Sintesi dell'editore

All John wanted to do was get away for his life in Kluane National Park for a weekend. Hike, camp, and chill. Instead, the world comes to an end in a series of blue boxes, animals start evolving, and monsters start spawning. Now, he has to survive the apocalypse, get back to civilization, and not lose his mind. Life in the North is book one of the System Apocalypse, a litRPG apocalypse series that combines modern day life, science fiction, and fantasy elements along with game mechanics.

Your world is now forfeit

I love that the dude upgraded his body and ended up looking kinda like Keanu. This is a fun book, the MC has big anger issues which he's trying to work through and seems to be maybe pansexual from some of his conversations.
Very cool concept that weaves in lots of familiar skills and ideas. I liked it and am looking forward to another chapter in this story.

Very unexpected

A lot better than expected, hoping the story stays interesting in the second book. As always Nick is an amazing narrator and the characters have good feel to them I think this touches on some things that get left to the dust for characters that John experience and it is the anger they have built in that usually gets shoehorned into being some random burst of raw power and strength for them rather than actually being a flaw for the character.

God damn it John

Right so the thing is this so mostly a fun listen. There is a lot to like but the thing is John our hero is the fucking worst. I understand where he is coming from and why he does a lot of what he does but the things the man is still a bloody idiot and extremely frustrating. Can we get a new protagonist like Lana or Richard or any one but this jack ass who is a fucking idiot. It is rare for me to hate a protagonist this much. I can only that in the future he either improves and stops being a selfish man child or we change main characters.

suck

the closest romance he has is a male elf, so if you're not bi, it's going to annoy you, it jumps around so much that the story loses all it's life, no build up just start, finish nothing in the middle, starts out strong to draw you in then dies. get alter world, viriden gate or life reset ,world seed or a myriad of other series of the same genre that are better

Look, just go get it, it's a great listen...

I'll keep this simple and to the point:

- Great Concept
- Strong plot, flow and pace
- Narrator does it justice
- The second book in the series is waiting for you, and it's worth it.
- Lots of fun, and a great romp that blends scifi and fantasy.

Look, just go get it, it's a great listen, if you like LitRPGs.

Enjoy!

Great story and performance

I love this storyline but I don't know why. I really like the narrator and he has done other Lit RPG books just as well. It makes me nervous that the third book is "not available yet" I hope this doesn't become a never ending wait like a few other series I am waiting STILL for the next book in the series to become buyable! Some of these I have been waiting YEARS for not exaggerating. DON'T WAVE THE CARROT IN FRONT OF MY FACE IF YOU NEVER GIVE IT TO ME! But yah worth the credit and would buy book three as soon as it becomes available.

New Favorite!

This is an amazing story. I COULD NOT STOP LISTENING. I thought it was brilliant how he is good & evil, smart but depressed, strong yet vulnerable. Already bought #2 & waiting for #3 release!

Better than most LitRPGs

I'm an addicted fan of the genre, but find that all too often many of the selections on Audible are poorly written, cheesy, pubescent sex or power fantasies, whose characters are at best unbearably annoying and the damage is often compounded by being hammed up by over-emphatic narration.

... And absolutely worst of all, these books have clearly never been edited by someone with more than a 6th grade education in English writing composition.

So it's always exciting when a new series comes out written by an author who defies the norm. Wong has written a LitRPG novel that not only avoids all of the above problems but also expands the genre with a unique perspective.

Interesting spin on the LIT-RPG type.

I liked the storyline and can relate to the main character.
Hope Audible doesn't take 9 months to release the next in series.

Interesting idea for a story

Do you have any additional comments?

During action it was easy to follow the story but often I found the changes between scenes and enviroments erratic and abrupt. It is just my feeling though so don't let me put you off this book. The idea for the story is really good and characters are unique. It's just the way the story flows made me loose track of it more times than I can count. But if you can ignore it, this is a good book overall.
