    "Great Fun and Listen but please...."

    cease the Fantasy elements....Terry Schott! Stay in SCi FI/Mystery/Thriller . Of course, all these are already written but while I love the story, characters (a lot now), story arc and performance it is fringing on a Fantasy book just like what the other reviewer said.
    Ready for more and I See that book 3 is going to be good. The 9 hours flew by

    "Downhill from the first book."

    Immature writing, no new innovative ideas introduced and really harped on the religious aspect. Last hr and a half was a chore to get through.

    "Didn't finish"

    I got through the first book, and enjoyed it some but the second book I actually regret buying. A little over halfway through I removed the download. Some parts were very interesting and others just were not and took up to much time for me. I would find myself distracted and not paying attention. Maybe it's partly because there are now gods, and greater power even in the real world. Tru is just looking like a second Jesus, it seems so unoriginal.

    "Great book, bugged by a few things"

    The book was great. The only issue I had was the positive light it brought on non science. Even though it was explained through as though virtual reality, it brought up pseudo science as real thing. Pseudoscience has no place in science fiction. That's fantasy.

    "Still great, but first one was better"

    Although not quite as good as the first one in the series, I enjoyed this one and again wanted more after the cliffhanger ending.

    "Book 2, still going strong."
    Where does Digital Heretic rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 20 (I read/listen to a lot of books)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Digital Heretic?

    The death of ... avoiding-spoiler-here ... a central character. SO didn't see that coming. Actually happened in the prior book, I believe.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    Brandon. Book 2 is showing him to have far greater depth (hence the next book being about HIM).


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It may be a game, but your life depends on it.

    Story
    "Went from plausible Sci-Fi to unrealistic"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Not really its not my job to change things. I guess it could have been longer but its still alright.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Digital Heretic?

    The moment when the book/series went from plausible sci-fi to super unlikely sci-fi. The first book had me thinking "This very well could be how the universe works" but this second book added in things that make it very unlikely. This kinda killed the series for me. I will probably listen to the other books but I am not itching to listen to the next one.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    All of them! Luke is such an amazing narrator. He is able to give characters a similar accent but still different enough for the listener to know what character it is.


    Could you see Digital Heretic being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Maybe a made for TV series but not anything special.


    Any additional comments?

    Luke Daniels is an amazing narrator even if the author is sloppy and rushing to finish a book.

    Story
    "A large step backwards."

    Really disappointed in this book. The first novel caught my attention and had me listening nonstop. I was very excited to continue this unique story. However, Digital Heretic just didn't follow up. With almost zero plot or character development this book seemed like a pure money grab. The conflicts that did arise seemed forced or made up on a whim. I just can't get behind a story where everything falls in place so easily, with no attention to existing plot details. Inventing a new character with superhuman powers?? Sure why not. Switching Danielle to be a completely dependent character rather than an outgoing leader. Sure why not. Just doesn't add up.

    The narration was the only thing keeping me going. Well done Luke Daniels for carrying an otherwise dismal few hours.

    "Fun and in line with my thinking"

    Luke is great at narration I love his character voices.
    The world created is easy to understand, the characters are interesting and the position of what's presented off of what we know is fun to play with.

    Story
    "Hold the Basil"

    Diverting enough story and Luke Daniels is his usual engaging self (though he loses a point for his cockney 'baddie' accent). My god though, the main character in this book is Basil Exposition. Every 10 minutes of so two characters have a conversation to lay out in explicit detail the inner workings of the game system that, given that it is the foundation of their society, they will have grown up understanding. NPCs for example.

    Apart from that, it is a decent telling of a well worn trope with some interesting add ons. Doesn't surprise and delight like an Iain M Banks but worth a listen.
