Enter a mesmerizing tale reminiscent of the wonder of Ready Player One and the adventure of Game of Thrones

Book 1 of a 7 Book series that will Amaze and Delight you for weeks! 

Tricked into a world of banished gods, demons, goblins, sprites and magic, Richter must learn to meet the perils of The Land and begin to forge his own kingdom. Actions have consequences across The Land, with powerful creatures and factions now hell-bent on Richter's destruction.

I don't get the style of the "narrated RPG"

what this is, is an RPG game for someone who does not play games. the literary value of this is close to zero. and although there is a place for books that do not require any brain power whatsoever, I never thought that you can pay no attention to the content and yet know exactly what is going on.

Not for me...

Never would have downloaded if I'd listened to sample. Suitable for a younger audience probably.

DING, this book sucks

Play a video game instead, very difficult to get through maybe it would be easier to read? The narrator does a good job but constantly reading off stats and DING notifications becomes very frustrating also incredibly boring.The storyline is had potential but becomes very basic with little in depth story or any real emotions. Maybe I missed something but the character is awfully accepting of the loss of his reality and friends/ family, its bizarre. I have no idea how this book has such a a high rating.

Boring story with superb narration

I have bought this book, because of the great reviews. I can't recall a single moment when I was in doubt about the turns of the story. I think it was because there are no turns, or surprises. Go to X or Y location, understand the context, kill the bad guy, loot. Repeat over and over.

The narration is superb, but I do not recommend this book under any circumstances. Boring is an understatement.

it's ok.

The good: there are some good characters, and lots of funny moments, the world is decent enough.

The bad: it's slow, there's too much description of individual items, there's an annoying ding a lot, there's nothing about the real world once the main character leaves it.

Overall: it's enjoyable but lacks complexity.

"What does the fox say" - It says this book is bad

What would have made The Land: Founding: A LitRPG Saga better?

Stop with all the dead references, as soon as I heard the "what dos the fox say" reference it absolutely killed the book

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.

The Land

This will be a review of the whole series not just the first book.
This LITRPG series is in the top 3 easily, it writes of the earth side of it in the first 20 min and gets strait to it, which i cant fault it for. The main man in this is giving some OP traits right out of the gate. All long term stuff nothing like a OP sword no just more point per level and the skill to learn any skill. there are a few other but i'm not going to sit here and type his character sheet out.
You know hes going to be a long term power house.
This book has gore not in unchecked amounts but revilement to what damage and spell was used. Also in the later books there is ............... you can be shocked like i was. You can feel the pain unknowing as well.
the story arks quickly and there is a lot of opened ended quests. if i could read his full quest book i think i would uninstall because i know there is not enough days in a year to do all those side quest. in all its a LITRPG its no Stephen king story line its a quick hardcore levelling story and some city building.
Also voiced by Nick Podehl , wicked performance and one of my favourites a long side RC-Bray

Unbelievable series

First review I have ever written, but I wanted to give kudos to the author and narrator. Hard to believe that Dr. Kong was writing this in the evenings while still maintaining a busy physician practice during the day. Despite being self-published, the book was remarkably polished and the creativity and depth of The Land is truly something to behold (the next 6 books are just as good). And Nick Podehl's ability to create specific voices for all of the characters, then maintain those flawlessly throughout the lengthy books is Oscar-worthy.

Not What I Expected, but SO GOOD!!!

When people think of a novel they many times see the normal arc of intro, conflict, climax, and resolution. This book takes that concept and throws it to the wind! It builds upon it self with many different stories, all having there own arcs, all at once. These stories intertwine in a way that feels natural and fluid. Also if you are like me and love to see things grow from humble beginnings to something spectacular than you will absolutely love this book!

Where has this been my whole life!

I cannot believe i have never heard of this genre and book before. The author has such a genuine feel for his story and it's refreshing to see a story without compromises.Anyone who is a fan of games, fantasy, anime or just really good story telling will love this series.

A great performance, and a great story

I’ll start with the story, it was great.
Well it became great. The beginning was rough. Like, I want to punch the main character in the face rough. He just came off as trying so hard to be funny and make light of his situation. But this changed quickly. He really grows on you as time goes on and he grows up considerably. The rest of the characters are quite likeable and the story and quest lines feel really grand. I throughly loved the world of “The Land” and will definitely be buying the rest of the series
Performance- I have no issues.
The narrator does a fantastic job. The individual voices were great to here and really added to the character depth. I really enjoyed the Mama characters voice.

CAUTION: this book will get you hooked on this series

AMAZING ENTERTAINMENT!! This book will get you hooked on this whole series! I bought this first book thinking I would try it out and didn’t listen to another audiobook until I finished all 7 books in the series so far! I loved the world that Aleron creates and Nick Podehl brings to life in this amazing adventure story. The story grows on you just as the characters are growing in their levels and roles. It shows how a great leader is formed - by serving and protecting his people. Overall great story line and I can’t wait for the next book in the series!!! Gnomes rule!

the narrator made me feel like I was in the story

I quite enjoyed the first book of the series. It was a very interesting book. My favorite moment was probably when Richter stole all the belongings from the Baron.
I quite enjoyed listening the narrator. The narrator did such a good job. I felt like I was in the story, traveling with the characters step-by-step, feeling what they felt.

Truly Immersive

I was so immersed in the world this book creates. I was having flashbacks to the excitement of playing world of Warcraft at 10 and to truly endless adventures that await. 100% recommend to anyone

Beautiful Progression

As the story blooms so does our righteous protagonist, as a fan of character development and progression in Rpg games this was a fun read and I would recommend if you're also watching the anime "Rising of the shield hero"
