This listen ranks in the middle when compared to listens like Choke by Chuck Pahlaniuk or The Dark Tower series as read by Frank Muller. Will Wheaton does a fine job here though and helps bring the story to life.
Ready Player One reminded me of Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game and Lost Boys because of the intellect of the characters and the virtual reality mixed with real reality.
Will Wheaton adds nerd cred to the whole thing. This book might open up geekdom to those who play on the edge of geekdom.
I enjoyed the nostalgia of the pizza parlor and the way Wade earned the extra quarter.
If you are a geek or afraid you might be, you should check this out.
