Your world is now forfeit

I love that the dude upgraded his body and ended up looking kinda like Keanu. This is a fun book, the MC has big anger issues which he's trying to work through and seems to be maybe pansexual from some of his conversations.
Very cool concept that weaves in lots of familiar skills and ideas. I liked it and am looking forward to another chapter in this story.

Very unexpected

A lot better than expected, hoping the story stays interesting in the second book. As always Nick is an amazing narrator and the characters have good feel to them I think this touches on some things that get left to the dust for characters that John experience and it is the anger they have built in that usually gets shoehorned into being some random burst of raw power and strength for them rather than actually being a flaw for the character.

Interesting idea for a story

Do you have any additional comments?

During action it was easy to follow the story but often I found the changes between scenes and enviroments erratic and abrupt. It is just my feeling though so don't let me put you off this book. The idea for the story is really good and characters are unique. It's just the way the story flows made me loose track of it more times than I can count. But if you can ignore it, this is a good book overall.

Unique but...

Nice bit of change from the normal type of litrpg but it’s a pretty standard MC who is the typical angry character, and then it’s a mess of writing jumping all over the place. Average.
