This book is completely formulaic, completely predictable, and solidly enjoyable. The villains are such complete caricatures, and they often act in completely stupid and inexplicable ways.
The complete and utter lack of surprises, and an ending you see from a mile away. It's not like I was in this for a compelling, edge of my seat thriller, but there are long sections of exposition that only serve to lengthen the book.
The narrator's slow ponderous voice was extremely tedious. He dredged out the material, and seemed to only be able to do one female voice, and about three different male voices.
Definitely! This would make a fantastic action movie. With loving close ups of the guns instead of tedious descriptions of them.
This book is simply phenomenal. One of the rare instances where listening to the book is even better than reading it.
The references peppered throughout this book read like a love-letter to 80s gaming, music, movies, and pop-culture. Truly an otaku's wet dream.
Will Wheaton does a phenomenal job bringing the characters to life and making each of them feel truly distinct.
