    Started out amusing, but it s never a good thing when I constantly skip the sections of two of the three POVs the story is told from Even Darwin s chapters slowly dragged became less funny and interesting as time went on.

    I don t know, is it me Am I just hitting a burned out period I like most all of the LitRPG books I ve read, but after a while every genre spins out some duds LitRPG is a relatively new genre about involvement in Role Playing Games that somehow become real Of course when I say the genre is new it doesn t mean novels and stories of this ilk have been around a while for example Joel Rosenberg s Guardians of the Flame Series Still of late it seems the idea has been discovered by a wider audie I don t know, is it me Am I just hitting a burned out period I like most all of the LitRPG books I ve read, but after a while every genre spins out some duds LitRPG is a relatively new genre about involvement in Role Playing Games that somehow become real Of course when I say the genre is new it doesn t mean novels and stories of this ilk have been around a while for example Joel Rosenberg s Guardians of the Flame Series Still of late it seems the idea has been discovered by a wider audience People moved by magic or technology into a game for various reasons can make a great story.Here however the story is really just silly I suppose that was what was being aimed for When something gets popular parody can t be far behind.So if you d like the story of a warrior and his deadly spoonenjoy

    This novel starts out light hearted and funny, with a dash of intrigue as it quickly becomes clear that the Virtual World is a lotreal than people realize However, the story quickly starts dragging out and becomes a lot less interesting midway through Characters become stale or begin deviating in a nonsensical ways from their initial characterizations By the end of the story, there s no clean resolution to any of the plot lines and nothing is explained Volume 1 feelslike the firs This novel starts out light hearted and funny, with a dash of intrigue as it quickly becomes clear that the Virtual World is a lotreal than people realize However, the story quickly starts dragging out and becomes a lot less interesting midway through Characters become stale or begin deviating in a nonsensical ways from their initial characterizations By the end of the story, there s no clean resolution to any of the plot lines and nothing is explained Volume 1 feelslike the first 1 2 of a real novel fluffed out to the length of a full one Below will be a spoiler laden review of my main gripes with the story view spoiler 1 The MC s relationship with the country that summons him kind of disappears partway through the story After his immense accomplishment of wiping out the white horns, it just seems like the country s ruling class, including the king, just forgets about him and doesn t even bother keeping track of him King Qasin makes no attempt to get into contact with him and they don t meet or communicate in any way until the end of the story It felt extremely unnatural.2 King Qasin deviated way too much from his initial characterization When we first meet him, we get the feeling he s a Machiavellian type king trying to hold his nation together Then halfway through the story, we find out he s a super high level unmatched warrior who basically subjugates the enemy nations BY HIMSELF First of all, a king is not some brute running around solo smashing his enemies Second of all, this revelation made the entire overthrow the king plot by the council completely idiotic How can they possibly overthrow someone who s basically a god we find out casually he s centuries old Why did Qasin appear so powerless at first he could just crush his opponents He certainly showed the character for it later The whole subplot involving the king was just so poorly executed.3 The Kass Darwin dynamic got OLD incredibly fast I lost count of how many times they joke about asking each other out It s the EXACT same interaction rehashed OVER and OVER again throughout the book There s so much unneeded fluff it s painful.4 The Stephanie Eve dynamic is never explained and ends rather poorly in volume 1 Stephanie apparently shoots Eve and kidnaps his brother prior However, in the main storyline, Stephanie is apparently working for Eve when she hands Darwin the Creation Tablet The contradictory relationship made absolutely no sense The whole sudden Stephanie Darwin romance came out of NOWHERE and felt extremely forced, especially because it happens RIGHT AFTER Kass confesses her feelings.5 Many of the character motivations simply make no sense For example, Maddock s guild s participation in the final battle of the book was absolutely forced The POV even states there s no profit or real reason for the guild to change their plans and that it simply happens because they are crazy It just seemed like the author wanted the guild to get butchered by Qasin and didn t know how to make it happen so he ends up handwaving it This kind of shoehorning happens in many other instances as well It just seemed like the author had plot points in mind and just forced things in that direction without feeling like writing a natural path to it.6 There are tons of plot holes and elements that the author just glosses over First, there s never any mention of the NPC s thoughts on the players It is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE for players to both have a strange log out log in function as well as the ability to come back from the dead without ANY of the NPCs noticing Seriously, they NEVER comment on it and just seem to pretend it doesn t exist It would be obvious to an idiot that players are unnatural beings from another world and yet it is NEVER brought up Second, the whole Unity plan set in place by the programmers was never going to work, even without Darwin interfering It becomes clear that the heads of each nation are essentially overpowered gods level 60 70 that no group of piddling council members can depose We even see that the white horn Alpha remains in charge Qasin actually essentially unites the entire continent by himself with his sword fairly quickly The initial premise seemed like a joke hide spoiler

