This is an extremely rare did not finish from me. I really despise these literary RPGs. The scenes where the narrator blandly reads off character stat progressions make me wish I was deaf. While I normally try to finish every book I start, these LitRPGs sap my will to live and I couldn’t recommend them to anybody.

You’d think a story about a cursed blade would have more action in it than your usual story. It doesn’t. It has talking, moe talking and some talking. When the characters are done talking, they talk about killing before they talk some more. After 3 – 4 eternities of somebody, please, end my suffering, they have the most boring action scenes I’ve ever had to sit through before they talk some more.

I fell asleep, listening to what might be the world’s most boring book ever written. Well, the narrator didn’t help. I tried to find my place again, shortly after I did, I encountered a scene where the narrator describes a monotone character who speaks without any inflections in his voice. It barely sounds any different from the rest of the narration. Somehow the narrator manages to provide different voices for characters and act out lines while remaining incredibly dull and dry in his performance.
