A Girl Corrupted by the Internet is the Summoned Hero?! My family name is Yugano My given name is Yuuki I have no redeeming qualities So begins this light novel of a girl corrupted by the Internet, and then summoned to another world She s jaded from having already read many stories like that but will that prepare her for what awaits in this world Of course not But she s going to plunge ahead anyway, and not slow down for anything Eliezer Yudkowsky is the author of Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality and Rationality From AI to Zombies He is a decision theorist specializing in self reference and reflection, a fact which unstoppably infects his writing no matter how frivolous Eliezer Yudkowsky, what are you doing I get enough strange looks when I say that my favourite book is a Harry Potter fanfic, now I ll have to explain why I liked a book about a girl who likes porn a lot A good illustration of why the genre doesn t matter, but the content does Before I ve read this, I had no idea that there was the whole summoned hero genre, but the clich s are pretty much universal, and the quality of their circumvention is easily measurable by the yaaaay s your inner voic Eliezer Yudkowsky, what are you doing I get enough strange looks when I say that my favourite book is a Harry Potter fanfic, now I ll have to explain why I liked a book about a girl who likes porn a lot A good illustration of why the genre doesn t matter, but the content does Before I ve read this, I had no idea that there was the whole summoned hero genre, but the clich s are pretty much universal, and the quality of their circumvention is easily measurable by the yaaaay s your inner voice excitedly squeaks when you like the plot devices Also, yup, if you by any chance dislike sex, thoughts of sex, eventhoughts of sex, did i actually mention sex yet, thoughts of perverse sex, the absence of the actual sex and cool plots, you might want to avoid reading this, but if it s not possible, I d suggest to shut your kindle and think about a certain beautiful country that is rainy, traditional, reserved and that has given us Doctor Who The intersection of decision theory and sexual depravity is not my usual go to place for light reading, but in this case the combination works beautifully.Although the book is woefully short, the author has managed to set up a rational hard fantasy premise that successfully thrusts the reader from beginning to climax Puns intended The book will beenjoyable if you have some familiarity with Japanese light novels, tropes concerning B theory time travel paradoxes or,specifically, co The intersection of decision theory and sexual depravity is not my usual go to place for light reading, but in this case the combination works beautifully.Although the book is woefully short, the author has managed to set up a rational hard fantasy premise that successfully thrusts the reader from beginning to climax Puns intended The book will beenjoyable if you have some familiarity with Japanese light novels, tropes concerning B theory time travel paradoxes or,specifically, consistency re decision theory , and advanced pornography But it s readable even without these prerequisites.I m giving it five stars because it was really good but at the same time I m quite disappointed at the extremely short length I feel teased by how short it lasted Japanese light novel style apparently means a very informal first person present tense narration Also, reading the authorial foreword, hero summoned to another world is a genre now.This was charming, funny, and very silly.I think I could do without the weird title, though If I recommend this book to anyone it will be as the latest thing Eliezer Yudkowsky wrote.Content note roughly 75% of text is about sex Text contains no actual sex. I would not recommend this book unless you arecomfortable with some of the less than safe for work parts of the internet If you aren t then you re missing out on this fun, cleverly written little story Crafted in such a way to have the reader laugh and think in equal measure The sloppy, first person narration compliments Yudkowky s continual emphasis on decision theory and gives a quirky feel to the whole book.Definitely a good read to pick up if you re looking for something a little I would not recommend this book unless you arecomfortable with some of the less than safe for work parts of the internet If you aren t then you re missing out on this fun, cleverly written little story Crafted in such a way to have the reader laugh and think in equal measure The sloppy, first person narration compliments Yudkowky s continual emphasis on decision theory and gives a quirky feel to the whole book.Definitely a good read to pick up if you re looking for something a little less ordinary
