Publisher's Summary

Adam Harris’s name has just appeared on a top secret list of extraterrestrial origin. Unbeknownst to him, he’s one of a handful of individuals capable of implementing a Save Point, a static moment in time he’s able to revisit over and over upon death.

It’s a good thing, too. Brain cancer was turning into a real drag....

The government owns the list though, and they’ve wasted no time snapping him up. According to them, he has 13 days in an alien realm to learn as much as he can before the inevitable, at which point his memories, skill progressions, and weapon proficiencies will endure despite his body resetting.

Then it’s rinse and repeat.

But there are unwritten rules to the game he’s about to play, and unseen forces acting in judgment. 

Adam will have to learn the hard way that dying is the easiest thing he’s going to do today.

Wow talk about slow!

Slow moving story. MC was pretty annoying. Wasn't sure what to expect when I bought the book, but had hoped for a bit more.

Worldbuilding, growth, and great performance!

I could tell from the start that I was interested in this book, and that it was well-written. Unfortunately, it also opened up pretty immediately with the main character being a) unlikable and b) a horrendously cringe-inducing neckbeard. THANKFULLY, a) he does appear to develop in some positive directions in the latter half of the book and b) the portrayal of and interactions with a certain female character which made me grimace repeatedly took place all early on. I've gone through a few other books with one or the other issue, and make it a practice to give them a chance to improve- luckily in this case that happened.
By and large, I enjoyed the characters, the banter, and most of all the worldbuilding and the powers. I want more, and look forward to seeing how the final twist (it's a good one, and not just an abrupt gut-punch) plays out in future novels. I also finished the book hopeful that the main character won't stay a person who I instinctively dislike every time he opens his yap.

Will Watt does a strong job as lead narrator, and the rest of the cast does great jobs as well. My only complaint was that there are some sound effects thrown in, and they felt a bit haphazard. I only recall hearing one or two that I thought added to the narration, while the majority pulled me out of it because they necessitated a pause in the narration or just were so abrupt. They weren't pervasive, so I didn't consider it a major flaw, but by the same token...I think I'd have actually enjoyed the book more without any.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I didn’t care for it

Everything in the story is crafted for the main characters advancement. He makes a chain of stupid decisions that work out to be just what needed to be done. It feels like a made up story someone wrote instead of a character I am following.

Interesting

The mechanics of this novel are pretty unique. Narration was awesome. Only thing about this book was the main character felt a bit overconfident at times which leads to some gringe moments. He does have some growth as a character but it can a bit fast.
Good book overall and it will be interesting to see where it goes

Whaaaaaat?!?!?

That was awesome!

I received the book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Wow, super good! I have to admit that there were some parts that didn’t hit home with me, but only because it was references to things that I don’t really do like baseball. But those references were few and far between and the rest of it I loved! More more more!

I can't wait for more!!!

Fantastic story and top notch narration!

With terminal brain cancer, having been abducted by aliens, and thrust into a game world with the future of mankind on the line - the MC has a lot on his mind!

Fascinating game system and level progression!

This one is fun guys!

I cant wait for the next book in the series to come out!

Time to make something up

26 years old Adam Harris has only weeks to live: with a stage 4 brain tumour he'd retreated from the rest of the world - until kidnapped by agents to take part in a bizarre alien game to save humanity.
Full of immaginative, curious creatures, action and respawning, all told in the first person by Adam himself. Good, gory fun.

Narration was by Will M Watt, and Soundbooth Theatre - the main reason I selected this title as they always provide an excellent listening experience. This was no exception with the main narrator performing well with a pleasant on the ear voice and a good understanding of, and involvement in, the text, and occasional background sound effects. The only irritation was the awful Irish accent of Annie Elliccott performing Sabine.

My thanks to the rights holder of Save Point, who, at my request via Audiobook Boom, freely gifted me with a complimentary copy. Fun, silly, action filled story, well performed and recommended to readers who enjoy 'out manned, out gunned' gamer stories.

Horrible

I cant stress enough how arrogant, useless and idiotic the mc is. He does everything without thinking, doesnt listen to key info and is just bad at everything. I tried so hard to continue reading but I just cant continue, the mc runs the story

I really felt like I was there when listening to this book! The main character is one of those smart ass guys you can't help but root for. Looking forward to book 2

Middle of the road.

It’s not a bad book, it just didn’t do anything for me. Found it hard going and at no point did I get into it but I think that’s more a case of the book wasn’t what I was hoping it would be.

Anyway give it try.

Gripping from the start

The amount of sheer detail the author has put into this book. Just take the intro for example, the amount of detail put into describing his thoughts as he listened to the door being knocked then eventually broken down. I was hooked from the start. I dont like giving too much away in my reviews in case I spoil things so won't say any more story wise.

I Love LitRPGs, it's probably my favourite genre these days, and this is up there with some of my favourites now! Can't wait to listen to the other books in the series.

Kudos to the narrators - fantastic job well done, and the addition of sound effects really helped with immersion.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Narration and then some!

This was my first litRPG novel, I'm not a big gamer so wasn't sure what to expect, but I found it engaging and fun.
I like sci-fi, so thought I'd give it a listen and found myself pretty absorbed within a short space of time.

I really enjoyed the use of light sound effects throughout the narration. It added an extra element to draw you further into the story. The narrator was easy too listen to, and had a good handle on the text. The extra voices played from the other two narrators were great, not a full blown audio drama, but close enough for such a long runtime.

I received a copy free in agreement of an honest review.
