O stars I m not sure but I m oing one to counteract all the positivity I How to Become a Virgin did a bunch of research to find the best place to get into the LitRPG genre Yikes This better not be the best it has to offerLet s start with an analogy Your ten year old non prodigy plays through a challenging violin concerto in the privacy of your home in front of family It s a spirited and entertaining rendition but far from professional No one wouldare put her on a stage and charge money as if she were a professionalDo you see where this is going Let s take Travis Bagwell s own profession No one would Dangerous Disguise (Cavanaugh Justice, dare try to represent someone in court without the years of necessary legal trainingThat s kind of why it baffles me that people think it s okay to slap up the book they wrote on and charge people money for it This belongs on a personal webpage or in the hands of family and friends or at the very least make it free on Just like any profession the art and craft of writing takes years of practice to get good at It s a lifelong journey A first year creative writing course could use this book for an entire semester as an example of what not too It shocks me that Bagwell The Bosss Baby Surprise didn t even look up basic things every grade school student learns before hitting publishHere s a few consistent issues that come to mind meaning they weren t typos There are many many Elementary errors Incorrect use of uotation marks Improper punctuation ofialogue Passive voice Excessive adverb use Tense confusion Unnecessary redundancyIntermediate errors Incorrect comma use Flat on the nose ialogue Tells instead of shows Dangling modifiers Excessive unintentional alliteration Lack of motivation or tension to move the story forwardAdvanced errors When showing chooses unimportant or common etails Weak or confused characterization Lack of clear value shifts and turning points at the scene level Lack of consideration of prose style bonus points for reflecting mood or actionNow we re professional Doesn t consider how internal and external global shape can contrast to create Command Performance dramatic tension Underdeveloped voiceI reallyon t say this to be mean I liked the story Just like the child playing the concerto can be spirited and entertaining this was spirited and entertaining I want to be clear that I m not saying hire an editor or there s typos as some other reviewers have put it There s an experience gap that has no easy fix other than for Bagwell to hunker Loveknot (Welcome to Tyler, down withozens of books on the craft of writing and slowly start to get these issues under control It takes 10000 hours of practice to get good at anything and writing is no exceptionMy hope is that he s gotten better with future books My guess is that since he s not so embarrassed by this one to make it free or to rewrite it or remove it entirely nothing has changed Be aware this is a very The Perfect Blend disturbing book I could have sworn this was a horror book and not LitRPG In any event I would not recommend reading it if you re sueamish Catharsis Awaken Online 1 by Travis Bagwell is an awesome lit RPG novel I had heard so much about so I got the audio and listened and I agree I saw some reviews that said they read the first 10 20 pages and uit because it was boring This is where the author is setting up who the characters are on the outside of the game which is super important later There is a reason the authoroesn t jump right into game mode This is plotted very well and bleeds out little trickles of info just enough for the reader to get hints of what is going on It keeps you guessing and wanting you to continue to read The action is fast and furious You think the main guy is evil he is not There is to this guy then you think There is a lot of epth to the characters and you really get to know them even some of the NPCs I already bought the next book and will read and review it too Great book.

Tifel who has voiced books in nearly every genre provided on Audible at the time of this review The book is best classified in the Literary Role Playing Game LitRPG subgenre It is a rather large book compared to others in its class coming in at 526 pages for the Kindle e So GOOD 5 StarsI can hardly believe that this is the author s first book I love a good Villain story but this book is so much than that I m fangirling to much to explain in coherent sentences This book was hard for me to rate On the one hand it really was not a great book The ialogue was pretty shoddy the characters were shallow the writing was not great The big twist that the main character was a bad guy occurred almost immediately as soon as the game part of the book got started The RPG side of things got incredibly repetitive hey I wonder if he will put these stat points into willpower and often the action plodded along as our narrator had to spell out problems in way too much etail even though they were uite straightforward based on the actions that previously took place eg obviously he feels betrayed that the chick sold him out o we really need for him to explain his emotions in so many sentences Please assume some intelligence from the readers Lastly the central motivation of our hero he How to Disappear doesn t have much money people hate him because he is poor is not particularly believable It seems made up rather than a problem the author actually has any experience with Not saying that people can t get made fun of because they are poor rather the authoroes not convince me that it would look and feel as he Act Like You Know decribesAnd yet and yet I found myself pretty hooked on this bookespite all the annoyances A Guide to Americas Sex Laws described above I was intrigued by the world that the author set up I was occasionally surprised by things that happened and the action was pretty fast paced even if some of the sentences were laborious as noted above Bottom line this isn t a well written book but it is a pretty good story So I found the beginning at school a bit boring and annoying That silent angryistracted type read teenager frustrates me And I also couldn t be bothered to read those italicized alternative pov chapter intros So boring I actually put the book Agewise down but I picked it back up yesterday And then he started playing the game I found myself going back to read all those intros I skipped hehe They were actually uite fun and by the end I was looking forward to them I became uite fond of Robert pAnyway for the remainder of the story I was thoroughly entertained as I love chaotic evil MCs By the last chapter I was pretty sure I would give this book 4 stars but I really had no interest in reading the seuel Then the epilogue happened so Uuurgh Ion t know how to review this bookIt was fun that s one thing It had a likable protagonist a fun setting and in interesting premise This is probably my first full LitRPG and the audiobook was really well narratedBut there are some glaring flaws The antagonist is a clich worse than many terrible comic book villains Any scene with him was actively annoying and I isliked the character not because he was a good antagonist but because of how much he resembled a bad comic book villainI also wish I feared for the main character a bit as you on t really feel that he is in A Village with My Name: A Family History of China's Opening to the World danger at all throughout the book The story and narration were enough to pull me along and Iid enjoy myself but I wish I could have been a little invested in the charactersBut y know I Anthropology as Cultural Critique did have fun Giant battles with exploding zombies skeleton creatures and the undead Fire mages Ice mages Necromancers This is aamn fun book especially for fans of video gamesSo yeah the book Anyone does have its flaws but that word fun keeps popping up I ve already bought the seuel and at this point I m pretty sure I ll be reading the whole trilogyFUN One stars tw.
