    Description

    Lee is a quiet and unassuming office worker who leads a life of solitude, comfort, and routine. Day in and day out, he shuts off his brain, keeps his head down, and goes about doing his job and minding his own business. That is, he does until a drunken god shows up randomly one day and whisks him off into another world, demanding that Lee serve as his pawn in a game between the gods. Now, trapped in a completely different world full of danger, magic, and creatures he's never imagined outside of fairy tales and video games, Lee has to figure out how to stay alive long enough to make it back home.

    Soundbooth Theater dives into another instant RPG Gamelit classic in War Aeturnus. With this piece of reverent comedy and philosophy about the role of belief in our modern times, Charles Dean has filled a void in the world of Gamelit by creating a Candide for the genre. Not only will Lee's exploits with his psychotic sidekick, Miller, make listeners laugh and spit out their Mountain Dew, it may even convince them to get off the couch for a little while and explore the world outside of video games and fantasy.

    • Dalton Lynne - Proofing

    Performance Issues

    The voice actor is not consistent between the narrator's voice and the main character's inner thoughts, which throws quite a few portions off balance. Fortunately, I did not find this to be an issue in the sequels, which significantly increased my enjoyment of the series as a whole.

    For Beginners.

    TL;DR It is a decent LitRPG. Chapter 8 and 9 are likely the highlights in my opinion.
    Edit : Second book is much better and is full of interesting character development and an unraveling plot. If you like series, then this wouldn't be bad if you can get through the first book.

    Problem 1: The Main Character - The first hour or so is indeed hard to get through. Lee, the main character, knows nothing. I suppose it is appropriate that someone would be disoriented after being plucked from their life, but it is exaggerated a bit too much for my taste. If you consider that he is an avid gamer, every gamers dream is to be in an actual game at least once, they should at least be able to cope or recognize the signs quicker.

    I suppose the intro is the way it is for the purpose of explaining things to readers who have never touched a game before, but then why would they get this book?

    Problem 2 : Narrator - Jeff Hays is a mastermind in voice acting. I love his voice range and control. My problem lies more with the fact that he mixes up the voices. He has a voice for narrating surroundings and actions and one for the main character. The issue is that when the character thinks or has an inner monologue, Jeff Hays swaps between the narrator voice and the MC voice. This presents the problem of not knowing the context of the information provided; If the character is talking out loud or just thinking.

    It is more difficult to put these words on paper than to actually experience it. If the narration isnt something that you are avid about or are not a nitpicker, this will likely not bother you.

    It is very generic in the sense of being whisked away to a different world, being trapped there, and having to survive or die for real. Nevertheless, after having completed ongoing series like "The Land", "Dungeon Lord", "Life Reset", "Unbound Deathlord", my standards are extremely high and this book is a place holder while I wait for the next book in one of said series. If you like this, check the others, I guarantee you will enjoy them.

    for the love of satire

    good grief satire and parody they are too often abused. satire is supposed to be subtle. parody is supposed to be funny. parody is not repeating the same stupid ignorant bologna for the entire story without Ever Changing. and satire a little bit more under the hood not so blatant and obvious. I think the satire might have been better if the character didn't switch from such a gamer to such a bizarre theologian on such a dime. not to mention that the protagonist seem to be like three or four people all the same time with regards to characters acting a certain way at certain times.

    infuriating characters

    Miller ruins this story for me. His ridiculous OTT zealotry gets grating really fast. It really doesn't help that his voice is modelled after Schwarzenegger, making it all the more irritating.

    Lee is a terrible protagonist and doesn't help matters either. Him continuing to let Miller run his mouth is almost as infuriating. I found myself yelling at my phone like a mad man countless times: 'Shut him up!' 'Say something and stop internal monologuing!' etc

    Finally, the RPG elements are super minor and inconsequential. This is a regular fantasy story that very lightly sprinkles on LitRPG elements - not at all what I'm looking for.

    Missed opportunity.

    Despite having an original and interesting premise, the story drags quite a bit, the MC is not very likable and many of the other characters are simply annoying. I made it about 3/4 of the way through hoping things would improve but finally abandoned it.

    Opinion

    Its got decent lore, and an engaging protagonist, but I personally feel the magic feels flat.

    amazing imagination and theological insight

    War Aeternus takes on the everyman imagination when it comes to how gods work. From the mind of Charles Dean comes a hilarious account of a god looking out for its offspring by taking him from his dull world into a game like world to break his mind free from living like a drone. depending on how religious you are, you may take offence but I spoke with Charles before reading this and I knew that his intent was not to offend. when someone thinks their thoughts are crazy and another friend tells them it's normal.... this is that friend in the form of a book. hilarious. entertaining. and down to earth. very much worth your time. recommended snacks while reading. bacon and blueberry waffles. and beer. lots of beer.

    The Best performed audio book I've heard.

    I have over 300 audible titles and I have to say that the narration and performance of this book is one of the best I've heard. It's a compelling universe with a great story and awesome characters. I can't wait for a sequel.

    Don't recommend this one

    Really struggled to get into the story. The story really never seems to get anywhere fast. It dragged too much and i got quite bored with the story.

    fast forward to an amazing story

    the author does something rather amazing he allows people to make a choice do you want to listen to the character sheet if no fast forward and in doing this he gives the people choice of listening to his amazing story in two ways if you're the hardcore gamer who likes to listen to the character sheets go ahead do so otherwise skip the next chapter something else is by doing this we get to really get into what's like for mpc's show me how some people treat them as second-class Citizens While others treat them as equals and the effect that has on gameplay

    pretty well constructed story.

    Good

    first let me say that i am impressed with the audio. inner monologues are made with a very light hall effect. fantastic editing!

    Good Fantasy / litrpg story with not too much status streens. they are mostly at the end of a chapter and are perfectly skippable.
    The story is centered around religion and faith in an rpg world with skills and magic (not much magic in the first book but some fancy skills with reasonable character development)

    Nicht für jeder mann

    Ein Gutes Buch, wenn man sich darauf einlässt. Für Leute die nix mit Gaming und RPG s zu tun haben nicht zu empfehlen, da wenig Spieltechnik erklärt wird und man sich das meiste denken muss.
    Ansonsten Gut. Ich mag den Leser. Die Story an sich leidet ein wenig unter dem Verhalten des Charakters, der Haupt Plot ist aber Sehr Interessant. Auch hier Brauch es ein gewisses Interesse an Religion und Alternativen Realitäten um das Buch zu mögen.
