Wil Wheaton takes this page turning book and makes it one that you can't stop listening to! The book itself is outstanding and captivating. I'm not the biggest 80's guy, but the references were still fun and entertaining. It should be on everyone's 'I've listened to it at least once list!' The ending is not overly jaw dropping, but that isn't the point.
It took me a year before I got the nerve to listen to this book. But I did and it was the most amazing journey ever. Wil Wheaton's voice was a familiar calm. The excitement kept me on edge!! Rooting for my favorite team to beat IOI SIXERS.
This book was basically custom built for anyone who spent a large portion of their lives playing mmorpg's. The very real sensation of overcoming challenges and creating lasting bonds within a virtual environment with individuals you have never seen is perfectly illustrated in Ready Player One. Bravo ... It also helps to be an 80's child who recognized almost every single reference.
A must read if your into, AWESOMENESS. I had to pill myself away from this book just to get my everyday routine done. Even tho it was a audio book it makes you sit and listen like a five year old listening to his favorite story. 10 out of 10
The final 1/3 of the book just falls into place too easily. There were a couple moments where suddenly things were resolved without much effort.
