How can someone forget their abilities, items and not even plan 15 minutes ahead and still succeed? Because he's saved by those around him. If we're being honest, he mostly screws things up because he's so damn stupid. He may be forgiven for making less than optimal decisions while in combat under pressure - even though one of the qualities of a good leader is to be able to do that. But when out of combat, not being under pressure, he still makes stupid decisions.

Anyway, I'm writing here to help you decide if this is worth your time. I've listened to all 6 available books, and I did enjoy it. In a way raging at the idiot MC is part of the entertainment I guess. I would recommend checking out the first book, and if it hooks you, don't worry the other five will not let you down.

Slow-witted heros make you mad? This'll rile u up!

The TL;DR is that the story is enjoyable and if you like litRPGs and are just looking for another fix, you'll get one here.

However, you will have to accept that the protagonist is dumber than bread. I think Mr. Brody derives pleasure from making us rage at the protagonist..
Anyway, having listened as far as book 4, I can say that refreshingly this isn't a one man show where the hero is absolutely overpowered and succeeds without end. Another refreshing difference is that women are not just plot devices in need of rescue, there are actually some badass girls in this story without whom the protagonist would've gotten his ass handed to him several times over. Sadly, the "fawning-over-the-hero" trope is in here too, although not overly present.

Someone mentioned that women would be reduced to being beautiful in this story. I'd like to contest that. I can understand why one would think that, since the story is being told through the eyes of the protagonist, who is written as your typical sexist gamer. However, one should not confuse a sexist telling of a story with a telling of a sexist story.. if that makes any sense to you.

All in all, Mr. Brody has written a story where the protagonist is a rather realistic portrayal of the average gamer: horny and not the sharpest tool in the shed. ;)
Would I have preferred a smarter hero who contemplated the philosophical questions posed by this scenario and could fathom the things happening around him? Of course I would. Will I still buy the remaining two books and listen to this story, raging at the idiot? Absolutely. It is entertaining after all.

Refreshingly different

I could not stop myself and finished this audio book in one 12h session. Everytime Cal discovers something new I got giddy with excitement. It is such a joy to listen to him grow.
