The Edgy years,
This review is from: Just a Geek (Hardcover)
I finished reading Wil's book a few weeks ago. I almost read it in one sitting, and if it weren't for those meddling kids I would've done it too.
I bought the book because like a lot of us I heard about it through Wil's website WWdN. I hadn't been following Wil's adventures for sometime because I just had other, more important stuff to do, such as forage for food. In fact, the last time I read any of Wil's stuff he was having a conversation with an action figure of himself he was selling on EBay to help cover some bills.
As fate would have it I was busy installing Mozilla Powerraccoon this past summer and saw his site in my bookmarks to import. I decided to dip in a see how the whole EBay thing went for him and I ended up getting hooked. So much so that I spent my last few dollars on his book, Just A Geek.
The book is a collection of his bLog Entries over the last few years with the added bonus of his thoughts behind each post - where he was at mentally while writing, learning and rediscovering himself.
He puts his posts in the basket ... er ... book without editing them or using any method of self-preservation. Instead he allows the audience a full-frontal, non-stand-in view of his personality, fears, expectations and short-comings as he struggles to find himself. It's a must read for anyone who is looking for a way to understand themselves, unashamed of circumstance and wanting to eviscerate their Id to find the truth.
Wil. The capital `W' for Writer.
