Didn't we all have an imaginary friend or two growing up? Almost re-living my childhood but I had no clue about all that my iFriend could do.
You knew that in the end, from the very start, Budo was going to take the fall. But that was a real part of the intrigue: How would he "disappear"? Was there an iFriend heaven? Did it hurt to disappear? Could an iFriend save another iFriend from disappearing? And like every good book should do, you get all the answers in due time.
Matthew Brown's performance was integral to selling all the concepts that the rest of us grew out of. Through his timing and a true commitment to closing the deal, he pursuades us to drop those walls we had constructed at 11, 10, 9 or maybe even 8 years old, in order to grow up. Matthew Brown's storytelling transported me back to days long past, to the hot, muggy summer days in South Carolina where, all a 10 year old Southern boy had to do to take an ok sort of day all the way up to a day to never forget, was stay out of Moma's way, playing the day away with your most reliable pal. 3333
Knowing that the final lines are soon to be written, savor these like no story you have ever read.
I listened to the abridged book when it was all there was. But now, listening to all the missed storylines, all the skipped happenings, it is as if I never listened to Snow & Ashes at all. I'm going to re-listen to Echo in the Bones now. I just wish #8 could be finished earlier.
Classic OSCard. Truly along the lines of all his great works. Cannot wait until Book 2.
