Codename: Freedom - The Goblin Siege (English Edition) Reviews
A fascinating story, that has a lot of potential, and the author does it justice. The characters are interesting and well rounded. The editing needs some work though, small mistakes, such as using "than" when it should be "then" or vice versa can be found throughout the book. 4.5/5
The story was interesting enough I read both books, but I'm unsure whether I'll continue the series, if and when the next one comes out. These books need a good editor. While there are very few out and out spelling mistakes and the like - someone did proofreading, at least - there are a number of grammatical errors left. Worse, there are multiple instances of wrong words used for the context, some of them repeatedly. I found myself facepalming every time fighters "collapsed" on an enemy, when they actually "converged", for instance. Worst of all, there were any number of instances of emotions and reactions of the MC and others which simply did not compute for me. For instance, he is always "outraged" and "wrathful" when monsters do as they are programmed to do and hurt Players. The Players are there of their own free will and can leave any time - so why the outrage? There are other examples, but I'll leave it at that. All in all, a reasonably good read, but needs some work to be really good.
es ist ein typisches zweites Buch in guten Buchserie.Die Welt und Charakter werden weiter aufgebaut und dürfen sich entwickeln, mit guter Aktion zum Schluss. Kann die Codename Freedom Reihe nur empfehlen
I’ll admit right off the bat, I’m a fan of this series and the author. I remember reading it on the Royal Road years ago and it’s still among my favorite. The serial online version has been separated into parts, edited, polished, and added content has been created so that each novel has more of a story arc.In this 2nd entry into the series, Lucius, the main character (MC) has just survived a goblin raid on his starter town and now he’s looking to do a bit of training. Thankfully the game provides access to the best weapons and combat trainers the world has to offer.This training, combined with smaller combat scenes, character and story development make up 70% of the novel. If you’re a fan of those training scenes in DBZ or Rocky then you’ll love this part of the story. It’s among the best training stuff that I’ve read. In addition to general endurance and weight training, there’s philosophy, live combat work, and specialized weapon training. I especially like the spear and shield training.There’s a detailed game system in place that measures growth in not just the standard strength, dexterity, intelligence but rather it uses detailed ranking system for things like speed, quickness, fast twitch muscles, anaerobic, and more. Stuff you’d be more likely to come across in sports medicine or with a professional trainer. It’s an interesting change on measuring growth.The last 30% of the story is this big epic fight against a goblin town. While there’s a lot more combat here, I liked it slightly less than the training stuff. I think that’s because the scope of the majority of the battles here are just too big for me to imagine well. It’s a challenge to picture tens of thousands of people in a battle and not have everything blur together a bit.Overall, a really good novel. The focus on training worked well for me. But I love those training scenes in the Rocky movies. If you don’t like that kind of stuff, you may find all the training less interesting.Score: 7 out of 10
First let me say that I rate books base on how much I enjoyed it and wether I would read it again. 3 stars I liked but wouldn’t read it again. 4 stars I might read it again and 5 stars I will read it more than twice at least.I have read quite a lot of litrpg and gamelit books in the last few years. And there have been a few books I would read more than once. This book is one I have read 2 twice since it has come out earlier this month.I liked how there was development to the characters and the author didn’t just make the mc op. You get the sense that the character is working for his abilities and not just granted them. There’s been growth as a character and I am very interested to see where this series goes.On a side note one thing we have struggled with in this genre is editing. There are plenty of books that have great story ideas but lose you in the horrible punctuation and copy editing. This is not one of those. I have not noticed any glaring mistakes and have felt the story has come together well.
I really enjoyed the story. The main character must work for everything he gets and he is never the strongest in the world. He puts in constant work to achieve a level on par with the other players that he befriends.The character shows real depth in that he has character flaws he struggles to deal with and over come. He works to get stronger physically as well as mentally throughout the story.It was a enjoyable read. A warning for some is there are a number of typos throughout the novel. For me it wasn't enough to jar me from the book but it is noticeable.
I loved both books I've read in this series. Something about it just reached out and grabbed me. The MC in most LitRPG's I've read is either A.) Overpowered and trounces everyone or B.) Able to defeat enemy after enemy even though they are considerably weaker through sheer luck or cunning. I enjoyed the fact that the MC struggled with numerous different issues and from the beginning was surrounded by those more powerful than him, pushing him to improve.You'd think reading a large chunk of the book describing essentially, training, would be extremely dull, but that was absolutely not the case.I am bummed and excited all at the same time that we are only weeks into the journey of Lucius. While it means there is a ton more to come which is exciting, I also want to see all of the hinted plot developments come to fruition.In short, buy the books, read them and enjoy the heck out of them. I took a chance on an author I hadn't even heard of and it paid off big time.
Cons:- The author didn't track the spending of advancement and ability points very well. I couldn't verify the purchases due to low quality character sheets.- In one chapter the main character unlocks the communication upgrade, which comes with private messaging then in a later chapter he is complaining about not having access to the private messaging system. ???Pros:- the technical side of working out and learning to fight held my attention long enough to see the end of the book.
