WARNING: There is no sex in this book. Your Kindle or other device will remain at a pleasant room temperature. At no point will your panties drop. Your significant other will be allowed to snore in peace as you read. Not too long ago, in a town that, depending on your current location, is either not super far or actually quite close... It is a time of chaotic hormones. Two nerdy gents home for winter break have discovered a female gamer at a midnight release. During the break, the gamer trio manages to reveal the game's secret boss, a hidden enemy with enough power to destroy anything in its path. Pursued by other gamers who want to be the first to beat this boss, George and Katie race to level up, and, in so doing, restore decency and sexual activity to their personal galaxy...… (mere)

It was hilarious!
Basically some college age gamers meet when a new game gets released. they become friends. a couple become more than friends. they have hilarious sidekicks. they team up to beat a hidden level. they all live happily ever after (or maybe since they still have to get jobs and finish college).

i saw a lot of reviews by offended gamers who obliviously took the book way too seriously. it's kinda like the movie Dude where's my car? not every person who smokes weed is an idiot or the movie couldn't have been made since the people who made it smoke weed. This book, like that movie, is an exaggeration of every stereotype with a lil romance and an actual plot thrown in.

i am not a gamer. I am a bit of a geek. i know gamers, geeks, and nerds. some of the characteristics reminded me of all of my friends who are gamers, geeks, and nerds. not EVERY single action of a single character was like me or my friends but there were enough familiarities for me to find it funny. Also i grew up in a town where there was not that many things for teens or young adults to do, especially if you did not own a car. So yes college kids basically did the same things they did when they were in high school when they came home on break.

i doubt any of the gamers, geeks, or nerds i know would be offended by the book. they are really smart but can still recognize a joke when they read it (which is rather rare for nerds). oh for the humor impaired the last bit is a joke based on a nerd stereotype. if you do not understand it, you are the stereotype.
