"I have never reviewed a book but felt this one deserved it. The author made me laugh and managed to hook me with original characters as well as an intriguing setting/storyline. Amongst a sea of Litrpg books that are crippled by poor editing, unoriginal takes on the core Litrpg genre tropes as well as a disconcerting need to turn everything into a harem story this author has my attention and is going on my short list of download immediately authors." -Kindle reviewer
About the Author
Eric Ugland ran away from Seattle to join the circus. And then he came to his senses, and moved to Manhattan. Now hes a novelist in Los Angeles. Dont worry, it doesnt make sense to him either.--This text refers to the audioCD edition.

When entering the “magical” world the MC is given some overpowered gear that he loses in the beginning under a highly doubtful scene so stupid that it lacks any credibility. The MC moreover decide against looking after the lost gear even though it seems likely that he could get it back.
The book is okay written, and the mechanics, skill and attribute system follow a known path and is easy recognizable and well thought out. But unless you can pick up the book on unlimited or something similar don’t bother reading.
The concept was good, game mechanics good (standard).
Writing was good, with very few mistakes, easy to follow
Worth buying for a first book and i will look to see the 2nd hopefully the auther will grow as they continue to write
Seems like true LitRPG, transport to other world
I believe there is enough depth of character in the first book, but would like more if series continues
Cons: (my opinion only)
I am not a fan of showing full stats and spells all the time, this is just page filler. Just show full stats of everything once, then only show what is changed or just level and main stats. Not interested in 3 pages of stats. This wasn't throughout the book but was just enough to annoy me.
At one point MC started to say "like", if you ever remember someone from speech class that kept saying "like". (Like I was like having a bad day and like I fell down and like hurt my knee). Yeah at that point MC's IQ dropped 10 points Ugh.
Worst for me was that the MC seems like he knows stuff but does stupid things all the time? Is he an adult or a child?
It is a fun read; well worth the 4 dollars. I will also say that I purchased the second book and it didn't disappoint. I am looking forward to book three.
Fish out of water: While the main character is described as a member of a biker game who beats people up, he sounds more like a hipster and says ‘Like’ a lot. Like I tried counting how many times but I gave up after a hundred or so. Anyway, I’d except more of a ‘Sons of Anarchy’ instead of ‘Archer’
Classic Fantasy: Pretty standard, builds as a character gains more power and ends in a rescue, it could have been right from a Conan novel. The ending battle was confusing, but that sounds like a raid zone and they aren’t laid out well.
Game Fiction: Odd way the game worked. Seems a lot like a skill-based game like ‘Asheron’s Call’. I loved Mister Paul and the idea of Gifts/ twitch bits. But they weren’t used again in the novel. The character sheet did get very long, and the skill descriptions weren’t need each time.
I received a gift of Kindle Unlimited for the Holidays and I checked out book #2 as my first one. I’m looking forward to it.
A few mistakes I noticed Chp34. “You reach level 10 in the skill Large Weapon Throwing” then in the follow character sheet it shows “Large Weapon Throwing (Lvl 9) “
Chp 37 you talk about UX (grats on knowing what that is) but since it’s just moving screens around in a game it’s probably more of a UI.
Chp 51 – “..but that meant the entire town would know I had ta (a) bad of holding”
Oh and PS... PLEASE ADD A MAP.
This tale sadly had one of the more negative styled starts with the MC in trouble and seeking escape. It took little time for me to realize this was going to be a "die and enter a virtual world to live again", sequence. And once I saw that, I drifted away from getting deep into the tale.
The writing here is solid, but my reviews reflect how into the story I got. This one because of what I feel is a very overused trope at the start failed to draw me in and actually pushed me away a bit. In the end I feel that I can't give it better than 2 stars. It just felt like so many other LitRPG tales I've read and that brought it down.

Plot. Guy gets sent to video game world. There it is. There is the entire plot of the story. We don't need to go into it further.
Characters: Montana is a lowlife who sold drugs, was in a biker gang, had a girlfriend who died, has rich friends, and has lead an interesting life. Now, before we go on I just want to point out that the author has given us none of that. What the author has done is paste his face onto a hulking barbarian who is nieve, good hearted, doesn't learn from his mistakes, and suffers from being too over powered. He is every single gamer that got trapped into a fantasy world with the author only bringing up his backstory because he needs to remind his audience how much of a badass his character is.
What I like: I suppose that it is something to read while you are waiting for a book with some good character development.
What I don't like: Character is basic. There is no one that really stands out. This is more of a slice of life.
I binged through all -currently 9- available audiobooks and loved every second of this narration.
Great story, great voice actor.
Please keep it like that and dont bother with adding additional voice actors or sound effects.
The only downside i can find are some books being a little short and/or ending with cliffhangers.
And also having to wait for the next release.
