his character is supposed to be cute so badly and over compensating.

It took me a while but I realized the dungeon was supposed to be cute as well. I think the goal was to look like two children playing house. Its a goal that was failed badly. I think the problem is best exemplified by the shelf scene. It wasnt a funny gag to begin with but the writer royally screwed it up by the fact the words to the joke, could not be applied to setting up a shelf.

That would have dropped it to 4 stars alone. Since it doesnt happen too often. The books shortness takes it down another star. What dropped it the final star to 2 stars was when it decided to arbitarily skip some levels of progression, just to shove some animesque wolf girls into the dungeon. Until that point there was still the enjoyment of watching the dungeon progress.

Simple but good.

A generally good book. Not a lot of depth going on here though.

It's what you would expect from an authors very first book. No side plots, no real character development and no twists or turns. Just "here are the good guys. Here is generally how the world works. Here's a damsel in destress. Here's a bad guy. Yaaaay they stopped the bad guy!. The end".

It's not a bad book, I liked it. I just wish it was fuller, if that makes sense.

i loved it

i listen to a lot of dungeon stories, and this one wasn’t filled with too much information. the story though used by many, was fairly fresh. I didn’t care much for the perception of attraction between animals and non-animals, but drop the animals face for cute humans face and I would have let it slide. all in all, good read if not a bit short. almost all male readers do come up short when doing female cast.

Cringey dialogue and too much sexual assault talk

Alot of the dialogue feels unnatural. The characters don't sound like they are talking to actual people, they sometimes sound like they are monologing in an old play. The exception is the dungeon, which generally sounds like a person, ironically.

One of the baddies has a rape kink and talks about it. A lot. We get it, you enjoy sexually assaulting people and driving them to mentally snap. Saying it every scene he is in will only make the book sound creepy and cringey. No one likes rapists and we don't need to be reminded about his sexual tendencies whenever we see him.

The voice actor was fine, but his female voices were kind of awkward. They all sounded like they were trying to be breathy and...seductive? I'm not entirely sure, but it didn't sound d particularly good.

The story was alright, but I'm not a huge fan of large, nation-spanning, God plots in first books. Some people are, not my cup of tea.

pretty good.

It's written in simple prose, but some themes are a little mature. parental guidance suggested.

A Unique Dungeon building story

Loved the flow and characters. I also loved the mysteries that had been so seamlessly sewn in.

Perservere, past the prologue.

Once you pass the 4 minute prologue the narrator stops sounding like Shatner's spoken word version of Rocketman. Then the story picks up.

Ok, if a bit basic

If you've ever read any other dungeon core like story, this one will not really stand out.

But aside from a few writing errors and odd word usage, its not terrible.

Story also start pretty slow, and with this book also being pretty short, things only start to pick up pas the half way mark.

If you can overlook a few inconsistencies and relatively simple characterization there is a beginning of an interesting story here.
