    1. I'm reading Nevin Iliev's Morningwood: Everybody Loves Large Chests. I was drawn in by the admirable punistry of the blurb, the bluring of the meaning of the word "chest." I figured it might be clever.And it is. As shown by this quote:How come he didn't notice it earlier? Ah, probably because it was behind Xera's back while her voluptuous breasts were, as expected, on her chest.Clever, right? Tongue in cheek? Amusing, even? Yes. All of those. And those kinds of jokes (which is to say clever, ton [...]

    2. An entertaining story from a completely unexpected and unusual pov (unexpected, given a blurb which accurately sets the tone of the book but which is also very misleading), this is entirely a niche novel. It is written to entertain RPG gamers and their associates. A juvenile and chauvinist view of women means that it will also appeal more to male players than to females, generally speaking. The above caveats having been noted, the writing is light, mildly witty, and enjoyable, if one is either n [...]

    3. Lovely gem of a readThis book is a positive hoot of an adventure with an interesting set of outcomes that twist in inhuman ways. The fact the lead character has no moral compass still doesn't make the plot suffer, just more devious in unexpectedly satisfying ways that make you love the monster. Looking forward to the next book.

    4. A Murderously Fun Time.This book is violent, often tasteless, sometimes salacious, and frequently hilarious. The humor is often dark and bitter, but very well done.Follow a deadly and murderous toddler as it meets a fantasy world that is vaguely game-ist but lethal and serious. Watch it bumble, struggle, and grow.Not for children, but good for fans of villainous adventure, black comedy, or creative novels.

    5. I laughedout loud work.I read a lot of litrpg. Like some, hate others. I was extremely confused by the end of chapter one. I had no idea where this book was going. I bought it and kept reading. A book has never made me laugh as much as this one did. Download the sample. If you like the sample, you WILL like the book. Hugely entertaining at the very least. Love it. Instant buy on volume 2!

    6. I love large chestsThis book is a serious dark comedy. The character changes over time from a unthinking non-gender specific character into a dim witted character with flashes of brilliance. You'll get that joke of you finish the book.

    7. While I found the blurb completely misleading to the plot of this book, I can't say that it's completely unrelated. The main character of this story is a mimic whose mostly used shape is a wooden chest. Unexpectedly, this chest grows in abilities and gains lots of extra points, making it a great evil the humans fight against. This part of the story I found it quite interesting, and a quite original POV.Then we go to the large chests described in the blurb. The women in this book are detailedly d [...]

    8. I still maintain my stance that I'm not LitFRP material. I just hate reading through stats pages even while I play, let alone reading about imaginary character's FRP adventures.However, this one is hilarious and it was well worth my time (except, well, stats). The premise alone of stupid chest that somehow manages to rule the playground in spite of its stupidity, or actually because of it, is just irresistible.And onomatopoeia, oh onomatopoeia Would definitely make me laugh even if totally out o [...]

    9. I loved this. Seriously loved it. The book summary does not do it justice, but I see the quandary, as I'm having a hard time coming up with a summary without spoiling some of the better points of the story.I'll just say that it's snarky, funny, and just damn fun to read. Also, has less to do with breasts than I expected.Basically, someone wrote a story after being inspired by the following D&D joke:(view spoiler)[The barkeep asked why we carried weapons into his bar. I said ‘Mimics.’ The [...]

    10. This was a really fun book to read. Definitely crude at times, but a great read from a point of view you don't normally think about.

    11. Clever conceit, but appallingly sexistThe idea of a mimic slowly becoming smarter and more bafflingly powerful is smartly done and might have been more entertaining if it hadn't also been accompanied by the most sexist descriptions of women I've seen in my life. Every woman will have her breasts described. Every woman will be called a sexual name and be dehumanized. The main female character enjoys being raped and tortured and humiliated. The book contains lines like "Males are smarter, but fema [...]

    12. A fun spin on conventional fantasyWorth a read. Funny in a gorey way, good plot and a few really good curve balls in the story.

    13. Boxxy lives! (on now)I've been reading ELLC on royal roads since I found it. A wonderful series about a monster making its way in the world. The middle drags a bit, but the wonderful carnage starts here once Boxxy get enough wits to properly think. It's hard to enthuse enough about Boxxy's adventures. Perhaps not for the squeamish, it would fit right in on adult swim.

    14. Subpar for its subgenreSo have read a lot of trash in this subgenre of monster levels up and I got this one because well good ratings funny premise and it might not get ruined by the Japanese way of going funny gimmick proceeds to not be funny. The closest thing I can compare this with is I was a vending machine when I reincarnated but no that premise was sillier and the book more light hearted. But it suffered from the same issue bland, bland and more bland. The characters were generic, the jok [...]

    15. A lovable different protagonistthe main character is a mimic who lucks out and starts levelling up. What are you still doing here? Go read it.

    16. This Book Surprises! I am a biblophile of over forty proud years of addiction. Not to many books honestly surprise me. This book did so honestly and coherently in both plot and characters development. Also made me laugh out loud! Can't wait for the next book!!!! You done yet Super Sized Snack!!! Aka Author😈😈😈😈!!!

