This is a fascinating commentary and update of the author's first memoir, "Just a Geek." The entire content of the first book is included and commentary appears at the bottom of the pages in footnote format. Newly gained perspective and honesty regarding things left unexpressed in the earlier book adds a level of memoir that shows the author's growing maturity while coming to terms with his mental illness and his difficulties growing up with abusive parents. ANd there's a lot about Star Trek, too.… (més)

Wil Weaton provides a strong glimpse into what, to me, is the awful world of professional acting: the insecurity, the indignity, the frustration. He also walks us through the complicated relationship he has had with Star Trek and his Wesley Crusher character. He also connects with his readers by revealing that he is exactly like them. He is a geek who loves gaming, Internet culture, SF novels, etc. Just one thing, Wil: find an adjective other than "cool" to describe things you like. It was definitely the most overused word in the whole of this book.… (més)

I admit it. I actually liked Wesley on TNG. Probably because I would have killed to be on the real Enterprise (if it were a real space ship) or an actor on the show. And, don't worry Wil, I wasn't looking for a rehash of Star Trek. I knew what the book was about and was interested in how Wil's thoughts on TNG and acting evolved. I enjoyed the story and the way thoughts from the blog were interwoven. It wasn't as much a chronological story as a chronology of thought and emotion. Very enjoyable.

Back in 2004, Wil Wheaton published an edited collection of some of his blog posts with additional linking material to turn it into a coherent narrative under the title Just a Geek. Last year, Just a Geek was republished with extra blog posts, but more importantly, footnotes. These footnotes clarify some stuff from the original book, apologize for bad writing or insensitive jokes, and expand on stuff he didn't say back then, about how his father emotionally abused him and how his mother deprived him of a childhood in her drive to turn him into a child star. I found it a bit of a mixed bag: the "comedy" footnotes were generally not funny and soon got wearying, the ones apologizing for misogynist early 2000s Internet discourse were necessary at first but not at the one hundredth iteration.

I found myself wishing that the material about his parents had been worked in as extra essays, not footnotes; what's frustrating is that the most important one (about the abuse he and his sister went through on the set of the film The Curse) doesn't appear until very late in the book, but it provides important context for a lot of what you've been reading. Aside from this, the best material in the book was generally the original contents of Just a Geek: I liked the discussion of his cameo in Star Trek Nemesis a lot, as well as his interactions with his TNG castmates, which were very sweet. There's a good "found family" vibe to it.
