Stephen Briggs and Terry Pratchett seem to do no wrong. Every performance whisks you back into the diskworld, and this book is no different. Vimes is my favourite character amongst Pratchett's array, so this book had me a little more excited (and expectant) than his other plotlines.
Fear not. It's a fantastic story. I sincerely hope this isn't the last time I read about the city watch. Get it *now*
This is the harry potter novel of video games and 80s nostalgia. Brilliantly written with twists, humor and adventure. And if you're a gamer, you'll certainly appreciate (and learn from) the dollops of gaming history loaded into the story.
This is how I expected Snow Crash to be. Thank-you Ernest Cline.
Will Wheaton does a fantastic performance that fits the novel perfectly. I'd really really /really/ love to hear more from both of these guys.
Imagine my suprise when the second book to such an epic start to a series is a drab, unsophisticated take on the events which transpire in book 1. Take the amazing scope of the universe outlined so vividly in Cryptum; throw it all away and instead wander around inside the brain of a tribal human who's stuck on a patch of dirt.
Pretend this book doesn't exist. Hopefully Bear comes to his senses in the third book.
The narrator does a great job of trying to keep things interesting, but it turned out writing a review for the book was more interesting.
