The author uses known scifi elements like Gravity plating And does not set up the Science behind it . The military procedures are not super in depthBut otherwise pretty good military scifi, there are times the author would glaze over What I imagined to be a Difficult explanation of circumstances For example , Without giving anything away He would explain going up a mountain In detail but then skimp on how they got Down . its otherwise still very entertaining . if you like your books more in depth it might be a little short in that aspect. I still plan on getting the next book. Please forgive any syntax errors I'm texting while driving don't tell anyone

Threadbare has not had a very good time of it recently. His little girl has been taken from him, and he must travel the kingdom, finding allies old and new, living and dead, to help him rescue Celia. Fortunately, he's got a voice now and access to all those fun skills he couldn't before use. He may only be a very small teddy bear, but he's got the persistence to plow through dungeons of rascally raccoon monsters, the wiles to turn a town full of undead on its ear, and the sanity to survive an encounter with a mediocre old one.

minor spoiler of sorts

Meet Threadbare. He is 12 inches tall, full of fluff, and really, really bad at being a hero. Magically animated and discarded by his maker as a failed experiment, he is saved by a little girl. But she's got problems of her own, and he might not be able to help her. Fortunately for the little golem, he's quick to find allies, learn skills, gain levels, and survive horrible predicaments. Which is good, because his creator has a whole lot of enemies …

I was soooooo wrong. I am becoming a fan of the litrpg style of books and this is a refreshing entry to the genre in my opinon. excellent performance. well written. if I had a criticism it would be that the overall tone of the narrator doesn't get SHOCKED when things are shocking. it is a tool to better get inside the protagonists point of view, but while listening I would sometimes literally say out loud "wtf was that". don't get me wrong it is a brilliant way of story telling mucho kudos to the narrator, I was just sometimes lost to the gravitas of the situation or turn of events (I am also driving as I listen so I am probably just suffering from my attention being divided). that said, still give full recommendation to purchase. fun, funny, cute, brutal, rough, whimsical heart warming all at the same time. enjoy

Stephen Leeds is perfectly sane. It's his hallucinations who are mad. A genius of unrivaled aptitude, Stephen can learn any new skill, vocation, or art in a matter of hours. However, to contain all of this, his mind creates hallucinatory people - Stephen calls them aspects - to hold and manifest the information. Wherever he goes, he is joined by a team of imaginary experts to give advice, interpretation, and explanation. He uses them to solve problems...for a price. Then a company hires him to recover stolen property - a camera that can allegedly take pictures of the past....

can it be a compendium with only 3 entries? I digress, I would easily have listened to many more hours spun from Sanderson. fans of his know he has the capability of writing long epics. this was the first shorter story I've enjoyed of his work. it was a well crafted story. for the hardcore science fiction fans who want to know what kind of transistor they used to do that thing they did ... not in this series. the brief forays into science are more like Mary Shelly's its alive moment (the book not any of the movies based on it). I enjoyed the characters being as fleshed out as they needed to be without ever feeling something was missing as well as the pacing. I didn't feel rushed to a plot point for the comparative length.
the performance was EXCELLENT I am going to look for more by this narrator, I put him up there in no particular order with rc bray and nick podehl.
in the end I would definitely buy this book again, enjoy

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.
