Anthony has this great “Absorb” power that is SSS and is suppose to influence his whole training and growth; but except for three dungeons (his first, zombie, and Krampus) the power doesn’t come up again until the end. He spent 8 months or more in intensive dungeon training and he doesn’t even get one more power. And now his only skill is using a grenade launcher.
There is also some minor issues with editing. Math/numbers were sometimes off (he lost 1900 experience which dropped him from 8th level to 7th, but now needs ~4900 to get back up to 8th). In one chapter he discussing visiting Ireland and in the next he states he has never left the country and wanted to go to Mexico. He has made himself super smart with speed reading skills but refuses to read a manual that impacts his whole life.
The ending was also pretty weak. You built up this great completion and it is only a few rounds.
The reason it got three stars and not two was because of the original premise that was well done and the overall story was interesting.
The beginning started out as more story based, which I prefer, but soon moved in to almost a total RPG for quite a bit. Nothing but dungeons with no real character or story development. As we approach the end and the biggest competition, we blow through it quickly with almost no RPG elements. It was an odd transition. The end of the book left you feeling as though it was cut short, not a real ending but rather just a stopping point in a longer story. Not a cliffhanger, to be fair, but no real resolution either.
On a side note, and not a component of my 3 star review, just a notation, I almost didn't buy this book. Amazon has this listed under "Hispanic American Literature". I was concerned that this might indicate cultural references that I might not catch and significantly impact my ability to enjoy the book; this was not the case. The cultural aspects were integrated smoothly and were easy to keep up with. Just an FYI for anyone else who may be wavering based on that.
All in all I will still buy the next book. it was good, just not great.
Now to leave this off on a more positive note, the world building that Mejia put into this was really cool coming up with the different types of dungeon and all of the unique system features that are used to make this litrpg that much more different from any other litrpg out there
