An Unwelcome Quest (Magic 2.0 #3) Reviews
After what seemed like months, I finally found it in me to finish this book. Unlike the two that came before it, I found this one to be a bit slower paced. It just didn't move along like its predecessors. That's not to say it was bad, to the contrary- it was actually quite enjoyable. But it didn't hold my attention quite like I would've liked it to. I'll still be reading the next in the series, but it's not quite at the top of my list.
If you like video games, and enjoy subtle commentary (or some ...more
This was a fun, edible and humorous little book, similar to the rest of the series. If you liked the other two novels, you will probably enjoy this one. Though, it is a bit longer than neccesary.
Scott Meyer proved to me that he is capable of writing morally ambiguous and grey characters that I can actually grow from hating to liking. I was surprised at both the depth of his character arcs, and the wittiness of the dialogue. Despite being a silly sci-fi/fantasy novel, the characters made me ques ...more
I really liked the first book in the series, "Off to Be the Wizard." Scott Meyer took one of my favorite themes - go back in time and be impressive with your future knowledge - and had a lot of fun with it. The second book was amusing but the world in the book didn't interest me. This one is much more in the mode of the first book. This time the "wizards" are trapped without their powers in a computer game quest. They are limited to real-world strengths and skills against virtual dangers. Their ...more
I liked this. It had a very different feel than the others but I still liked it. I think getting trapped in a video game is a great concept. Super fun.
La saga de Magic 2.0 va perdiendo fuerza a la vez que su cast se hace más y más grande. De repente llegan a ser tantos personajes que la historia de Martin y Phillip va quedando en muy poco cuando ellos deberían ser los únicos importantes.
Como sea, fue un acercamiento divertido al género de RPG y ver a los otrora todo poderosos magos quedar sin más herramientas que espadas que tenían que fabricarse con esqueletos de arañas (las arañas no tienen esqueleto! I know, es parte del diálogo y el chist ...more
I discovered the Magic 2.0 Book Series this past sumer while looking for something new on Audible. I quickly finished Off To Be The Wizard and enjoyed its originality in playing with a combination of geeky and fantasy tropes. I quickly moved on to a Spell or High Water and while many people scoffed at it, I enjoyed the way the author played with the philosophical ideas of time travel and reality being a computer program but keep things humorous. I waited patiently for this next installment and w ...more
A different take and a bit more LitRPG in book 3. Still enjoyable and fresh. Really surprised by this series. It’s really entertaining.
The first book was great, the second less so. This one was hard to finish. Disappointing.
