    Still very well written and I like the characters, but this one didn't really work for me. The book gave me the feeling of running on a treadmill and never really getting anywhere. I understand the intent, but I found it tedious to read about all of the trains, lines, stations which detracted from my enjoyment. The author goes so far as to say that you don't need to understand the floor, trains, etc. but if so, why bother to put so much effort into them? Hopefully the next one will work better a Still very well written and I like the characters, but this one didn't really work for me.

    Dungeon Crawler Carl is a fantastic series and shows Dinniman at the height of his game. It's engaging, fast-paced, and manages to sucker-punch you with unexpected empathy for the characters at key moments. Dinniman also managed to inject a lot of humor into this series that helps balance the more serious and darker aspects of his usual style. I can't recommend this series enough and am eagerly awaiting the next installment. Dungeon Crawler Carl is a fantastic series and shows Dinniman at the height of his game.

    Another great book 5/5. The story just keeps on getting better. I am constantly amazed and impressed by both the author’s imagination and execution of those ideas. The are countless genuinely funny parts and it is honestly refreshing to read a book like this. I also applaud the narrator Jeff Hays for his work on making the characters come to life. I would definitely reckoned this series.

    [email protected]!t, Donut The author is a very disturbed...being, who has done an excellent job sharing various scenes of quite graphic violence and a level of gore that is epic. Almost no stats, but item and creature descriptions more than make up for it. Liked this quite a bit more than the previous novel. The MCs seemed to have a bit more agency and were less controlled by quests. I will preorder the next novel as soon as it is listed.

It is my opinion that Art needs to be experienced at an individual level. You are the only one that can determine what you like and don’t like. Don’t let others make that decision for you. You should definitely read the book and completely ignore all of the reviews. Or not if you don’t think this book is for you. That choice is all yours and the beauty of art appreciation. You are a much better judge of what you will like than anyone here.   
As always, I am open to debates and arguments, but also vain enough to seek acknowledgement, so feel free to roast me or applaud my efforts. Either is acceptable, because if you are paying attention to me then you are at least considering the book. And THAT my friends is exactly why you see my comments here.

    Anarchy put to paper This is a well written entry in the Carl saga. I'm not sure what the author wants us to think about Carl, but it's a bit worrying. The plot is overly complicated, requiring several included drawings to properly get the concept. This is the result of a too much flour in the dough.

The ticking clock element is ever present but our MC and his empathetic tendencies create ever increasing ridiculous situations he consistently bumbles out of none the wiser. In fact, the title is perfect! the book is anarchistic to any solid stances, giving you a sob story one minute, and then throwing that same story out the window with actions that directly contradict it. I get what the story is building up too, and anyone who reads this book will, but the author could cut the story in half and reach the same conclusion. It's good, but be prepared to get a lot of overly complicated explanations and a gradually very serious story. He's starting to remind me of Allen Moore (Watchmen, V for Vendetta). It's very cynical, light hearted and heavy at the same time.

    I'm enjoying the series. I rate a book based almost solely on how much it entertains me. For me a good gauge is do read the book, or do I watch my favorite TV series, or work on my game world on Foundy VTT. Since I started reading this series it's been almost total reading. Way behind on my VTT hobby. Good job Matt! The charaters seem real. Or, perhaps better to say well contextualize. I've yet to think to myself "he/she wouldn't do that" It's fantasy of course, but I haven't noted any mood breaki I'm enjoying the series.

Will Carl be J.G.B.T. ? (I bet Matt knows who I mean by those initials.) I hope so. I see him looking for that all important LEAVERAGE. Again, good work Matt, coming from someone who has read a lot of books (probably 300+). If I could choose 10 books or series of books to forget and read again would this be one of them? We'll see... This is my first review I've written. Perhaps I should be more critical. But, I like to enjoy stories not pick them apart.

All inside a package of crude jokes and explosions. From a character development and pacing standpoint, the DCC books have never failed to satisfy me, and this book is no exception. Even Katia, who started out kind of flat, is really starting to shine. And Carl and Donut are as great a duo as ever. I can’t wait until the next one.

    These just keep getting better. There is no other litrpg series on the market that has such a logical reason for the systems existence, or such a fun system. This is the 3rd installment and I feel like it is the best. Finally, the world the writer has created is fleshed out enough to allow some surprising twists and character conflict. There is more depth here than in the past. That isn't me belittling the previous books, I loved them, that is me pointing out that the world he's created and story These just keep getting better.

    As with the first two books, the story, pacing and overall plot is great. Really enjoyed the overall idea as well as the continued progress of Carl and Donut. The three stars is because I felt the subway setting was just too complex to keep track of. The author did his best to explain it via words, but I never really understood the layout or how the various components fit together. I still enjoyed the book overall, but just couldn't wrap my head around that part of the story. (which is, unfortuna As with the first two books, the story, pacing and overall plot is great.

