I’ve been listening to the audio book of War Crimes for the past week. I have to say, I’ve really enjoyed it. It was nice to be thrown straight in to the story without the prelude of getting to know the characters and what not - I already knew who they were, and the descriptions of them only confirmed/added to that information.
The story itself I thoroughly enjoyed. I only have half an hour left of the reading, so will finish it on my way home from work tonight. But what I’ve read so far has been fantastic, and really eye opening. It has my head spinning with possible future expansion possibilities! What I liked about this one was that it presented insights in to past events. I won’t go in to detail as I don’t want to spoil it for anyone else. Suffice to say, you get some more information about particular events, which I found fascinating. Perhaps those who are already well versed in the Warcraft lore will find it a little boring or repetitive, but I came in to this with no knowledge, and am leaving with an understanding of how certain people are the way they are. I love it!
Has anyone else read any of the other WoW books? And if so, which ones do you recommend?
