The Story of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum in Pixels - Book Review



Quote:
There was something the ZX Spectrum had over me that the Amstrad didn't, maybe it was the fact that I always wanted to play River Raid or hearing the many bleeps and blops coming from the little machine. Yet here we are, many many years ahead and I was to get a very special book in the post, a book from Chris Wilkins called 'The Story of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum in pixels'.

Oh it is, I can certainly see why Chris had a successful Kickstarter for the second volume. It also put Retrogamer's Amiga *BOOK* to shame
