Having said that, what's there is all right. I don't care about the exact statistics of this fictional game, so my eyes glaze over at reading extended discussions of Oleg paying 42 gold pieces for a shirt that gives him precisely +69 Awesomeness. The premise that people somehow get physically hurt by being killed in-game... eh, it's done by other writers, and I don't like it because it's basically fantasy in an SF setting, but it does allude to a real problem of people gaming to exhaustion. The whole "daily grind" concept is neat; there really are people who've played MMOs as a job. Where the fantasy stats become interesting is in seeing Oleg try to game the system, eg. carefully timing when he gains a level or arranging items to make high-quality unbreakable gear that looks inferior. There's some surprisingly interesting tension in some of that.
So, you might like this book, so long as you don't expect answers to the main questions it raises and just want to enjoy the journey toward them.
Kudos to the translator -- unlike many translations, the book had a "Western feel". The pacing was good, grammar errors minimal, and the story itself (mostly) realistic -- realistic enough given it's the author's "Universe" which allows some suspension of belief... The book was (perhaps) a bit short, and it's conclusion, while not "cliff hanging", left the MC just short of his next adventure.
I recommend this book to readers interested in VRMMORPG and Urban Fantasy. Enjoy...
The LitRPG element is well done and fans of the Shaman series will enjoy this.The motivation for the main character was consistent and twists in the plot-line weren't unfounded or rampantly against the preceding story arc. While a LitRPG, the game elements don't detract from the story and it's an easy to follow system for newcomers to the genre. Overall, an awesome read and I definitely recommend.
I may be biased as I was a fairly serious WoW raider for many years and the progression of new player jumping into an MMO wandering around and discovering both the game rules and the game world rules along with social interactions was great. It meshed well, made sense when it came up. There are enough of the game mechanics discussed so that the various intersections with the plot elements feel nice. If there were any grammar issues I didn't notice them or read over them.
I pre-ordered the next book.
The bonus part of the story is that he lucks into an excellent character race for his job, and the story progresses from there with quests and general raising of abilities.
Enjoyable and worth the read.
