I am a fan of Felicia Day’s so it is not difficult for me to love her memoir. Her writing style is similar to how she presents herself in interviews and online; she’s conversational and self-deprecating. Definitely a quick read here.
While she does cover her homeschooled childhood & teen years, her college experience of having her mom drive her to UT Austin, and young adult dreams of being discovered in Hollywood, it’s her essence of geek that ties this book together.
Her love of computers, technology, games, and the internet is a recurring theme. Reading about her first experiences with using a dial-up modem and meeting people in chat rooms had me laughing, sometimes out loud.
