Synopsis

So… right about now your probably wondering… who am I? Tobias Amadeus Junior! High-School Student, genius (self-proclaimed), and amateur novelist at your service… I won’t bore you though with irrelevant details of my previous life.

What is important is I seem to somehow be in the starting room of my novel… Although the room isn’t that unique by itself. After all, a pure white marble room with no doors somehow doesn’t seem that unique in the omniverse anymore. What is important and far more unique is the screen asking me to choice a difficulty level. Well, actually… It might not be important to you… For me, however, it is kind of important. You probably don’t care…

This might seem like a simple decision for anyone in my situation. But... I value my life enough that I would just choose easy mode and be done with it. Unfortunately, this decision isn’t that simple... mainly because (if this is my novel) there is the slight issue with that plan. The corrupted monsters, monstrosities, slowly leading this universe toward destruction… Ugh... Right about now I wish I could punch my past self who wrote that crap…

Author here! Now for whatever reason you decided to read this description (I cannot really imagine why). I would like to quickly mention that my story has taken inspiration from many other tales that exist specifically mentioning Novel’s Extra and Tutorial is Too Hard as major influences. While there is some suggestive content that would (probably) bump the age rating up to 13+, there is no explicit sexual content in this story.

My current plan for releasing chapters is to release two per week.
Friday, @ noon. (est) & Sunday, @midnight.

      Really enjoing the author's worldbuilding. The writing gots way better, and interactions feel more organic. It's worth the ride

      May 24, 2019

      I like the story, but the way it's written... It's like reading chat logs for a conversation you don't care about. It's super annoying to read one sentence paragraphs. Not sure why people think this is a great way to write, but reading it is just awful. The Author needs to have someone edit this into a readable format.

      The story itself is good, although the journal style narrative when combined with the chat log style writing kills the flow.

      Making it to chapter 25, I wish both the MC and his creator re banished from this universe. Congratulations - you managed to perfectly capture how an extremely annoying person feels like! Only it isn't just the MC but anyone he comes in contact with. Probably a power or an aura of his, anyone he meets becomes stupid.

      There's the utterly useless and constant POV changes, even within each short chapter (any of the millions or by now even billions of books written the last thousand years shows how it's done  there's a reason why 1st POV and frequent POV changes are only a major thing with amateur writers on the Internet nowadays).

      What is worse than anything else though is that unlike any humans in history, even mortal enemies, just don't talk with each other. Okay they do, but, for example, MC and the original MC (Rin, girl, supposedly the here in the novel the MC wrote, but now that he is in that universe he is the MC at least for us readers) face mortal dangers, and for no reason at all simply refuse to exchange vital information. There is no reason whatsoever to do so, but apparently at some point most of their brains were removed, even though we missed it - there is no other explanation for the refusal to ask one another even the most simple questions, even though they've been together for well over a year by then and the two even march together. F**k THIS SHOT, this author is stupid. Sorry (not really, for this outburst) - but imagine you are walking with another person that you at least slightly like if not more, you are in a dangerous survival situation, and yet you refuse to help one another by exchanging vital information. For no reason (no there is none, I read the story, okay? Just making up extremely fuzzy excuses not a reason make!).

      A simple example for the refusal to talk, MC is with Rin (the "ex-MC") and is wondering about something that she can easily answer, and would too (if she is anywhere near normal) because there is no reason not to. However, he just keeps turning in circles in his head wondering about the question and simply does not ask. There's a lot of such situations where a simple question and answer could be exchanged but both parties refuse to attempt communication, for no reason (they are on friendly terms and have the opportunity and the time), but we get to follow many paragraphs of their internal dialog that does not go anywhere because communication is avoided at all cost (again, for no actual reason).

      Last, the style is annoying as f**k. Especially much of the MC (Tobias) POV. I *don't* want to see that guy's head's insides. Not if the person is made to be as stupid and as annoying as possible. Also, Lots and lots of short single-sentence paragraphs. Sooooo much scrolling! Not to mention that half of that inner dialog can be scrolled over without missing anything at all.

      Compared to the above just an aside, one ability ranks up by counting down from ten, the other one ranks up by increasing from 0 (or 1? I forgot where it started, not important). I'm sure there is a "logic" (completely made up of course) but I missed it and don't care, because even if there is an "explanation" that I missed, it doesn't make sense to needlessly complicate things like that.

      Last but not least, there is the awkward love angle of MC and "ex MC " (Rin), written in as cringeworthy a way as is possible. Just leave that kind of stuff out.

      It's a shame, if it wasn't intentionally made to be so annoying it could be a decent story. As it is, I really want to help the bad guys kill the MC and to let that universe die, taking down the MC (from another, our, universe) with it. I hope the novel has that ending - for once failure and a dead MC don't sound so bad. I must admit though, my personal dislike for people refusing to talk for no reason (I'm not talking about "talk instead of fight" situations when encountering bad people but about non-enemies (allies or neutrals)), which is what way too many stories depend on.

      On the plus side, Stanley's narrator is quite good.

      Spoiler

      Stanley is one of those people put into the dying universe, also from the MCs earth (there are multiple universes). He has an ability that is a 3rd person narrator telling his story, always what should happen in the immediate future, so basically telling him what to do, looking like incredible luck to anyone watching. That narrator voice is quite funny.

      [collapse]

      A few spelling mistakes can be found in every chapter, or occasionally a wrong word, but not too distracting.

      I skip-read a lot, because there is way too many words for little or no gain. Don't get me wrong I like long stories! But here it often only is lots and lots of useless words and stuff that makes me want to punch someone. The entire "trial" universe starting for many chapters at ca. C100 is a chore to read instead of fun. Why is it there? Unfortunately the only "reason" for tens of the most recent chapters seems to be that the author ran out of ideas for the actual story, or is trying to artificially inflate it. There even is a gender-bender arc in there. There has not been any sign of progress in the supposed main story. It's like that funny commercial of the guy who wanted to fix a light bulb - but got distracted by one problem after another that he had to fix first, until his wife finds him under the car (which he wanted to use to go shopping to buy something needed in a long chain that would, hopefully, eventually lead to him being able to change a light bulb). Yeah, like that.

      Story started out on an interesting premise then continued on in an uninteresting direction. &Nbsp;MC is annoying and seems to fight becoming stronger despite trying to act like a flashy villain or giving away his strengths. Perhaps the most annoying part is listening to his mental tangents. &Nbsp;Once or twice would have been fine but you spend a great deal of him worrying over something that could have been dialogue or action.

      Too many POV changes and time changes makes the story feel more like multiple stories in one. Like Stanley could just be his own story at this point and I would not feel like it changes MC’s line at all. 

      The world building is good. I want to know more but with the current story will probably be on the back burner.

      I love this novel. It's like The Tutorial is too hard mixed with The Novels Extra and Omniscient Reader’s Viewpoint. I keep wanting more.

      Very good. Extremely good. I can't express myself online but just take my word for it. Among all the amateurish novels on scribble hub this is a gem. (Idk whether it's a hidden gem but ya)

      Its been interesting so far, currently chapter 17.

      From what I have observed, the MC is not flawless, which is good since having a godlike MC is kinda boring. 

      It's also good that we get to see what other people think of the mc; some see him as a strong person, while other see him as a weakling.

      The writing is good (I suck at writing, so this doesnt amount much)
