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

Amazing!

A wonderful start to a series that I have no doubt will be great. The level up sounds are an acquired taste, but fit given the genre. I am now fully in love with the LITRPG genre after listening to this book. It fuses my love of Fantasy and Video games perfectly. It also makes me want to log onto my PC and embark on another ESO quest.

The narrator was amazing with the different characters, and.the writer is clearly skilled at story telling. I've already procured book 2, and will be starting it immediately.

Also, as a side note, for those who are put off by the level up noises, the best I can tell you is that I was too at first, but they decrease in frequency and become tolerable as an acquired taste.

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.

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, 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.

annoying

It's fun but I don't care for the stat readout every time the protagonist levels up it hinders the story and I couldn't finish it.

For The Mist!

If your looking for adventure and some laughs,this book is the one for you. It introduce a lot of progression among world as well as characters.. There quest that link to other quest just like proper video game fashion. Personality are pretty spot on, Nick Podel did and awesome Job delivering the characters in Audible. Speak of which main character make alot of references which is refreshing. Give it a chance like i did. I'am Sure you'll become a fan.

Best book series in the world

This is an incredible story that is performed by the smoothest voice. You truly get enveloped into the lives of the characters and the plot.
Your mind will try to figure out what is going to happen next and it is the complete opposite.
Beautifully written and performed. Love it.
Ready for book 8.

great first book

I really enjoyed the book and am glad there are six more (as of now) for me to go through.

my only complaint is that the authors EXTENSIVE explanation of gear, leveling, etc. I find myself skipping those.

Worth every star given.

I finished this book in less than 2 working days. I honestly couldn't take my headphones out to stop listening. You are captured from the very first word and left wanting more on the last. I can't wait to listen to the rest of this series and hope they get even better from here.

Less Story More Interruptions

This was my first audio book in the LitRPG genre. I don't know if it's just this book, or the genre, that didn't quite work for me. The story was good, but character development was ordinary at best. But that's not the biggest problem. The main issue is the constant and very very long status updates that break up the narration/progress of story. The protagonist goes about his tasks, accomplishes something, and the narration gets interrupted by something like "Congratulations. You have accomplished X task. You have earned X points and X rewards and your status is now X and your strength is now X and your health is now X and you have achieved level X in X skills..." Such updates happen too frequently and go on for far too long. If this were a print book I could skip it, but in audio book format you don't even have that option. This completely fractured the listening experience for me. As for the character development: one book into the series, I am not emotionally invested in the protagonist's story enough to buy book 2. Sorry, but pass.