    Somehow Charles was able to put a soft touch of Magic Realism into the VRMMRPG world.Some NPCs are as important as players, and you have awesome stuff going on outside of the game as well.The Bathrobe Knight brings new spices to the genre, and is full of surprises and plot twists that can be enjoyed not only by avid gamers but general fantasy consumers as well.

    I had to stop reading this book Sorry, but the premise was painful and I couldn t get past Chapter 3.It readlike I was playing a video game through a third party rather than reading an actual book The comedy feltslapstick than cerebral and did not really entertain me enough to pull me into the shallow plot line.

    I bought it to support the author, but I read it as a free, serialized web novel, thus I have trouble reviewing it as a purchased book.To me, it was a fun weekly web novel The author reads all the comments, responds and can course correct depending on the readers reviews.This is VRMMO, without all the silly real life stuff, and yet not quite transported genre Players actually play the game like it is an MMO.It is given in different POV sections, kinda like Song of Ice Fire.It starts of I bought it to support the author, but I read it as a free, serialized web novel, thus I have trouble reviewing it as a purchased book.To me, it was a fun weekly web novel The author reads all the comments, responds and can course correct depending on the readers reviews.This is VRMMO, without all the silly real life stuff, and yet not quite transported genre Players actually play the game like it is an MMO.It is given in different POV sections, kinda like Song of Ice Fire.It starts off strong as a comedy, then towards the conclusion, the humor goes away.There is an abundance of gamer nerd or is it geek I always get the 2 confused pop culture references.Really, this playslike an MMO than most other VR stories I ve read, which is quite nice I can tell that the author has experience with and appreciation for games. Obviously, there are many things that would never be in a REAL mmo, but I accept it for the sake of the story Unfortunately, it suffers from a badly done romance plotline towards the end Many readers immediately commented, and apparently the writer viewed the situation completely differently, so I m still hopeful that the situation will be improved ________If you aren t sure whether you want to buy this story, then don t It is available for free on the author s Blog would recommend reading it there anyways, if for no other reason than the community and the interaction with the author.It was worth my while as a free story If you enjoy it like I did, then you can always buy it later for the extra content in the paid version

    Well, in short, this was pretty disappointing It started off a little questionable with the main character having claws and red eyes for no good reason, but was still mildly entertaining Unfortunately, none of the characters ever felt even remotely like real people as the story progressed Evenunfortunately, the author made the in my opinion mistake of adding multiple pov characters before giving enough time to the initial character Then evenunfortunately, some of those povs wer Well, in short, this was pretty disappointing It started off a little questionable with the main character having claws and red eyes for no good reason, but was still mildly entertaining Unfortunately, none of the characters ever felt even remotely like real people as the story progressed Evenunfortunately, the author made the in my opinion mistake of adding multiple pov characters before giving enough time to the initial character Then evenunfortunately, some of those povs were very removed from the primary character so I struggled to care about anything going on with them even though I expected it to tie in later.There were various misspellings and grammar mistakesnot egregiously so, but probably 20 or sojust enough to run into another one before the memory of the previous one had time to fade While the beginning started off with an ok sense of humor, I felt like the glamour faded and the various humorous similes and metaphors becameannoying and kind of odd considering NPCs in a medieval fantasy game were using contemporary real world references It almost seemed like the author forgot when he was writing from a player rather than an NPC, but most of the characters were pretty generic and flat so I guess I m not surprised.I had War Aeturnus on my to read list, but after noticing that it s written by the same author as this book, I am having some serious second thoughts I might go to that book down the road to give the author a second chance, but I have zero desire to read the next book in this series

