I actually listened to this last week. Warning: By about 3/4s through you're going to want to punch any and all Nightelves in the face, repeatedly. Probably a few Worgen as well. And Garrosh.....but that's to be expected. Varian isn't so bad in this one. Good character development and the interactions between him and Anduin make ya feel for him. 6.5/10

I read this, and don't know what you mean about the Nelves and worgen - Why would I want to punch them in the face? I'm confused. Agree with what you said about Varian - gives him a much needed 3rd dimension.

Yep this comment is lost on me as well. I assure you there was much wish for GARROSH smashing but I'm not sure where the Nelf/Worgen hate comes from. If anyone else is exceedingly annoying in the book it's Wrynn himself. It's supposed to be his big moment but he still comes across as a pretty huge d-bag. Sure, one that PWNS for a while but d-bag nonetheless. /shrug Everyone gets something different from every book.

i already want to get all genocide-y on the night elves, so where exactly is the appeal in the book?i guarantee, the next expansion after pandaria could be 'the triumph of varian wrynn' and the playerbase will refer to it as 'rise of the douche-king.'

If you haven't heard it as an audiobook you won't understand. Knaak's writing style for the NEs is exceedingly wordy and over-dramatized. Brick plays them with an affected accent somewhat similar to Malfurion 2.0 in the game(Hail to the night and all that jazz) Add to that that they're a big focus of the book(naturally) and well I wanted to kill them all. Varian, Garrosh, Anduin, that one-eyed ship captain, hell even Velen all come off as far more succinct in their speech patterns and make for far more enjoyable characters when it comes to this book.
