Best game to book conversion ever especially since it shows how much content I had missed when I played the game. I got about ten percent through this, and then decided to switch to the Rhys Hess version.This version has too much pointless prose added, and whatever spark the original story had is lost.So far, the Hess version is muchevocative A perfect example of how less isToo see how I eventually feel about that version, check my review of it.
