Couch Potato Chaos

(2 customer reviews)


You know those times when you’re surrounded by a squadron of bloodthirsty ninjas, your back is to the wall, you’re down to your last heart container, and all hope seems lost? In situations like that, it’s important not to panic, to take a deep breath, and to remember that even if you do shuffle off this mortal coil, by the laws of Etheria you’ll shuffle right back on it again.

Meet Tasha, a couch potato with no accomplishments to her name. That all changes one fateful day when she gets sucked into the world of Etheria. Here, in this world of adventure, she can become the strong person she’s always wanted to be.

After rescuing a princess from ninjas, one thing leads to another, and before she knows it, she’s drawn into a massive quest to save Etheria. With friends by her side, Tasha must figure out who she really is.

This is a LitRPG/RPG Gamelit novel with stat progression, video game mechanics, and narrative spreadsheets. It features heavy satire and the kind of silly over-the-top situations you might expect in a 16-bit video game.

No velociraptors have been harmed in the production of this novel.

    I requested this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed and have voluntarily left this review.

    I recommend the book. The main character, Tasha, is transported into an SNES game world inspired by Zelda and MMO’s. In it, she learns she must complete a quest to prevent the world from being destroyed. Along the way, she meets good friends, fights monsters, levels up in her couch potato class, and finds that her experiences change her.

    I really enjoyed the humor and laughed out loud at various parts. I liked the pop culture references and found the story to be engaging and fun.

    Compared to some LitRPG titles this one is fairly tame. It tugs at my mind as a sort of YA LitRPG, if there is such a thing. There is a decent story contained within and it’s a humorous ride for the most part. The game mechanics are there, along with the character stats including some unique classes and skills reserved for this story alone. Leveling, grinding, saving the Princess, and other quests are the meat and potatoes of this first volume. Other sub-plots are discussed or hinted at; such as the mission Ari and Pan are involved in, or the elemental orbs which must be collected to satisfy a world-event quest. Each of those may be an additional volume in their own right. The MC Tasha is genuine, sincere, and fun to follow. The narrator, Sarah Sampino is quite good and supplied an excellent performance. I enjoyed this tale and look forward to more of the series. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
