    My inner geek well hidden behind tattoos and a swear word laden attitude is squealing like a little piggy over this gem because let me tell you, it was pretty fucking awesome and I hate that word.Julie is a feisty, no holds barred heroine and Jack is just bloody adorable Add in comics, Star Trek and Buffy that show still beats a lot of the modern crap about , and you have a brilliant little book.

    I loved LOVED this book This is the kind of geek girl lit that I want to see becomeandof a trend In fact, this needs to be a movie It s not every day you find a female geek character in a a book as not only a MAIN character but a likeable one at that Julie is a character you feel for, root for and want to go to Comic Con with It s a fun rom com that doesn t insult those of us who love to flirt in Klingon Do yourself a favor and read this book

    3 1 2 stars Fun novella, geeker then Geekerella would have been four stars but the main character Julie was kind of annoying and hard to identify with Bumped up from 3 stars for the Buffy extras.

  6. Kelly Kelly says:

    There were cliches and stereotypes, characters that were real and layered in really obvious ways the hot actor ruining the character he plays in the adaption of Julie s favorite comic book is actually an honest to goodness geek like her deep inside Yawn , but there were also some amusing bits, and yes, some recognizable characters among the cliches It was ok Read in one sitting, so not a huge commitment, in any case And Angel is so not Buffy s soul mate They re too fundamentally diffe There were cliches and stereotypes, characters that were real and layered in really obvious ways the hot actor ruining the character he plays in the adaption of Julie s favorite comic book is actually an honest to goodness geek like her deep inside Yawn , but there were also some amusing bits, and yes, some recognizable characters among the cliches It was ok Read in one sitting, so not a huge commitment, in any case And Angel is so not Buffy s soul mate They re too fundamentally different and will just continue to grow apart So there

    Years Decades of Star Trek, and this little novella is what finally made me notice that I, like the protagonist, consider The Prime Directive to be a completely valid philosophy to apply to most of the life I ve discovered on this planet Thank you Sarah Kuhn for giving such a quirky, interesting, entertaining voice to mildly misanthropic introverted geek ish women everywhere And for giving her a hot male lead, because every real world geek guy I ve ever know would rather have an FHM model on h Years Decades of Star Trek, and this little novella is what finally made me notice that I, like the protagonist, consider The Prime Directive to be a completely valid philosophy to apply to most of the life I ve discovered on this planet Thank you Sarah Kuhn for giving such a quirky, interesting, entertaining voice to mildly misanthropic introverted geek ish women everywhere And for giving her a hot male lead, because every real world geek guy I ve ever know would rather have an FHM model on his arm that a girlfriend who understands what he s talking about Erm, sorry, back to One Con GloryDespite being an avid science fiction fantasy reader and watcher, I never even developed an interest in playing Pac Man, let alone anythingcomplicated, so I ve never connected with this need to turn it all into an action movie Can I shoot it Can I shag it Can I blow shit up and steal that bag of gold Novels that dip into geekdom tend to be so focused on the game players viewpoint that its incredibly refreshing to see something with romance too set in this environment and for it to feature a con going protagonist who doesn t spend all weekend with a controller in her hand The list of reasons why I adore Julie is really, really long I wish the book had been 200 400 pages longer so that the story and characters could have been fleshed out properly What Sarah Kuhn has done with 100 pages is delightful and deserves room to grow, and any criticisms I have always boil down to the fact that at this short length it has no choice but to read like a movie script and not a novel It s also the first time a switch in formats in a book here it s Julie s blog vs Julie s 1st person voice hasn t felt like the author was trying too hard I also think One Con Glory is an elaborate non fandom specific RPS Mary Sue fanfic, but that s a compliment in my world Don t pretend you wouldn t love to be locked in a room with the cast of Firefly Don t pretend you don t have a written list of things you d do to with them With illustrations

    One Con Glory is an entertaining but very short trip through the world of nerd culture It s obvious that the author has a real love for this world, and it s always great to see someone who actually cares enough to get the facts right But to be perfectly clear, this is practically a fangirl fairy tale Even though the author swears that the main character isn t just a stand in for herself, it s hard to shake the feeling that this is a couple of explicit paragraphs and name changes away from bei One Con Glory is an entertaining but very short trip through the world of nerd culture It s obvious that the author has a real love for this world, and it s always great to see someone who actually cares enough to get the facts right But to be perfectly clear, this is practically a fangirl fairy tale Even though the author swears that the main character isn t just a stand in for herself, it s hard to shake the feeling that this is a couple of explicit paragraphs and name changes away from being the ultimate David Boreanaz slashfic And by that I mean that it turns out that the lead actor in the main character s favorite series is just as lonely and misunderstood as she is, and OMG only needs the right fangirl to come along to draw him out of his shell That sentence was a little snarkier than I intended it to be, but still, that s the gist of it.But even with that, this is still an entertaining book Like any die hard nerd will when reading One Con Glory, I felt like I absolutely knew all of these people And it s nice to read a story about comics fans without a single stereotypical lives with his parents, wildly overweight social outcast which isn t to say there aren t social outcasts here, but they re less broadly defined Slashfic leanings aside, the only real problem I have with this book is that it s very short, and a little slight Nobody s saving the world here All of the relationships are settled in the end, but still, I found myself wantingI like these characters and want to know what happens next.Although even if Sarah Kuhn doesn t return to these exact characters again, I d very much like to read asubstantial novel from her She has a good voice, and a firm grasp of the inner workings of nerd culture Is nerd lit a genre yet If not, maybe it should be And maybe Sarah Kuhn can write the first truly great work in it This isn t that book, but it s still worth the very brief period of time it will take you to read it
