Does not follow the game's story at all

What would have made Baldur's Gate better?

The story seems to be completely made up and does not follow the story what so ever.

What could Philip Athans have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Author needs to seriously play through the game before attempting to recreate the story in novel form.

Which character – as performed by Fleet Cooper – was your favorite?

Performance was ok at best. Characters we somewhat believable however, I get the impression that the narrator never played the games either.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No redeeming qualities in this book. I can not even finish it.

Any additional comments?

This is a Baldur's Gate flavored story with characters and locations from the game but does not justify the epic story that was the original game.

I loved this book!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Baldur's Gate to be better than the print version?

Can't tell, i haven't checked the written version.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the way it moves through the video game campaigns, and how it narrates the battles.
In addition, I really enjoyed Abdel's personality.

Which scene was your favorite?

It might be a spoiler, so spoiler alert here.
I loved that scene when Jaheira asks Abdel if knows who killed Khalid.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Into the Maw of Madness

Any additional comments?

The narrator is awesome! He probably makes all the difference, he gets really involved, in character, and makes the story so much fun.
