I enjoyed this book a great deal, but I wish there had been a bit more detail. Some of the plot points are a bit glossed over and all of the sudden things have happened and you have no idea how they actually came about. Also, the ending was a bit weak, but I'm still going to read the next one. Also, comparing this to Snow Crash is like comparing apples and oranges. Neal Stephenson is on a whole other, much more sophisticated, level. This book is merely entertaining, not necessarily thought provoking.

I honestly expected more. 34 year old male. I had just read
"Ready Player One" though.. hard to compete with. I still liked Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson a bit better. I look back on this one with fond memories though, I remember that I was dissatisfied while reading it.

Really enjoyed this book. It starts out engaging and continues to pick up pace and excitement until the very end.

Awesome idea, this book was definitely one the most entertaining books I've ever read, partly because of my love for video games. There should be more books like this.

This book was better then a lot of
books I've read and i can't wait to read book two "Saga". I think that anyone who has read Epic would agree that Conor Kostick has a brilliant mind.

It's a great book, but I think that the events just seemed to be all over the place; the transitions between this and that didn't flow for me. Other than that, I love the idea :D

Really great book. Just the kind of mix between realism gaming and fantasy that could make any teen boy happy.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: The scenes involving the vampire can get pretty scary for younger readers.
