Publisher's Summary

Most players of Dungeons & Dragons are men, yet storytelling and roleplaying come so naturally to women. So where are all the female gamers? The answer is - everywhere!

Confessions of a Part-time Sorceress is a smart, humorous examination of the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game from a female gamer's point of view. The book delves into the myths and realities of gamer stereotypes. It explains how to build a character for a D&D game, how to shop for gear, how to play, and how to find the perfect gaming group, all the while exploring the things that make the D&D game a rewarding and recurring social experience for both men and women.

    "Maybe It's not for me?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better source material


    Has Confessions of a Part-Time Sorceress turned you off from other books in this genre?

    a little yes.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger and disappointment. There was a bit of confusion and embarrassment mixed in as well.


    Any additional comments?

    I had just finished Of Dice and Men and wanted something similar. I had seen the hobby through the initiated perspective but I wanted an outsiders view on the game so I picked this book up. I'm about 3/4 of the way through and it's been painful to listen to.

    Everything is so vapid and shallow. I really want there to be more girls playing RPGs but this book is an insult to the few that do. At times she breaks the number 1 rule of gaming and thats "Don't argue with the GM" especially on none important points like if they're in a mall or not. I'm reserving full judgment till I finish the book but it's not looking good.

    "Pure Drek!"

    It's like Wizards of the Coast found the dumbest woman that works for them and asked her to write a terrible book about DnD.

    Story
    "Cringe"

    I downloaded this to get a better understanding of DnD before i play for the first time. Im not going to comment on the information (though there is little) but rather the writing. This book is so rife with cliches, poor jokes, atrocious puns, and general unfunny anecdotes, that I felt compelled to write a review. This is absolutely not the book to get you started, regardless of gender, background, or life choices, stereotypical or otherwise. I'm a straight male, and only mention it as to be completely transparent, and offer you the opportunity to take my words with a grain of salt if you so choose.

    "fantastic intro to D&D"

    I will own a hard copy of this book to let my lady friends barrow so they can understand my madness.
    The narrator did a fantastic job hitting the right tone for this book.
