The TV show is MUCH better. This is a very poorly written book. The ending is ridiculous. Waste of a credit.
The narration is a little dry, but the story is very memorable. This short story is well worth purchasing!
The dry British sense of humour in this book, in a modern up-to-date context is a lot of fun!
It's written in the style of "Ready Player One", but the writing is far worse. I'm in the target audience (early middle-age computer geek growing up in the 80's), so I found it an entertaining guilty pleasure. The writer has a poor vocabulary though.
Much more than just a description of exciting battles. Very honest & very personal as well.
This isn't fine, subtle literature. It's action-packed, violent, gory--not at all nuanced. Like a summer blockbuster movie--fun, but totally non-memorable.
This is an extremely well written book. Although I haven't enjoyed some of Wil Wheaton's narration in other books, this one is absolutely perfect for him. No wonder that this book has become a classic for scifi geeks!
The only problem for me was that, as an avid Adam Carolla daily podcast listener, I'd heard 99.5% of the stories in this book several times. Though there was very little new, Adam's delivery is always entertaining.
Much better-than-average scifi writing. Fascinating premise in this series. Looking forward to reading the next one!
Almost unlistenable. The premise is interesting, and the take on it in a "South Park" episode was extremely amusing. This book is the opposite. The writing is bizarre and unfunny. Not recommended at all.
Very enjoyable. A very entertaining presentation of a potentially very dry topic. Definitely recommended.