    Carl, Donut, & Katia are still alive but will they survive the madness of the train level? Another fun, exciting, wacky, bloody mess of a game show segment with monsters galore, a crooked company running the show, and the last of humanity stuck as the players for a universe of advanced races. Although, they don’t seem very advanced when you realize they all love this carnage. I bet it would be different if it was them dying, and I truly hope our heroes manage to kill a few more of the aliens that Carl, Donut, & Katia are still alive but will they survive the madness of the train level?

    How could this series be any better? That's my review. I'm gonna copypaste this for all the books of the series this applies to. Carl and Donut, as great characters, make this the best "Dungeon" series I've ever read, while the comedy and world-building are simply SUBLIME. Not much to say besides that I hope to see them reach the 18th floor, no matter how many books it takes =) (FAIR WARNING: THIS SPECIFIC INSTALLMENT OF THE SERIES IS VERY CONFUSING, but it didn't affect my enjoyment of the story' How could this series be any better?

    Exactly what I feared. The authors idea to make each book a long read about one floor of an 18 floor dungeon makes this an extremely tedious read. You can summarize the few hundred pages I read into 'Train system confusing, what do we do?!'. The self sacrificing "I know this plan is fucking stupid but no other plan risks my life like this" increasingly idiotic and irrational protagonist somehow manages to makes this boring entry even worse.

    An awesome continuation Honestly the only downside is this book was slightly less funny than the previous two. It’s the only knock. It has a great storyline, the characters are fun and you get a mishmash of fantasy/sci-Fi so well done it makes you happy. It’s a funny bit that the author discusses a bad review and the reason behind it. If you think about it the saying is true. There are no atheists in foxholes and everyone is a potty mouth during the apocalypse.

    Another killer LitRPG from Dinniman! Matt Dinniman continues to put out ridiculously high-quality LitRPG. The literal and metaphorical twists and turns were very satisfying, although I think I'll need to re-read it at least once in order to fully understand it. As is promised by the author's note, there's a very complex puzzle at the heart of the Floor, and some of it can easily go over your head. Another killer LitRPG from Dinniman!

    Still fun Lots of fun I still wish there was more crunch. Some of the description get a bit long and I wasn't really a fan of the train system as it was confusing and felt like too much of the book commited to parts I skimmed because it was explaining the train system I was warned at the start of the book was confusing and not that important.

    Trigger Warning! In amongst the gore splatter action, murderation, and genocide there might be more than a single swear. If you're okay with all the adult content but swear words make you whimper, consider yourself warned. (I second the authors remarks to Jed.) This is a fantastically fun addition to this wonderful LitRPG series. I can't wait to read more. Trigger Warning!

    I like how much he swears The intrigue continues to grow alongside the characters and I love it, I can’t wait for the next I’m really happy there hasn’t been any romance so far, I feel like it always distracts from the interesting parts of the book and always makes me roll my eyes So if you’re reading this— please don’t add any romance!

    Hard to put down This is an excellent series. There is a good mix of humor and action. Some of these series it seems as if the action fighting sequences go on for an entire chapter. Reading becomes more of skimming. The humor of the AI is also spot on and makes for a very enjoyable read. Highly recommended and anxiously waiting for the next book.

    Cookbook means Dungeon Hack Walkthrough This book starts so over the top I had to put it down a few times. Then the story settles into the story that I really enjoyed in the previous books. The story of a guy with his ex girlfriend show cat that gains sentience when the whole of Earth turns into a dungeon Show for the galaxy.

    I laughed out loud and read the whole series in a sprint Intriguing, complex, and more than the cover and title suggest. There's an authenticity to the characters that makes this tragicomic roller coaster series just suck you in. Looking forward to the next book and, honestly, every one after that.

    Interesting environment for train lovers I really enjoyed the book but I really would like to see somethings pay off big for the MC. Always snatching defeat from the jaws of victory gets draining. Sucks out the satisfaction of a win when he gets nothing or worse gets screwed out of the big stuff

    Another 5 star book I hate giving reviews of books especially as I tend to spoil things for other readers. I loved the new location and the team building, the fact the mobs and NPCs are victims just as the crawlers. Read it an a day and I agree with the author, Jed is an A-hole, who leaves a 1 star review for a series like this.

I can't wait to see what's in store for Princess Donut and her sidekick Carl. Just like Jack Burton was the side kick to Wang, the true hero of BTiLC.

    Great book !! Ok I won’t spoil the 5 stars because it’s a great series and I don’t mess around with authors ratings !! However the subway system was a flop in my opinion I like your style of writing but the layout of the subway lines was messy and pointless . I’m excited for the next book
