It’s been a while since a read a entire book. Thanks to my dear love, who gave me the book World of Warcraft: Tides of War, I’m once again willing to read books!
This Tides of War is a nice mix of Romance and some Adventure. A little war going on here and there, a lot of gaming reference (thanks to the World of Warcraft background), and at the end love’s in the air.
I found myself very comfortable reading it because I’ve played a lot of WoW (World of Warcraft) and the book is meant to be read by people who play the game. Not that “regular” people can’t read or won’t understand the book, but it makes a lot of difference to know the background of what’s going on in the story.
I would recommend the book to “regular” people. It could be a little “out-of-space” sometimes but for sure you can enjoy. You can leave and the “magic-elfs-orcs” stuff behind and look for the actions, the sentiments, the plots and have a nice story.
At the beginning I felt so weird reading it. It’s a book about a game. Usually it’s the other way around. After some research, I found that this has been done sice a long time ago, specially in the Warcraft series. How could I missed so much fun?
After I finished I jumped right into the game to check the places that the book mention. Looking for details, people and changes. The book actually made me play the game again! I was on a break for unlimited time. The book made me feel at home in the world of Azeroth (the “earth” in the game).
Now I’m looking forward to read any other book about the Warcraft’s lore. If all the games had books telling the story with more details would be so cool, but I think it would also rip-off the story from the games. The books may fit better this kind of game (MMORPGs) because they focus a lot more in the gameplay, the controls, the features of the game instead of the storytelling.
I think the next one will be World of Warcraft: Shadow of The Horde!
