Great writing of a future where most rather be in a virtual world than the real one. Will Wheaton does a great job narrating this.
Yes, Absolutely. Whil Wheaton does a fantastic job as the narrator, and the story is simply amazing as well. Not only is he a fantastic advocate for the players in the OASIS, he has done a superb job here.
I like the amount of pop culture references. Having lived through the 80s at about the same age of Halliday's character, I knew most of the references that were made. The big hair, the Arcades, the computers, all of it!
Wade was my favorite, and he is the main character of the book.
The final line in the book was absolutely moving. This line, and the final line of Stephen King's (as Richard Bachman) The Long Walk are the only two final lines in a book that give me chills every time that I read them.
You will absolutely not regret getting this book! I guarantee it!
So many of my favorite movies and TV shows and songs were referenced in this book. Many classic sci-if, fantasy, and adventure fandoms and worlds rolled into one amazingly written and compelling adventure. Easily on my top ten list of favorites with Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, Percy Jackson, and so on. Wil Wheaton brilliantly narrates the audio book with great impressions and convincing emotion in his tone. Would read again and again and recommend to any super geek like me.
This book is amazing and you definitely need to listen to it or read it, especially if you are any type of nerd. Wok Wheaton did a good job. You can tell he enjoyed the book and that made his performance better.
If you love books, you will love this book. It is excellently narrated and wonderfully entertaining. Easily my new favorite book.
