One of the funniest books I have listened to. Wonderful narration. This is a book that the media will make EVERY effort to demonize because it so factually accounting the many, many instances of media bias. A must read for anyone who thinks the news media tells them the truth.
It was a good story concept, simply told.
No, this book was aimed at a different demographic.
No. Regrettably, the scenes that were meant to be stirring did not connect with me. It clearly does connect with many people.
This book should be easily accessible to young readers since it is told in a straightforward style, involves young characters, and avoids adult themes. Having said that, the backdrop of the story would seem to most appeal to those who were gamers in the '80s and World of Warcraft players today. This would place the demographic around age 40, as is Ernest Cline himself. I happen to have been playing Atari games in the '80s myself and continue to play modern FPS games. I don't, however, have the same nostalgia for the old days, nor empathy with game obsession or teenage romance, all of which would help to fully appreciate this book.
