Description

Welcome to The Land, Audible's 2018 Customer Favorite!

Enter a mesmerizing tale reminiscent of the wonder of Ready Player One and the adventure of Game of Thrones

Book 1 of a 7 Book series that will Amaze and Delight you for weeks! 

Tricked into a world of banished gods, demons, goblins, sprites and magic, Richter must learn to meet the perils of The Land and begin to forge his own kingdom. Actions have consequences across The Land, with powerful creatures and factions now hell-bent on Richter's destruction. 

Can Richter forge allegiances to survive this harsh and unforgiving world or will he fall to the dark denizens of this ancient and unforgiving realm? 

A tale to shake "The Land" itself, measuring 10/10 on the Richter scale, how will Richter's choices shape the future of The Land and all who reside in it? Can he grow his power to meet the deadliest of beings of the land? When choices are often a shade of grey, how will Richter ensure he does not become what he seeks to destroy?

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...

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

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.

Good introduction to the world of lit rpgs

This was my first lit rpg and having been a longtime fan of dog games, both tabletop and electronic, I was pleasantly surprised. The author and narrator were able to accurately capture the nuances of a typical gamer relating to characters in a fantasy world.

Really looking forward to see how this shapes up as a series.

Great Book, Brilliant Narrator

The story has a unique premise for a litrpg novel, setting it apart from other works like Eden's Gate or Sword Art. The author writes the main character Richter with a very cavalier style that is addicting to listen to. The narrator though is what makes me prefer the audiobook to the ebook, his performance is stellar and sound effects are well used.

A bit cringy

The narrator was great, but the story is terrible. It felt like a 46 year old man trying to write a book that had, “hip” dialogue. Maybe it’s just not for me though. I see a lot of people liked the book, but I just don’t get it. I had to turn it off several times, because of the horribly unfunny and dated references.

The BEST Audible Series Available!

You can stop reading reviews! Go listen to "The Land" now! I've listened to all 7 of the books "The Land" series has to offer at the time this review was written. That's 120 hours and 25 minutes of Nick Podehl narrating the words of Aleron Kong! Over 5 days straight of listening time and I want more! I never want it to end!

I am not an RPG guy. I've never before played an RPG board game. Don't let the RPG title deter you. Anyone will love this book because of the rich story telling, incredible characters, the world that Aleron Kong creates, and the masterful story telling! The incredible thing about these books is you start at square one with the main character, our hero Richter, and go on this grand adventure with him; growing and learning with him. Throughout the progression of these books it's impossible not to fall in love with the characters as you watch the world unfold around you. Aleron Kong's writing is relatable, funny, and emotional while being so descriptive that you will watch the world be painted before you. I'm always surprised by his hilarious use of crass and current humor intertwined with such a high level of writing.

The only thing better than Kong's story is Podehl's narration. I'm a television producer with a degree in theater, film, and television and I can honestly say Nick Podehl is a master storyteller. He should win all the awards! His narration is enthralling from start to finish. His characters are out of this world amazing! It never seems like someone doing voices, it just sounds like I'm listening to a myriad of different characters - like watching an animated series. Every character's voice is not only unique and perfectly suited for them, but even his speech patterns and intonations differ from character to character. Jim Henson himself would be impressed. And this is the very first audible book I've heard narrated by a male that can successfully do female characters just as well. I can listen for hours and continue being impressed every minute.

My one issue with the audible version of this book is that certain charts and figures can be daunting when listened to aloud, but sometimes you just have to let it wash past you as it's not imperative to the story. I would recommend this book 1 million percent. It is so worth listening to the audible version for Podehl's narration. Just be warned! Once you start you won't be able to stop.

Gold Standard of LITRPG

I've now listened to a number of LITRPG series that I truly like and have given 5 stars across the board to - The System Apocolypse by Tao Wong, Alpha World by Daniel Schinhofen, Ascend Online by Luke Chmilenko, and The Gam3 by Cosimo Yap - but, to me so far, gold standard is The Land. The completeness of integrating an RPG game with "real life" has been readily managed by the author, Aleron Kong.

Now, combine that with the talents of Nick Podehl, and you truly have an epic on your hands. He brings to life all of the characters in such a clever manner that I find it hard NOT to laugh at times, thanks to his way of expressing what is actually happening. Congrats to Aleron for injecting common day events and sayings into the script, so that Nick can expertly interpret them in voice.

As a gamer, and a listener of these books, there were many times I'd think, "This is what he's got to do now!" as we've found ourselves gaming with these events happening to our avatars. Usually, these are basic moves ... or, what we consider to be the most "logical" moves, as we've probably repeated them over and over and over ... again. Aleron Kong goes beyond the rote "next move" and weaves an intricate, yet refreshingly correct, path for our hero. One that I've consistently found interesting. The moves are correct, because our "hero" is flawed and doesn't always "go with the flow".

It's unique. It's gripping. And, it's just thoroughly enjoyable.

Speechless

I was just looking for a new book to listen to while driving. Clicked then bought with in an hour I was like this book seems really stupid and not my style. But decided to keep listening. I only use audible while driving. I’ve been listening at home nonstop and bought all the books instead of waiting for my monthly subscription to use the free token

Amazing first step into LitRPG

Saw this book as an ad on facebook. I'm so glad I decided to get it! I was a little weary at first with the game style mechanics. I was afraid it would distract me or take away from the story. Boy was I wrong! Not only did I get really into the mechanics of it all, I lost myself in the book. I finished the entire book in one sitting! Just couldn't stop. The story is fun and captivating. The characters are well thought out and relatable. And the author does a great job with world building. But the one aspect of this that REALLY grabbed me was the way the narrator, Nick Podehl, brought this story to life. I've had some good narrators and I've had a lot of bad ones. Nick is by far the best! I honestly don't think I can ever read these books myself now because of the great job he did here. TL;DR: amazing first step into series/genre and narrator is the best.
