Well if this is the same author who wrote the Naruto light novels, what were those like? Has anyone here read them? It might give something to go by as to what to expect.

I remember the Kakashi one being okay but a big problem is finding a decent translation. The one I read was in this weird tablet format where one side was the original language text and the other in English which made for an awkward reading experience. What I gleaned from it seemed fine but nothing amazing.
When someone tells you, "Don't present your opinion as fact," what they're actually saying is, "Don't present your opinion with any conviction. Because I don't like your opinion, and I want to be able to dismiss it as easily as possible." Don't fall for it.

He didn't wrote Kakashi's one, if you mean this https://myanimelist.net/manga/86129/Naruto_Hiden_Series.
Masatoshi Kusakabe wrote Naruto light novels in 2002-2010.

His books on Amazon Japan:

Where's "here"? The Sakura novel released in English in the United States and United Kingdom back in May 2016.

It wasn't even the last one to release. They released another three after that, two also in 2016 and one in March 2017.

None of them are a few months old.
