    "Ready Player One: A Novel is a futuristic look at the year 2045 but loaded with the pop culture of the 1980's. The book has a lot of cliches but also includes a strong female heroine who gets by on intelligence alone. The novel is worthy of a read and has an interesting take on virtual reality and gaming that should connect with a lot of readers."

    "I was born in the 80's and am always looking for books that talk about that era. I really enjoyed all of the 80's references in this book."

    "Eureka! I finally found one: an audiobook that I loved. I mean what 80’s baby wouldn’t appreciate an audiobook narrated by Wil Wheaton loaded with 80’s pop culture references to boot? Fun Fact: my favorite Wil Wheaton movie is Toy Soldiers. I will admit that when I first read the synopsis of this book I didn’t think it was my jam. My best friend convinced me otherwise and boy was she right! I loved it! Like really loved it. I am not sure if I would have felt the same way reading the book versus listening; I think since I enjoyed the narration that I was more engaged. Either way I now can’t wait for the movie coming out in March. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline is about a highly introverted billionaire, James Halliday, whom leaves his fortune and control of his company to one lucky winner of a treasure hunt he has created inside the virtual reality environment (the Oasis) that he has also created (Wow, realized I wrote a sentence that could easily become some sort of tongue twister). Halliday loves the 80’s: its music, movies and video games…if you don’t, well then you probably would not have had a chance at winning the prize (and would not enjoy this book/audiobook as much)"

    "This book is one of the playing an online game sub-genre. I don't read that many in that sub-genre but I read a few. This was hilarious. It is straddling the line between sci-fi and fantasy. But suspend disbelief and just enjoy the humorous story."

The world is imagined with vivid detail and the characters are set in unique settings to bring to like a rich world of pop culture and captivating action scenarios."
