    1. I almost can't review this objectively because Dishonored is my favorite singleplayer game of all-time and Emily Kaldwin is fastly becoming the fictional character I love the most out of the million fictional characters I adore.This was such a good installment to the series, true to the game yet still offering validity to both high chaos and low chaos players, and adding so much richness and depth to the characters and location we have come to know and love in the game.The villain was believable [...]

    2. For years we were waiting for a novel based on a video game that would be worthwhile. And the big news is: We will have to wait some more. Corroded Man is bad. I hate to say it, but even embarrassingly so. Cringy fascination with the original unfortunately does not end with the fact that author ventures outside of locations seen already in the game for only about two pages and that he reuses almost every character he can. It follows even the original's video gamey form - so protagonist spends mo [...]

    3. I can't believe I finished this book in a day it was just so GOOD. So many good things just. so much good. Thank the Outsider for this book.

    4. "Dishonored: The Corroded Man" is a tie-in novel for the "Dishonored" video game series from Arkane Studios (the developer) and Bethesda Softworks (the publisher). It is set between the first game, "Dishonored", and the sequel it was released a few months before, "Dishonored 2". Like most video game tie-in novels, it's not particularly good, but neither is it offensively bad.Just as in the games, the worldbuilding and aesthetics are compelling, but a novel such as this is a much poorer vehicle f [...]

    5. I'm rather wary of video game fiction as a general rule. Not because I don't want to give it a try but because so much of it is a shameless cash-in. There's exceptions, mind you, but they tend to be diamonds in the rough. Nevertheless, I wanted to give this work a try and see if it was better than the forgettable Wyrmwood Deceit comic book. I'm a huge Dishonored fan so I was hoping Adam Christopher would do a great job. Did he? Well, he did an entertaining job, which was better than I expected. [...]

    6. I wanted to enjoy this, I really did, but this was a tedious and annoying read, I'm sorry to say. The Dishonored universe is one I love and I would have been happy if it was just that the writing was clumsy and the plot predictable, but then the author couldn't get the most basic facts right (your chest expands when you breathe in, not out, how do you get this confused?) and wrote Emily in the most paternalistic, pat-on-the-head way possible, and I didn't have a good, or even interesting time. S [...]

    7. The Corroded Man is everything that I wanted a Dishonored tie-in book to be and more. I think that it bridges the gap between Dishonored and Dishonored 2 brilliantly, explaining how and when Emily transitioned from a defenceless child to the capable Empress that she is in the sequel. I haven't yet played the second game, but with the finishing of this book I find that I can't wait to play it and experience the Emily that is shown here.The actual plot for the book twists and turns throughout, and [...]

    8. Well I did my due Dishonored diligence and read the book that bridges games 1 and 2. Andah was ok. Good, but not great. I will give Mr. Christopher thishe definitely managed to capture the feel of the games quite well. Those who play the games will find quite a bit to like here. But therein lies a problem as welle I truly cannot see this book appealing to the general masses. It basically assumes that you played the first game at least, and really does very little hand-holding in regards to the b [...]

    9. Libro de ciencia ficción bien escrito, con detalladas escenas de acción, entretenido; aunque no me ha convencido, ya que al estar basado en un videojuego, parece que el autor no ha sentido la necesidad de desarrollar el entorno en el que tiene lugar el libro; dando muchas cosas (demasiadas) por sabidas. Por ejemplo, los antecedentes de los protagonistas; el país o ciudad o zona o continente o; el origen y las particularidades de los poderes que tienen algunos protagonistas

    10. I don't read a lot of video game books, usually because I find the writing varies from bland to downright awful (as in the case of the Assassin's Creed books), though I will say Halo: The Fall of Reach was incredible. Because of this track record, I didn't know what to expect from this book. Overall, it was mostly enjoyable and only disappointed me in a couple of ways. Things I enjoyed: - Emily sneaking out to roam the city. They already mention that in the Dishonored 2 trailer, so it was fun to [...]

    12. This book sucked. as a previous reviewer pointed out, the settings are all rehashed from the game, and the writing very much reads like the mediocre sequel to Dishonored we thankfully didn't get, right down to the in-text usage of game mechanics like Addermire Solution. The plot was eye-rolling, especially when it came to the antagonist, who I found unbearably cliche, and was Tyvian government set up as anti-communist propaganda?? Because bizarrely, I think it was. Something small but insistent [...]

    13. Where do I even start with this book Dishonored is one of my favourite games, I've completed it a couple of times and I am counting down the days until Dishonored 2 comes out. I have reached maximum level of excitement for the game. And only because of that excitement I have managed to finish this book. I was expecting to love it, being unable to criticize anything Dishonored related, but boy am I disappointed.Pros: - it's a fast read (it took me around 6,5 hours to complete),- from the 50% mark [...]

    14. 4,5* várakozáson felül jó volt. (oké, én nem fűzök túl nagy reményeket a játékból írt könyvekhez. az assassin creed pl. várakozáson aluli minőség könyvben.)aki szereti az ármányos, harcolós, kidolgozott háttérvilágú fantasykat, az mindenképp olvassa el. nem kell hozzá ismerni a játékot, sőt, szerintem ebben az esetben előnyben vannak, akik sose hallottak róla, mert nem lesznek előzetes elvárásaik, amiket esetleg nem tud hozni a könyv. történetileg is, nyel [...]

