  • Okay up front, this is I admit a ludicrous book I get that However I don t get the angry reviews and the emphatic one star ratings I mean, it s a book based on a computer video game What did you expect.If you ve read many of my reviews you ve seen me use the term, brain candy well this is brain cotton candy, as light as possible But it s kind of fun Just go into it expecting a book based on a video game The extensive creatively handled use of historical people and events is part of the fun here [...]

  • I was genuinely surprised by how much I liked this book I bought it mostly because I am somewhat obsessed with the game, and I wanted Ezio, now please I expected that at best it would be bearable to read because I don t tend to think too highly of novelizations of either movies or video games But this was really good and fun Most of the story in the book is in the game as well, so the plot wasn t particularly surprising But there were a few additional details like, say, Leonardo s homosexuality [...]

  • Not bad, or rather not what I had been expecting It s okay overall but could have been better Hopefully the next book is an improvement.Since this book and series is based on a video game and the author is known for penning newsstand pulp thrillers, I thought the combination would turn out to be some kind of pulpy disaster, so I was pleasantly surprised to find a decent plot driven, light historical fantasy story about the life and times of Ezio Auditore Those who ve played Assassin s Creed II a [...]

  • I love these books I like the games too Maybe one day my book Kandor The Warrior might become a game Lol I did watch the film and I really like Michael Fasbender but, I was disappointed Then again the books are always better than the films

  • I first heard about Assassin s Creed from my brother in law He loves the games, was constantly commenting how Ezio was badass, how his moves and kills were impressive, and how the graphics were fantastic When the novel came out, I spent months craving it, only now having the courage to buy, and finally, read it.Oliver Bowden transports us to Italy, 1472, where a young man is about the learn the power and secrets of his family After a brutal attack and betrayal, Ezio takes the name Auditore to a [...]

  • Written like the narration of a computer game quest mission.He turned left, he saw someone, he turned right, he saw a door, he opened the doorIn my opinion there is no character growth, no emotional involvement and the various Italian words woven into the story are quite unnecessary.

  • Perskai iau ir likau nesuprat s tai ar vistik ia buvo knyga, ar scenarijus I tikro, kaip greitas ir veiksmo kupinas skaitalas, Renesansas man visai patiko Id ja ir fabula visai neblogos, pagrindinis herojus toks pozityvus, kad beveik nebe anti herojus, padorus kiekis istorini fakt ir ar persona tikrai nemai o, na ir apskritai a esu i t moni , kuriems Italija visada gera id ja Kita vertus, daug kart esu akcentav s, jog esu greito tempo ir siu eto vystymo alininkas nors tam tikromis s lygomis ir a [...]

  • I bought this book just because I love the game I was surprised to see that the book was true to the game The conversations is almost the same and the environment is described just as you saw it in the game Bowden did a good job in filling out the blanks that wasn t included in the game and it was fun to read indepth of Ezio s thoughts and life, especially in his younger days.The thing I thought was strange with this book is that this actually is the second game, but it is the first book of the [...]

  • If you like Assassin s Creed, the game series, don t even touch the books Better yet, if you like to read, don t touch these books either They are just the scenarios of the AC games, with absolutely no input nor creativity, nor depth from the author.And don t get me wrong, I love the game it is written after AC2 is one of the best AC games out there the best being AC2 Brotherhood and I expected that a book would contain something other than a boring transcript of the game content I m still shock [...]

  • Each artistic medium has its own specific ways of catching your attention, engaging you and transmitting its information For video games, that s a lot of action For books, it s the little details and insights Assassin s Creed Renaissance is a blow by literal blow retelling of AC II, the game Which would be great, if it managed to act like a book, and not like a written video game To explain the difference if this novel were required to write about Leonardo da Vinci s painting sessions, it would [...]

  • DNF I was advised against this, really And the reviews were shitty too, therefore low expectations is maybe why I couldn t get into it But you know, curiosity is a bitch and so is this book I didn t like it at all Don t read this, play the game.

