Publisher's Summary

In the world of Re:Fuze, anything is possible. Fortunes can be made, and the unlikeliest of people can find glory in a land of swords and magic.

With low Job Qualification (JQ) scores and two years of national service looming, Eric Templeton knows he is doomed to a life of poverty. When he is given a chance to enter the game, he knows he has the opportunity to save his family from their desperate situation.

But when he enters the game, Eric isn't spawned into the newbie camp of Blundow. Instead he is sent to the darkest regions of the map, filled with creatures beyond his level. He stumbles across a conspiracy that no newbie should ever see, and he knows that he can't hope to survive.

Terrible story can't be overcome by decent narration

This LitRPG is horrible. The main character is and his family are idiotic and deserve most of what bad things come their way. The main character makes stupid choices that turn out better than they should due to his sense of self-righteousness. The economy and politics of the world the author created make no sense. It is a stupider version of every dystopic young adult novel that panders to people's sense of resentment. That can work but it is so crass and poorly handled in this that it just annoys you. The villains make no sense. The protagonist makes little sense. His family is a bunch of idiots who insist that they are smarter than society will admit except their every action proves that they are idiots.

Piss poor character plot and logic.

Ridiculously short 1st book of a serie. A main character convinced he is intelligent and kind. But really as dumb as a rock and hold grudges against everyone. Supposely grew up poor, had other take advantage, and lord themselves over him. But he is surprised when he is abused or take advantage of... then spends forever internally threatening every slight. So the main character is a weak willed, stupid, loser.... Waste of a book. I hope the loser dies...

Uber Short

Was unpleasantly surprised at how short this was. At 2 hours, it doesn't even qualify as the first act. Just enough to get you interested...then done.

Short and sweet

Overall I enjoyed this book. Only problem is that it was too short. Sort of left you hanging waiting for more.

Has been done before better

What would have made Difficulty: Legendary better?

To make this book better a story line to follow the introduction. As it is i feel like I have read this before some where else. The cost vs length of the book is another issue, as better books have given me four to five times the value at the same cost. I do like te performance of Guy Williams and look forward to his work in the future.

What do you think your next listen will be?

The phantom castle or Split the Party

Which scene was your favorite?

fighting the goblin King

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Extremely unrealistic issues

The situations and solutions in this book defy credulity. An example a game account costing as much as say a new car, the MC is launched into the game not in a starting zone at lvl 0 into a lvl 75 plus zone dying instantly and with the gaming company acknowledging the error seems to think it’s ok to take the new car worth of credits for 15 min of game play. The way the MC gets back in the game is something no one in their right mind would do.

Good intro to online rpg and litrpg

Janus finally makes it out of the newb zone in this drawn out version of rpg fantasy. progress is agonizingly slow in this story for veteran readers. recommend only as an introduction story to litrpg writing.

A good introduction for a series appealing to us

Any additional comments?

It is a fantasy story for the computer generations. More than Tron, this has a lot of potential for a good series. Waiting for a love interest to complete the adventure/romantic story.

short and sad

the storyline was surprisingly upsetting and a bit depressing but there were still some good Elements which might have worked if it wasn't such a short book

Terrible

This book is a litRPG with the main character practically knowing nothing about gaming.
In the staring zone he gets mob kills stolen from him and pick pocketed. In response, he leaves the starting zone where he previously lost a previous toon in under 10 min. Surprise surprise, he gets jumped again.

rubbish

not worth the time it took to download. a step by step account of an idiotic newbie playing Warcraft type game. no humour or clever prose, just almost gameplay emulated drivel with a hint of storyline direction that in no way captures you.

Could not empathize with a character who kept on making dumb decisions

Had potential but could not empathize with a character who is supposed to be smart but kept on making dumb decisions. By 2/3rd of the way through this book I want the hero to die. His decision Making was so painfully unrealistic.
