Synopsis

“Um… Hello, I guess? Is this where I’m supposed to explain what’s going on? Well, I would love if someone explained things to me for a change, but whatever, I will give it a try.

So, my name is Leonard Dunning, pleased to make your acquaintance. According to my ID, I’m a fairly average high-schooler, living alone while my parents are somewhere ‘overseas’, wherever that may be. I’m tall, pretty fit, living in an impeccably clean house, and I attend a scenic high school full of friends, romance and coming-of-age hi-jinks. Sounds neat on paper, right? Too bad I have absolutely no memory of any of this. One day I simply woke up in this weirdly pristine world with a splitting headache and a nasty case of retrograde amnesia that left me a blank slate unable to recognize even my face in the mirror. Worse yet, apparently this whole place is running on fairly clichéd writing conventions and stereotypes, complete with obvious background characters and dense harem protagonists!

So, what would your average guy do in this kind of situation? I have no clue, but as for me, I decided to roll up my sleeves, grab a notepad, observe this weird world and work out what makes it tick. If you are curious about how deep this rabbit hole goes (and trust me, we will need spelunking equipment), you are more than welcome to come along for the ride.”

      In short? This story is great. Why? From the start we are introduced of a mystery that is slowly being unraveled by the MC. Where is he? How did he get here? Why is the world so strange? Who is he? The start might be slow for some people, but it needs to be like this since we are seeing through the eyes of the MC. He needs to assemble this puzzle all by himself and all we are doing is watching unable to help. Style, plot, grammar, characters, it has it all. But let me tell you about the characters. Even if at first they might seem like tropes with generic actions, it doesn't feel even a bit jarring reading about their interactions with the MC. No battles, no bs powers, no antagonist (not in the generic boss sense), only a relatable protagonist that is acting like a real human. Comparing him to the generic author self-insert that most stories are about would just not be fair.

      The mystery and comedy balance together well. The characters follow archetypes while acknowledging that they follow those archetypes, allowing us to not feel as though it is cliche. At the same time, they slowly begin to develop personalities outside of the archetypes, making themselves into new people. 

      I am curious as to how this will end.

      Hello Guys! First review here, but I will try to be as complete as possible.

      Grammar: It is good for a novel, and there are a few mistakes. On a more important note, sentence fluency and construction could be improved in some areas. Overall the novel is fluent enough and read-friendly.

      Story: The story itself is unusual. I read a lot, and stories like this are rare to find. The story is the development of a construct, in which the main character resides. At the end of the first volume, it is unclear what is the role of our main character. Overall the story is delightful, it is unusual, as I said before, so you have to like it.

      Characters: I have to say... they are unexpected. The characters seems "false" because they are part of the construct. But sometimes they surprise you, and you can glimpse something "real" from them. Overall they are as interesting as stereotypes can be with a touch of "strangeness" to them.

      Personal Comment: I liked this novel because it's new and is fascinating. What would I have wanted? Some more "acuity" from our main character, like trying to explore his powers sooner or realizing that something is really abnormal in his abnormal situation.

      Thanks for the good read.

      I like it so far!It's a good meta-novel with comedy, an over-arching mystery in the setting, a facade of romcom, with promises of other genres joining in as the story progresses. It is both a great read in the paragraph to paragraph (fun dialogue, descriptions and internal monologues), and chapter to chapter (anticipation, revelations and twists).I don't think it's for everyone, but it's definitely worth a try.

      Very well written and engaging. My only gripe is how poor Josh is constantly neglected. Josh is just a little too understanding, I can't help but to feel bad for him always being ignored.