    SPOON Don t worry, you ll find out eventually as this humorous story unfolds The basic premise seemed overused until you get further along and realize there isto the story than you might think at first glance Personally I was hooked from the beginning but in a genre overflowing with imitators sometimes it s hard to find something you re willing to spend time on With that said, how can you not be intrigued by the idea of a Bathrobe Knight, it s right there in the name, you just know SPOON Don t worry, you ll find out eventually as this humorous story unfolds The basic premise seemed overused until you get further along and realize there isto the story than you might think at first glance Personally I was hooked from the beginning but in a genre overflowing with imitators sometimes it s hard to find something you re willing to spend time on With that said, how can you not be intrigued by the idea of a Bathrobe Knight, it s right there in the name, you just know something wierd is going to happen.Even so, the book at it s darker moments, questioning the nature of VR and how you should react and interact with the NPCs and how you yourself fits into that world While it wasn t a deeply philosophical book, the care that the protagonist shows for the denizens of the digital world did make me think twice about the future of gaming and VR The story was interesting enough to keep me reading, and I eagerly looked forward to the second book from the moment I finished the final page of bonus content.Thanks Charles Dean TBK

    I listened to an audio book but as that isn t listed on Goodreads.com I am placing my review here.Note I summarize the stories in books 1 and 2 which likely contain spoilers so read at your own risk.So this is the third book by Charles Dean I ve read and he is one of the better authors working in the litRPG genre I read books 1 and 2 together so I will review them both simultaneously Book 2 was a significant drop off in enjoyment for due to story choices In both books the author does an admi I listened to an audio book but as that isn t listed on Goodreads.com I am placing my review here.Note I summarize the stories in books 1 and 2 which likely contain spoilers so read at your own risk.So this is the third book by Charles Dean I ve read and he is one of the better authors working in the litRPG genre I read books 1 and 2 together so I will review them both simultaneously Book 2 was a significant drop off in enjoyment for due to story choices In both books the author does an admirable job of focusing on the characters As a result, when book 1 ended with many matters still in progress I did not feel a lack of resolution Book 2, while still doing an excellent job of focusing on the characters, demeans some of those characters and brings the manipulations of couple of characters to the forefront Since we are never told what the purpose of the manipulations is, the second book left me feeling like it was pretty much filler between books 1 and 3.So, the book 1 story The MC, Darwin, is a good guy who games and has no idea where his glowing red eyes or superhero type body comes from Somehow the Darwin is transported directly into a VR game and, as far as he knows, he is trapped there As a result the MC begins to befriend the NPCs, after all, their wold is now his world Darwin also meets Kass, a gamer, who sees Darwin as an experience mine and whose father, Robert, is the lead programmer for the game While on a quest Darwin meets Eve, a sister he never knew he had, which is where the big unexplained mystery that largely ruined book 2 begins We aren t told how Darwin has a sister or anything that actually confirms sibling status Eve does, however, give Darwin a powerful sword and tell him where to find a super powerful treasure Upon returning to the town Darwin has started to call home he finds it ruins and is made town leader by the dying captain of the guard Darwin leads the town people to the mine where he met Eve since it is not too far away and immediately defensible Upon leveling up Darwin s race was revealed to be demon and Darwin also got the ability to raise his kills so Darwin secures the mine using zombie monsters.Cass finds Darwin at the mine still re settling villagers Cass and Darwin go after the big treasure and discover Stephanie, a medusa, guarding it Stephanie wants Darwin to get the treasure and hits on Darwin since he is immune to her stone stare The treasure, it turns out, allows Darwin to start his own demon faction and, upon use, will even transform all of his followers to demons.Darwin returns to the mine lays out the options for the villagers, all of whom follow Darwin and are therefore turned into demons All of this happens, however, on an island starting area and Darwin and Cass are nearing the level where they will have to leave for the mainland As a result the entire village marches to the sea to find transport en masse to the mainland.Meanwhile the three factions on Darwin s island have been fighting for control Eve manages to enter the confidence of the human king right as he is victorious Eve aids the king in bringing the 3 armies together to oppose an invasion from an adjoining beginner island where one of the factions is a flying bird person race Although Darwin hasn t communicated with Eve since their initial meeting Darwin co arrive at the beach just in time to see the start of the battle The defenders are greatly outnumbered but Darwin co are able to attack the invaders from behind and turn the tide, thanks in large part to Stephanie turning a large number of invaders to stone This leaves the vast majority of the invaders ships available for looting which, in turn, means Darwin and co have their rides to the mainland