The setting and characters were very vivid once the flow of the plot was established. The narration may be a bit hard to understand at the beginning, but the reader soon becomes accustomed to the format and ensnared in the storyline. This book would be enjoyable for gamers, those who enjoy sci-fi, and anyone who likes quirky humor and unusual thought processes. For me, it had the side effect of making me want to play the fictional video games described.

If you like speculative sci fi as opposed to a space opera this is it for you. It also has that character and plot development stuff, but it tailors it so that the sci fi background and concepts are drivers instead of simply window dressing. A great example of sci fi in the spirit of Card and Doctorow. Ending was a letdown in my opinion. Weird metaphysical argument.

I don't know if it has been done before, but the irreverent way the lead character dealt with the aliens was quite refreshing and funny. The entire premise and plot turns were interesting. My only gripe would be if you are going to set a book in my home town, please actually do some research and give the locals something. It was Austin, Texas in name only.

I really enjoyed this book. It was fun to read and had a unique perspective on alien contact.
