Book Review – Tetris

Tetris book coverTetris by Box Brown

Have you ever played Tetris? If not, where have you been for the past 30 years? And, if like the majority of the world, yes, this delightful graphic novel might interest you. It depicts the somewhat strange and dramatic story surrounding the creation of Tetris and its rise to gaming legend. The book also expounds on the deep connection between art, games, and the human condition and how that connection played a large role in the creation and immense success of Tetris. I find that this story and its assertions about art and games almost had to be told through graphical means. The book itself is art. Overall, I highly recommend Tetris both the game and the graphic novel.

Okay, I admit, my first reaction when I read this was “WTF?” but upon further reflection I’m curious to see how it turns out. What do you think? Hit the comments to discuss.
