This book was such a joy to read. I’m not a huge gamer, but I am a big Kirby fan and have played many of the Kirby games in the franchise. The author makes wonderful points about gaming, and specifically about Kirby’s Dream Land, that I hadn’t realized. There was a lot of learning about life, social interactions, gaming, and Kirby! There was some repetition in the book, but the repetition builds on itself and the themes in the chapter.
Something that I would have liked, moreso because it is personal preference, is if the chapters of the books had titles to let me know what the main topic was, especially given some of the repetition, though, the quotes at the beginning of each chapter does provide that context. I’m grateful to have been able to read about one of my favorite characters and get more insight about this game, but also about gaming and self development.
