Description

Barliona: a virtual world jam-packed with monsters, battles - and, predictably, players. Millions of them come to Barliona, looking forward to the things they can't get in real life: elves and magic, dragons and princesses, and unforgettable combat. The game has become so popular that players now choose to spend months online without returning home. In Barliona, anything goes: You can assault fellow players, level up, become a mythical hero, a wizard, or a legendary thief. The only rule that attempted to regulate the game demanded that no player be allowed to feel actual pain. But there's an exception to every rule. For a certain bunch of players, Barliona has become their personal hell. They are criminals sent to Barliona to serve their time. They aren't in it for the dragons' gold or the abundant loot. All they want is to survive the virtual inferno. They face the ultimate survival quest.

A Guilty pleasure

I've been on a Litrpg binge lately, Read all of the Play to Live series, Awaken Online, Otherlife, The Land, and now This series.

I have to say it's probably my least favorite of them, not to say it is bad at all I actually really enjoy the premise of it, however I find many of the mechanics of the world hard to believe in. (I know how that sounds) I also think it's a bit simple minded overall and rarely walks it's own path.

I think this book targets the younger of the litrpg fans to be sure.


But if your like me and completely addicted to this Genre of book give it a listen, it's worth a credit and the voice performance from the reader is really well done.

Great for fans of RPO

if you are someone who enjoys the game here and there or if you are a hard core gamer, you will love this book. One of mytop 5 books is Ready Player One and this is on the same lines.

Great Narrator, Great book

So this book takes place in the fictional future with a very futuristic video game. The world outside of the game, the real world is not very important. So the majority of the book take place in a MMO VR game, and some of things that are different from the typical fantasy is that the adventure takes place in an MMO and these imitations are embraced. So if you are not much of a gamer this book might not be for you.,

The narrator elevates the story, and its very easy to picture what is going on, and you get the extra context of tone and such from the voice of the narrator. The narrator does an amazing job.

I really enjoyed listening to this novel, so would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Fantasy and Gaming (not necessarily videogames). This series looks to be a champion of the genre of LitRPG.

Excellent with just one regret...

Loved this book. Anyone who's played RPG will enjoy and relate to this story. While listening to Survival Quest I mentioned it to my son and bought the Kindle version for him. He devoured it. He started reading it at 10PM and finished the book at 5AM in one reading.

My only regret is that there are currently only two books in the series and the second one will go by way too fast. I thoroughly enjoy reading more installments in this story line.

Amazing!

I love the narrator who makes his characters come alive and envelops them in emotion. I love the way the main character easily gets off course and starts rambling about one thing or another. I love the way the main character solves problems both knowingly and instinctively. I love the direction this story is going.

Love the series 2nd time through

I really like this series. This is what got me to be a lit rpg fan. I was really torn on what to give this book between a 3 and a 4 but the dungeon part was a bit boring. I don’t play wow or games like that so some of the details were just blah. Overall I recommend the series though.

I thoroughly enjoyed it!

---I really enjoyed this book. Overall it was well written, the characters made sense and didn't seem flat or stale. The premise is interesting and gave a lot more solid reason for being stuck in the game than 90% of the other litrpg's that basically follow the mad inventor or life isn't worth living plots that a lot of these books follow. ---The narrator was really good, well articulated and I felt the characters emotions in his voice. While I had and have no real complaints it is also not the best I have ever heard as nothing particularly special stood out to me either. ----Although the explanations tend to be straight info paragraphs, they space it out well and only tell the info when you need it at the time so it doesn't feel like info vomiting. The game play is not to complicated, although most features of rpg games isn't shown in this first book as the setting limits things. ----In general i would highly recommend this book to any who want to get into the litrpg genre, though this comes with a pretense that you have some basic knowledge of rpg games. No need to be too knowledgeable just basic terms like stats, mana, npc etc. While this will be fairly simple to figure out, every once in while you might feel a little lost. I might recommend the wierdest noob if you've don't know anything about rpgs. It is similar to this one but the main character has never played any games so a lot is explained in it. ---If you have listen to litrpg's before or are knowledgeable about games I would recommend Awaken online, it is a fantastic litrpg that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Epic LitRpg

I really loved this series, the narrator has an amazing voice that draws the listener into the story. The book is written in a way that you feel you are a part of it, and develop real feelings for the characters laughing and crying as they do. One of my favorite books.

a new and exciting approach to rpg and fantasy sf

MMO Role Playing fantasy game with a virtual reality scifi background told in a great and gripping story. The excellent narrator adds to this for really good entertainment. This book had me listen attentively throughout and I can't wait to get the next one of the series

Different and Great

This book series was my introduction into the LITRPG genre. And is to this day my favorite book series. The Story and Jonathan Yen’s voice make this a pleasure.

If you already know that you like LitRPG … perhaps

DNFed after 45 %. This was my first LitRPG novel, and since it seems relatively well regarded, I will probably not return to this genre. You must really like RPGs, and more – you must like somebody else telling you in great detail about their game, to enjoy this book. You get all the stats all the time, there is no drink of water that will leave you in suspense about how many points exactly the main character just gained. What you don't get is world-builidng, non-statistical characters, or an interesting story. The writing is serviceable but far from great. The second star is purely for the narration by Jonathan Yen, which was quite good and can make you think you were listening to a better book.
