[ Climb the Dimensional Tower and have any wish fulfilled by the gods themselves! ]

Enters Josh Malum.

He was feared on Earth, but in this new world, he is but a Fallen. One that is forced to Climb. If it wasn't bad enough already he is also Classless, something that is unheard of in the Tower. Yet none of it phases him.

"You think I should be despairing? Why? Is it because I'm classless? They offered me so many classes, I simply refused them all."

Sacrificing the many worlds is a small price to regain what he once lost. To all the deities that stand in his way:

    *SPOILERS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW* Okay, so what can you expect from this novel? At its core, it's a magical realism novel where a magical Dimensional Tower suddenly appears in a modern world. Climbing said Tower brings wealth and power in the form of magical abilities and equipment (and levels). There are robots, holograms, and VR so this world seems technologically more advance than Earth. There is the whole concept of the world adapting to the Tower (business-oriented guilds). Now, the 6ada$$ MC. He has a bloody past with a powerful triad killing people he loved and him taking revenge. He is convinced the world is tra$h but knows how to enjoy it nonetheless. So far, we know he likes web novels, video games, ice cream, killer robots, and gambling haha. He also helps a friend, saves a little girl, and yet watches countless die without helping...he is no hero. He does what he wants. So far, the MC is mostly shunned by the world for being classless (He is classless by choice) but there are individuals that soon see his value too. For instance, while he seems to struggle to get skills, he has no trouble soloing content that people usually tackle in teams of 5. The way he does it is often seen as trolling whenever he shares his strategies because of how insane it all is. He also kinda joins the best guild in the world (assuming he remains in it lol) There are many characters and guilds mentioned so far in passing that haven't been developed yet but I'm sure it will come in time. Starting from chapter 35, the Tower actually starts encroaching upon the real world too. It has been proclaimed by the gods that species not clearing the Tower fast enough would be destroyed too. Yes, there are many worlds with races all climbing at the same time. How will that affect the world later on?! Weirdly enough, the MC is 6ada$$ but he has 0 cheat. His advantages come from the extreme training he has done on Earth and his resolute mind. He is steady, he trains, he isn't afraid of anything either. Being Classless means that he will forge his own path, one step at a time, amidst countless corpses...without being edgy either. Even when he is underestimated, he doesn't care. He knows his own worth, that his actions will face-slap them all at some point. So far, he has gained a bloodline thanks to a Feat of his in the Tower and proven how awesome his swordsmanship is. Last point, read everything the author writes! I don't mean other novels. I mean Author's note and Comments! All of it is canon! It is all part of the story! (Albeit mostly chatter, with sometimes foreshadowing) Hope this helped figuring out if this story is for you or not.😁😎 *PS Writing 6ada$$ normally flags the review and hides it X_X*

    it can be found that I do not often review or comment on the stories on this app by clicking on my profile name. however this book has peaked my interest and is very well written thus far(as of the time I'm posting). the only reason for the low rating for the updating stability is because it is still new(57ish chapters). I do wish that the author will continue to update and that this story will eventually finish since there have been too many stories that have a similar protagonist that either are dropped or do not have a concrete and satisfying ending. now this part is to the author. I think that you are doing fantastic and that the story seems to be very well thought out and written. I will continue to read as long as you update and I do not want you to take my comments above as me placing any pressure on you. my wish is for you to do what you are comfortable doing and if that means that you have to drop for any number of reasons I hope that you remember that I think that you have done a fantastic job thus far and are indeed one of the best I have found on this app. I wish you all the best.

    Review written after reading up to the last chapter as of posting (chapter 149). Honestly this is the best piece of writing I've ever read, the review will be divided into parts. 1.Josh 2.Other characters 3.The world 4.Story 1. Josh both caries along the whole story and also just feels like a viewpoint for the rest of the world. He manages to be funny in a very human way rather than just saying "he told a joke and they laughed". He has depth and background as a person but also has more aspects to him, he can be realistically funny, sad, happy, desperate, and even clueless. Do you know how hard it is to write a clueless character that doesn't make you cringe? I have never seen a more human feeling character that still has unrealistic strength and perseverance. 2. The side character all have real personality, real devotion and reasoning. They complement Josh just as much as thy do the story or world-building. They create a place, community, and group that doesn't just feel like an excuse to leave the tower. The author never creates a scenario or relationship just to throw it away and forget about it. It truly feels like they're a society with groups and levels rather than just MC, MC friends, MC enemies, everyone else. Which is what a lot of novels tend to create. 3. The world is less of an aspect than you might expect from what I've already said. The world in the novel is defined less by easy or literal descriptions and more by the characters and relationships. It doesn't matter where exactly the cities are, where exactly the tower is, where he even lives. You learn about the general world, technologically advanced human world that had a tower show up randomly, but then the characters teach you about the rest. I don't know where districts of the city are, but I know how the characters feel about the areas and what the place feels like instead of what it looks like. 4. The story is simple, it isn't meant to be about the mystery of the towers or the other worlds, it isn't about Josh's struggle to survive. It's about Josh, just Josh. It's about understanding him, how he proves he can do this, how he thinks in an unorthodox way and influences the people around him. It's the story of Josh Malum and his adventures, both personal (climbing the tower, finding something other than his girlfriend to care about) and public (teaching people, changing the tower, gaining attention, helping his friends). I don't think I can do it justice trying to condense it down into this tiny little review, but I 100% recommend reading this.

