I was skeptical going into this book. I have read a lot of bad historical fiction. But the author really pulled this off.
There is enough history weaved in the story that the whole thing is more plausible that just outright fiction.
The narrator puts in a good show too. You really feel like you are listening to the guy who was writing this biography of Lincoln. He was excited at all the right parts, and stated his references and footnotes with confidence.
Highly recommended. A very fun audio book.
I have been a big fan of Yahtzee's game reviews for several years so when I saw he narrated the book himself I had to buy it.
He did not disappoint. The story was better than I expected it to be. I am more of a Sci-Fi fan than Fantasy but I found this book very enjoyable.
I hope to see more books and narration from Yahtzee in the future.
This is currently my favorite book. I was a child of the 80s so attempting to predict plot points and anticipate trivial facts on a topic is some of the most fun I have had with a book in a long time.
Wil Wheaton is brilliant as always. I think hearing it in his voice really brings both the geekyness and nostalgia out of it.
The length is just right, not too long but long enough to really expose you to the universe. Although I really hated having it end.
If you have any interest in video games or the 80s or just nerd culture at all you should own this book.
