Finished it a couple days ago. Overall it was a good adventure. I'll leave it at that until you guys finish it.

Remember Youngs cheated and did audio book.

Don't slow down for me! I know it's a quick read so go ahead and finish it.

There's quite a few things in this book I felt were written for the movie adaptation and not detailed/explained enough in the book.

I read that part quite a few times, because I thought I missed something.

I agree with your sentiment on pretty much everything.

I thought it was funny on Tested podcast a few weeks ago when someone asked Norm if it was good and there was a slight pause in his voice and then he said yes. Awkward because Andy is a friend of the show and Adam Savage.

Listening to it vs reading it I was able to gloss over a lot of the flaws.
