Summary

Adam Harris’s name has just appeared on a top secret list of extraterrestrial origin. Unbeknownst to him, he’s one of a handful of individuals capable of implementing a Save Point, a static moment in time he’s able to revisit over and over upon death.

It’s a good thing, too. Brain cancer was turning into a real drag....

The government owns the list though, and they’ve wasted no time snapping him up. According to them, he has 13 days in an alien realm to learn as much as he can before the inevitable, at which point his memories, skill progressions, and weapon proficiencies will endure despite his body resetting.

Then it’s rinse and repeat.

But there are unwritten rules to the game he’s about to play, and unseen forces acting in judgment. 

Adam will have to learn the hard way that dying is the easiest thing he’s going to do today.

Horrible

I cant stress enough how arrogant, useless and idiotic the mc is. He does everything without thinking, doesnt listen to key info and is just bad at everything. I tried so hard to continue reading but I just cant continue, the mc runs the story

Gripping from the start

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.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Narration and then some!

This was my first litRPG novel, I'm not a big gamer so wasn't sure what to expect, but I found it engaging and fun.
I like sci-fi, so thought I'd give it a listen and found myself pretty absorbed within a short space of time.

I really enjoyed the use of light sound effects throughout the narration. It added an extra element to draw you further into the story. The narrator was easy too listen to, and had a good handle on the text. The extra voices played from the other two narrators were great, not a full blown audio drama, but close enough for such a long runtime.

I received a copy free in agreement of an honest review.

Worldbuilding, growth, and great performance!

I could tell from the start that I was interested in this book, and that it was well-written. Unfortunately, it also opened up pretty immediately with the main character being a) unlikable and b) a horrendously cringe-inducing neckbeard. THANKFULLY, a) he does appear to develop in some positive directions in the latter half of the book and b) the portrayal of and interactions with a certain female character which made me grimace repeatedly took place all early on. I've gone through a few other books with one or the other issue, and make it a practice to give them a chance to improve- luckily in this case that happened.
By and large, I enjoyed the characters, the banter, and most of all the worldbuilding and the powers. I want more, and look forward to seeing how the final twist (it's a good one, and not just an abrupt gut-punch) plays out in future novels. I also finished the book hopeful that the main character won't stay a person who I instinctively dislike every time he opens his yap.

Will Watt does a strong job as lead narrator, and the rest of the cast does great jobs as well. My only complaint was that there are some sound effects thrown in, and they felt a bit haphazard. I only recall hearing one or two that I thought added to the narration, while the majority pulled me out of it because they necessitated a pause in the narration or just were so abrupt. They weren't pervasive, so I didn't consider it a major flaw, but by the same token...I think I'd have actually enjoyed the book more without any.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Fantastic story and top notch narration!

With terminal brain cancer, having been abducted by aliens, and thrust into a game world with the future of mankind on the line - the MC has a lot on his mind!

Fascinating game system and level progression!

This one is fun guys!

I cant wait for the next book in the series to come out!

Creative blend of SciFi and Fantasy LitRPG

Save Point: Upload is a creative blend of SciFi and Fantasy wrapped up in a LitRPG shell. The action starts early in this book and keeps up throughout the novel. The characters are great, although the MC does take a while to grow on you. I found the way the author blended the SciFi elements in the “real” world and the fantasy elements in the game world to be creative and original. The narration in this book was great. I haven’t listened to any of his other work, but I’ll be sure to check out more of his books in the future. Overall, this was a great listen and I can’t wait for book two.

This audiobook was provided by the one of the narrators at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.

Wow talk about slow!

Slow moving story. MC was pretty annoying. Wasn't sure what to expect when I bought the book, but had hoped for a bit more.

That’s easy enough get a gamer, a master strategist, one who is on deaths door step and has nothing to lose and everything to prove. Kidnap force him in and don’t tell him anything about and see what happens. He kicks ass and finds ways to work the system no one has ever though of. But will there be enough time for him to make a difference? Find out here in book one of this great new LITRPG series. And as always sound booth theater does a masterful narration.
