How Annoying Are the Names? A Fantasy Novel Rating System

April 23, 2010

Welcome to the Nugget’s How Annoying Are the Names? Fantasy Novel Rating System, inspired by a couple of fantasy books I’ve read recently.

How Annoying Are the Names Rating System
Not Annoying at All – Barely Noticed ‘Em: Good book
Mildly Annoying at First, but Quickly Got Used to Them: Decent book
Quite Annoying – Never Got Used to Them: Bad book
Hai! I’z a Fant’Asy Nov’el and I haz the Nam’ez to Prove I’t: Toss the book, all you’ll remember about it was how irritating the names were

Now, to be clear, I’ve always loved the fantasy genre. But unfortunately, as a nugget gets more aged and fermented, I find I have less and less patience with bad fantasy. Which is sad, because… as in any genre, the bad outweighs the good. 😦
