    "One of my favorite books of all times. I recommend this book to just about everyone. It was a book that got me into reading epic fantasy novels. It's so well written and addicting. I have reread this and the second book in the series several times and I almost never reread books. It's annoying that the third book to the series still hasn't, and may never, come out, but this book is so worth the read. Even if you're not currently a fan of epic fantasy this book may change your mind."

    "There are a lot of stories based on video game lore. This is not one of them. The story takes place over 50 years in the future when computer AI is highly advanced and gaming is truly immersive. When the main character of this book, Jason, enters the Awaken Online world he is in for a great surprise. In Awaken Online the player isn't exactly controlling an avatar, the player actually is the avatar. There are consequences for decisions, both rewards, and punishments. If a player decides to take on swordsmanship, for example, and practices swinging and slashing away at a practice dummy, experience points will become available. Strength, and dexterity might also increase. This may sound like every MMO you have ever heard of, but when you leave the game and realize that every muscle in your body hurts, will you think this is because you were laying on your bed too long, or will you understand that the game AI has managed to stimulate your muscles?"

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I do enjoy this story and it's easily keeping me on my toes. I wasn't sure whether I was going to like it, but I do! The protagonist is very relatable for me and his conundrum seems insurmountable, which is what I personally look for in a good book, and this is a good book."

    "In a world full of super powers, Felix has a pretty crappy one. He has the ability to modify any item he owns. To upgrade anything. Sounds great on paper. Almost like a video game. Except that the amount of power it takes to actually change, modify, or upgrade anything worthwhile is beyond his abilities. With that in mind, Felix settled into a normal life. A normal job. His entire world changes when the city he lives in is taken over by a Super Villain. Becoming a country of one city. A city state. Surprisingly, not a whole lot changed. Politicians were still corrupt. Banks still held onto your money. And criminals still committed crime. Though the black market has become more readily available. And in that not so black market, Felix discovers he has a way to make his power useful after all, and grasps a hold of his chance with both hands. Warning and minor spoiler: This novel contains graphic violence, undefined relationships/partial harem, unconventional opinions/beliefs, and a hero who is as tactful as a dog at a cat show. Read at your own risk."

    "A good book to read, although at chapter 8, it takes a twist. The book really should be labelled, part 1, which deals with Roman, our Main Character and his development there. Then from Chapter 8, should be labelled part 2, as Roman's friend Max becomes involved in his own story inside Arkon. Interesting book with more aimed at the happening of low level characters in the latter half."

It deals with changing how you think and go about things to attract "luck", but it wasn't all that insightful.
