Dubbelleven van een gamer
RL XP in WoW
by Ineke Verheul
About the Book
World of Warcraft as the context of a novel.
What is it that's so fascinating about an online game? For everyone who, like the author, is a regular visitor of the virtual world of an on line game the answer to this question is perfectly clear, but it's hard to explain to people who never play games . The best way to get it is to just experience it yourself, but the second best way is to experience it by reading a story like this.
This book is in Dutch, apart from the chat parts (and there's a lot of chatting in WoW!).
For a great part of my life I've been playing games; mostly adventures, but for the last couple of years I've been hooked on World of Warcraft, like all those other millions of gamers. Since it turned out to be very hard to explain to people who never play games what's so fascinating about a game like this, I decided my next novel should be about this fascinating world next to the one we all know. The book is in Dutch - as the title suggests :) Other books I wrote are The tenth life of Jim Morisson, a biography in fiction form (in English), Malice, a Dutch novel and a children's book on Joan of Arc. 'De strijd van Jeanne d'Arc'. The work I'm doing now is the perfect combination of work and hobby: advise and research on games in education. Apart from writing and gaming I love to spend my spare time on singing, preferably jazz.
