à Precipice (Awaken Online, #2) Ù Download by Æ Travis Bagwell Whaaaaat THAT ENDING THOUGH. I can t handle it It was amazing. My original Awaken Online Precipice audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer Awaken Online Precipice is the second book in the Awake Online series of books The series is written by Travis Bagwell and the audiobook edition is narrated by David Stifel Because this is a continuation in a series of books, I highly recommend you first read or listen to book one and if you enjoyed that, book two is a single credit away The second book picks up a few days after the first concluded Here we are once again thrown into the life of Jason, a high school student who plays Awake Online to escape his real world troubles Not only does he have issues with his parents, but the boy who has been physically bullying him is now his arch nemesis in the virtual world as well This book, like the first, is a Literary RPG coming of age story It is not overly deep or comp 3. 5 stars. The Good It s nice to see that the protagonist isn t taking on the entire world as a solo character any I like the inclusion of emotional relationships within the protagonist s social circle as opposed to making everything about leveling and killing stuff. The world seems well developed both in terms of the in game environment and futuristic out of game society The distinction between an evil character and an evil player is a unique and welcome addition to this genre as most people much like GM character at the end tend to not be able to differentiate between the two I was intrigued by the concept of Good and Evil being matters of popular opinion and would have liked to learnabout that as it relates to the game world I suspect that in subsequent novels this will be explored indepth because we are told that the protagonist is g
Better and betterIt s not often that a sequel beats out the first book, but this one does a great impersonation of doing just that. Spoiler ahead, not super big ones imo but I talk about plots spanning the whole book The whole gm thing was silly with them all instantly power tripping and causing massive collateral damage it was so obvious that they were set up as powerful enemie to fight ingame and even if your ai prevents big changes of the world you should still have control about the login system so just give them the ability to forcibly log out offenders Also the vr helmets interface with the brain it should be easily possible to add an log out option not requiring the use of your hands, which can t be blocked by other players. Btw what other player would complain about is the abysmal balance, Jason is a one man army in this book too, with two other players they solo an army of 100 players Talking about game design it is quite unappealing, seriously forcibly sitting there to watch their death dozens of times O Ej wtf hvad er det for en slutning Giv mig bog 3 nu Til alle elskere af computerspil g r dig selv en tjeneste og l s den her serie Selvom nogle dele af historien gjorde mig rundtosset af at rulle med jnene s er der s meget der g r op for det Loving it Not sure how to review this one There were multiple times in the story where I absolutely wasn t enjoying the listen at all The protagonist is an idiot, and so much of the game world just doesn t make any sense None of the battles have any consequence, so spending so much time on them is pretty irritating It ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, but at least it s an oh shit, what do we do now rather than crap, I wonder what s going to happen. If these books were half the length I might consider continuing on, but if the next book is a similar length I don t believe I ll pick it up The author spends far too much time on things that are either so obvious that it s insulting, or simply have no consequence And since I don t really care for any of the characters, I m not interested in their struggle.
