I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
I'm finally giving this book a try after owning it for ages. It's based on a computer game - I started with the second game in the series, Gabriel Knight: Beast Within, and never did play this one, so I have no idea how the book and game compare. Even so. I can hear the dialogue in the voice actor's voice, and I can practically feel the game puzzles. Gabriel just picked up a clock with six little moveable pictures on it, and I would bet that the original game required you to figure out the order in which to arrange those pictures. I may not have played this particular game, but this book is still Nostalgia City.
Unfortunately, my vague memories of Gabriel were correct. He's an annoying guy who thinks he's God's gift to women. Seriously, why can't Grace be the main character?
