Wil Wheaton mentioning the existence of Wil Wheaton within the book. Sorry.. There are too many to choose from, so this is what you get.
You thought it would never happen.. The 80's are back, but the way they should be!
A classic story of underdog kid and crew defeating evil mega-entity, inside of a magical world within our own. Harry Potter but with Gamer/D&D VR? ;P .. Loved it! .. Thanks again, Wil, for a lovely journey through a fantastic book! .. (Oh, and thanks Ernest Cline for writing the book in the first place!)
Will Wheaton's performance was outstanding but this book seemed like it was written for young teens. The characters were severely shallow, poorly thought out and contradictory. Not in an interesting way either, just a purely frustrating way. I would have rather listened to Harmontown and Ender's Shadow which are much better sources of the themes in Ready Player One (minus the game console history).
Stephen Moss Series
More voice differentiation for each of the characters
The only reason I listened all the way through it was because I purchased it. Dumb, I know...
This story is a wonderful tribute to nerds, geeks and all of us who love sci-fi and fantasy! Wheaton does a great job and the story is action packed. My only warning, you may feel a desire to watch old 80's movies and tv shows after your done.
I was a bit skeptical about this book before getting started but once I started I finished it in 2 days. I fell in love with the characters, the references, and Wil Wheaton's narration was superb. I immediately pre-ordered his next novel and am looking forward to reading it as soon as it is released a month from now. Thank you Earnest Cline and Wil Wheaton for taking me on such an incredible journey.
