This was a suggestion from a friend and it was a great one! I'm not into video games but that didn't matter, it was a fantastic story and loved the 80's references, all 2000 of them.
fun story. good narration. reads a little more like a script than a novel. should make for an awesome movie pending the right actors and director chosen. it was a refreshing take on the distopian-type stories popular right now
Wil Wheaton brings every character to life with feeling and personality. So much so that as the story rolls on, I personally felt so invested that my heart would begin pounding in anticipation.
As to the story itself, Ernest Cline is quite obviously a nerd's nerd. The references are all spot on, and even the emotional doubt and fear of being social will familiar to anyone who was a young gamer.
I look forward to letting this one fade from my memory a bit, in anticipation of reading it again.
A hilarious and fun romp through an 80s pop culture adventure. Nerds, geeks and weirdos rejoice! Amazing insights on technology, society, entertainment and where they all intersect. A fun read!
How creative it was.
His extremely childishly exaggagerated tone ruined a lot of it for me. He sounded like an excited 8 year old with a slightly deeper voice.
