Not many stories are written from a god's point of view. There are plenty of cases where an individual has godlike power but still tries to live like a mortal, but that's usually the fault of poor writing and not a serious "god amongst men" tale (think Superman).

The MC here has just the right balance of caring about the world, yet not wanting to interfere with it, to give the impression of a proper diety. The main appeal of the story lies not in what the MC does, because he... more>> could do anything if he really wanted to. Instead, it rests in the mortals of the world, and how the MC's actions affect them. In fact, half the story is told from their point of view.

The only fault I can find is with the quality of the translation work. <<less

A good read for when you feel like it. It has an interesting POV of a god instead of a human. Sure there have been god like mc's that live among humans, but we don't really see stories told through the eyes of a proper god. It's very interesting because in contrast to the idea of "sloth" being doing nothing, this shows a dragon that certainly does sleep a lot, but he gets things done. The idea is built upon the premise that he is lazy, but he is still... more>> reliable and does what needs to be done. You can also see things from outside perspectives as well, which is another thing I love about this. It shows the thoughts and feelings others have towards him and what he does for them. I am always a sucker for multiple POVs because we get the in depth descriptions of the side characters instead of letting them just be stickers to add on to the MC and story. This lets them become a bigger part in the story. All in all, a pretty good read that you should take a peak into. Spare 1-2 hours on this and enjoy the experience. <<less

The story has no final goal but rather focuses on the life of the dragon.

It wasn’t unsatisfying so this would be a good novel to read when you just want to waste time or enjoy a really short novel.

MC doesn’t really develop his personality. All I know about his personality is that he’s really lazy.

This novel had a great premise and execution to a extent.. You can tell the author decided to cut the story extremely quick at the end chapters.. I do recommend this to people as it's pretty good premise but don't get your hopes up for a good ending..

This is a relaxing read. But do note that this is a short story with barely any plot or anything substantial.

That said, as long you are looking to spend some short time, like 10 minutes or so, this is a decent read.

the story tells us about the living of reincarnated person as a dragon god, who has the job to protect his area, even though his power is related to sloth. And even though he is a sloth god, he did his best to make sure the place he protects is peaceful to certain extent. His thought is pretty well-written and the story's chapter is not that long. His interaction with other characters can be said as funny. The pov of the servant of the MC in the extra is pretty... more>> good. The ending is thought to be open-ending, so if you missed it, you have to read the extra to know the continuation of the ending. Recommended if you are looking for short and funny novels. <<less

The Lazy Dragon is Working Hard is a fun-to-read novel from my view point as well as having its quirks. It is, however, what I would expect from someone who (I assume) writes as a hobby. It is not a novel that I would recommend to others to read as there are many more interesting choices, but if you want something short, easy to read, and funny, or just something to kill time The Lazy Dragon is Working Hard is just right for you.

Like all the other comments about this novel. It's short sweet and a hour read (personally would have liked more but still good none the less)

It's a short story you can read if you have a bit of free time.

It's the usual Japanese troop of bishoujo, Opness, Loli, Tsundere, Truck-san, reincarnation, and a little sexual harassment? Etc.

Well since the series itself was short everything else was even shorter.

Basically a part of a slice of life of MC's regular dragon duty.

It is a good story to pass time.

The premise of former human become a guardian god usually has a flaws of MC 's personality being a pushover, but not this one.
