    So True, So Funny

    I loved this book. It had me laughing out loud and nodding along. Being a closet girl gamer, I can personally vouch for her accuracy. I recomend this book to anyone (girls and guys) who are even a little curious about RPGs or if you are involved all ready and want to laugh. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did

    It's a cute book, but already out of date. I THINK she played 3

    It's a cute book, but already out of date. I THINK she played 3rd edition, or 3.5, and it's all 4ed nowadays.

    but it's cute. fun. more of a memoir than anything else, I think.

    Not for Real Gamers

    As a long time gamer girl, I found this book to be down right offensive. Perhaps if you are trying to get your non-gamer girlfriend to understand what the heck you're doing every Saturday night, it may be appropriate, but only if she's a girly-girl. For any other female gamer, don't bother.
