That German accent ...

Sam Peter Jackson does an amazing job of narrating the story with a strong German accent. Problem is that it's "getting me on my nerves", as we say, very quickly and somewhat ruins the whole audiobook. IMHO it would have been better only to use it for direct speech.
I hope the next books are with the old narrator again (or at least not set in Germany again :-))

How to play an unusual character great

playing a goblin with herbalist profession and a vampyric curse is not easy and that's what makes this LitRPG so interesting: the emphasis is on "adventure" and not only "combat". Of course you always know that wharever happens it will turn out good (too easy) but you will be surprised how the situations are resolved. It's maybe " light" literature but i am still waiting for the next book to be released!

Surprisingly good

The references to the Economics of the Hero-Business gave this book a fresh point oft view that I've not came across so far. It was witty and humorous but never too much.
Charakter Progression and story development were well done, too. I'll buy the second book for sure!

Only the audio / speech quality was not as good as audiobooks are usually nowadays. Or the speaker was not compatible with me :-) I had to listen at 90% speed.

Just for fans...

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

It's part of the fun in this series that the "Wizards" are almost almighty time-travelers but always too gawky to fully use their powers. This book is a bit disappointing, though, as the discrepancy of their powers and their stupid actions is too obvious. It worked well in book one where they were like toddlers who yet have to learn how to use their powers. Now they know their world and the book explicitly points out that they have quite a history there.

Additionally the "moral preachment" aspect was almost annoying. "Don't be overbearing, give bad men a second chance, respect women, trust the capabilities of clever children..." Just because the audience most probably like the 1990s retro charm of the books, does not mean that their mindsets are stuck in the 1970s and need to be educated.

Pageturner though lacking some depth

The story is literaly a Computer RPG game turned into a book. Hearing the level progression is almost AS rewarding as playing oneself exept that one cannot play while cycling yet so this is a great book for all avid gamers.

I did miss the party group-dynamic though that is e.g. excellent in the Drew Heyes books.

Adding a village one then other hand was really a good idea that leaves room for many Mord books.

luckily very few appearances of Brit the elder. The idea of an RPG style quest was nice but the story onl y mediocre. Nothing compared to e.g. Drew Heyes NPCs. the speaker was brilliant though.

If they had censored every swear word then this book would beep like a gameboy game!
Seriously, I liked the general idea of the book, the D&D references and even the story itself but the profanity it was a bit tedious.

Neither story nor characters are as good as in e.g. the book "NPCs" and there's maybe a bit too much swearing and dude humour but all in all it was a light and fun read.
