Asleep - A LITRPG story
A next-generation MMO, where levels don't come easy and there is no fast travel. Ken finds himself trapped in the strange world while asleep in a coma. Just when things can't get stranger, he is approached by the AI that controls the game who comes to make a bargain. In this world, Ken must help beleaguered NPCs find ways to provide better side quests that players actually want to do. Failure to do so could mean his status of Awoken being revealed to doctors who want to experiment on him.
While this story does have an MC that becomes a female avatar when he enters the game world, there is nothing sexual bout it. For this reason, I have decided to ultimately not to use the Gender-Bender tag. The reason this exists in my story is to highlight some of the stereotypes that occur for female characters in MMOs.

At times it's hard to believe that this is this guy's first book. The first few chapters were really nice. It was later on when the first combat chapter was released that I was forced to accept that it was actually his first book. But he was very open to my suggestions and by the end he had improved by leaps and bounds. There are chapters that I deem was unnecessary, like the catapocalypse one, but that's just my personal opinion I guess.
The story was like a rollercoaster ride. It had its ups and downs but it was very enjoyable. Some of the characters lacked the depth that I was expecting in them, like Tim and the other Heroes. While some other characters that I wished to see where never seen again. But apart from that the central characters were well built and the relationship between them well written. What I loved the most was how the author explained the different types of food within the game world, it was very tantalising.
The author also had written some scenes that were beyond my wildest imaginations. Like the final boss fight at Jupiter's dungeon. It was not how I expected it to go. The author also tied up all loose ends at the end by explaining why certain characters acted like they did or said what they said. All in all it was a nice book to read.
Player In a virtual world with an A.I. I little bit of dungeon core action, a little bit of world building. I little bit of romance. I little bit of everything. It is a great read and you should give it a read or binge read as I did.
A charming read by first-time author, Kos. No harems, but plenty of adventure, friendship, and love. A heartwarming story that was very funny!
Humor was mostly of the slap-stick or pun variety, enough to make me groan at times.
Highly recommended for anyone who wants to read something uplifting. AAA+++
