it was amazing

This is a damn good, solid, enjoyable adventure story. The writing was nice, rightly paced and with good dialogue and description. The plot was tight, lots of twists and a lot of interesting stuff going on, a real page turner with solid writing and interesting characters. Definetley a good I would recomend.

Scored a 4.5 not a 5 as, while a solid example of the genre, it doesn't do anything to try to defy the genre.

Something I will note, if you've ever seen Haruhi Suzumiya, the protagonists of this are very much like Kyon and Haruhi only there isn't the horrible objectification of vulnerable women and sexism that's in those novels so if you enjoyed their dynamic in the anime where you don't have to put up with as much of Kyon's sexist by-play this book has much the same dynamic.
