    "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.

    Story
    "A light fluffy tale about gaming"

    I got this as I wanted to hear a different take on gaming and how it appeals to non traditional gamers. This book is a light, fluffy, harmless tale and I happily listened all the way through. Though at times I found myself moaning at the way things went, I did enjoy it. I enjoyed it enough to try the sequel, not my finest hour.

    If you want a little fluff, and some amusing anecdotes from someone who is pretty honest with how they got into gaming, it's not bad. It certainly won't bore you and the time will fly by rather nicely. However you will find yourself talking aloud pleading with her not to do certain things, that she does anyway. But that's the fun part of an audio book.

    Treat it like a piece of holiday reading and it will reward you. A golden classic it isn't but you don't always want heavy reading anyway.
