The premise of the three books dives into the history of the D'ni people, Atrus' ancestors. Atrus, being the creator of the island of Myst from the game of the same name.
Through the novels you see the personal stories of three characters that were important to Atrus' history, whether directly or indirectly. You learn about the Art, which allowed them to "create" worlds, and about the fall of D'ni.
I highly recommend these novels to those that have played any or all of the Myst games, as it adds important back-story with interesting plot devices all wrapped in an imaginative world that encourages seeing the "whole" of things. Every time I read it I'm inspired to write again! Definitely a must-read!
The series certainly is easier to understand if you have played the book series but it is not a prerequisite. They do a good job of fleshing out the world and painting a picture of what the charecters are like.
If you are going to read this series I, STRONGLY, recommend that you read it in chronological order. That is The Book of Ti'ana followed by The Book of Atrus and finishing with The Book of D'ni.
C'mon guys, please make The Book of Marrim, I am begging you!!
I hear a fourth book called The Book of Marrim is stuck on a back-burner somewhere. I really hope that gets published and will hopefully give the titular character the airtime she was robbed of in Book of D'ni.
Despite my irritation with the Book of D'ni, I thoroughly enjoyed the Myst Reader. It's excellent backstory to the games and (for the most part) an enjoyable read in its own right.
Other reviewers have written in ways far more elegant than I could ever hope for. They're however a couple of points I do feel worth noting. First one doesn't need to have any knowledge of the computer adventure game, which spawned the books. I have some small experience with the game, but as I'm not inclined to sit at my computer playing games I never solved the puzzle.
The second point, which was brought up by another reviewer, was the sequence of the books. The first book "The Book of Atrus" was written after the computer game became a smash hit. I think in writing the story or after it was finished the authors realized there was a greater tale to be told thus making it necessary to backtrack in the storyline. "The Book of Ti'Ana was that book. If you want to read the story in a chronological order (to the storyline) read book 2 "Book of Ti'Ana" first, then book 1 "The Book of Atrus" and finish up with book 3 "The Book of D'Ni."
This trilogy is the very best fantasy story I've read. I only which there could be more stories written about this great world known as D'Ni but the third book pretty much closes the saga out.
Strongly recommended both to Myst fans and to Fantasy or Sci-Fi literature fans.
