Not a particularly good or bad short story. Got it as a freebie, but wouldn't pay anything for it.

Narrator was great though

LitRPG is my favourite genre. Despite this, I couldn't finish this book. It was just too shallow. The main character had no fear for his life despite the first quest he took warning him it was too hard for him, and if he died, he would be thrown in with a load of dead bodies - assuming meaning that he would be perma dead? He was like nah its ok, back on earth I was the number 1 fighter in the world. There was no real thought, just acceptance of everything. Unnecessary highlighting of his friends boobs on their first meeting in this game world. Didn't bring anything to the story at all. Overly simplistic and juvenile.

Around 11 minute 41 sec, mark the narrator repeats himself "and hundreds of men in black suits turned as Alfred chased after the little red head. And hundreds of men in black suits turned as Alfred chased after the little red head". Surely an error?

The narrator did well despite the mistake above and the lack of depth in the book. He gave the characters their own voice which helped with identifying who was speaking at the time.

Wow, such a bone chilling listen. Carl's lack of empathy and morals were truly unsettling. I had never heard of Carl before listening to this book, and I have to agree with some of the other reviewers - he simply has to be the most evil killer.

The narration was perfect, I highly recommend listening to more of Steve White's narrations, which I plan to do too!

The amount of sheer detail the author has put into this book. Just take the intro for example, the amount of detail put into describing his thoughts as he listened to the door being knocked then eventually broken down. I was hooked from the start. I dont like giving too much away in my reviews in case I spoil things so won't say any more story wise.

I Love LitRPGs, it's probably my favourite genre these days, and this is up there with some of my favourites now! Can't wait to listen to the other books in the series.

Kudos to the narrators - fantastic job well done, and the addition of sound effects really helped with immersion.

I really enjoyed listening to this book. The narrator really enhanced the story - his voice was perfect for this.

Really enjoyed the fact that this was lots of bite-sized stories. Enjoyed the majority of the memoirs, but please do take note that this is NSFW (Not Safe For Work) ... Unless like me you wear headphones and can be discreet about it ;D

Five great stories that intertwine with each other. Only lost a star for my review as I found it confusing at some points and found myself relistening to parts to try make sense of it. Overall enjoyed though.

I did fall in love with the world created by the author here. The downfall to me is like another reviewer said - personal taste. I didn't particularly enjoy the style and there were errors that zapped me out of concentrating on the story.

Loved this audiobook so much, i just with there was more of it!

Loved the book from start to finish. It had 'that hook' that just grabs you and keeps you wanting to listen to more and more... But then it finishes and I still want more!!!

Fantastic narration too

Really enjoyed the story but felt so detached from it as the narrator portrayed very little emotion.
