If you are a geek, gamer or techy, I highly recommend you treat yourself to this book. Without giving to much away, think Snow Crash meets gaming and had a baby born in the 80's. also, Will Wheaton does an amazing job narrating this book. Good job Audible and crew for making such an enjoyable expierence.
Wil Wheaton is the perfect narrator for this. The book is soooo much fun! I cannot wait for the movie, hope it does the book justice. I might listen to it again soon.
All i could think about for the past 3 days was getting back to this book. it absolutely utterly and astonishingly amazing! This one will absolutely be in my collection and will be read over and over and over again for many years to come. I'd definitely pick it up right this second if I were you! You're in for an amazing adventure!
Initially, I didn't think this book would be anything special. But the character development and progress of the story kept me guessing while entwining an awesome adventure that uses 80s pop culture nuggets through out. I loved it!
I did not read the print version - I only did the audio, and I loved it! Will Wheaton made this story come alive.
In a way, it reminded me of some of the novels I've read by Alan Dean Foster.
I'm a hopeless romantic - so the last scene was my favorite.
But the final battle scene was also awesome.
Heavens no - this is > 15 hrs long.
I am so glad I got the audio version and not the "paper" version. I enjoyed listening to Mr. Wheaton narrate this - he made the story come alive. Given all the ... well, cliches and Marty Stu issues - I may not have made it through the "paper" version.
