Finished this one today. It was a fun romp through my childhood. Oh, the #BASIC ... #memories. Fun for computer #nerds, old #millennials, fans of boy posses a la StrangerThings. No sci-fi, but it has that vibe.
The writing was enjoyable, but I fear I may be too far removed from young millennialhood to really have it speak to me. The characters were all so good - just the drama (which was totally appropriate for their ages) was just... so dramatic. G-d, was I so dramatic? Probably. Just thinking about it hurts. Just like Connell and Marianne hurt. Moral: Being young sucks, figuring out who you are sucks, heartbreak sucks, and then it‘s all over. FML.
