it was amazing
bookshelves: 2012

The author perhaps says it best:

“I always loved Roald Dahl,” Cline said. “And I thought, ‘What if Willy Wonka had been a video-game designer?’”

Virtual reality; a semi-dystopian near-future; a boat load of references to (mostly) 80s anime, cartoons, music, movies, computers, video games; a love interest; a great scavenger hunt; what else could one ask for?

This was the funnest book I've read in a long time which is why I read the entire thing over the course of just a few days.

Highly recommended!

Chris Why did you not tell me about this book before?

With all the hype it received, I would not have thought it needed pointing out. Plus my review has been right here for six years!

On a side note, my daughter bought me the book just last week, not knowing I had read it. I think it's time for a re-read!

message 3: by Chris (new) - added it

Chris The hype is probably the only reason I had heard of it. It's been on my to-read list for a year or two. But holy smokes, Batman...never read a book that "connected" on so many different fronts. It's crazy. It's like *I* wrote the book or something.
