Publisher's Summary

Austin Zane leaves behind his CEO position with RB Corp to play Dave, a half-dwarf in the virtual reality game Emerilia, trying to escape his life.

What Dave doesn't know is that Earth as he knows it is really a virtual reality simulation and Emerilia is a world imbued with futuristic technologies to mimic early MMORPGs.

He just wanted peace and quiet, to build a house, do some fishing, to take some time to find himself once again. What he found out instead was a cause, he found out the biggest lie of his life. He found out the truth about Emerilia and the lies of Earth.

What's the best way to control slaves? Make them think that they're free.

    "For everyone that like MMORPGS or RPGS / EVERYONE"
    If you could sum up The Trapped Mind Project in three words, what would they be?

    Some people say that this book doesn't have much action, but that not really true. there's enough action and romance as well, but that thing that matters the most for us MMORPGS and RPGS lovers and almost all people, is the way our main character grows stronger the way he levels up not just in levels but understanding and strengths. great book MUST READ and or LISTEN.

    "loved it!!!"

    I rarely write reviews but this book had me locked in for the ride. got so good I ordered the others on my kindle. can't wait for it to be published on audible...the only down side is because so much happens in this world some of the books don't move character progression as far as I would like. otherwise stunning book series.

    "best litrpg I have heard so far."

    I was sceptical because I hadn't heard of the author or narrator. I was blown away by both. if you are hesitant I can definitely recommend dropping a credit for this one it has a permanent home in my library.

    I was not given this book for free nor was I paid or asked to submit this or any other review.

    "Overall, not bad."

    A good twist on a lit RPG. A little slow starting out but it ended well and had great narration. The more you listen to it, the more it grows on you. I'm definitely getting the next book. I place it just above way of the shaman, but not as good as pay to play. Most of the action isn't until the end though so you have to be able to enjoy a less action-oriented character progression for the first half of the book.

    "Awesome beginning"

    This was a awesome story and now has me hooked on the series. i will definetly be reffering people to this book.

    The only downfall in this is that there isn't more audiobook out and i haven't heard if more will be coming. If there is going to be more i will update this.

    "So long, but so worth it!"

    This series has been on my list for some time, but my actual reading time is so limited. When it came to audio I was super happy.

    Michael is a complete wiz at weaving stories in and around characters that have amazing depth and motivation.

    What starts off pretty slow build till you actually can't stop listening... there's good back story woven in, crafting (a must for anyone who loves litrpg) and intense action.

    The 18 hours totally whizzed past me, and I wanted more. I know this series is a huge one, and I seriously hope that Tristan keeps with it because he was a great choice as far as voice and tone go. I'd not listened to Tristan before, but the tone and voices he had for each character, especially Dave were great. The sarcastic and then funny side to him just had me laughing while driving. Some parts I literally was on the edge of my seat. A total joy to the ears, and it made the book go so much quicker. I believe Michael and Tristan nailed this one, and I'm so excited for more.

    Now for some deeper thoughts.

    As I said the plot itself was slow to get going, I do admit that there were some word choices and lengthy sentences that even made me think twice about the meaning, but it really didn't detract from the story.

    Dave is a very interesting character, from a big company to the game he wants to play it's totally opposite to his usual life and it's relaxing and interesting. The game mechanics aren't hard to follow and they develop nicely along the way, of course, there are some huge things for Dave to learn and to develop but he does so at a good pace. It's not over the top for me even though he does develop some interesting items and skills.

    Overall this is good start to a series of over 7 books and I do believe he has more on the go! the man is insane.... can't wait for the next one on audio :)

    Story
    "Just plain bad"

    Great premise, but it's so badly written...
    Whole paragraphs seem to have been ripped from Aleron Kong's Chaos Seed books, without understanding why he wrote then in the first place.
    Just a pale imitation.
    Avoid!
    Can I get my money back!!!
