AudioBook Review – Gam3

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.

“Excellent LitRPG”

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!

AudioBook Review – Star Alliance

This was easy to pick after the ending on the last!

Review as follows 🙂 this was an excellent book, I can’t wait for the next one. Do hurry up guys!

Star Alliance: Ascension, Book 3 | [Ken Lozito]

“Loved it!”

I put this on straight after the second book and it didn’t disappoint. (after reading some reviews about the books not being worth a credit) I honestly have to say ‘what’ ? Do you guys have any idea what goes into writing something like this, let alone the audio production!

So for a credit, yes this series is well worth spending it on. Don’t let the others put you off.

This part of the series has to be by far the best.

Zack wakes up, trapped on another ship and then sent to the Pit. Just by the sheer name of it you know it’s not going to be a good thing. The characters are all put through the mill here, in locating Zack and in fighting off the constant chase of their enemy. It will have you on the edge of your seat, in fits waiting for something to go right for a change, and hoping that everyone you’re starting to get to love makes it through.

Some of the best moments of the series are in here, from the realisation of the Nershal that not everything is out to kill you, to of course some home truths about the love x 4 that’s on going on the Athena.

Excellent narration once again, and great listen. Of course, I’m really excited for the next one, and hope it’s not too far off into the distance. I’m tempted to go to amazon and see if it’s been published yet, but that just annoys me, as I rarely get time to read.

Thanks guys. One to come back to this one 🙂
