Review: “Just A Geek”


Just a Geek
by Wil Wheaton

I am not really a book person, but, I’m trying. I used to read a lot when I was a child. I learned how to read at a very young age and loved reading. But, as I got older, I got, well, lazy. Holly loves books, and obviously I want to impress her, so I’m trying, damnit.

Everyone knows Wil Wheaton as the guy who played Wesley on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Fortunately, he’s a touch more than that. He’s a geek, and he’s not afraid to admit it. He has hosted his own weblog for years at www.wilwheaton.net. He has also admitted to himself that he’s a writer. A damn good one, at that. “Just A Geek” is his second book and is mostly a collection of selected weblogs and backstories to go with the blog postings. Don’t let this fact discourage you in the least. It is a completely entertaining read, from cover to cover. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Great read.
