Project Daily Grind (Mirror World Book #1) by Alexey Osadchuk
This is a new book in the LitRPG genre.
The ads enthused, ""The virtual lands of Mirror World await you! Live out your most secret dreams in our world of Sword and Sorcery! Become a Great Wizard or a Famous Warrior! Build your own castle, tame a dragon, conquer a kingdom! All those desperate, lonely and insecure - Mirror World offers you a chance!"
But Oleg isn't meant to become a great wizard or a famous warrior. He'll never have a castle of his own. Neither will he ever tame a dragon. And he's definitely not the type to conquer a kingdom, however virtual it may be.
Oleg is doomed to toil away in the recesses of Mirror World's mines. His goal is to raise enough money for a heart transplant for his dying six-year-old daughter. The clock is ticking. Will he make it?

The translator did a great job bringing this story to life. It is well written, the actual story is interesting and I had fun reading it on amazon. if you have kindle unlimited you can read the whole thing there for free.
Definitely a worthy read in the LitRPG category.
Not as exciting as some other stories in the genre, but its well written and engaging (aka OP toons, at least as of book 2 ending, there is fast progression though), and interesting enough to hold a sort of slice-of-life in a world with immersive tech. With enough crumbs of deep plot both in game and outside to keep you engaged with the MC and those around him. All in All I would recommend it (book 4 is soon to be released, just bought book 3 to read it. So this review is written as I finished book 2 off of amazon kindle for PC)
comparison: Its a lot like the 'way of shaman' book series, but without some of the ridiculous angst and circular thinking that plagues that particular set of novels( book 5-6 of that series)
It's a wonderful story about a guy in a bad situation, being given things he doesn't deserve nor did he earn, and being a jerk about it. He then auto-pilots his way to victory. Very well written though. I'll read the sequel for that alone.
