  • A very nice story dangerous, though I am currently using a PC, but I am now seriously contemplating switching to a Mac D


  • I m really not that interested in the differences and or similarities between a Mac and a PC, but Fletcher DeLancey is a superb writer The story is short, but adequate It makes for a pleasant afternoon read 3.5


  • Short, sweet read Those who don t interact with computers on a daily basis probably won t fully appreciate some of the book Having grown up a PC user in a Apple household I ve heard all of the reasons in the book until my ears bleed Some of the information is incorrect and or outdated though But, now I m getting sidetracked The interactions between the two ladies was pretty good, but something was just missing for me and couldn t get into them that much, which is why I gave it 3 stars.


  • I was somewhat reluctant to read this book for several reasons The largest was the whole Mac vs PC thing that s the literal title of the book I didn t really want to read either a debate about the two nor, if there wasn t a debate, a book strenuously advancing the notion that Mac s are the best etc etc Not so much because I have a position in the debate, but because I, frankly, don t care A computer is a computer, some are better than others, some aren t Some are expensive paperweights Another [...]


  • This was an entertaining read for a lazy Sunday afternoon.As a computer science student myself, I was super excited to read something with that theme I just wish it hadn t been so damn focused on how one brand of operational system is better than the other At multiple parts I felt like I was reading some sort of Apple advertisement It was a lot of tech talk mixed with lesbian romance and for the life of me I couldn t figure out why all the endless gushing about Mac being superior was supposed to [...]


  • Mac vs PC is a novella about the trails and tribulations of owning computers, with some romance thrown in there for good measure Anna is a University IT troubleshooter a thankless job if ever there was one and Elizabeth is the new university staff member When they meet at a coffee shop they each find in the other quiet competence and an easy friendship leavened with no small part of attraction, at least on Anna s part Alas, however, Anna manages to screw this up royally The trick will be if she [...]


  • A great read for an afternoon s read In typical Fletcher DeLancey style there are terrific characters.You will probably pick up a few computer tips whether you are a PC or Mac user, and maybe a little plant biology too.



  • I d probably give this two stars except I couldn t put it down I couldn t have cared less about the operating system talk and would have liked to see of the romance development So much telling, not a ton of showing But, like I said, I couldn t put it down, so something was clearly working for me I ll have to check out the author s sci fi stuff and see if I like that better.


  • A light and fluffy book just what I needed Easily read in just a few hours As much as this book is very pro Mac or rather Mac Pro pun intended , I think I ll stick with my convoluted PC


  • I really liked this book, being a Mac user myself and a PC tech support at a University, I was smiling all the way through this book.Great feel good read Wonderful story of how the mind works well as the heart.


  • I read it online a couple of years ago It has been a pleasure to reread it again, this time the published version All I have to say is that I own a Mac.


  • Worth every penny I ll probably read it again The characters just grow on you The third person perspective really enrich the storytelling allowing the reader to get a better feel of the environment Mac Vs PC is quite short in terms of pages but would of been useless Fletcher wrote my favourite kind of story, the slice of life type, just a snippet of Anna existence and her personal growth.Anna life isn t perfect, her life isn t mess up either She is simply like you and me And that That s what I [...]


  • Diese und weitere Rezensionen findet ihr auf meinem Blog Anima Libri BuchseeleRezensionsexemplar, zur Verf gung gestellt vom Verlag im Austausch f r eine ehrliche Rezension Also eigentlich hat Flechter DeLanceys Kurzroman mit Mac vs PC ja den falschen Titel Es ist mehr 1.000 Gr nde warum Mac berlegen ist und liest sich ber weite Strecken wirklich wie ein einziges Apple Infomercial, Product Placement vom feinsten In meinen Augen jedenfalls war das nicht nur unn tig sondern auch relativ nervig und [...]


  • Such a nice quick read As a fervent Apple addict I was delighted that the writer was as well Cute romance, lovely characters nothing bad to say about this except maybe that it s a bit too short


  • Short, sweet, funny and so so good Reading this book is an awesome way to spend the afternoon or evening, laughing and smiling your way thru a cute and funny romance that blooms from conversations about a certain computer system s merits, among other things There is some technical discussion about computers but it s all easily understood by the layman rather than reading like a foreign language only understood by IT nerds and geeks There is plenty of comedy including lots of on point commentary [...]


  • It is one of those books that are fun and quick to read There was a lot of Apple advertisement in this book and less a debate between Mac vs PC Most of the big problems Anna had to solve were kind of ridiculous like explaining for a whole page how the undo button works There was much of an interaction between the main characters and computer talk, which took away a little bit from the story Both main characters were likable I just wish that there would have been interaction between them Andrea [...]


