Fair Warning

I loved this book, however, warning, this book goes from normal to X-rated pretty quick!

Great listen. Needs edits

I loved this story, well thought out, interesting concepts, good characters, and development, with the exception of some of the minor "party" characters.

The one thing that really bugged me was the stat listings after every chapter. While it probably looked good in the book, maybe with a picture like a baseball card, it is annoying to hear the narrator read it.

The only other note I have is that it's very much a series book, doing a lot of setup at the sacrifice of its own story arc. I hope the new one comes out soon, as I feel like I just finished half a book.

Was not expecting that

As LITRPG's go the themes that run through this story are definitely more mature. For the first 2/3 of the book I was taken in by both the excellent writing, and performance. It has a grittier feel than other novels of the same genre which I found appealing. The main character has both an interesting back story, which is well fleshed out, and a relatable outlook on life considering his experiences.

The last few chapters took an interesting turn... what the blurb should probably include is that there are VERY strong adult/erotic themes with fairly graphic descriptions of sexual acts including BDSM and a threesome.

Not sure...

Was enjoying the book, then it went into fantasy porn for over an hour before it got back on track. Going to give the second book a try and see how that goes.

disappointing

Promising theme that never really got going.
No significant storyline after the first couple of chapters, but if you want to listen to a game walk through on the same level over and over occasionally interspersed with cliche schoolboy sex fantasy, this is for you. Very disappointing.

sucked me in, yet left disappointed

This was my first book in the area of LitRPG, the start of the book was very promising, and started to get worse from there. the book was slow at times and repetitive and had far to much sexual fantasy to be taken seriously. while i enjoyed it enough to finish i do not think i will listen to the second book and have found much better LitRPG which have better writing and story lines.
