I have tried getting into the novels, I really have, but the ones I have read are really heavy on the description, and I just don't like novels like that. I want to hear the story, not be bombarded by details; let me fill those in with my own imagination. Don't spend a page describing that castle; tell me what happens to make that castle significant! Details just don't hook me in, so all the times I've tried to get into a WoW novel when I see them at a bookstore, I can never get past the first page.Now, I know someone will tell me that I will miss out on reading a lot of great literature if I am turned off by details, but I read for pleasure. I want to enjoy the book I am reading, or else why bother reading it? And, as I have said, I just don't enjoy description; I enjoy action. I want to know what happens, not the little details of everything involved. Plot hooks me in; setting does not.On another note, at the time of this posting, there is one vote for each option. Nice.

You've been cursed with Knaak books, then. He tries to detract you from how crappy his story is by putting you to sleep with his excessive detail of the most minute of things. And then you wake up, remembering that you love WoW and it's lore, but you forget how crappy the book is, so you keep on reading. Rinse, and repeat.I highly recommend giving a Christie Golden book a try. Lord of the Clans, Rise of the Horde, Arthas. All very enjoyable books.

Rise of the Horde and Lord of the Clans are great Christie Golden works, I also reccomend Tides of Darkness by Aaron Rosenburg.
