Really rather good,
This review is from: Game Night (Paperback)
It's a shame that if you are not a role-player that a lot of the humour of this book will be lost. But if you are, it will probably be one of the funniest books you ever read. The situations will be oh so familiar to those of us who have wiled away many an evening with the polyhedrons.
It's a well crafted novel, the writing is neat and clear, but the real gem is the dialogue which is tight, crisp and most importantly funny, it was of a quality to make Elmore Leonard proud.
Comparisons to Pratchett are obvious but to my mind it's a completely different style of writing, just the same genre. It is however just as funny, including a few real laugh out loud moments, a hard thing to extricate from me.
It's clear that Mr Nexus is a talented writer and hopefully there will be more to come, I await it eagerly.
