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.
This book has stolen a place in my heart. From beginning to end, I loved it. The characters are more realistic and relatable than any before. The fears they express the feeling they describe, are emotions I felt for myself while listening to it. Thank you Ernest Cline and Wil Wheaton. Thank you for this monumental journey. To anyone looking into the book, but it. you won't regret it.
-Sincerely, a man who will remember this forever.
A masterpiece of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life and foibles from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to "Our Father Below". At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C.S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of the worldly-wise old Devil to his nephew, Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man.
Amazing how words written so many years ago apply so well to society and people today. Very interesting perspective, and caused a good deal of self analysis...
For centuries, mystical creatures of all description were gathered to a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic in a cynical world. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite... Kendra and her brother Seth have no idea their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven.
I was immediately hooked, it's a great read and an amazing start to the fabke haven't series.
