It is a time of chaotic hormones.
Two nerdy gents home for winter break have discovered a female gamer at a midnight release.
During the break, the gamer trio manages to reveal the game’s secret boss, a hidden enemy with enough power to destroy anything in its path.
Pursued by other gamers who want to be the first to beat this boss, George and Katie race to level up, and, in so doing, restore decency and sexual activity to their personal galaxy…
Review by Bob
Second, this is my first official Platypire review, and I could NOT have chosen a worse book for the task! Why? Elementary, my dear Watson! I am now supposed to string words together to create sentences, and they are somehow supposed to do justice this wonderful, geeky, brilliant piece of awesomeness! Alas, I must try.
Honestly, it’s a well-written book about engaging young-adult aged nerds, falling in love. It also contains the most beautiful love poem I have ever read in my life. Where could this possibly go bad? These characters weren’t like those in many books, where the heroes are perfect and Adonis-like. Rather, they were real. The bad guy wasn’t some super villain, hell bent on the destruction of said heroes. Nope. He was just that one annoying guy most of us have in our circle of friends for some reason. I adored them all, every last character. Well, except for Trevor and Clovis. You’ll see.
The plot was enjoyable and engrossing, with lots of fun references that had me laughing out loud. No, seriously, my kids thought I had lost it when I just randomly burst out in chuckles and shouted, “They’ve got Monty Python in here!”. Best time I‘ve had reading in a long time.
Only warning: Harsh language. It doesn’t phase me, but if you are sensitive to that, you might steer clear. Please, please don’t be sensitive to it! I am now fully convinced that EVERYONE needs to read this. I don’t know I managed to go so long without doing it.
So, in closing: I LOVE THIS BOOK, and I highly recommend it to pretty much anyone!