Also, three of the bird person players revolted against their faction and aided Darwin in the fight As a result they join Darwin s faction at the end of the book 1.In a bonus chapter at the end of book 1 we see Eve and Stephanie carrying an infant Darwin through a battle zone to a giant blue portal in a game like world I forget when it is revealed but by this time the reader knows Stephanie was only pretending to be a medusa In banter during the shootout it is revealed that Darwin is the future of the Red Eye clan whatever that means Stephanie betrays and shoots Eve when they reach the portal while claiming that Eve should understand what is happening and that is all a part of an overworked plot Stephanie takes Darwin and leaves through a portal Eve, dying, collapses through the portal and ends up in our world Eve is found by a scientist Charles who saw the blue portal and came to investigate Charles nurses Eve back to health The end Note how all of this just raisesquestions than it answers How do Eve and Stephanie get back to the game world Why did Stephanie betray Eve Those are just the two most obvious ones but I could list about 100without trying.Book 2 starts with a surprise visit to the VR company by its billionaire owner, Charles The author goes out of his way to make Charles seem sinister This whole treatment of the Charles character was irritating it was as if the author didn t think his story was good enough so he added artificial drama in the form of making Charles overtly creepy evil when there was no REVEALED reason for him to be so But the lack of of reveals is book 2 biggest problem anyhow In the game world, Eve has talked the human king, who is also a powerful warrior, into going adventuring with her They are sailing to the mainland behind Darwin co Somethings happen on the boats, but nothing major so eventually Darwin co arrive at the part of the Mainland primarily run by beast kin and ruled over by the Panda King Darwin explores the city on his own and is immediately roped into a tournament with two new companions Darwin co win and are given a quest by the Panda King to clear out bandits Darwin discovers that the bandits are actually human rebels The panda king has discriminated against humans for years and so a rebellion formed Darwin recruits the rebels to his cause but Darwin s villagers are still in the Panda King s city so Darwin heads back to fool the Panda King into thinking Darwin completed the quest and to get the villagers to safety Messengers are sent to all the other rebel groups and everyone congregates in a cave which they fortify while Darwin trains a phalanx Stephanie is working in the bowels of the cave to create an inter world portal through which, or so she tells Darwin, everyone, villagers and all except players will be able to escape Darwin just has to hold off the Panda King s army for long enough Eve, hoping to separate Darwin from the evil Stephanie, helps the Panda King but it irritates the human king to help the Panda King kill humans Darwin s defense virtually decimates the Panda King s army, but with losses During the fighting the human king finally has enough and stabs Eve to prevent her from killing all the humans, after which the human king and Panda King essentially kill each other fighting However, in his last moments of life the human king see Eve has healed from the wounds he gave her Eve comes over and claims the human king just cost manylives than he saved, although given the complete lack of explanation as to why Eve believes this the value of this statement is unclear.After the battle Darwin goes to check on Stephanie Stephanie pulls Darwin through the portal where Darwin finds Charles waiting for him The end Bottom line Although generally well written, book 2 felt like a waste of time due to the author s failure to communicate just where the story is going There is a reason articles have headlines, without knowing the direction of the story the reader has no way of knowing if he she should continue reading For this reason I will be dropping this series

    It started off confusingly A guy living in the normal world yet seems to have ZERO attachment to anything and anyone around him even though he was an adult is our MC Also He s probably a demon how many guys do you know outside of anime have red eyes, pre sharpened nails to a point and super buff even thought they never work out and spend their days in an office while playing video games through the night Yeah sketchy start but I was open to it he got zapped into an MMO by UNKNOWN JUST GO It started off confusingly A guy living in the normal world yet seems to have ZERO attachment to anything and anyone around him even though he was an adult is our MC Also He s probably a demon how many guys do you know outside of anime have red eyes, pre sharpened nails to a point and super buff even thought they never work out and spend their days in an office while playing video games through the night Yeah sketchy start but I was open to it he got zapped into an MMO by UNKNOWN JUST GO WITH IT and fine lets get this started The king I don t know what to say here, you start off with a benign ruler that is trying his best to hold his kingdom together without really hurting anyone and mid way that goes out the window Actually a lot of things go out the window by then including whatever goodwill this book gained from the light hearted first few chapters I found myself skipping paragraphs and then full pages without missing anything Never a good sign It feels like this was a short story of maybe 50 pages that got padded and filled with fluff until that was all that was left which is a shame The author s love for MMOs and gaming is obvious and I do hope he finds his own voice
