Wow I loved this book! The writing was superb and made even better by terrific voice acting by Wil Wheaton (I listened to this book via my audible.com account). The story is filled with references to the gaming and geek culture with a particular focus on the 1980's. Ultimately however the book is enjoyable because the story is well-told and filled with characters that the reader cares about. Great job by both Cline and Wheaton!
