I quite enjoyed it. This is the book where the story catches up to the most recent episode of the anime. Now let's get into the new content! Hurry up and release the next one!
If you bought the first four books and wanted more, this one will doubtfully disappoint you. If you're looking to get into the series, go back to book one, seriously. This book has some nice moments that you won't be able to appreciate nearly as much if you haven't followed the characters through the series up to this point.
Without spoilers, I think this book was a nice opportunity for characterization for Lawrence--you get to follow along with his inner stuggles between the natural tendency for "avarice" as a merchant, and the changes that having a traveling partner introduce to his priorities. You also get a good contrast between him and Eve in the narrative.
I also thought it a nice bit irony, Holo calling God cruel for letting people suffer--compared to how the townsfolk began to dislike her for not always letting the crops grow at their best. I'm not sure if this irony was intended by the author or not, but it stood out to me nevertheless.
