For the life of me I can't figure out how I learned about "Ready Player One." I think I went through one of those lulls where I couldn't find a story I was interested in and said to hell with it and tried something from totally out in left field.
I am so glad I did. This story by Cline is outstanding. This is particularly surprising because the story is about an Oklahoma City nerd who lives in a dystopian future where the only thing he has going for him is that he loves the "Oasis" video game that the whole world plays and he is committed to finding the treasure hidden in the game by its eccentric developer - who made everything revolve around 1980's trivia. Even though I am not a gamer and I do not identify with nerds or the 1980's, I loved this story. Who would have known that someone could listen hour after hour about absurd developments in the "Oasis" and be so captured. So inventive, clever, and funny. The narration is very well done.
Take a risk - you won't be disappointed - this one is an unexpected delight!
