I loved it too. I wasn't sure at first, many game based books fail, but after buying it, I couldn't put it down. It was great.

I've been debating on whether to get this or not (I'm reading so many books right now, I don't need another). But since there's been some good things written about it, I'll probably end up grabbing it.

It is funny that you mention Master Chief's identity, or name because I beat Halo again last night to watch the movie and I noticed that he takes off his helmit right when the camera pans away and obstructs your view of his face. Obviously intentional but I never noticed it before.

I feel like this is Dr. Claw all over again. :D

Actually, Bryan...the book was available shortly before Halo was on the shelves. I heard it was a really good book...I'm really considering picking it up :)

Heres some helpful facts about Halo, and its story line.
(My friend told me this, Im going to buy the book soon)

Halo is closely related to the bible.
Master Chefs real name John 3:16 I think thats it.
Halo is closely related to a old Bungie Game.
(I think he said Captain)The Captain has metals from a old plane-shooter type game bungie made.

I will ask him more about it tommorow, untill then Game on!

John 3:16?

I'll give you the John, but if I am not mistaken his ID number was 117. Is that what you mean?
