For someone born within a few months of the maker of the Oasis world setting of the story - going through both the futuristic and 1980s story lines was a blast. Found myself trying as hard to solve the main mystery of the book as the main characters themselves did.
The ending when you learn the identities of the characters and they interact in the real world

Enjoyable listen. Plenty of plot and pop culture history. Would make a fun summer read.
I highly recommend this audio book. It is geek-tastic with all of its Pop-culture references. Will Wheaton is great too. I'll be reading any of his other narrated books soon.
Awesome story. Loved all the throw backs to the 80s. Clever use of imagination to think how our world could be sooner rather than later. Thanks for the ride.
This is a lot different from my normal reading material, but my husband recommended it and we both loved it. Since we are both in our late 30's we often think back on childhood memories of the 80's and this book brought back a lot of the nerdy things we loved in a unique and fun way. If you're a gamer between the age 35-45, I'd say you'd love this book. If you're a child of a gamer from that age group and your parents made you watch all their childhood favorite movies and TV shows, you'd probably enjoy this book as well. Will Wheaton does a great job narrating, so Ready Player One is definitely worth the credit.
