Review: Geek Love by Mechele Armstrong

Geek Love” reads like a nerdy pop culture encyclopedia.

It is the story about Joel and Sam who are online gaming buddies. Now, after becoming best friends online, Sam is ready to meet Joel in person and reveal that she is a woman. It is an interesting story and a situation that is possible with advent and popularity on gaming anonymously online. Plus, it would appeal to poorly represented demographic—the geek.

Unfortunately, Mechele Armstrong forces the geeky factor into the story without any subtlety. The mention of anything that has to do with geek culture is followed by a sentence—or three—explaining it. Thus destroying any momentum the prose tries to build.
