The premise is amazing. When I was younger and devoted wayyyy too much time to WoW, I used to imagine the backstory of my characters especially when they first spawn and see daylight for the first time in their lives. BUT this book delves deeper than that. This goes into the xp farming and mind numbing routines of low level characters in mmorpgs. I wanted this book to push on and catch up to the exciting fun stuff, and at times it seemed like it was ready to do just that, but then it regresses back into the mundane every day bull that would make me have to take a break from the game. However, I AM looking forward to the second book in the series as I made it through this one. The narrator grows on you and you start getting invested in the characters. Even though I grew frustrated at times, I still stuck with the story and am wanting more.
I won't be picking up a printed version as I feel this story is best taken in through your ear holes, but if there was a graphic novel, I'd snatch it up.
Give it a try

Story is ok. Some original ideas, others not so much.
Was not a fan of the narrator or the voices she did.

An excellent read (err I guess listen) for those who love rpgs, occasional pop culture references and sci-fi. Well written with an interesting plot and delivery by both author and narrator.
the dialogue, character development, and lore is arbitrary and lacking creative dignity but suitable for young teenagers. the game mechanics are mildly diverse and the themes generic but seemlessly integrated with the values of the steriotypical young blue collar american audience.
I can't wait for the next series absolutely love it plenty of action in it
