Awesome!

How would I describe this series? In a word ... AWESOME! This collection includes the first three books of an awesome, action packed LitRPG series. The story is wild and complex and a total blast. Quantum Hughes, the main character of the series, is a wisecracking badass. The first book takes place in dark noir VR murder world, think the Matrix on steroids. Book two continues the story but this time the majority of the action shifts to a very cool steampunk word. And book three transports us to a more traditional fantasy world. I'd be hard pressed to say which book I liked best, as they all roll one into the other into a continuous epic tale. Give it a try and I'm sure you'll get sucked into the Loop! Can't recommend this series strong enough, and can't wait to see what happens next.

This set of book is narrated by Jeff Hays, who has become one of my favorite narrators. His vocal talents bring the characters and world to life. While Jeff narrates multiple genres, I've actually come to identify the sound of his voice (voices actually given how he manages to give every character their own distinct voice) with the LitRPG genre, to the point that even when I'm reading a LitRPG novel I hear his voice(s) in my head.

Like you games with a little bit of noir flair

Damn, This book set is a wild ride. Filled with wit, chaos, and a little bit of the ultra-violence! Not a lot of narrators could pull this off but its another shining example of both Harmon Cooper and Jeff Hayes!

Wow. Loved it.

Great boxed set. Want to hear the next three. The story is wonderful and interesting, with characters you want to follow. Keep up the great writing. I received this audio book for free at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

Great series

This is an Omnibus that contains the first 3 books in the series, as of this review. There are 7, but only the first 3 are on Audible. The next 3 are coming shortly. It is a great take on the LITRPG genre. Each world has its own genre and the characters are able to travel among them which helps to keep things fresh and interesting. The characters are likeable and the story moves at a great steady pace. Each book is short, but they have their own ending and as a whole provide a lot of story, RPG action and fun. Narration is great, each character has their own voice.

A fun read!

After an experiment gone wrong quantum the main character gets trapped repeating the same day in the virtual world.
He must figure out how and why this has happened, and how to stop it from continuing. Great listen was like a movie.

Another great listen

Jeff does a great job as always bringing the characters to life. The plot is compelling as the character suffers memory loss and is often discovering things as we are. We find out and learn about this tale as he does. it is a tale of revenge, betrayal, and redemption. I have read through the whole series released and it is really satisfying to see the character slowly but surely grow. Some authors unrealistically rush character growth as if a person can literally change overnight, but quantum learns little lessons here and there and even stumbles along the way. Love the series as a whole. it has great action, great humor, and love the little pop culture references hidden every so often.

not for me

cool story. im glad all 3 we sold as one. zero character growth. he is a jerk throughout all 3 books. Are there more books coming because it was weird how little time they spent in the fantasy world since it was called high fantasy. I don't think this book was bad but it wasn't for me.

Good, but I don't really like the protagonist

Struggled to finish because of something the main character did that made him 10 times more of a tool then he is in most of the book. Won't be buying such short books to finish the series unless another 3pack comes out.

Couldn’t stop laughing

I just wandered across this book a few days ago. Couldn’t put it down. Sandman Slim meets Ready Player One. Hilarious!

A mix of noir, steampunk and fantasy!

Harmon Cooper adds to the "on the rise" genre of LITRPG with The Feedback Loop series. The Protagonist is Quantum Hughes. The series starts off with him stuck in a virtual world which he calls "The Loop" because every day is the same. He is also the only actual person in this virtual reality world for the past two years, so when another actual person appears it throws Quantum's "life" into a tailspin.

This series is highly entertaining if you are into this new Genre. If you are new to LITRPG then this would be a good introduction. Each novel is fairly short but full of humor, action, and adventure!

The only thing I found lacking with this story is that there does not seem to be enough consequences for Quantum's violent behaviors, and so far there has been no progression of character to learn to handle his anger issues. These are parts of his character but I feel that there was not enough growth for him to overcome these behaviors which should be hampering him in a civilized society.

Jeff Hayes does a great job narrating and bringing the characters in this story to life. There are some effects used on his voice that is done in moderation and only serve to enhance the experience.

** I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review **
