Let me start by saying I bought your book earlier today; and I just finished it. That's right! I read the entire damn thing in a day. Your writing style was captivating to me and, as a formal WoW player with MANY similarities, hit me on an empathetic level that is hard to express. Thank you for brutally honest insight into all these intimate aspects of your life. Thank you. Carrying through with your 'writers affliction' probably took more courage than most of us here can fathom.
I'm an avid follower of you on Quora and your answers always give me perspective and insight into my own mind, my own behaviours, my own emotions and actions. I connect with them. You have a talent for not only writing, but for empathy and perspective; keep pushing for those ever-higher goals, Cole.
For The Horde!
Somehow one evening, I've managed to stumble upon one of the hundreds of chapter drafts written by Nicolas Cole while looking for a personal story I could relate myself to. It's been a long five years of being trapped, alone and misunderstood. Reading his book has helped me justify the value of those years, and hopefully this book will be an inspirational read for anyone stuck in the same position, or anyone looking for a voice to sympathize with.
For those still on the fence, considering how long it took Nicolas Cole to write "Confessions of a Teenage Gamer" (5 years), I assure you, taking a few moments to check out this book would NOT be a waste of your time.
Through his brilliant story telling, Nicolas paints a vibrant, hilarious, and refreshing picture of adolescence during the birth of the internet and Massively Multiplayer Online games. Describing his own successes and struggles, the author shatters stereotypes about gamers and challenges assumptions about the life lessons and values that can be learned by playing video games.
Parents, adolescents, and adults alike can benefit from engaging in the critical self-reflection practiced and demonstrated by the publishing of this story.
