Dungeon Crawler Carl by Matt Dinniman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It's true, this is one of the better LitRPGs I've read. Clever and creative and vivid, Carl the Crawler is outshone only by his cat, Doughnut.
Okay, so here's the setup. Humanity has mostly been nixed in a moment and the remaining millions have a chance to survive by fighting and leveling up in an increasingly difficult dungeon crawl. Add that to an enormous viewing audience in the galaxy, complete with sponsors and interviews, and this is just a sick setup. But... oh so fun.
The good bits are great. Creative challenges, funny nods, crazy convos. Everything else is the massive crush of a time-limit and a massive weeding-out of the rest of humanity. Only the strong survive.
Good stuff, solid on every level.
