I enjoyed reading this collection of stories about Wil Wheaton's life although I must say there's nothing quite like listening to him read stories on his podcast Radio Free Burrito. I think what I like best about his writing is its dual layer.

The top layer of chocolate-y goodness is all about his experiences as an working actor. Being on a set, working with actors, auditioning for roles are all things I will never do and can't relate to. They're interesting for the behind-the-scenes glimpse of Hollywood they offer.

The nougat center is all about things I CAN relate to: missed opportunities, parenthood, nostalgia for the 80's, self-doubt, criticism, and just how scary it is to change course at 30.

Wheaton is so down-to-earth that he makes you feel like he's your best bud (I mean that in a non-creepy/stalker way) who's made it big but still remembers who his friends are. You laugh with him, you're nervous for him, you're proud of him, but most of all you want to read more.

C.S. Lewis once said that "Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one". If you're a comic book, science fiction, video game, roleplaying, or just fan of Wil Wheaton then you're in for some friendly writing.
Originally put together for a convention, this is a sampler of Wheaton's writings on different subjects. I read his website ([...]) and had his previous books, so I didn't get this one until it came out for the Kindle, and I just got a Kindle about a week ago. This was a treat, and not only for reading his work in a new medium.
There's stuff in here that isn't in his other books. Remember the video game Kangaroo? Whether you do or not, you'll be enthralled by Wil's writing about how he associates it with working on the movie "The Buddy System" and his friendship with Susan Sarandon and hearing David Bowie for the first time.
Yes, there's some stuff from his other books, but a lot that isn't. Either way, you're in for an enjoyable read.

I bought this actual book from Wil Wheaton at PAX East 2010, and devoured it. His writing style is easy to follow and flows nicely. I liked it enough that when the Kindle version arrived, I bought it so I can have the book with me to re-read anytime!

I recommend this book highly!

I enjoyed these stories so much that i had finished before I realized it. I really enjoy this gentleman's writing. He's had a wealth of interesting experiences, and has a great way of presenting them for the reader.

Another review suggested this title as a first taste of Wil Wheaton the writer. I truly enjoyed the shorter stories. I felt at times I was taken directly back to the 80s as a kid. I related to his emotional connections and giggled alongside the nerdy humor. So I am a few years behind in discovering this, but it works out because I can appreciate it more rather than gushing over a girly childhood crush and missing the point.

If you've never read any of Wil Wheaton's writing, this collection is a great way to start. I particularly loved the story about him figuring out that he wanted to write and the Criminal Minds production diary.
