I admit it, I am addicted to World of Warcraft and this is what attracted me to this book. Reamde is most definitely a book for geeks BUT also for those who love spy thrillers, stories set in exotic locations, mysteries, big business stories and on and on. The plot twists were many but masterfully handled. I am in awe of the authors ability to keep control of the story line as it wends its way around the globe. The characters were well developed, and there were many to develop, but none came before its time.
If you like mysteries, thrillers, travel stories, computer lore, stories that help you see how another fellow thinks you will like Reamde.
Couldn't have been more disappointed. The random plot seemed to have been lost almost from the beginning. The wild array of slightly developed characters were difficult to distinguish one from the other. I guess this was written to be a start of a movie script for quick sell. Perhaps the use of pictures would help bring forward clarity of the characters but not sure there is any help for the plot. Lack of plot doesn't seem to stand in the way of many movies these days.
