Publisher's Summary

The ads enthused, "The virtual lands of Mirror World await you! Live out your most secret dreams in our world of Sword and Sorcery! Become a Great Wizard or a Famous Warrior! Build your own castle, tame a dragon, conquer a kingdom! All those desperate, lonely, and insecure - Mirror World offers you a chance!"

But Oleg isn't meant to become a great wizard or a famous warrior. He'll never have a castle of his own. Nor will he ever tame a dragon. And he's definitely not the type to conquer a kingdom, however virtual it may be.

Oleg is doomed to toil away in the recesses of Mirror World's mines. His goal is to raise enough money for a heart transplant for his dying six-year-old daughter. The clock is ticking. Will he make it?

    Story
    "Ehhh, a bit overrated."

    It got good reviews on Goodreads, so I decided to pick up on it. But it was a disappointment.

    Daughter needs money? Overused but sure. But the character is just bad. He is very whiney, by both the author and narrator. He complains about everything. He always think this and that is not important and a waste of time and ends up regretting it after.

    Then, there is the game itself. It just makes little sense to me. The author isn't much of a game designer, not enough of one to write a LitRPG. I don't want to spoil it but it just doesn't work.

    Next is the narrator. He needs to google how to pronounce many words. It is bad, like "elves to alves". And his narrated the main character into an even more annoying character than it already is. It is literally like a snobby whining kid.

    The character is mediocre.
    The game is less than mediocre.
    The plot is mediocre.
    The narrator is just bad.

    "Truly a Fun LitRPG story."

    I'm in love with story's about people being made in to video game Heroes. The "play to live" series is very close to this book however they have very different plots. The narrator is a true gem. I picked this book with a hope that it has fully satisfied. I can't wait for more books! Please take my money!

    Story
    "mmo player"

    I quite enjoyed this listen... narrator was good but at times the tone..inflection? of the narrator on things like "he said" did not match the tone of the rest of the conversation but was only a few times at the start. As a online player I enjoyed the story but I didn't really feel the writer knew all the in n outs of hardcore gaming in an mmo but I guess this works as the main char is a "Newb" . Also the only reason I could forgive his naivety!

    So, it was an easy enjoyable listen and am going to purchase the sequel.

    "Forgettable"

    Maybe it's because I was spoiled by Ready Player One and Awaken Online, but this was very forgettable. The story progressed too slowly for my liking and offered up far too few interesting moments.

    "Love this genre"

    Completely addicted to LiTRPGs. Audible needs to keep these coming. This one is just as good as the way of the shaman and play to live if you like those series.

    "Worth listening"

    The story is ok, not as good as other books in the genre but overall entertaining enough to listen too.
