Gamers are celebrities. Superstars. Idols to the masses. Only a few ever make it out of Piper's Mill, most toil their lives away in the small town just dreaming of a better life. Liam thought he had a comfortable life all worked out when it winds up wrenched away from him. Drawn into other's schemes to hack the game and steal some spotlight he never expects to find himself playing in a game nobody has ever heard of. He never expects to find himself deep in a dungeon at level one with no gear and barely any skills. He certainly would never anticipate suddenly being tied to forces that promise not just to reshape his life, but the world outside the game. Time to level up.

"Decent Short Read"
This is an okay book if you are into Litrpg. If not look into Ready Player One or The Gam3
Back story was weak but the "rpg" elements were okay. Some sexuality that seemed overboard in one chapter but in no way an erotica.
It took me awhile to get used to the narrator. It was painfully obvious he was just reading a book, but you get used to it or maybe he got into the groove later on.
"A fun read for tabletop and digital rpgers alike"
This book was worth the time. Some interesting ideas I'll use in my campaign. I also liked the goddess choice used.
Can't wait for the next one. Main character is intriguing enough to keep reading if not always sympathetic.
"OK premise little predictable"
not a bad story but a little awkward and no real character development. None of the characters are particularly likeable or relatable. I get wanting a story from the bad guys point of view but there is merely exposition to try and convey character development.
The performance really pulled me out of the story. This is a litrpg however, outside of a couple references, there was no interaction in the real world. They make mention of it occasionally but the entire book takes place inside the game. It reads like someone recorded a Saturday night DnD session, nothing of note and the characters are all forgettable.
I should have heeded the other reviews.
Hopefully the author gets better and learns from this one.
"Interesting story line and action"
This appears to be a simple dungeon crawl story, but it actually is from a more evil side of life. It would be worth saying it is perhaps a more selfish side of life than evil. Interesting story for a dungeon crawl and the plot is developing so I look forward to seeing how it goes.
The timing of the speaking was poor from the narrator. If slowed does to 0.75, which I listened to it at it sounded all the time like the narrator was slightly worse for wear for drink. at 1 it was a bit fast to listen to and seemed breathless.
This needs a lot more work as it is the good tale/yarn that keep me on the tale, not the narration. In fact half the time I read the story rather than listen to the narrator.
Not really I have read other books whilst this was on, though I was keen to see the story arc and how the tale ended. I do very much like the book.
