    1. Basically, this book is about a boy, Harry, who gets a computer for his birthday, even though he always wanted a drum set. He was OK with the present, until it started doing strange things. It would make beeping noises that sounded like laughing or crying while Harry was in bed, and it would display messages on the screen with Harry's name in them. It would ask questions through writing as if it had a mind of its own. Then things just got weirder. It would ask where 'Imogene Cuniformly' was, who [...]

    4. I selected this book as part of a "free book giveaway" as a first grader, many years ago in the 80's. I think I chose it because of the cover (which was futuristic for that era). My mother laughed like crazy when she saw the title, but I never actually got around to reading it myself. The humor was lost on me as a seven-year-old.It's going on three decades since then. I found this copy in a box of old books from my childhood and decided that if I was ever going to read it, now would be the time. [...]

    5. I read this when I was still in primary school and I only remember parts of the story. From what I can recall, I didn't particularly love or hate it, and I still have a vivid recollection of an iced cake (that the brother of the main character sticks his fingers into) described in the beginning. I also remember the stark, monotone setting and, since I adore those kind of settings, I suppose enjoying this book was one of the first instances of my fascination with the bleak and the desolate.If you [...]

    6. Worst Book EVER!!! Lame Long and B-o-r-i-n-g suckish. If they tell you go to jail of read this book pick jail youll have more fun in jail than in those agonizing pages ofthe worst book. Only gets semi-exciting at the end. L-A-M-E

    7. The title suggests that the computer ate his mean brother because they hate him. This only happens at the almost-ending part where he tries to unplug it.
