Summary

Jeb Trapper tried to kill himself. The gun jammed.

Two months later, the vet is now participating in underground trials of ecstasy to treat his PTSD. Everything seems to be going great until:

>>>The System Has Been Installed<<<

Jeb is teleported into a tutorial, along with everyone else on Earth. Now, he has to choose the level of difficulty. There's just one problem: He's high as a kite, and nothing seems impossible.

Solid 4/5

Good story, it includes a detailed progression system and a variety of different classes.

All characters including the MC show growth from the start to the end of the book.

Story contains some humor but it is throughly entertaining from start to finish.

I will be getting the next book as I'm interested to see what will happen next

This is it!

This is the most enjoyable listen I have had in a long time.

I have unfortunately been labeled a lunatic by my neighbors. Me sitting on my balcony cackling madly with laughter with no-one close-by.
But who cares.

I usually go by, “If a book makes you feel something then it is a keeper”. This book have kept a foolish grin on my face, from start to finish.

The narration by Steve Campbell.
Hard to describe in words. This is what you want out of a storyteller. Just give him 40 more years and you have Gandalf sitting around the fire telling stories to a spellbound audience.

If there is something i don’t like then it is the LitRPG summery of (skills usually) inventory. If you read it yourself then it is ok, since you can just skimmer thou it. But to listen to the summery is just annoying.
Fortunately there is a pretty limited amount of it.

Perfectly decent Progression book

Good book with a decent cast of characters. The system is very straightforward and none of the concepts are overly complex. I enjoyed a lot of the character interactions especially some unexpected mature decisions made by the MC.

Why not 5/5 for story? Because it felt a bit formulaic. While the boom itself was really enjoyable it was a bit of a repackaging of things I've seen before in the genre. It's still miles ahead of most books in the System Apocalypse genre.

I'm tempted to read the rest of the series and the narration was great.

Enjoyable

The story is imaginative and fast paced. LITRPG in a real world, not a simulation. The author neatly avoids the LITRPG trap of over powered heroes. Recommended.

BEWARE: author dropped two novels at 1000+ pages

Beware Macronomicon have dropped at least two novels already because of "creative crisis". You can check them out on RR.
Other than that he is a very good author :D
The novel like always funny, witty and pervy :3
Voice acting is superb too.
VERY GOOD!

Little Gritty, Some humor and creative LitRPG-lite

Enjoyable, none-standard 'hero' story with some light LitRPG elements.

The MC is more 'grown-up' that a lot of other story I've read, which was very enjoyable. No panicky or self important, ass for a MC in this story. And not just the MC is written that way, most side characters have some depth to them (particularly for a self-published story). The side characters, while not always 'likeable', in this story don't need to be, each person has their good and bad sides.

Towards the end, the writing of the story is a bit more scuffed (less well edited maybe), the pace of events is still high but bit more clumsy in descriptions and character actions.

I also read reviews on this books about people were very upset by a plot twist. I can see that, but honestly I feel it fits within story, if you think how the main character interacts with the 'generic system'. Some people may have wanted a more 'generic' LitRPG system in that sense, this series is more than that.

original honest

I've listen to loads of litrpg and ok the leveling been integrated into a new world and the use of a system is very similar. But the narrative, character development and feel of the book is more like fantasy. I totally enjoyed it. I think you will too.

On par with other great LitRPG novels

It was a great read. The story hooked me in and reminded me of a similar concept story "The Prince has no pants"

Definitely looking forward to book 2

It was great, till the end

I loved this book, it was great, except the last part

*Spoilers*
.
.

.
.

When Jeb is confronted by the council and he loses all his powers and then wakes up on the new earth with no power, and the implication from the 2nd book's description showing that Jeb doesn't have his power back? What was the point of him earning all that he did. Why even both having him earn any power if you're just gonna strip it away, and the fact that you basically took away so much of his character development away. it actually makes me want to avoid the 2nd book when it comes out.

