Publisher's Summary

The decision to start a new life is never an easy one, but for Joe the transition was far from figurative. Becoming a permanent addition to a game world, it doesn't take long to learn that people with his abilities are actively hunted. In fact, if the wrong people gained knowledge of what he was capable of, assassins would appear in droves. 

In his pursuit of power, Joe fights alongside his team, completes quests, and delves into the mysteries of his class, which he quickly discovers can be practiced only in secret. Ultimately, his goal is to complete every mission, master every ability, and learn all of the world's secrets. All he has to do is survive long enough to make that happen.

Good Start to a series, but..

I really have enjoyed the world building and such, however the MC's party drives me crazy, a whiny tank and a party leader that would of made me walk long ago (perhaps even ghosted altogether). Stopping mid battle to have a conversation check, zero spatial and or tactical awareness check, shrill annoying voice: check; taking unnecessary risks due to poor planning check, not actually checking that the party is on the same page, and referring a wiki to explain world mechanics that the reader is left ignorant of... perhaps this is just me wanting something vaguely rpg like, perhaps i would of responded better i could listen to the party leaders voice actor and no want to grind my teeth, perhaps it would of been better if the MC was not entirely ignorant of basic game mechanics in general (not just mmorpg, but gaming basics) so he would be able to leave this dumpster fire of a party alone and get on with the point of the story

Amazing Litrpg book

I loved it. The first few chapters were a little slow, but it picked up and never stopped. The narrator wasn't my favorite, but it was still easy to listen too. Great story, characters, and left me wanting more.

Book 2 Please

I want it now. I've listened to a lot of mmorpg or litrpg audiobooks and this one is at the top of my list.

No sound /volume leveling

Good story. Narrator is great with character voices but the continual whispering, then yelling, then normal voice repeating cycle is impossible amd uncomforable to listen to in most situations I can think of. As another reviewer said - if he held out for more money, I'm hoping they were smart enough to save their listensers screaming headaches by using sound leveling. M ay not finish this one and if the next one is the same then, big nope.

Light fun LitRPG

This was a really fun light LitRPG listen.
There are lots of stats, but I was able to follow the story great without worrying too much about them. And they did impact the story in a way that was fun. 
The main character had a good reason to enter a game world permanently. I would have seriously considered doing the same thing had I been in his position. 
I've only listened to book 1, but it did motivate to pick up the next few books when they were on sale based on book 1.

An enjoyable start to the series

Subtle humour with chances of slapstick, reasonably complex plot but not too complicated for younger audiences
