    Description

    This isn't a game. This is his new life.

    Dave has been wandering through life for a long time. His day job bores him and he never seems to be able to meet his family's expectations. The only escape he's ever had is his love of MMORPGs.

    But when he becomes the subject of a test without even knowing it, he's portaled into a game-world called Eloria with no way out. It's a frequent daydream of his, however, in none of those dreams did his wife and daughter ever accompany him.

    Now, Dave must balance protecting his family with exploring his dream...oh, and trying to stay alive. Monstrous beasts roam Elaria, worst of all, an undead army led by the vile Death Knight.

    He'll have to adapt fast and learn to cooperate if he hopes to make a new home for his family. And just maybe, along the way, he'll find out why they're living a life in exile.

    Experience the epic first installment of a litRPG saga perfect for fans of C. M. Carney, Blaise Corvin, and Charles Dean.

    Narrated by Peter Berkrot (Alpha World, Earth Force).

    way too religious

    while it started off pretty damn good, i had a very hard time with the way things played out after the heavy undertones of Christianity started to pop up. the watchers are unsaid angels weather fallen or not, and the family that this book is based around has both parrents as full on devout followers, to the point that the mother is the daughter of a pastor. things took an even more skewed turn toward "religion is good for you" when right after they apear in the world when the son gets attacked.

    now dont get me wrong. im not against religion, but understand that i find it difficult to continue, when the instead the mother healing her son which she knows how to do since she had the knowledge planted into her mind in "character selection", she screams at the sky quite litterally "God, help me" and... time ... fucking freezes... just so she can make a choice of serving one of three aspects of the "creator" and after making said choice she get not one or two lvls but 7 lvls added AND access to a rare class.... im sorry what? that trivializes the whole conflict in which the monster is lvl 8 and they are lvl 1.

    she is then (again quite literally) struck by the light of god and given said power and lvls and class. that is when i stopped and just couldnt continue.

    im sorry, i tried but this is not for me.

    Religious jargon really turned me off

    So, I made it up to chapter 3, and the incredibly painful parallels to christian mythology just really turned me off to the story. First, the wife is portrayed as about the most stereotypical Nagging Housewife in the Book of Tropes, so that wasn't very enjoyable to listen to. Add to that, her blind faith, and the game system reinforcing that faith, just really annoyed me personally. "Daughter of Truth" ? Really? Just because she believes in christianity? Come on.

    I'm an atheist, and so I'm sure some of you will probably say "oh well that explains it" , but I don't really have an issue with religion in stories. Some of my favorite characters in fiction are religious characters, and people of faith. But this just feels way too much like the author inserting their own belief system into the book.

    Maybe that's not the case, maybe the book gets better and goes beyond that, but I doubt it. Between having the obvious Satan stand-in character, who is clearly the antagonist, being evil because he dared question things, and propping up the annoying wife as a Daughter of Truth because of her religion, and constantly telling her that her faith will save them, blah blah...yeah I just...I really doubt it will change with the book. I found myself totally tuning out right around the time I'm supposed to be getting interested. I seriously didn't even make it through the character generation sequence, which is usually right where things get good.

    But, yeah I just lost all interest in this, in record time.

    Great epic fantasy and LitRPG!

    This novel mixes LitRPG with Epic Fantasy and is just simply a fantastic listen narrated by Peter Berkrot, for any lover of either genre.

    EDIT: I've edited my review specifically to address the stupidity and nigh unto out right bigotry of some of the negative reviewers reasons for 1 staring this book. If a family just BEING religious, if religious people just existing in a mild way is that offensive too you, how do you go about your day? Yes, the main cast is religious. But it in no way is addressed in an inappropriate manor, and the author even leaves theological interpretation of events to the characters and the audience. The audience, like myself, can out right disagree with the characters interpretation of events... That is a hard and fine line to walk and Sean Oswald the author does an amazing job doing just that.

    As for the cosmic beings doing their thing... virtually ALL portal fantasies have SOME kind of cosmic power that directly interferes... would they have been as offended if it was Oden and Loki? Because those were real world religions... and guess what, you can interpret the two cosmic entities as just that if you wanted to read it that way. If you're looking to be offended by even the slightest hint of real world people being real world people, then you're going to be... nothing will stop you. Just don't lie about the book.

