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.

entertaining, well presented, and engaging. good character development, though later chapters have a few minor continuity errors from earlier chapters. the ending seems rushed when compared to the lengthy development of the challenges and characters. again, it's a good story and would listen again, though the ending implies what comes next, but leaves the door open for a followup book.

Good story, but the monotone deep voiced narrator made it a real struggle to finish. It was like listening to a computer telling the story with hardly any inflection.
