Ready Player One


I had no idea this was even a book*,


much less a world-altering one,


until I started seeing ads for Steven Spielberg's upcoming movie, opening on March 30.


I bought the book and am now "slow-reading" it, something I do only with the most wonderful books that I never want to have end.

*Style me "so out of it, it's not even funny"

It isn't terrible... unlike his second book (Armada) which is one of the worst books i have ever read.

I started 'Ready Player One.' Found the opening 50 pages so bloody boring that I put it aside and have not gone back to it. A guy on Goodreads told me it gets better after the first hundred pages. Screw that. This is the 21st century. You got one page and one page only to grab my interest. I gave 'Ready Player One' more than its due. Ernest Cline cannot write.

Maybe Hollywood can make a decent movie of this trash. They did it with John Grisham, 'The Firm.'

I got the audiobook with Wil Wheaton as the narrator. I was a little sad at the stereotypes of the '80s...I don't know if the author just got them wrong or if it was intended to be as cringeworthy for nerds...
