    A fun look back at the 80s in the UK. If you remember fondly playing video games with your mates (or friends) in the 80s, you'll enjoy this lighthearted story.

    When is 1985 coming out? Being the same age at the time this is a great meander through my micro memories and pop culture of the time.

    I received this audio book in exchange for an honest review. The Micro Kids is a snapshot of the microcomputer boom of the 1980s. It's obvious that Gary Plowman has a great appreciation for this era. The story is full of references to various microcomputers, gaming fairs, computer stores and video games. Some of the references can get tedious at times, with Billy examining the trivial intricacies of many of his favorite games. Nonetheless, his love for micro computers is clearly felt throughout t I received this audio book in exchange for an honest review. The Micro Kids is a snapshot of the microcomputer boom of the 1980s. It's obvious that Gary Plowman has a great appreciation for this era. The story is full of references to various microcomputers, gaming fairs, computer stores and video games. Some of the references can get tedious at times, with Billy examining the trivial intricacies of many of his favorite games. Nonetheless, his love for micro computers is clearly felt throughout the narrative. Jas Walker does a fine job narrating this story, although his work leaves something to be desired. Some words are frequently repeated throughout the book, and Walker's narration can become a bit grating at times. Even so, he managed to keep the work engaging throughout. Overall, I enjoyed this book. It took some time to hit its stride, but once it did, it made for an enjoyable tale. I didn't grow up in this era. I imagine those who did would find Plowman's work to be even more interesting.
