    (10577)

    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.

    Julie W. Capell says: "I’m sorry I waited so long to read this book."
    "Pandering to the point of insult."

    What would have made Ready Player One better?

    Ready Player One falls back way too often (as in every 1-2 minutes) on unnecessarily listing of iconic 80's titles to evoke nostalgia. It's as if someone took a decent short story and inserting random lists of their favorite things from childhood to double the length.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ernest Cline again?

    Doubtful


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
