Written In The 70s. I Would Never Have Guessed!
I had no idea this book was from the 70s, until it was over and the copyright year was stated. I had wondered why there was no mention of cell phones or the internet. But there were several references to "war gaming" which I assumed was like Call Of Duty on the Xbox with internet friends. Hmm, now I'm curious what exactly the kids were doing during their gaming. Oh, and I thought it was SUPER weird that the parents were ok with their 16 year old son chugging a beer, openly in front of them, in their kitchen. I guess that was acceptable back then???
This was a funny and entertaining book. Everyone catches the "stupid sickness" and they become stupid. But where they're stupid, a lot don't realize they're becoming stupid. I had thought too much emphasis was given on the importance of IQs and knowing what your IQ was. Now that I see this was written in the 70s, I guess knowing your IQ back then was some kind of fad.
I LOVED the narrator! Without him, this book wouldn't have been half as good. He's got the voice of your awkward humorous uncle who knows a little about everything. Great voice!!! His female voices were off a little, but easily overlooked.

Listening to the book makes you feel like your own IQ is lowering, Brilliant book.
Charles Henderson Norman has the very BEST VOICE.
IQ 83, now has a star attached, and may soon be a movie.
