Lately there have been a lot of LITRPG books coming out into the market, some good and some not so good; “Project Daily Grind,” book one in the “Mirror World,” series is a great LITRPG experience.
I really like the pace of this story and the main character, Oleg. He’s not out to conquer the world and just wants to grind it out in the game hoping to make enough money to care for his sick daughter. Of course it wouldn’t be a good story without some twists and there are many quests and surprises as is fitting an LITRPG book, enough to keep the story very interesting.
As an old time gamer this genre appeals to me but it also intrigues the imagination for possibilities that may be coming in our real world. These LITRPG books are works of fiction but the immersion into a digital reality, where people can work and live an alternative life does not seem that farfetched of a concept; after all when Jules Verne’s wrote “Twenty thousand leagues under the sea,” in eighteen seventy submarines were a work of fiction as well, anyone can look on the internet or explore the latest in gaming technology and see the possibilities.
I’ve nearly completed the second book, “The Citadel;” it continues were “Project Daily Grind,” ended and, so far, it’s just as good as the first.

Unlike most stories of this type, this protagonist isn't an adventurer; instead, he is a daily grinder, working on earning money to save his daughter's life. He's one of a kind, in the game, and a 'crazy' now ex-employee programmer has made sure that his life would be interesting.
Well written and narrated. I found it a fun listen and look forward to the next book.

I liked this book a lot and have listened to it several times. The character idea story arc is good and world story is also good. There are a few inconsistencies, but these are few and far between and do not diminish the enjoyment of the story.
In the genre it is very good read/listen.

The story is ok, not as good as other books in the genre but overall entertaining enough to listen too.

Realistic characters, great flow and progression. Another collection to add to my must listen to list.
Characterisations and flow of the presenter just added to the enjoyment, highly recommended 😄
