What's that you say? You want more village growth? Well be careful where you stand, because the Mist Village just took a Viagra-Cialis sandwich and there is a stiff breeze blowing! (I can make some more references if you're still not getting the point...did you see what I did there?)

better and better

loved the book and story, as a fan of mmorpg I can enjoy imaging playing the game as the story unfolds.

The audio for this books makes it so much better tho, it's a perfect partnership for the two to make an amazing experience.

Looking forward to the rest of the series.

Saturation

I'm not that sure why I continued with these books. the first was okay but after that it's just a series of dungeon crawls with the main character finding a new remarkable magical item or resource at every turn and then everyone else being amazed by the find. It never feels like anything gets resolved and with every amazing item all the rest of his amazing items are a bit less amazing. It's an over saturation of magical items.

However my real issue is that the story gets nowhere fast, there always seems another distraction and anything which seems important other characters do while you follow around the main character who is almost unendingly in a dungeon accomplishing nothing narrative wise.

Fun but holes appearing....

I have enjoyed the past three novels but this one starts to show gaps. The main character alternates between frat boy and gracious ruler of ‘his people’ while accumulating quests - many of which appear to provide fodder for more books but would be more interesting to follow than what is currently being written. BTW - this book has nothing to do with the catacombs. So good fun - but not as good as some of the previous entries in the series.

The Standard just gets higher

Love the character development, it just gets more entertaining!
The story holds you so you want to complete one more chapter, the narrator sounds like he is enjoying himself and it reflects in his style. simply a great combination.

It's Aleron Kong & Nick Podehl narrating...

What made the experience of listening to The Land: Catacombs the most enjoyable?

I love the way Aleron Kong writes... so the stories themselves would be good enough for me... but when you throw in Nick Podehl's narration? It's just this combination that makes you feel like you cant get enough...

What other book might you compare The Land: Catacombs to and why?

I'm new to LITRPG's and The Land is really the first one I've gotten into...

Which character – as performed by Nick Podehl – was your favorite?

Probably the main character Richter... since he has to be such a strange read sometimes... he goes from talking all medieval to talking about goofy 2010 nerd culture stuff. So much fun.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The series has definitely been built up for me... there's such a high level of excitement inside me as I listen just because I know how good it's going to be because I've been so pleased with the previous 3 books. The majority of the book makes me laugh.... it hasnt made me cry yet.

Any additional comments?

If you like these books you need to join the litrpg facebook group and find out more about these books :)

Continued growth for Richter and Mist Village!

We are introduced to Stridex the Exile; a before unknown group of powerful creatures who will undoubtedly come into play at some future point. Richter, Randolphus (Randy) his Chamberlain, Scion his other-brother-from-another-mother, Fueton the floating misty ball, and of course Alma his familiar all continue to contribute to the growth of Misty Village. Richter continues to grow as well; his spells and abilities increase in level and power, as well as Richter’s physical self. Richter and Elma getting drunk at the village celebration were quite funny. The self-examination after the bear kill was interesting as well as the first group Richter formed as War Leader. Heaven’s Forge and the Dragon’s Philosopher Cauldron were also amazing. So much going on; it’s a great adventure!

Wish I had heard of LitTPG earlier

this series has to be one of the most original and interesting ways I have ever heard a story told. I have never heard of this genre before but i have fallen in love with this story.

Getting dragged out

The series started well but now feels like it's getting dragged out to make more money. The author keeps telling the same story but in a different location. The increasing use of sexual innuendos show clearly the decline in writing quality. And the skill leveling really gets on my nerves, a good quarter of the book at least is duplicate content. The author also forgets what he has previously written so there is little follow-up or development on decisions made. Its not worth a credit.
