@Cap so here it is. If you need it sent to you another way let me know but hopefully this will suffice. I know this is a lot but I wanted to give you all the freedom to cherry pick the things that make for the most interesting commentary.

Just wanted to say how much I love this episode. I discovered @megaran and @k-murdock’s music thanks to Nerdy Show and listened to them on Spotify for the longest time. Recently cancelled my Spotify subscription and this episode rekindled my interest. Just went over to Bandcamp and went on a shopping spree. @megaran has a story that makes me wish I had a passion that strong. Thanks again for this great new show I can’t wait to see what else comes from this.
@cap ah geez no pressure then or anything.
Everyone else: thanks for your inputs, I’m not ignoring you all work’s just been hectic. I’m considering something combining the What lies beneath NY and urban exploring if possible I think that could be really cool I’d just like to flesh out the concept a bit before officially requesting it.
I thought the book was good but I didn’t love it the way I did American Gods and Anansi Boys. I thought the storyline was good but it didn’t grab me like his other stories. It was such a short book but to be honest I still had to almost force myself to finish it. It just got really convoluted and bizarre. I wasn’t super into it but it was very well written and I’m sure others will enjoy it.
Could the trailer feel anymore generic? I mean seriously sub in any badass character to that scene and it doesn’t change a thing.

Finally got around to ordering this book (using the Nerdy Show Amazon link of course) and reading it the other day. I will preface this with the acknowledgement that this is absolutely not written for someone like me, being a 25 year old man, so please understand that I’m making these statements with the full understanding that this wasn’t written for me.
First off holy crap this was a quick read, we’re talking single sitting read. Not necessarily a bad thing I just felt a bit cheated. I feel that the book absolutely walks the line between young teen novel and college age reader in the sense that it touches on some very adult topics e.g. sex, abuse, drugs and that’s not to even mention the overall theme of genetic engineering and playing God. I feel like if I was in the target market that I would have enjoyed the book a lot more. That being said I felt like this book could have easily been 100+ more pages to really flesh out the story. The end of the book seemed incredibly rushed with the introduction of Adam in the flesh and the exposing of the true story of Solo’s parents. While I believe that the concept is great I really wish this book were written with an adult audience in mind. Seeing Adam’s existence and maturation in the physical world would have been very interesting. Being the sci-fi nerd that I am I wish they would have gone into more detail on the actual process of engineering the bodies, implanting memories, artificial aging, and other aspects of the project. The end of the story almost got a bit Twilighty with the description of Adam in his corporeal form, describing him as this Adonis who attracted the attention of everyone in his vicinity because of his supernatural good looks, yes I’m hating a bit but I’m sure this will appeal to young female readers. I would love to hear the full story of the characters rather than the tidy ending where are the lose ends are dealt with and everyone is happy. All in all, I enjoyed the book and I’m sure the target audience will love it as much as I did the Animorphs books of my day. Regardless, this is what a book club is about, to introduce you to material you probably wouldn’t have looked into on your own and I appreciate that. I look forward to the episode and hearing Mr. Grant’s input.
