The story on the whole is very talkie. Like, 40% of the novel is dialogue or summary of some kind. There’s a great opening, that got me hooked by the 3% mark, but the MC doesn’t get into the game until the 12% and doesn’t go full immersion till 21% mark. Just about everything between 3 and 12% is almost entirely dialogue. And while there are interesting speculative thoughts and some game mechanic descriptions, it’s a lot of talking, and that may turn off some readers hoping for more action.
Once in the game, the MC has as couple neat fights but the first half of the story is focuses on crafting and a little romance. It’s great if you like that kind of stuff, but not if you’re looking for an action story. I’m a big fan of crafting and world building and this part has that in spades.
The last half of the story gets a bit more action oriented. However, in all honesty combat isn’t the strong suit of the story. Crafting, dialogue, punny humor, interpersonal relationships, and world building is. So the attempts to kill the MC for a bounty (which doesn’t really make sense anyways), almost feel like interruptions to an otherwise fun slice of life story.
Overall, I liked the story but it dropped what I liked the best about it in the 2nd half. But it is still an nice crafting story with an good punny sense of humor.
Score: 6 out of 10
I read this in KU and then purchased a copy! I expect to be re-reading this again a couple of years down the road. I'm looking forward to the next installment in this series.
There were several situations that felt "unreal". The MC, at a glance, falls madly in love, though apparently he'd felt nothing similar before. This coupled with his immediate acceptance of NPC's as "real" was too abrupt a transition. Similarly, and without throwing in spoilers, at about mid-book a life shaking moment (for most) occurs. The MC immediately accepts the situation, without question, doubt, or emotion. Though I appreciate the MC's maturity, this goes a bit beyond reason.
The game mechanics appear consistent, though overly complex. Too much on the character sheet, and without comparison to many other sheets, it doesn't tell the reader much beyond simply being numbers. The "UPs" do seem like a good idea.
As a note to the author in the area of grammar - punctuation, especially commas. Commas help the reader with the pacing of spoken sentences. Otherwise, sentences become flat and monotone. Commas are especially necessary after phrases...
I found the first part interesting , but had a hard time believing that somebody could so readily accept that they could not return to the real world, as well as a full AI that could become someone’s love interest. The mix of stats and real life did not sit well with me.
A lot more punctuation is needed as well!
- Game mechanics are vague at times. Ex: Hp Mp and Sp are not tracked consistently throughout the tale
-Lovely banter and play on words. The authors sense of humor is catching I enjoy the characters interactions and the unique names. Protect the Cook!
