Publisher's Summary

A world abandoned by the gods, mystifying cosmic forces, unimaginable power for those willing to ascend, and a hero who would rather . . . go fishing???

When summoned to a fantastical world and granted powers by a broken System, most freshly minted protagonists would strap on their big-boy boots and get ready for their stats to start climbing. But Fischer isn't like most MCs. In fact, he doesn't want to be a hero at all.

Fame? Fortune? Power? He had enough of all that in his old life. Discovering forbidden fishing techniques and petting every cute animal that comes within scritching distance? Now that's a good time.

Unfortunately for Fischer, cosmic forces rarely care for mortal feelings. He's hounded on all sides by inept cults, conspiring nobles, and more magical misunderstandings than those of a preteen relationship. Even his dutiful pet crab is firing energy blades like an anime antagonist.

So grab your fishing rod and a good snack, and pet your dog for me. The catch of a lifetime awaits!

The first volume of the laugh-out-loud LitRPG adventure series—a #1 Rising Star on Royal Road with over three million views—now available on Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, and Audible!

Such a refreshing story!

I'm piggy backing on another review about it being refreshing because I think it is the best way to describe this book! I found myself laughing and giggling more times than I can remember and use of everyday aussie slang was done to perfection! really really enjoyed this book and I'm absolutely stoked to start the next! Heath Miller did an amazing job with the narration also, I feel like he captured the characters personalities perfectly!

Wholesome and funny

The best way I can describe this book is "hygge". I love it! It's wholesome and funny and makes me want to sell everything I own (except Audible) and move to the coast. Heath as always is legendary and I'm so excited for the next book! Until then I will be scouting around for the best croissant in Brisbane.

What a find!

Like other reviews said, this was such a wonderful and refreshing listen. Heath Miller will always be one of my favourite narrators, especially after listening to the ‘He Who Fights With Monsters’ series! 😁

So funny and sweet

If you like Beware of Chicken, you will love this. And also .... Heath Miller, who could ask for more. Can't wait for the next in the series.

breath of fresh air

while I am 90% sure this was written by a famous author in the LitRPG/PF under a new name, I found it very refreshing.
since I like the previously mentioned author's writing, I enjoyed this immensely. it was a lighter, almost slice of life version of what I'm used to. looking forward to more in the series.

Very entertaining

A new entry into the crowded litRPG genre. It's got the good natured vibes of beware of chicken and the good humour of he who fights with monsters. I'm looking forward to the second book.

Wonderful

I don’t have the vocabulary or the desire to butcher a explanation on why I enjoyed this book even though I don’t like fishing.

It’s just enjoyable and a feel good book 10/10
