The Earth is changing. The alien invasion brought social upheaval, advanced technology, and an armada of peacekeeping robots. But Alan, a college student pursuing a now-useless degree, cares little about all of this. He has only one thing on his mind: the Game.
A fully immersive virtual reality, the Game appears to be a major part of the invading civilization. Alan can't wait to play, recklessly diving into the digital universe. Soon though, Alan realizes the Game is anything but simple, and the stakes are higher than he ever imagined.

Quite good LitRPG
I would, as long as the friend is into fantasy or gaming.
Awaken Online is the most recent I listened to that was similar in nature.
Easy to listen to.
I got anoyed that his female voice acting at the begining reminded me of "kings dark tidings" books bimbos voices, but that was present only at the one chapter.
This is no tearjerker, this is entertainment for nerds.
Nice mistery filled story with decently OP MC
Rating based upon promise of future installments
Opening Moves is a LitRPG. If you don't already know what that is, you should probably move along as this book will probably leave you scratching your head. It is a story that combines literature with MMORPG video games (character levels, quests, loot).
The book is decent, but short. It reads like the first few chapters in a much longer book or the tutorial in a video game where we are still building up to something important happening. Opening Moves by itself leaves a lot to be desired as it just kind of ends without the protagonist going through any kind of character arc, so it's not very satisfying. My recommendation would be to wait for additional books to be written before diving in.
Nick Podehl nearly catfished with the voice he did for Daisy, one of the minor female characters, so, uh, that's cool. I questioned as to whether there was a second narrator for a while.
