Publisher's Summary

The Second World is a mire of intrigue; the game's creators have left several back doors permitting them to terminate anyone at will, and an unlikely sequence of events has brought someone unsuspecting into their field of attention.

One player has managed to upset the game world's balance, and now he's hunted by everyone. Every clan wants to recruit him for his achievements while other powers want him for their own, more sinister purposes. Now Ros must contend against an unseen enemy backed by the world's most powerful corporation while relying on only himself and his few trusted allies. The stakes have never been higher....

Don't miss the final book in The Weirdest Noob trilogy!

crappy

I really enjoyed the first two books. but this one I struggled. some much time was wasted on explaining his new companions stats for no reason....two of them we never saw again, then the ending was rushed. feels like there should be a 4th book to tie up open plots. but it's only a trilogy .

Not as good as the first two books in the series.

It seems as if the author was in too much of a hurry. The ending especially was rushed.

Mediocre. Worth it to finish the story...but

Well I was disappointed there was not much character development in this one. I did feel the desire to at least stick with the story to finish it, but I didn’t like it nearly as much as the first.

Just not good

it was difficult to finish, in fact there were multiple times I just fast forwarded to the end of the chapter because they were rambling on about something not important. If they started on chapter 11 or 12, which ever one, where he enters the city I would have rated this higher.

I really enjoyed their first two books, but this was painful. It's like the first half of the book, they are trying to fill up pages because the book won't be long enough and by the time they get to the meat of the story they have to shorten it because it's about to be too long.

I also believe that the narrator's straight forward, fast paced style didn't help in some of those painful areas. Was I scratching my head for 20 minutes because the writers were going back and forth, seemingly contradicting themselves, or did the narrator blow through comas and pauses? I probably spent a third of the book going, huh?

I did jump from the beginning of chapter 7 to chapter 11 or 12- can't remember, but it's where he finally gets to the city- because I couldn't take the ramblings any more.

I'm not sure he ever made it to the mage guild to collect all of his bonuses from achievements...

Only read if you must finish the story

There was a shocking lack of detail in this book compared to the others. Not in the stats piece, which should really be less repetitive, but in the world building, character building, story, and the ending. This book should have been 2 books so the author could take the time to fully d
flesh everything out. As it is, we didn't even get a good epilogue, which is sorely needed.

No story progression

Most of the book is just rambeling recap of the story whole chapters can be skipped without any real loss of conten.

poor third book in the trilogy

I had high hopes after the second book. I struggled to keep my interest to the story. I felt parts of the book left the story spinning its wheels and put me to sleep. The narrator has a strange mouth breathing inhalation noise during the recording. I kept wanting to wipe my mouth. the antagonist's racial rant, I could have done without. returned for credit (all 3)

I can’t finish this book , stop saying one!

The author really needs to open up his vocabulary. I swear, any time he describes anything about the game.
Every single sentence has the word “one” in it .

“One would think that one’s self would be aware of one’s situation when one walked into a situation as this”

well, it's over

Deeply underwhelming, thin characters, underdeveloped story.

This trilogy is not something I will bother to re-read, but I may try other materials the author has produced as I feel there's something in their writing that I appreciate.

I like a story that finishes

I am tried and sick of book series that go to infinite, always finishing in a cliff hanger.
but a fan pleasing epilogue would have been a nice touch.
