You is a great novel, but the story starts to fall apart at times...

This has so many historical details that it reads like a documentary at times. Entertaining story, but it falls apart at the end.

An ex-computer geek gets a job at a computer game company run by two of his closest friends from high school, and finds a bug that runs thru all of their games, and which might ruin their company. Given his last (and first) book "Soon I Will Be Invincible" I was really expecting this book to be filled with geekiness, but have a solid core of storytelling behind it; which turned out not to be the case. This is basically about the underlying story of action-oriented computer games, and viewing it thru the lens of growing up with early D&D and Commodore computers, which just isn't enough to fill out this book.

"Everyone knew and nobody had to say it. How Simon’s mother was kinda crazy and poor, and Lisa’s parents were rich but had no interest in her whatsoever, and Darren was terminally pissed off at the world, and how I - well, no one ever seemed to be able to put a finger on it, but I was never going to be as happy as I was supposed to be. Everyone had a reason to want out."
