[Book Review] Goblin Quest

Jim C. Hines. Goblin Quest. 346 pages.

Seriously, READ IT!!!! I *ahem* stayed up ALL night reading it. It was hilarious, fast paced, had a great plot, and had me a emotionally involved with the protagonist. A great read. I can't wait to read more stuff by this authour.

It's a fantasy adventure story, only the main character is Jig, the goblin, who has been swept up into a quest for treasure by pure mischance. It pokes fun at RPG stereotypes, fans of D&D or GURPS will get a double chuckle.
