Have you ever read a book that was fairly well written, but incredibly tedious to read?  Or spent several days reading a story with quite a few disappointing, eye-rolling scenes and an unsatisfactory ending?

Well, Taylor Leigh's book Long Division fit that bill for me.  I just finished this sci-fi m/m book about an evil corporation developing a gaming device to ultimately take over human minds and enslave the world.  Unfortunately, I can not get back those wasted hours.  It was a 600+ page novel that was about 400 pages too long.  Toss in some "oh please" *frowny face*  moments, and some frustrating, hair-yanking moments at the actions of the protagonists (quit with the lip service and self-introspection at inappropriate moments - either commit to the fight or don't).  An extremely disappointing and poorly explained ending put the icing on the cake for me, making me express in writing my disdain, just to get it out of my system.
