I'm a geek-of-all-trades. Basically this means, I have at least a cursory knowledge of almost any geeky subject, and more often than not an extremely in depth knowledge of said subject. I do a lot of vlogging these days, sometimes about books, mostly about other things.

Rule 34

Rule 34 - Charles Stross This book ends with one of those "Oh, that makes so much sense!" twists. It may not be as exciting as a "OMG WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!?" twist, but arguably as satisfying. The 2nd person narration takes a lot of getting used to and made me feel like I was playing a tabletop RPG... one in which I had no control over the characters. It was jarring for the first ~30% of the book, but was effective for the story in the end.
