Product description

In a world full to bursting with would-be heroes, Jim couldn't be less interested in saving the day. His fireballs fizzle. He's awfully grumpy. Plus, he's been dead for about sixty years. When a renegade necromancer wrenches him from eternal slumber and into a world gone terribly, bizarrely wrong, all Jim wants is to find a way to die properly, once and for all. On his side, he's got a few shambling corpses, an inept thief, and a powerful death wish. But he's up against tough odds: angry mobs of adventurers, a body falling apart at the seams -- and a team of programmers racing a deadline to hammer out the last few bugs in their AI. *"Mogworld" is the debut novel from video-game icon Yahtzee Croshaw (Zero Punctuation)! With an exclusive one-chapter preview of Yahtzee Croshaw's next novel, Jam--coming to bookstores in October 2012! *Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw's video review site, Zero Punctuation, receives over 2,500,000 "unique" hits a month, and has been licensed by G4 Television. *Yahtzee's blog receives about 150,000 hits per day. "The first legitimate breakout hit from the gaming community in recent memory." -Boing Boing

A witty, snappy book by Ben 'Yahtzee' Croshaw (of Zero Punctuation fame) which shows that he can not only translate his insightful humour into written form extremely well (punctuation is included, for anyone who was wondering) but also convey an intriguing, entertaining story.

For gamers, you'll love every moment, joke and subtle reference throughout the book. Non-gamers will be immersed in this wonderful world that 'Yahtzee' created, and while some jokes will be lost on them, no doubt they'll still find heart and humour in this wonderful book. The chapters breeze past and very little does anything drag on.

I am a great fun of Yahtzee Croshaw from his zero punctuation reviews. So when i learned about the book i ordered it immediately. I knew from his sense of humor that the book will be awesome. Turns out it is! A very well written story, with clever dialogs, well described scenery and jokes that even non casual gamers can understand.

Some people might consider this a blasphemy, but i think we have a modern Douglas Adams here.

I definitely recommend this book.
