Publisher's Summary

Launch day.
That was what they called it. The day when over four million people vanished in an instant from the island of Manhattan. The day earthquakes ravaged the east coast. The day a 101-kilometer tall tower rose from the wreckage of the now empty city. The day every screen, newspaper, and smart phone displayed a single message from an unknown source: The Great Emperor has issued his challenge. From the ruins of the Old World rise the Tower. Its doors will soon open, and the great game will begin. A hundred floors and a hundred challenges await the worthy. And to the victor? A Wish of Unlimited Power.
Cayden Caros yearned to play that game. His only problem? The Terms and Conditions. A strict set of rules that, among other things, prevented anyone under the age of 16 from entering the tower.
Forced to wait for over two years, Cayden did the only thing he could do to pass the time. He researched, he practiced, and he prepared. It would take a lot to catch up to players with such an enormous head start. Lucky for him, he was a special type of gamer.

If you are into Litrpg, it is worth the credit

The plot line is different from the usual approach to Litrpg. Usually it people accidentally get transported for some reason or the world is ending and people go in the game to seek refuge.

Tower of babel instead went the route of a tower mysteriously appeared in NYC. A real life tower dive with game like mechanics. Kinda like SAO where you will perma die but you are not trapped in the tower where you can leave any time. People just live there for there own reasons.

Its not perfect but it is a good enough listen.

Yeah, I'm going to be that guy.

Since no one likes long ranting reviews or spoilers, I'll try to keep this short.

The book in whole is boring, predictable, unoriginal, rushed and full of cliches. The speedrunning aspect feels like it was added as an afterthought and is forgotten after the first chapter. Character interactions are forced. Rules are convoluted to cover the plot holes and plot devices are just...ugh.

Narrator was pretty much the only good thing about this audiobook. Definately getting my credit back from this one.

made it through quickly but not great tbh

managed to make it to the book but the story wasn't cohesive and I felt as if it jumps all over the place. I wasn't sure if it's game or if it was reality.

performance was good but story not so much

Astonishingly Brilliant take on MMO stories!

First came across this whilst browsing audibles list of mmo stories and im glad I did because this story is enthralling and I couldn't get enough of it! I do think that Cayden can seem quite cocky at times but if that's his character then that's ok because it actually works and doesn't make you dislike him at all.

I'd say that this story was definitely well researched and gives fantastic twists and complications which really sort of bring the atmosphere of the fantastical world Adam Elliott has created, I look forward to the next audible book
