Off to Be the Wizard

Off to Be the Wizard by Scott Meyer is a novel about...

Amazon description:
It's a simple story. Boy finds proof that reality is a computer program. Boy uses program to manipulate time and space. Boy gets in trouble. Boy flees back in time to Medieval England to live as a wizard while he tries to think of a way to fix things. Boy gets in more trouble.
Oh, and boy meets girl at some point.

Off to Be the Wizard is a fun, comedic novel about computers, time travel, and human stupidity, written by Scott Meyer, the creator of the internationally known comic strip Basic Instructions.

Magic will be made! Legends will be created! Stew will be eaten!
I'll point out at first that I don't really care for science fiction and the reason that I bought this book s becasue it was $4 and becasue its author is the creator of the occasionally amusing cartoon Basic Instructions.

The Amazon description laid out the story quite well.  I'll add that I suspect that its the author's first book attempt, becasue, while its very readable and interesting, no one will confuse it with Lord of the Rings.  (I wasn't impressed with LOTR either.)

Its a fine and acceptable book.  But like I said in my last post, non-fiction is just better.

Its worth a read for some simple entertainment, and I'll recommend it as such.
