I'm morbidly curious as to how someone got a whole book out of Mario.
(I suppose it's dumb to be baffled by that, since they got several seasons of cartoons out of Mario, but what the hey.)

Is Mega Man not an option? Because I want to vote for Mega Man.

Seems like the responsible answer.

I readed it dead. Now I vote for Zelda.

How many of these have idiot boy inserts? I read Blaster Master as a kid, so I know that one does. I think there was a Ninja Gaiden book, too.

All of them do, they were there to make the books count as hint guides, which is how FX Nine was able to write fanfiction for money without getting anyone's lawyers all hot and bothered.

I'm curious to see if it's the same Mario book that I had as a kid, so I'm gonna vote for that.

Ninja Gaiden and Infiltrator didn't have Boy Insert either. I think it's weird that Blaster Master did, since the main character is pretty much already Boy Insert.

Wow, what a weak-sauce ending...

As for what's next? Either Mario or Zelda. But weren't those "choose your fate" type books? Though that could be interesting here...

Oh, sorry, I thought that "idiot boy insert" meant the hints inserted at the end of every chapter that were generally either really vague or really obvious.

Not the insertion of actual boys who were idiots.

It looks like Mario is going to be the next book we Let's Read unless any of you have votes left.

I do, but I was voting for Mario anyway, so you go ahead.

At least they got that part right.


I'm just going to call everything remotely bad a Dracula from now on. "My boss is such a Dracula." "That Dracula just cut me off!" "I might be in the bathroom for a while, I have to drop a Dracula."
