I have played MMORPG's such as Runescape in the past. Listening to the audio of this story was like listening to someone talk about the step by step p..Show More »rogress they made through that world. Which could be painful beyond belief, but for some reason, I didn't mind.
The writing is not great, its not bad either. The main character is flat. As other reviewers have said, he is a whiny little dude. The story structuring is so patently a blow by blow account of an MMORPG I cant get beyond it. I mean, what we are watching unfold is one guys journey through this world with a built in cheat code that levels up his characters stats so that things come more easily to him. Why is this interesting?
This story was interesting to me because it was sort of like taking crack. As a game junkie, I could vividly dive into the feelings here. But the story itself? Pretty dull.
