Ready Player One is a well written ode to the 1980s wrapped inside a virtual reality science fiction novel. Usually I don’t finish books that have virtual reality in them, but Cline uses it in a way that wasn’t annoying. I enjoyed all the references from the 1970s and 1980s: the music and movies. If you’re a gamer from that era, even better, unfortunately I’m not, but it didn’t seem to lessen my enjoyment of the book. Cline’s book is young at heart as are the main characters. It got better and better the further I read- like a video game. Although it felt at times like a movie, I can’t see how they could make a movie out of it. There is a lot of detail in the book that is required to move the plot.
