What I Like and Dislike About Gears of War: Aspho Fields

What I mainly like is how the book is a prequel to the video games series. Also how the book describes each individual characters background and what they did in their daily life before joining the C.O.G. (Coalition of Ordered Governments). What I disliked is that each chapter either flash forward to present time, then the next chapter would be about the past.


Would I Recommend Gears of War: Aspho Fields to other Readers

Yes, I would recommend this book to readers. Due to the fact if you don't want to play the game, but read the book series instead that is optional. I also recommend to play the video game series (if you have time) after you read each book to catch more information between each book. Since the books are both prequels and Epilogues.
