Gold Standard of LITRPG

I've now listened to a number of LITRPG series that I truly like and have given 5 stars across the board to - The System Apocolypse by Tao Wong, Alpha World by Daniel Schinhofen, Ascend Online by Luke Chmilenko, and The Gam3 by Cosimo Yap - but, to me so far, gold standard is The Land. The completeness of integrating an RPG game with "real life" has been readily managed by the author, Aleron Kong.

Now, combine that with the talents of Nick Podehl, and you truly have an epic on your hands. He brings to life all of the characters in such a clever manner that I find it hard NOT to laugh at times, thanks to his way of expressing what is actually happening. Congrats to Aleron for injecting common day events and sayings into the script, so that Nick can expertly interpret them in voice.

As a gamer, and a listener of these books, there were many times I'd think, "This is what he's got to do now!" as we've found ourselves gaming with these events happening to our avatars. Usually, these are basic moves ... or, what we consider to be the most "logical" moves, as we've probably repeated them over and over and over ... again. Aleron Kong goes beyond the rote "next move" and weaves an intricate, yet refreshingly correct, path for our hero. One that I've consistently found interesting. The moves are correct, because our "hero" is flawed and doesn't always "go with the flow".

It's unique. It's gripping. And, it's just thoroughly enjoyable.

This entire series is an absolute MUST read!!

The Land series is hand's down one of the best, most entertaining series I have ever read (or listened to) in my almost 40 years of reading for pleasure. I have read countless series over the years and have many that make my short-list of favorites. The Land is one of the most brilliantly written, entertaining, enjoyable series I have ever had the pleasure to read. Along with serious and suspenseful moments where you just know your favorite character has no chance to make it out of the mess he's in, there are countless laugh out loud moments. And for those listening on Audible, Nick Podehl brings Aleron's characters to life in a way you will never appreciate until you listen. Before The Land, there were only 2 series that I enjoyed reading a second time. The Land brings that total to 3!

This is anything BUT "just another" LitRPG series. Whether you are a fan of epic fantasy, D&D, LItRPG, suspense, etc., or just a fan of pure entertainment, you have got to give this series a try. The first book starts off fast and furious, and Aleron has maintained that pace through the entire series. Read this series and you will find out why Aleron earned the title of Father of American LitRPG!

If you have tried other LitRPG series and found them lacking, try this one to see how it is really supposed to be done.

The BEST Audible Series Available!

You can stop reading reviews! Go listen to "The Land" now! I've listened to all 7 of the books "The Land" series has to offer at the time this review was written. That's 120 hours and 25 minutes of Nick Podehl narrating the words of Aleron Kong! Over 5 days straight of listening time and I want more! I never want it to end!

I am not an RPG guy. I've never before played an RPG board game. Don't let the RPG title deter you. Anyone will love this book because of the rich story telling, incredible characters, the world that Aleron Kong creates, and the masterful story telling! The incredible thing about these books is you start at square one with the main character, our hero Richter, and go on this grand adventure with him; growing and learning with him. Throughout the progression of these books it's impossible not to fall in love with the characters as you watch the world unfold around you. Aleron Kong's writing is relatable, funny, and emotional while being so descriptive that you will watch the world be painted before you. I'm always surprised by his hilarious use of crass and current humor intertwined with such a high level of writing.

The only thing better than Kong's story is Podehl's narration. I'm a television producer with a degree in theater, film, and television and I can honestly say Nick Podehl is a master storyteller. He should win all the awards! His narration is enthralling from start to finish. His characters are out of this world amazing! It never seems like someone doing voices, it just sounds like I'm listening to a myriad of different characters - like watching an animated series. Every character's voice is not only unique and perfectly suited for them, but even his speech patterns and intonations differ from character to character. Jim Henson himself would be impressed. And this is the very first audible book I've heard narrated by a male that can successfully do female characters just as well. I can listen for hours and continue being impressed every minute.

My one issue with the audible version of this book is that certain charts and figures can be daunting when listened to aloud, but sometimes you just have to let it wash past you as it's not imperative to the story. I would recommend this book 1 million percent. It is so worth listening to the audible version for Podehl's narration. Just be warned! Once you start you won't be able to stop.

Now where's the RPG Game! So vivid!

This has great character building. My son heard it while I was listening to it while I baking in the kitchen. He would hear the dings and come to tell me to find my phone....Then he realized it was part of the book. After he listed with me for awhile, he said it made him want to play the RPG game (if there was one). Throughout the book mention would be made of something that would remind me of other fantasy novels or games (mithril for instance). Like little bits and pieces were taken and put together into something new.
I play Lord of the Ring Online myself and I really enjoyed the references to leveling up and deciding where to put your points for skills, etc. But this was so entertaining. I have always enjoyed Nick Podehl as a narrator and he was an excellent choice for this series. People who don't play role playing games may not enjoy it as much as those who do, but it is still a fun, entertaining read. And maybe those who don't play RPG's might get a little enlightenment.

