    1. Odd little LitRPG 3.5 starsThis is one of those novels that kind of celebrate being a RPG geek. As anyone who ever made a characters and entered a dungeon will know: Dungeons are weird. Well if you think about it for a minute. Monsters who live without food, water or light, traps that work perfectly after eons without maintenance and high level loot that drops randomly from odd places. Well this novel gives you all the answers you ever wanted. Meet Cal a baby Dungeonhart and our protagonist. Lea [...]

    2. If (Like me) you're an old hand at adventuringyou've traveled multiple worlds in different universes fighting and conquering with different and varied groups of co-adventurers (or even on your own) then you've been there. You've spent many hours finding and disarming traps, searching for and finding secret doors while slashing through and slaying horrific and deadly monsters. You've tracked through the dungeons of Dungeons & Dragons, you've fought through the underground lairs in Diablo (not [...]

    3. weatherwaxreportBingo Squares: Debut Novel, Indie Author, Audiobook, Non human POVI am burning through Indie Authors recently and I'm enjoying myself so much!This book is going to be pretty audience specific, after reading Andrew Rowe's Sufficiently Advanced Magic and enjoying my first LitRPG I decided I'd check out some more.If you enjoyed his book, you will probably enjoy this book, but be aware this leans way more towards RPG than mixed with epic fantasy like Rowe's book.So, ya know when you' [...]

    4. An interesting take on Dungeon KeeperAs a fan of the original Bullfrog game (and sometimes of its various remakes or modern versions), I guessed I'd be interested in that book.In theory, it shouldn't really work. The real reason it does work is that Krout is well aware of the conventions of the genre and the tropes, and he does apply them with gusto and self-conscious humor. Specially when they do not make sense at all, like when Dani insists that dungeon monsters have to be called "Mob" because [...]

    5. Great book. Well worth the time and moneyI had recently read another story about a dungeon intelligence and was reluctant to read this as it seemed a rehash of the other book. Well I gave in an read this book and was blown away. A much better writing style with much greater character depth. I can't wait to read more(FYI the other book was Slime Dungeon. I liked it but the main character was irritating some times.)

    6. If you like litRPG or wuxia, you'll like thisVery reminiscent of Slime Dungeon, including the personalities of the Dungeon and his pixie/wisp. I enjoyed the supporting characters even more and the little side interactions are where this story really shines. Combat and such was rather standard and didn't hold my attention. Will definitely read the second book!

    7. This book would make a really fun video game.Dungeon Born is a charming book. For a story so full of death and pain, it's extremely fun and lighthearted. The book is about the forces behind the standard RPG Dungeons. Ever wonder why a leafer from Final Fantasy 6 (yes this is really one of the enemies)is not only attacking you, not only is some how able to hurt your monster fighting character, but also drops money and healing potions? Well this book gives a really cleaver reason for all those. Th [...]

    8. This is a light weight novel. It does not pack an intense story or high level of adventure. It looks the litrpg novels from the perspective of the dungeon. This was indeed a fresh perspective. I liked the overall feel of the book and I enjoyed reading it.

    9. So, maybe you know these people? They like to watch other people playing video games on youtube. Like to watch people doing their walk through not because they're stuck int heir own game but to watch the game. It's a thing, btw. Okay, hold that.Do you know the game dungeon keeper? If you do, that was more fun, but still, you get the idea. It's a game about being a dungeon heart and you get to control your minions and open up your dungeon and you are the bad guys killing hero adventurers who come [...]

    10. An interesting take on the genre. I've read The Slime Dungeon and this has some similarities. The advancement mechanics are different enough that it doesn't feel like a ripoff though.It was enjoyable and interesting enough that I searched when the next one is supposed to come out, which I found that it's soon.

    11. Discounted on Audible. Abandoned. I listened through six chapters (two hours). I just couldn’t get into it. Too silly for me, particularly the tedious mechanics and the dialogues between the dungeon and the sprite or whatever sidekick. It was painful enough to kill the interest of the heartiest of adventurers.

    12. Its been a fun read and the Author seems strongly inspired by asian light novels but it seems to serious at times. I cant get my head around a funny story beeing to serious at times. I enjoy serious storys with funny bits (The Spellmonger) but this was just not for me so enjoy, I wont read on

    13. differentI enjoyed the different viewpoint. It had elements of the type of fantasy I used to enjoy before urban fantasy became popular.

    14. I decided on a whim to listen to this sucker because I had a free audible credit. No regrets whatsoever.The plot was slow sometimes, especially when Dale's POV was rehashing information we learned with Cal. Information repetition made me very much dislike his character and dread his POV for most of the book. Toward the end I was far more entertained by him and lost the dislike.Couple of loose threads. One notable one being the dungeon core color. It's brought up in the beginning and then never a [...]

