Great summer read

After a quick purchase while on my way out of the country to the sun I wasn't expecting much. The combination of smart writing and an interesting plot idea has left me buying the next few books in the series.

Brilliant

It was an excellent book, filled with funny references and sarcastic moments. The character of Richter is amusing and reflects a typical young male, and his companion, is equally as endearing

Amazing series, worth the investment

This book and all others in the series I could not stop listening too. Aleron Kong has done an amazing job at bringing this world to life. the character development is amazing and makes me feel real nostalgic for the days I used to play MMORPGs

the only issue I had with this book was fixed in the books going forward. which was the loudness of the notification sound effects when items were obtained etc, this is fixed from book 2 onwards

5 star performance for nick too

Awesome

This is the 1st litrpg book I’ve read and was hesitant as I don’t play games, but wow. I was captured immediately, the narrator did a great job, sounded enthusiastic and obviously loves his job. The story was well written and I couldn’t tear myself away. Credit to the author I love fantasy and this were right up my street. An easy listen with lots of detail too. I’ve listened up to book 4, all great just can’t wait for book 5. Credit to the author

More like listening to a computer game

This could have been OK. But I barely endured it. Brrriiinnggg! You have encountered a creature. Big long list of stuff. Really? I'll not be getting the others.

Fantastic Series Well Worth The Read

Was flicking through audible looking for a new book to read and i found this and it immediately captivated me. The way the world is build and how the magic and skill systems are thought out are really interesting. The story is magnificent, Main character is hilarious. Don't really wanna say anything else apart from you will be missing out if you don't pick this up.

The narrator does this book so well and as soon as i was done i immeditaely picked up the rest of the books and have loved every single one of them.

Hope Aleron knows that hes doing an amazing job with this world he has built for us to enjoy.

Laughter, Tears, Mystery and Anger

You know its hard to not love a book that brings up the emotions you never want to let out. This book was not only hilarious but it also gave you that rage for villains you hate. It tore at your heart at parts and then left you confused with the mystery's that bring you back wanting more of everything. I'd recommend this Saga to anyone, even those who arent much into LitRPG because they will never want to put it down once they have had a taste.

Great RPG fiction!

I only wish my D&D characters had such luck! I find myself digging out my D&D books and inviting my teenaged sons and their friends to play a quest, and this book paints a picture that will help make our missions more vivid!

if you like rpg or fantasy get ready for a nerdgasm

Great story and performance, this was my first litrpg book and I see many more in my future. I felt like I was playing world of Warcraft or Skyrim. The level up prompts get a little annoying but it’s also good to remember what the characters stats are before moving forward through the book. Definitely worth a ready to see if you like LitRPG. :)

can’t wait to dive into the next one.

Insanely Entertaining Fantasy Story

This is a classic fantasy book for a new generation of readers. The pages turned so easily for me I could not put the book down. The main character is lovable, funny, and madly entertaining with his modern day humor. Read books 1-4 in the series over a weekend it was so good!

Excellent book made better

I purchased and read through the first 6 books in just over a week and the series is amazing. I saw the free sample of the first audio book on the author's Facebook page and after listening to it I was blow away that an already great series could get better. This was the first audio book I have ever purchased and it was well worth it. The story is amazing and Nick Podehl took the story to a whole new level with his excellent voice acting. I am eagerly looking forward to the next installment.

A Good Read/Listen

I enjoyed this one quite a bit. The premise of LitRPG is something I only recently decided to try, but I enjoy it and Aleron Kong had done a great job of maintaining feel I am growing to like do much.

This is good if you’ve ever played a MMORPG.

I didn’t think watching a character level up could be so interesting. If you’ve played a RPG video game before you’ll get a lot of the references. The is a great first book and I already bought the second.

Oh and the performance by Nick Podehl was out standing. He has an outstanding character voice range.
