Summary

The first volume of the official novelization of the best-selling and award-winning video game Death Stranding, created by legendary game creator Hideo Kojima

Mysterious explosions have rocked the planet, setting off a series of supernatural phenomena known as the Death Stranding. Spectral creatures that devour the living have pushed humanity to the brink of extinction, causing countries to fall and survivors to scatter and live in pockets of isolation.

Sam Porter Bridges, the legendary porter with the ability to return from the world of the dead, has been entrusted with a critical mission by the President of the United Cities of America. He must journey across this ravaged landscape crawling with otherworldly threats to reconnect cities and people and rebuild America one step at a time.

if you like the game you will like the book

very similar to the game. plot is pretty consistent and you will get some greater insight here and there on certain characters. the vocabulary and character sections are welcome additions to setting the story. the reader does a good job, I don't have too strong an opinion on him but I feel he did fine. a great choice for fans of the game!

Phenomenal story overshadowed by a bad narrator

great story unfortunately the narrators voice is sooooooo dull. Struggled to finish due to this. I pre orderd and was so excited. The book goes into more great detail and is very entertaing. I hope in the future they choose a narrator with more enthusiasm.

Absolutely Incredible

Death Stranding is my favorite game, past or present. I was ecstatic when I saw a narration of the game. And narrated by Bronson Pinchot, one of my favorite audible readers. Thankyou so much for making this a possibility. I highly recommend this to others who have played Death Stranding or those who are curious about the world.

Absolutely loved this novelization of Death Stranding.
It’s perfect for after you’ve finished the game, a lot of the lore becomes clearer. Now onto part 2!
Keep on keeping on

Worth it

IT EXPLAINS SO MUCH MORE THAN THE GAME!!! Like I love the game but this makes minor characters so much more interesting
