This is a good start to a great series, the main character, Darwin, is cool. His life is a mystery, and he really takes it in stride when he is mysteriously sucked into his favorite video game. It is hilarious when he goes after mobs with just a spoon while wearing a bathrobe. The book is well written, and is witty. It has some excellent fight scenes.
The only point that it drags is when it swells on a race of aggressive winged expansionists. I get that eventually the flying female will have some importance to Darwin's life, but it just always seemed to pull the story down when things weren't focused on the king or Darwin. Either way, this is really a minor detail, but I disliked her so much I had to drop a star of each line over all. My kids loved this book, and my wife laughed outloud in several spots (She is a WOW player, and she snickered throughout the book).
It is a great start to a good series. Can't wait for more.

I bought this audiobook having already read the entire series on Kindle. I wanted to see how the audio held up against the images and voices I'd formed in my mind. I'm often disappointed when books I love get made as movies or series.
But in this case, I was impressed. I listened while driving cross country. The imagery, humor, and the well-done accents had me drawn in to the point where I nearly ran myself out of gas.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story, dry humor, and solid game elements mixed in.
