Awesome books, gritty subject and very rapid read with a LOT going on.

Glad to finally see them released, and maybe I can now sell my first edition physical copies =)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, would have liked a better reprint quality, 16 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has been a tough review to write.. as its not about the quality of the writing. This stands out as the first book in one of the finest gamebook series in history. My problem however is with the quality of the reprint.

When you reprint a book, you are typically aiming for collectors.. fans of the book who cant get the over-priced originals, or new fans to the genre who understand that small demand niche books cost more

The cover quality is below par, I have seen better quality on a printer manual, and is not much thicker than the pages themselves. Already the book looks tatty and cheap and will look awful on a bookshelf and hence is just hidden in my old book drawer.. and only after one (incomplete) play through. The pages and the clarity of the text is top notch however!

I would have personally rather paid 3-4 times as much and had a hardcover book that would stand the test of time.

EDIT : Still not the quality I would have liked for a reprint, but did not stop me buying the whole series again due to the writing. I still cannot, out of nothing but loyalty, give 5 stars. If you want a durable book that needs plenty of thumbing, and yet will still look good you may want to see if a hard back copy gets produced.. but if you want to play this awesome series, get them now!

Does what it says on the box, very sturdy and after initial trepidation you can use this confidently.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally immortalised in Kindle Format, 4 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seeing these books come out in Kindle made my decade, even though I have the originals in a drawer. They are gritty books with great characters and fabulous stories, though not for the faint of heart.

Considering their thin size (about the size of the first harry potter book) they manage to squeeze in a great amount of content.

6 books in the series, each fantastic in its own right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping the genre alive, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A welcome book that shows the the Gamebook Genre still has legs. Closest thing to playing a video RPG in book format. Well done to the author

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor compared to other works, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For shorts, these can be quite entertaining if the mood takes you, however this one was very poor. Avoid and go with the authors other stories.

3.0 out of 5 stars Low quality kernals, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Maybe I am just a popcorn snob, but when you buy popcorn from official sources the kernals are BIG and lead to nice, light popcorn. These kernals are small and tough and lead to quite rubbery popcorn.

Shame

3.0 out of 5 stars Yet another lovely AOC monitor, but let down by actual display, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The problem with 27" monitors is there are only as good as their resolution.. and 1960x1024 just looks naff on the big screen. This is of course not the fault of the awesome looking monitor I suppose but if you want a crystal clear monitor, without pixelation on 27" and above you need to go at least 2560 x 1440 (or there abouts)

A shame, and only worth buying if you want a big screen for making things easier to see if you have sight issues but not if you want great graphics

1.0 out of 5 stars Dont bother, 28 Dec. 2013
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Monopoly Millionaire (Toy)
I will just list the downsides

1) Not enough money for the game to reach a natural conclusion, 100'000 ran out with only two players
2) You can win the game by just going round the board 4 times, very anti-climatic
3) Get snacks, drinks, setup the board from new, read the instructions.. game was still over in 20 mins
4) Crappy plastic pieces, thin fortune and other cards, but super thick cardboard money

Stick to normal monopoly, this is just a pointless exercise. We WOULD have played to 2 million.. but there isn't enough money in the bank to make this possible

This review is from: The Host [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I am not a fan of Stephanie Mayer, loathed twilight in every way shape and form. But this one, even though it is a blatant rip off of the body snatchers,is very enjoyable with some nice imaginative ideas.
