Reboot: An Epic LitRPG Adventure (Afterlife Online Book 1) (English Edition) Reviews
Die Story ist ganz gut aber an manchen Punkten etwas zu grob gehalten. Ich kann sie nicht Ernst nehmen mit den Heiligen, Engeln, Heiden und Luzifer im alten Rom. Die Spielmechanik ist gut und stimmig aufgebaut und hat viel Potenzial. Leider wird das praktisch alles verschenkt und vom Autor nicht Ernst genommen.So vollbringen die Helden herrausragende Leistungen und schleudern ohne Ende Magie mit Level 4-5. Für was braucht es da noch Level?Mit dem Zeitverlauf wird es noch verrückter. Fast die gesamte Story findet in 24 Stunden statt. Das führt zu Dingen wie das der Hauptcharakter verärgert ist das sein neuer Freund ihm nicht seine Geheimnisse erzählt. Da kennen sie sich seit 12 Stunden.Oder wie schlimm es ist das man all seine harte Arbeit, Level, Ausrüstung etc. beim Reboot verliert. Was man halt so in 20 Stunden erreicht.Natürlich identifiziert man sich als frisch verstorbener bereits nach wenigen Stunden so sehr mit der neuen Welt das man alles tut um sie zu schützen. Sterben scheint gar nicht traumatisch zu sein und die Anpassung nur Stunden zu brauchen.Das macht das sehr unglaubwürdig. Ich werde das zweite Buch nicht lesen
Ohne Schnitzer oder Fehler, stimmig geschrieben und nicht übertreiben auf die Spielwerte eingestimmt. Damit eine empfehlenswerte Alternative zu den üblichen Fantasy Veröffentlichungen.Hat Spaß gemacht den Titel zu lesen, ich bin gespannt ob es weiter geht :)
Loved this. I hadn't yet read something similar. Nice read when you just want something fun and relaxing after a long day, so I got the audible version too, so I could just listen, when too tired to read. I liked it so much that I'm going to get the second part now.
I rather enjoyed this. I have noticed that many LitRPG authors will use the character pages as filler, or go down the rabbit hole of mechanics. While both are important, it can bog down the story. Domino has gone a different direction by trimming things to bare bones and making free will be the driver of development.Where the book was strong, it was very well done.The reason for only four stars?There were some character choices that did not ring true for me. There were some parts/ choices/ scenes that I would not have done, but you may enjoy it more than I did. The ending tied up a lot of plot points almost in a Hollywood 'let's all hold hands and sing' ending. Keep in mind I like things to be a bit on the dark side, so you may be cool with the finale and afterwards.Having wrapped up so much with book one, does this mean book two must have even more action, adventure, and awesomeness?I hope so. I’ll be looking for it to come out.
Talon wakes up in a game, being told he died in a car accident and is now beta-testing a computer game which his company intents to offer as a service to customers in the future. Talon starts exploring the world, quickly realizing more is going on than meets the eye. He ends up in the middle of a struggle between the company and a strange hacker while trying to find answers to his own questions. In the end he gets his answers, although they might not be entirely what he expected.The game elements are relatively simple, but appear to be well-thought out. Simple is good, since it allows the author to keep the game elements important, including giving Talon the ability to strategize character building (an important game element which is often missing from litRPG) without going too much into technical details. I found the character well-developed and growing throughout the story, both of the MC and the others stuck in the game. The story is tense and I like the mystery and how it develops.I am not entirely sure about the pacing. The story takes place in 1 day and a lot happens in it. Sure, Talon uses his wits, but most games are not this forgiving and earning 10 levels in 24 hours seems a bit extreme for a game that supposedly keeps people entertained for decades. Not overly important if you just care about the story, and the author might very well offer sollutions in future adventures. I am also not entirely sure about the concept of a game for the dead. Sure, I can belief that if you can copy a mind into a computer, keeping that mind entertained is important. Keeping that mind completely seperate from RL and not using it as a resource seems odd though. What value is there in preserving a mind if you do not intent to use it?All in all, an entertaining read and I am curious about future parts. Certainly a good addition to the litRPG genre.
Not perfect but it is an real novel as opposed to a litRPG genre knock off. I like litRPG but so many of the self published or small publisher books in that style couldn’t be considered readable if the game mechanics were removed.This author has a good mix of the real world affecting the game world. Characters are introduced and you get to know them better over time. Not deep but enough detail to be satisfying.I think more detail on the villain and a few more adventure episodes,would have made it a much better book, it seems a little rushed. However giving it 3.5 and a bit rounded up.
This was my first experience with a Lit-rpg novel and it was quite enjoyable!The story was easily accessible, the characters were well written and the continuing revelations really surprised me.That the main protagonist uses his logical thinking skills in lieu of brute force also helped to strongly endear him to me and it's something surprisingly few books do.Overall, this was a great book and has opened up a new genre I really didn't even know was a thing.I'd definitely recommend it!
Cons: There seems to be some rhetorical statements and conversations that don't make sense. The story doesn't pick up til about two thirds through the book.Pros: After the two thirds point I find the authors writing quite good. When I thought I knew what was coming something else would happen to keep the mystery alive until the end.
