really enjoyed the story, but Please! all there is to listen too is the first book. I want a series. I would help crowd fund the narrator if any litrpg authors have more, but cannot afford it. other people come out with a new story twice a year, but stop writing their old books. I love this world, and want to know more about the champ!

  • Ready Player One

At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

Ever since Martin Banks and his fellow computer geeks discovered that reality is just a computer program to be happily hacked, they've been jaunting back and forth through time, posing as medieval wizards and having the epic adventures that other nerds can only dream of having. But even in their wildest fantasies, they never expected to end up at the mercy of the former apprentice whom they sent to prison for gross misuse of magic and all-around evil behavior.

Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it's a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street. Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets.

I loved it, kinda reminded me of a mix of hitchhikers guide and the last enders game novels, don't remember specifically. but I think it's when Bean had his last spacecraft and children... been a long time, and of course much less silly than hitchhikers, but really funny to a nerd like me;) I haven't looked yet, but I hope I can listen to the next book, shoot I'd read it on my phone if audio wasn't out yet. Thanks Dennis, complimentary to this book, I've been playing the new, just realeased game on steam and Xbox one, Astroneer. Fracking amazing, and the two go together like Burt and Earnie!

The dead have risen, and they are hungry. Slow and plodding, they are legion. The undead hunt the living. Stop and they will catch you. Hide and they will find you. If you have a heartbeat, you do the only thing you can: You run. Survivors escape to an island stronghold: a cop and his daughter, a computer nerd, a garbage man with a piece of rebar, and an escapee from a mental hospital with a lifesaving secret. After reaching Alcatraz, the ever-expanding group of survivors realize that the infected are not the only threat.

Elude an army of doctors and soldiers who think he is the answer to the plague of the living dead. Flee back to his friends, a continent away. Can he safely traverse a ruined United States crawling with insatiable, infected cannibals? Find out.
