Description

Sometimes life is a game. 

There's nothing out-of-the-ordinary about James Callahan. He's just your average, everyday college student. But when James finds a mysterious scroll on the desk of one of his professors, his life quickly becomes anything but ordinary. 

After a series of strange events, James learns that he's the only one who can defeat Carter Livingston, a powerful gang leader responsible for robbing banks all over the city. With the help of a few beautiful women he befriends, James sets out to put an end to Carter's reign of terror once and for all. 

But does he have what it takes to defeat Carter and his gang?

Infantile, with terrible narration.

DNF. This book reads like something written by a 14 year old who found their parent's porn collection. Shallow characters, repetitious descriptions (e.g. every woman the MC met was "smokin' hot" (sometimes multiple times within a few paragraphs)). Ugh. It's possible that the plot would resolve somehow if I had stuck it through to the end, but 3 hours in it still seemed deliberately designed to convince us not to care -- we're basically told that none of what's happening is real.

And just to make it just that tiniest bit more excruciating, the narrator sounds like the stereotypical "dirty old man". His voice is so far from what you would expect for a young, college student that I can't understand how he was chosen. He also seems to be completely unable to capture any nuances in the female voices. Frequently, one of the female leads would say something and then the narration would conclude with "... she said in a sexy voice", and I would burst out laughing.

Good example of gameLit. A fun listen.

Overall, this is a very fun listen. A little predictable, but the narration is good. I especially appreciate that the game stats don’t intrude on the narrative. They only come up now and then and only take a few seconds.
