Reviews of Afk by Huckleberry Hax

This had everything I could ask for in a story; great plot with surprising twists; good setting; good characters. It is compelling and you will not want to put it down. A must for anyone in SL or other metaverses as it pulls all of these items into a metaverse setting. I plan to read the entire series.

Although you need to know Second Life to truely understand the nuances of this story, it can be read 'cold' for the story itself. In any case, the book captures the good, the bad, and the ugly of Second Life ... the frustrations of a 'noob' (new Second Life user), and the attractions of a virtual world, all wrapped up in the detective story itself.

A brilliant story, one of the best I've read! I used to play an MMO with a lot of social aspects (nothing like SL), and this story resonated with me, planted new thoughts in my mind, and took me along for a ride. The depth of it at the start might be a bit too much for people that aren't into MMO's or SL specifically, but I found it nice still. The ending was absolutely perfect, I never saw it coming and it made me look back on what I'd thought reading it before. Now you've compelled me to go read more of your works, in the hopes they're as good!

An original story, well written, and thought provoking. As a SL player myself, I felt as if the author had pulled the characters, situations, and dialog straight from my own account logs at time. This would be an enjoyable read for any Resident, and a fun introduction to most newbies.

Wow! I've never read a book quite like this before, but I must say I liked it alot. Most of the book was worth 5 stars. I was a little foggy at first because I'd never heard of Second Life and didn't know what it was, so nothing made sense for awhile. I chuckled through quite a bit of this before it got to the serious part. I never expected the ending. I'm not quite sure I understand everything about the last few pages, but I got enough that I thought it was pretty good.
