    Great ingredients, awful execution College life, evil organisation, dungeons, main character with super powers, high stakes tournament, a little romance, mysterious powers, an easily hated antagonist, and a LitRPG system that affects life.With all the elements, you’d expect the story to be a page turner. Instead, it’s a bland, almost thoughtless story with little flavours and lazy execution, though I suppose if you’re just looking for something to kill time with, this can be a masochistic alternative

    Spoilers below!!!Good story idea with some big plot holes and editing that seemed rushed near the end of the book.Plot holes I found: 1 a single cup of coffee flung from a moving car supposedly had enough in it to soak the MC, soak completely through his backpack, and friend his phone in his pocket causing it to spark and smoke when he tried to use it.2 Gets a speed reading type skill and never used it to read the guide book. This causes him all sorts of problems that should have been easily avoided.3 For a supposed gamer he needed everything spelled out for him.I think the author rushed to get this published and it hurt the story.The games at the end felt really rushed as there were only three rounds. Seems like it would be longer with such a big prize.Three rounds, a race, a castle defense round, and then team on team fights.The race was a cool idea, but execution was weak and lacking, just seemed like it was used to eliminate a lot of teams.Same with the castle defense round. Really nobody but the MC is able to figure out how to play it right?Final round, teams must right each other. MC's team gets into a few lackadaisical fights before being challenged by the BIG BAD GUY and his team. When the big bad guy reveals himself and tried to flee the MC freezes him, but runs up to taunt him and gets blown up. The rest of the right is uninspired.This story needed more time put into it as the idea is great. However execution is lacking.

    This author wrote two other LitRPGs. The books aren't bad but they aren't great either. It's one of those generic cookie cutters with a minor twist/gimmick and a stupid MC to push the plot forward or just plain old stupid. Anyone who played a RPG knows not to screw up and mess with their character's skills and stats without thinking twice. You can when you and reroll them but not when it is your only character. But nope, MCs by this author is impulsive as f***. I'm not asking the guy to min-max. I am just asking for a normal average gamer MC who actually thinks and not dimwitted. Other than that, books by this author are okay. Pretty good integration of turning real world into a RPG though.For example, the MC supposedly saved up 5 levels worth of skill points for his future class/role. The MC's advisor is supposedly advising and helping him on using those skill points. And he KNOWS this. 3 days later, he claims to have saved up these skill points for "oh shit" moments. Sure, why not. But he blows the skill points on totally unrelated skills, unrelated to the class they already decided. And why does he need that new skill? He doesn't. Did I mention that when you have a romantic interest in front of you, the thing you should do is google up going to a beach and perv out on pictures of sexy girls in bikini?Yeah, this author gives you ridiculous, impulsive and illogical crap like that just to force humour or something in the story.It is very aggrevating.

    Great idea, but needed better editing. I don't like the way the Author uses present tense. It made it hard to get into the book. I also think the leveling needed to be better thought out. The main adversary is a college student who is only Level 7 when our hero first meets him in the convenience store, and a few months later he is Lvl 13 when we see him again. Meanwhile our hero gets to level 7 in a few months practically without any help while being completely new to the Game System. How is it that all the college students he meets that have grown up in Game System families were also around this level when he met them? The story itself seems to show how implausible that is when he goes dungeon diving with a few teenagers (14-16 yrs old) that start out around that level and gain 'a couple of levels' in only one weekend. Conversely, his employer is way overpowered at her low level. Other failures to make a proportional system really forced me to suspend belief to enjoy the story. I am giving it 4 stars since it was a very enjoyable plot even with all the obvious amateur problems. It is a shame though; if those wrinkles had been ironed out before the book went to print, this series may have been something very special.

    Interesting Start I really enjoyed this book and look forward to seeing more down the line. Some parts that were said to take place over a period of time were a bit slower than most progressions I’ve seen in similar works of the same genre. It wasn’t bad just a little different. The progression the MC made seemed a bit slow compared to the amount of time and work put in. Based on my understanding of the world progression. I really like the MC. He has a sort of personal feel that I was turned towards for some reason. The family bits/interactions in particular I really enjoyed.

    Outstanding! Funny, and Very Clever Outstanding story, humor, action, and editing. Bonus points especially for a non-WASP protagonist (gasp!), and the main LitRPG plot device being a twisty bit of awesomeness that I’ve never seen done before. Very very clever, that. The humor and (geek) cultural references were well done too, and always welcome. (The food references were welcome too!) Truly an excellent work. More please. If you are a LitRPG fan you really need to read this. It will make you smile. Highly recommended!

    I'm not going to continue with the series. Too many illogical choices and actions by the main character. There were times I had to force myself to continue reading instead of closing it out and moving on to the next book in my 'to read' folder. The best thing I can say about the book is that the author and proof-readers paid attention. If I remember correctly, I only found one, maybe two, instances of an editing error, which is rare enough these days, where it seems that some authors completely skip over that step and rush it to publication.

    Its amateurish and need good editor.Its start Great with : secret society of Users, powerful level 100 with unbelievable power, high stakes game that result in Assasination, near bankrupt corporation that failed to get any employee and ended up with whimper with : supposedly professional team who failed to grasp base building and create all-melee team, Users who create pick-up group managed to compete with corporate team, and strong referee which undermine reasons why everybody fear assassination and badly written romance.

