I chose this book because I love the narrator, and I was pleasantly surprised. I love worldbuilding books (i.e. Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordan, and anything similar) And have recently begun playing RPGs, So this book caught my attention. The book reads as if the main character is home playing an RPG, then all the sudden He passes out and when he wakes up, He has been transported into a real life Fantasy RPG! It is extremely entertaining

I found the book to be interesting and was able to enjoy the world building along with the story's basic progression. The narrator is fantastic and consistently adds to the enjoyment of listening to the story. On a side note: I keep getting weird looks from fellow commuters seeing me laughing and slapping my steering wheel/shouting "no, don't do it!" at my radio. I guess that means I find the story immersive. Please keep it up!

This book was gripping from the get go. The narration was captivating and the story is bloody brilliant! I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series !

After a quick purchase while on my way out of the country to the sun I wasn't expecting much. The combination of smart writing and an interesting plot idea has left me buying the next few books in the series.

I read the book. Loved it. Thought I'd try it as my first Audible. Loved it even more!

Where does The Land: Founding: A LitRPG Saga rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
With an excellent narrator, this audiobook is as immersive as any other LitRPG you will find.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked that the story stayed a bit more in-line with gaming experiences and gradual power. While the character does seem unusually powerful to what a gamer might expect a 'character' to start as, this is not a "powerstomp" that you might expect from the Russian authors. If you enjoy the journey of the character, this story has it.
What does Nick Podehl bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Nick Podehl was a great narrator and gave Momma a hilarious accent.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There is perhaps one criticism to be had, and that is that the main character doesn't strike a lot of emotional chords. He seems very accepting of what has happened, spends almost no time adjusting, and while he has an admirable motive, he has yet to face real dilemma and challenge. That being said, this is the first book, and I expect more to come when the budding relationships kick off.
Any additional comments?
A great book. The author is ambitious in calling himself the "Father" of American LitRPG, but time will tell.
