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.

Another Book With Suspiciously High Ratings
A swing and a whiff heard around the world. So give this one a pass, trust me, the market is pretty much saturated with LitRPGs these days (and I am happy about that).
There are some good ideas here, and there are some entertaining bits. That's it though, it is not even at the same level as the sum of its parts. It's held together by info dumps, stupid, and idea shifts. The author seemed to change his mind about what he was doing or where he was going from chapter to chapter. The real protagonist is the AI Eve, for sure, because the person, Alan, that is the point of view of the story is...well, I think there is evidence that he is actually mentally handicapped. Forrest Gump level slow here.
And don't get me started on the plot holes. No, seriously.
The trappings are there, but they are all the same trappings as every other mediocre LitRPG, just with an AI in the "hero's" head as the overpowered ability, and some pew pew guns. Ugh, now I remember the so-called overarching plot/story. I'm going to go drink until I forget it.
I do not recommend this book.

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
