Overview

This omnibus edition of the hugely popular Myst trilogy is published to coincide with the release of Myst Revelations, the latest in the line of the bestselling Myst interactive CD-ROM games.

The award-winning Myst series is one of the most successful interactive CD-ROM computer games in history with sales of more than 12 million copies worldwide. Myst captivated the world when it was first conceived and created by brothers Rand and Robyn Miller. Its extraordinary success has gone on to spawn Riven, Myst III Exile, and most recently, Uru: The Ages Beyond Myst. Devoted fans of these surreal adventure games gather yearly at "Mysterium" (whose event sites are spreading to other countries) to exchange game strategies, share stories, and meet up with old friends.

The Myst Reader is a literary companion to the CD-ROM games and a compendium of the bestselling official Myst trilogy: The Book of Atrus, The Book of Ti'ana, and The Book of D'ni. Devoted fans and new players alike will be delighted to have three books in this mythic saga together for the first time in one value-priced volume, which will be published in time to coincide with the long-awaited release of Myst Revelations.

Meet the Author

In 1991, Cyan began work on Myst, a project that would expand the world of computer entertainment. The goal was to use what they had learned building the successful worlds for children, to create a whole new world for everyone. Rather than being followers and simply re-purposing existing content from other media for CD-ROM, they would build from scratch a world that would take advantage of everything the vast new medium had to offer. The results were staggering.

    Wonderful Immersion into D'ni

    If you've played the computer games Myst or Riven you will certainly find this a great backstory to those games. Even if you haven't, the concepts are wonderful and the characters well developed.

    I purchased the books separately when they were first released back in the 90's and it is great to see them all together for a very cheap price. If you are a lover of sci-fi this is one to get on your shelf.

    Excelent stand alone trilogy

    Having only played the original myst game (over 15 years ago at that), I wasn't sure how much I'd enjoy this adaptation. I must say I enjoyed it immensly. Although the rich descriptions brought back memories of the lavish settings from the game, no prior knowledge of the MYST world is required. The first Two books, The Book of Atrus and THe Book of Ti'ana were outstanding. Only the third book, The Book of the D'ni left me feeling a little flat. Well worth it for the first two books alone if you are looking for an excellent non traditional fantasy setting.

    Brillant!

    These books contain some of the most beautifully written sci-fi fantasy i have ever read. You do not need any knowledge of the games to enjoy these, but if you have played them these books will resonate with you all the more deeply. They give amazing depth to an already gorgeus world. A must read!

    Do not bypass this book because you think it's about the videogame.

    Many people I have tried to push this book on say something such as: 'It sounds interesting, but I never played the game.' WORST EXCUSE EVER. This book actually has nothing to do with the game. Some aspects of the book (such as using books to link to worlds) are shared with the storyline as the game, but not much else. This is an excelent sci-fi/fantasy book with it's only pitfall that people assume that because it shares the same name as a videogame that it will not be as fantastic as it is.

    Come on!

    Shouldn't the third book be titled "The Book of Dunny" since the were written before riven came? (It wasn't called d'ni until riven)

    Very very good book.

    I have read and re-read this one so many times that my paperback copy is falling apart. Fantastic realistic characters and fantastic descriptions of the varying "Ages" that are present in the book. Read also "The Book of Tianna" and "The Book of D'Ni".

    Simple, delightful reading

    I first read these books back in high school, and remember absolutely loving them (especially The Book of Ti'ana). When I happened across the ebook version, all of my happy memories with these books came flooding back. Part of me wondered if my high school self was more into these than my adult self would be, but at $9.99, I decided to give it a try.

    No, the writing isn't perfect. There are some banal parts, and not every plotline comes to fruition. However, the delight that comes in watching three generations of D'ni and their struggles to craft "The Art" is enthralling, even today. What a gem of a series.

    AMAZING!

    This is a GREAT book! I could hardly put it down. The characters are wonderful-the story line is thrilling! The Book of Ti'ana was the best one of the three but all were really fun! It captures your attention and doesn't let go even after you've turned the last page. A must read for anyone that loves fantasy and other worlds!

It is a wonderfull story that includes magicle secrets, charicters that have ben described of as if they are real people, and a storyline to transfix the mind. It painted a magnificent picture in my mind, and I would recomend this book to any person.

    Magnificent!

    I loved this book, I saw this before my family went to North Carolina, it was this or one of the books at home that I had allready read. I read the first book on the plane, the second and third there. I could hardly put it down. I had never heard of Myst before I read this book, I love the consept of what they are able to do in D'ni.

    Surreal.

    Thank God they came out with this book! its nearly impossible to find all three of the Myst books separatly. While reading the Myst trilogy, i found that i could barely function in the real world due to my inability to quit reading the darn thing. very well written, very descriptive. somehow they captured that same feeling from the games and put it into written form. Makes you understand the storyline to the games infinitly more as well. you will find yourself dreaming of Myst.
