Illidan Stormrage is one of the most powerful beings ever to walk the lands of Azeroth. He is also one of the least understood. Behind his legend, beneath his enigmatic mission, lies a brilliant mind whose machinations are comprehended by few - and trusted by even fewer. Illidan's righteous reign of justice and vengeance has begun.

The story was great and helped explain the next expansion and hero class. Took me back to when I played Burning Crusade and gave better insight to characters I love as well introduce some great new ones. Much better of a story than War Crimes.

If I'm going to tell the story of a life, my life, then I need to tell it warts and all. If the tale is too saccharine sweet then what can the reader take away from it? What do they learn about you? I've written everything down. The shit, the death, fun, naughtiness, addiction, laughter, laughter, laughter, some tears and lots of love and happiness. That, to me, is a better reflection of a human's life.

As a fan of Nick Frost and the work he's done it's great to get an insight into who he is as a person. It's not often you get to listen to someone talk about their lives and their experiences. Hearing him read the story you get the sense that he's not reading from a book but in fact hanging out with you recounting his life informally.

  • Becoming Steve Jobs

There have been many books - on a large and small scale - about Steve Jobs, one of the most famous CEOs in history. But this book is different from all the others. Becoming Steve Jobs takes on and breaks down the existing myth and stereotypes about Steve Jobs. The conventional, one-dimensional view of Jobs is that he was half genius, half jerk from youth, an irascible and selfish leader who slighted friends and family alike.

I've read through the Isaacson biography and other literature on Jobs. I feel this captures the emotions of a man who would not settle for seconds in life. I've always idolized Jobs and his desire to change the world. The people who spoke on his character in this book reaffirms how great and greatly trouble Job was.

Alliance and Horde forces have stripped Garrosh Hellscream, one of the most reviled figures on Azeroth, of his title as warchief. His thirst for conquest devastated cities, nearly tore the Horde apart, and destroyed countless lives throughout the World of Warcraft. Now, on the legendary continent of Pandaria, he will stand trial for his transgressions.

Would you consider the audio edition of World of Warcraft: War Crimes to be better than the print version?

I enjoyed the reading of this, it's made me want to try out other Warcraft books in audio form. Knowing how the actual characters sound from the games I can still listen to this and enjoy it.

What did you like best about this story?

I really enjoyed the secondary characters. Baine Bloodhoof and Sylvannas Windrunner. Hearing things from their persective helped flesh them out into thinking, feeling characters.

Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

Baine Bloodhoof was the best. There are a few other male roles that really lent themselves to Mr. Brick's voice but his portrayal of Baine Bloodhoof was excellent.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I would say the most I felt was some suspense during a few scenes that kept me listening even when I needed to focus on other tasks.

Any additional comments?

The story takes place in Pandaria which suits itself being based after the fourth expansion to World of Warcraft. Since I haven't played the game itself since Cataclysm I have a hard time following some of the Pandarians and who they are. I had to do a little research outside of the book to look into them, which I find a fault in the writing. I should be able to read the book and get a solid understanding of who each person is and which side they fall on with regard to alliances.The book itself plays out like so many court room movies and tv shows. With objections and protests it seemed like a court room story with a World of Warcraft theme. I still recommend reading this book if you finished Mists of Pandaria and are moving into Warlords of Draneor.
