"Short but sweet, a highly recommended addtition to anyone's bookshelf - Trekker, Trekkie, geek or otherwise - we can't wait for his next book!" - Paul Hudson, Linux Format, July - Linux Format Top Stuff Award -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: MP3 CD.
Wil Wheaton--blogger, geek, and Star Trek: The Next Generation's Wesley Crusher--gives us five short-but-true tales of life in the so-called Space Age in Dancing Barefoot. With a true geek's unflinching honesty, Wil examines life, love, the web, and the absurdities of Hollywood in these compelling autobiographical narratives. Based on pieces first published in Wil's hugely popular blog, www .wilwheaton.net, the stories in Dancing Barefoot chronicle a teen TV star's journey to maturity and self-acceptance. Far from the usual celebrity tell-all, Dancing Barefoot is a vivid account of one man's version of that universal story, the search for self. If you've ever fallen in love, wondered what goes on behind the scenes at a Star Trek convention, or thought hard about the meaning of life, you'll find a kindred soul in the pages of Dancing Barefoot. In the process of uncovering his true geeky self, Wil Wheaton speaks to the inner geek in all of us. The stories: Houses in Motion - Memories fill the emptiness left within a childhood home, and saying goodbye brings them to life.Ready Or Not Here I Come - A game of hide-n-seek with the kids works as a time machine, taking Wil on a tour of the hiding and seeking of years gone by. Inferno - Two 15-year-olds pass in the night leaving behind pleasant memories and a perfumed Car Wars Deluxe Edition Box Set. We Close Our Eyes - A few beautiful moments spent dancing in the rain. The Saga of SpongeBob VegasPants - A story of love, hate, laughter and the acceptance of all things Trek. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: MP3 CD. Alle Produktbeschreibungen
Für mich wurde Wesley Crusher aus ST-TNG in diesem Buch zu einem normalen Menschen mit Bedürfnissen und Gefühlen. Meiner Meinung nach ein sympatischer kurzer Einblick in einen Charakter, den man zu kennen glaubte und es doch nicht tat.

Wil's writing is engaging (yes, I know, bad pun), witty, honest, and at times, bitterly poignant. Though it's hard to relate to the life of an actor and the ups and downs that go with it, Wil found a way to draw people in to his life and to explain those pains, pangs and associated temporary joys in such a way that I ended up spending most of my time nodding and muttering, "been there, Wil, I know that feeling".
I found myself sucked into the stories - weeping with him over Aunt Val, watching the kids play in the front yard and stepping into the Time Warp of youth, sitting at a booth in the surreal surroundings of Vegas and even more surreal moments known as a Star Trek Con. In a way, it became less a book and more a conversation with someone I grew up with, a mirror to look at my own life in a different perspective.
The stories aren't about anything *that* exciting, and you won't hear a lot of great "on set" gossip from the TNG days, but they are a peek into what it's like to be a Gen Xer - stuck between childhood and adult responsibility, watching our beloved relatives pass, our children grow up, worrying about bills and relationships, looking back at what we've accomplished (or not accomplished), the self-doubt, and finally, that settling in to realize that we actually *like* the person that's looking back from the mirror.
Granted, a lot, if not all of the material can be found on the website if you look hard enough, but it's cool to have it in a bound form. I was willing to pay the $$ just for that. (The drawings were fun too!)
It's a fast read. I think I sat down and finished DB in about an hour. I couldn't put it down.
Say what you will about Wes Crusher, but this Wil Wheaton kid can WRITE!
I bought this because I thought it might be some good, frivolous reading (after all, I check in on his blog a few times a month). I got so much more out of this. He's really, really found his stride in writing, and now I want to go to his blogsite and read all the archives.
My favorite story is not about Star Trek, but the first story in the collection titled "Houses in Motion". He was able to write a very touching story about an ordinary task of picking up an old piece of furniture. If the walls of that old house could talk, Wil could tell you what they were saying.
If you need a light read and need something to make you smile, pick up this paperback and share it with your friends.
