decent

previous books were very good, this one however got boged down in stats. before attacking 5 of the same mobs do we really need to listen to the same description and the stats of every single one..

Continues the good work but.

The one down side was the constant “upgrade” within the book. I would guess that at least 1/4 of the book is spent listening to upgrades or analyse instead of the story.

Overall still good and worth spending the credit for it but it seems more like a filler book to the bigger story.

For lovers of incest and beastiality

Upon listening to this book you will learn many things. The author loves repetition, copy and paste, incest and beastiality. The author has limited imagination and often repeats the same scenario again and again albeit in a slightly different location when he is not just coping and pasting. The author is obsessed with sex but clearly shows a lack of any experience in his writing. Every character has more or less the same personality and all use sexual innuendos as often as possible. All characters male or female throw themselves at the main protagonist for sexual desires and worship including the royal families. Female characters are portrayed as old fashioned stereotypes and appear to only exist in this book for bowing down to the sexual desires of their dear lord.

Aleron does it again!

Aleron does it again and writes a bloody brilliant book, I’ve listened to and read this I don’t know how many times, but every time I start the series again I’m enthralled, if you haven’t listened to this series by now you’ve missed a wonderful experience, and if you’ve tried even one of his books, you don’t need my review, because you’re already addicted!

Gnomes Rule

Another beautifully told story of adventure and leveling up in the land. My only issues were that some of the prompts and level building can seem tedious. There were a couple of lengthy in depth descriptions that I zoned out during. Overall the level of complexity that Aleron is constructing with each story is phenomenal.

Great addition to the series

So I am on my second go through and their is so much more to the story that I missed on my first go through.

I have read all 7 of the books and listened to them (Mostly twice now). I know some people complain about the prompts but I love that type of info. It makes the book feel more real.


For anyone considering this series: The Mc acts like a real person. He will do good and bad things. Some things people consider cruel (My brother and I got in to a discussion about that). Here is the thing I can’t say I’d do any less in his position. I mean honestly he is. A much nicer person than I would be in that situation.

Con: here is the only reason it did not make 5 stars. While I love prompts the description of the goblins was a bit tedious when it kept repeating racial facts. That would be my only real suggestion to skip over.

The saga continues with gusto!

Richter, Randolphus, Scion, Fueton, and of course Alma continue to contribute to the growth of Misty Village. The Pixies and Sprites have sworn fealty to Richter thus increasing Richter’s power, affinity, and military strength to some degree. Richter has been lovingly described as the sword carrying, magic wielding, master of a place of power. I have also named him King of Idioms. Richter is constantly busy grinding his limitless attributes, skills, and spells. His latest favorites are smithing, enchanting, patrolling, building, and scribing. The saga continues with gusto!

Not that great

When the story is being told its great but endless reading of stats is just too much. Objectifying every woman he introduces is old. I'm moving on to something else.

Best series I've read all year!

My son introduced me to this book and I picked up the audiobook for a long work commute. The narrator is probably the best I've ever heard. The book itself is a combination of Piers anthony punny humor, world building, and a dude encountering a plethora of "oh crap" situations. I've read the series twice and don't plan on stopping. Well worth the time/cost.

The Land: Swarm

I loved the book, even if I didn’t quite understand where the title Swarm came from exactly.

Great story and a great overall experience.

Podehl has a great performance as well.

Straight up awesome

Okay so a few days ago I downloaded book 1 of this series. I have been unable to write a review because I could not stop listening to this series. At the end of this book binge (#bookbinge), all I could think was good lord when does the next one come out. This is a magnificent series that really plunks my loot string.
