It is actually a reasonably easy book, and while they talk about a one true path, it is quite easy to find it. There's quite a few places where you need a fair amount of luck, and a good assortment of characters to interact with.

The book I received was the older version,and though not complaining about the quality of the book I received (it was in great shape),the actual product was not what was promised by the seller. Originally published by Puffin Books in 1983, the title is the fifth gamebook in the Fighting Fantasy series.

This time along we are whisked into a shady town of Port Blacksand with the mission of defeating the evil sorcerer Zanbar Bone! Furthermore, all pre-generated characters start with 6 Meals of Provisions, while a player-generated character would start with 10.

Ergo habe ich ab dem Punkt, an dem ich gen Turm lief, gehörig gemogelt und am Schluss dann alternative Wege, die ich zuvor noch nicht gegangen war, auch noch klammheimlich durchgeblättert. This is one of the few Fighting Fantasy books where it's quite easy to find everything you need for a successful completion as long as you explore thoroughly. Right at the very end, you have to choose to make a potion out of three combinations of ingredients, and you have nothing to go on other than just attempting to pick the right one. I’m fairly sure that the ball was a leaded weight, and it was actually an impressive feat of gladiatorial skill which set the body to its limits… but as far as I’m concerned, we were just playing volleyball, because I won with great ease and made some nice gold. There's also the one little detail of the recipe kill the final boss being wrong - you have to select two out of three items and there is no way of knowing which two.One of the things I want to mention is the artwork of Iain McCraig, which to me is perfect for this story; it is fantastical, whimsical, and just a bit dark, with many delightful details for the attentive viewer to pick up.

City of thieves is another great story by ian Livingstone where the reader decides the ending by picking hich page to turn to, it is a bit like a computer game i a book but much ore fun for children to read than stick withese eyes attached to a computer screen. Had such high expectations since this book's rated on the top list of the best fighting fantasy series.There's a real homogeneity to the various locations in the story, and it's a place that cries out to be mapped so that further adventures build and expand on what's come before. To a culture that sees a corpse as nothing more than a diseased shell to be destroyed, with the spirit being disconnected from it, then maybe it is not. He was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Technology by the University of Abertay Dundee in 2000, and in 2002 received the BAFTA Special Award for his outstanding contribution to the interactive entertainment industry.

Neither that it's not great nor challenging enough, but I'm not just in the mood for fighting among thieves and get duped by con men and orgs soldiers in the conspicuously crime-infested city in Titania. The warren of streets and dilapidated buildings has more character than Firetop Mountain, for example, and you can sense the smells, tastes and hustle and bustle of the place. It was now my firm opinion that Candle Street is the Arkham Asylum of Port Blacksand, so I promised never to go back there again, and instead walked in the opposite direction as fast as I could. You are approached by the mayor and asked to go and find a friend of his who lives in the city of Port Blacksand, the city of thieves that the title of the book derives its name.If you are one of those people, feel free to bump this review (as well as any other reviews I make of similarly linear books in the series) up by a full star or so.

In 1995 he led the merger of computer games company Domark with Eidos, the name behind the Tomb Raider computer games, where he is now Creative Director. It's like reading a book from the Choose Your Own Adventure series, but you have to fight villains by rolling 2 regular dice and find hidden objects in the story. Aus der Güte deines Herzens heraus (und gegen entsprechende Belohnung) ziehst du aus, um im verruchten Port Blacksand Hilfe zu holen.
