Publisher's Summary

The car crash was the last thing I remembered...then I woke up here. Where "here" was felt like an impossible nightmare. I died, but this wasn't what I'd expected to find when they said I'd meet my maker. 

The afterlife is just like a video game, except I didn't start in a noob world like everybody else. I started out on one of the most challenging dungeon worlds meant only for ancient souls who've been dead much longer than I have....

Welcome to Epoc. 

I don't have the right stats for this place, not even a little bit. I'm in complete noob gear with the standard human sword and shield. I don't even have any crafting skills to make a decent breakfast with the high tier ingredients in this place. 

Dying in the afterlife is even worse than dying on Earth. Earth, you only die once, but here, you can die over and over again and each one is just as miserable as the last. 

There's only one way I can survive the cycle, one way to stay sane. 

I need a power leveler...and fast.

I think I am missing something.

The premise of the book had me paint a very different picture of what the book is actually about. I bought it thinking we would see the struggle of someone being in a high level area while they themselves are not. I imagined ingenious solutions to massive problems. Maybe helped by a gimmick that would hurt as much as it helped.

However we got something different, not bad, just different. Instead he is power leveled within a couple of chapters. His gimmick is something several people want. He is chased by gamemasters which seem to be something like mods or GMs in Blizzard. Except they don't have special powers that differentiate then from standard players beyond deleting players completely. We are introduced to 3 types and they all seem equally insignificant. There is a lot of tell and not a lot of showing us they are strong and different from the normal users.

With Neil being a nonstandard MC, being over 50 and not a gamer I was hoping this would lead to some interesting issues. Instead you could take the cookie cutter 20 year old MC and plop them in instead and nothing would change.

Travis Baldree was Travis Baldree, a very talented narrator and one of the reasons I got this book. He does what he does and if you've heard him before you know how this is narrated.

In short, I feel liked I missed something while listening to this book. The synopsis feels like it was written for a different book.

code this code that

The story follows some old dude who is revived as a young dude, and all he does is cry and whine, countless monologs that say the same things more or less, AND he act like a stubborn child who thinks they're in charge of everything. When the going get tough he literally is wearing plot armor.

I really wanted to like this book, but the authors

I really wanted to like this book, but the authors, i can't think of a better word then lack of intelligence and knowledge just ruined it for me. This guy just isn't very sharp. Maybe instead of intelligence, Craft would be a better word... unskilled...

First technically, it's very clear that as far as the author understands "the code" is a black box where magic happens, as a techie, I'm used to people who don't know the first thing about technology writing about it in litrpgs, but this one was truly truly bad, and constant.

so i was preannoyed, but when they couldn't keep continuity within a paragraph, I was done.

To parphrase.

"All shadowmagic covers eventually grows to cover groups"

A few sentences later, "Oh my <max level> shadowmagic doesn't cover groups, you'll have to use his"

Argh!

The story overall was pretty entertaining and Travis Baldree did a great job of reading it (which was why I gambled on a book with less than 500 reviews, which was a mistake.) But the constant jarring references to "the code" in ways that made no sense, but tried to explain it to me, constantly...ugh (couldn't they have used "the system" or "the game" instead, or "the magic" since that's clearly how they think code works?) and the inability to keep their own world building straight on the same page, just diminished the writer in my eyes, till I just couldn't finish it.
