Movie Buff Extrordinare
The book is incredible. The first third feels a little slow and too steeped in its own nostalgia. After that the book really starts to pick up steam as the steaks rise for all the characters. I do recommend the book, especially for those who have a love of three 80s.
Wil Wheaton did an amazing job narrating this addicting and fascinating story! I found myself sitting in my car for long periods of time dying to know what would happen next. highly recommend.
I binged the whole thing in two days. Loved all the characters and the world of the Oasis. The heroes are noble and likable and the villains truly evil. I will be revisiting this many times in the future!
I'm not a gamer... my son, who is, turned me on to this book, and I'm glad he did! I thought it was great. So you don't have to play video games to really enjoy it, but I can imagine if you do, it would be even better. And all the references to pop-culture make it almost like textbook on 20th century icons. So much fun. Can't wait for the movie!
The main character gets through everything drama-free and unscathed. It needed more editing. I liked the idea but the execution of the plot fell short. It's better if you like the 80s, but doesn't quite live up to its potential. If done right, it would make a better movie
This is a well-crafted book that is fast-paced, fun, and nostalgic at the same time. Wil does a great job narrating it as well. I really wish there was another book or five like this that I could read.
Great story, characters you will have no choice but to like. very show to start.... but hang in there is with it. Wil Wheaton did his best but the dynamics of his voice didn't lend well to this story. He didn't ruin it either so kudos.
Having grown up with pong/Commodore/Atari...etc. this book was a walk down memory lane. I even had flash backs to my grid paper dungeon master days! Wil Wheaton is a great narrator and you really feel the characters through his voice. Overall awesome book I passed initially but the description of this work of art doesn't do it justice. Purchase with confidence if you lived through the 80's...you will smile many times while listening to 'Ready Player One'- or you just have no soul 😜
