This is the first book I've really been into since high school. It was everything I expected and more. The twists with some of the characters was fantastic, and Wil Wheaton doing narration was awesome. Especially when he read his own name, I got a chuckle out of it. Loved the 80s references and honestly some parts gave me goosebumps when the author brought in a new reference of a game or movie that I loved as much as the characters did. Fantastic.
This is a great page turner. It has the dystopian feel of Hunger Games and Divergent, the clue-gathering mystery of the DaVinci Code, the spirit and nostalgia of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and the universal message of The Giver. It was so much fun.
on a quest to listen to the classics with a few others sprinkled in.
The author is an atheist and preaches his religion early on by comparing God to Santa Claus and the Easter bunny. He states that evidence of evolution has been proven all around us. He goes on to say God and heaven are bull s***.
The author could have left his personal religious beliefs out of the book.
I thought it was an interesting premise. This was my first experience with Wil Wheaton. He did a good job. Overall, the book started out well. But, when you start blaspheming God, that's enough for me.
I was really looking forward to this book. It has a lot of great reviews. I'm a fan of science fiction and the book grabbed me right away. However, I cannot support an author who compares my God to Santa Claus and the Easter bunny. Thankfully, Audible allows returns. There's plenty of good science fiction out there that that is not God offensive.
