Ready Player One had been on my geek radar for a long time but I’d never read it. The recent news that Steven Spielberg just might direct the film adaptation reminded me of this oversight, so I spent three days correcting it.
I had to add this book to my list of all-time favorites as soon as I finished it. I loved everything about it. The final battle inside the OASIS was just awesome. But then came the final scene of the entire book, and that was “I can’t carry the Ring but I can carry you” level awesome.
It looks like I’ll be reading Cline’s next book, Armada, pretty much as soon as it comes out later this year.
