Description

Large chests are said to encompass all manner of hopes and dreams. Men covet them. Women envy them. But one fact holds true - everyone wants to get their hands on some big ones.

The same holds true for one intrepid adventurer - a strapping young lad by the name of Himmel. Armed with his grandfather's trusty longsword and the dream of being the strongest, he sets out on the journey of a lifetime! It is sure to be a long and dangerous road, fraught with danger! And it all starts with a simple test - reach Level Five in the dungeon called the "newbie zone" and earn the right to become a full-fledged adventurer!

However, such things get hopelessly derailed when his adolescent mind beholds an exposed chest for the first time - a fateful meeting that would inevitably lead his life in a direction he never even dreamed of!

Content warning: Gore, violence, explicit sexual scenes

Since then, it has been the most consistently requested and enjoyed title by fans. So much so, that Neven Iliev finally decided to approach us to put out a full audio version of the first arc in Boxxy's adventures!

Really Entertaining

This is a very different take on LitRPG! If you're expecting a traditional story about a gamer that gets sucked into a VRMMORPG and works to level up, this is not that type of book. It doesn't really have a traditional story structure or an antagonist. It's just a bawdy tale about a monster's adventures in a world that happens to operate with the same mechanics as a game.

What this book did have was humor, and plenty of it. It was a really entertaining and fun read. The characters were hilarious, and had me snort laughing out loud. The story flowed right along, the main character was unexpected, and the whole thing was well-written. Ugh, I resisted hard, but yes, I'll say it. This book was tasty.

Jeff Hays' performance was outstanding, it really suited the book. He had great comedic timing and just delivered those deadpan lines perfectly. He performed different voices for each character, including female voices, and there were some awesome sound effects. It just brought the whole thing up a notch, the book would have been a fun read, but the narration made it a hilarious listen.

Although I loved most of it, I wouldn't recommend reading this book if you're easily offended. It spends a lot of time satirizing women (God I hope it's satire). I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Not what I expected, but great "RPG" fun

I don't think the Audible book description quite fits, but if you've ever played an RPG video game WoW or D&D this story is a great twist on some classic tropes of the genre. No, this is not some high level thought provoking fiction. It's a fun witty and entertaining story masterfully performed. I agree with some reviewers that the material is a bit juvenile, but that's what makes it so fun. Ever wonder what it would be like to live in one of the campaign worlds from any of the great RPG games? What about the lives of the monsters you always fight? Then read/listen to this book and prepare to laugh aloud while also feeling oddly connected to the most unique anti hero I've come across in some time.

Not comedy

I was trying to find a funny book to listen to. This ended up not being super funny but definitely entertaining. A little graphic at times. Overall pretty good.

hard to swallow ;) but entertaining

Have you ever listened to one of those books or watched a movie where you listened to the main bad guy, then found yourself low key agreeing with him. Then you start rooting for the bad guys in a weird way.... well this is the exact opposite of that. The main character is a monster with no sense of morality and very little attachment to others. Most of the time your actually kind of hoping someone kills it. People mercilessly die around the MC. So if you have ever played the game grand theft auto and have gone on murderous rampages for amusement, put yourself in that mindset.

Besides the obvious way you can not identify with the main character, this book is extremely entertaining in a perverse kind of way. Honestly dont be discouraged from listening to it. Just brace yourself for a touch of inner turmoil when the MC literally eats a character you may have ended up liking.

Oh and if your wondering if the MC is ever less.. umm stupid eventually it picks up a few brain cells. So if your bothered by its intelligence level just hold on a little. Its just gotta level...alot

Silly, funny and hard to put down

This is the first LitRPG that was written to be purposefully silly. They did a good job, I was tired of the "same old"..

Great mix of dark comedy & litrpg

From the cover and book title, was't expecting the humor to be so dark, but even so this was very entertaining. The "main character" is very different then most I've read in the litrpg genre, making it very fresh (the closest main chars to this being stores based around dungeon cores to similar outlooks). It is definitely worth a listen, but be prepared for a helping helping of gore with the dark humor.

Note: I received this audio-book free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher.

didn't live up to the comments hype.

I purchase this book based off of user comments and Jeff Hayes. Jeff Hayes did his usual impeccable job. truly is a talent. the comments on the other hand I feel were well off of mark. virtually everybody stating they couldn't hardly contain their laughter because this book was so funny. it was clever in a few areas, and a decent story overall. but it is not an overly funny book.

Fun and Lighthearted Read

Morningwood takes you on a lighthearted adventure, with a very deliberate attempt to not take itself too serious. It also has a very fresh take with the protagonist, probably unlike what you have seen before. I also wouldn't be scared away by the references of sexual content. There is a lot of suggestive wording, but the actual sexual content is only occasional and over very quickly.

Jeff Hayes narrates this and continues to be fantastic. Everything he and Soundbooth Theater does is a cut above. Jeff is, hands down, my favorite narrator.

Don’t judge a book by its cover

The cover of the book and the title were just enough to catch my eye. The synopsis was vague enough to give me a glimpse of familiarity and the 11 credits had to go somewhere. “Might as well, Can’t dance”.

The story is unique, quirky, and for anyone who ever played pen and paper RPG especially a GM (if your brain put in General Manager, quit reading now) .

It will be a story I will listen to again, and with 6 credits still looming I might have to try book 2.

Story is really fun. But doesn't need the ludeness

The story is great, but I don't need the vivid detail about west the witch is doing to herself. Paint a better picture with imagery instead

What the name promises

The story is a simple one but also a fun one.
If you like non conventional fantasy you found the right book.

The writing is fun and light hearted and so is the narration there are a few special effects that really add to the entertainment.
A+

Simply fun

Going into this I was expecting a fantasy story more on the naughty side. What I got was much better as I instantly fell in love with the bloodthirsty protagonist and found myself invested in his continued growth of might and levels!
Very funny and occasionally quite surprising. Very good narrator as well.

Eine Truhe als Hauptcharakter...

klingt komisch, ist aber überraschend unterhaltsam. Ein Mimmic, der durch eine Reihe von Zufällen zum Schrecken und Zerstörer ganzer Landstriche wird.
2 Sterne Abzug weil ausnahmslos jede Frau sexualisiert wird und grundsätzliche eher wenig Mühe in alle anderen Details wie Charakterdarstellung und Glaubwürdigkeit gesteckt wurde.

Amüsant geschrieben, exzellent vorgetragen

Eins der bücher die immer mehr fahrt aufnehmen bis man sich am ende gleich den zweiten teil holt.

Manchmal etwas krude beschrieben, aber ich finde das gehört zum charme

Exceptional book and narration -- very "tasty", to state it in the words of the main character.

enjoyable story. production flawed

the fact there was effort to give each character a distinct voice was nice.. but there always being a silent cut off at the beginning of each chapter pulls you out of it each time.

selten so was Ödes gehört

Truhen, die Menschen fressen und sich dadurch upgraden. Das ist nichts für mich. Ansonsten bis Kapitel 10 keine Handlung. Direkt deinstalliert
