I really enjoyed this work. A real love letter to geeks and fans of the '80s. The plot was very good overall, though I thought that there were a few places where the narrative seemed uneven. Will Wheaton did a masterful job reading the piece, far better than I expected. He really became the character.
I really wanted to enjoy this book. The premise was interesting and the narration was good. I had to put it down, however, because the author went out of his way to lay on the right-wing politics. It wasn't a big deal at first, but eventually it was occurring nearly every few minutes. I can understand giving a character certain beliefs and views, but when it's nearly the entire cast, done so blatantly...Look, in the end, if you don't mind heavy-handed political soapboxing, then this is an entertaining military fantasy. If you do, I suggest searching elsewhere.
