Reincarnation,- Common Sense from that Prior Life

First, I love LitRPG. It's why I got this book. Second, I love reincarnation fantasy. This was, on the surface, going to be the best of both worlds. The problem with the actual book is, it doesn't seem to be either.

Yes, the world of the book and the people in it live with some "System". And yes, the main character dies and reincarnates into this new world. But at no point do these things actually matter, at least before I gave up a few hours before the end of the book(minor spoilers ahead).

First, the LitRPG elements. The characters do have stats. Speed, Strength, Dexterity, Vitality, etc. But these stats don't seem to DO anything. At one point, despite not investing any points into strength whatsoever, the main character is still able to lift a boy over her shoulders at 14 and run out of a burning house. She just *wanted* to be able to, so she could despite her abysmal physical stats.

The leveling doesn't make sense either. Besides there not actually being anything like experience points(skills and classes seems to level arbitrarily), the levels for skills don't seem to make much of a difference. With Running at Level 1, the main character wasn't allowed in the "fast lane" for people with high movement speed. With Running at Level 60... the main character is still too slow to be in the fast lane. Didn't make any sense. Same for the other skills, the levels didn't seem to have any effect whatsoever, and the author doesn't describe increased effects either.

Lastly, despite being reincarnated with her teenage memories mostly intact, the main character acts like a regular child in her new life. Playing with other children her age. Throwing tantrums, making rash decisions, and just being completely unaware of her situation. It didn't make any sense. There was no reason to make this a reincarnation fantasy if her prior life didn't actually carry through into the new one.

With all that being said, it's a fine performance if you're desperate for something to listen to. Just hope this review allows someone to go into it with eyes open

really enjoyed this one.

to keep this short, it was a fun story with a decent level of realism that allow my suspension of disbelief to easily take and made me want to hear more. The timeline kills me in alot of stories, to much happening to fast or outside even mild rational pacing, but not here. the timeline feels organic and considered.

the narrator did an excellent job balancing the behaviors and gave enough inflection that the MCs differnt stages felt real.

The story and characters are so good.

But why are skill levels are written level by level, I can understand not wanting a short story but its just too much. I hope that Book 2 will not have them as much.

Like watching someone else play an RPG videogame

like RPGs the book goes thru a tutorial/intro. Bit dull but necessary. eventually the story picks up and becomes a good adventure.
