    Which is your favorite? I'm partial to the first, personally.

    That's the main one that feels like there was a story planned; it's been meandering for a while ever since. I get that's just the genre (and wuxia webnovels will always be worse at it than any litRPG)

    For me like many, The Land along with a story called Access was a gateway into LitRPG. The first book was an interesting presence, it sparked my imagination, but the second book didn't feel the same. I guess I'd have to say the first.

    On kindle, those charts killed it for me in the long run.

    Favorite would probably be Seven. There is story progression and lots of charts that I love.

    Yes. It added a great new mechanic, expanded the villages reach with the concept of vassals, and a major threat was defeated. Plus I liked getting an extremely long audiobook for a credit.

    Don't really have a Favourite, say the first one because it introduced me to the series.

    Book 8. Its the most hated book which means it generates a ton of discussions. Also, I kinda liked all the new mechanics. Bit boring storywise, but I figure its a setup book more than anything. As long as things pick up in book 9 and in the new series i'm good with it.

    Before 7, I would say 5 is probably my favorite. But it is a tough call. They are all good.

    I dont see how they wouldnt, hes perfectly primed for so many plot threads. In my mind book 8 is like goku's trip to Namek. Just setting the table for some epic battle and plot progression in the future.

    And the settlement points...it was just so cool going to lvl 3 house of healing, barracks, research...not to forget moving the forge and the different metals to the mine.

    I've read most of the book 8 reviews on Amazon and the biggest complaints were to little time (in the land...not even a week) and the several page episode on diarrhea. I seemed like filler to me. Yeah we wanted all the prompts and such but how many times does he have to explain certain concepts?

    This. It's the eighth book in the series. You don't see us going into the first time Harry used magic/ cast a charm every time he casts a spell.
