I got this for free, the controls was a mess. Whenever I use jump or jumpers, its hard to control the hero and always messed up. Edited: I played the Campaign or whatever it was but so far, I haven't found any texts or dialouges from the main character. Reply: I guess, but you guys should highlight the savepoint and the goals and screws. It's hard to see if your color blind and the color designs are unequal, I have a hard time pinpointing screws and the platforms, please and thanks~!
this android game is out too early. Most of the things promised that i would obtain are actually comming soon, meaning that if i hadnt gotten this android game threw a sale i would have been scammed. the jump physics are weird and when i use a controller there is too much imput deley (only on this game). there is also a delay from when i hit the wall to when i can actually wall jump. The android game itself is very zoomed out making it hard to see things like screws, sawblades and even your character.
Really enjoyable novel that offers a special take on the isekai (other world) genre that you see a lot nowadays. While there were initial issues with the volume when it launched (was only downloading the preview and not the full version) a fast chat with Amazon got it fixed right away. Not sure if this applies to people who order it now but it was a issue for pre-orders and people who bought it early on. Don't be scared of the low star reviews as they are mostly for the above reason. Hopefully those change as people obtain their books to work because this is a really fun novel. Can;t wait to read more.
An excellent, interesting story and well-written. I really like the premise and the writing so far. The full story is now available. For those of you, like me, who downloaded the novel before the author fixed the download problem, the following steps worked:1. Send a support request to Amazon. (they responded within an hour)2. Deregister your device.3. Delete the kindle app.4. Reinstall the kindle ease note that 2-4 did not work without doing 1 first.
This was a well written piece exploring an angle on the "hero summoned to conquer the demon lord" plot that I had not seen before. Amazing pacing, decent characters that could use a bit more fleshing out but are still entertaining.When I initially purchased the book it was just the prologue chapter and I was off place by paying $6 and only getting a single chapter, but that has been fixed and you obtain the full book now.
A kingdom in economic crisis summons a character to placate an empire at battle who demanded either cash or a hero. Of course, the summoner gets exactly what the ritual promises: somebody to save their kingdom, not the empire. In this case, that is an administrator with a thorough understanding of modern economics and business management (a student studying such at a university in Japan who always wanted such a position). What follows is the hero's struggle to reform the kingdom through different scenes and situations ending with him having overcome one problem and preparing for the next: other reviewers have stated, it is not an action filled book. The character is a manager, and that is what he does best in the book. It is not a dry description of issues and sollutions though. Entertaining interactions between the characters, such as for example holding a cooking broadcast to showcase rarely used ingredients, are used to highlight issues and sollutions. The character not being a jerk, nor naive or constantly abused is also a nice change of pace. I also like the twist on the hero's typical role from a fighter into an administrator and ruler. There is also no self-pity or problem getting adjusted, which for me is a amazing thing. Mind you, he does not wish to be king, but that is shown more by him calling himself temporary king and not through complaining and anslation feels good, although there are a couple of spots where the book could have used foot notes. Sure, one can expact the reader of a translated light novel to know a bit about Japanese honorifics or at least to understand said discussion when talking about how his translation magic works, but there are limits to such primary knowledge. For example. at one point a town mascot is discussed with references to regions in RL Japan that create small sense to me and it covers several paragraphs.Having said that, at times the story does become a bit boring in spending too much time describing the globe or the situation. Do we really need a couple of pages explaining feudalism or that old families look down upon recently appointed nobles? I am also a bit doubtful on some of the hero's so-called modern sollutions (especially the forest management part is grating to me), but considering RL economists don't agree with each other and it is not overly necessary to the story I can allow that aspect gardless, I greatle enjoyed the book and I will definitely read the 2nd one.
This is an entertaining story - a fun afternoon's read. The main character's reaction to being summoned is really what sold me on it, but the rest of the book held up fairly well. There are portions where you have to simply shake your head and laugh, "Oh, Japan" (Let me just say, cooking show. And leave it at that.). In addition, the "pragmaticism" is not always well thought through - the tip given for how to maintain a forest would only apply to a specific kind of forest under specific conditions, for example. At the same time, the characters are likeable, and it's fun to see a character setting out to save a kingdom bureaucratically! I intend to pick up the next book when I obtain the chance.If you enjoyed the premise of this book, you may wish to take a look at Maoyu, which has a related theme of saving the globe through economics and pragmatic thinking, although it goes far more in depth. To my knowledge, the books haven't been translated to English, but there's an anime series that has.
If you like fantasy, harem stories, and the super strange isekai civil servant style story, I think you'll have fun this. The globe is decently thought out, the translation is fairly good, so props to whoever worked on that, and the characters are mostly endearing. Overall a win.
