    "Great listen. Needs edits"

    I loved this story, well thought out, interesting concepts, good characters, and development, with the exception of some of the minor "party" characters.

    The one thing that really bugged me was the stat listings after every chapter. While it probably looked good in the book, maybe with a picture like a baseball card, it is annoying to hear the narrator read it.

    The only other note I have is that it's very much a series book, doing a lot of setup at the sacrifice of its own story arc. I hope the new one comes out soon, as I feel like I just finished half a book.

    Story
    "Quickly devolves into erotica."

    The book was fairly entertaining until it rapidly shifted from LitRPG to pretty crass erotica. If that's your thing, you'll love this, otherwise, if recommend passing.

    Story
    "Chaotic Good at it's Finest"

    A main character that's gotten his hands dirty. Is willing to get his hands dirty for what us emotionally correct if not legal. How far would you go if someone hurt a child that was dear to you? And I mean hurt bad? I know how I would answer, and this MC has that same dark rage. Nit a saint, but defiantly a hero.

    Narration is a good fit, character development is spot on. This is worth either the credit or the $$ for it.

    I am eager for book 2 when it eventually hits Audible!

    Story
    "One of the worst LitRPGs I've experienced"

    Main character is an unlikable pervert. The author attempts to give him endearing qualities by making him polite to the NPCs and a good tipper, but this isn't nearly enough to do the job. Even the narrator gets bed him a gruff and snide sounding voice.

    The erotica was overdone, unexpected, and unwanted. The main character is a "literal" sadist.

    The grinding an leveling was boring and the same over and over again. Other authors at least manage to entertain with the group be, but this author seemed to not want to make the effort. It was either kill an Ork or kill a Goblin, and there was never much suspense. Even the subplots, although showed some promise, went absolutely nowhere.

    I highly recommend yo suggest this book to anyone you don't like and would like to see suffer.

    "meh"

    not very entertaining, not funny, and not a good story. way too much concentration on relationships and social stuff particularly comments about sex that didn't add to the entertainment value of the story. nothing special happened and the main character has exactly one gimmick which isn't very important. the prisoner thing was overplayed as if to imply that the main character is some sort of anti-hero.

    "Worst book I've ever read!!!"

    I've never given a book below a 3 star rating before. This book is written not by a writer but by a video game player trying to live out porn fantasies. The writing style in this book is atrocious. There is no antagonist in the entire story and the writer lazily skirts giving details of characters. Getting through the entire book was painful, but I kept hoping there would be improvement. Alas, it never came.

    "gamer for life?"

    if you have ever played a game you will become bored very easy.This story really needs more then is here. For a bedtime story this will really put the kiddies to sleep.,and you as well. the book could be better with a total rewrite. Sorry to be so honest but I calls it as I read it.
