    I’m pretty filmilair with the author’s screenwork – I loved his “Fanboys” movie – but I had no idea he had even written a fiction book. In fact, I hadn’t even heard of this book until I noticed it listed on the schelude of books to be reviewed on this cool AM radio show I follow that focuses on new books — its called The Book Report. I’m not sure if the show is carried on all AM networks, but it is here in Boston and if all else fails, you can always check The Book Report website since its lists all the stations, the book schelude, and portions of past broadcasts. Either way, this review and The Book Report will probably convince me to give this a try.

      Yea, I’ve watched Fanboys and it was a good geeky movie. If you enjoyed that you’ll enjoy this book. It’s fun, lighthearted (for the most part), not terribly deep but does touch on “real issues”.

    Yeah, this book is pure joy! I pretty much read it in one stretch too. It’s not deep by any means, but it hits all my geek buttons.

    You know Cline is supposed to be doing the script (or least, he gets the first pass at it), right? He came to novel writing from screenwriting, and the book seems like it was written with the movie in mind, so I’m hopeful for something cool.

    • Jon says:

      No, not deep – but fun. I don’t always need to ponder the fate of life, the universe and everything.

      And I was not aware that he was writing the first pass of the screenplay. So yea, probably will be much better than normal!
