Yes, it's Myst the novel. All 466 pages.
Sadly enough, Myst was one of four games I payed full price for. The other three were Interstate '76, Afterlife, and a really forgettable Tomb Raider clone. Of course, that is the result of me using Newsweek reviews for my gaming information in the early days.
Back to Myst. I thought it was pretty, and I understand that many people just love it, but even with a cheat guide, I was too bored to progress much past the island itself. So now they went and wrote a novel. It can't be that good, because it's $1.25. For 466 pages.
Now for all I know it might be superb. My problem with this book, and so many others, is th' us'e of th'e a'post'rop'he to an' ex'cess'ive ex't'ent to fa'ke an alie'n lan'gu'ag'e. I don't like stuttering while reading to myself. I guess this will have to go on the unread shelf along with A Day in the Life of a Moon Rock and Clam: The Untold Story of that Icelandic Bivalve Dredged up in 2007.
Of course, if you can't make it through Myst, there are more action packed game based books out there:
