I took a rare blind leap on this one...

If you’re like me, you’re a big fan of the GameLit genre, but you’re regularly disappointed by how often extremely subpar audiobooks are given unreasonably high ratings.

For me this means that I am very careful when spending my credits on LitRPG titles. I read through (and mostly ignore) all the 5 star reviews and try to discern from the negative reviews whether the book deserves its inevitable 4.x overall rating.

Even then I have to make sure I don’t end up accidentally getting ear-violated by a 13-year-old’s, inane, pornographic fantasy loosely dressed in GameLit clothing (coughs, Schinhofen)...

Which is why it’s so rare that I’d take a chance on an unknown author whose kindle book hasn’t even been reviewed on amazon yet. But I was in a gambling mood, and the audio clip convinced me to give it a chance.

I will fully admit that my 5 star rating is probably artificially inflated by how surprised I was to hear a well-written and professionally narrated audiobook.

This book is not on the level of The Land or Videogame Plotline Tester, but it is an above average LitRPG audiobook with an MC who both acts his age and also avoids describing every female character as “soooo hot!” It also has a very good “real world” motivation and storyline for the MC to have a stake in the game-world.

In the end, the author could surely find a way to turn this into a series, but it is written as a standalone novel without loose ends and forward looking plot lines. The book is completely self contained. Oddly enough, this may make it less satisfying for those who are used to the minimum 3 volume storylines that are almost ubiquitous in the genre.

That said it’s definitely worth a credit, and if this is the author’s first published book, I’m very much looking forward to seeing how his writing develops in the future.

Great listen

memorable moment was the ending. its was mostly a cliff hanger at the end of each and every chapter. made me keep listening and finish in a day and a half. great story and characters. now I'm going to keep my eye out for more of Adam Sims works.

Part predictable, part unexpected, all great fun!

I've been in a run of decent but not exceptional litRPG stories lately, so this was really a refreshing change. No excessive swearing, no cringey romance. Just a fun adventure that, though largely predictable, did end up surprising me more than once. I wavered between giving it four or five stars, but in the end I just had so much *fun* I have to give it full marks.

As a 1.99 upgrade from kindle, the audio was absolutely worth the price. I loved it. I certainly look forward to seeing what else this author can do. Can't wait for more!

wow, just. wow

This book has everything I look for in a good audible book and I theroly enjoyed every part of it. I won't give away any of it because I would be doing a disservice to the people that haven't had a chance to listen yet. I'll tell you to pay attention to details in the beginning and threw out because the author pulls everything together quit nicely and the ending ripped out my funny bone and tickled me with it untill I couldn't stop laughing. I mean, talk about a twist..... twists, plural, multiple, both funny, unexpected and serious and exactly how to end a book!!. No cliff hangers! I am a truck driver and listen to books on the road to pass time, but when I got the last 3hours of this book, I couldn't stop listening. I listened all the way home and sat down on my couch not even bothering to turn on the lights on the way through the door and was oblivious to the world untill the book was done.

I want to thank the author for writing this book and the amazing job the narrator did! Amazing on all characters 🙌👌

One of the few Lit.RPG worth it.

What can I say.. I've been refunded a bunch of litRPG books before. This is a keeper. There have been a few that I have tried but couldn't even get halfway through, and even a few that I completed and still wanted a refund.

This one isn't any of those, so get it if you like litRPG or are opened minded toward fantasy sci-fi crossovers but on a pc scale.

Sun Tzu could take lessons from this kid.

What a wonderful read. 15 hours flew by. It is not often Sci-Fi can make you laugh, cry and set on the edge of your seat. I am amazed by the gauntlet of emotions this book brought out of me. A young boy of 16 is faced with grown up problems. He is hounded by authorities and faces choices I would never want to face. If you are new to the lit-RPG style of books, let this be your first read. I don't often feel the need to write a review, but I just hope we can keep this author writing. 50 years I have been a fan of SCI-FI, and sometimes you just know that a series is going to be a smash hit. Don't let this one slip by your reading list. I am going to give it a week and listen to it again. There is just so much going on that I know I missed some of it. It is five am, I just finished it in one setting and I am still laughing. When you read this book, you will laugh also. Have fun, I did...!

A solid story, 3's aren't bad.

The author's passion and creativity flare up way more when he's penning for game and action scenes. This led to a really good book with long stretches of me not caring as he finds a spot to bed down irl. A solid 4 litRPG novel and a sad 2 of a homelife drama, averages out to a 3 overall. I get that characters need motivation but having that motivation take you out of the meat and potatoes of the story is jarring and unwelcome.

The narrator annoyed me for the first hour, constant vocal fry grates at my nerves. I muscled through and after that first hour I found myself somewhat impressed. The vocal fry still managed to annoy me in starts and fits but with projecting emotion and differing certain voices he pulled it off very well. Needs work on differentiating female voices though, beyond that solid work!

An averagely good book, which makes it a standout amongst litRPG.

Impressed

I'll definitely be looking for more from this author. While the story adheres tightly to the standard litRPG tropes, the execution was close to perfect.

Good solid book

I’m looking forward to the sequel for this one and in inter to see if it will do as well as this one or be a complete flop. This right now is a great stand alone story. I just hope the author can do as well with the sequel as he did here.
