I found Spider God a bit too frustrating, How is this in comparison as far as the difficulty and such?

The first time I played this one, I died in the second room, as I recall. With that misstep out of the way, I made it to the end of the game on the next run, pretty much without issue. This is one of the books that has multiple valid paths through it, which is a plus, although certain choices can make things easier.

The bigger issue with this one for me was that about the time you cross the bridge into the town, the writing goes downhill very noticeably, with multiple typographical and grammatical errors (which may have been fixed in post-release patches), and amateurish writing and dialogue that doesn't gel with the content of the first half of the book. When I played this gamebook, it really did feel like it was written by two people, one of whom was clearly not as talented as the other.
