Publisher's Summary

Walt and Oz need to level up to survive and every moment is going to hurt.

Walter LePointe and Oswald Blackwell just woke up inside of the online role playing game Realms of Th'loria. With no memory of how they arrived, Walt and Oz soon learn the hard way that living in an epic fantasy world isn't all it's cracked up to be. As level one characters with no skills or experience, nothing can prepare them for their new lives as they prepare to enter the realm.

Pretty good with just one big annoyance

Overall this book is pretty good. Kinda a standard litrpg but the characters are pretty original, if not a little weebo, but whatever. There are three people the work at the game company they test the new gear at a party. I like the characters and they have original dialogue.
Now the only thing that really ruffled my feathers was his choice of weapon. Now I know books like these like to be unique and no one wants to use a standard long sword. But there is synergy in weapons or atleast the weapon matches the user. This guy is a mage.. a kinda flabby one. yet he chooses a mace for little other reason then well thats what I arbitrarily picked up so I guess ill just keep using this hunk of crap. Id get it if he was a fire mage and used arrows or a wind mage and a rapier to cast haste or a dark mage with a dagger. But a mace with a guy that has long range attacks and has the physical stamina of an 11 year old girl...theres my piece.
Aside from that rant this is actually a good book and worth getting into; especially after the latter books come out.

Addictive! Fun! Great story.

I received an ARC of this audio book. I loved it! Imagine playing your favorite video game. Now imagine reading your favorite book. This book combines the two so realistically that you feel yourself excited when the characters level up, and anxious when their HP goes down. Such great character and world building, that even non gamers should enjoy, especially if you like sarcastic banter and realistic monsters, and a mystery. It's all here with great narration as well. Love a good listen so I can work on a jigsaw puzzle at the same time.

Man o man

I’d never heard of this genre before, and I couldn’t have picked a better book to start with. The characters were great the plot was excellent and as s gamer I thought the mechanics and they were explained was cool.

A good litrpg

This is a well thought out story that has some nice humor and descent character development. I look forward to the second book in the series and seeing what happens next

The ending threw me for a loop!

I really got into this story even though the LitRPG genre is not really my thing, this one was really good. It had some great aspects to it and a great cliffhanger I didn't see coming. Felt like I was playing Skyrim during parts of it and I really cared what happened to the characters my favorite was the dwarf...who is not what he first appears to be. Check it out for yourself well worth the credit!

couldn't finish

the main character was a whiny idiot who couldn't do anything right and constantly got in to trouble and not In a good way. the story was dull and not vary interesting. Todd menesses is a good narrator and I think he did a good job with the characters but I just couldn't get in to it .

better than Sword Art Online

The first two chapters I was a little iffy I was thinking it was going to be something like a old school Dungeons & Dragons but realized very quickly that it it was so much more.
the only drawback of this book while listening to it it made me itch to reinstall Everquest 2 or Guild Wars 2 to play as I was enjoying the book.
This this book has made me itching for more I will stay tuned for the next chapters in the series and hope the Adventure Continues on.

Good narration, decent story.

Any additional comments?

Good narration.

Good world building and pacing.

I would have enjoyed it more had the MC not been a complete idiot. At so many points I was left annoyed at his sheer obliviousness to make the choices I would expect of the experienced gamer he was written to be.

Mistakes I can understand. But... damn. Don't be stupid.

Other than that though, enjoyable.
