To much gaming rubbish

Story was okay, but 15-20 minutes several times during the book to list levels is insane.

Entertaining & Satisfying Conclusion to Threadbare

This is the third book of the Threadbare series, a litRPG book featuring a toy golem who, through serendipity, persistence, and lots of puns, manages to have a very satisfying adventure across all three books. The imagery of this book, brought to life by Tim Gerard Reynolds (one of my favorite narrators), is delightful; I smiled a lot and even laughed out loud on occasion from imagining some of the antics the plush golem and his followers get in to, from hilarious conversations between the golems who have had the human experience and those that haven't, to the idea of a swarm of plush golems covering a bewildered steam knight.

Pros: Smiles and laughs. This LitRPG story does not take itself too seriously and throws in jokes at every turn; for instance, at one point there is a tamed snake named Sloopy and he is encouraged to hang on to something by his tamer, and another point there is a giant with a blue shirt and a pickaxe attempting to knock the floor out from under someone else... with a subsequent reference to Spleef. At the same time, the story is a fun ride by itself; the intelligent but still sometimes naive golem has to solve interesting problems and does not really have preconceptions to hinder his solution-finding efforts, since he is only about 5 years old and spent most of that time stuck in one spot. The book keeps the reader wondering what will happen next, and what Threadbare and his newly-bodied allies will figure out in the strange world they live in and the odd rules it imposes on them. Most of the action scenes were solidly interesting too; sometimes, I have trouble paying attention to those scenes in other books if the fighting doesn't involve any interesting problems. I hope the author and narrator will work together in the future to bring more stories in this setting, perhaps using Reason as a protagonist.

Cons: Not too many. The cussing still feels awkward within the combination of the story and TGR's narration of it, as I mentioned in previous reviews. Same with some of the bawdy jokes, though others are fine and funny. There are some plot holes, but the lightness with which the book takes itself makes those feel insignificant. Not enough cons to drop the story a star.

This is tied with NPCs by Drew Hayes far the most entertaining LitRPG series I have listened to. Granted, I think this is only about the fifth LitRPG series in my library, but still, before this I only ran across one hit so I was hesitant to try it again. I recommend trying this series out, preferably from the first book if you have a choice, even if you have had poor LitRPG experiences in the past.

Mehhh

The story isn't bad, but it goes too far away from silly and fun. For the types of characters the book has, it's pretty bland. And is it just me or is the bear dumber now that he's supposed to be smart? Everything just drags on in this story and I'd rather it be over. Didn't care about the dwarves (nothing really worth noting), didn't care about the dungeon, didn't care about the flashback after it, just guhhhhhhhhhhh please kill me already. I try to use entertaining, well-paced fiction to stay awake, and this isn't helping matters. During the dungeon, which was kinda pointless anyway (just getting rid of an annoying, cliche character temporarily), all I remember after the fact was "isn't this the same garbage, except without a funny cat lady and a bear that was lovable because it didn't say stupid, boring crap?"

The story use enough to get me through the book, but MEHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHGHH

Sew.. here's the ting...

Ask me what series starts off so clever, so amazing, so wonderful that you couldn't stop turning the pages, but with the caveat that the story absolutely cannot sustain itself for the next two books. Only one series comes to mind and that's this one. The Threadbare series starts off about a cute inanimate toy bear struggling to come to life and understanding his surroundings. It's a wonderful all ages adventure story with a tragic end. The rest of the series is so bogged down in a pile of useless secondary characters with paper thin motivations. I just didn't care for anyone other than Celia, Threadbare, the cat, Miss Fluffbear, and the evil King. Book 3 now combines all the useless fluff from book 2. But you do see this thing thread of book 1 slowly emerging. Like someone pulling a treasure chest out of a murky swamp via a thin rope. There it is! The ending! What you've really waited for since Book 1. When it arrives it is as sweet as book 1. So in my opinion, Book 1 could have had 1 additional chapter, the ending of Book 3 and I would have been fine with it. Now that ending encompasses all these moral questions regarding golems that could have been cut out. It was NOT interesting. Neither was "Animus blade! Animus blade! Animus blade!" This is just dumb. I don't care about RPG moves. The story was so much better when it wasn't so laden in LitTRPG tropes and nonsense about jobs, and skills, and this extraneous crap. The main villains had no backstory, yet they talked a whole lot, then suddenly at the very end they have some kind of additional world or back story to them but who cares? You can't shoehorn that in at the last second. Oh look secondary characters have a romance, but how, what's their romance about, … wasted lines. For that I fault the author. He had a gem here and it was squandered. What DOES save this series from a flatout 1 star for books 2 and 3 is the performance by Tim Reynolds which is SUPERB. You couldn't ask for a better narrator. He really threw his all into the multiple secondary characters.

Awesome

The whole story was fantastic a bit quirky and over all a great read the audio quality dropped in the last book making it much less enjoyable but still a compelling story

Felt kind of rushed

Not as many puns this time around, but they're still there. Some questions and threads tied up, but still a decent amount of loose ends. Though the book even creates some new threads for another potential book? Eh. The other books felt like they were gradually building towards more and more, an then is a swift curve towards the end. I dunno. If you want a silly, punny LitRPG with lots of skill usage and levels with a good bit of violence, then this may be the series for you.

One of the best lit-rpg’s I have listened to yet.

Very captivating story. Tim Gerald Reynolds is tied as one of my favorite narrators so I may be a bit biased. But he can really bring a story to life. Andrew Seiple is an excellent writer and I will definitely be listening to more of his works.

Yup, I liked it.

I've listened to the whole series at least three times. I might as well give the author/narrator their due,

I love this one

Was a bit heavyer than the other 2 books, so a bit harder to follow a long. but it was more of the same teddybear :)
