    Richard Forthrast created T’Rain, a multibillion-dollar, massively multiplayer online role-playing game. But T’Rain’s success has also made it a target. Hackers have struck gold by unleashing REAMDE, a virus that encrypts all of a player’s electronic files and holds them for ransom. They have also unwittingly triggered a deadly war beyond the boundaries of the game’s virtual universe - and Richard is at ground zero.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Reamde to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version but I have to say the reader does a fantastic job in portraying the characters, their attitudes, accents, etc and makes the story really come alive.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Reamde?

    Reamde takes some turns and twists that really surprised me and made the story so much more enjoyable.


    Have you listened to any of Malcolm Hillgartner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    At first it took me a little while to get into it (1-2 hours) because all the characters were being introduced but once the book took off, it really did. I downloaded it to run and I can tell you I had some 20 mile runs in there that would have been horribly boring and tedious without this book!


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic story and I really have to figure out what to read next, so I don't feel let down.
