The writing on this book seemed a little dated to me and there was nothing that made it suspenseful or grabbed me. The story also seems to get side tracked which made it hard to follow in parts. I wouldn't recommend this book.
I love this series and I loved the story but narration by Jason Dohring was terrible! It was so off, it completely took me out of the story. Sophie Turner was fine, although the accent is a little weird. That being said...I can't wait for Dark Artifacts to start!!!!
I am a certified nerd girl! I love anything to do with pop culture, movies, music, comics and most importantly, video games, espically if they have to do with the 80's. So I was excited to say the least for this book to come out and I was NOT disapointed! This book totally spoke my lanuage, it took all my favorite things and mashed them up into one book. There was an early scene where the main character describes the feeling of playing videogames that made my hand fidget and start looking for the nearest controller. You could definatly feel the authors love for the subject matter in every chapter. Also, it wouldn't be fair if I didn't mention Wil Wheaton's narroration, which made the book a blast to listen to! This was by far my favorite book I've listened to this year. So please Ernest Cline, from the bottom of my nerdie heart, write another book and soon!
I LOVE Nora Roberts...like hardcore....I find her writing to be highly superior. The being said, this was probably the worst book of hers I have ever read! I was so disappointed, not in the story but the flow and writing itself. I found myself feeling that most scenes were rushed and cut short, which is very unusual for her. In one instance there was a small plot line that was randomly thrown in at the end with explaination. Overall, it left me confused.
