Review(s)

Alice_A_Kavanaugh: The story is quite interesting. It mixes in a fun and attractive way two themes that attract a lot of attention: video games and zombies. It’s like ordering a zombie apocalypse at home and not being able to stop until it’s finished … then you ask what’s next? It is refreshing and very well built placing us in the video game without any problem. Furthermore the characters are charismatic and reflect a very credible reality.

Sento: I’m sure if I just missed it but there’s no going into the game or anything.. I found the writing close together and tbh I got confused really fast. Some words like evident are overused, like in the very first paragraph of the first chapter. The characters are very unique and development is ok. I recommend hiring an editor because I see a lot of well.. grammar errors, etc. Keep writing though, your creative expression is a very healthy habit!

Zoro_The_Dark: Okay so let me start from here,
The story is really really good! The author has a great sense of humour. There are a few grammatical errors in the writing quality here and then and I would encourage the author to correct those, but, those mistakes can be possible since the author’s native language isn’t English and the writing quality is still understandable. The update stability of this book is quite fine. The world building along with character designs of this novel is a really really great thing about it. I like how the author adds such small details to the story. The one who is reading this review, I recommend you to definitely try this novel.
Thats it!

theanneleen: I have read the novel until the third chapter but the first chapter kinda threw me off. There were a lot of grammatical errors and for me, I would love to know more about the character like how he looks, etc., so that whenever the focus shifts on another person, I could still picture the MC in mind. I sometimes get lost track of who is talking or what the scene is all about. You could also be more descriptive in world building like using the five senses, so that readers could immerse in the world you are building especially that it is in virtual reality. ZOMBIES IN VR is quite interesting.
I’m not perfect and I’m sorry for being so frank, but I believe that this could be improved. Base on the reviews readers are liking how the story has been progressing. I am not really a fan of zombies, but if you continue to improve, I’m sure you’ll do great. This is just my honest opinion.

CodeW: I’ve only read up to Chapter 7. I will be planning to read the next chapters. 
A general pros and cons review: 
Pros: 
Wow, this story is fun to read. I guess it’s a unique take( don’t quote me on this, I haven’t read/see much of the VR game genre besides SAO) on the VR game genre. Instead of being reluctantly trapped in the game, the players enjoy it. 
The action scenes are also well done. The monsters are really well described. 
The world is built well! 
Cons: 
Grammar. Sometimes, your grammar mistakes can throw people off. 
Your dialogue formatting could be a lot better. Sometimes, I had to look at the paragraph twice in order to tell who was speaking. Adding quotation marks and separating the dialogues into new paragraphs would certainly help a lot. 
I enjoyed reading your work. Thanks, Anotoki!

kakigori: Hi! I’m going to be reviewing your story. 
I’ll start off by saying that it has its own charm? I’ll be upfront here – certain things aren’t really my groove, so that naturally gets points docked. Nothing on you, of course. It’s a personal preference thing. Disclaimer over, let’s get into the meat of things. 
Anachronisms and suspension of disbelief aside, it’s very easygoing. Quite carefree, really. It does come off as the sorta thing you’d read if you wanna wind down after a long day at work or school because it’s written with this nonchalant style. I mean, quoting old Vines does help out with that a lot. 
On that note, the casual references he makes do serve a purpose besides being just ‘haha funni meme ref 69420’. It’s a decent reminder of how this is all one big game and the repercussions of the actions they take won’t carry the same weight in the real world. 
So yeah. Here’s my review. I hope it helped you out. I’m not at liberty to recommend stories like this to people because I don’t read books from this genre an awful lot. But for what it’s worth? Giving this a shot definitely won’t hurt.
