Still not sure about this one

I really enjoyed the premise of the story, and thought the magic system was interesting. The MC's relationships and interactions throughout the book are also well done. The dialogue is the only real downside, and although it is distracting is not a dealbreaker for the next book. Every conversation is basically 'that's a great question' or'wow, you are amazing'. The only other issue is the combat. You have no sense of time or space with how it is occurring. Overall, I recommend this one for light listening or background noise.

fairly basic story but good overall

the authors other series are better in my opinion. story was basic, told well but no twists or turns or much excitement tbh. not bad but not really good either. I'll probably pick up the other books in the series at some point but they're not high on my wish list

fight scenes should have matched the sex....

I wish he would have put the same effort into the rest of the book as he did into the sex scenes..

Tried to get through, but got smacked in the face

I should’ve noticed the “other recommended” book covers... Tried to get through it, but it really should advertise for mature audiences only.

meh

the story line was a little weird to follow, almost like a young adult (13-14 years of age ish) story line with adult content. There were times while listening that I was asking myself "okay, but why?" do to world mechanics, the choice of main character being chosen to do his role by the other characters, and story progression based off of assumptions from characters that were so blatant that it wasn't even funny.

not what I was expecting

I was hoping for a decent isekai, but this more about music than swords & magic

meh

characters are not believable or relatable. and are exceedingly chill about what is going on around him, no mystery

Good and easy feel good book

I'm usually pretty sceptical and this book has a lot of bad reviews. But I like the book. Its little childish and predictable. But is well written and have a feel good feeling. Some nice harem aswell. It should be more and use to develop char and their relationships. I like it!

same 2d guy getting praise for nothing

its the same generic most boring version of the male fantasy they could of taken anyone who had been to a music school and replaced then with our guy who just goes along with anything anyone ever asks of him also his interactions with women who actually blushes when a women touches his arm