    This will be a long tale. Not only mine but also theirs. The humans, the other races, even the gods to some extent. I truly hope you enjoy it. This way they will not only live in my memory...

    I love this book, The MC is amazingly written, and dumbfounded everybody with what they can do. This is also one of the few books I have found that have basically perfect grammar.

    The story is great! It starts amazingly and has realistic and incredible points of interest. There’s a mix of comedy added that is fun to read, though it gets to a bit much. The story is great up until about chapter 215. After that, and even at that point, the realistic, action-packed and gritty story turns into a complete unrealistic comedy designed to mock the previous chapters. There are complete 180’s for nearly every character and thr progression of the story stagnates early on until it completely stops. SLIGHT SPOILER- - - - Josh Malum at around 215 ish and afterwards is a total comedy character thay does whatever he wants, mocks everyone, has this insane brovado that lets him overcome anything no matter what, mocks the military and uses them for stupid fun and the very-serious-very-strong members if society bow down to him only because of their sudden interest in a made-up guild no one has heard of except from the rookie competition. This “made up” guild apparently garnered SO MUCH attention from its mention in the rookie competition championship that the military and B/A/S rated guilds bow to him and his every whim. Then it gets to the alter tower and ifs ridiculous weird challenges that are so dumb and random it ruins the story almost immediately. Honestly, I’m pretty sure the author was changed around chapter 140 or so. Great start of a book, and I loved it. The comedy and how far it went ruined it for me. It was all so random and forced it was hard to read.

    it's just too simple. the character isn't consistent. there is no thrill. the writing is of an amateur who actually tried. i read till the guy reached floor 7 and then it got cringey, boring and predictable. The fight scenes aren't really fight scenes, it's just the mc doing things.

    An OP character done right. I love the MCs sense of ennui and complete disgust with society while still harboring a small flame of hope for humans as a species. This is the type of MC who will reach the top of the tower and use his free wish to tell god to shove it up his bum so he knows how it feels to be played with. Of course, that's my feeling as of writing this post. Keep the chapters coming! I'm interested to see if the Tower succeeds in changing him or not.

    One of the best novels I have ever read. Sadly it is dropped so Josh MF Malum cant continue his journey

    It could be good if not fake and child like character of MC. Its ok to kill time. It lacks depth. Don't expect anything new, its just old tower climb with lv ups... MC don't have class and decline to learn skills. In short he will create his own path because autor will make it possible. In short MC in a way break world rules, as such all of the story became plot armor because everything depends on author. In normal "game world" novels all have to compete within same rules and mc is better then others in same way. Here MC is in his own set of rules = plot armor, its impossible by design not to be.

    Definitely a must read to all of you. The main character, Josh Malum, can differentiate what's good and evil. His action contains, logic and reasoning, that explains on why he does that sort of thing. The author was able to create a nice balance of his character. He is not a perfect character that doesn't make any mistake. The world building is somewhat solid, it explained the different types of sector the humans live in. The place he currently resides still contains some mystery. As far as I know is that there is a tower and that after exiting the tutorial he came to a place filled with advanced technology. It's definitely not earth and I will wait for the author to explain what is the secret of that place. Who were the first humans who were able to establish a colony and thrive. Thank you, keep up the good work.

    This is one of my favorite novels. The MC is not only OP, he’s OP in a way we rarely see where every fight seems like a struggle to some degree. Not only, that, he’s hilarious in every way. The only issue I’ve ever had with this book is the worldbuilding, and that’s not even because of the author’s fault. Are some of the gaps in knowledge because he didn’t tell us? Yes. Do they exist because he didn’t feel like filling them in? Also probably yes. However, there isn’t a single gap in knowledge that he didn’t acknowledge and set up for the future. Unfortunately, it appears like this gem has been dropped, but while it lasted it was one of the best novels I know of. This novel was one of the first that I read, and it has remained at or near the top of my list since I first found it. All of this author’s novels are great as well, but this one in particular is amazing.

    The author uses a variety of methods to keep the reader reading… I also have a theory on what Josh Malum is. Although we don’t have enough information I was thinking about this since chapter 150. From the beginning we can tell Josh will become over powered. A strange detail was the iteration which was like 100,000(I forgot) an iteration is practically a loop.. it’s also known that the author likes incorporating details from different novels like naruto, sonic, etc… we know from the become that Josh Malum is classless but not really, his class is Josh Mother##### Malum… I believe that since classes are inherent memory’s from hero’s, somewhere in the future he is able to get these memory’s which is why he has such godly talent in a way.. the author says he is just an ordinary guy with a strong will, but let’s be honest… hard work doesn’t always beat taken. I know for a fact I might be missing something, but maybe others could take my theory and change it to their liking.

    The most fun novel I've read on this site so far (and I've read 100+ without an account)! Very refreshing, high octane and fast paced. If you are a web novel (Korean, Chinese & Japanese) rotten water like me, you'll find this very fun!
