    1. 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 quit 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 author doesn t jump right into game mode This is plotted very well and bleeds out little trickles of info just enough for th [...]

    2. Uuurgh I don t know how to review this book.It 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 narrated.But 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 disliked the character not because he was a good antagonist, but because of how much he resembled a bad comic book vill [...]

    3. So GOOD 5 Stars.I 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.

    4. Bingo Squares Debut novel, self publishedPlot SummarySo, this book is set in the future, around the year 2076 virtual reality video games are a big thing, and a new game that s supposed to be record breaking and ground breaking is being released soon During the control tests with beta players the AI system that controls the whole video game starts going rogue The AI named Alfred is over riding protocols, and doing things he wasn t designed to do like access players memories Alfred is supposed to [...]

    5. This book was hard for me to rate On the one hand, it really was not a great book The dialogue 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 m [...]

    6. The synopsis on is pretty great, and honestly, if you re the type of nerd who reads that synopsis and is intrigued, or thinks it may be good, you re probably going to like it I feel the only time someone wouldn t like it is if RPG books aren t their thing I happen to love them, which is why I looked for a book like this in the first place I sifted through a few books, and I m so happy this one was the book I chose Okay Enough of the recommendation details.Why I enjoyed the book It was a captivat [...]

    7. 3.5 stars Knocking down a half start just for the beginning of the book I don t expect that it would be an issue hopefully continuing the series The book started out with some shenanigans of repetition and odd parents Jason is picked on for being perceived as a welfare kid, despite the contradiction of having parents that don t seem to work and go gallivanting off as activists I could rant on the parents, so maybe their extremely brief presence in the book is just that strongly or repetitively w [...]

    8. This is a FAR better RPG story than Ready Player One, which was great for the litany of 80s references Awaken Online is set in 2074, but the world is not unfamiliar, the story is told from two sides in such a way to build GREAT plot tension around the game and all that it is.The complete VR emersion for players makes the in game world as real as everything else as far as story While it also deals with High Schoolers, the plot is far violent and adult than Ready Player One as well I only even c [...]

    9. Great first bookWell written, intelligent main character, and doesn t end in a huge cliffhanger Now I just have to wait for book two

    10. My original Awaken Online Catharsis audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer Awaken Online Catharsis is the first of two books in the Awaken Online series written by Travis Bagwell The audiobook edition is richly narrated by David Stifel 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 [...]

    11. One stars, two stars I m not sure, but I m doing one to counteract all the positivity I 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 offer.Let 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 would dare put her on a stage and charge money as if she wer [...]

    12. I downloaded a Kindle sample because it was one of the highest rated cyberpunk books on Couldn t even make it through the first chapter Such boring, uncreative prose Also, the 10 pages I read contained multiple instances of characters talking out loud to themselves in a ridiculously unrealistic manner, saying incredibly mundane things that an actual person would just think to themselves, if they were thoughts that would ve occurred to them at all Just the most amateurish way of conveying charact [...]

    13. HmmmmWasn t sure I was going to like this book, the beginning was meh but I enjoyed the book far after he got in the game world I thoroughly enjoy the in depth strategies he used to over come his enemies instead of going in waving his sword like a mad man Plus Bone lord lol

    14. So, I found the beginning at school a bit boring and annoying That silent angry distracted 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 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 quite fun and by the end I was looking owing forward to them I became quite fond of Robert [...]

    15. Another book in LitRPG genre advertised as one of the best High overall score and positive reviews For me, after experiencing the content from several genre flagships, this was a logical step forward.But this time, I already have a certain demands from a good LitRPG book The backstory, the characters, the VR world, the chemistry Quality expected.Starting with the backstory, I think it is shallow Author tries too hard to justify the behavior of the main character and overdoes it This makes it les [...]

    16. Hard to believe it s his first novelThis was probably one of my favorite Litrpg books I ve ever read the story grabs you from the beginning and never lets goI can t wait for the next book in the series.

