The MC moves from being crippled in the real world and in game to being a gamer who is on an escalating path to power and riches. He is driven to to save his family. However, there is so much he does not know, a lack that may bring all of his efforts and achievements to naught.
While the cliffhanger ending is NOT appreciated, it does indicate that the intensity of this tale is about to ramp up significantly.
A fun and entertaining read. I am now looking forward to the next in the series.
Dodge Tank takes what is to me a unique idea, and spins it into a believable story. The start of the book (the first couple chapters) to me sets the characters in my mind, and gives me an expectation of them in the future. Very easy to see the MC is very local when he commits, and tries to believe the best in people. Once the real story starts spinning up, you see a character that is very, to me, driven to succeed, regardless of what anyone else might say or thing. His best friend stands behind him and pushes him to be better.
Did it have slow points? Yes. Was it intrusive/hard to stick with? No. The slow spots led into the next within a few pages. The slow spots were necessary to fill in some holes that didn't need a chapter dedicated to them, but did occasionally affect the page of the story.
The story itself is fairly typical of the genre of full immersion. The 'game' behind it drew me in, and I found myself thinking back to DnD adventures with friends. I like the twists, I like the danger, and I just really enjoyed the story. I really hope there is a sequel at some point, just to see how these players and friends progress. Overall, I think this was an enjoyable read!
-The max level in the game is 85 and once the MC get's started on his way towards being a "Dodge Tank" he's blazing through said levels, a fact i liked because in stead of focusing on the level grind for the entire series we get mostly the "meat" from now on and less "chaff".
-Even with the OP spell he get's at the start the MC is not in fact untouchable, he still has his weaknesses and struggles both in game and outside of.
-I decided to give the book 5/5 on account of my enjoyment since the half point and the great set up in the ending for a promising second book.
*A Thing worth mentioning:
Usually LitRPG's has some crafting/building involved, some even focus heavily on one or both, this book mentions only crafting and it really is just in passing, It didn't bother me none and it does make sense because of the plot and the constant rush for levels and credits, still worth mentioning though.
Good story with an interesting twist
Characters are relatable even when not fully fleshed out
Feels a bit rushed
Characters could use a bit more back story and fleshing out
Some grammatical and spelling mistakes though those can easily be fixed with a re-edit
Overall: A great story and a quite a bit of fun to read.
