This is a good book, there is no doubting that. It is filled with all the common and even obscure references of the 1980s that people who grew up in the 80s remember fondly. I loved that aspect of the book, it made me want to sit down and find all those movies, songs and various other visuals of that decade and see them for myself. I think my favorite part of the book was the game itself. How that game is described and all the aspects of it just sounds like so much fun. With that being said it drags at times but even with that the author keeps the reader engaged with all the pop references.
