Diablo III: Book of Tyrael | Blizzard Entertainment

Mehso-so

So the first third of this is a postscript to the game, Diablo 3
And the rest is lists! There's a brief history of the world, the factions both major and minor with short descriptions, and a list of characters with short bios, all written ICly by Deckard Cain with notes by Tyrael.
I expect this was made for #roleplaying and #fanfic writers, haha
The cover is REALLY nice though, and it comes with a double-sided mini poster, tucked into the back.

TalecArashi If you wanted to read more about the history of the game's world, you'd want this: 4w

I've never played Diablo, but my husband's a big fan of the series and I watched him play D3, so I'm not in the dark with regards to what this is about 🌠

Seeing a #Recursion tag -- but not going to this book -- is making me wish I knew where my copy was :(

edit: also *why* is the paperback $56 on amazon

I picked this up because I wanted to read something new, but not something so deep or fascinating that I felt bad for reading it while my brain wasn't working so well. SF beach fare, I guess -- something where I wouldn't feel bad if I kept glazing over at a paragraph. Anyway, this worked out well for that.

(oh, right -- #scifi )

TalecArashi The cover quote compares it to old pulp SF and -- while I haven't read much old pulp SF -- I suspect it checks out. To me this means regular shots of “Who talks like that??“ and “Who *reacts* like that???“, & worldbuilding that is more interesting than the dialogue or characters. :B

The aliens are cool (non-mammalian!), and the multitude of prefaces are in themselves very neat pieces of worldbuilding.

TalecArashi Just finished the two “Appendix“ chapters that end the book. The first one is... kinda bad. The second one is actually good though, as good throughout as any single high point from the main story, imo. 1mo
RaimeyGallant Nice review. :) And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you need it. Or if you prefer how-to videos, @chelleo put some together at the link in her bio. @LitsyWelcomeWagon 1mo
