I've read most of the warcraft books, some of Knacks writing I enjoyed, War of the Ancients I actually enjoyed reading it because it gave a lot of information on what night elf society was like before we even knew NE's existed in WC3.Sure, they are not the most impressive peices of writing ever, and I doubt anyone will ever agree they are. I don't really think any of his books are targeted at the wow population as a whole, he's a fantasy writer and the types of books he writes I think are generally aimed at kids/teens to be honest.When I was in high school, myself and all my friends would read the flavor of the week fantasy books from the library, and we enjoyed them, yeah. But now I don't really care for them, I don't care for the writing style of many of those books that have a huge franchise, I kidna grew out of them.I think the same thing is what people are critising, a lot of the people who read these wow books are teens who very much enjoyed them, and I'm sure a majority of the haters are older players of the game, people who've got jobs, their own places and are people who've outgrown that style of writing.If you sit down and watch your favorite child hood show, say for instance Power Rangers, or hell, Pokemon and think "What they hell, I actually WATCHED this crap?".your looking at these books and trying to get more meaning then they are actually giving, it's a cash grab, pure and simple and at best a few hours of entertainment.that being said, I enjoyed most of his books for what they were, until Night of the Dragon. I had to force myself to finish that one.
