I can’t leave a book unfinished so I had to power through pages of endless, repetitive, over descriptive scenes of Kratos either killing, beheading, impaling or whatever more he could do to all the enemies. One thing I enjoyed were the little parts with the olympian gods, which were a nice addition to the whole story but as soon as they were finished I was back to reading words and words about how Kratos killed a cyclops or a minotaur or something.
Nice book kratos at the ending coming the new god of war was awesome going through challenges to break his nightmares was pure awesomeness.

I can summarize the book in a single paragraph, and you should never be able to do that with a good book.

I was reading what I had already played years ago. By the time I reached the end, it was painful. A book is always far better than the movie, or in this case the game and this is the first time that it has not been true.

Looks like I may need to establish a new shelf Feb 06, Javarus Carstarphen added it. The review must be at least 50 characters long. On the contrary, the lack of immersiveness and the massively repetitive tone of the story disengages the reader frequently. I enjoyed it, having a soft spot for anything Greek mythology, and since I suck at video games, I finally found out the story line of a game I found interesting.
Most of the time, in fact, it’s as if the author just sat next to someone who is playing the game and wrote down what was happening as it happened. We have Zeus, Poseidon, Ares, and Athena as well as a few other gods. To ask other readers questions about God of Warplease sign up. This is not literature.

May 25, Imprint: The best matthww about the book is that Stover does a commendable job of adding in a ton of very interesting back story about the meddling of the gods in Kratos’ affairs.

As a huge video game player and fan of the God of War series I was really looking forward to the latest adaption of the game by Matthew Stover. Revenge of the Sith: Hi Everybody, Seems to be one of the best selling game, I ever seen in my life. Turns out it is much better as a video game! For More than Glory.

This book did not. Almost everyone loved it. He is on the verge of losing all hope when the gods give him one last task to end his servitude. I haven’t played the game this book is based.
