About No Game No Life Novel Volume 1

No Game, No Life Novel Volume 1 is written by Yuu Kamiya.

Meet Sora and Shiro, a brother and sister who are loser shut-ins by normal standards. But these siblings don't play by the rules of the "crappy game" that is average society. In the world of gaming, this genius pair reigns supreme, their invincible avatar so famous that it's the stuff of urban legend.

So when a young boy calling himself God summons the siblings to a fantastic alternate world where war is forbidden and all conflicts - even those involving national borders - are decided by the outcome of games, Sora and Shiro have pretty much hit the jackpot. But they soon learn that in this world, humanity, cornered and outnumbered by other species, survives within the confines of one city. Will Sora and Shiro, two failures at life, turn out to be the saviors of mankind? Let the games begin...!

Let the games begin

by -

Watched the anime when it was simulcasting and decided to give the novels a shot and I was satisfied. When reading it I felt I knew more what was going on around the world than what the anime showed and gives more detail on the games they played. As for people who want to dive in this series who want to read rather than watch, if you enjoy seeing how people work around beating someone in chess or even rock, paper, scissors go for it. The story does get raunchy at times but it makes up for it with the setting of the world and the game battles in my opinion.

Great Fantasy series for gamers

by

If you're into gaming, whatever the kind, you will probably like No Game, No Life. A brother and sister who get sent to an alternate fantasy universe where everything is decided by game. Pretty cool, right? It could have ended up being really cheesy, but the series pulls it off well and balances its comedy with serious undertones.

If you enjoyed the anime series, and you can read, you'll enjoy the novels as well. While the first couple novels will be familiar to anyone who watched the series, the novels are the "source material" and go much farther than the anime covered.

A Good Buy

Good Quality and a good read.
Came about 3 days earlier than expected and wasn't even beaten in the mail. Worth every penny.

Probably the best light novel

by

No game no life is a lot of fan service (it's an ecci) but mostly a lot of mind game. This is the best light novel I've ever read and the book it's really worth the 10$. (the book itself is good quality)

King of Games

by -

Great novel. Interesting characters. If you like smart and skilled protagonists solving puzzles or just being masterful at games, this one is for you. Coming from the anime, the novel provides more detail to the story

Another perverted novel?

by -

Picking this up, I thought " oh boy a perverted novel" until I actually had the thing in my hands. I was skeptical since the first 3 colored pages had some "unique" art but after a few pages I found myself just flying through the pages hoping it wouldn't end. I was wrong about it being a perverted novel. It is well written novel with some gravure artwork that I actually liked.

magnificent

conceptually one of the best ideas to have ever been put written on a page and with every volume you're left with the feeling of wanting more

Very good read

by -

This was an all around very good read and what I liked most about it is that it isn’t your typical isekai book. Everything getting decided by games gives the book a very good twist.

An Excellent Read

I really enjoyed this book, the art is amazing and the characters have excellent designs. It’s also great how relatable they can be at times. All in all a very worthwhile purchase.

An okay book.

by

I picked this series up because the anime was awesome. I regret to say that I am somewhat disappointed with this volume. Do not get me wrong. This is not a terrible book. It is just not that good. There was a load of mistakes piled up to the ceiling. I found more than just a few minor grammatical errors. There were formatting issues, random switches between past to present tense, random switches between first to third person without any indication that these were the thoughts of our characters, head hopping, etc. Basically, the writing in this volume was bad. I do not know if it is due to the translations, or if it is because of the source content, but there were a lot of mistakes that would jerk me out of what was generally an immersive and enjoyable book.

On the whole, I would say this was a decent story that could have been better. The story is interesting, and the characters are off-the-wall intriguing. I will be reading the next volume because, well, why not?
