Catie Nice!

Vinaya You caught me. I'm secretly a jolly-looking eighty-year old man with a white beard and a penchant for red felt. Oh, and I breed reindeer in the North Pole. (view spoiler)

Flannery I KNEW IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


message 5: by Amber (new)

Amber Great review Flannery. Sounds interesting.


message 6: by Eric (new)

Eric Well that has my vote, I'm in!


message 7: by Flannery (new)

Flannery Eric, I have a feeling you'd love this.


message 8: by Crowinator (new)

Crowinator I am so looking forward to this book. I hope my future will be filled with 80s references too. Love the shoutout to The Westing Game in your review -- that used to be my favorite book when I was a kid.


message 9: by Flannery (new)

Flannery Me, too:) I still think the ending was so clever. Do they have RPO at your library yet? You should read it before it goes into circulation since it came out on Tuesday. It will only take you a day!


message 10: by Stephen (new)

Stephen Great review, Flannery. Your "nostalgia porn" comment may be the best two word description ever for this book. I am reading it now (or rather listening to it read by Wil Wheaton) and my entire childhood is flashing before my eyes.


message 11: by Flannery (new)

Flannery He is the perfect person to narrate this book. I plan on listening to the audiobook sometime soon. I look forward to your review--I know it'll be a good one!


message 12: by Eric (new)

Eric OMG OMG OMG Wil Wheaton narrates the audiobook! Flannery! You just made my day!

AH Great review, Flannery. Sounds interesting.

Chichipio Time to confess: there's a tiny chance that I might not be a ferret. I hope you don't unfriend me.


message 15: by Emily (new)

Emily Flury "nostalgia porn"- nicely put


message 16: by Miriam (new)

Miriam mostly consisted of my friends and I goofing around and then accidentally wandering into an orgy and getting yelled at.

Like college!

Libby I can't wait to read it! Right now - I'm going through the top of my TBR list & I think you just helped me find my next pick! Thanks!


message 19: by Flannery (new)

Flannery I hope you like it, Libby! I thought it was lots of fun and such a quick read. There weren't any lags at all. Have fun!


message 20: by Eric (new)

Eric Did you see you can win a DeLorean! Which version of the book do you have, cause I had to pick up a print edition for this. https://www.youtube.com/w...more


message 21: by Flannery (new)

Flannery That link doesn't work:( I saw that the author is coming to Seattle in July so I'm totally going to go see him!


message 22: by Eric (new)

Eric Hmm, I think that was my bad, a copy and paste fail. Here's is the correct link. Do you own a physical copy? There's no way to win without it.

message 23: by Ryan (new)

Ryan Kountz It sounds great. I will be adding it to my reading list almost entirely on the passion of your review. Thanks.


message 24: by Phillip (new)

Phillip Millman Your comment about nostalgia porn is prefect. I found it to be a well written book.


message 25: by Melissa Ann (new)

Melissa Ann Great review! Love the comparison to WOW & Second Life...it's exactly what I thought of as well!


message 26: by Marc (new)

Marc Great review.


message 27: by Julie (new)

Julie Nostalgia porn. I love it!


message 28: by Grey (new)

Grey Nostalgia porn. You called it. Not that there's anything wrong with that. It was *good* nostalgia porn.


message 29: by David (new)

David Avatar orgies? Are you kidding me? I guess the thing that kept me from getting interested in this book is that I found none of the OASIS experience slightly attractive. I don't play video games any more (although I HAVE spent hours breeding chocobos on ps1 when I was 15).


message 30: by Destinee (new)

Destinee Gant I agree. I am a little nerd. I love video games and this was a great book. I wasn't very familiar to the 1980's references but for me it didn't take away from the book. I really wish this stuff was real and I think that added to the excitement I had for the book. Great Read!
