Has anyone read these to give me a good opinion of whether or not I should try and get my money back?
I read it. It is kinda chessy but since I buy anything and everything hack related I kept it. If you dont like it, then just return and get your money back. Its not like the novel is canon anyways. Just go play the game.
The novel was the original story.
Wrong on being wrong. You and The Enigma are both right.
The novel WAS the original story...that is, the very first intended story the developers and writers thought of and created before actually working with the games. The "original", "first" story of G.U., you could say.
However, the story from the G.U. is the CANON one, the actual story that happened in the .Hack universe and that relates to every other canonical event...the actual story you should learn and be paying attention to, if you want to know what really happened, the real events that affected the .Hack story.
The novels talk about "what was originally intended to happen". The games talk about "what really happened". Novels might say the original story...but it's a non-canon story for the series.
