Rory Quinn is a New York police officer that likes chasing women, hard drinking, and beating the crap out of bad guys.  He's used to waking up with the kind of hangovers that leave most people curled around a toilet, but that all changes after one drunken night of revelry.  Instead of a bathroom floor, he wakes up to find he's been dead for 500 years.  And if that ain’t enough, the earth that he knew is long gone.  Zombies, cataclysmically evil robots, and techno-demons seem to be the least of his problems, as they all pale in comparison to his crazy immortal ex-wife!

A true adventurer

Style: Fun, fast paced, neither too serious nor too lighthearted.

Story: Good worldbuilding, lots of action, lots of movement.

Grammar: No errors worth complaining about, no awkward phrasing, etc.

Character: Very forward, "idiotic" character. Rather than book smarts, street smarts. Other characters are believable. The one downside to this section is so far we only have two characters (Rory and Aric) whose characters have really been explored. Which could get tedious eventually. But it looks like that might be changing soon (reviewing as of ch.26).

Rory Quinn literally crashes into a post apocalyptic world, divided between local fiefdoms full of terrible, strange, and also just ordinary people. Where most litrpg-esque characters are brainy nerdy types, Rory fits well into the archetype of the accomplished jock. Full of valuable experience in fucking women, beating up scum, and power dynamics. And of course, playing baseball. 

Watch him as he murderhobos his way across the former southern united states, violently not giving a shit about the lives of slavers, psychos, and loud mothed amoral narcissists and their followers. Walking into legend with a louisville slugger on his shoulder and a big dick swinging between his legs.

Delightfully Wierd

As of the time of writing this review, 10 chapters have been released. So far, I've found the dialogue to be more than deserving of the comedy tag. The setting gives me a distinctly Boderlands vibe in that it's a sort of off tilt post apocalypse that the the MC rolls with and finds humor in the time-warped pop culture references. Frankly I would love to read more works that get a bit wierd with their world building in the way that this one has.

Action, adventure with comedic relief

Read the other reviews for more info.

TL:DR Why the hell didnt i read this sooner?!

Honestly, I cant be bothered to spend the time on a more in-depth review, cause i wanna get back to reading this.

Here's the bottom line up front: good action. dark, casual humor. enjoyable.

It's written well. The first chapter was a semi-well-used plotline, but it was written well, preventing me from being bored. It was an odd feeling tbh, wanting to get to the story, but enjoying the filler and background.

If you dont have a bit of a wild side to you, then you may not enjoy this as much as others, but with all things ymmv. I personally find this to be great.

To the author: i recommend getting a good, fitting cover art to draw readers in. The one currently up is a bit bland, it made me take my time getting to reading this, which i now regret, considering how much i enjoy this.

i read chapter 21 and nearly died laughing. the line about reaching englightment nearly killed me. the humor is right up my alley and i beg you to please keep on writing. the interactions are hilarious and the characters are fun.

Came for the author's avatar

Although I started reading solely for the author's avatar, the characters turned out to be funny and very likeable. The story by itself is amazing as well, cheers for that.
