the story was in some ways comfortingly predictable. Never the less, masterful creation of a world both familiar and futuristic. The performance was monotone, but provided the requisite name recognition.
An amazing reminder of the past, and a great fiction romp that I needed right now. It spends a lot of time describing the past, while not being bogged down by boring facts and just appreciating it like any true nerd would. Fantastic performance as well.
Loved the story.
Only part of the book that became unbearable was the over the top listing of vintage games, movies, TV shows, etc.
Almost put me to sleep a few times with the amount of name dropping.
Other than that, super fun. Got through it in 4-5 listenings at 2x.
I you liked this book I recommend Demon by Daniel Suarez. Similar concept, dead genius, but far more adult themes.
if you even slightly consider yourself a gaming geek from the 80's forward, you will enjoy this book. Its one of those that I didn't want to leave when it was over
What an amazing and well-preformed story. I downloaded this to listen with my husband who is more into the video game and 80's phenomena than I but I loved this story just as much as he did. Even if you don't think you're into this genre, give Ready Player One a try. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
