Surprisingly engaging, totally immersive, and absolutely brilliantly performed.
Wade, as the primary protagonist, really had to be my favorite character. You don't get to know some of the others as well, so he's the one you connect with the most since you actually have details about his private life outside of the Game.
This is the first time I've listened to a book read by Wheaton, but I desperately hope he does more. I'm a fan of his from way back in the TNG days, but beyond that this was probably the best performance of a book I have ever listened to, including The Martian, which received a ton of awards for best performance.
The Big Red Button.
I was somewhat hesitant to listen to this book, as I was afraid it was going to be mostly pandering to the overly connected younger generation, sort of like a techie Hunger Games or something. I'm actually slightly too young to get some of the 80's references, having been born in 81. However, there was much more depth to the book than I expected, and the dystopian world that Cline created was both believable and engrossing. Wheaton's performance was absolutely brilliant (the best ever, in my mind, and I own many, many audiobooks).
Truly an amazing story. Wil Wheaton does a perfect job with his narration of this novel.
For any nerd out there I would highly recommend listening to this production of Ready Player One.
I was a kid in the 80s and 90s and this book is so full of wonderful nostalgia and geek lore. to add to that, a reading by Wil, just made it more loveable. thank you for this book! so fun I will probably listen to it again.
