Dullards Play Bland Game Badly, Are Praised

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Fundamentally flawed.


Has Last Horizon: Beta turned you off from other books in this genre?

This was my second book in this genre. The other was okay. If the next is like this one, it will be my last.


What aspect of Jonathan Yen’s performance would you have changed?

He was fine.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Extreme Boredom.


Any additional comments?

This story completely missed the point of this genre. With the potential to showcase an mmo idea completely unfettered by marketing, real life, and financial constraints, we get a group of retirees (which is very strangely emphasized in the book) playing an extremely bland game that has only three classes and three professions and its BORING. Really. REALLY. BORING. They do the simplest things and its a WONDER to their eyes. "Oh wow that was worth 2000 experience!" Is that a lot in this game? I doubt it. "Wh-What??? You killed a level SEVEN BEAR???? How!!!!"Nevermind the completely insane underreaction to a sexual assault within ten minutes of them getting into the game (which they literally don't get into for several hours. Before that its some old guy reading a forum. Yes, you have found it. Forum Reading: The Novel.)

When I see a book like this that presently has a 4.4 star rating, I question the integrity of the star rating system. Here's a big fat 1-star for the sane readership.

Corny!!

If ned Flanders and Mr Rodgers wrote a book together. I believe this is what it would sound like. Silly jokes that make you cringe. And just immature dialogue. The author is either really old, really young. Or some weird basement dweller.
