I appreciate what they are trying to do, but this story is just meant for the screen. There are some awkward lines of a character explaining what they see in a way that just doesn't sound natural.
While the audiobook adds some details to the story, most of them were not interesting. I'm a big believer in "less is more," and this audio adaptation did the opposite.
Additionally, it contained the intro and exit for each and every episode. I really didn't need the same 3 minutes of credits and music over and over and over... This is a result of them directly reproducing the radio broadcast without any editing.
This is one of the best Christian books I've read in a long time. It really challenged my ideas about what grace really is and how to live it out in our world. I'm sure I'll listen to this book again, which I cannot say about most audiobooks.
There were so many moments that moved me. I don't think Audible will let me reproduce the full contents of the book in this review.
Several times the narrator pauses, then repeats the last few words. This is annoying and could have been fixed with a good editing job. Otherwise the narrator did a fine job.
You can tell that Wil Wheaton was enjoying himself while performing "Ready Player One," and that made an already enjoyable book even more fun.
This book is a love letter to geek culture, particularly 80's video game culture.