Only two chapters NOT the full volume the title needs to be fixed or the volume needs replaced.Ok contacted customer service and no need to restart my kindle just a easy modernize and issue solved. Review updated to reflect my view of the series.
Looking at book one. Already see a few amazing ideas coming forth and such to the point of a fourth General the dark elves as rangers and scouts plus a fifth on intelligence with the sirens ether method bravo can't wait for 2
I feel this story was very refreshing in a sense of not following the same beaten path of alternate globe Overpowered character who gets summoned. The character in the story has his quirks and abilities but uses his modern knowledge and experience to support benefit the people. I recommend this book strongly because I feel I am not alone in the fact that this story can also chime with you as well.!
Mike Chorost tells a story of technology from the perspective of a person who is trying to understand a very human loss - his hearing. He has a special background for writing this book, because he is a technologist with a humanities background. His book is personal, yet it explains and explores the technology of hearing amplification along the way. When he gets into the more geeky problems around cyborg technologies, unlike some others writing about these problems he maintains the human social context and considers the true social and ethical ramifications, along with the literary contexts. He even sneaks in references to some of our favorite film and TV characters, although he does misunderstand the Borg concept! Besides his ability to hold the technology problems within a human context, what makes this book particularly relevant and a amazing read is his allowing his personality to come through, with his foibles and shyness, his tendency to underestimate his own strengths as a seeker of meaning. A refreshing change in a biography! Chorost comes across as very likeable and genuine, and I found myself hoping for him to search not only his hearing, but also to search a girlfriend and a wholeness in his life. An all-around amazing read.
"Rebuilt" is the story of a journey from certainty to uncertainty, from the rational to the poetic, from isolation to connection, all via the creation of a true life cyborg: the fusion of machine and human. Having been partially deaf from birth Chorost had felt both a yearning to connect to others, and a profound inability to do so. Yet, when he went completely deaf in his fourth decade, and opted to undergo a cochlear implant, the fear, frustration, and struggle to both adapt to his implant, and adapt his implant to himself, precipitated a larger struggle to relate himself to those around him. The book chronicles both the particulars of his private struggle, and the implications it's meaning in the larger context of the relationship of technology to humanity as a whole. He makes vivid the practical implications of what appear at first to be only abstract ideas regarding the nature of perception and knowledge. A book well worth reading and thinking about.
Though a rabid sci-fi fan most of my life, I didn't become interested in the topic of true globe cyborgs until my own precipitous hearing deterioration. Chorost's book is fulfilling on a lot of fronts for me: his firsthand experience and knowledge of cochlear implants (which appear to be in my future); his very human acc of his social struggles; and his obvious love and breadth of knowledge of science fiction, to name just a few. To my own surprise, I devoured this book in a few days. One of the most engaging and satisfying reads I have had in years. Chorost, in my opinion is, to quote Dr. Eldon Tyrell (or Rob Zombie, if you prefer): "More human than human" in this work.
This book isn't perfect. If I was Chorost's editor, I'd have told him to chop a few things & beef up other parts (and particularly told him "Less about the girls, more about the code"! Chorost seems to have underrated the interesting-ness of his insights as a guy who knows about software and overrated the interest of online dating; cf. "Genes, Girls and Gamow," a related exercise...). But that said, this is one of the most striking and memorable books I've read for ages. Chorost is the excellent person to write this book, and his insights into the wonders & difficulties of the cochlear implant should be needed reading for EVERYBODY who has an interest in biotechnology, language, education, neurology, etc. A true must-read.
This is an perfect book for an adult who is considering a cochlear implant. As a person who was implanted as an adult and successfuly used my implant for 21 plus years, I can tell you that Michael Chorost has done an perfect job describing what the adjustment process is for learning to hear through a cochlear implant. His private story is compelling. And for anyone who really wants to know the technical aspects of how a cochlear implant works, this is also a very amazing read.
I want this book was in print before I had my cochlear implant. As someone who has benefited from this miracle procedure I highly recommend the Chorost book - a lucid explanation of what's involved before, during and after, comingled with a humorous and poignant acc of the feelings and experiences of one who underwent the transformation from deaf to hearing person in his thirties. Although at times a bit technical, the book is an simple and enjoyable read.
Rebuilt provides first-hand knowledge and intimate info of interest not only to scientists, psychologists, teachers and parents, but to anyone who likes a well-told, inside story. Entering Chorost's deftly described journey back into the globe of the hearing will broaden any reader's horizons. This is an necessary book for those who wish to explore what it's like to be deaf as well as for those who seek to better understand how to hold up with the rapid-fire changes introduced by the technological revolution.
