Assassin's Creed: Revelations (Assassin's Creed #4)
On a gaming forum, I can imagine the reaction to that statement: something akin to “HOW VERY DARE YOU!”
But on a book forum such as this, I'll just get people clenching their teeth and nodding.
This book was just embarrassing to read. And you know the amazing thing? The author is supposed to be a professor at Cambridge! It's kind of depressing when somebody who has quite a few academic credentials under their belt, as well as a few published b ...more
Assassin's Creed: Revelations is the thrilling novelisation by Oliver Bowden based on the game series. Older, wiser and more deadly than ever, Master Assassin Ezio Auditore embarks on an epic journey to find the lost library of Altair - a library that may hold the key to defeating the Templars for ever. However, a shocking discovery awaits him. The library holds no only a hidden knowledge but also the most unsettling secret the world has ever known; a secret the Templars hope to use to control h...more
Admittedly, I join the Assassin's Creed books a little late in the series but I have already developed a liking for the character of Ezio Auditore through the video games themselves. Interestingly, I've yet to play the Revelations game but I'm really looking forward to it now!
This tale is told a little later on in Ezio's life and co ...more
The book is separated into three acts and they generally follow: Act I, how Ezio gets to the new city and who he meets; Act II, the adventure; Act III, the epilogue. Act I is a little mo ...more
Membunuh atau dibunuh!
Hanya itu pilihan yang dimiliki oleh seorang Assassin.
Kisah mengenai assassin yang pernah saya baca nyaris mengisahkan hal yang sama, bagaimana kehebatan dan kebanggaan mereka menjalani hidup. Mulai dari awal mulai bergabung dan bersumpah setia hingga menyambut ajal dengan bangga
Buku ini menawarkan sesuatu yang berbeda. Urusan pembunuhan memang masih ada, namun yang menariknya digabung dengan urusan pencari beberapa buah buku yang di ...more
Bukannya saya nggak suka, tapi sejujurnya, KEPANJANGAN!!
Untungnya, ini berakhir cukup oke, yah, sama seperti gamenya.
Sayangnya, adegan terakhir di perpustakaan Altair, kurang terasa 'wah'. Tapi sekali lagi, itu karena saya bandingkan dengan gamenya. Untuk adaptasi, ini OK.
Mudah-mudahan novel generasi berikut juga akan menyusul diterjemahkan.
The book is about Eizo Auditore master assassins who embarks on a journey to find the hidden knowledge and a unsettiling secret of libary
The best bit of the is on page 23 when Claudia says something funny but I’m not going to tell you because that would spoil the book
I would recommend the assassins creed books to assassin creed fans if you like the game you will love the book the book is for boys ranging from 12 to 17
I love the books and the games so you will t ...more
I know that it's not (in terms of good literature) what many would call a great novel. But for a novelisation of a video game, it is surely a master work.
Yes, I noticed errors along the way, and a couple of things that just don't quite work. But that didn't stop me sinking right into the story and falling madly in love with the adventure and life of the protaganist, Ezio Auditore.
Revelations is the fourth in the book series (the third and final concerning Ezio). Aft ...more
his long quest will lead him fron Masyaf to Istanbul in search of the keys needed to unlock Altair's library and he will meet new friends and enemies. and as a fan of both the books and games i very much recommend this book to all lovers of a good story.
Keseruan saat mencari kunci Masyaf tidak terasa di buku ini, menghilangkan sebagian detail sejarah yang disuguhkan Ubisoft. Seakan menemukan kunci Altaïr hanya perlu mencari pintu tersembunyi tanpa perjuangan panjang.
Saya suka fusion game Revelation ...more