You don't spend an entire book building up on a character and their power just to literally take it all away all, especially when there were 5 others who committed the same "crime" but they didn't get this punishment.

Finally, a non harem litrpg with character growth

This genre is so overdone right now with generic puberty driven character motivations. Nothing wrong with that except it makes it difficult to find a decent story not clogged with clumsy (usually cringey) sex scenes.

This feels more relatable. The main cast of characters are not 2 dimensional cutouts and they don't make plot device dumb choices. The main protagonist is clever, funny, and you do root for him and the characters he encounters.

The ending is satisfying with a good hook for the follow up. Another reviewer chastised the ending, but in the scope of the setting, it felt justified to me and potentially leading to even more character development in the next volume in the series.

The narrator does a fantastic job. I was never confused as to which character was speaking. so good in fact, if I was on the fence about a title and saw this narrator, I'd take the chance.

if I had to make a comparison on the theme: Ready Player One meets Sword Art Online but with less teenage angst. I will definitely be getting the next installment when it's released

Very good!!

Bought this on a whim for something to listen to while waiting for another book to come out, and so happy I did! Very well done characters flushed out just the right amount to make them all interesting without getting to bogged down in back story. The magic system is VERY well thought out!! Reminds me of the Dresden files with explaining how and why the magic works instead of a generic fireball or lightning spell. 5 stars!!!

Great story, terrible ending

If you’re going into this book looking for a story about the main character progressing in strength (which most litrpg books are about) you will likely enjoy this book right up until the end. At which point you will become just as furious as I was.

Spoilers! Spoilers! Spoilers!




I’m giving one spoiler which I wish I had been told before I started this book. The main character is stripped of all his power and the system that everyone else has. He is not rewarded at all for anything he achieves. He is punished.

Audio worth the wait

I could wait for this audiobook to be available. But I’m glad that I did and didn’t just get the kindle version. The story was humorous and had a good flow with enjoyable characters.

Lots of fun

good story well told with loads of interesting ways to abuse a system...
and abuse is right, because the blurb might say that the difficulty is impossible, but it feels more like easy, this is a book about a overpowered MC that's hyper capable even when presented otherwise and if a challenge requires something specific they either got it 5 min ago or know where to find it...
still, the journey is fun as is the combat, so if you are in the mood for a MC that wins at everything, this is the book for you...

even the Narrator is extremely talented and his many voices stays so constant that you know who is talking with it being said and his female voices even made me forget it was a single narrator book

the comady felt very persnoles but still was oky the story is oky...ahhh spoilrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i didnt like the ending feels cheap like an easy way for the ahutor to make the mc grind all over agin and i really dont like the fairys they feel kinda stuped the book feelt slow the gods.. or what ever the run the system are very paty and act like kids many of the sid chrecters are anoying and i dont understnd why he didnt laeve them at no point the mc needed anyone and all the time they treat him bad or anoying or takeing stuff they got becues of him or thanks for him or from him and not gving a care or thanks that he saves all of them soo many times the feel so much more like a handecap more so than him losing his leg at the start from someting stupied they feel so much more like a handecap ... and him losing his leg at the start feels like the ahutor way of having easy bad comday or giving his mc a harder time and thr sid charecters to
and thats it overall the book well was oky but im not going to run to buy the next one.

srry for the misspelling

Highly Recommend!!!

Wow! I really enjoyed this book. I can usually figure out how a book will end beforehand, but this one kept me on my toes (in a good way). The author's approach to the magic system made this a fun and interesting read (or in my case listen) from start to finish.

The voice actor for the audiobook did a really good job as well. His pacing felt natural. He voiced the book in a way that brought the characters to life and made the story feel even more immersive.

Love this series, couldn’t wait so got kindle for remaining Books

I really enjoyed this series. I liked it so much that after listening to the first I ended up getting kindle versions so I can read the next two books in the series.

Anxiously awaiting audible versions still as this is a nice listen while I go about my day.
