really liked it

Honestly, I drunk ordered this book. I was browsing Twitter one day and this book came up. I can't remember how or why it did, but there it was. I ordered it and forgot about it. Several weeks later is showed up in my mailbox and I was excited to have something new to read, about the history of the Amiga! Well, that's not what this book is about, it's the story of a person and her life working on an Amiga, and being an amiga, the trials she faced in the 80s working on this revolutionary machine and the trials she's facing today, how your past can come back to haunt you and at the same time remind you that the past is what made you who you are today.

This book was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it more than I expected. The character development was solid and the timeline flipping was clear and easy to follow. I was left wanting to know what was going to happen to the protagonist chapter after chapter, and the ending of the book was good in that it was able to provide a sense of closure while still leaving me wanting more.
