So much promise...

The author had a chance to flesh the story out organically making the three girls matter as characters that he found rather than being given to him and the currency system was completely forgotten other than what it meant that his family gave him their money. There was alot of unrealized potential because the MC was just given to many powers and told all the important people about it.

Unusual Premise

The author is creative in setting up what is essentially an RPG story. The plot puts the mind of a mid-20s guy into a newborn baby and has him grow up in the normal way. The major flaw in the story is that by the time his body is 13, the mind has almost 40 years of living, yet he is continually flummoxed and bullied by actual children, rather than demonstrating the wisdom, accumulated knowledge, and social skills of an almost-middle-aged man. Because the author fails to take advantage of the ingenious plot device he invented, the resulting story is rather boring.

If an ending could be rude this is it.

I love this book and really wish that the second one was out so I could continue the story. Don't let the tital and the very brief summary deter you The story focuses on a chemist Danny, after a long day at work, sliping on his step and meeting a tragic end on his front steps. Only to find out that he has woken up in an infint's body in a new reality and world that has magic, elves, dwarves, wizards, and all sorts of supernatural creatures. Men in this world are treated a lot different due to the fact that only 1 in 4 babies born of all species is male. This adds an interesting twist to the book that I enjoyed. There are people who have made comments about the character reacting to the taunts of other kids but I didn't really see that happen here. I mean if you haven't ever lost your temper with a kid before then you've never played online video games. Yes this book has some video game aspects to it but they are masked in a believable way. Finally we get to the much raged about topic that is the ending. As for me I agree this was a very VERY bad spot to end a book on. Sure there is the need to keep momentum going into the next book but this was in poor taste. The author should know that leaving us on such a clif hanger like this will make readers reluctent to continue in case the next book ends in a similar way. This is like a TV ending where the cheesey narrator says "tune in next week to find out" I could wait a week but it is going to take months if not more than a year to get the next book and that is asking a lot. Regardless of the ending I still think that this is a book worth picking up but maybe after the next book in the series has dropped.

Fantastic start

This book started out fantastic however last third had me kind of go ahh. Before that part I had this as a solid 5 star book. I wish the author had spent more time about his life or even at the academy. I’m not a big fan of Harem which this book turned in to. I’m still looking forward to book 2. My advice to the author slow down.

Surprising!

I was having a hard time finding something to listen to when I came across this book, I remember thinking WTF was that book summary, Not sure why I got it. Big Surprise for me, It took me a little time to get into this book, It really took some time for it to grow on me, But by the end of the book I was mad as hell it was over so fast. Can't wait to the next in the series.

A roller coaster and one that I want to get off of

This is a struggle to finish. I say that as I'm three quarters of the way through. The story starts off uninteresting and takes it's time getting up to speed. That's a surprise as the concept is excellent. A miserable loser is reincarnated and given a second chance to do it right but instead becomes a berated and sometimes bumbling wizard who is inducted into the military before he is eight. And to top it off, he is mostly berated for his inadequacies by other pre adolescents. A grown man, trapped in a child's body. Someone hit the reset button. Third life's the charm.

I loved this Book and this Audiobook!

While it is rare, it happened here. Both the book *and* the audiobook were fantastic. Well read, well written, cool unique story. Nicely done Mr. Harper. Hoping for Book 2 (and 3) on Audiobook also!

loved the story, cant wait for more

author and narrator did a good job. i was enamoured until the end. the way the author ended the book was fine in my opinion. however, to some it may seem abrupt and out of nowhere.

Surprisingly good

The narrator is superb at captivating you and keeping you interested in the story. The plot of the book is relaxed and entertaining at the same time

Eye-Rolling

Like so many books of this genre, this author draws you in with an interesting and cool premise, only to ruin the story with a complete mess of a MC. The story and characters start off fine at first. As the main character tries to understand his new world and grows stronger, he has to pretend to be a toddler. This is where the story is the most interesting and digestible. But the story loses believability and relatebility once the main character has to interact with other children and the broader world. The main character is supposedly a decently educated adult man in a child's body; however, the author forgets that he is only supposed to 'act' like an 8 year old. I find myself constantly cringing and rolling my eyes in equal measure throughout this story. Watching an adult be completely unable to understand team building exercises or bluster at schoolyard name calling isn't interesting or entertaining. And, a harem of an adult educated man with a group of pre-teens is ... uncomfortable. Again, like so many books of this type, the author does a great job constructing an interesting world to explore, but utterly fails at character growth or even basic character cohesion. If watching a grown man get into genuine screaming matches with children over who's the boss is your thing then I'm sure you'll like this series; otherwise, don't buy unless you have a spare credit and a lot of time needing killing.

too childish with awkward harems

just because the main character us 7 for most of it, doesnt mean it needs to be written so childishly. it's fully generic.

Good!

I enjoyed the book and the premise. Struggled at times with the dialogue given the dichotomy of the main characters circumstances... But it didn't spoil a good story.
