My Opinion / Lazy Review

This is fun book that’ll give you more than a couple laughs. This is a great mix of comedy, action, and mystery. I would love it if this story became a tv show or at least got a lot more books in the series. The two main characters are insanely likable.

What will I remember after finishing this review? (Characters, Plots, Action)

The mystery about Sherman is interesting. However for me the characters are what shine through. It feels like you could put Sherman and Watson in any situation and it would be comedy gold. I also like Sherman’s use of his 5 minutes of genius. Every time he uses it we the readers learn something important about him or the plot. I also like the idea that his madness can be decoded into something that makes sense. And that Watson is the only one that cares enough to learn how to do it.

Am I going to check out more from this series or author after this lazy review?

I have already read the only two books in the series. I would also recommend you check out the audible versions for this series. As the narrators performance is excellent.

Lastly me, Feedback, suggestions, or recommendations about this review are always welcome.

Do people know of the genre of LitRPG and Gamelit? And if not what type of books do you read?

Anyway, thanks for reading my lazy Review!
