Publisher's Summary

Joe's body is failing him. In order to make his last weeks of life more palatable, he goes into full digital immersion. This new process will allow him to play in a virtual environment with a fake but healthy and strong virtual body. As soon as he steps into this new environment he meets his virtual assistant, an Evolving Intelligence (E.I.), who takes the form of someone close to him and goes by the name Spooky. After explaining how the game will function, she gives him his first items.

Before Joe and Spooky can begin playing the game, they are both summoned to a reality where magic is real. Due to the coincidental timing of this event, Joe believes this is all just part of the digital immersion. He is unaware that the summoning has healed his real body, making him now truly young and powerful. As he still believes that he's dying, he lives every moment to the fullest, unaware that he is now a near immortal. What will happen to his assistant, the E.I., once placed in this new reality? Will they survive their new environment or will the myriad of dangers swallow them up?

    "Pretty entertaining "

    idk why some people didn't like the book because of one of the characters names, it didn't bother me that much. I rather enjoyed the book

    "Middle of the road ok"

    The book took a long time to develop and when the characters speak it was too proper. So its hard to get a feel for the character itself. Everyone usually has some slang when they speak. That never comes across the pages so the MC just seems odd when he talks. Especially if he is from present or future our speaking vocabulary is so full of slang that it feels unnatural when you hear some one speak as if it was written on a page. Story was just ok. New concepts which i liked but execution was lacking

    "No, just no."
    Has You're Not Allowed to Die turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No just this author.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by J. D. Jackson?

    Maybe


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from You're Not Allowed to Die?

    Made three hours in then gave up. So safe to say I would have canned the project.


    Any additional comments?

    If you want my opinion on this book lookup JRR Tolkien's quote about allegory and that pretty much sums up my feelings on this book.

    "Nice spin on lit-rpg style."

    I enjoyed the story, some parts could have been better but enjoyable experience nun the less. Book 2 out soon so more than likely 6 months to a year for next book on Audible to be released.

    Story
    "Good but I was not hooked. "

    I struggled with this from the start. I did not make it much further once the name spooky stuck... sorry but I could not go through with it.

    The lay out and story was something I was really interested in. Unfortunately I personally just could not work with that name being said constantly.
