I don't read the books, but as a lover of literacy and a (so I've been told) talented writer (I say talented instead of avid because, like it or not, I don't actually write as much as I'd like to), I absolutely ADORE hearing about Knaak's silly follies, perhaps for the same reason that I love reading blacked out comments and FMLs. However, I have yet to hear anybody cite something ridiculous from -this- book.So can anybody tell me - what sort of ridiculous, mockery-ripe things have been written in this book, if anything? Or has Knaak cleaned up his game?And I mean -besides- his over all writing style. That is, things such as refusing to describe eyes as just plain "eyes."

The book has yet to be released. HOWEVER, if the Stormrage novel is any indication, I am prepared to forever see of Varian as non-saveable.Seriously, I love Varian. I think Blizz kinda dropped the ball on him when they introduced him to the game, because the comics were wonderful. I just wish they had the wonderful and always talented Christie Golden to write him. She did such a marvelous job giving Arthas some FANTASTIC character as well as Jaina in "Arthas", and don't get me even started how the latest Thrall book was so good, I practically read it for 12 hours straight before realizing I had work in three hours.Knaak is...well...he has a KNACK for making interesting characters unappealing. His take on Malfurion made him look like a troubled Superboy, when Malfurion was alway confident and strong in game. Tyrande just seemed to take a back seat, and Rhonin was...well....Rhonin is to Knaak what Batman is to Frank Miller.After reading an excerpt from the novel, I am concerned they are just going to show RAGEFACE VARIAN RAWR!!! instead of going into great detail about his conflicting personalities and feelings. Oh well....I'll probably buy it cause I'll pray Knaak finally got some since into him when it comes to developing characters.
