    "It is my belief that A Book of Creatures could be the definitive resource for learning creature lore. I tend to lose track of time when I'm browsing the site because there's so much creature knowledge to gain."

    "This book taught me about many different legendary myths throughout human history. It's an e-book so I didn't have to worry about ordering anything physical. The book has tons of information about lore and myth and I found it quite interesting."

    "An endless source of information. You'll get everything there: the good, the excellent, the bad, and the highly dubious. But if you're the sort of person who can function without being 100% sure of everything at all times, you'll love Wikipedia for the sheer amount of resources, and for the sometimes top quality info it brings to you."
