Gamer for Life (Alpha World Book 1) (English Edition) Reviews
Gamer for Life uses a lot of the typical LitRPG-Tropes that other Books in the same Vein use, but quite often falls far too short in follow-through.While other Books of the Genre try to make their Characters at least a little bit Human and believable, here they are completetely flat.The Main-Character is an egotistical Military-Type who obviously thinks every other Male Charakter is either a Brute or a Buffoon, except those in the Military. All Female Characters are either there to fulfill the Authors Sexual desires or have no Character at all and even those he wants to sex fall into Tropes immediately (Big-Busted Subservient Girl, small and lithe Minx, shy Anime-Catgirl).The first 30% of the Book set up a lot of Good Ideas, the rest is basically an Erotic Fanfiction (or flat out Wordporn).
While harem stories typically do nothing for me, the genre doesn't put me off, either. But. It's one thing to write about an ideal male (what are stories for, after all) having multiple, perfectly amicable sexual relationships with every female he's ever had line of sight to... and quite something else to write about a character I can't help but view as a self-righteous vigilante-type (who does not fill the role he's written into, the one of upright savior and tolerant protector, like, at all) stiff-necking his way through scenes of lackluster emotional depth until he's gifted with a being whose very purpose is to have sex with him. The fact that no character in this story is likable, most of them are flat to the point of carbon-copy and offset only by the enemy-types who feel comparatively worse, made me at long last arrive at a point where the main story was taken over by personal relationships of people I didn't want to know, and didn't care about.And... "I killed him but he deserved it" it so trope, the bedbugs in my mattress were cringing. In other words, a girl had to die to give this protagonist a backstory, and I think she died in vain.
Honestly a good read! I enjoyed it quite a bit and, together with several other well made novels, motivated me to write this.I'll spoil no content and simply recommend strongly to give this book a chance. It's definately worth the time. ;)
Ok, this is it. Absolutely the way it has to be done. I just love the old school way Daniel used it just straight takes you back to your very first MMORPG and you are just there again and experience it all over again. Loving it. No fancy mana-core-manipulation, jRPGish stuff with Chi sth or other, no, just good old MMORPG leveling, looting, boss-kills, group-setup, questing, exploring new areas, re-spawn timers, etc etc. It is just great and I can't get enough of it. Please make that next book happen faster, ok? :)Now, I might sound like a fanboy or paid review now, but I hardly bother to review LitRPG anymore as most of it nowadays just doesn't appeal to me anymore (read: It's crap and everyone wants to get your bucks by riding the wave of a new trend....) but this one stands out in my opinion. If you are into good old RPG-style MMORPG I am pretty sure you will love it.Oh and I loved some of the inside jokes you only get if you ever played the game some aspects of this novel are based on. Waiting for the teleport guy to appear (Visur....)....yeah! No need to buy a medal? :)
I took it in my hand and read it for about 8 hours nonstop until finished.The story is interesting (I don't want to spoiler anything), but some of the chars are hilarious. I laughed at nearly all of the comments from "Bob the Fearles" and Tiny the Destroyer is great in itself.If you like the Genre of LitRPG then this is a must have for you. I cannot wait for the second part.
Alright the first book may not be that bad but it only gets worse.The writing style is nothing special but I can overlook it. However the title of the book says "Gamer for life". The author should've named it "Pancakes for life".The main character is at least for me extremely unlikeable, in every action he does the author writes how he tips people. Like srsly, I only got to 30% of book 2 and he wrote like 7 times how he used the portal for one gold and tipped antother gold. Yes he tips, I got it after the first 5 times.But the deal breaker for me was. I wanted to read a novel where the character lives in a game. That means where he does game stuff. Quest lines etc. This is simply not happening.Instead we get several generic sex scenes each book (after the third one of book three in barely 30% in I stopped) with each having 10-20 pages of text.The premise looked good. But then the book went to permanent pancakes + talk about all the stuff around it (like with the npc father of that one npc girl). While the quests were all "kill 20 of that" without any Kontext whatsoever.
"Alburet said..." if you dont mind a book starting Every sentence the same freaking way ...this is for you. Im impressed with anyone reading 20 pages of "alburet said/did/saw/looked/etc" and doesn't stop
I have just finished the first 5 books, all back to back as I am on holiday. I just had to come back to comment on the first. The series so far has really produced a roller coaster of emotions and touched me quite deeply. From the first book the story just grows and grows. Sometimes the sex scenes were too much but they were generally necessary for the story and as a speed reader I could scan through and when the story picked up again.concentrate again.
