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.

Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

each character's voice in the previous books has been consistent from book to book. In this book, The Voices have changed since the last book. I found it awkward.

If you could sum up Goal Play! in three words, what would they be?

The book is well written and easy to listen to. Each chapter starts out with a soccer anecdote, but the soccer parallels stop a few minutes into the chapter. Still, the lessons are useful. I would reccomend this book.
