3.0 out of 5 stars Not very good..., 14 Dec 2007
This review is from: Diablo: Birthright Bk. 1: The Sin War (Diablo: The Sin War) (Mass Market Paperback)
I picked up this book when I saw it on the shelf in the Library. Having played D1+2 endlessly I thought I'd give it a go.

I think the only reason I actually finished reading it was due to the fact that I loved the game. The writing style is poor, verging on childish.

Way too many italics and far too many pauses....

It was a very cheesy book, but that's to be expected from a book based on a computer game. I was hoping for a lot better.

Not sure if I'll bother with the other 2. I might read the original Diablo series he wrote, but if they are written in a similar style (which I'm guessing they will be) I probably won't bother.

To sum up - Diablo fans, give it a go. Anyone else interested in fantasy I would move on.
