I came across this book on the subreddit /r/gamebooks and decided to pick it up. I was not disappointed! it's much longer than I expected and it was clear from the beginning that this was a gamecock that was more about the storytelling than the mechanics or puzzles. Which, for me, is preferable! I prefer to get invested in the story and be surprised by all the different outcomes than be frustrated because I can't "solve" the book.
That being said, there was a pretty fun "shooting" mechanic that added to what is pretty much a Fighting-Fantasy-style ruleset.
Overall, this is one of my favorite new gamebooks and I highly recommend you pick it up, although I would be cautious when it comes to the binding job that Amazon did. My first copy had pages falling out, but the replacement has been fine.
