OK, if you're a child of the 80's (I was still technically a teen for part of it!), then you will like this book. It got mixed reviews from my freshmen boys. The constant pop culture references from the 80's had me laughing out loud and trying to guess what was going to pop up next. The post-apocalyptic future with a severe division between the "haves" and the "have nots" definitely resonates today. Wil Wheaton does an exceptional job with the audiobook--especially "tongue in cheek" when he is talking about references to Star Trek. I will definitely listen to this one again--probably on my way to Toronto with my own kids this year.
