The value you will find in this book depends in a large part on the value that you would find in the game Spec Ops: The Line. Since the game's narrative depends on the player being familiar with the various tropes of shooter gameplay, so does this book with its reader.
However, being in the correct category, although not having played the game itself, I found this to be a very powerful piece of writing. Easily more affecting than most books I've read this year.
Come to think of it, I'm now really curious of the opnion non-gamers would have of this book.
