Publisher's Summary

Armon Ellington is 19 year old kid that always felt out of place. He's an orphan, a gamer, and a role playing game geek. When he dies after a 72 hour gaming marathon, instead of going to an afterlife he's transported to a new world governed by rules that are eerily similar to the RPG games he loves. On this new world, Terra, he can be anything he wants, a warrior, mage, or even a crafter. Only, Armon wants more than that, he also wants friends and family.

Join Armon on his journey through this amazing new world where he'll go on adventures, explore dungeons, slay monsters and hopefully find the friends and family he never had on Earth.

    "Good litrpg"

    So I heard about this book from the Author's podcast (Litrpg) and I was, shall we say, trepidatious partly because I didn't want to be disappointed by an author I had some sort of connection to (even if tenuously) and by the fact that to my knowledge this is his first book. So it went on my "to read" list and kept on getting pushed back until I found out there would be an audible release which I decided to wait for. The good news it's an actually fun book. I'll be picking up the rest with enthusiasm. It doesn't quite hit the upper echelon of this genre but it's far from just meh and definitely worth my credit.

    Starting off there are a few derivative plot points such as the "seed of chaos" idea but there are some other ideas that take things into different directions than some of the books with a similar plot point has. Such as the reincarnation aspect and the adopted family helping him catch up to where he should be at his age. The main character isn't, at least as of right now, overly powerful. Nor is he all that obviously different from those around him beyond some of his attitudes towards the non human races and his point of view about certain social mores. The main thing that gives him a bonus early on is a fairy companion and later his adopted families but again, he started far behind what a native in this world would at his age.

    There's also hints at a lot of crafting progression though by the end of the book he's still at the beginning levels there. The narrator did a fantastic job and the only reason I gave a four out of five stars is because I can think of some stand out performances that I've liked even more. If I could have given 4.5 stars I would have. This is a solid start for a series and it managed to pull a few chuckles out of me which is always a big plus. Perhaps later I'll look back and think it's worth 5 stars it really depends on just where the later books take us. I'm looking forward to more Mr Mejia.

    "too much unnecessary romance for me"

    Great until the last hours where it became a boring romance but last few minutes made up for it though.

    What made the experience of listening to Beginnings the most enjoyable?

    The voice acting was good. The story made me want to know more at the end of every chapter.

    The first time he fought the Boar Boss.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When he finished the goblin quest lol.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a lot and I did cry a few times.


    Any additional comments?

    I want the next book soon but if you need time to make another great book then I will be happy to wait :) Also please make the next book a little longer :)

    "loved the story"

    the story is really well written, the narrator was good as well. I think Nick Phodel should have teamed up with Jill Smith. The two of them would make a great team let Jill do the female voices and let Nick do the male and the monster voices.

    "Good Start!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Probably not, not because this book isn't good but because I don't know anyone else who enjoys litRPG books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    MC I don't know I just seem to like the MC most in all books that I read.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't do spoilers.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Wouldn't make this book a film, I just like audio books and reading much more.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read a lot of litRPG books lately and I felt that this book was a ray of sunlight in the muddled mess of dumb crap. instead of making a harem story about a sex deprived teenaged boy it seems to focus more on the story! Sure the author needs to work on his writing a bit but this book is definitely a good start to a series that I will be following. If you like the sub-genre of litRPG definitely pick up this title.

    "Great Narrator clunky Story"

    Story was OK and worth the credit but a little awkward. Other recent stories have explored this idea with a bit better imagination and subtly. The protagonist Entry into the world is a little heavy handed and his back story does not feel authentic to his character.

    "amazing book! one of the best immersion narrations"

    By far one of the best immersion narrations I have ever heard. the book ended with me wanting more and I can't wait for book two. I hope it's narrated by the same person.
