    "AlterWorld is a very weird audiobook and I think it misses the bar. The only good thing about it is that it's based on MMORPGs, but the narration and the story are just beyond terrible."

    "The book has potential but it seems too much like an RPG gamer fan fiction novel. I haven't read fanfiction since I was a teen and I'm also not a fan of gamer type RPG anything"

    "AlterWorld (Play to Live) is considered by some to be a new science fiction genre of literature known as LitRPG. The book is set in virtual reality and depicts the characters being stuck in a role playing game. The virtual world proves to be just as dangerous as the real world so being permanently locked inside the game turns out to not be as appealing as some imagined."

    "cation Date: July 18, 2014 A new pandemic - the perma effect - has taken over Earth of the near future. Whenever you play your favorite online game, beware: your mind might merge with the virtual world and dump its comatose host. Woe be to those stuck forever in Tetris! And still they're the lucky ones compared to those burning alive eternally within the scorched hulls of tank simulators. But some unfortunates - the handicapped and the terminally ill, shell-shocked army vets, wronged crime victims and other society misfits - choose to flee real life willingly, escaping to the limitless world of online sword and sorcery MMORPGs. Once a seasoned gamer and now a terminal cancer patient, Max grasps at this final chance to preserve his life and identity. So he goes for it - goes for the promise of immortality shared with a few trusty friends and the woman he loves. Together they roam the roads of AlterWorld and sample its agony and ecstasy born of absolute freedom."

    "Written from a paternalistic perspective, and as the other comments state, the pro-Russian commentary gets old fast. "

    "The first book is OK but the series as such isn't good enough to keep reading. The pro Russian pathos is annoying."
