Very cool book! I love the way the chapters (levels) and character selection is laid out. The weapons showing their rarity is really neat. It really takes me back to my WoW playing days.

The story itself is quite fun and paints a beautiful picture. I can almost smell the flora in the glade. It really took me by surprise. It's been a long time since I've studied Shakespeare but quite a lot came back to me while reading.

I would really enjoy performing this play. Very whimsical – I love whimsy – but not so much so that it detracts from the story. Good work!

The script was written in two distinct ways. One is for the NPCs who are directly intertwined with the supposed feel of the fantasy world and then there are the players who are actively doing what a group of people would do when actually “role playing” in an MMORPG. This format had me totally enjoying both plots until they meet with while it blends seriousness and the crucial player-on-player banter.

Overall it is really enjoyable and you’d feel some love for the protagonists afterwards, both NPCs and the Geeks. It is also well written and your lines seem to roll cleanly off the tongue which fits the high-fantasy genre. I would love to see it come to a stage in the hopes to entertain non-gamers as well when it will slightly delivers what makes RPG worlds entertaining.

Another bonus? Leeeeeeroooooy Jeeeeenkiiiins

My Review of The Dreamer: A Play of Playing
Author Mr. Bohemian.

Wow, The Dreamer: A play of Playing is a beautiful and gripping play based on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. It is set in a magical WOW world. I spent the day reading this book and couldn’t put it down because the characters are funny and the land and dream -like adventure Puck goes on is really fascinating.

The book is well written and put together, very easy to follow what’s going on, even if you are not used to reading plays. I also felt that the chapters were perfect size for if you have limited reading time and need to put the book down and pick it up again.

The story itself follows Prince Puck, an heir of the dream’s dreamers, as he goes to Azeroth to find the reason for his Shaman’s migraines. Will he be able to that reason? I also loved how this play asked the question: What is a dream? Well you all want to find out don’t you? So go and read this play.

I loved many characters in this book, especially, Prince Puck and Yami and Helena. They were well rounded and sometimes funny to read about and imagine, but enchanting in many ways too. I especially loved the line Prince Puck say: Puck: Good morning, pretty petals, because I could just imagine Prince Puck talking to his flowers and this scene reminded me of the school play we did as children at school .

I will be looking out for other books by this author and would recommend this book if you love WOW and Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream or if you like fantasy and the feeling of a magical adventure in a land with lots to offer, written in play format, you should check this book out.

A well established piece with a superb story to back it, The Dreamers took me by genuine surprise. The author did a great job crafting this adaptation of a play into the wow universe. As a former player, I got that sense of familiarity that comes the whole gaming culture so I was better able to appreciate it even more. The characters were funny and the story was exciting.

One of my personal favorites
