I loved this book so much I read it twice in 6 weeks! I recommend it to everyone I can find! It was, without question, the best book I read in 2012. Possibly the best book I've read in a decade! Thank you, Ernest Cline!!

I am reading this book for the second time in six weeks! It is phenomenal! If you ever played Dungeons & Dragons, went to the video arcade, or loved '80s movies such as Breakfast Club, WarGames, or Blade Runner, you will LOVE this book! Go get it!!

I could NOT put this book down! What's great about this book is not just the witches and vampires and demons. It's about family and loyalty and staying true to who you are - no matter what. Love it!