  • I m sure I would have reviewed this differently if I hadn t played the games As it is, the bulk of this book is simply a retelling of the events that happened in Assassin s Creed II and some of the memories in Assassin s Creed Brotherhood, and having played those, reading the book after the fact proved to be a vastly inferior experience This is why I don t usually read direct novelizations of movies or games, etc with the exception of Star Wars Ep 1 6, but that s about collecting the hardcovers [...]

  • It is hard to rate this book, because there are so many factors to consider I have never played or seen anyone play the game, my only meeting with the Assassin s Creed has been in the film I watched last week.This book seemed like a mix of various things sometimes it reminded me of the Three Musketeers, sometimes of the Da Vinci Code The writing had its hiccups and made it visible where one quest ended and a new one started, but that was still fine, if we didn t look at the big picture In honest [...]

  • God, did it seriously take me over a month to finish this Eh Such is life It was a bit clunky in places and got bogged down in its own detail and descriptions from time to time, but for being a book based on a video game this was very good I loved the historical setting and the people Ezio met, from da Vinci to Lorenzo Medici to Borgia And the fictional characters were wonderful as well Teodora and Paola were two of my favorites It was fun trying to pick out which were the play through bits vs t [...]

  • Even though I played the game, I found this book most entertaining I have noticed that a lot of people have read The Secret Crusade as their first book Which is totally understandable due to the fact that Altair was the first assassin in the game series However The Secret Crusade is actually the third book in the series still a bit shocked as you are but I think I understand why Bowden did this In the game Revelations, you go back learning about altiar s life, which is key of the game What i thi [...]

  • I wanted to read Assassin s Creed just because there will be a movie and I am really excited to see it However I expected something little different probably a good assassin who will not kill innocent people, haha , I still liked it A lot actually At the beginning I had a little bit problem to get into the story, but after few pages was easy to read the book and I enjoyed Ezio s journey I find Leonardo da Vinci quite interesting and I hope, there will be scenes with him in other books.Few thing [...]

  • Bah.The title may be badass but I never liked the main character Now, if someone would just write a book about Bookworm Adventures 2, then I might read it

  • DNF after the first chapter Writing was so bad and characters so shallow and lacking any personality or inner thoughts to make me sympathize with them.

  • Take it away, Lily For the first time in my life I was left to wonder which was worse the book or the film I didn t have to wonder too long, though They re both sucktacular So absolutely, underwhelmingly, astoundingly awful I ve never read anything so monotonous and FLAT in my entire existence.The video game exists in a different medium, you re probably too awed by the graphics and busy in fight sequences too worry or care about the story behind it Or maybe it just all comes together in a much b [...]

  • When I read the description for this book, my first thought that it maybe similar to the TV show, DaVinci s Demons There are certain aspects of the book that has similarities to the TV show The books strength s for me are in its characters How can you go wrong with guys like Ezio, Rodrigo, Leonardo, Niccolo and Mario Sound a little bit like Ninja Turtles Well, there are flavors of those guys in there too except no sewers.The story starts out with Ezio as a teenager of an aristocratic family in F [...]

  • Edited 11, November 2016My love for this book grew with every page I m very happy with the outcome of this book, it gave me an even greater understanding of the world of Assassin s Creed.There were some things within the story whilst playing the game that I was struggling to comprehend, and this book explained them for me This beautiful book is one great story of a young man who embarks on a journey to avenge his father and brothers who were killed by traitors He meets many new friends, and one [...]

  • I found this a tiresome read The way it was written really irritated me The character, Ezio, irritated me But the setting I liked.First I will acknowledge that this is a book based on a game It is wasn t I would compare this to the likes of Robin Hobb and Brent Weeks with little of a positive nature.You don t need to have played the game, just various games, to understand that the style is very game like I think generally, that it does follow too much with a game like style It certainly leaves l [...]

  • I ended up liking this book than I thought that I would It reminds me of the Starz series, da Vinci s Demons I enjoyed the historical characters especially Leonardo da Vinci with his inventions.

  • 2.5 stars It s really sad I was loving this in the beginning but I just couldn t get into it after a while The beginning dragged and then I took a long break and I just lost interest in the story Picking it back up, I never got the same enjoyment out of it as I did in the beginning It s a really exciting story and I love the actual plot I think it s just one you shouldn t take a break from, if you easily lose motivation Still recommend this to history fans.
