Publisher's Summary

The year is 2245, and the world has undergone explosive growth in multiple industries. The age of Virtual Reality came long ago, opening up new fields for people to enjoy and seek employment. There were even those that chose to sacrifice their physical bodies, becoming digital existences that lived within Internet communities.

But with the age of VR, everyone still dreamed of that next step, the next level of adventure. And after 100 years, it has finally arrived. The first consoles, known as Seeds, are mass distributed among the people, with such realism that they no longer qualified as a Virtual Reality, but as an Artificial Reality. But what happens when things become too real?

    Story
    "Litrpg"

    Pretty standard Litrpg, though I felt it had better flow than most.
    I did like that the protagonist doesn't seem to be above and beyond others.
    no romance. not high in drama. not a lot of conversations.
    action adventure, decent descriptive detail.
    I did get caught up in this story.
    if you are looking for Litrpg type story, with the protagonist doing a lot of grinding this is for you.
    if your looking for a romance, drama or suspense... probably not what you want.

    "All game mechanics, no story"

    Two hours in, I have to stop. It's all game mechanics, no story. Kept waiting for an actual story, with actual characters, to start, but I'm having to draw the line.

    Story
    "Could Be Better"
    If you could sum up World Seed: Game Start in three words, what would they be?

    I feel like this whole book was just a preface for the rest of there series. There are really no consistent protagonist. Only in the last few chapters did any intrigue finally show up. I felt like this story reads more as a diary and less as a story.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Give it a villain/corporation that the main charter is growing to battle.


    Any additional comments?

    It is not a bad start to a series, but it really left a lot to be desired. I think that the author has a lot more to give as everything is very detailed and imaginative. I just feel like the meat of the story was missing.

    "Boring!"

    Only made it half way thru. Nothing happens, all he does is train his 100 different powers. Maybe it picks up in the later half but I'm not willing to suffer anymore of this.

    "Boring and Lacks Originality"

    It is a truly boring book that is not original. It was tough to finish and was like listening to a user manual.

    "Ugh, just why?"

    If I wanted to play am rpg I would. I wouldn't read about someone else playing one. This book has a good premise but it falls short on so many levels. Wouldn't even recommend this to someone if they could borrow it from a friend for free.

    Story
    "GRIIIIIND. GRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIND... Whatever..."

    This story turned out to be one giant grind, to use the gaming term. The setting is interesting but it's just the account of some guy playing a game. There is a world changing event happening in the background but the protagonist seems to be "meh." about it and goes on playing his game despite the fact his body had been transformed in the real world. No depth to the story at all but still something to turn your brain off and listen to.
