Fantastic read! Funny and quick paced.

Zork is one of those books you read every two or three years. It's highly enjoyable and it's a really easy read. Effinger did a good job on this one.It's one of those books where you just keep turning the pages and before you know it your closing the back cover.Really, if you want a refreshing fantasy novel, pick up Zork if you can find it. It's definately worth seeking out.

I read this book years ago, and I still remember it!

I bought this book a long time ago and would like to say it was very well done!It's a journey through the great underground empire with intriguing characters and a good story-line (If you remember "Kill Troll with sword", you'll get an instant feel for this novel)!I'd say pick this one up!

The Zork Chronicles: Beyond the Realm of Gaming

This is really a great book! For those of you who played the original DOS-based games, and those that played the truly original game on a NEC system with an 8" disk drive, you've got a good idea of what the book is about. It's not just another dull game book, though- it's an adventurous tale with the lure of such classics as The Hobbit. Forgo food until you finish this novel!

The Zork Chronicles: more than just the game.

The Zork Chronicles tells the tale of Glorian, the supernatural guide, as he assists Mirakles (a muscle-bound hero) in a quest to kill an evil wizard. The characters run around the Great Underground Empire, visiting places familiar to those who have played the Zork games by Infocom. The book, however, is much more than just a tale of the Empire hundreds of years after the "mysterious stranger" pillaged it. Zork Chronicles is a thinly veiled satire which plays upon the traditional roles assigned to characters in epic quests. The humor is subtle, sometimes sarcastic, and always enjoyable.
