Another garbage book

So, this guy has unlimited lives and can't be killed it seems, as he has been killed then just respawning again and again. This is just trash, if he could at least die permanently it would be great, but having him die and come back, then die and come back over and over is just so bad. It gives him no consequences for his poor actions and he even says it wow. This author must know he's selling a pile of shit to people lol as he also makes mention of that as well. please just give me my money back.

A great new LITRPG series by a phenomenal author

I happen to greatly enjoy Locke’s books so finding a new series with him is awesome. Our scenario is post apocalypse. Everyone has new powers, stats and the opportunity to advance in this new society. The cost? Killing others. And trying not to die yourself. Unless you are like the mc who is a respawner. Great action, great characters. The narration is spot on. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher

Fun story, doesn't take itself seriously.

I've now read this and listened to the audiobook. This is a system apocalypse style book which is right in line with my taste but it has some differences like re-spawns. The rules don't make a ton of sense as of finishing the first novel as everyone seems to be following different ones but it makes up for that by painting a good picture. The main character will be either a hit or miss with readers he was a hit with me and the novel enjoys poking fun at a few stereotypes which I found amusing. The narrator did a well enough job bringing the book to life. Overall it's a fun read or listen for a few hours and if you like system apocalypse style stories you will probably enjoy this.

Only got this for the Amizon Mimic meme.

And that was only 20 minutes of this bad book.
Narrator can't even say skull right and the way he pronounces most other things made me wince.
If you told me this was a 15 year old's first book I would say good start work on it a little more but this is just a rambling stalling for word count blend of things you've seen online when in doubt just look through reddit and just copy what you see there huh Authors?

Mc is kinda a dbag

first half of book the Mc comes off as a complete ass and if I wasn't listening to the book in the background I doubt I would have made it past that but it does get better after that

TLDR: great narrating okayish story

The performance was legit I enjoyed every moment of it. However the story was hit or miss. The respawn timer and dying was a bit weak

Was a great listen.

I really enjoyed this one. I want to see more of the world. The MC can be a bit dense, but I honestly found that refreshing.

awesome but too short

Man the main character is a tool of the highest proportions, He's pretty dumb and kind of unlikable but the book and mc himself are quite aware of his issues. The mc gets super lucky with his start but makes completely terrible decisions and is continually getting wrecked for his own stupidity.

good narration, the comedy is pretty good, overall quite fun.

however

I really hope Wolfe only does this with their first books in a series to gage interest. because so far both series from them I have listened to have been excellent.I saw there will also be a dungeon core from them soon as well, and I expect that will also be awesome.

I 5* recommend the content of this book, but I have a problem recommending spending a credit on a book this short.

I received a free copy of this book for review purposes.

Solid start to a new series

This book is a good litrpg where the MC understands he is making stupid choices but towards the end of the book he starts to correct them showing character development and the way the book is it opens up to city development and world development in the next book. I’m excited to see where this goes.

Not great presentation

I have read this book and thought why not get the audio book. what a mistake. The story isn't great but is fun and entertaining but the performance of this story is quite irritating, I'm not sure if it is me but I found the tone or accent, but I almost switched off.

went over the top in an otherwise enjoyable story.

mostly okay setting, but the main character is both unbelievably stupid and unlikable.
this isn't helped by the constant jokes about nerds, neckbeards and other degrading of gamers.

Story and narration spot on!

The story was great, I only wished it was longer. I can't wait to listen to the others when they are released.
As for the narration, it was perfect, his voice suited Dan down to a T. His voice was clearly spoken and wasn't in the slightest irritating.

Well done Curt for the perfect narration, I hope you narate the other books when they are released!

Great litrpg zombie apocalypse Batman!

Great book 🙂 the character is kind of a dumbass but he's a likable one and a badass to boot. The system is cool and the characters well done. Fun, violence, and chocolate. Go read/listen to it!

Mc is an idiot

I listened to the end in the hope that the mc would make even one smart choice, but no he was an idiot to the last page.
This book was neither fun or funny.
