    Description

    Jason logs into Awaken Online fed-up with reality. He's in desperate need of an escape, and this game is his ticket to finally feeling the type of power and freedom that are so sorely lacking in his real life.

    Awaken Online is a brand new virtual reality game that just hit the market, promising an unprecedented level of immersion. Yet Jason quickly finds himself pushed down a path he didn't expect. In this game, he isn't the hero. There are no damsels to save. There are no bad guys to vanquish.

    In fact, he might just be the villain.

    One of the best LitRPG series available

    One of the best LitRPG series available. So many are trash. This author understands the balance needed between geek and good writing. Have loved all the books in this series.

    Awful

    Unless you are an angsty 12 year old who can literally not imagine anyone else as an actual person... Stay away.

    This book is tragically bad. It's a self absorbed teenager who's constantly whining about the laughably cartoonist world he lives in. They call him welfare because his environmentalist lawyer parents got him a scholarship??? He ain't even poor. He goes on to live in his aunt's spare room and laments to himself how it only has a bed. Oh. The humanity. A room and bed. How very "spartan".

    Moving into the game world, he has constantly overpowered abilities granted to him and keeps acting like he's overcoming some challenge and his "tactics" are the only thing getting him by. Okay buddy. Nevermind that you constantly one shot things way over your level and you can command a huge army of soldiers stronger than regular PCs. Also. Why tf are all the player characters so underhwelming? They mention that some of the strength comes from emotion. Ok. Cool. Everyone but you is a cardboard cutout. Alright. Jason is the most bland uninspired character of them all. I was honestly rooting for his rival. They also introduced the cliche love interest who can do nothing but simp for our dear great poor wounded main character.

    Christ please someone message me and tell me what this book has to offer. Bad bland characters predictable plot unrealistic world, boring story of self indulgence. Nothing about this is good?? Im just confused at the rating.

    Almost certainly written by a computer

    The writing is like bad teen fiction, the protagonist lives the dream life of every bullied kid. He shows everyone how strong and independent he is, including his parents, He leaves school and makes his living playing the titular game, seemingly able to play it in ways unfathomable to even the creators.

    In addition, the flow of the writing is off, it randomly switches from using contractions to not using them, the player is the master of making plans that he, in his own opinion, has no chance of succeeding at, but miraculously is victorious, time and time again.

    Greatly surprised and impressed

    As an avid MMO player I have tried to read other books of this type (entering the virtual world if a game) but they have for the most part seemed very one dimensional. THIS is an in depth emersive world that I could see existing in, with all the action of battle and faction intrigue, down to the intricacies of finding the right crafting mats. This is a great book series that any MMO player will enjoy. Come, join the Kin!

    Gravely entertaining!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Awaken Online: Catharsis to be better than the print version?

    Hard to say. For me personally, I may have enjoyed this book more in print. Regardless, it is a very good read if you can deal with some minor eyerolling moments.

    What other book might you compare Awaken Online: Catharsis to and why?

    Probably "Ready Player One" though that is only for the mmo theme. Otherwise, Im not too sure.

    What does David Stifel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Stifel was perhaps not the best choice. He does do a great job at building a good atmosphere, but falls short on some deliveries and tone of certain characters. He is just a tad too robotic and doesn't really fit with the book, in my opinion. When it comes to the cities, describing events, coming through with a building atmosphere or the clashing of titans, he nails it. When it comes to dialogue though... eh. It can be a tad underwhelming or just plain jarring. His voice just seems out of place and the voices aren't too varied. Still he did do a pretty good job and it wasn't enough of a mismatch to make me overlook the good things he did.

    Any additional comments?

    Overall, I really enjoyed this book, recommend giving it a read or listen even. It has hiccups without a doubt, some enough to make me roll my eyes or frown a bit.

    The story itself is very enjoyable, but there are issues. Realistically, I think the Mr. Bagwell did wonderfully on capturing that general teen guy frustration, but at the same time after going through my own phase like this just made me groan. It did seem to be over the top at times.The hatred for the rich and just people that treated him badly was too edgy for me. Don't get me wrong it wasn't too much of an issue, just a small gripe. This bigger issue was that you hear a lot of repeating phrases and descriptions. Normally not something that bothers me, but here it did. Could just be personal bias after listening / reading a different book that had a larger range, but still.

