Publisher's Summary

Empires of EVE: A History of the Great Wars of EVE Online is the incredible true story of the dictators and governments that have risen to power within the real virtual world of EVE Online.
Since 2003, this sci-fi virtual world has been ruled by player-led governments commanding tens of thousands of real people. The conflict and struggle for power between these diverse governments has led to wars, espionage, and battles fought by thousands of people from nations all over the world. There have been climactic last stands, wars for honor and revenge, and spies who caused more damage than a fleet of warships.
Empires of EVE is the history of how political ideas first began to take hold in EVE Online, how that led to the creation of the first governments and political icons, and how those governments eventually collapsed into a state of total war from 2007-2009.

Another amazing job.

I already own the hardcover book and I was a apart of some of these wars and the times they happened in, but I wanted to hear Andrew tell the story again.

Not. Disappointed.

Andrew is a storyteller, both written and when reading it up like this and you can feel his excitement about the content in this audio book. On four separate occasions that I remember off the top of my head I found myself with goosebumps all over my body and shivers running through it. Cochises "All appropriate emotions were applied. We hated them" I had to register to four times before managing to move on.

Brilliant. Thank you.

great listen if you're an mmo gamer

being an eve nerd, I could follow. if I wasn't - no chance! it's a tricky subject to tackle as there are so many cogs to each alliance. I'll warn you in advance that this is one of those books that requires you to listen up to the chapter marker. If you don't, you'll have to recap the chapter to pick up where you left off.

all in all a good listen if you're into mmo games but I can imagine it being a tough task as an outsider to the game.

Excellent record of the history of Eve Online

What did you like best about this story?

Groen does an amazing job of sifting through the myriad fractured sources of history of the players of Eve Online and bringing all the scraps together into an entertaining coherent account of the wars and machinations of the world's largest online sandbox. Groen reaches out to as many sources as possible to try and get a balanced an overview of the conflicts but also retains and allows the listener to enjoy the delicious emotional motives, reactions, and propaganda of the players driving these conflicts.

Great Book!

I loved it, I am an EVE player myself, Been playing for 4 years and I've only heard very small amounts from trickles off my corporation, alliance etc. I highly say give it a read even if you aren't a player
