Difficult to get through

This book was really hard for me to care about, and I tried. One of my favorite authors listed this as one of his favorite series,, but I just don't see the appeal. In a world where game players are treated like sports stars, Leo Lennox is the best You'll know this because every single person in the book calls him Champ. Everyone. Constantly. To a point it felt like they said it every third word.

Leo is an awesome video gamer, and so is sought out to help playtest and develop the most realistic video game of all time. His time in the game is the best part of the book, but we spend more time with the old champ in the real world. Where all he does is whine that he isn't happy anymore and he needs a change. He was so annoying. "Yeah, like by the time the ten thousandth beautiful chick hits on you you couldn't care less." That's a parahrase. Lenox is constantly sought after, and you have to ask why. He has literally no personality. Plus all the stuff about Jew this and Jew That bothered me. You just have to say or show his manager is jewish. You don't have to make it sound like some neo-guys worst nightmare.

I guess I am disappointed in that I was looking for a more gaming style book. Instead we get a good chunk of the book revolving around his contract negotiations. Oh, and for the longest time I was going back and forth on whether or not he was really in a game or in an alternate reality.

The kicker or me was we finally get to a point where he cn spend time in the game andthe book ends. Not my cuppa.

Story did do great as the narrator! Very impressed by his work.

Really enjoyed listening to this audio book!

Good story, enjoyed this book alot. Plenty of action, good character development. I only found one of the characters (will not mention who as I don't want to influence others opinions) rather irritating I understand that this is intentional but could be toned down a bit, I hope her development is improved upon. But apart from this still worth 5 stars overall.

way to much of a build up for a sub par end

okay, first of all you should know that the first *seven hours* are build up, straight up boring...
the in-game experience was very underwhelming even if you didn't have the build up, I get it the game world is realistic, no need to go on and on and on about how the grass is moist and sky is blue...
why the hell is the elf girl so one dimensional, you could summaries her completely by three words; dumb horny maid. and apparently all of the elves are like her, a fucking template...
no character development what so ever for anyone except for the MC, and even then it's only minor.
the only savings grace is the narrator, he did an excellent job and was the main reason I kept on listening
