Publisher's Summary

What do you have when you blend a pinch of LitRPG, a touch of farming simulator, a sprinkle of epic fantasy, a whole cup of Isekai, and a dash of Home Alone? You have Arnold’s life.

Accidentally murdered by a cleric in another universe during a botched resurrection, Arnold, a semi-pro gamer, wakes upon an altar to find himself incarnated into the overweight body of a farmer who could have been his fatter twin. He’s not the hero. He’s not the villain. He’s certainly not the chosen one who is there to save the world. He’s a clerical error.

It could be a bad joke, but apparently, it happens so often that they have a standard procedure for returning you. That standard procedure doesn't apply to Arnold.

Now stuck on a new Earth, in a new universe, with no way home, Arnold must use his gaming skills to figure out how to level his farmer class to 100 and gain a second class which doesn't make him want to beat his head against the wall. There is just one small problem: Farmers don't gain experience from killing monsters. Like at all.

Follow Arnold on his hilarious journey as he stubbornly comes to grips with his new reality and tries to change his destiny from that of your typical farmer.

Great Game Story

I really liked this story. I am not a gamer so some of the terminology was lost on me, but I really enjoyed the story. I thought Arnold was a really likeable character & I liked the side characters that are supposed to be liked. The world described was interesting & I look forward to reading the next book. The narrator did a great job bringing all the characters to life.

enjoyable listen

good listen despite having to use litrpg moments that make it harder to follow than I imagine a book would be but it never became too much.

some of Arnold's solutions such as scholars of music not knowing about using emotion alone seemed a bit co tried but it wasn't too out there. overall an enjoyable book.

A fresh take on the genre and lots of fun

A fun and entertaining read with plenty of originality. Covers the fundamentals of the litRPG genre while also taking things in unexpected directions. The main character is likeable and not too cartoonish, and the writing is strong. Plot keeps moving forward at a good pace, very enjoyable for a light read.

Brilliant!

This well written account of Arnold’s reincarnation as a farmer, provides many twists and turns to what should be a quiet life. He has a unique way of getting around his obstacles, which provide many laugh out loud moments for the reader! Looking forward to the next book, please!

Great Story and Humour

This was my first foray into litRPG and it was really good. I did get list sometimes with the way things worked and there are still some things I didn't quite get but it didn't take away from the story at all. I loved all the characters and the narrator did an AMAZING job of doing all their voices. I do wish there had been a bit more to the ending as it was a bit anti climactic.

Great LitRPG read - even if you don't like farming

This was an unusual book that I would never have picked up if not for the excellent star rating. I'm glad I gave it a try.

The story starts with an ordinary guy transported to another world and trapped in a body that can only gain experience and 'level up' through farming. Farming turns out to be about as boring as you might think it is, so the rest of the book involves him trying to find exploits and workarounds to rise in power without ever having to plant a crop.

It's a really interesting concept, and different to what I expected going in. There is definitely 'farming' in the book, but the story is more about bugs and exploits and trickiness than this being any sort of 'farming simulator' style read.

Writing was top-notch for the genre, though the story was occasionally a little slow. If I had to provide any criticism, it might be that there wasn't a lot of foreshadowing for some of the exploits that were discovered. The MC gets stuck in a situation, and then immediately works out how to get around it through the use of information that is only just revealed. It's a minor issue, and for the most part there was a really nice mix of action, town building, farming and 'new world exploration' that I enjoyed. Narration was decent - the narrator does male voices well but most female voices sound the same. Again, a minor issue.

This is an easy 5 star litrpg, going down to maybe 3.5 stars if compared to the best of the wider fantasy genre. I'm not sure yet if I'm going to listen to book two - the book wasn't the hack and slash adventure that I usually enjoy, but I'm still glad I gave it a read. If you enjoy gamelit I'd highly recommend that you give this a try too, regardless of if you think you're going to like the farming aspect or not!
