A dynamic narrator brings to life a heroin who is both relatable and not ridiculously over-the-top.
Joran is an enjoyable male character who is flawed and a pleasure to listen to.
No ridiculous hijinx or over-the-top unexplainable action, just a simple love story.
With alien sex. 😀

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.

In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.