    15. Why I Think Boys May Enjoy ThisI’ve read plenty of Epic Fantasy over the years, but this is my first foray into what the cool kids are referring to as “LitRPG”. LitRPG is a very new (eg, maybe 10 years old or so) sub-genre of Epic Fantasy that exists in a post-D&D/MMORPG world wherein the adventure is structured around familiar gaming concepts (paying attention to things such as levels, ranks, etc.). I felt that was important to discuss before talking about the actual story. It’s a c [...]

    16. Almost GoodThe plot is reasonably interesting, but the world and characters are rather prosaic. The dialogue and personality of the two main characters, Cal and Dani are fairly weak. Side characters (*cough* Dale *cough) feel like one-dimensional cardboard cutouts. I wanted to like it, but it was just okay. Not a page turner.The sequel does have significantly improved dialogue and real personalities to the characters, if you can make it through this book. This book felt like it needed another dr [...]

    17. Reads like a machine translationWhile somewhat entertaining, the book reads like a machine translation of a Japanese or Chinese web novel. The cultivation grades is a straight copy from those books and is painful to read. It resembles watching characters in a video game level up more than watching organic people grow stronger or learn from experience.

    18. A comic book without pictures suspense, nor climax.95% of this book consist of explanations of the boring world building.

    19. A living dungeonInteresting story setup. Real dungeons - the kind that attract adventurers - are sentient things that modify themselves and grow (level up) off the essence of the things that come to visit (and die) inside. Throw in some video game mechanics and some vaguely new age spirituality, and it makes for an entertaining story. Next!

    20. Excellent book series. I've read all 3 books. The books really make you perceive the world through the 'eyes' of a dungeon, which frankly, is an incredible feat! I don't know how the author got this idea and pulled it off; it could easily have been an epic fail. Novel idea, brilliant execution. Very cool book series, with a LitRPG feel. This author has made a new fan out of me.

    21. Amnesiac MC, the mark of an amateur who is overly fond of adjectives. Reader showed promise. DNF 13 minutes.

    22. Listened on Audible and the book began so slowly that I originally wanted my credit back. But the sun came out, children started to dance and the story became interesting. Now I am disappointed that the sequel has not been added to Audible. The story is told from the perspective of a dungeon in video games and there are detailed descriptions of traps, monsters and loot for defeating the dungeon boss. While this sounds ridiculous, the book is smart and the second half is fast paced. The narrator [...]

    23. This time last week I'd never heard of LitRPG. Now Dungeon Born is my third venture into this genre (subgenre?) . -About Dungeon Born, I can't tell if this is a great book because I fell in love with it and now I'm biased. Engaging characters, Novel premise, Great dialogue and banter, Humor from sensible chuckles to out right guffaws. To top this books list of charms is world building. Amazingly consistent, balanced, fascinating world building. Many other so/ so books have some of these ingredie [...]

    24. This was such a fantastic book for a variety of reasons and I enjoyed it immensely. While I really enjoy the Litrpg genre, a few of the common tropes can start to get a little over-represented pretty quickly. This book is a great change of pace since it uses an essence cultivation method of progress rather than the more common xp/leveling progression. The main character also happens to be a sentient dungeon that needs to kill adventurers and absorb their energy to grow stronger.From the get-go, [...]

    25. 4.5/5. Fun and comical, and great for RPG/D&D fans. It has action, but I wouldn't call that the main focus I would describe it as more slice-of-life-y, from a growing dungeons perspective and the people around it. lol I thought it was a unique and cool story, but as I was listening to the audio version, I have to add that while the narrator for it has an impressive range of voices/accents, he can be very over-the-top sometimes, making for some cringey scenes. Also, I love the varied characte [...]

    26. A pleasant surpriseFrom the very beginning I was taken up into the mind of main character and experienced his anger and confusion as if it were my own. There was quiet then, until there was not. As Cal would come to grips with the world, the reader learns along with him what it means to be a villain.From the high fantasy setting to the excellent storytelling, the author layers the world in such a way that the incongruous modern names just work. As I got to know the characters I couldn't help but [...]

    27. This is one of those rare ones which is elevated by an execution of a concept to something really great. It's in the telling that this story really comes alive. The world building and magic system is cool, there are a few aspects of the writing that could do with a bit of polish, but none hit the core of why I think it deserves five stars. I can't quite put my finger on it. The uniqueness of Cal? The underdog-come-good of Dale? The humour? I did genuinely laugh out loud several times. Ultimately [...]

    28. So, I found myself effectively cheering for the death of just about everyone. Now that's a weird sentence to actually have to say out loud. But honestly, Cal is amazingly childish and knowledgeable. He loves to game, loves to build bigger and better things to give those that dive into his depths a harder challenge. He's a good sport when he loses, and he rewards those that amaze him. He is an amazing character, despite the fact that he's a mother fucking dungeon. I found myself cheering for Cal. [...]
