While important and telling a story that is often overlooked, I kept wishing the writing was stronger and the plot more engaging. Very little happened, an unusual description for a war story. I found the two narratives to be entirely unnecessary. The ...more

This series has become my guilty pleasure. Fun page-turner with just enough romance to balance out the action and enough mythology to give it a hint of heft. The 12 year-old in me adores it, even if I feel like I should read something a bit more... i ...more

Lingered far too long on my "I really ought to read this book" shelf. When I finally opened the yellowing pages I spent the first half wrestling with my guilt over not having read this Very Important Work to actually enjoy it. It is also slow to star ...more

If you have read For the Win, then you won't get anything new from this slim volume. But this is a decent introduction to people who are new to the concept of gold faming. The slightness of the text avoids the multi-page infodumps that interrupt so m ...more

I probably would have enjoyed this book more if I had not heard how wonderful it was. And knowing there was a twist at the end had me watching for it, which takes all the fun out of the revelation. I think this has more to do with me as a reader than ...more
