Publisher's Summary

No matter how many times you die, it still sucks.

For Hudson, the virtual world of PrimeVerse isn't all bad. It's beautiful; much nicer than overpopulated Earth. It almost feels like a vacation except for the volatile wildlife, lack of any amenities, and - oh yeah - the inability to log out.

Exploring the world, learning his class, and leveling skills is all fun and games until a powerful rogue player with a vendetta shows up to wipe out Hudson and his primitive tribe. Thrust into a conflict he didn't create, Hudson is forced into a cycle of respawning where he learns that even death can be used as a tool. So much for that vacation.

It's not like he signed up for this. Or even went willingly. but when life hands you lemons...use them to kill the dog-size spiders that are trying to eat your face.

One of the worst MC's ever.

I am not thrilled about the new trend of having idiots that make the same mistakes over and over and over as the main character in books like these. its unenjoyable.

Great potential

So this series has great potential but the story does have a few issues. For example when they are worried about being wiped out why don’t they just all quit the tribe of the mc so his class does not get reset? Now to be clear I enjoyed the story that’s just an example of a question I had. I’m looking forward to when the world gets more advanced.

Such a fun book!

I have read a lot of LitRPG and, listened to a bunch as well, this book stands out as just plain fun, with humor laced through it! It's a unique setting, no NPCs or cities or anything exist yet, the players have to do it all. The 'system' is great also, familiar enough to easily understand, but also different enough to feel unique. I don't want to give any spoilers, but the system makes it so players aren't stuck in whatever class, so they can try out everything eventually. The plot was fast paced, and had some great twists that I didn't expect. There are a lot of moments that made me feel like "what if they did this, or that" which is great because it kept me thinking about the world as a whole. The narration was REALLY well done, and made it a pleasure to listen to. All in all, if you are looking for a book that is just plain FUN, I recommend this one. I am looking forward to more in this series!

almost 3 stars

yes it's a decent story that really drags and the main character can be really dumb and his friends are dumb and the bad guys are smart and crazy.

Excellent and original!

I love this book! I'm pretty new to LitRPG but PrimeVerse: Forced Login really impressed me. I liked the characters, except the ones you're not supposed to like, I loved the setting and system, and I appreciated the originality. I look forward to the sequel.

hello captain obvious

I was excited when I bought this book. I was hoping for a smart litrpg and you sorta get this in this book. but the problems in this book are so obvious to solve but not one character thinks of them. an example of this is the main characters are fighting zombies hand to hand. Wich is stupid when he could pick up a stick or make a club which he has the skills to do. another one is the mc throws rocks at zombies he has access to rabbit leather why not make a sling to launch rocks and make a bag to keep them in but not one character in this book thinks about crafting. this game has crafting classes please use them. besides the obvious solution to problems this book is good I love the class system and it's progressing system. the character are pretty well done.

I dont usually write reviews

This series is kind of a sleeper, a hidden gem. I really enjoyed listening to it. it is a Litrpg story however the Main Character (MC) is just a normal guy. he isn't over powered in the least. he is forced to use his head and figure out things each step of the way. Sure he gets a few unique skills that definitely help him out but they aren't game changers or even powerful in the long term of character development. If you enjoy watching characters grow and even fail at times, I highly recommend this book. It is well worth your time. The narrator knocked it out of the park, he really brings the story to life.

Great book. Epilogue ruins it.

I have really enjoyed this book start to finish. The characters are great and I enjoy the story line. The one thing that has ruined it for me is the epilogue. I'm sorry to say but the way the female character has been built up for the next book has put me off buying the next book/audiobook sorry.

The main character doesn't fit the story.

This review has minor spoilers, you were warned. I really like some of the ideas this book used but it seems as if the author wanted to mix too many things together. The MC gets a non combat class, a treasure hunter that by all means would be perfect if this book was about solving puzzles or even just a LITrpg ripoff of Indiana Jones series and not a primal earth, combat focused story it is. Don't get me wrong I like the idea of a game that's in such setting but it would have been so much more interesting if the main character actually suited the setting. This could have been a tribe-war kind of a story, survival story or even city building one but in the end it became what it is now. By that I don't mean it is a bad book as it can be really interesting, but it can also be a slog to go through especially when you have the MC, Hudson trying to do things so out of character (like fighting) and then complaining that he isn't good at them and I as the listener was just sitting there and going "Wow, who would have expected that a treasure hunter isn't exactly a combat master". Besides that I liked the Arcon (if that's how you write it) theme, putting gods in a story can often backfire but from what I've seen up till now it's good. As long as it doesn't go the Gods sending their avatars everywhere/Holy War and crazy church/cult route it's going to be fine. The narrator did a very good job, he wasn't monotone and the voices he made were different enough, one minor thing is that sometimes he made the MC sound really whinny and that really grinned on my nerves. One last thing, in my opinion everything that happened after the fight with Tim was bad, the reactions of the tribe, the decision Hudson made, it kinda feels like most of the story was for nothing. To conclude this review, this book was Ok, not more, not less. If you have a number of books you want to listen to I would advice to check what are opinions on all of them, cause this one here wouldn't be my first pick. It also wouldn't be the last cause there are definitely worse books out there. This one would be somewhere in the middle and sooner or late you can give it a try. One thing that can really help out here is book 2 if it comes out but the author needs to figure out what kind of story he wants and then make the character fit in a bit more.

A Solid, Fun Adventure for Everyone

While the setup takes place in a dark future, the story itself was a fairly upbeat affair, and was simply a delight to listen to. I legitimately had a great time with PrimeVerse: Forced Login. Was a solid story, and the world R.K. Billiau has put together has enough of the known to feel familiar and safe, while also adding some new mechanics to spice up the story. As for the narrator: Eric did a great job - to me, there was the odd occasion where he had Hudson (the protagonist) sound a bit more whiny than I thought the words were expressing, but overall he was perfect for the book. The main cast of characters all have well shown personalities, and I was impressed with how quickly one of the characters was able to go from kind of annoying, in a situationally understandable way, to downright insufferable, in a well written manner. I liked the way the various groups bounced off each other, and while there was the occasional moment of 'I wish Hudson had done xyz', the story almost always gave solid reasons for what he did, or had him chose the 'if I, the gamer-reader was in this situation, then I'd do THIS', which was nice, and left me feeling like the overall situations were more natural than stories where you're constantly annoyed at how stupid the characters are being are for doing obviously dumb things. By the end, I felt I'd had a great time. The PrimeVerse is ripe for more adventures, and I'm excited to see it be fleshed out beyond the events in this starting valley. Can't wait for Book 2 - hope the audiobook comes out just as quickly :)
