Customer Review

on 8 July 2013
I struggled to find a fiction novel that appealed to me. Many novels make me feel like I'm not allowed to relax; like it's somehow my duty to pay close attention and remember all the details of characters that I don't care about yet. Ready Player One is different. The main character is a loner, giving this story a small cast of interesting players.

Advice which is often given to authors is to show, rather than tell. Unfortunately this book spends about three chapters early on simply describing the setting. I was glad that I didn't give up at that point, because, after wading through that little bit, the rest of the book is a fantastic adventure.

The book's target audience is those geeks who were young in the eighties, enjoyed video games and classic films and TV programs. It's also for those who feel like the world might be heading towards disaster thanks to large, evil, uncaring corporate greed, and are eager to see the greedy elites taken down by the underdog.

Can't wait for the movie :)
