Goths, gamers, and grrrls

Shelves: gc-library , non-fiction , reference As a sometimes goth, a major gamer, and a grrrl, the title of this book intrigued me, so I decided to read it. Ultimately, the book has disappointed me immensely. For instance, the author lists Nintendo and Wii as being independent of each other. The book is simplistically written, as though for laymen, and dumbs down every topic it covers making it even too simple for the average layman. Also, a lot of the sources that are researched seem extremely dated, even though this book was published within the last five years. The author references MySpace as a popular social platform, and anyone with a regular internet connection knows that MySpace is long dead.
