ok book. some frustrating elements

the story seems ok but many things about the main character seem outta place. but it might be one of those story's where the 2ed book makes it all better. probley going to try the next book. might just be my personal tastes.

Great premise, but fails to deliver.

Okay, so I typed up a huge rant that was entirely illegible on my phone. I changed my mind before submitting and will leave a brief(er) summary instead.

The setting is fine if a bit shallow. The overall plot is okay. A bit slow and wobbly at times, but okay. The development/pacing was slow for various irrelevant and irratating scenes of little or no value to the story or development. The premise of the story and the ideas behind it did draw me to this book, and regardless of how frustrated I am, I want to know what happens in the rest of the books.

Now about that elephant in the room... The characters, with almost no exceptions, are terrible. They are overwhelmingly inconsistent in maturity, intelligence, and motivation. There is no character development; none.

The main character leo... Is probably the worst out of the bunch. A pro gamer that gets excited about new technology and games == good, but said pro gamer completely flaking on gaming things == infuriating. Main character is overpowered, OHKOs enemies... Freaks out everytime there are enemies. Doesn't bother finding out information about the game that seems kinda critical to success. Whines incessantly, about absolutely everything. And heaven forbid there is a decision to be made, time to agonize in detail about it for several minutes of dialog regardless of the situation or potential time constraints. Oh a major event happened in my life that should be upsetting and draw my focus and maybe some actual agony, nope *squirrel* new topic, clearly said event in merely beneath the notice of the champ time to focus on more important things like me, my problems.

I really wanted to like this and I held out hope for maybe 7 hours, but by that point I couldn't wait for it to end. I do not think this was worth it. It might be another matter entirely if the main character felt... Salvageable. But a decent setting and plot, with poor pacing, plentiful pointless distractions, and terrible characters does not an enjoyable listen make.

Difficult to get through

This book was really hard for me to care about, and I tried. One of my favorite authors listed this as one of his favorite series,, but I just don't see the appeal. In a world where game players are treated like sports stars, Leo Lennox is the best You'll know this because every single person in the book calls him Champ. Everyone. Constantly. To a point it felt like they said it every third word.

Leo is an awesome video gamer, and so is sought out to help playtest and develop the most realistic video game of all time. His time in the game is the best part of the book, but we spend more time with the old champ in the real world. Where all he does is whine that he isn't happy anymore and he needs a change. He was so annoying. "Yeah, like by the time the ten thousandth beautiful chick hits on you you couldn't care less." That's a parahrase. Lenox is constantly sought after, and you have to ask why. He has literally no personality. Plus all the stuff about Jew this and Jew That bothered me. You just have to say or show his manager is jewish. You don't have to make it sound like some neo-guys worst nightmare.

I guess I am disappointed in that I was looking for a more gaming style book. Instead we get a good chunk of the book revolving around his contract negotiations. Oh, and for the longest time I was going back and forth on whether or not he was really in a game or in an alternate reality.

The kicker or me was we finally get to a point where he cn spend time in the game andthe book ends. Not my cuppa.

Story did do great as the narrator! Very impressed by his work.

Not sure how I feel about this one...

Between literally HALF the book being the main character trying to thwart off sexual advance from an elf , and the ending being so abrupt that it isn't even a cliffhanger, just a cessitation of story, three stars is fair.
It was a fun read for a lot of the book. Hopefully the author can correct these flaws in any future installment , because despite its short length and shortcomings, I would enjoy reading more...

Brilliant Narraration

The narrator really rocked this book. MSE already produces super high quality books, but couple them with a good narrarator capable of doing multiple voices, and accents and you have a winner.

I expected something better

I listened to this book for 8 hours and the main character, Leo, only played the game twice. So the story pretty much revolves around this video game champion just wanting something new to play, not him actually playing in the game. If your going to advertise a litrpg then maybe the main story should be about the game.

so good! I'm totally addicted !

so easy to listen to , so much fun .
the narrator was awesome the story was great !
and it hints at something bigger going on without actually giving anything away.
if anything my only complaint was it took so long to get into the game world.
on the other hand both worlds are very compelling.

as expected, I thoroughly enjoyed this awesome book from MSE. i dont know why I put off starting this series for so long, it was a page turner from page 1 to the end. the Narrator did a fantastic job giving personality to each character. overall a great listen I highly recommend this if you are a fan of MSE!

Kind of entertaining

Although the hedge words can be kind of distracting, the story definitely shows promise. Looking forward to the next.

Slow, until satisfying.

This litrpg is very interesting, but its biggest flaw is its beginning and middle. The story takes too much time building the character up. He doesn't enter the game, until after about four long chapters. When he finally enters the game, it only lasts for a couple chapters. Then the story mostly focused on business and world building. Readers who want action will probably not enjoy this book. But it does get better when he enters the game and meets new characters on a quest. It is funny, nail-biting, and very immersive. Michael is still the best author, although he does get carried away with his build-ups, which isn't that bad.
