Insufferable

What disappointed you about Ultima Thule?

I could no longer torture myself and had to end the story half way through. At this point the character has yet to make it out of the office building. Not only do all the characters seem boring but the narrator, Jim Roberts, reads as if a bed time story to small children.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jim Roberts’s performances?

No.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No.
