The blurb reminded me of Luke Chmilenko’s Ascend Online, which meant it’s taken me ages to actually buy this.
But in the end I wanted to see for myself.
And omg how different it is.
My only real complaint is the anti-climatic end, but I can’t wait to see the next book.

Amazing

I read this when it first came out, and I was excited to hear the audiobook.

When Blaise said that he and Outspan wanted to have an MC you didn’t like at first, on my first reading I didn’t see it — but when I listened to it, with the intonation and the whining and the cowardly tones... I felt it and I couldn’t wait to get on to hear the courageous and clear minded strategic planner that Noah would become.

Ramon did an amazing job, and I was surprised when I teared up in places I hadn’t previously.

Overall I do feel that it’s a great listen.

The premise was a little disconcerting I'll admit -- the main character is a prisoner who is being experimented on -- but I was hooked the minute I picked the book up.
The depth in the characters -- the flaws that are present & the natural way that relationships form -- was refreshing.
The genre of LitRPG seems to be books about guys gaming & grinding, it's refreshing to see a book set in an MMORPG which is about the people and their personal development just as much as their character development.
Definitely a must read for anyone remotely interested in the LitRPG genre.

Peter Berkrot is amazing in his portrayal and I have relistened to these books many times.

This is a light read.
It deals with serious topics, but it’s not heavy.
It’s a slight awkward nerd who gets superpowers and the girls. And happily scrambles along wondering how it all happened.

Leland King does an amazing performance. He managed to keep everyone distinct and had great inflection and emotion.

I was initially turned off by the older literary name and book cover but there was a lot of word of mouth so I tried it.
And I was happily surprised.
The MC is OP but because he is flawed and makes bad choices it doesn’t mean he wins everything perfectly.
My main criticism would be hat he knows a lot about every topics — I wish I had acquired half his common knowledge — but this doesn’t really break the book.

I haven't heard of Guy William's work before but I was amazed by this narrator and really enjoyed how he made sure to keep each player distinct.

I just found these on audiobook — I had read them previously on Kindle Unlimited — and I really enjoyed them a second time as I binged on them.
I often find that by the time a series gets to the 5th or 6th book, they look track of the original story, but Jan Stryvant hasn’t.
It’s still a slightly awkward nerd who got the superpowers and the girls, who wants to live a happy life, and (f- it) get revenge.
Although it is not a serious / heavy story, they do touch on some serious subjects (eg slavery and non-con) and they are handled respectfully.
If you want a nice read about a fantastical battle with mystical s*** and kick ass women, then this is the one for you.

Great read

I just finished... and now I want to reread it.
Not only because I enjoyed it but also because there was so much to it that I feel I missed so much.
I have not read any of Noah’s works before but I will have to see if there are others I can read.

The group narration was amazing. Jeff Hays is one of my favourite narrators and while I have never heard one of Annie Ellicott’s before I definitely like the work she did so will have to look in to her work in the future.

I loved this story as soon as I started reading / listening to it.
I was hooked and didn't put it down until i was about 3/4 of the way through.
I will admit that I was unable to finish it -- my aunt recently passed away when I read this and it triggered me.
I love though that Daniel managed to write about such a sensitive topic with such grace and beauty.
His characters are real, broken and flawed in their own ways -- they aren't perfect and their story isn't amazing.
I keep restarting this book because i love the characters and their story, but i keep dropping it because of the previously mentioned trigger making it hard to read.
I would recommend this book though, a very good book.
