Publisher's Summary

"Action-packed and entertaining." (Onlinebookclub.org) 

Josh Ridley is an overworked, underappreciated accountant caught up in life’s grind. All that changes when he is offered an adventure vacation that allows him to be miniaturized and placed in an unforgiving terrain filled with demons and demon lords, or to laymen...killer insects. 

In Betaloome, an infested terrarium with a land area equivalent to hundreds of square miles, Josh’s new god-like abilities make him adored by women, admired by men, and able to slay monsters. 

After the initial buzz of his trip dies down, Josh must choose to return to his safe life, or risk everything to help a foreign people.

Decent narrator

The narrator did a decent job however the story was lacking. The mc was not really relatable and he fell short as a hero.

Think ant man meets LITRPG

So imagine having your consciousness downloaded into a body as small as ant-man. You have the same muscle mass density strength etc but in a tiny package....now have that body in a world that is basically a fantasy version of honey I shrunk the kids. The whole society is that small scale, you are a god to them, spiders and ants, mantises etc are like Demons to them...add into that a prior person who stayed there permanently as a god among men is a disgusting tyrant. Can you make a difference? Should you even try or just enjoy yourself? Can you afford to find away to come back when your time is up? Should you? Penalty could be death as it’s a one way return ticket if you come back...a great story awesome insectoid vs man battles etc. very well written and narrated.

Not bad

This story had a good idea and pulls through for the most part. My main issue is his flip flopping between an ego driven fighter and whiney kinda protector, most of the time it was ok but certain instances were a bit annoying. the performed was ok, he really needs to work on differentiating voices for the characters.

could use some improvement

The narrator does a pretty good job ,does need some work on not sounding monotone with each character a bit, still skilled though. The story has some interesting elements but the character just wasn't the best he had some redeeming qualities though. they got arrogant fast and just did not seem to have ability to ask questions that would be helpful. The book is wish fulfillment for male fantasies It is something to pass the the time. It wasn't up my alley but others may enjoy it,

An Enjoyable Adventure

I found this story interesting and different from other books I have read, it was well narrated and it held my interest until the end. Like the previous reviewer I did not like the way the main character Josh Ridley's personality changed once he arrived in Betaloome. Another positive was the good humour of the book, it did make me smile several times. Overall a good book which is worth a listen.
