Would be great if it wasn't LitRPG

I enjoyed most of listening to this, and the reader did a fine job, and the story is good, but I just can't do LitRPGs in Audiobook format. I stopped after only a couple chapters and downloaded the book and read it normally. Every time I had to listen to them read out the character status page or all the details of every item picked up, I died a little inside, but none of that is the fault of the author or the reader, that's just a problem with all audiobooks in this particular subgenre

Not for me

I suppose I just didn't understand what litRPG was when I dove into this, so this isn't to say that the content wouldn't be what someone else is looking for, I just believe the story would benefit from not being interrupted by pings and notifications constantly reminding you that the character is not in an organic world/realm. The constant forced humour from the main character seems plainly out of character, how quickly he adapts and accepts to being thrown into a new world with no idea of how to leave is unbelievable, and any attempts to make him relatable make me want to distance myself from that person. The only time he had ever swung his fists were at "frat boys when they got too close to his female friends"? come on...

worst thing I've ever read.

the concept of this book is good, but the writing, characters, and overall plot are garbage. it's only saving grace is that the narrator is quite good. do not buy.

On the fence at first.

I was on the fence about this book to start, and honestly if it wasn't for nick podhel I might not have given it more of a chance. The stat sheet read outs are tedious, and better meant for books. But the story is fun, Richter is a fun character to get to know and I'm somehow now on the 4th book in as many weeks. Each book leaves you wanting more. They are also not long or particularly difficult and in depth booms, but engaging enough to listen to for the time, and the world-building through quests and mishaps keeps it interesting. And as a fan of RPGs it's a cool take on the genre.

Smugness Abounds

I got about halfway through this book. I'm clearly in the minority since I only purchased this book based on the number of high reviews. Richter reminds me of a child playing an RPG who rage quits the game because his friends aren't playing fair. The author seems to be transparently showing off his "cleverness" in using the Richter to outsmart NPC type characters.

Imaginitative Book Series

The recording #Audible1 was a amazing and actually felt like I was in the series. The recording group does not just record the narrator but add in sounds to liven up the video game experience. Can feel the characters. So much is going on and shit hits the fan and just so good. Totally recommend this book.

Great book and series!

I stumbled onto what this genre called LitRPG. I’m a big gamer and this great to listen to while at work or commuting. The voice work is great and keeps me well engaged with what going on. I’m now on book 7 and still happy with it all.

Unbelievable series

First review I have ever written, but I wanted to give kudos to the author and narrator. Hard to believe that Dr. Kong was writing this in the evenings while still maintaining a busy physician practice during the day. Despite being self-published, the book was remarkably polished and the creativity and depth of The Land is truly something to behold (the next 6 books are just as good). And Nick Podehl's ability to create specific voices for all of the characters, then maintain those flawlessly throughout the lengthy books is Oscar-worthy.

Feels Like A Real Life Game

It’s a really great book.

It feels like the main character is in a vast world filled with thousands of creatures. This book sort of reminded me of the game “Breath of the Wild” The adventure and action in this book is fantastic.

I know some people hate the lists but it’s pretty fun to know the information of the weapons and the creatures. As I said before it kind of feels like a Zelda game. In addition the part where it says “who are you again?” Always cracks me up.

Not What I Expected, but SO GOOD!!!

When people think of a novel they many times see the normal arc of intro, conflict, climax, and resolution. This book takes that concept and throws it to the wind! It builds upon it self with many different stories, all having there own arcs, all at once. These stories intertwine in a way that feels natural and fluid. Also if you are like me and love to see things grow from humble beginnings to something spectacular than you will absolutely love this book!

Where has this been my whole life!

I cannot believe i have never heard of this genre and book before. The author has such a genuine feel for his story and it's refreshing to see a story without compromises.Anyone who is a fan of games, fantasy, anime or just really good story telling will love this series.

Slow but Capturing

As an experienced gamer with rpgs (taking into consideration it's now real), the mc is supposed to be a master in multiple skills, though skills may have not transferred he should still have the knowledge on how to level up faster, he took it way too fast to decide to get. villagers at such a low level

the narrator made me feel like I was in the story

I quite enjoyed the first book of the series. It was a very interesting book. My favorite moment was probably when Richter stole all the belongings from the Baron.
I quite enjoyed listening the narrator. The narrator did such a good job. I felt like I was in the story, traveling with the characters step-by-step, feeling what they felt.

Stellar Narration! Style tailored to Gamers

I'm a gamer. I drove from Oregon to New Jersey in a week... and driving 10 hours a day was boring! I listened to 3 books, a ton of NPR and I was looking for something different. I missed my games!

I already listened to another litrpg, the GOD AWFUL, "Tamer: King of Dinosaurs" and needed to try something proven... not what was clearly a grown man's pathetic teenage sex fantasy.

I was not disappointed by this book.

Hear me out. If you're a gamer you'll know what I'm talking about: Sometimes when you're playing games more than living a normal life, gaming elements start to incorporate into your dreams. You'll have a top-down view, a HUD, or an inventory in your dreams. Sometimes you'll loot something like a tree stump in the middle of nightmare, and when you wake up... you kind of wish you were still dreaming. When games mix into your dreams, you get the best out of both the real world and the virtual world!

That's what makes LitRPG so cool!

The main character gets sucked into a world governed by game mechanics, and rather than (more realistically) lament losing everything he's ever known or loved... he just sort of rolls with it! Haha! "Hmmm that was wierd. Ooh there's a person with a quest notification over her head... guess I better check it out!" Weeks later he's made friends, started a village, and only occasionally has he reminisced about his old Earth life... not ONCE does he ask, how did I get here and how the fuck do I get out? He's pretty much in heaven.

It does get a little exhausting listening to each and every stat block listed out... or all the loot descriptions... but like I said, the narrator is stellar. Occasionally I wondered if they got a different actor for certain characters... but no, he's just that versatile.

This is not Game of Thrones. This is not Harry Potter... This is like... maybe an manga novella?? I've never read one of those sooooo yeah. This is light reading to say the least. Young Adult for sure... but fun enough for this 37 y.o. gamer ;)

A great performance, and a great story

I’ll start with the story, it was great.
Well it became great. The beginning was rough. Like, I want to punch the main character in the face rough. He just came off as trying so hard to be funny and make light of his situation. But this changed quickly. He really grows on you as time goes on and he grows up considerably. The rest of the characters are quite likeable and the story and quest lines feel really grand. I throughly loved the world of “The Land” and will definitely be buying the rest of the series
Performance- I have no issues.
The narrator does a fantastic job. The individual voices were great to here and really added to the character depth. I really enjoyed the Mama characters voice.
