The witty banter isn't witty ..and adds zero value

The whole "slice of life" thing is completely overdone ...the character interactions feel really fake, and the narrator's main voice doesn't help make any of it more believable. The narrator does a good job changing voices for the respective characters, but the substance just isn't there.
I think that the "drama" is weak, and in general the writer's priorities are wrong. The whole tone of the story is just off-putting, and ruins what could've been a great series.

In my opinion, it kinda comes across as if the author is having a nerd fantasy where he's "the cool guy" who gets the girl and wins at everything. The ease with which all the monetary gains and power-ups happen makes everything a forgone conclusion.

The magic system and action sequences aren't good enough to tolerate such bad story telling. At the end of the book instead of feeling satisfied I just felt like I wasted a whole bunch of time.

stop it with the public domain sound effects

Sound booth has turned this series into a joke. Cheap sound effects, terrible voices that you can't understand what is being said, and an overuse of echo and reverb made this a chore to listen too. Frankly it sounds like no listened to this book post production.

Storywise, I've noticed some issues. Like Allister finally not putting up with someone's bs and being emotionally crucified for it. He just goes back to putting his hands up and apologizing to everyone.

Basically a door mat and a clown of a leader who is hen pecked and brow beaten by his girlfriend at every chance possible. It's an unhealthy relationship dynamic, and almost sitcom cringe in it's delivery.

Woman is goddess who is never wrong and slaps man on back of head at every opportunity. Man is dumb and so sorry for everything all the time. It's less of a romance and more of a mother son dynamic, which is creepy.

Also a weird plot point is this guy has the same amount of gold as some people who own solar systems, but doesn't use it to outfit himself and the core team with the best weapons, armor, skills and technology? Like he spends 300 million on Ai upgrades, but doesn't upgrade his peoples gear? He could literally buy anything... but relies on gear from low level mobs and crafters. It's weird.

Not bad, just frustrating at times.

MC keeps saying he has problems with notifications and never adresses it. Constantly skipping loot and "forgetting" items he has that could have helped or saved him in the future. Every gamer knows inventory management is a constant. This MC didn't get the memo

story is great

I cannot stand the extra sound effects. I love the story and what the mc goes through but the singing and the extra battle noises was too distracting. When I read it the first time I was happy. I do not plan on keeping this or the other two books. Please redo and take the extra noices out.

MC's voice

There are a lot of voice actors IN this book that would have been better for voicing Alistair. His accent sounds wrong and whiney. The narrator should have been left there and Jeff Hayes or someone else does the American MC.

Decent book buttttt......

I like the spin on how Willmarth combine future, fantasy, and post-apocalyptic at once. The plot is clever I enjoyed the first two books, this one was okay, I just kept getting annoyed by the circular theme of Alexander crying because someone he met once dying because they had to defend a stronghold, then them getting betrayed by a jealous leader. I also had trouble with the voice actor of Alexander he didn’t put much emotion or believability the character and he kind of sounded like and over annunciating drunk person speaking slowly (I know the description is a bit dramatic, but that’s as close as I could think of). I still am a fan of Willmarth, the book just started to agitate me.

Remove the Litrpg tag

In no way does this deserve the title lit rpg, the author barely mentions the stats or how they change the characters. Also skill evolutions are mentioned but never followed up on, author doesn't describe loot after fights at all ECT. The book itself is decently written, if a little repetitive and easy to predict. I was waiting for Allistor to check his loot he got for almost half the book. though and kinda pissed me of that he got a LEGENDARY item and didnt even check.

More of the same good stuff

It's a solid continuation of the story. I hate when characters act out of character to drive the story or create tension.The characters have remained mostly true. One exception possibly being the decision to fight the enemy in their own stronghold towards the end(trying not to spoil). Our MC has a long monologue about not wanting to lose human lives, but starts the most deadly battle they have faced. There's plenty of action. The fight sequences have been very formulaic to this point in the story. Get in a fight, get hurt, lose a few humans, mourn the loss. That's the standard for almost every encounter. Maybe don't kill a couple of people every fight and the reader would actually feel the loss? Good book though and I'll certainly get the next. 90/100.

Excellent edition

I am a huge fan of post apocalyptic litrps and this one is amazing. Firstly it is not stat heavy so is suitable for all. Secondly the MC has a brain! Many Litrpgs fail because the MC continues to make silly decisions (even though they show high levels of intelligence) fortunately the MC Alistair either uses his brain or refers to someone with the correct knowledge.

Finally this book is a great continuation from the previous two, it shows great character development and a unique world system. It also shows how the humans are integrating in the system. I can't wait to see how this series continues!

Exaggerated feelings

I dont know why but all the feelings are a bit too much. If the MC is nice its too much of nice, if he is angry it is too much anger, there is just 0% and 100% and no middle way, which leads to many cringy moments. My last issue is the convenience. The decisions the MC takes which could lead to problems the author does not want are just smoothed out, which is a bit sad cause it does not feel natural. But all in all it is a very entertaining audiobook, with a thankfully clever MC. The setting is great and never fails to excite! So you will get a great experience with minor flaws.

keep them coming

story keeps getting better. Really enjoying the fights and the planet take over. can't wait to get more of them. Narration is top notch and have different voices makes it much easier to know he is talking and makes them feel more alive

more of the same and that's a good thing

I really like this series of books, there is a sense of tension as established characters can die. but the best part of this book is the moments ware you see the whole, heavy is the head that wears the crown moments. you think would I be able to make that call. but aside from that the performance is seller as always and am looking forward to the next one
