I loved this book, minute after minute. I'm so glad there's more. The magic system and characters are great. This book is now my favorite book of all time.

There's so much here but it takes such a long time to get going. Be patient. It gets better.

What a ride

I loved each story and felt the heartbreak and triumph at every studio. I would love a season version that goes through each year and looks at the studios development postmortem

Good book, annoying reader

Such a great book and a tale of rags to riches and beyond. Can't wait for more!

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.

I loved this book immensely. It was informative and entertaining. I just finished it and I'm about to start it again. If you are a fan of RPGs, be they Shadow Run, Dungeons and Dragons, or Call of Cthulhu you need to read this book to give you clear picture of your gaming heritage.
