Bookish Wednesday: Accidental Thief by Jamie and C.J. Davis

This week for Bookish Wednesday I’ve got another LitRPG for everyone. It’s Accidental Thief, Book 01 of the Accidental Traveler series, by Jamie and C.J. Davis!

Plot Synopsis: Hal Dix was stuck in an unlucky life. His wife is a successful executive while his IT help desk job leads nowhere. Even his daughter’s daycare teacher thinks he’s a loser. Hal can’t catch a break. Now a strange woman at a flea market sells Hal a bootleg release of a highly anticipated game. It is just what he wished for and he can’t wait to play it during his long weekend home alone. His luck has finally turned around, right? Hal should be careful what he wishes for.

Plot: The plot is pretty stereotypical, but despite that it was a fun ride. There isn’t anything super special, nor is there anything you haven’t seen before, but it is one hell of a trip. I enjoyed it immensely and am looking forward to finishing the series when I get a chance, especially since there is supposedly a sequel series that just started.

Characters: Hal is a rather funny guy, though his luck really is terrible. K on the other hand is an excellent side character and one I enjoyed quite a bit. I’m hoping to see more of K in later books.

Overall: A good, fun read. Nothing new, with plenty of tropes played straight, but amusing and enjoyable enough that it isn’t too much of a detriment.

For those who like: LitRPGs, GameLit, Drama, Action, Adventure, Rogue Archetypes, Fun Plot, Great Cast of Characters.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.

  1. This sounds like a fun read. I should add it to my read list for when my next holidays come up, though realistically it will end up being a couple of holidays away before I get to it.