I’m HOOKED!

I listened to all seven books in The Land series in about 2-3 months via Kindle. That’s how much I loved the series! I haven’t been this invested in a book series since Harry Potter! As a Tabletop gamer, reading the series was such amazing self care for me! And have such a diverse and unique expanse of characters has me HOOKED! I’m sooo excited for the next book in the series!

loved the sound effects that came with leveling up or acquiring items. The author does a good job of making choices that a real person would make while playing a game making it more believable as well.

Amazing series through book 7!!

Amazing series through book 7!! Bringing together all of the elements of fantasy, adventure, RPG, and pop-culture references that keep it fresh. This series has great staying power, and after my third iteration I'm still finding new kernels of storylines and references. As always, Nick Podehl brings this story to life like few others can.

This RPG is LIT!

Would you listen to The Land: Founding: A LitRPG Saga again? Why?

Recently, I've been buying up pretty much every LitRPG I could get my grubby hands on. Sad to say, not every narrator is up to the task (I'm assuming struggling independant authors got a good deal in order to just get their work out there). This book, however? Not even in the same league! Nick Podehl is by far one of the greatest male narrators in the game right now, and securing him for this series only makes a great thing AMAZING.

The story starts simply, but gets deeper with every chapter, drawing you deeper into the world. Characters develop before your eyes, and plots unfold to lay bare even more complex mechinations. The main character is certainly on his way to becoming a bad-ass, but doesn't start out in god-mode, and he doesn't always make the right decision, but he LEARNS from his mistakes, and his attitude and decisions grow and reflect those experiences.

I'll be honest, I shamelessly listened to this book straight through in a single day. I bought the next book before I was even halfway through the first and had it downlowded and qued up so I could keep going even after this book was finished. I've read and listened to all the major LitRPG series out at the time I write this, and I can tell you with absolute surity that THIS series is already by far my favorite. This is the kind of series that others will hold up as the standard for the genre, and seek to emulate. I look forward to the rest of the series with true and unadulterated escitement! (^_^)

What other book might you compare The Land: Founding: A LitRPG Saga to and why?

None. THIS is the book other works should be comparing themselves against.

Have you listened to any of Nick Podehl’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, he does an amazing job in this book!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, absolutely. My chest swelled with the emotions of the main character at several points, when the character himself was overwhelmed with emotion.

grade noch aushaltbar

Ich habe etwa 1/3 ausgehalten, dann musste ich aufhören.

Wie das hier ein Beispiel für gute LitRPG sein soll verstehe ich nicht. Viele LitRPG Bücher starten mit einem "Looser" als Hauptcharakter der sich nach und nach entwickelt. Dabei wächst dieser normalerweise nicht nur äußerlich, sondern auch charakterlich wie das Überwinden eigener Schwächen und Fehler oder Traumata.

Der Hauptcharakter hier startet als "cooler Macho" und ich wollte ihm bereits nach weniger als einer Stunde hören eine Tracht Prügel verpassen um ihm ein wenig zu­recht­stut­zen. Nicht das dies wirklich helfen würde, es wäre aber sehr befriedigend.

Wer in Büchern Tiefgang und Charakterentwicklung für ein Muss hält, die eher stereotypische amerikanische Mentalität, was cool ist, nicht mag und wem der Wechsle von teils sehr verwirrenden Erzählperspektiven gegen den Strich geht, der sollte die Finger von dem Buch lassen.

klassisches LitRPG, flach aber unterhaltsam

Mann gelangt in "echte MMOSpielwelt" ohne Möglichkeit zurück und zeigt der Welt, ein neuer Held ist erschienen...
Ein Leben mit einer unterstützenden 'Fortschrittsmechanik', die dein Leben in Zahlen darstellt, und sogar mit Erklärungstext, was sie zu bedeuten haben und wie man in den Bereichen besser wird, ... Bye bye Unsicherheit - willkommen beim Leveln!
Im Gegensatz zu den anderen LitRPGs "Dungeon Lord" oder "Life Reset", wird hier der Übergang von der Realen Welt möglichst rasch und beinahe uninteressiert abgehandelt (vage Erklärung warum, plopp, hier noch eine Einschulung, willkommen im Zauberland) und der Hauptcharakter akzeptiert alles anstandslos ohne Gedanken an Familie&Co.
Was mich zu meinem größten Kritikpunkt bringt:
Alles ist flach ohne Tiefe, der Held ist da, ist unsterblich und kann alles besser, alle sprechen ihn mit Lord an,...
Trotzdem gebührt dem Autor ein ehrerbietiges Danke für die Erschaffung dieses Genres, was durch seine Millenial-Witze und Anspielungen bzw Zitaten aus Filmen einen unterhaltsamen Abend garantieren.