    17. Usually after a long day at work selling video games I don t then want to come home and read about video games in my down time I prefer to be swept up in something of the science nature, maybe a little something with a touch of fantasy or maybe a bit of a mystery thriller That being said this book blew me away I actually looked forward to coming home and diving back into the Twilight Throne and sinking into the war that was fast approaching.The online world that Mr Bagwell paints is hands down [...]

    18. This is a whole new genre of book It s called LitRPG My son loved this series, so I decided to give it a try Yes, it s like Ready Player One It and others in this new genre are only available as e books I feel so hip LitRPG Literary Role Playing Game means video games, or game like challenges form an essential part of the story It s really weird to read about someone playing a video game A lot of the story is a description of Jason s game character and what he did next in game, and him deciding [...]

    19. Awaken Online Catharsis was Travis Bagwell s first book and the novel is praised by many to be one of the finest examples of the popular science fiction subgenre called LitRPG a subgenre that mostly reads like an MMORPG game Everquest, World of Warcraft, Elder Scrolls Online, etc is played I enjoyed Bagwell s exploration of the confused, immature, and selfish ambitions of the adolescent male gamer personified in both the protagonist and antagonist The real hero, in fact, is Riley, a young woman [...]

    20. That was a great read Other then Ready Player One I ve never read a litRPG book and wow I really liked it But never got to know why Jason was singled out by Alfred from the beginning I am sure there are other players killing off their first targets I would have doesn t mean I would go evil through out the game In my fav MMORPG I am a Necromancer too but doesn t mean I am a villain I just like to kill with my minions.Yes I agree to many before the pre story for Jason is pretty standard young adul [...]

    21. Surprisingly good It s nice to see someone actually make their main character in a lit rpg less of a hero archetype The characters are pretty believable as well The only things that distracted me from reading were a few spelling mistakes and such, though they were pretty rare.I definitely enjoyed the book, gonna have to get the next one

    22. Historien irl er temmelig uoriginal Men shit resten af den er god In game er det virkelig fed fantasy p en anderledes og cool m de D Jeg m l se mere af denne genre

    23. Good debut I enjoy these kinds of books In the same vein as Moonlight Sculpture and Play to Live series Some pretty decent LitRPG I dont play video games either but I do enjoy these Been away for about a year Excited to be back to reading and rejoining the community.

    24. This book really surprised me 4.5 stars.Truly a contender for best Lit RPG I ve read Only other I ve enjoyed this much is The Way of the Shaman.This book is of a well thought out, really fun adventure rather than a beautiful and immersive fantasy.The ideas are par for the course as far as the genre goes New technology, super MMO in VR, development of fantasy level artificial intelligence, etcetera.What makes this series really stand apart is the execution of the ideas and plots They came togeth [...]

    25. Wonderful LitRPG enjoyed the technology and the gaming system Would play the game Awaken Online in a second, except for the possible end game of Alfred Gaming system sounds infinitely playable and truly rewards you for how you play, straight vs cunning, lawful vs unlawful, planned out vs impulsively, cross class vs pure class, etc As the world is changed by the actions of the visitors travelers no two players have a similar game and it can never be replayed exactly the same way twice What most R [...]

    26. I wish I could give this a high score than 5 stars, this book is the embodiment of amazing.The role reversal of this book is what instantly hooked me to it, there is nothing satisfying that seeing the main character resolved with his actions and grow from it The flow of the book and the feel of every character and their reaction is superb I also love the play by play action that every character goes through, it really gives a greater detail when it shows many perspective to an action that has o [...]

    27. AwesomeI have to say kudos to the author especially since it is his first book I think reading from the perspective of a villain was quite interesting I used quotations because it obvious by the end of the story he is not villain but a hero I love it when dark is not always e il and light is not always good It allows for gruesome effects while still doing the right thing Now the hero at time did go over board but that is part of growing I cannot wait till the next book.
