    A very satisfactory read. It is a slice of life meets LitRPG with just the right amount of clean wholesome fun. If u enjoy story’s with the MC becoming a better person or just want a small break from the cliches I highly recommend this story.

    Even though it's one of the first books I wrote, and it does have some editing issues (hopefully not too jarring), I still think it's pretty good.

    If you're looking for an LitRPG book with a rather unique outlook on the genre, then this is a good choice. It's not entirely unique, but it's close enough that it'll pass mustard in a review at least. I like this approach, and while it would have been interesting to see the character grow according to our normal LITRPG mechanics, the way this one was handled raises some interesting aspects of advancement.

I'm looking forward to more books in this series. I really like books where there is building involved, and while this one didn't have building as a stand-alone thing, the way it was handled kind of made the whole process a building story, which may throw some readers out of whack, but one I found (mostly) interesting, and something I would probably not mind seeing more of in other worlds. It would be interesting to see how this series plays out, so I'm keeping this author/series on my watch list.

    What a great change of pace this story is. It’s just a man who got lucky and encountered something that changed his life. He could have done anything he wanted from there on but decided to be the best version of himself he could, helping others along the way. There’s a little too much luck involved that pushes the plot forward and some of the interactions seems too easy but it was a very pleasant read.

    Fun book I really enjoyed this one. Reminded me a lot of Re-start by Dan Sugralinov. Had that same slice of life/Game-Lit aspect of what would happen if a normal guy came across a “system” and how they would incorporate it into their life. Also enjoyed the MC and his unique hobbies and upgrade choices. It made the book much more interesting!

    The best book I have read in a while This story was a very refreshing and new take in a relatively new genre. I very much enjoyed the perspective of a much older main character than is usually used. It is a very reasoned and down to earth approach to the story, and the genre of progression fantasy.

    Enjoyed very much. Enjoyed very much. I am older and was very surprised at how well you wrote from the point of view of an older man. I shall read the next in the series. As an older male I am looking forward to how the main character explains the ending.

    Strange and Fun This is a strange book, positing a stranger world. It is also charming, positive, and enjoyable. I found myself really liking Carl and his journey. Minor proofreading errors and a relaxed pace will turn some away.

    Delightful story, very enjoyable 👍🤗 I could relate to the main character, sad to say! Fantastic storyline in the best sense. Ready for the next episode. Carl has an interesting life, alien help with his DNA! A continuing storyline that I'm looking forward to. Delightful story, very enjoyable 👍🤗 I could relate to the main character, sad to say!

To potential readers: Art needs to be experienced at an individual level. You are the only one that can determine what you like and don’t like. Don’t let others make that decision for you. You should definitely read the book and completely ignore all of the reviews. You are a much better judge of what you will like than anyone here. Cheers

    Fun Intro to the Author As the first time reading anything by this author I can honestly say that it was an enjoyable read. Well the concept of lit RPG has been done time and time again, I like the idea that the main character is an older gentleman with no concept of video games or the like. It makes for a very refreshing take on this concept, and while there’s not a lot of action and explosions like you would expect, the slice of life makes it a enjoyable ride.

It’s not pretentious or thinks too much of itself, instead it just makes for a great casual read, perfectly suited for a long train ride to work. Going back to my culinary background, I would describe this is a quick meal made by a soccer mom. It’s got character and Rudimental flair and although not original, it’s the people that matter and not the material. In short, I enjoyed it and I will be looking forward to reading the next one.

    A Good Read Finally a story with the main character older than 18.I really enjoyed a book with characters closer to my age ( I'm 63) But it looks like Carl's age is changing. I've gotten into reading those fantasy books with the hero earing points to grow stronger and it feels like this book is lightly based on that and I really like it this story is based in our present time. If your looking for a book with a lot of mindless killing or action go get one of those other books.

In my downtime I imagine scenarios where I inject myself into what’s happening in the current book I’m reading (which is what most authors want I’d imagine) For some reason this particular book hit a certain note that resonated in me like a well orchestrated symphony... call it old age (50) or just whimsical reminiscing...

    This book is amazing. So I typically lit read literary RPGs. this book hits that and almost every single way it's interesting I love the story. I can't wait to hear more this guy needs to write about six more of these at least I'll buy every single one. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book. The writing is fine, the quotes are awesome especially the one by Frederick Douglass. I also love of how good of a book this was all I can say is Sir you need to write more books I love this book.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I really enjoyed this book. Quite a bit more than I thought I would in fact! It was game lit, well sort off. A genre I’ve been pretty obsessed by lately, but there was no actual game. No leveling, no goblins or immersion pod. Just a cute old man who is some how seeing pop up boxes with data about his health and some things he is encountering. I haven’t read anything with a similar plot before. The editing was top notch. The characters all had backgrounds and personalities. Following Carl around I really enjoyed this book. Quite a bit more than I thought I would in fact! It was game lit, well sort off.

I figure I’ll find out when Carl does.

    Very fun with open possibilities This was a unique story in that while litrpg like it doesn't really have many stats and little controls. I loved the story and the major story arc is just showing its head. The only problem is that there seems to be few complications and most people the MC meets are well suited to his tasks.... If only that were really true. I enjoy the constant upgrade process though I wish the MC would own it more and explore the interface more to learn it's scope and power.

    This book wasn't what I was expecting. I was expecting to read 2 or 3 chapters and toss it back to Kindle. I am so glad I was wrong. This is a book I do highly recommend! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this odd book. It was surprising how the story comes at you from completely different place that you weren't expecting. This book was a very refreshing change for me.

    Good surprise. I bought this book on a whim without knowing anything about the book or author and I'm glad I did. I found it to be a quick easy read and I liked the main characters attitude and response to what has happened to him. I also liked the hints about the cause of the change in the main character.

    Pleasant surprise here The book is well written and progresses at a smooth pace and I was able to actually relate emotionally to the characters, because even the side characters had some back story that have them a more real feeling... the only thing I would do is make the story longer and also explain the source of the blue boxes more as well as well as the end goal... but I guess that will come in book 2... on a side note the author seems like a chill guy

    Excellent and new This was a solid little surprise. I read it not knowing what to expect exactly. I had some ideas about what was going to happen and I'm happy to say most of those ideas were disappointed. In a nut shell this story was what you'd get if your slightly cranky grandfather got a new lease at life and it was very fun to read. I look forward to seeing the next entry in the series.

    Great example of miracle personal improvement story I was delighted by this book. Although the plot is a.familiar one (older gentleman gets alien.improvements using a gaming type interface to a get health Youth and wealth) the a writing is.light, the chapter opening quotes are spot on (a VERY rare occurrence) and the main character is likeable. I hope the sequel expands the characters and keeps the writing virtues of this book.

    Nice Very nice. I recommend (Before starting on Book 3 if that’s planned) on going through Book 1 (And 2, is 1 is an example) and proof-reading, or having someone else do so for you. Just some small errors that annoyed me a bit, but besides that, good book, and am looking forward to the 2nd, which I’m going to start after finishing this review. Side note: Would give 5* if the small errors weren’t as numerous.

    Surprising find The title of this one tweaked my scientific mind, though the cover made clear this genre is self-published. The story had me laughing out loud at several antics of the main character. And I enjoyed the different take on how Carl became “gameified” - rather than falling into video games in his old age, he had a spider-man like transition. But the game forced him to do some different things and the story continued.
