This is a great story of science fiction for those who love the 80s. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has enjoyed any sci-fi movies from that time.
it is based off in rhe future where people are in virtual reality suit in order to escape the present. they escape to a universe made by an 80s geek.
Narrator is great. Story us great. what the character does annoys me sometimes though. He acts super creepy sometimes in which I cannot connect with. Its cringeworthy.
Also, I felt myself fast forwarding some parts because the person talks too much about their feelings rather than being in the moment. That's the reason why I deducted one star.
"Ready Player One" is my favorite book of all time. I read it once a year. I always laugh and cry in the same spots. And always, I get something new from it. It's basically Willy Wonka meets video games and it's all perfectly smothered in all that was the 80s. Give it listen. It's totally worth it.
I will give any narration by Wil Wheaton a chance. The story is great too! Together, this is probably the best audio book you'll ever pick up.
I haven't read "Armada" yet, but it's on my shelf. The closest books would be "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and something about Howard Hughes that takes place in the future.
If I could bend space and time to be able to listen to this in one sitting without derailing the rest of my life, I'd do it every day.
You will NOT be disappointed in this audio book!
As someone who grew up with the pop culture greatness that this book touched on, I definitely enjoyed this amazing story with glee and a sense of adventure I haven't felt since I was a kid.
I only played games when the ability to play first came out. I played Zelda and Tetras and a few others. I was a young mom then and mostly my son played games. This book would b a must read for any real gamer. It made me want to play the games he talked about and watch the old movies! Some parts had too much explanation for me but I still really enjoyed the book
