ignore the short read time

if you are like me then one od the first things you look at is how many hours the book is, since i go through them quick. I was put off by the seven hour runtime but got it anyways and let me tell you something.

its a 12-13 hour book in seven or so hours, it cuts out on flowery language, filler, overdrawn battle scenes and a massive setup for bow he gets into the other world. so if you want a lazy stroll with an extra few hours of random exposition, setting details and things this isn't for you.

if you want a likable asshole who thinks outside the box, curses like a sailor and a story that jogs rather than walls, get this.

I wish I didn't wait so long to give it a chance.

As far as game lit rpg books go. I have pasted being an avid listener and have accepted my fate as being an addict to listening to these books.

that being said. I have passed over this tittle so many times I cannot remember. the summary is awful. the reviews didn't provide any motivation one way or another.

let me put this out clearly. GET THIS BOOK or be a noob forever.

A nice change of pace

This was a pleasantly surprising addition to the LitRPG genre. While some of the usual tropes emerged, this was unique enough to stand apart. It was well written and lacked the crassness that often emerges in these stories.

The narration was an... unusual choice. It took some time to adapt to the deadpan narration but I grew to enjoy it and found that it fit well with the wry humor found throughout.

Another moron MC... somehow fails to ruin this LitRPG book.

I’m not sure what is so interesting to GameLit authors about MCs who are too stupid to live. Whenever I actually make it to the end of one of these books (which is exceedingly rare) it’s always because the rest of the story was good enough to make up for how frustrating the dolt of an MC was.

I never think to myself, “Wow, this book was so much more enjoyable because the MC’s actions make almost no sense... His inability to make reasonable decisions based on provided information made this audiobook a five star experience!!!”

Yeah. That never happens.

In a very few exceptional situations, I get to the end of an audiobook with a ding-dong for an MC and think, “Wow, in spite of being mildly to extremely annoyed the whole way through this book, I find myself still wanting to know what happens next.”

This is one of those unusual books. I will definitely be getting the next book in this series. I will just hope that the author puts some stat points in his own intelligence pool and drops the superfluous idiocy going forward.

Wow!

I am on book 6 of the series and all I can say is buy this book. And all the ones after it. Love the story, love the narrator, definitely worth listening to. The story is about a regular guy thrown into an RPG ish world. Not super technical but fun and funny. I was on the fence at first but now I can't get enough.

Like a serialized program

OK, so I went into this with low expectations. Honestly, the covers aren’t the best things to pull you in, they kind of look quick, cheap, and hooky. However, I do not let a crappy cover scare me off, nor do I let a good one sucker me into believing it is a great tale, but I will talk a bit more about covers in the show.

Anywho, I have to say that by the third chapter of this book I was utterly and completely enthralled. I was immediately sucked in. I loved the character, the world, the premise. The book hit every mark it was supposed to with me. First, and most importantly it got me into the game quickly. We didn’t go thirty five percent of the way in before hitting the game. It happens fairly early on. As in pretty much right out of the gate. That is how I prefer my LIT books, or any book to be. Get to the action, give me the exciting incident so I can enjoy the story. Ugland does just that. Secondly, the MC enters the game in a pretty cool and unique way. I especially liked how he could bring extra things in to the game for special perks. Third, we get to see that the MC isn’t perfect and does stupid things in spite of being smart. Now, I had heard that the MC is really dumb and it takes away the believability, but what I saw were a few instances of him not thinking his way completely through a problem and just relying on his abilities to get him out of danger. That’s most people. The rest I chalk up to naivete and inexperience. SO that issue gets a hard pass from me, I liked the way the MC handled things.

It honestly made me feel like I was reading about myself going into a game. I am a fairly intelligent person, but I do stupid things all the time, notably in social situations, and so I totally got the way the MC handled himself. Also, while the MC comes off as being OP it certainly doesn’t feel that way. At least not to me. I think there are some perks that the MC, Montana, lucked into and exploits in a standard way. The fact that he uses his OPness for some utterly cool events doesn’t hurt the readability of this book.

The best thing about this book, however, is that while it certainly is a sort of slice of life story it is a lot more. This feels like a serialized TV show, like Breaking Bad or Game of thrones, in which each episode is a nearly self contained tale, but actually leads right into the next book, and carries on the tale, going further into the over arching tale that is laid out. Seriously, I am not a huge fan of slice of life, but this does not carry that tone at all. Each book picks up right where the last left off and there is no time gap. So, like I said, it carries the feel of a single episode in a larger more planned out story. This is totally one of those Netflix and chill type of audiobooks, where you just want to binge listen to the entire series in just one go.

Now, not all is kosher in Ugland, sorry Eric bad pun, I know. I did have an issue in the first book where the stats and powers/character sheet was done over and over to a point it was like a well that Eric kept going to so as to boost a word count here and there, but as the series goes on it does peter out more and more until it becomes more manageable and less annoying.


Neil Hellegers keeps popping up in more and more Litrpg books lately, sometimes I am a fan, other times I think he just does ok. This is a fella for whom the material matters. For example, he was perfect in the Great Filter until the last chapter and then didn’t fit so well. Not his fault, Just the way it panned out, but here he just kills. He is meant to play Montana the barbarian, and he does it well. This match, his voice and this story, is a rare melding of narrator and author but more importantly, narrator and character. It reminds me of how Jeff Hays and Quantum Hughes are made for one another.

8.5 stars I loved this book.

Redemption LITRPG

Good story, i was pretty surprised by how well it was done. The start was different and a bit confusing (got more cleared up later). overall it's a redemption story of a "Bad guy" in a previous difficult situation, trying to start over in a different world. pS. main character is a bit OP.

Different while being familiar

While a lot of these types of "going to another world that's game-like" books feel too similar after awhile and they ran its course for me for a bit, I decided to give this a try and I have already bought the rest in the series and per-ordered the latest audible book coming out soon. Narrator has a nice voice and reads far better than a lot of the Siri-sounding voices out there. Story line is interesting and one of the things I do detest about these types of books is the reading of their stats at the end of every chapter, this one does not, while it may at time feel like it, it is on the conservative side on reading their stats every 5 seconds.

good book

Just ignore the stupidity near the beginning and it is a pretty good book. If you like OP characters that still have things they aren't good at, the you'll love this.

A decent point to note: if you don't want your character to have certain items, then just don't give them the items in the first place. Having the character lose them to an obviously stupid decision, which is made even worse by not understanding a simple task, is irritating to me as a reader.

Well done novel and audio execution

The audio kept me entertained and wanting more, the narrator did a wonderful job at character voicing and pacing. The story was well done and flowed nicely, my only issues were a few repetitions where the MC was told the same thing about the game system by different people and didn’t know the issue each time. A few things forgotten along the way can be overlooked as the plot worked well.

If your really into litsrpg's it's an ok read

I have read the whole series so far and it has quite a few problems like there are many unexplained plot holes, the MC has abilities that he never uses that would be extremely useful eg he can demand a truthful answer once a day and never used it once in the books and constant use of the trope wear the mc gets op by killing a big monster that he shouldn't be able to, so he gets a shit ton of XP which makes him op. Otherwise, it's a fun book with interesting charterers just a bit slow for my taste.
