This book is a fantastic spin on the Alice tale, but instead of through the looking glass it's through the laundry basket, and Wonderland just so happens to be the internet. You'll find knights and trolls, spammers and cards, even gamers and gobliguanas. You heard me.
There's a good chance you'll see yourself somewhere in this story, if not several places, and so much rings true for the internet today.
As far as this book having been written by two different authors, you won't notice that within the writing, which is seamless.
Very much worth the purchase price!
I see one of the authors writing a short nonsensical piece filled with wit, cliche and cultural references and laughing hysterically in the process. He then e-mails it to his friend with dude-check-this-out gusto. I also envision alcohol being involved. His friend reads the piece and, thinking something along the lines of "this is great but it needs more fart jokes," adds a chapter of his own milking yet even more cliches out of the narrative. The first writer reads his friends addition and has to pause to clean Mountain Dew from his keyboard before he can respond due to an impromptu spit-take. Taking a beer in hand, the first writer proceeds to send the storyline off in the most improbable direction he can think of. He returns it to his friend with a healthy dose of "what now, smart guy." The second writer reads the latest installment, folds his arms across his chest, pulls a smug look and thinks to himself, "Challenge accepted." Wash. Rinse. Repeat. At some point they realize that they have enough material for a book and begin tightening up the narrative.
I am probably completely incorrect in my assumptions about the origin of this book. Except for alcohol being involved, I stand by that assumption firmly. The story unfolds in three separate but concurrent lines. It is fast paced and interesting. It is, as I believe the authors intended, a fun and entertaining read.
Here is their website. It is easily one of my favorite blogs. [...]
The technicals: The front half of the book is marvellously edited with hardly a misplaced comma. Well, except for that pet peeve of mine with commas following a sentence starting conjunction and an independent clause behind. This seems to be a fairly widespread error in comma usage, and I'll browbeat the boys about it later. Other than that, though, the front half of the book is almost squeaky clean. Definitely "A" work, and there were hardly any red marks on their paper when I got finished with that portion. However, the further through the book you go, the more errors crop up. Missing words or mistyped words, like "than" instead of "that." A few incorrect tenses here and there. Unstable formatting, mostly in that the indentations start wobbling back and forth. It's enough to drop the technical grade down into the high "B" range. Still, everything considered, it's a pretty good job and nothing that should give anyone any real problems. Especially the commas. There aren't a whole lot of other people out there that are likely to notice any problems with them.
As for the book, well...Read more ›