    17. This isn't "bad", its more like meh.Without giving too much away I can say it has no real feeling, no emotion, and not really different from a dozen other stories built around similar ideas (even though the POV is completely different). It is like eating stale bread, no real bite, no taste and forgettable.I do have a few more observations but only if you have read the book or don't mind spoilers.------------------SPOILER ALERT -----------------------------------First, the whole snippet they wri [...]

    18. All reviews in one spot: Night Mode ReadingIt all began rather simply. A hero was raiding a low level dungeon on his own, expecting some not too dangerous monsters to help him level up. Then he could at last move on to bigger places, where loot and treasures were automatically better. His wish almost came true when, finally truly lost, he noticed a low level treasure chest at the end of the corridor. Hey, it may not be a monster he wished for, but treasure chest is a treasure chest, and he wasn [...]

    19. I'm always wary of indie books, as a lot of times they're pretty bad, either the story or language. I was attracted to this book by the cover, mainly because I was looking for some manga type novels. The only rpg I've played is Warcraft 3.When this book started, I didn't know who the main character would be, as they all seemed to be dying. However it was quite a surprise when I realised who it was, and then the journey of epic silliness starts. It was an okay-ish book for me until around the hal [...]

    20. This is a very different take on LitRPG! If you're expecting a traditional story about a gamer that gets sucked into a VRMMORPG and works to level up, this is not that type of book. It doesn't really have a traditional story structure or an antagonist. It's just a bawdy tale about a monster's adventures in a world that happens to operate with the same mechanics as a game.What this book did have was humor, and plenty of it. It was a really entertaining and fun read. The characters were hilarious, [...]

    21. Imitation is the highest form of flattery right?This was a fun read, the only reason I didn't give it a higher star count is that it's basically the exact same mechanics as the Japanese light novel, "Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka?". Ilieve changes the spider to a treasure chest, but the rest of the main character is basically the same. Lesser/greater species, they both learn dark magic (same basic spells even). they both start in a dungeon with different levels, but end up defeating said dungeon. both " [...]

    22. I would have given this book 5 stars but it is only 252 pages long and the ending came just as things were getting good. It felt like the author was trying to get paid double by making what should be one book into two and I hate that.Otherwise this is one of the most enjoyable books I've read, but it is not for the faint of heart. The main character is a monster put on this earth to absolutely murder people, and, thanks to some initial luck, it does, A LOT. There is also a succubus so there is s [...]

    23. I had fun, overall it's an awesome book. Fun, entertaining and just plain nasty the nasty part was not that "tasty". And a damn JoJo reference out of nowhere I did find it entertaining and do recommend it to people that are "OK" with reading well gore, litRPGs, light novels and "look at the title of the book" Since this is the 1st book from this author I did cut him some slack on the rating. There is still room for improvement and I will go trough the vol 2. when it comes out. I do get it that [...]

    24. An excellent young adult chuckleSlow (but steady) world building, early character development, and well placed humor make this book both firmly enjoyable and, despite a curious lack of tension throughout, undeniably well written.The author expertly weaves both light and dark humor into the novel, jumping in to prevent story fatigue and boredom before they ever get the chance to arive. Complementing that is well placed misdirection, keeping the reader on their toes throughout the read.The system [...]

    25. An incredible performance by Jeff Hayes made the audiobook well worth my time.Aside from my love of pretty much every narration by Jeff Hayes, though, this is a pretty excellent story about the life of a mimic, sullied by not only the book's title, but also the inclusion of a succubus and a few related moments of explicit content that I would argue had absolutely no impact on plot, serving only to appeal to people who likely aren't otherwise interested in LitRPG-style books.I certainly would not [...]

    26. This book is really cute. I picked it up just for the title. well That and the artwork that made it clear what kind of story this was. The idea is fun. Have the MC be a mimic chest. Simple right?My one issue with this book is that this wasn't from the mimic's point of view. But instead a gamer narrator. Because of this the delivery suffers. It would have been fun to see things as the mimic does, that's the whole point of writing things from a different perspective (the divine dungeon series and [...]

    27. This bookThe book title is as deceptive as it's main character. It starts with a character who in all ways is dumber then a pile of stones. It uses many tropes in it's run but that is not a bad thing. Tropes became tropes for a reason after all. As you follow the story the main character makes will likely make you burst out laughing many times. It uses many things that any more player or ever rpg player will recognize and over all is an amazing read from a new writer.-spoilerish- (first few chap [...]

    28. A Fun ReadTake the smack talk, puns, and crude jokes from most any gaming session, then combine them with a truly hilarious concept, and you’ll get a good story. Add in the good writing, excellent editing, and great characters, and you’ll get this book.As often as it had me laugh, there were times when the story wavered and got too crude (e.g. the warlock beast tamer, and Buddy, to a lesser extent) which detracted overall. I understand what was intended in each case, but it just felt off.Ove [...]

    29. Cute - an engaging and enjoyable piece of fluff. The reader needs to have done - and enjoyed - at least RPGs and computer or online games. The cover blurb is misleading; the book is not about a novice adventurer. The cover art is accurate, and portrays the main character. One of the secondary characters is sitting on it. Yes, the treasure chest is the main character. Or actually, a critter that looks like a treasure chest is the main character. The author makes it work. Three stars for a fun rea [...]
