Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eve: The Burning Life (Paperback)
I agree with the first reviewer, this was a real let-down after much pre-publishing hype by the makers of the game (CCP) that it is based on (EVE Online).
The Tony Gonzales book The Empyrean Age, set in the same game universe, is a _much_ better read - a totally different quality. I started playing EVE as a result of reading TG's book. If my first introduction to EVE had been The Burning Life, I would (a) probably never bothered finished reading it, and (b) certainly not bothered investigating the game.
Burning Life suffers from trying to cover too much ground (I assume in an attempt to introduce various game content) with thin to non-existent character development. I read to the end only in the hope it would improve, but sadly it didn't.
Play the game (seriously good), but don't bother with this book.
