    This is, literally, The Science-Fiction and Fantasy Quiz Book. You have a bunch of questions about every geeky thing you can think of. And nothing more. I kept expecting to find some kind of explanation, something besides that one page of answers with 4) a and 51) d. Just more.

    My bad.

    I had never read a quiz book and was expecting something else. Still, it is entertaining.

    4.5 StarsA perfect gift for any dedicated Sci-fi/fantasy fan! This quiz book includes books, movies, television shows, and games in different difficulty levels. Almost every cult classic has at least one question. The question types mix true or false, multiple choice, and open-ended questions. What can I say, it's fun. Geeky, but fun. This book would be great for trivia night. I suggest the print copy so you can flip back and forth easily from the quizzes to the answers.Net Galley Feedback

    The Science Fiction and Fantasy Quiz Book is what has been missing in my sci-fi library! It is every sci-fi nerds dream book. It stretches the mind to remember things from videos, movie series, movies, comics, cartoons, and books. It has easy, medium, and hard questions. There are multiple choice, matching, short answer, true or false, and others. It is so much fun to dig up those memories. I wanted to call my friends and ask them for help when I got stuck. It would be a perfect book for get togethers or parties. I enjoyed it alone but I sure wanted to share the fun. The answers are in the back for those who wanted to give up; quitters! I have lived and breathed sci-fi as long as I can remember, but this old lady got many of the easy and medium right. Lots of fun, a book for the fantasy and sci-fi fan in your life! I was given this book for a honest review and boy am I glad I got to review this one!!!
