THE MICRO KIDS An 80s Adventure with ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 and More

by | Read by Jas Walker

Fiction • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Jas Walker deftly re-creates small-town Britain in the 1980s with this homage to microcomputers and programmers. Young Billy Twist and his buddies, who are mad about computer games, persuade a willing dad to let them use his "man castle" as a place to meet and compete. Listeners will join in the fun as they plan their game purchases and enjoy lots of junk food. Glimpses of family life add further warmth. Walker excels with youthful conversation and reasoning, and snatches of computer history add depth. Listening pleasure is enhanced by the witty conversations and problem-solving strategies of these computer-savvy youth. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2019]
