There was only character who evolved and so there was only one character I cared about. He didn't get an ending. Why was so much time and promise put in to a character who was just going to be shoved off and forgotten about. The story, and the ending, otherwise was great.
The fight between the sword instructor (Applewhite I think) and Richard was fantastic. It was the right thing to really push Michael's store forward; to bad it didn't.
Yes, and I have twice now. I think I will start it again soon.
I like everything the best. I grew up in the 80s and this book spoke to the foundation of everything that made me happy when I was a kid. I want to get in to the Oasis.
He is referenced in the book a few times and it has this like, meta joy when the real Wheaton reads about the Wheaton who is a political figure in the Oasis. It seems like Will is hanging out in my living room, reading the book out loud. I love it. So much geek cred.
What I loved most about REAMDE was that it glanced off of things I care about; like family, guns, World of Warcraft, being a bad @$%, and the real value of things that aren't real.