    Fantastic start to a seriesProject Alpha is a great take on the LitRPG genre. It's very well written, with excellent character and world building. Even better, the editing is top notch, especially for a first book!Having the story set in the real world is actually something you don't see often for these types of stories, it's usually all in a VR game, or another world. The twists with the dungeons is very creative and I can see a lot of fun coming from them.

    Great addition to the litrpg genre. If you have never read any books in this class, this isn't a bad place to start. It suffers from incomplete editing as typical of the genre, but it's funny, interesting and a darned good tale. It has some issues with consistency, but it isn't enough to blunt the enjoyment. Overall, it plays out well, and I have no problem recommending it to anyone who wants to be entertained for a while.

    Fast paced funA twist on LitRPG genre, instead of some massive disaster causing a gaming system to come to earth, the System is already here for those who can utilize it. No destroyed Earth, just an added dimension to our already existing reality. Anthony stumbles into a low level dungeon, gains a level and suddenly starts seeing gaming screens and new skills. Very enjoyable.

    A great readI enjoyed Project Alpha quite a bit. It had a very slow start and the scene with the coffee slashing on him and soaking him completely was preposterous enough that I almost dropped it, but I’m really glad I kept going! If not for the weak start to the book and the obviously reaching plot tool in the coffee scene, I’d give this 5-stars. I’m eager to see book 2 and will most definitely be picking it up when released!

    FunOk I typically don't write reviews. And no not because I am lazy or have huge hands and it's a pain to type but because I have to write dribble.Great book. Rock solid LitRPG story. Interesting development and loved how main character reads LitRPG stories. Solid game mechanics also. Well worth the money and great time sinkSee had to wright that amount to just say great LitRPG story.

    Great storyGood story, well thought out world, interesting character development. Overall I only spotted 1 typo (loc 1903, it says neted instead of netted), I started and finished this book on the same day. I recognise the MCs (small spoiler) absorption ability from another series, but I liked how he used it. It wasn't particularly OP like in the other. Can't wait for the next book.

    I enjoyed this a lotI liked the family touches, breakfast with mom, the MC's kid sister. I found this one more wholesome and touching than the standard fare. A lot of anime and game references and just a bit of name dropping. It was a little slow at the beginning and had a great pace for the rest of it. Finishing it I felt like I would coming out of a good PG adventure movie. I recommend this one. Not a AAA blockbuster. Well put together. Gratz to the author.

    Excellent LitrpgA solid start to what I hope is a long series. Mejia continues to entertain and is a credit to the genre. The gaming elements were detailed enough to be interesting without getting bogged down. Characters and their motivations compelling. And the pop culture references were a delight. That season two of Firefly plug made my inner Browncoat cheer.

    It was ok.The story was ok. With that being said this was my first time reading a RPG Literary novel. It was slow at first, but picked up in the end. To be honest, it really wasn’t my sort of thing, but if you like literary RPG’s, then you might like this. It would have better if there was more action at the beginning.

    Guy gains skills and abilities in real life. Instanced dungeons provide exp and loot. If you like stories like the gamer, the gam3, or life in the north then you will love this. Very strong litrpg if a little corny and inarticulate at times

    Great bookOnce I started reading I couldn't put down the book down. Very interested twist on role playing genera. Cannot wait for the next book. Took a gamble and bought the book instead of reading it for free. It was well with the purchase price.

    DecentI liked the magic/game system alot and the fact it's set in a present/future time and not in some medival world. However, this book is probably better suited for the YA audience. Lots of cringy romance and blushing teenagers. The end felt wiered, small and inconsequential.

    Awsome!!I like to read about strong Main characters in the Litrpg novels I read, not necessarily overpowered but definitely not weak. This story however, despite not having a strong protagonist, made up for it with a clever one.A very good read in my opinion.

    Level UpNot a bad start to a series that seems to be a mash up of Buffy/The Matrix and Harry Potter!Would have given 4 stars but the use of Arschloch as a family name losers 1 star! Really Arschloch! However I did enjoy the adventure and await for the 2nd instalment

    The main character is an idiotSpoiler ahead -The main character is told repeatedly to read an introductory manual about the System that he finds himself a part of and fails repeatedly to do so. Also, there are a fair number of typos early on in the book.

    Nice!Very good story! Has elements of many different games, and incorporates IRL with games\dungeons very seamlessly. Written by a huge fan of the genre, you can't go wrong with this excellent story! I await the next one eagerly!!!

    Engaging story, easy to readRPG lit is very hard to write entertainingly and still incorporate the details. Mejia has done very well indeed with a likable realistic hero and family. Definitely worth your time.

    A nice coming-of-age / Boy Meets Girl StoryA fun adventure story, with a unique take on the RPG in IRL theme. The one thing I would want to change is that it is written in present tense, and it was so jarring that I was ejected from the story a few times.

    A lot of funThis was a lot of fun to read. The blend for real world and game world was on point.No overly sexualized cat girls, AI, robots, or.. What have you.The cooking recipes were a bit odd, but they still added to the story.

    Fun!I enjoyed the idea and use of common RPG ideas. While I prefer no profanity in books as it detracts from talented prose, the author did a great job of weaving stories. I also liked the recipes!
