Great story but needs a better editor
Reviewed in the United States on July 6, 2020
This is the start to another great series...however, it really needs a much better editor.
I love the character Max, he’s not some young feckless gamer excited about being transported into a litrpg world. He actually is thinking and planning for his new circumstances. In addition, he has a good head on his shoulders (while he scrambles from situation to situation just barely staying ahead of calamity).
The world he finds himself in, he’s at a disadvantage as he is NOT a gamer so it’s fun to watch him try to make sense of his surroundings while trying to survive.
The downside of this book is a lot of errors (spelling/grammar) somehow got through the proofing process, which is a shame as I would have definitely rated this book higher.
There’s missing punctuation such as “ when characters are speaking (this happens throughout the book), misspelled words ‘waived’ instead of ‘waved’ and odd spacing.
Fortunately, I was able to ignore these problem and focus on the story but l was half-way through the book by then.
Overall, the story/plot was excellent, fast-paced and crackled with life and energy. I will definitely follow this series.
