What can I say about this book? A bunch of nerds running around Medieval times pretending to be wizards, but with real powers. Can you imagine a bunch of nerds, getting together with unlimited power? If you can, then you can imagine some of the humour in this book. That said, though, I found this book to be original and quite clever. Martin is the latest addition to arrive in Medieval times after finding a mysterious computer file that lets him travel through time (among other things!). He surprised to find that he is not the first to find the file, or travel through time. He also finds that there are rules and immediately undertakes his wizard training with the remarkable Phillip, a rather cantankerous wizard who was one of the first to find the file and to travel to that time. As long as Martin remembers not to break any rules or make the obvious joke, all will be well - much better than the alternative, which he is reminded of on a regular basis by pretty much everyone!
Really a very funny book. I won't say much of the humour is that sophisticated, but that is part of its charm. I loved the characters, especially Martin, Gwen, Phillip and the wannabe Author, Tyler. I can't wait to read Tyler's book, if it ever gets published in the real world - assuming they can actually fit the title on the front page! Definitely a book for fans of Douglas Adams or Christopher Moore. Some parts were laugh out loud funny. Also enjoyable for young adult readers as my teenage son also thoroughly enjoyed it.
