Off to Be the Wizard by Scott Meyer

Martin Banks is just a normal guy who has made an abnormal discovery: he can manipulate reality, thanks to reality being nothing more than a computer program. With every use of this ability, though, Martin finds his little “tweaks” have not escaped notice. Rather than face prosecution, he decides instead to travel back in time to the Middle Ages and pose as a wizard.

What could possibly go wrong?

An American hacker in King Arthur’s court, Martin must now train to become a full-fledged master of his powers, discover the truth behind the ancient wizard Merlin… and not, y’know, die or anything.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved this book, it was awesome! I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a fun, adventurous, light-hearted, entertaining read. It’s a fantasy tale with an underlying theme of computer science so anyone who can relate to those skills as a profession or has insight into computer literacy from a generational standpoint will defintely appreciate its premise.

The author, Scott Meyer, wrote the book in a straightforward, easily guided, yet discoverable manner. The protagonist struggled with internal and external influences over his feelings, primarily those of doubt, accomplishment, and ambiguous sentiments that made for a relatable theme. There were a few moments that read a little slower and parts of detail-ridden dialogue that could have probably been better summed up, but they did make for an interesting addition to the narrative nonetheless. I loved the plot with running parallels of modern and ancient age, wizardry legend, and time travel. They were all connected by hacking activity with creative interjections of generational and technological humor which made for a book that I couldn’t put down and ended up reading it in one sitting.
