Wil Wheaton is masterful at telling this story. I haven't listened to any of his other works but now, I'm going to find and buy them. thanks Wil!
Hooked from the first chapter. People can say what they want about the immaturity of the writing and the 80's nostalgia. It is written from the pov of a socially awkward gamer and how he views his world. Brilliant and heartwarming. Would read again.
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.
