The future is filled with self-driving cars, virtual realities, chore completing machines, and super-fast Internet connections. Yet all these technological innovations cannot prevent tragedy. Three years ago Grant Legate lost that which he loved most. His carefully built life fell apart in the wake of depression.
Now, Grant spends most days working endless hours as a companion to an AI. Their job is simple, to repair broken machines that humanity uses to visit virtual realities. Unintended hard work pays off after his boss forces Grant to take a vacation and try the latest game craze called Continue Online, a fantasy world with the freedom to play any role one might choose.
Inside this new game, he meets a series of AIs that are nothing like what he expected from a video game. Grant starts his journey from a very different perspective, and he is only one part of an AI agenda that will end up impacting all of humanity.

Potentially the Worst LitRPG I Have Read
I suppose someone who reads suspense or autobiography would like this book. It was notably lacking in RPG, Fantasy, and Sci-fi. Their was some future tech and some fantasy, but it did not feel like anything.
Replace the entire William Carver story and get to the game. And tone down the depression thing, we all have problems and I want to read a book without being reminded that I'm probably depressed to. Instead of a having a story of overcoming an obstacle like his memories and mental problems the main character stays pretty much the same through the entire book and you might say he did one exciting thing the whole time. I didn't care about him, his sister, his niece, or his personal psychologist AI. In fact the only humor to be found was by the little dragon killing little animals. If the series gets better then it would be a good move to bundle this piece of crap with the better sequel.
sure, he made no mistakes and relayed the story well
Don't buy this book. Look into authors like; Aleron Kong (one book on audible, terrific litrpg which was funny enough for me to read the rest of his books on kindle), Vasily Mahanenko (Shaman series is good, and Galactagon is better ), Alexey Osadchuk (Daily grind series which is good with a misleading cover), Michael Atamanov ( Perimeter Defense series of which the first and third are very good), D. Rus (Alterworld series of which all of it was good and especially after book 2. Very funny and terrific writing with expansive world), Andrei Livadny (Phantom Server was a decent series), Cosimo Yap (Gam3 and its sequels which are all good), and last is Blaise Corvin ( Delvers LLC series which is not technically Litrpg, but it deserve recognition and has the level-up aspect and a unique plot and set of characters who are both funny and vivid).