Didn't like the narration

Maybe simply reading it would have been better. The audio narration over emphasis to many things. It sometimes felt like someone tries to make it dramatic when a sack of rice falls over just by over pronouncing it.

The audio acknowledgements for level ups and stuff is somewhat fun. My wife and I had a good laugh while listening: "Love, shall we continue listening to the Ding! Book?"

Reading out loud All of the stats and skill stuff everytime in endless completion, was very dull.

It has some great moments and a few fun ones. The world building is good. But due to being hyped a lot, my expectations very somewhat higher.

Toller Sprecher, schlechter Autor

The Land: Founding ist, wie man im Titel sieht, ein litRPG. Also ein erzähltes Online-Rollenspiel. Mitsamt Stufenanstieg, Werten, Quests, Loot, etc.
Das Positive vorweg:
* Der Erzähler ist großartig. Ihm zuzuhören macht Spaß. Die unterschiedlichen Charaktere spricht er alle so, dass man sie problemlos auseinanderhalten kann. Manche Nebencharaktere spricht er sehr schön mit Südstaatenakzent. Das finde ich witzig und es lockert das Ganze nochmal etwas auf. Außerdem passt er seine Sprechgeschwindigkeit an die Situation an und erzählt nicht alles in demselben Tonfall.
* Insgesamt ist die Sound-Qualität sehr hoch. Es gibt regelmäßig Soundeffekte, z.B. beim Stufenansteig.
* Das World-Building ist okay. Die Geschichte ist nicht uninteressant und es macht Spaß, mitzubekommen, wie der Hauptcharakter immer besser wird.

Das Negative:
* Die Charaktere sind alle total flach. Sie haben kaum Charaktereigenschaften, geschweige denn interessante innere Widersprüche oder Konflikte.
* Regelmäßig wird der Charakterbogen des Protagonisten oder anderer Figuren vorgelesen. Komplett. Das zieht sich bisweilen ganz schön hin und hat mich mehrfach gelangweilt. Ich habe dann meistens vorgespult oder nicht mehr zugehört.
* Der Autor scheint ein Problem mit Frauen zu haben. Es gibt drei Arten von Frauen, die erwähnt werden: Mutter-Figuren, Schönheiten und blöde Ex-Freundinnen. Der Reihe nach: Die weise, liebevolle, aber leicht reizbare Mutter-Figur ist ein langweiliges Klischee. Sie tritt hier gleich zwei Mal auf.
Die Schönheiten: Wenn sich der Protagonist für eine Frau interessiert, dann nicht, weil sie einen interessanten Charakter hat, sondern ausschließlich, weil sie atemberaubend schön ist. Das ist wirklich alles, was den Protagonist (und den Autor) zu interessieren scheint.
Die Ex-Freundinnen. Wenn diese erwähnt werden, bekommt das Buch sogar leicht misogyne Züge.

Fazit: Toller Sprecher, Geschichte okay, Charaktere charakterlos. Es tut nicht weh, das Hörbuch zu hören, es ist nicht furchtbar schlecht, aber ich bin nicht interessiert genug, um mir den nächsten Teil zuzulegen.

Alles was ich erwartete

Wenn sich jemand als „Father of american LitRPG“ betitelt schraubt man seine Erwartungen schon mal hoch. Und glücklicherweise würde ich nicht enttäuscht.

Harmonische Welt mit RPG und Strategie Elementen und einer guten Balance des Protagonisten machen es ein Vergnügen der Geschichte zu folgen und ein Nachvollziehbarer Realismus führt zu überraschend wenigen Cringe-Momenten, trotz des Genres. Im Vergleich mit asiatischen Counterparts kann die Geschichte sich sehen lassen und ist um einiges besser, als einiger uneditierter Ramsch, den man sonst so findet!
Einziges Makel am Hörbuch sind wohl die Character-Sheets die man sich jedesmal in voller Länge anhören darf.. (Als ob wir die jemals mehr als nur überflogen hätten^^)
Der Sprecher ist ziemlich gut! Man bleibt im Flow und er trägt einen gut durch Konversationen und Spannungsmomente.
Alles in allem: Bin froh, dass es noch nicht zu Ende ist...

Do not buy

This book has a slow pace but then next one is so much worse. Really nothing interesting happened
