    The real question is, is it worthing putting the effort into googling the name and downloading the pdfs or epubs.

    Haven’t read it myself yet, maybe I’ll give it a go.

    In my opinion, yes. I've got the book till Vol.10. that was in a short span of 2 months.
    The reason I stopped? Well not enough time to read.

    I don't think that the light novel series is worth it from the seven volumes I read.

    It goes ridiculously off the rails from their original premise into alternate dimensions where they don't speak the language and spend months just scavenging and bartering for food to eat, Ranta remains exactly the same and only solely exists to fill up literally half the word count by repeating the situation in dialogue or saying stupid shit, and a bunch of high level people cares about them for no real reason except that Haru seems to have a small bit of leadership skills. There really is absolutely no reason for people to care about them, especially since they somehow do not become more powerful or skillful despite everything. The author recognizes that the story got popular from them being low-levels and decides to keep them low-levels.

    Not worth it.

    This book is the classic case of a slow paced and somewhat boring book that gets lauded as deep and thought provoking. Its clear that the author was going for a more character drama fantasy story but in my opinion it just doesn't really work with the light novel writing style.
    This book doesn't work as mindless entertainment nor is it a convincing drama. skip unless you watched the anime and just had to have more.

    I cant speak for the books, as I never got around to reading them, but I thought the anime was great, so I would at least recommend that.
