Publisher's Summary

For fans of Scott Pilgrim or The Guild comes a story of Xbox, Denny's, and awkward beginnings.

Not too long ago, in a town that, depending on your current location, is either not super far or actually quite close.

It is a time of chaotic hormones.

Two nerdy gents home for winter break have discovered a female gamer at a midnight release.

During the break, the gamer trio manages to reveal the game's secret boss, a hidden enemy with enough power to destroy anything in its path.

Pursued by other gamers who want to be the first to beat this boss, George and Katie race to level up, and, in so doing, restore decency and sexual activity to their personal galaxy....

    "Hilarious!"
    Where does Backward Compatible rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a funny one. As a fairly new listener to audiobooks (I traditionally like printed word), I was able to be taken into the minds of the characters brought to life by the narrators!


    What does Angel Clark and Robert Peters bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The dorkiness of the characters are brought to life and make it hilarious!

    I wasn't sure that I was going to like the book, but I loved it! Very geeky, and incredibly amusing! I felt more 'normal' after listening to it. The audio was awesome, very highly recommended!
