The only video game books I've read were the first two Halo books, and I surprisingly liked them quite a bit. I think video game books are interesting because they make both reading the book and play the game more fun. It makes the game's story feels more engaging and personal to you because you've become so attached to the characters of the book, and now that you can actually act out these characters it adds a bit of something more fun to the game. That said, I've been looking for some new books on my Christmas list and your review makes this book sound pretty good :). Do they talk about E-day in the book a lot? The most interesting part of zombie stories I think is when the infection first breaks out, and I think that this can have that same sort of appeal.
I've never read a game novel, but this sounds interesting. I'd also like to pick up some of the Halo novels at some point.
Reading sucks, just FYI.
Hopefully the public library will have a copy or one I could order in.
I find it interesting how well video game books are turning out such as the Halo and Mass Effect ones. I'll certainly consider it. Thanks for the recommendation.
I saw this in a bookstore a couple days ago and almost picked it up, I'll probably check it out.
I feel like I'm all gears-ed out... But I'll atleast check the book out.
Nice Blog! I ordered a copy of the book yesterday Bru, after you told me it was awesome. I should have it early next week - will let you know what I think. =)