    Great take on an amazing genre

    I don't think anyone who has dreamed of waking up in a fantasy world dreamed of doing so with their wife and kids. It's interesting to see the family dynamic. The system is fun and easy to follow. Definitely looking forward to the next!

    This is what LirRPG is about.

    I was given a chance to try this book and I’m so glad I did! This has to be one of my top three LitRpg books to date. It starts a little bit slow but by chapter 4 I was hooked. I will definitely be buying book 2 when it comes out.

    Solid Debut LitRPG novel... Looking for more

    Enjoyed several things about this book. Narration is solid for one. Also, I love the bang for your buck with audiobook. You want a lot of listening time for one credit, this is your next read, haha. But the relationships between characters, the cool twists on classes, and the fight scenes all got me the most.

    Can't wait for the next one

    I love the narrator in Alpha World and now I've got another series to look forward to.

    I really enjoyed the authors take on how different a gaming world would be if you weren't alone making decisions, but had to take into consideration how these choices would affect your family, and your ability to protect your family. It was also cute the jealousy the MC showed at times when his wife or daughter would do something spectacular just because they didn't have any preconceived limitations on what is possible in a gaming world.

    Good start, give it a chance

    I enjoyed this litrpg while it was new and different I truly still had some issues with it. I seriously hope that the author doesn't negotiate deals as a lawyer as his character does because this guy only gets the short end of the stick, whether contract, criminal or family law this guy needs to be more aggressive about to win.
    I also don't understand that if he complains all the story about protecting his family and wanting a class why he didn't take the unique one of kind death knight class and become immortal to always be around to protect his family.
    The other issues I have are little things, such as him failing to use all his gaming experience, but talks about that same experience in another breath. This can be worked out in the next book, but we will see. I look forward to seeing where this goes and if the MC starts using logic for his decision making rather than emotions such as leaving the family with level zeros or asking the same 13 year old to protect a younger 8 year old while not allowing him to level up to do just that.
    Well overall I still think this is a good listen and worth the credit so give it a chance.

    A refreshing take on the LitRPG genre

    At first I was concerned that Dave and his family would be logging into yet another virtual world but I was wrong. While getting teleported to an alternate dimension which adheres to game rules is not entirely original, doing so with your entire family is a plot structure I have yet to encounter.

    I loved the way the story never focuses on one member of the family too heavily and how we see the world through the various family members perspective. This keeps things exciting and fresh. I hope future installments will focus more on Jackson and Sara. I do feel bad for Jackson not getting to play much of a role in this book.

    The narrator Peter Berkrot does an excellent job. He excelled with the evil character, although sometimes his voice tends to sound a little more sinister than the situation calls for.

    My only complaint is now I have to wait for more. I am greedily awaiting whatever future installments in this series have to offer and hope they come sooner rather than later.

    I couldn't stand the dumb family father

    the story is nice and all, but it was a constant embarrassing and pain to hear the dumbness of the family father. all other characters are okay and also the story, so when you don't mind a really dumb character making bad decisions and be jealous of his own family it will be okay ... but I rather like smart people ;)
    and this Dave was just a bit too dumb ...

    It gets better

    The start is slow, first with a prologue starring two mystical beings, which drags on, then focusing on the Nelson family. The Nelson family is a christian going-to-church on sunday family that banned cursing in favor of saying "freak!", "darn" etc. Main protagonist is Dave, hobby-gamer and father, who is at the same time protective of his family and very jealous of their achivements. While I do appreciate a flawed main character, it worked a bit too well and he comes over as too self-centered, and craving to be the hero. The humor mostly fell flat for me and I don't need to know how every single damage and XP number is calculated, thank you. However, if you manage to stick to the story long enough, more characters and locations are intruduced. Especially from the point on when the king and his subordinate were introduced, I thought "okay this might not be soo bad after all". The story slowly picks up steam, the family becomes more interesting and the end made me want to get the next book as well.

    Speaker: Peter Berkrot is not bad, but brings too much pathos to the first part of the book. Can't quite decide if it was the story or the speaker though. But not every sentence needs to be emphasized with how dire the situation is. This too gets better, or I got used to it.

    great concept, bad execution

    The Story and concept of this audiobook is great, but the pace is so slow and repetetive that it is really boring at times. Way too many different character perspectives, just sticking to the main character or at least only the family members would have been so much better. Basically nothing at all happens in the first 10 hours, just repetition of the same stuff from different perspectives, if you would put the same story in 10h instead of 20 it could have been a great one..
