Summary

Does your life suck? Need a helping hand?

When Shaun’s life continues to go from bad to worse, he is offered the chance to escape into an epic game world. One with the power to repair his mind and body while he lives out his wildest dreams.

What could possibly go wrong?

It turns out fighting monsters and obesity is tough wherever you are! Then there’s the unrequited love. Weren’t the women supposed to fall head over heels with the hero? Not in Anatoli, a brutal and unforgiving land on the brink of apocalypse.

If Shaun can survive this very real experience, he might just get to be a hero back in the real world!

Introducing Condition Evolution, the updated and re-edited second edition. It's finally here and it has evolved!

Good listen

I enjoyed this book . Twas a nice short book that sorta started and finished in one . Although the great twist at the end opened up the next book , I feel the bulk of the story was completed .

Thought the narrator did a good job .
I’m also not very good at writing reviews .
Peace

Loved it

Great listen, loved the MC and overall story and progress ! Look forward to the next book if Kevin decides to do another, which hopefully he will ! Only thing I didn’t like was that I thought it was too short and it was over so soon !

Great Story

I enjoyed the story. Voice actor was very good too. Ending was not what I thought it would be but that's what makes it good.

If only these pods existed!

Nice twist on the standard LirRPG, rather than talk about the story and end up spoiling it - it’s worthy of a purchase and a listen.
My only critique is like all audible be it a male narrator or a female, when they do the other genders voices it does work. But the narrator is clear, no broad accent, will have to look out for his other works.

Story is a good premise but its rushed. needed to be two books not one in order to include the important detail.

Not really sure how to feel about this one.

The story is.. Lame. Sure the premise is interesting. A therapy using a game world to kick addiction while Nanites or whatever repair your body.

Inside the game was.. Bland. It was made for a handful of people so it feels more like a co-op game instead of world were supposed to care about.

The ending inside the game was lackluster. Plus the romance was.. Off, somehow. Didn't come off as genuine to me. I never felt it, only heard about it.

The ending 'outside' the game was by far the most interesting thing about this book. Really, it made this book feel more like a pre-qual. I suspected some type of genetic manipulation based off the title. Somehow tied to the levels he got in game.

It turned out far more interesting than I was expecting. Honestly that ending is why this is 4 starts and not 3 or even 2. It took me by surprise, which is rare since this book is in the 800 range for me.

Even though there's Body shaming is show great po

He Hu those sorts off with some body shaming and real life side effects of that it too has grown into an interesting trapped in a game Also end up revealing some hidden great secrets about the universe at the end and set things that for the next book I didn't like the 1st parts of course but halfway through it did start to grow as a change from predictable having us and little twists hopefully it gets better in the next book

That was actually very good

Got this audio book for free as part of a giveaway and ended up really enjoying it. Am about to buy the next one even though I feel like it's a bit short for the price. Definitely recommend.

An Intriguing Start

Condition Evolution is a really fun story. It maybe three longest prologue I have ever read on top of that. The narration was top notch as well. I'm going to jump straight into book 2.

Fantastic

This is a new author for me. I do enjoy Mr. Gililand's narration and here he did a phenomenal job. Each character had a unique voice, each impactful part of the story resonated. As for the story, it flowed smoothly with great pacing. A real treat and worth the credit.

good listen

ok let's start by saying it was a pretty good book. as to some improvements if you could of made the book 2 hours longer then it would not of felt rushed. I feel that the advancement speed was to quick and that by just making the book sprawl out more that it would of made a huge difference. so long story short more fluff

pleasantly surprised

I figured to give this book a try, and although there were some "too stood to live" moments it was well worth the listen. Also I'll just say the ending plot twist so hard it nearly broke my neck.
