    For fans of the Myst series of computer games who want to know about the history of the D ni and the backstory of Atrus this is great, although the beginning of The Book of Ti ana is dry and slow going.For those who have not played the Myst games these stories probably would not hold much interest as stand alone stories.

    This reader is very thought provoking The first book explores the possibilities and complexities of creating worlds It helps me to believe in the truth of a creator Atrus is learning from his father Gehn how to write ages or worlds Gehn is out of control and believes that he is a God Atrus looks at it differently that they are linking to worlds already created.The second book is about Gehn s parents and the fall of the anciend civilization known as D Ni You follow how a vibrant culture can be corrupted and fall because of pride.The third book follows Atrus as he attempts to find the remnants of the D Ni people after the fall This book explores the corruption of power and what can happen to a culture were there is abuse of power and slavery.I really enjoyed these books They are a little slower of a read, but well worth the time.

    I agonized over what rating to give this book I would like to give it 5 stars, because I support all things Myst and I have been obsessed with the world of Myst since the first time I sat down to play it But I feel like I should give it 1 star, because it was just so terribly written Seriously I felt like I was reading bad fan fiction on the internet So I compromised and gave it 3 stars.A worthwhile read for Myst fans, to see the story behind the games But for a wonderful read with deep characters, interesting dialogue, and a satisfying writing style look elsewhere.

    A fun read, but possibly only interesting for fans of the Myst video game franchise.

    So here s a fun story I actually ordered this book by mistake, having got it confused with From Myst to Riven I was than a little thrown when this brick arrived insteadIt took me a while to get through the whole trilogy mainly because the second installment dragged to hell and back and having finally finished it, I am glad I read it Though I would still rather have got From Myst to Riven.The Book of Atrus Definitely my favourite of the three, it s the story of Atrus s childhood, his adolescence, and the events that led him to write the Age of Myst It s full of great backstory for the games, with some history for the D ni and an especially vital backstory for Gehn and the Age of Riven But it s also a pretty decent fantasy novel in its own right, with a strikingly unconventional hero in Atrus, intellectual, studious non action guy The Book of Ti ana And conversely my least favourite The Book of Ti ana is largely an expansion of the backstory alluded to in The Book of Atrus how Anna became the first human to visit D ni and inadvertently caused its destruction I appreciate knowing about D ni and it s fall, but I really can t help but think it might have been better to retain an air of mystery As horrific as the fall of D ni is, nothing could quite match up to the picture painted in The Book of Atrus.I also kind of expected, based on the title, that it would be about Anna Ti ana, who was one of the strongest and most vivid characters in The Book of Atrus But it s really the story of Aitrus, her husband, and I wonder if her name is in the title mainly to prevent repetition The Book of D ni I have very mixed feelings about this book There are some sections, mostly early in the book, which do a great job of replicating how it feels to play a Myst game But then they reach Terahnee and it becomes something else entirely.The Terahnee section of the novel which is most of the novel troubles me on a number of levels The D ni characters gradually become redundant in their own novel It descends into high fantasy esque wars and battles which don t really fit in a Myst novel and which Miller does not handle very well The ending is rushed And the treatment of slavery is at best hit and miss, at worst uncomfortable The imagery has a lurid quality that honestly shocked me though, given that I was spoiled for the twist, I don t know what I was expecting.All in all, I d say if you re a Myst fan, it s definitely worth giving the Book of Atrus a read The rest I could take or leave.

    The first story The Book of Atrus about Atrus, the key character in the Myst series, is honestly very engaging and good However, the second story The Book of Ti Ana suffers from its mary sue protagonist Anna, who I really wanted to like but she is a brilliant genius who is perfect in every way and also learns a complex language fluently over a few months stuck in a cell without someone to translate for her, and then proceeds to turn the entire civilization on its head somehow I love strong female protagonists, but that was a little much I read that up until Gehn, the antagonist of Myst 2 Riven was born, and I just had no desire to read further.One of these days, I ll read the third story, but probably not.

    If I could rate these seperately I would give them Atrus 4 5Ti ana 1 5D ni 2 5The world created in the Book of Atrus is one of the most interesting fantasy settings I ve explored Unfortunately the character and plot that stretches through the second and third books are both very weak It is also a challenging book to get through because the writing is choppy It feels obviously written by Video Game writers and not professional fantasy authors At least that is what it felt like to me.

    I was, and still am, a Huge Myst fan Upon seeing The Myst Reader in a book store, I bought it but didn t read it for a while When I did begin, I found that the I read into it, the harder it was to put it down I got to travel to other worlds and meet new characters, and also read about their history Anyone who enjoyed Myst, definitely should read this anthology

    Amazing looking book and I wish it was bound instead of just glued It is well written and interesting If you know the myst game or watch video reviews of the series then all you need to know is that it captures the sense of wonder of the games, just without the puzzles.
