bookshelves: faery-tale, fantasy, fiction
Read in December, 2009

I liked the novel approach to fantasy, through people who play fantasy role-playing games, which brings the other world through without the members even suspecting it.

However, I found the characters to be very one-dimensional, references to be often muddled, and sometimes the particular event or happening in the plot to go on and on (like the climax itself). I wanted to feel more attached to the characters, but I felt held at a distance from everyone, including the narrator himself.

I felt the plot was very good, and the background characters were interesting enough. I wanted it to be more, however.
