While I normally dislike the author reading his own story, Jason Segel does a great job of bringing his characters to life. However, his orc sounds suspiciously like monster with a fondness for cookies.
I think that comparing this story to Ready Player One is unfair. The only thing in common with it would be the virtual reality. The majority of the plot does not even take place in the video game. Otherworld is more of a setting for the characters to be in another realm and it is not described like video games in most litRPG books. And the parallels to Dante's Inferno seem evident throughout the book and it addresses similar themes.
You can find a summary in other reviews, but I would recommend this story to anyone looking for a story with a young protagonist who had his morals challenged over the course of his journey while trying to save the one thing he cares about. It is near-future sci-fi with great characters.

This book was boring maybe cause of the narrator (don’t narrate anymore books Jason. Ever.) or maybe it was the crap story but I was bored from beginning to end. I don’t know it might have been a better story if he wasn’t reading it but we will never know will we. Then it ends in a cliff hanger... just no. Cliffhangers are for series you want to continue reading this is not one of them. Save your credit/ money and move on. I for one am going to request my credit back.
