Publisher's Summary

Eddie Hunter is about at the end of his rope, so when he stumbles across an ad looking for people to farm in Long Term Immersion in the game Light Online, he can't believe his luck. Once hired he enters the game as soon as he can. Unbeknownst to him, though, the person that hired him is also doing illicit research on the pods that he and the other farmers are using.

The research is rapidly discovered by the AIs that monitor the game and shut down, forcefully, by the company that runs Light Online. But the code that runs those pods has been altered, and until it's fixed Eddie and the others can't log out. Although the devs assure him that it won't take long to fix, Eddie's not so sure of that himself.

Eddie entered the game to make money in real life, and as he tries to do that he finds himself getting entangled deeper and deeper in the game and with the people he meets there. But when he discovers a side of the game that the previous players had apparently never even considered, he knows he has to find a way to stay in the game.

if you like World building then this is for you

if you like World building then this is for you it's a great series that shows great potential in showing both the some of the dishonesty that can happen and trying to get people to farm If You're Expecting intrigued military and Criminal organizations you got that the one thing I would have to say that tent on media has made a misstep in but they have decided that the next book will be coming out in December this is something that should be coming out in mid June this is a serious that you just want to read the first book and then go dive into the next book within the next 2 to 3 months and that way it isn't lost and you're not forgetting anything because there are such subtleties to this book that by putting it out in December and it's most likely that you will lose some readers because of it and people may even forget about the series

Of Bunnies and Inns

Tom Larcombe wrote a fun, quick paced story and Derek Shoales did a great job narrating the tail. A great LitRPG world was created in the Light On Line game. The nuances and interplays are intriguing without bogging down the story. I highly recommend this book. Only one criticism, the second and following books are not out yet.

Decent Story Narrator Wasn't Bad But Not Good

This was a decent story. It primarily focuses on world building. But, there are quests and adventuring woven in. The story was structured well. But the writing and the dialogue that fleshes out the story structure is a bit weak.

It's not a bad book. It's just not a good book.

It's not a bad listen. And, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a low key story to listen too.

Be prepared for a weak narrator. He's not bad, just limited.

Pretty good listen . Overall the story, characters and world building was good. I didn’t really like the ending but I would still recommend this book.
