Reviews - What do customers think about My Life as a Computer Cockroach (The Incredible Worlds of Wally McDoogle #17) ?

Good Christian Message, a bit out-dated?  Sep 17, 2001
As a little shaver, I never especially enjoyed this type of light, comical book. Yes, I was a bit of a nerd, even back then. So, now that I'm a 24-year-old nerd, why did I decide to read a book intended for 4th graders? 1) because I teach fifth and sixth grade now and the reading level of the book wasn't that far off. Why not see what the kids are reading these days? 2) because it was sitting on the desk of the former 4th grade teacher's classroom where I eat my lunch and I was bored. So, why not read it.

The book really wasn't that bad considering it was written for someone 14 years younger than me. The hero of this line of books, Wally McDoogle, is a klutz and, quite often, he trips or stumbles, etc. setting off a chain of events culminating in some great disaster. Bill Myers is very talented when it comes to explaining in a believable way (to the ten-year-old mind) how sneezing can humorously result in a destroyed room and a computer that has a unique glich--whatever is typed into the computer becomes reality.

Myers also inserts a moral, Christian message in this and every other of the Wally McDoogle books, making it a fun read and assisting in character education. It's nice to see the redeeming, Christian social value of the book. Myers also develops some humorous moments. My personal favorite, although I'm not sure if it's intended, is when Myers shamelessly plugged another book in the Wally McDoogle series into the narrative of this book.

While the idea of a compuer that creates reality is an excellent idea, I'm not sure that 4th graders of 2001 would appreciate the importance of the computer bug being a Millennium Bug. I really doubt that he or she would even understand the now-historical term. Aside from that, the book is pretty entertaining. If I were to buy one of Myers's books of the Wally McDoogle line for a youngster, I'm not sure I would pick the Millennium Bug one, but would look to others. All-in-all, I would probably recommend to a kid, a different book, but would not be disappointed at all if the kid chose to read this book.

My Life As a Mixed-Up Millennium Bug, by Bill Myers  Jun 17, 2000
In this hilarious book, salt water gets spilled on 'Ol Betsy (Wally's computer). Then everything he writes about on his computer really happens! Choas insues and Wally learns that he should never cheat because it could cause serious problems!
