Ready Player One is one of the best books I have read in a long time, and the narrator brings it to life. This is now one of my favorite narrators. Anyone interested in films or games, and especially anyone that misses the great times of the 80s and 90s must check out this book.
This was so up my alley. The amount of 80's references that fit into my geek culture was amazing. An amazing story that takes you on a journey through the Oasis.
If you like books, read this. If you like video games, read this. If you like the 1980s, read this. If you like love stories, read this. This book is pure gold. If you prefer to listen, please do so. Wil Wheaton does a nice job. I found myself enjoying every second of this book. Often times laughing out loud and sitting on the edge of my seat while listening. Read this book right now.
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.
