International department library
One of the best things I found out first days in my new occupation is that we have fully equipped International…understand English Library. It is only available for the students in the international department and their teachers 😀 They dont know what they brought up on their library when they hired me. I love fantasy books, stories, encyclopedia, classics, history, anything that feeds my hungry mind or soothes the bruised soul. Before our fist “head teachers meeting” on Monday I was already in the library minutes before and scanned all possible treasures I will take home and call them my precious – at least for a while.
Diablo – Book of Cain.
First thing that strikes you is the incredibly manufactured hard cover. With embossed Demon face bulging out of it and roughly cut pages. After first touch I knew I WANT THAT BOOK. It was whispering, talking to me:
“Take me, Martin, take me with you. I know you will take good care of me, I want you and you want me. Take me with you, read me… the Book of Cain”
…and feel the adrenalin rush when staring in awe. I instantly fell in love with the book. One of the reasons is the attention to detail. It really looks like a journal or a treatise tainted with personal experience and many personal ideas of the writer. Scribbles and side notes with explanations and thoughts…Deckard is throwing on us his gloomy visions and colorful descriptions of demons along with words of wisdom no player could obtain. The whole text is compact though and precise in explanation of things exceeding the Diablo 1 and 2 saga as you know it from the game itself. You will finally realize who is the tragic Dark Wanderer and what was Marius’s role in all this epic adventure. Uncover the tangled history of the Mage Clans and discover truth behind Horadrim order. Although short and predictable in its content, this book resonates with magic and arcana.
