Book Review: AFK

AFKAFK by Huckleberry Hax
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

AFK will only make sense if you’ve been in the virtual world of Second Life for quite a few years, as this ‘SL Classic’ book is 13 years old. My own avatar is over 14 years old, so I remember well the days when we traded our system skirts and hair for flexy upgrades. If you’re an SL scripter, you’ll probably enjoy the slick use of scripted objects in our protagonist’s work as a private investigator.

The story is intriguing, and filled with drama, arguments, philosophical discussions, heartbreak, jealousy and revenge.

I took a few points off my review as the heavy use of chatlogs made my eyes and mind weary. But, your mileage may vary.

Gotta log off now, RL needs me.
