I normally avoid abridged audiobooks like the plague, but this one is good. Kathy doesn't read the book, but tells the story - it's very much like she's just sitting there telling you about her life. It's very real and VERY compelling.
I would listen to this again in a heartbeat! Wil Wheaton's performance took the story to a new level. I recommend this one frequently.
I loved the esoteric 80s references and was so proud when I caught them.
I absolutely would have listened to it all at once if I could.
The Oasis, the virtual world inhabited by the characters, seemed very possible. Often, I found myself thinking, "Yep. I can see that happening in my lifetime."
I was shocked to hear this referred to as a "comic" take on a post-apocalyptic world. I don't recall actually laughing during this book at all. The story had potential, but I don't think it was fully explored. The end was so abrupt, I actually rewound the book to make sure I hadn't missed anything. The performance was good, but I don't think it's worth a listen for the performance alone. Skip this one.
