Book Review - "Lost At The Con" by Bryan Young
But it wasn't very good. The narrator / main character, a reporter named Cobb, is a drunk asshole. His articles reminded me of a recent Men's Fitness article that made fun of chubby cosplayers who were at NYCC this year. Both made me feel angry because it was an attack by bullies. And Cobb's articles attacked different parts of the con, which just gave me a bad taste in my mouth.
Even though Cobb redeemed himself a bit near the end, it still wasn't a very good book. It was a little fun to read about places around Dragon*Con that I know so well. Beyond that, I couldn't recommend it to anyone, especially people who love attending Dragon*Con every year.
