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.

Loved it the second time through as well! Glad they made a movie but I'm preparing myself to be disappointed.

Nothing ever changes in Sanders. The town's still got a video store, for God's sake. So why doesn't Eli Teague want to leave? Not that he'd ever admit it, but maybe he's been waiting - waiting for the traveler to come back. The one who's roared into his life twice before, pausing just long enough to drop tantalizing clues before disappearing in a cloud of gunfire and a squeal of tires. The one who's a walking anachronism, with her tricorne hat, flintlock rifle, and steampunked Model A Ford.

This book is designed for people who are sick and tired of feeling "sick and tired" and want to get back in control of their drinking. Imagine if today you could go back to a time when you could "take or leave" a drink and tomorrow you wake up with no hangover, no regrets and feeling full of energy and vitality. Picture your bank account with thousands of extra dollars in it and imagine what life would be like if you had a limitless abundance of quality time with your family and loved ones?

Where does The Fastest Way to Control Alcohol... Guaranteed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's at the top of my list for books concerning alcoholism.

Have you listened to any of Craig Beck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I could identify with so many of his first person accounts concerning alcohol it's hard to name just one moment...

Any additional comments?

If AA isn't for you and you want to quit drinking I recommend this book. It's not going to fix everything for you of course, but it's a refreshing perspective.
