    A fun, if somewhat short, dungeon core adventure This particular dungeon core style story meets Mr. Seiple's usual high quality standards. This story feels more like an intro than a full story within itself, but that isn't a bad thing. It sets the stage for the protagonist to start kicking ass and taking names. I definitely look forward to the next one! A fun, if somewhat short, dungeon core adventure This particular dungeon core style story meets Mr. Seiple's usual high quality standards.

    Book one Mistakes: I only found one that I'm sure wasn't done on purpose. The rest are just how one character talks. Plot: very interesting with a lot still left unknown. Characters: the MC is interesting. I look forward to seeing him grow. 8.5/10 Looking forward to book two. Book one Mistakes: I only found one that I'm sure wasn't done on purpose.

    If I had to sum this book up, it would be too many good plot lines, too little conclusion. The book has a great premise. I love the idea of it and couldn't wait to read it. Early on it was a little clunky with it's explanation and attempt at video game metaphors but I rolled with it gave it a shot. I was happy to see that once I accepted this, the plot began to grow naturally from it. The main issue with this novel is the frequent interludes where they cut to a different character's point of view.

I was happy to see that once I accepted this, the plot began to grow naturally from it. The main issue with this novel is the frequent interludes where they cut to a different character's point of view. Normally an author would use interludes to allow a large period of boring time to pass while showing something interesting that was happening in other parts of the world. This author uses this to pass about half of a day, and jumps to multiple different points of view throughout the story. This last part wouldn't normally be an issue but some of these new points of view have no effect on the main story. It's as if the author introduced five different points of view, intending for them to eventually come together... but just never got there. It leaves the book feeling unfinished and I hate that such a good premise ended on such a sour note. The ending is also quite weak using a bit of deus ex machina emergency backup plan to save the day that I couldn't see any references to throughout the story. It was rushed, weak, and frustrating. In the end I may give this series a second chance once the next book is released since I feel like several of the issues could be fixed by exploring these started plot lines but I doubt it will ever be a five star conclusion.

    As always I have yet to read a book by Mr. Seiple that I didn't enjoy. This guy can write. I loved this book and the entire Threadbare series. If you're reading this sir, thank you.

    Well written and entertaining This was a very well written beginning to a series. The characters were pretty well fleshed-out certainly not one-dimensional, and even the leading antagonists were sympathetic characters. The writing was mature and smooth, much more so than many of the books that come out in the litrpg sub-genre. I had a hard time putting it down to do real life and I can't wait for the next one.

    Ready for the next book Interesting concept. I liked the main character and his creative ways. He was thrown into a situation and had to overcome challenges with limited understanding and ability. It was fun and that makes it worth it to me.

    A mix of sci-fi post-apocalypse and dungeon-core base building. The interesting parts are the cyberpunkesque "grid" in a post-apocalypse world, the origins of the "hero", and the various groups around. Given that, the constraint of gamelit concepts over the central hero and "dungeon core" stand out and make it more jarring than it should be. This is a book that should have had a much lighter gamelit flavor than it has. The series still has much promise and will hopefully go far.

    Read this book! A full 5 stars from me. And no complaining about bad world building! Wynne wakes up, but where? All is NOT good in Wynne's life since he has woke up. It's pretty much one life-threatening tense moment every 10 pages. You really sympathize with him! EXCELENT WORLD BUILDING! Other people doing evil, for their very GOOD reasons! I can understand why Tyr is doing what he is doing. I would be doing the same frankly. Very good ending on book 1! I am hoping Book 2 is out already if not I'm Read this book! A full 5 stars from me.

    Worth it There are way more terrible examples of the dungeon core genre than good ones. I end up reading a lot of garbage. This book is a good reason to continue digging though. It was a well thought out world, with an engaging MC. The book hit the balance between the obsessive litRPG stat recitation and the "BAM! Everything is magic and easy!" approach some of the more Mary-Sue writers take. It also lacked the heavy handed explorations of human sexuality that detract from so many of the genre.

    Interesting, with possiblity. I found this story very interesting, the characters are somewhat unique, and there is much potential for further story telling to be found. Hopefully the author continues this story. Read this!

    I'm not generally a fan of the "dungeon core" genre, but this was written by Andrew Seiple, who has earned the benefit of the assay from me. Nor does this book disappoint. With nods to Zelazny's Nine Princes in Amber and even the schlock-classic Zardoz, Seiple turns out a masterful tale well worth reading.

    Note: I listened to the audio book but that isn't currently listed on Goodreads so I'm putting my review here. As such names may be misspelled. Don't judge this author by this book. I greatly enjoyed book 1 of his "Dire" series and his "Thread Bear" series. (Note: I haven't reviewed the Thread Bear series because I read it on royalroadl.com and I have no idea what changes, if any, were made to get it into book form. I do expect to enjoy the books in the future but am waiting for memory to fade so Note: I listened to the audio book but that isn't currently listed on Goodreads so I'm putting my review here.

