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.

    Great read, it was very well paced, and incredibly funny. The story has wonderful elements from fantasy and gaming, but doesn't force you to be part of the culture to understand them. Recommended to everyone.


  • Oct 22, 2012 from Israel

    Starts off a bit slow until the center plotpoint is revealed little by little - Once it does, the book carries itself onto the end with laughs and likable characters. A very enjoyable book.


  • Sep 11, 2012 from United States

    If you played WOW than you will love this book.

    Fairly good novel about a dead mage trying to get him self killed again. there is some action and even hints of romance in it, but you need to be a gamer or mainly a MMORPG gamer to understand and enjoy the jokes in this novel.


  • Mar 11, 2011 from Mudgee, NSW, Australia

    Well done and very full on. Despite being written with the light humour intended to poke wondeful fun at Adventure simulators, the constant theme of the point of living really did stike a chord with me.

    The story was fantastically written and enjoyable at every step, proving the point on what good story mechanics are that he is always denoting in his show 'Zero Punctuation.' Not one detail was meaningless, and ingnoring that I am not a big gamer in the least, it was good read and I only needed to ask a friend once what somthign ment.

    I only bought the story origionally b/c he was the one who wrote it, after listening to his critiques for so long I really need to see what he thought was a well writting story. It boarder lines comparisons with Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, but still incedably unique.


  • Feb 15, 2011 from Michigan

    This book is exceptionally well-written and is very clever in it's spoof of MMORPG's. I highly recommended this book to several friends. A truly great read.


  • Feb 12, 2011 from Ireland

    Brilliantly funny, sarcastic and cynical. Yahtzee has put a lot of his skills into this book, and did not disappoint! He has an amazing way with words, and even more with story telling, but you probably already knew that by getting here in the first place! Well worth the read.


  • Feb 02, 2011 from Canada

    If you have ever played an MMORPG read this book. If you haven't played one, congratulate yourself and then read this book...


  • Jan 05, 2011 from the o.c.

    Excellent book! Everyone in my family has enjoyed reading it! When does the next book come out?


  • Dec 08, 2010 from England

    To be honest, I don't read all that much, what with computers I never find the time for a paperback. I've read about 30 books in the last 5 years, and this was the latest. Gotta say, I'd put it up as one of the best, it suits my humour, doesn't try to be overly complicated, lots of jokes and clever language. Plot is a lot of fun.


  • Nov 03, 2010 from New Zealand

    Really good read, exactly what I was expecting from Yahtzee.


  • Oct 15, 2010 from Ohio, USA

    A great book. Truly humorous and original. Keep up the good work, Yahtzee.


  • Oct 14, 2010 from Kenwick, WA

    Yahtzee may want to be Terry Pratchett a little too much but still a most enjoyable read.


  • Oct 13, 2010 from arizona

    pretty good. drags a little in the middle but is definitely worth a read. I'm not even a big fan of the fantasy genre but still enjoyed reading it. It's well written for sure, and there's not much else to say. check it out!


  • Oct 01, 2010 from Illinois

    Fans of Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw's work will love this book. It is full of his kind of humor and still tells a good story. The story is especially funny if you have an understanding of RPGs and MMORPGs. Fun read.
