    Good BookI thoroughly enjoyed this book! Although by the end there were some unanswered questions at least the author didn't end with a cliff hanger. I would love a second book maybe with the focus on another person to help wrap stuff up. But I understand it really wasn't written that way. To Mr. Schinhofen, Thank you for taking the time and effort to write this story!

    RefreshingI really enjoyed this book. While the world and its magic system were nothing special the character dynamic was a blast. This book really focuses on gaming families and how these video games can bring people together. It made it a really fun read and I am eagerly awaiting the next installment.

    This is what litrpg should beA great book. This is what a litrpg should be, and I see this book as the new bar. Rather than some erotic novel, it is a grounded story that gives the balance between the game world and the real world true feeling.

    EpicWith a full range of emotional ups and downs, this story carries you on a journey. I strongly suggest this story and hope the author continues writing about the group of friends portrayed here.

    What a rollercoaster.From the opening this story will hit you in ways that you could never suspect. It tackles some hard truths in the gaming industry that I hope people can learn from.

    Pain fullI stuck with this way longer than it deserved, the plot is hollow and the characters shallow.Don't bother with this one.

    This was a strange book. LitRPG's are a genre of book targeted at a moderately young audience as gamers are their primary demographic. This book, however, centers primarily on three elderly individuals and their, also older, friends. An interesting concept, certainly, and different from all the other stories. In some ways, the setup it reminds me of Cohen the Barbarian and his silver hord from Discworld.(view spoiler)[Unfortunately the setup doesn't work. While there is some humor to this story, a major plot point is one of the main characters finds out he's dying soon of cancer. It adds a dark pawl to all events. This is still all good, h0nestly, but the problem is they WAY over play the melodrama.Also, for a story primarily about old people, there are a lot of implied physical intimacy happening in and out of the game.(hide spoiler)]It's not so much a lit rpg as it is a character drama with some MMO lets play. The story does involve a lot of playing, but the events of the game don't really matter apart from the relationship building of the characters. In the end, the story was ok, but not really my thing.

    3.5 StarsThis one is odd, although having elder "gamers" opt to live their retirement in VR actually makes sense and has been used in other Litrpg books, this one decided to make them the MCs and follow their adventures as they fly above all the wiper snappers that have joined the beta testing of Last Horizon.Not only that but the whole dynamic of it reminded me sharply of John Scalzi's series (old man's war)... just minus the serious consequences.The dialogue and character interactions were fun at first but quickly fell into a rut as the "old friend banter" and in-jokes took over... which is actually surprising as they took in a new member, you'd think it would take longer to infiltrate such a tight group!!!This was character driven and so a lot of attention was given to them, the world build however was left bare boned. it's not bad just rather generic and lacking in details.Overall it was an idea the started off interesting enough but suffered stagnation later on as the hookline of "elders playing video games" never progressed or gained depth.

    DNF 33% or so before I put it downI read all of Daniel Schinhofen's other books and loved them, so I picked up this one expecting the same. It is definitely not the same quality as the others.It had a slow start, but I am ok with that if the book pays off. It did not.The biggest problem with this book is that there is no plot. It is literally just a group of 3 people and a pickup person who play the game. We are to assume that they are way ahead of everyone else in the game due to luck and "skill" although they show zero skill until they fight the goblin chief. Even then, it was only possible because cheat like weapons.Most LitRPGs have a plot to them:Make money SurviveProve they are the BestSave Humanityetc.This book had none of the above goals. The goal was to log in and complete content. I can get the same reading experience reading video game forums of people talking about their dungeon crawls....

    A really interesting take on LitRPG, probably more akin to what one would view a true game experience. Questing, questing and questing.The "Beta" tag is a bit of a disappointment as it continues to be brought up throughout the book, and everything they do is basically non-existent in the future. Although there's definite foreshadowing that this is not necessarily the case, and there seems to be a fairly large expectation that the finality of the main "crisis" will be resolved in a way that is somewhat staple to the genre.The mechanics of the game are extremely weak, but if this is the case due to the "beta" I think it can be forgiven. If it's ongoing, then I'm sure it will be detrimental to the overall story.It was still an enjoyable read, with a lot of character driven pieces which does tend to ingratiate you to the main characters. I know book 2 is out already and will be looking to pick it up in the next little bit.

    If my english teacher sees this then please scroll by because im bad at reviews.no seriously.Anyway...This book sits between the the 3 stars and the 4 stars. This book was a little bit different. Casual litrpg, as the description says, and the book doesn't exclusively focus on one character that much. It focuses on the whole group. There sort of was a love triangle but it was not really a part of the plot, and isn't important. I mean its not even a subplot, its sort of a really small subplot. Im happy for that though, I hate romance.A few things annoyed me but it doesn't really matter.ex. Healer heals themselves first then heals the tank. (healer isn't in any danger) Always heal the tank.

    One of the betterThis was my first last horizon book that i have read and truly enjoyed every page of it. Enjoyed so much that i start to reconsider the path that i chose.This book proves that you are young as long as you feel that way. Besides the compliments there is an editing issue. Misspelling In every page, which is annoying and have to re-read some several times to understand what the author wanted.. that may need tó be fixed to enjoy it without annoyance.

    Liked this one; the sequel not so much.I enjoyed this book, but wish I'd stopped here. Just a heads up. I don't personally care for downer endings, and the downsides of the sequel ending pretty much killed the upside aspects. I left a spoiler review for those who share my preference. If that doesn't affect your reading choices, then you might really enjoy the sequel.

    Not badSeems this was more of stale of relationships and living life to the fullest. I enjoyed it and was even emotional at times but it was lacking action. The fights weren't described well at all and not being picky but more than a few spelling and grammar errors escaped the editors.All in all a decent read.

    StellarAstound cast of characters with both well established personalities and places to grow. An great take of organic quests inside of an mmorpg. I laughed and cried along with the characters

    Very well done.If you like litrpg books the two books in this series are a must read. Grats to the author, I will definitely be reading other works in hope that they will be as good.

    This is the Authors first book and it is brilliantly told. I enjoyed it from start to finish. Some genuinely heartfelt well developed characters. one of the best books in this genre. The story is well balanced and brillantly paced.

    Solid litrpg story that's more about relationships than the worldNegative: an odd Balance of describing the trivial too much and the important not enough. The occasional spelling error. Positive: an interesting world with likeable characters.
