    Across America, a mysterious pathogen transforms ordinary people into raging killers, psychopaths driven by a terrifying, alien agenda. The human race fights back, yet after every battle the disease responds, adapts, using sophisticated strategies and brilliant ruses to fool its pursuers. The only possible explanation: the epidemic is driven not by evolution but by some malevolent intelligence.

    Overall

    Both Infected and Contagious were great books (make sure you get Infected first.) While many complain about the author reading his own work, one needs to understand Sigler offers all his novels as free podcasts on his website. Sure, at first I wasn't thrilled with his reading style, but it grew on me as the story progressed.

    The storyline is solid, and I had a hard time stopping it when my commute ended. If you're concerned about the author's reading technique then get the print edition, but don't miss this pair of books, because they're great!

    Sigler has added another fan to his cult-following.

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    What made the experience of listening to Ready Player One the most enjoyable?

    I think this is my first book review. Since I was a skeptic when I first purchased the book, and since the story was THAT GOOD, I felt it important to say so to those considering this book.

    Although I am a product of the 80's I must say that the storyline without those touches was engrossing and most enjoyable. I found that after my long commute to and from work, I had a hard time turning the book off, and wanted to keep listening. Due to this allure I finished the book in half the time it normally would take.

    Also, one doesn't need to grow-up in the 80's to thoroughly enjoy the story -- although the mentions of classic video games and 80’s movies will resonate with those who did (like myself.)


    What other book might you compare Ready Player One to and why?

    This book was found as an online recommendation for those who enjoyed the Hunger Game trilogy -- I'm glad I listened to the referral. I didn't know the person who referred it, but I was desperate for a book that was "as good" as the Hunger Game trilogy -- Ready Player One didn't disappoint.


    Any additional comments?

    The narator was fun to listen to and he kept the story moving along perfectly. Really was a great book!
