I am not usually into these types of litrpgs, where the world is a game and everyone knows it. But this story is a great take on this type of world.
Well written, funny, smart with lots of action and twists. its a hefty read at 25 hours as well. Shout out to the sound editors and the narrator who do a great job bringing the story to life.
I, for one, welcome our new green overlords and eagerly await the next book.

This is one of those books I wish I could forget, just so that I could read it again for the first time.

OK, so I loved the book and therefore bought the audio version, but trust me that doesn't always live up to the anticipation. Here however, I can confirm it truly does and is well worth the investment of time and money to acquire. If you are on a budget though, you may want to wait until the two are offered together as it is really expensive to get unless you have a credit waiting for a home ( and I really hope you do!)
Having said that you are getting excellent value for money as the Audible version is very well done. Jeff is a great narrator with good diction and timing for the pace of the novel and it is a long book and story, so try and fly to Australia to listen to it, so you don't listen to it at work!
Moving to the story and plot. The opening chapters are, to me a little clunky as the author assimilates the real world and game world to us, but some really thoughtful examples of what would happen to the world if immersion technology really happened, but this is OK and certainly drew me into the story very easily. Once in, it really takes off and the Main Character then starts to develop or to be fair redevelop and you get a rich game world and system with some clever mechanics. This is definitely a game world you would want to play in and be a part of and the system is easy to follow.
Leveling is well done, usually they kill a God in chapter 3 and then are uniquely brilliant. Here there is some uniquely brilliant skills etc, but the story makes it both acceptable and plausible in the context as well as some clever out of the box thinking on gaming lore and procedures.
The plot is good and diverse, though of course following a relatively predictable theme of gaining levels etc. But it is more than that and is engrossing and engaging so 10 out of 10 for the Shemer Kuznits for the plot and for the cast which also fills out the story. Lots of people for you to like, love and treat like old friends when they develop in Book Two..
Now I just want Book Two and the second book on Audible! No pressure, happy to receive them in time for Christmas.......
Seriously, this is a great book and a great Audible purchase and one of the very best in this LitRPG Genre.
Get a copy of this today if you have not already done so.

23 hours of superb audio enjoyment with only minor points the author should change in my personal view.
The MC is rude and very abrupt with very little, if any courtesy when initiating conversation with other chrs.
The author uses suspense at EVERY turn that it reduces the effect that is intended after a while.
(Spoiler), Not happy with the never ending detail when the MC was captured and tortured near the end of the book.
The MC is constantly thinking negatively and could be more positive at times. This would reduce the suspense sometimes but suspense at every turn is too much and made me jump forward in 30 sec intervals until the so called suspense monent was over. Just too much, too often.
Other than all that, when's the next book, I can't wait. On audio of course.
Overall, terrific 1st book, well done and keep it up please.
