    When an unspeakable tragedy befalls a family of traveling minstrels, they become stranded and left for dead. Here in the heart of The Black Forest, Peter Piper and his older brother Max encounter ominous forces that will change them both irreparably. Thus begins an epic tale of sibling rivalry, magic, music and revenge that spans medieval times to the present day when their deadly conflict surfaces in the placid calm of modern-day Fabletown.

    Overall

    If you're a fan of the Fables series, or fractured fairy tales in general, then you'll enjoy this. Even if you've never read the Fables graphic novels, you're not really missing any back story to jump right in and revel in this fantastic story.
    I know a previous reviewer had an issue with Wil Wheaton's narration, but I loved it! His different voices for the characters give them a dimension that other narrators sometimes miss the mark on.
    All in all, give me more Fables stories!

    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.

    Story

    A great story that friends who play video games and remember pop culture would love. One of the great things about the book is all the references to various things. But that could be the downfall as well if you are not as familiar with them.

    The story is fairly typical, poor kid living in a repressed government with one way to get out. He needs to beat the OASIS challenge by the original programmer. This is that kind of story. It's the kind of story that I really did enjoy.
