Catching up some more, but heck, I really did get through a lot, and not write them up, the joy of audiobook proofiing as soon as you get off from work. 🙂 loved the jobs, but I’m behind with all my regular stuff. haah
This was one of my fav’s in the last few weeks. Sci Fi and Gaming, you can’t go wrong. The length was decent, and the characters very interesting.
Of course, this one has to be in my top fav of the genre. Nick Podehl is an amazing narrator and I’ve got a few of his books.
So this wasn’t a bad place to start with for SciFi Litrpg.
I really wasn’t disappointed. —- some spoilers
Alan and his AI are great characters, it seems from the very start he’s almost been set up for something great, even if he can’t believe it. The initial pod and investment for him to enter the game and then the progression through it seemed very over-priced especially as we learn more of what things cost in his world and the game.
What I really enjoyed was the banter between Alan and the AI, she had a great voice, and her concern to protect him really did come across in all the right ways. Where she merges with an AI from another ship, I was concerned over this, mostly because of any ramifications in Alan’s objective but everything seemed to go okay.
For those who love gaming, and SciFi this is a perfect set up for so many more adventures. I just hope that the translation and then the new audiobook is out soon, I really can’t wait for the next one.
I do also think that because this is to me a hard litrpg there are a lot of stats, lots of info and at times these can be hard to listen to, kinda wanted to skip a few, but they were what they were. I’d be interested in a whispersync where I could see the text as well as listen to it, but thery’re not easy with stat screens either, sigh.
Thanks to you both, awesome job and when’s the next!
