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.

Would you consider the audio edition of Ready Player One to be better than the print version?

Although I have not yet read the printed version of this book, I doubt that I could have done a better job!! I really enjoed listening to this book!

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the fact that I could relate to some of the games, game sytems and movies that were mentioned in the story because I remembered them from my youth.

What about Wil Wheaton’s performance did you like?

Oh!! Will Wheaton's performance of the book was breath taking, I felt like I was watching a movie instead of listening to an audiobook. It was that real for me!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I am embarrased to say that I cried in the end I was so happy and proud of parzavil.

When it comes to the holidays, no story brings us back to the true spirit of giving like O. Henry’s classic "The Gift of the Magi". So this year we’ve asked some of your favorite Audible narrators—Audie Award winners Katherine Kellgren, Oliver Wyman, and Jonathan Davis—to bring to life this timeless tale, plus two more of O. Henry’s gems: "The Cop and the Anthem" and "The Last Leaf", in this holiday collection.

Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to stay out of trouble. But can he really be expected to stand by and watch while a bully picks on his scrawny best friend? Or not defend himself against his pre-algebra teacher when she turns into a monster and tries to kill him? Of course, no one believes Percy about the monster incident; he's not even sure he believes himself.

This is what happened: I met him at the candy store. He turned and smiled at me and I was surprised enough to smile back. This was not a children's candy store, mind you, this was the kind of place you went to buy expensive imported chocolate truffles for your boss' wife because you felt guilty for having sex with him when you were both at a conference in Milwaukee.

With each and every new novel, Dean Koontz raises the stakes, and the pulse rate, higher than any other author. Now, in what may be his most suspenseful and heartfelt novel ever, he brings us the story of an ordinary man whose extraordinary commitment to his wife will take him on a harrowing journey of adventure, sacrifice, and redemption to the mystery of love itself, and to a showdown with the darkness that would destroy it forever.

I truly enjoyed listening to the book! I read other people's review before I purchased and based on their reviews, I must say that I was skeptical and almost didn't purchase it, but since I am a Dean Koontz fan, I decided to give it a try and I am glad that I did!
