Wil Wheaton delivers a great story narration. This books gets going from the get go and doesn't let up. Fantastic dystopian SCI-if thriller with an 80s salute. Can't wait to see the big screen version.
not too far from reality, describes a world that is probably closer than we know. wil wheaton is excellent.
I could listen to this audiobook a thousand times over and love it every time. The characters are so memorable and the virtual world the author creates for them inside the Oasis really gets your imagination going. This is an absolute MUST read for anyone who loves roleplay or multiplayer style computer gaming.
I gave this audiobook recording a 4/5 because although the narrator was easy to understand and was very expressive, I would have loved to hear something like environmental sound effects along with the narration to get an even higher level of immersion in the story. The story itself is an absolute 5/5.
Have fun and 2017 on!
Easy to follow while driving (repeats of important information when it becomes relevant). fun story. not my favorite reader but it fits the story.
Great till the end when the author attempts to stuff a ton of social justice stuff into a few paragraphs which doesn't add anything to the story... and a strangely confident nerd who suffers from a complete lack of confidence? I was with it till the end.
Wow! My friend recommended this book to me. We grew up playing dungeons and dragons, reading comic books and listening to 80's rock. This is the culmination of everyone I grew up with and loved put in book form. Will Wheaton is awesome and very fitting. Listen to this!!!

If you feel a pang for the 80's and want to follow along an excellently narrated adventure then this is the book for you!
This was a very nostalgic book for me. I was a kid in the 80's and loved every minute of it!! Brought back so many memories. If your a product of the 80's, pick this up. It is worth a listen for nothing else than all the references to arguably the best decade in history.
With that being said this book has everything, Adventure, Comedy, Drama, and even a love story.
I bought this on a whim since it had such high ratings. Truth be told, i was so excited to get started, but ended up being a little underwhelmed in the beginning. In fact I almost stopped. Thank goodness I didn't. I ended up devouring it. I normally listen to books to fill voids of boredom, ie when I shower, when driving, mowing the lawn or other chores. I found myself wanting to listen to this every waking moment. In fact, when I got within 20 min of the end, I felt sad cause I didn't want it to end.
Will does a great job as narrator and Cline does justice to the 80's. Buy this book already...you will not regret it!!
