Wil Wheaton is great, but there were sections of dialogue where I had to listen twice to determine who was speaking. A little more vocal variety when reading would be good. The story was intriguing.
Im not a gamer but it drew me in and held me there. Thoughtful, nostalgic, and innovative. I couldn't put it down. I retreated into the book the way the main character finds comfort in the OASIS.
Wheaton's narration was clutch. Famous voices can be distracting but i stopped thinking about his BIg Bang Theory persona instantly as he drew me into the story.
Highest recommendation... May be the first audio book I listen to again.
I don't know what the signature does.
I got capital O Obsessed with this audiobook. I started listening to it 3 months ago, I fell asleep 5 mins in and didn't come back until last week. I was on a 3 hour flight, and Ready Player One made it go by in what seemed like 45 minutes.
I don't know why it didn't interest me the first time... I think actually it was because I was in the middle of the launch of The Division or some other Xbox One game, so all of my free time was already taken up with that.
The amazing thing about this book is that it's just as immersive as the virtual Oasis that the book is about. I finished the whole 15 hours over 4 days.
The story was amazing, the performance was great and I am sad now that it's over!
What an awesome book.
This was incredibly hard to listen to as a person who enjoys video games. It is also unfortunate that they picked Wil Wheaton to narrate, as his characters are typical "hipster" characters and that might have made my opinion of the book worse.
The character came off as petulant, immature, and incredibly unlikable. Listening to him whinge about the girl not liking him and rave about how good he was at games was ... well. Not enjoyable.
I returned the book.
This is easily one of the best books I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. Performed brilliantly by Wil Wheaton; this is a nostalgic trip through a world all geeks, nerds, and general science fiction lovers, know too well. Highly recommend this, 10/10, brilliant.
After much recommendation from friends and curious about the upcoming Steven Speilberg directed film adaptation, I finally got to listen to Wil Wheaton read Ready Player One. This is my first audiobook and it won't be my last. This is a delightful production. Not only is Ernest Cline a great author, but Wheaton made me feel incredibly immersed in this fantastic story that involved tons of great pop culture references, awesome characters, and thrilling chapters dealing with video games, movie reenactments, love, and most of all, obsession. If you consider yourself to be a nerd, and if you love Rush, you will be disappointed by giving this a listen.