    Okay okay, so I whined about the bad. What was good, right? The author is damn good at describing battles, fights, horrors of beast and demon. These monstrosities that linger and tear out of nightmare. The times and convos when the main isn't being your average angsty teen are well-done and usually funny. He captures being an awkward boy in a place he doesnt feel he belongs like a champ. The parts with magic on average, while the casting is about what you'd expect, the description of how they act is pretty good. There are some magics though that made me sit up a little straighter and give the book/computer a respectful nod. Mr. Bagwell is also pretty good at the whole "Hey this guy is getting torn apart. It's not pretty and not everyone can watch it." Killing while plentiful in the book is never really completely normalized. There are parts where spectators or people have to leave cause they cant watch. There are part in some fights or battles where the battle isn't one side of unwavering freight trains versus the solid rock cliff of never crumbling foes! No. People run. People get scared. People leave and are never seen again. The frustration and fear is sometimes palpable.

    Mr. Stifel just wasn't the right fit here, for me. I enjoyed his voice, but it was out of place. Went into enough about my issues with that already.

    TL;DR - Pretty simple, the book overall is worth your time. I personally don't agree with the choice in reader, but the performance wasn't bad. In some places it was damn fine. The book has issues, if you hate or can't deal with a taste of highschoolesque angst and drama here and there, I'd recommend not listening. It is few and far in between though, keep that in mind. The fantasy and dark magic side is very good to the point of making this book almost amazing.

    This is more of a YA novel than reviews indicate

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book. its clearly part of the emerging genre of "LitRPG" - and reads like playing an MMO video game. And just like such games, the characters are stock and predictable: outsider, loner high school kid; rich jerk; decent girl caught in the middle. But it was still a fun ride.

    How is this rated so high?

    Because it makes perfect sense for a lvl 1 character to one shot lvl 70s, multiple time. That same lvl 50 character then summon multiple lvl 150 minions and take over a whole city. If that's how the system is set up, sure, but not really because only MC can do it and NO ONE else can, including beta testers... At this point please don't call it litrpg, call it wish "fulfillment isekai: I was trapped in an idiot world". How this is rated so high is beyond me.

    Wow

    I really enjoyed the main character, he is not unlike many teenage men. I had put off this series for awhile due to some of the reviews focusing on it being dark. Honestly it's more a shade of grey that has good and evil elements.

    Reader is dull unfortunately

    I loved the book. I am a huge fan of Ready Player One and this is very reminiscent of that - minus the 80's nostalgia. The reader was just terrible tho. Fortunately he wasn't bad enough to return the book, but had the story even been four stars I would have returned it. Sometimes I caught myself criticizing the reader more than listening to the actual story. Considered getting the book, but I listen to books on my commute and don't have a ton of other time to read, and I loved the story.

    Sehr Angenehme Umsetzung des Isekai-Genres

    Ich habe angefangen das Hörbuch zu hören, weil eine Freundin meinte, es wäre "wie Sword Art Online, aber ohne die riesigen Plotlöcher". Der Ähnlichkeit kann ich zustimmen und die dünneren Stellen im Handlungsgewebe sind deutlich rarer gesät und weniger vordergründig. Abgesehen von der weiblichen Hauptfigur der Serie (vermute ich), die hier noch relativ kurz kommt, erlebt man zwei männliche Hauptcharaktere, die beide irgendwie … Antagonisten, aber dennoch ein Stück weit nachempfindbar sind. Die stückweise Veränderung der Stimme gelingt im Spiel gut, bricht aber in der Außenwelt teilweise völlig unverständlich aus dem Muster, daher nur vier Sterne. Dennoch insgesamt guten Gewissens fünf Sterne und eine unbedingte Empfehlung für Liebhaber des Genres.

    A differemt approach to a good idea

    I like the approach, but I think some important questions that come to ones mind are simply ignore here.

    10/10

    Constantly interesting. Great characters and plot. Fantastic game world and mechanics.

    I don't have a single thing to criticize.

    A MUST read, for fantasy, sword&magic and litRPG fans.

    Mal was Anderes

    Interessant, unterhaltsam, ich habe mich gut unterhalten gefühlt. Wie doch die Rollen vertauscht werden können. Der vermeintlich Böse ist der Gute, der vermeintlich Gute der Böse... Nett
