I enjoyed everything about this audio book. Wil Wheaton was the perfect person to bring Ernest Cline's book to life. Best moment from the book was hearing Wil Wheaton and Cory Doctorow mentioned in the same sentence, the subject of which is politics! Double bonus was having Wil Wheaton saying it. I didn't want this book to end.
this book made me react in many ways I have never reacted to a book before. I loved every second of it and could not stop listening. Wil Wheaton does a great job with each characters voice!
Great story combined with a setting that lets the imagination run wild and this author takes full advantage. I can't wait to see the movie !
I really enjoyed the book. Great argument and nice developed characters.. However, narrator was painfully slow so I decided to listen to it at x1,25 speed. At times it sounded kind of funny but it did the job. Recommended anyhow. Narrator did do a well interpretation of charactet voices, etc.
I kept looking at Ready Player One over many months and not choosing it because gaming/futuristic books are so not my genre. Ready Player One just proved to me that any subject matter can make a great book if it is well written and told with a compelling story line. I loved this book!
Loved this book! I could listen to enough. I usually listen to a book 50-60 minutes a day, but with this book I could not get enough. So many references that had me thinking how cool it was that that detail was put in the book. I can't think of one chapter that did not have a memorable moment or two. The movie adaptation is going to have a very tough time being this good, and so will a sequel that I hear is in the works. Character were great, setting was inspirational, and the story was amazing. Also of significant note is Wil Wheaton's performance; he is amazing at reading books and really getting the listener the story. I can't wait to ready this book again!
Bad for several main reasons
1. Tries to be political at the beginning in a lazy and boring way
2. Felt like it was written by a 12-year-old
3. Spends way to much time describing physical attributes a virtual world.
Once I got comfortable with Wil's voice, I could then enjoy the book. It was hard to separate Wil from the story, because he has a distinctive voice that made me think of Wil vs. the character of Wade.
The story, while ultimately predictable, was well written and very enjoyable; especially for some who spent their teenage years in the '80s.
Loved this story. Very well performed and overall awesome. One of the best actors I've heard on audible. I didn't get most of the references, as the 80s were before my time, but they were well explained, and I still enjoyed it. I recommend it.
