's frenzied desires heats it up like 121 Giga Suns It spotlights some of the awesomest real and fictional geeks in history including Einstein Madame Curie Nerdist Chris Hardwick and Steve Urkel ; features classic science fiction and horror stories; the greatest experiences to have playing video games; gadgets gone wild; various top lists such as the hottest cryptids; and thin.

Get Your Geek OnUnless you're horndog Howard Wolowitz from The Big Bang Theory the words geek and lust are seldom found in the same sentence Until now bubWhether it's the most recent tweet from Felicia Day the newest book from Terry Pratchett or the latest anything from Joss Whedon the world is a smoking hot happening place for GeeksGeek Lust a humorous celebration of Geekdom. A book that's ostensibly a primer to understand all manner of geekiness yet it doesn't really know who the audience is The majority of the book is spent giving synopses of subjects that are 'objectively good' in terms of popular culture eg Star Wars Star Trek Doctor Who Jeff Goldblum which is fine if that's where the tone stayed throughout It doesn't A full page description of Ghostbusters which is only necessary for an alien suddenly jumps to three paragraphs about Troll 2 without setting up 'B' movies at all In fact almost nothing is set up There are headings that reach painfully for any pop culture reference it can but after that the writing jumps from property to property without transition or closing thought There are also occasional jokes that are far too inside blernsball if the audience is in fact people who are completely disconnected from pop culture Like the joke in the last sentence or a shout out to a minor recurring character from Red Dwarf Geek Lust is too inside to be enjoyable to pop culture novices too basic for fans that will get a lot of the jokes and too all over the place to make any comment on the fandoms it claims to be celebrating

    Packed full of geekdom from scientists to tv shows to comic books Langley covers everything he can think of to describe why Geeks love what they love Enjoyable if just a little chaotic

    Once upon a time being called a geek was an insult that many tried to avoid but now with advances in technology and a recognition that we can all be passionate about something without being a threat to society the tag ‘geek’ is now one many seek without totally understanding what it encompasses or thinking only those enthusiastic about sci fi are entitled to claim itIn this book the Author lays all that to rest by covering the geek aspect of everything from science through movies to books Yes all passionate readers out there you are worthy of the title ‘geek’ Using a combination of well researched facts and than a liberal dose of humour in some place this book will steer the budding geek through the never ending world of meanings facts and little known titbits that will have the reader thinking ‘hmm I never knew that’ If you are a misunderstood geek this book will after you finish reading it make an excellent primer for those around you who may think you have finally lost your mindI found parts of the book made me roll my eyes in disbelief after all who doesn’t know who Dr Who or Peter Parker are? But then I realised some out there don’t; I actually know someone who has no concept of the whole Star Wars universe and so this will be lent to them to bring them up to speed Along with breaking down geek culture into sections the Author manages to weave the sections together showing how everything is at some level connected with the others The Author is also not afraid of voicing their opinion of what they disliked about certain movies for example and this could cause a great jumping off point for discussion among lovers of these films; don’t worry book lovers he does the same for some of our much loved reads tooThis is a great book to pull out at gatherings throw pieces out there for debate before moving on to either watch play or read the item you’ve been debating As I said previously but will say it again here if you’ve got a friend or relative who is confused by the whole geek world that you live in this book is something you should read and then pass on to them so they can get to grips on your world I thoroughly enjoyed this book although I did find it a bit basic in parts the reason for the three thumbs review but I put that down to my being a fully paid up member of the geek club Enjoy this book as it sings the song of your peopleOriginally reviewed on

Or Doctor Who? Then grab this