  • Ylva Publishing provided me with a copy for review.Sweet story from Ms DeLancey that fills the need for a lazy read Unfortunately, I m still a PC user as I still don t get the Mac craze 3.5 stars



  • A NovellaAnna Petrowski is a computer technician at the university Everyone seems to think her help and advice should be given freely at any time Even on her precious downtime at weekends.Anna has her strict Saturday routine with a visit to the Bean Grinder Coffee Bar It s the same every Saturday, a scone, caramel mocha and peace and quiet When Anna meets Elizabeth Markel in the Bean Grinder on her Saturday visit, she learns that Elizabeth is new in town and is working at the university Although [...]


  • What an enjoyable little read Alright, so I could have done with a little less technobabble but hey, the title suggests that both Mac and PC are playing a significant part in the book It wasn t too geeky for me to follow and I will readily admit that my anti Apple armour is showing first signs of thawing, and this story wasn t helping in keeping it up Were it not for the ginormous Apple price tags and the fact that my PC is still relatively new but I digress.Yeah, so I liked the story about the [...]


  • Anna Petrowski is senior IT Tech at Oregon State Her favorite luxury on the weekends is a sinful caramel mocha and a chocolate cherry scone at the Bean Grinder while she dreams of faraway places When an attractive woman who is hogging her favorite table starts swearing at her laptop Anna s first instinct is to duck Elizabeth Markel is clearly tempted to ask for help, but manages to restrain herself and so begins a new friendship and attraction for both women.But Anna is stuck on her own past, wi [...]


  • It reads like an Apple ad and a condescending one at that I certainly hope Fletcher was paid for her less than unbiased product placement The romance isn t enough to overcome the blatant Windows bashing, just for the record I use both Apple and Windows products, and while I freely admit Windows can be frustrating I found myself rolling my eyes every time Anna endorsed how wonderful her Apple products were.There are spoilers here for the story itself view spoiler The ending falls flat, as I found [...]


  • OK I m a Mac fan I can admit that And I work in a collegiate setting, so I can relate to that And I love women, so that too is good This is a cute, quick read great characters quick plot I liked it a lot My only issue is that, at times it came off as an Apple products ad Which sort of left me rolling my eyes But the romance was nice and believable, and I ve had friends that are similar to the PC gal in this book I m just afraid that PC lovers will not see the nice romance here and feel left ou [...]


  • A well paced journey throughout As usual, Fletcher weaves a compelling tale Characters and plot are woven together to form a tapestry into which the reader is soon drawn Back stories are skilfully dropped in and develop the characters Mac Versus PC is sweet tale of love and the mind games we often play with ourselves as we fall in love with all the hopes and fears that journey holds One reviewer asks about the reference to the Toaster In Lesbian terms, a toaster or a toaster oven is granted to a [...]


  • Now I have to rethink my computer choicesGrrr Anna and Elizabeth are charming and easy to love The events in this book are plausible, something I enjoy a great deal.The story line was both entertaining and intelligent I liked the romance part of the book It is very unusual for a book to be so chaste these days It did not take away from the story at all, in fact in my opinion it made the tale all the sweeter I really didn t expect the story to revolve so much around computers but Ms DeLancey made [...]


  • Too much Mac is better crap The title is a little off too should just simply be Mac is better than PC , as PC just gets trashed, no good points for PC are pointed out, no flaws for Mac are pointed out Lost a star for all of that since it was unavoidable to deal with Understandable that this isn t the point of the book, but it s still there and hard to skip.If you can manage to ignore the computer jargon that is repeatedly crammed down your throat, this book is a good read Don t let the techie ta [...]


  • Fletcher DeLancy delivers a perfect mix of romance, charm and fun in this novella The story, told from Anna s perspective, is an adorable meet cute, focused on, of course, the Mac vs PC debate Very character driven, the story follows Anna s transition from snob to lovable computer geek in what I thought to be a sweet and romantic story I absolutely loved the ending as the whole story was tied together perfectly For anyone looking for a traditional romance without the hot and heavy sex scenes, ra [...]


  • This book was a great, fun read for a lazy afternoon The plot was great and I loved the intertwined story of the techno babble As someone allergic to using a Mac, this story even managed to make me not so scared of trying to use one Kind of The love story is sweet, and while a little maddening just talk to each other it kept me turning the pages and the well written insights in to the character s thoughts made everything understandable Great book Adore the writing.


  • Adorable What an adorable book I really loved the story line and having had experience with both Windows and Apple OS systems I found the background story very endearing The two characters were very sweet and believable the author did a very good job with the storyline Well done
