If I 've learned anything about writing through my years as a reader, it 's that you can not have an unlikeable protagonist.Yahtzee does a lot of differen things that also scream amateur.

It 's too goo, that if it ha a game, you could think, " I ca n't wait to see Yahtzee tear this thing apart! "

Right now Yahtzee reads like someone doing a pretty ood job of imitating Douglas Adams.

I 've known Yahtzee for a shor time from his awesome podcasts but never read any of his works.Turns out- I was missing a lot! From the moment I started reading, I ould n't let go.

It 's th ood, old-fashioned adventure comedy:) I 'm used to hearing Yahtzee speak so his narration was n't a turn-off.

Damn right it does xDAnd when perpetually-confused person is now happy and excited or drama-queen wants to intimidate- hilarity ensues xDVery quickly we figure out who is who and Yahtzee 's lack of " vocal spectrum " takes nothing away from he familiarit.

Yahtzee is n't my brother, unfortunately:-) Let me ell you a bit about thi story, as erhaps some of you are reading this review for this particular reason.

I pity you:-) Howeve, instead of another random tangent, let me as you about that story.Jim was human.

It 's just one of those books.Now I want to ead somethin by Yahtzee.

It ha a fun read, with plenty of smirks and one or two genuine laughs, but none of the full-out guffaws I 'm used to from his work with The Escapist, and really not as much as comedic virtuosos like Douglas Adams or Christopher Moore.

Anothe tory was fun, and just meta- enough to ge me interested, but it smacked too much of Croshaw 's well-known hatred ( to ZP fans, howeve, newcomers should be ble to pick it up based on the dedication, though) of MMOs. Seems more like a long-form cathartic lambasting of something the author finds personally peeving than a real effor to tell story.

is actuall more of a two-and-a-half, but I 'm being generous on the grounds of " great idea, iffy execution. " This would 've made a spectacular short story or novella; the idea here is fresh, taking your typical swords-and-sorcery novel and turning it on its head in several ways, from the choice of protagonist ( an undead minion) to the framing device ( it 's no secret to tell you he 's in a MMORPG).

And although Yahtzee kept it pretty believable, some points when Jim may be about to die and the hated 'hero' aspect comes in to throw him and his adventurer " associates " ( Not buddies remember!

Yahtzee pulled off a goo ending too, which is a feat, considering how many subplots are amassed by then.Every gamer and lover of Zero Punctuation should buy th book.

It shocked me a bit of SAO, but uch more fun, and s better achieved.I loved this story, it 's got a little bit of everything in it.

He 's enjoying the afterlife, feeling all the warm fuzzy feelings of being elevated to heaven when he is suddenly yanked back to Earth and into his body, thus awakening as an undead thanks to a Necromancer, and it 's just then when his problems begin, as he suddenly realises, he ca n't die anymore.The book stays like a fantasy story for a ong while before something starts happening that changes verything.
