Publisher's Summary

Marc's home from college on break, spending his time laughing about some of the crazy news stories he's found online, and gaming. When a message appears in his line of sight, blocking out absolutely everything else, he nearly freaks out. The message warns that the world has been in a variant Natural Laws beta test for millennia and that it's about to revert to the norms.

Deciding that even if he is insane, it's not going to hurt anything to try to prepare, he settles in to do so. Despite the atrocious lack of skill the System has with the English language, he manages to work his way through enough help files to get a clue of what's coming. After sharing his discovery with a few friends, they all start to prepare together.

Once the change begins, the small group races to create a Safe Zone, an area where monsters will not spawn and where they can gather other survivors in an attempt to rescue as much of the town as possible. Along the way they discover that the new System can award classes that resemble those of the games the group has played, as well as magic for those capable of grasping it.

With monsters spawning throughout the town, everyday animals being mutated into dangerous creatures, and a System that desperately needs English language lessons, they'll do their best to save as many of the local residents as they can.

Awkward. Painful. A choir.

It really is a bad sign when I recognise an author, not my his name, but by their terrible, robotic, stilted, overly verbose and unrealistic dialogue.

I should just remember the name for the future... Save myself the credits.

And lol at having an mp3 player because 'phones don't have SD cards.'

Buyer beware

If I was reading this I probably would put down after first couple chapters. still not through listening to it but unless it ends better then it began I'll probably not waste another credit. Main character acts like he's on the spectrum. Premise is interesting, execution leaves alot to be desired. not into dogging an author just wish for a better product.

i want to like this more than i did

the litrpg genre has poor storytelling principles as a whole, i've noticed it alot on audible, few litrpg writers focus on their storytelling, getting caught up in theie unique system. it's ok to delve into the system when it serves the story, but alot of litrpg authors get caught in the exposition traps of their system.
inciting incident, progressive complication, crisis, climax, resolution. it's the base structure that makes a compelling story, and missing any makes a story feel unsatisfying. this story's too caught up in the system, it's beats get put out of place.

start slow but gets really good

Starts out kind of slow and bland, but it really starts to pick up once you get in there always and by the end you'll be hoping there's a book two.

Bad Story telling and Narrator

It's a pain to listen to this, while I'm working I fight to stay awake and cringe at the Narrator's horrible job. Do not waste your credit on this, go look for something else.

Enjoyable but a bit cringy

Had a cringy "Karen" part I had to skip threw, really ridiculous and not needed.

Don’t waste the credit

Slow, boring and seems to be written by someone in a junior high writing class.

I read the book before I listened

I like this story. It is unique in it's story and light on superfluous details. It also shows how bad some people can get in a lawless time but you know the good guys are going to win. Though it is a simple story and lacks the gravitas of some books. I don't care. I'm not always looking for heavy reading but enjoy a good story. This fits the bill.

I liked reading the book more than the audio book though. A respectable reader, the narrator didn't quite fit with this book.

Great Story - Loved the World and Magic

The story was great. I really enjoyed the story. It was fun listening to a new take on the end of the world as we know it.

The main character had lots of well thought out ideas. And I enjoyed the secondary characters thoroughly.

Waste of time

This book was such a disappointment. There was no risk, no tension and no drama.

The main characters party is always just above the level curve so every fight is a boring grind.
The main character is a self insert with a "every body is an idiot but me" outlook, which is backed by the authors own opinions.
Any time the mc has a Stray thought about the system, just consider it a fact the system works that way. There is no testing or figuring things out. It just is.

Apocalypse usually means loss and heart break, some sort of character stress. But literally every bad things happens to somebody else. Yet the world still revolves around the mc. Somehow getting achievements for "first" In the world. Hours after the opportunity spawns. Getting special attention from the system for being a grammar nazi.

There is never a threat of death if the author has given a character a name.

There was one point of conflict that was teased and expanded upon with some 'karens' causing problems. I thought it would turn into some sort of interesting moment. But no.

The MC literally stands to the side and watches them leave whilst someone else escorts them out. The Karen's don't say a word, the mc doesn't say a word there is no final conflict. the entire subplot was swept away in about 2 sentences.

Good story but…

There is a good story here and I shall buy the next book, I do wish the author had bit more character development. It seems needlessly complicated in places and glosses over the items that do need more information.

Not for Me

Wow, couldn’t get pass chapter 4, sorry Tom this audiobook isn’t for old farts like me. I’m a old gamer from way back and this story is setup for young teen readers anyone over 20 will get really frustrated with the characters I was just waiting for the trans black leso character to turn up, but in the end the character’s were driving me nuts I’m probably to old for this book.
