Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the Gun Show!

The top 10 list is populated. The sponsorship program is open. The difficulty is ramping up. The first three floors were nothing compared to what Carl and Donut now face. 

The Iron Tangle. An impossibly complicated subway system built out of the world's subterranean railway systems, all combined and then tied together into a knot. Up is down. Down is up. Close is far. The cars are filled with monsters, the railway stations are less than safe, and the exit is always just a few stops away.

But there is hope. For the first time, the crawlers are all working together. The loot is better than ever. And the secret to unraveling it all may be hidden in the pages of a seemingly useless book. 

Welcome, crawlers. Welcome to the fourth floor of the dungeon.

Neeew ACHIEVEMENT: Trilogy?

Remember when all good series were trilogies? I bet you are glad this one is going to be more than just 3 books then!

Just get it...

It’s as original and amazing as the previous two. I hope Matt continues this series for as long as his liver can hold out against the Winnie The Poo reviewer comments fueling his alcoholism. XD Don’t change anything. Just keep this train wreck rolling. “Choo Choo MF’ers!”

That final commercial about JTJ was priceless btw. Thanks for laughs!

Best Story I have read in Years!

Hooked in the first five minutes. Easy to actually care about the characters. Well written, would happily read a book for all 18 levels. Anyone who gives this book a bad review deserves to serve time in the Dungeon.

Goddammit Donut, this book is awesome

Another awesome entry to this series, you should know what to expect if you listened to the previous two.
Some nice surprises in this one, and I just can't wait for book 4.

Still Fun, but I Don’t Like the Train Line

This series is hilarious! I have laughed out loud several times throughout, including this one. There is so much to love! That said, the whole train line element is not my thing. I’ve taken the NYC subway numerous times and know how convoluted it is. Hearing about the ridiculously complex network the dungeon had sort of bored me. Every time the lines were discussed I tuned out and waited for a decision to be made or an event to occur.
Despite my dislike of the rail system, there were some pretty cool ways to farm experience with it. Gory ones too! Some characters jumped levels at a time due to these scenarios!
There is more intrigue in this story, with some vicious betrayals and new alliances. Some old faces reappear, adding new directions to the plot.
Jeff Hays is again awesome. He is such an amazing narrator.

Liked it overall, but...

I love Jeff Hays' narrative style. The characters are still great, the series is still good, it's still funny but this story is annoying. Once everything is explained you get it, but its used a gimmicky puzzle where the clues tell you literally nothing for a payoff that's alright at best but it doesn't make up for the rest of the story being a cluster fuck. You're like, "What the hell is even going on?" There's no legit progression aside from movement toward next to nothing, and the entire story is a mess, followed by ".....tadaaa..." I honestly didn't even care about what was going on by the end, even with the great characters and superb voice acting I was like "just let this bullshit finish already." It's not like you can just ignore it, since all the characters do is act confused about shit the entire story with no real goal other than "get down more stairs." And it's not like you can Sherlock Holmes the ending with the shitty clues. It's a mystery LitRPG, without anything a mystery is supposed to have.

I'm glad I listened to this one first, because without Jeff Hays, I'd have hated this one, and I loved the other books in the series.

Story kind of dragged.

Around 3/4ish of the book it kind of just drags and feels like this book should have either ended hours earlier or moved to the next floor but the author didn’t want to do either and just drug it out.

"Glerp glerp!"

Quickly becoming a stable of system apocalypse genre series. definitely the funniest, by far. The story is very well written, and the dialogue is fantastic.

Jeff Hays back at it with his signature butter smooth narration.

Did anyone else find the whole Trainline thing ???

Overall I really enjoyed this book as I have the others in the series BUT it really did have done confusing elements.

I hope the next book is more of a return to form with a less twisted and technical plot so I can enjoy the characters and mechanics in the game.

So so good

I have 500 books in my audible library and this is the 3rd review ive written. it takes an astounding book to make me take the time to review ....this series is one . I started book 1 a week ago and have not stopped listening since. Panicking now as the next book has not come out yet . The whole series is just great and never becomes mundane ....can't wait for the next book.

Still rockin' it

So, let's get this out of the way first. DCC#3 (in my opinion) isn't quite as good as the first two books. But that said, it's still a clear and easy 5 stars and better than another other litrpg / gamelit / audiobook of any genre that I've listened to this year...with the exception of the first two books.

Why didn't I like book 3 as much? It's... confusing. Like super confusing, to the point that if you read the digital (non-audio) version of the book the author has a note at the start which literally warns its readers about as much, telling them to not stress about trying to remember layouts as the floor is deliberately meant to be confusing. Which is fine I guess, but that still doesn't translate well to audiobooks where you can't flip back and forth between pages when you want to clarify something mentioned earlier. Really, I would have preferred that the book just be confusing to the MC but /not/ the reader, full stop.

Anyway, a minor issue in the scheme of things. The book is still gloriously great. If you've read / listened to the first two books, you'll still love this one. If you haven't, you should go back and start at book one (don't jump in here) as there are lots of references to previous events and no summary at the start. I still had laugh out loud moments (make sure you listen to the end credits!) and it was still a joy to join the characters on their journey. I've said it before and I'll say it again - this series is fast becoming one of the greats in the genre. Well done Mr Dinniman & Mr Hays. Well done.

I just want more!

I am so hooked on this series. I also enjoy the development of the main characters and their relationships, while maintaining a balance of action and originality, with a few creative suprises. The narration is great and I got lost it the story. This is the hallmark of decent narration.

Great addition

This was a great addition to the series with more fun characters more magic and more madness. Matt Dinniman does a great job bringing the series to life with more emotional turmoil and action for our characters and MC. Jeff Hays dose a great job with the voices bringing out the turmoil and making the action more interesting for the MC and his Friends. Overall 15/15 nice one