    15. 3 1/2 stars. had some issues with the stiffness of the writing and the treatment of emily at some points in the book. being able to look into corvo and emily's povs and to get a taste for the dunwall we'll see in dishonored 2 overall made it an interesting read though.

    16. This is like reading the game instead of playing it.So immersive and well-paced and well-written, I felt like I was there, crawling through the snows of Tyvia with Zhukov, or running on the rooftops with Emily, or fighting and blinking at Corvo's side.This book could make a fine horror story, too, but it is already very good, and gives justice to the Dishonored franchise. Also, love the tiny nods to absolutely gorgeous lore in game as they've put quotations from notes and books scattered through [...]

    17. The Dishonored games are amongst my most favourite games that I play. Corvo and Emily much beloved characters. Saying that, I was sceptical when I first heard there was a Dishonored novel. Not sure if Adam Christopher was possible of understanding and delivering a novel fans of the game would find acceptable. Video game fans are a rabid bunch, just look at how many movies have failed over the years.I am happy to report he has far exceeded my expectations. In 'The Corroded Man' Mr Christopher has [...]

    18. Though not the most gripping and well written read I've ever come across, Dishonoured: The Corroded Man was an enticing opportunity to explore Dunwall and the Four Isles once again. The characterisation was fairly strong, with Corvo in particular impressing me due to him being more than stern and edgy which is how I had feared his character would be interpreted, and instead being presented as a loving farther concerned for how his daughter grows up and for the future of the Empire he protects. T [...]

    19. It's hard not to be biased when thinking of how I'd rate this given my deep adoration for the Dishonored franchise. I love the world and it's gritty quality. It was cool to see how Dunwall has evolved since the Rat Plague and learn a little bit more about the lore of the world. It was fun revisiting some key locations from the first game and being able to visualise them so well whilst fondly recalling my own experiences there. I do however feel they played it a bit safe at the same time by keepi [...]

    20. La historia está bien. Es sencilla y muestra un personaje oscuro y enigmático que hace que quieras saber cuáles son sus planes. Es entretenida y fácil de leer, aunque a ratos el autor utiliza en exceso la redundancia en ciertas palabras y las comparaciones.Le pondría 4 estrellas si no fuera porque hay graves faltas de ortografía. Cosas como, le DIJO la espalda, en vez de DIO, y varias más de este calibre, hacen que el libro pierda seriedad. Cabe decir que el problema, obviamente, es del t [...]

    21. In reality a 2.5 star book (I really wish I was allowed to put half stars). This is a decent attempt at a video game tie in, probably better than most. But where the story is good fun, the writing falls down by being by Adam Christopher. I thought the same about this as I did about Seven Wonders. It is naive, and contains far too many action sequences. I spent the entire time thinking how it could have been done better - never a good sign - but also read it quickly and was at least somewhat ente [...]

    22. Having no prior knowledge of the franchise, I was able to read this novel objectively. I found the characters very likable and they were presented with surprisingly good depth. the multi-character perspective provided an insightful tour of the storyline, which kept my interest throughout the book. Corvo turned out to be my favorite character in the story, as i greatly admired his unrelenting devotion to his daughter the empress.

    23. As a fan of the game, I enjoyed this book. New storyline that takes place after the first game, but before the second. The Empress is introduced as an adult and having trained under Korvo for about a decade. The author did well balancing both characters in the book, giving Emily (the Empress), more page time and agency. While Korvo did step in and wrap up certain things in the book, she was instrumental in the completion of those goals.If the game is as good as book, I can't wait to play it.

    24. A great way to bridge the gap between the first and second games, I'm looking forward to reading the sequel. Though there were some changes to the pre-existing lore that aren't addressed in the book or second game, they're pretty minor. Well, the very existence of one of the antagonists is a change to the lore, but it's forgivable.

    25. A fun read for fans of Dishonored and it's universe with an original plot and cast of characters. Some strange decisions were made in that the author seemed to stick quite strictly to game mechanics as a part of the story (mana potions etc.) but I kind of liked this for the campiness it added. Fun for fans but not particularly deep.

    26. If you've played the game already then I fully recommend this book. Its mostly the mystery of whoever's behind everything but there is some action and a lot of references to the game if that's what you're looking for.

    27. I enjoyed revisiting the world of Dishonored but am agreed with the majority of the reviewers, I wanted something MORE than what I got. Probably worth reading if you're a Dishonored fan just to get some between the games info on what happens to a few characters (and for a few excellent scenes) but I'd be hesitant to recommend it to someone with no knowledge of the franchise.

    28. I loved this, but I'm also obsessed with anything Dishonored related. If you're either not familiar with the games, or have played them and didn't care about the stories and lore, then this book will probably not be as enjoyable.

    29. I love this video game series and when it became a book I was doing back flips. this book was so intriguing. I couldn't it down. I could picture every scene, and smell everything (even the bad stuff). beautifully written.

    30. It is illogical, somewhat poorly written and cliched. Then again, I love Dunwall, and the standard for PC game tie-ins is really low. What the short and cheap book gives is a few more enjoyable escapist hours in the city I've already spent close to 100 hours in.
