Believe me, it would really help if you do have some understanding behind the D'Ni universe before you attempt to read this book - i.e. you should read the other two novels and complete the two games before you can understand this one properly. I believe that this is the best of the Myst novels as the plot is just so much more interesting than the last two. Basically Atrus and Catherine are trying to rebuild D'Ni and want to get loads of the people who fled from it back there. During the restoration they uncover this really old Linking Book which in the end they try and use, uncovering the age of Terahnee, a land bigger, bolder and more beautiful than D'Ni was, or ever would be. But not is all as it seems.....

I thouroughly enjoyed this book. As readers of the Myst books will know it follows a man named Atrus. I begins when Atrus and people from Averone (one of his ages) begin the process of rebuilding D'ni. When they are working on raising a fallen wall from one of the guild halls a hole breaks in the floor. beneah there is a linking book. When they explore they find the etheral society of Terahnee, relatives of the D'ni. At first glance the Terahnee seem a flawless socitey. But then slaves are discovered deep within the buildings. Unintentionally Atrus begins to help the slaves in a way that fulfills the slaves profacy.
BTW RAWA(a Cyan insider) told me 2 new books are comming out soon...

mike of magna got it just about spot on. i played and loved the two games, then i read and loved the first two books. this next installment tried to do something more by updating the setting and telling a different story. i'm sorry but it just doesn't work. sure its quite well written, and there aren't any gaping holes in the plot, but it just isn't as gripping as the other two were. the story tries to be too much, but lacks the essential epic scale that made the other two, particularly the book of t'iana, so fantastic. two stars for being nearly there.

The beginning of this final book in the `Myst' series is an utter dream- there's absolutely no hint of the turgid introduction that marred the second book in the series. While there may be some new characters to get to know early on, who join the ones we previously came to know in `The Book of Atrus' and `The Book of Ti'ana' (Atrus and Catherine) this conclusion is so familiar in style and content because the detailed, slender, sumptuous prose remains and the plot grips the reader right from the outset. But then, how could it not? D'ni is to be re-built! What reader of the previous two books wouldn't be immediately enthralled?! With book one it was the survivors of this great civilisation whose story was explored, with book two the fall of D'ni was investigated...and finally (as if all events were building to this one) with book three...the re-building begins in earnest...

However, while the first half of the book is always enthralling, the second half becomes a little less so, because D'ni plays second fiddle to another Age, the entrance to which is discovered deep within the ruins of the remaining survivors great city. In truth, this book should really be called `The Book of Terahnee', because Miller and Wingrove are clearly more fascinated by the social and cultural climate of Terahnee than they are by the challenge of re-building the once-great D'ni. Undoubtedly, the story of Terahnee is an interesting one, but I couldn't help but feel it was drawn out and by the end of the book I was somewhat disheartened and was left wishing that D'ni had not been brushed under the carpet to such a degree.

But still, coming to the end of this novel, I was once again struck by the brilliance of this series and the talent of its writers.

MYST:The Book of D'ni is a stunning ad-on to the MYST trilogy. Even though the title has almost nothing to do with the storyline, the book is still great!! Ever since I first read MYST:The Book of Atrus, I was hooked on the books. The end of the story is a good ending, but it doesn't really sum it all up if you know what I mean; so I think that the authors should keep on creating books to this enchanting saga!!

This book is a great story of adventure, romance and sadness. The descriptions of the world are amazing. This with the other two books - the book of ti'ana & the book of Atrus, give an idea of how the age of Myst (for those who have played the game) came into being. In all this book is an excellent read.

Maybe I missed something by not having read either of the first two books or played the computer games. However, be that as it may, I found MYST to be relatively tedious and almost completely devoid of any kind of action. I guess I am too used to the likes of Tolkien, Eddings, etc. and their kind of fantasy-adventure story. If you want a lot of fast-paced action and sit-on-the-edge-of-your-chair type suspense, I would suggest that you avoid MYST.

In comparison with the other Myst books D'Ni is by far the worst. The other books took you on an adveture ride of twists and turns, learning about the culture and ways of the D'Ni. The book of D'Ni was like driving a straight road in the desert. Dry with nothing more to learn.
The key attraction of learning and discovering the people of D'Ni was lost. D'Ni was dissapointing and it unfortunately left me with a bad taste of the trilogy.
