{Review} Alan Wake by Rick Burroughs

Thankfully, the last third of the book gets better, where the story becomes more complex and nearing its conclusion which is a bit anti-climatic for fans of the game. This book has new ideas that are refreshing and will keep you turning the page late into the night. Well, first of all this is a really really good story. I have played and completed the video game which has an amazing story in my opinion so I figured that I should get the book.

Every time Wake found himself being hunted in the dark woods in the middle of the night I could picture the beautiful eastern woodland landscape and it sent a ch I enjoyed reading Alan Wake, but my review will probably be somewhat biased because I cannot help but to compare it to the xbox game.

And Barry Alan’s manager and best friend who helps him on his journey. It seemed as though they wanted to make a quick buck, so they commissioned an author to pump this novel out as quick as he could, and then threw it on bookshelves without even giving it a second edit. No trivia or quizzes yet. Wake’s journey will lead him to the very edge of madness, and deep within the dark woods, he will come face-to-face with a story he has no recollection of ever writing.

The man tries to kill Alan and in a desperate need to escape finds a flashlight and a gun and kills the man alah to reveal that he turned to ashes. Because this book is not so much poorly-written as it is uninspired writing. Book ratings by Goodreads.


There is a lack of detail in the narrative, not really describing the setting or the characters too well. Maybe a second honeymoon and the fresh air will cure Wake of his writer’s block. It seems that he has some talent, and I would really like to see what he could do with a novel of his own. That being said, the book is not perfect. I heard about Alan Wake from a friend who said that the story was made into a video game.

For it’s amazing plot, I give this book 5 stars. But, it does provide a great companion piece to the original experience, and I think fans will find something great in these pages. I’m a big fan of the Alan Wake series and when the book came out I snapped it up right away and began to devour it like a taken wants to do to Wake. Do you love suspense thrillers? But if you’re not interested in the video game, I doubt reading the book would entertain you very much.

When I did pick up a copy, I immediately noticed that Rick Burroughs wrote in a second person style, meaning that the narrator was Alan Wake.

East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. Once you become accustomed to his style, the book seems to flow more evenly and becomes a dark, personal and colorless story.

I loved the game, mostly for its narrative and storytelling. Wake wakes up to find himself crossing into Bright Falls, Washington, with his wife, Alice. Something that is fantastic as a book may not do well as a movie as many, many readers knowor a video game does not transition as well as it could into a book.
