Surprisingly addictive. Halfway through. My houseguests want to be fed, but I've got this book to read!

--

Excellent exploration of a world whose economy and legal system are run through a MMPRPG. That the Central Allocations committee is composed of the strongest players is a little weird -- you'd think it would be composed of bureaucrats who would then enlist the strong players as hired muscle to do their bidding, but that's the only glaring hiccup in the premise. Nicely done, very quick read, with light, engaging characters (fairy tale style).
