    "Simple and slow"

    I just couldn't do it. I made it half way and that was it for me.

    The game world and game play is simple. Nothing original or fun. This is suppose to be a vr/mmorpg in the future (which should be light years ahead in game mechanics and interactions) and the author never made me feel that there was anything special. The NPCs, run by AI, were scripted and dull.

    The narration was slow and lacking, making the book even harder to get through. About a quarter way through I went to the kindle and that helped a little.

    The character dialogue seemed a little cardboard to me.

    "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.

    "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. &quot;Oh wow that was worth 2000 experience!&quot; Is that a lot in this game? I doubt it. &quot;Wh-What??? You killed a level SEVEN BEAR???? How!!!!&quot;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.)<br/><br/>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.

    "A most excellent story!"

    A really good story about love and friendship. All the elements you expect in a good story, villains and heroes, almost impossible Quest. it's all there.

    "Didn't get the Litrpg feel at all"

    I got an hour and a half into the book and it's not what I'm looking for when I think about a litrpg. I'm sure it will work for most people but the lack of details in a litrpg kills it for me.

    "Yawn"

    The only thing more boring then sitting and watching somebody play a video game is sitting and listening to somebody describe playing a video game.....

    "Old Man Wars meets Ready Player One"

    it was a great read, loved the characters, and the world building. Looking forward to the next one. Hope to get a good monk class character in the next one. Definitely lots of directions to take this series.