I do expect to enjoy the books in the future but am waiting for memory to fade so I can come to them somewhat fresh.) The primary problem I have with this book is that the story is too lopsided. Basically there should be no realistic for the MC (Wine) to win. Wine thinks of himself as human even though he has been placed in a computer core. Wine has no memories and blames the current ruling AI, Juno, for this. Note we are never actually told if Juno is good or bad, it is just assumed she is bad based on Wine's lack of memories and Juno being in charge. Still, Juno is essentially a god, so how does an amnesiac with few resources challenge her? We don't know because virtually all this book does is introduce the reader to the problems the MC will have to solve later, which brings me to my second complaint: This book fails to tell a story. All that really happens is the MC has a few conversations, builds a few thing, learns a very few things about the world he is in, holds off a few barbarians, and that's it. The author spends a bunch of time setting up the conflict with Juno and another AI, Tyr, only for nothing to happen. Bottom line: If you enjoy dungeon/computer core stories I can see how you might enjoy this one, after all, readers in this area don't seem to mind stories without actual resolution since that is the vast majority of what gets written. Still, there are better things to read, by this author in particular.

    To be honest, I had forgot about this book until the release of Seiple's second book in the series was released. And I'm kicking myself for putting off reading this one for so long. This is a great execution of dungeon core mixed with a futuristic setting. For the uninitiated, dungeon core books feature a POV of a 'dungeon' or a building that defends itself from attack. Now, reading a story from the perspective of a building is an interesting concept (if not weird) but it's something that can be To be honest, I had forgot about this book until the release of Seiple's second book in the series was released. And I'm kicking myself for putting off reading this one for so long. This is a great execution of dungeon core mixed with a futuristic setting. For the uninitiated, dungeon core books feature a POV of a 'dungeon' or a building that defends itself from attack. Now, reading a story from the perspective of a building is an interesting concept (if not weird) but it's something that can be a huge challenge to make engaging. Buildings don't have heads to nod, lungs to sigh, or eyes to blink so it's hard to relate to such a character. In this book, the dungeon POV (or rather the bunker) is the electric copy of a human brain, so we can have a virtual equivalent to a character to relate to. This not only helps the reader understand the bunker core, Wynne, but also is integral to the futuristic setting of the book. The choice of a scifi setting is fairly unusual for the dungeon core genre, but it adds a lot of interest to the reading. Fantasy settings are the typical backdrop for dungeon core books and the common conceit for these stories is magic of one kind or another. Here, technology takes the place of magic and sets up the mechanisms through which Wynne interacts with his work. This choice, along with the post-apocalyptic setting, lends the story a tone different than its peers, which I found very interesting. The various character side-stories add a lot to the setting and plot, while presenting interesting vignettes into the bleak far-future. Overall, the book reads fast and fun while still having enough interesting ideas to engage the reader to think about the setting. The characters are compelling and really elevate the story despite its short word count. Highly recommended.

    While certain aspects of Bunker Core reminded me of The Station Core, this book isn't really much of a 'core' book. There is some 'dungeon' creation type stuff happening, and a very simple leveling up mechanics, but I wouldn't consider this a LitRPG. It's also got a pretty depressing setting that borrows a lot from Fallout, a game I like, but here causes a feeling of hopelessness I'm not terribly fond of. All and all it's a well written book, but I just couldn't get into it.

    Great book This is a great book to read in a rather interesting world. It also does one of the best things a great fiction should do, make you inspired to ask what would you do in there stead what are all the possibilities and what amazing things will happen next. The only things I morn is the books to short and that there needs to be a touch more depth in areas. That being said i sincerely hope for a sequel because it would be a shame for it to end where it had.

    Normally when I see gamelit or litRPG I just hit the back button but I'm a fan of author Andrew Seiple's DIRE series so I figured I'd at least give this one a try. If you ignore the eye-rolling "just like a videogame" stuff this is a pretty fun story with some interesting enough world building and characters that I'm now looking forward to the next book in the series.

    Easily my least favorite series by Andrew Seiple, and that is mainly because he is attempting to tell a dungeon core story, but he's not doing it better than anyone else. He certainly isn't telling the same dungeon core story that other authors have already told, but it's still the among least interesting of them that I've read. This is, of course, only my opinion.

    It's basically a dungeon core book, which is usually classified as LitRPG. The twist is that it's a science fiction scenario, not a fantasy scenario. The LitRPG elements are there, but not very strong. Nonetheless it's a pretty cool story. From a literary standpoint it's well written, well paced, etc. There are a very few, minor editing mistakes, but not enough to be distracting.

    Pretty awesome story Love the worlds he builds. His story arcs are solid and his MCs are tough minded and/or determined rather than over-powered. He could use another edit pass, but it's mostly things you can figure out. And commas. It seems like even editors don't know how to use commas properly. Off to read book two!

    I diddn't really like it that much sadly. The growth of the dungeon isn't really clear since it's not linear but talent tree based which tells the reader exactly nothing. Each second or third chapter was another random and possibly unknown interlude character who just dragged on and on. I hope the next one get's better. I diddn't really like it that much sadly.

    Good post apocalyptic core story An interesting take on a post apocalyptic situation for a core with a background mystery we see some pieces of every so often. I like the protagonist, he's not over powered or whiny and is taking a practical approach to his unexpected situation. I'm looking forward to reading more about him and the world the story is set in.

    I have never read a "core" book before now, and I was highly skeptical when getting this book. However, I was pleasantly surprised! The initial mystery sucked me in and then I really grew attached to the central AI character. Overall, very good story, and I am ready for the sequel!

    Ending sucks It isn't a cliffhanger, but the ending still sucks and is a set up for the next book. The extra scenes of several other characters had nothing to do with this book and are a setup for future books.

    This book has a story that contains a lot of my favorite themes in sci-fi (AI's, mind uploads and nanotech) and litrpg (dungeon core), mixed with a great narrator and a likable enough MC. My only gripe was that it ended too soon and left one or two loose threads.
