Inhaltsangabe

When Timothy finally found work as a tester for a popular online MMORPG, his lifelong dream was fulfilled. And now, he earns money (and pretty good money, at that) just for doing what he loves - playing a beautiful and realistic computer game. But he isn't some typical run-of-the-mill player, like the millions of others. Timothy is truly capable and talented, and stands out from the crowd. In fact, the faceless masses consider him far too lucky and successful. Many players dislike him for his achievements and hunt him down ruthlessly just because they feel envious or because he looks different. So, what is he to do now that the whole world is against him and his only allies are his beloved sister and a few trusted friends? Make peace? Sink down to their level? Or just fly ever higher on the wings of success? It's all up to Timothy!

why?

why does he not describe any character or action scene in detail? Every discussion, every opportunity for depth, every action scene is dealt with in a calm, observing manner, without drama or feeling of immersion.
I am used to flat characters, but the action scenes really annoyed me in this book - for example: a pirate boardingparty is on its way, 12 undying aboard, 12 possibilities to make an interesting fight, 12 higher-leveled killing machines to challenge the authors ingenuity and creativity to find ways counteracting the enemies - 3 drowning and 9 surrendering?! Seriously? And the same happens in every other situation, in one way or another: being kidnapped? A flashbang, a SWAT-team and 2min later, everythings fine. An all out Attack on him within throwing-distance? Who cares, let me just look at this dying NPC-dwarf because that's so much more interesting and makes the character look heroic, while in truth the whole story is just not that well thought through.

How to play an unusual character great

playing a goblin with herbalist profession and a vampyric curse is not easy and that's what makes this LitRPG so interesting: the emphasis is on "adventure" and not only "combat". Of course you always know that wharever happens it will turn out good (too easy) but you will be surprised how the situations are resolved. It's maybe " light" literature but i am still waiting for the next book to be released!
