Finished Ready Player One
Okay book once you get past the first half which is boring. So much fan service with the 80’s nostalgia it almost takes away from the book. None of the kids these days are going to understand any of it.

I’m interested to see the movie because there is no way they can take this book and make it into a film without severe modifications.

Fun story, but yeah you’ve got to be at least late 20s with some knowledge of prior times to enjoy it.
I only read it to see the film.

That was the entire point of the book and Holliday's egg.

Pretty obvious this book wasn't written by a normal author. It was an easy read and almost entirely plot driven.

There wasn't even an introduction just boom let's start the story. It wasn't a bad read. I enjoyed it just not great.

I bet it'll make a better movie.

I thought it was great. What more introduction do you need? He explained what happened to the world and everyone was living through VR

re: Finished Ready Player One
I enjoyed the book for what it was- an entertaining, light read that i thought was targeted to the GenX population with all of the 80’s references. I’m glad I read it, but wouldn’t pull it off my shelf to read again any time soon

I agree on genx, im 43 and loved it. But i will say my 14 yr old read and loved also. He is a gamer so there is a lot or relatable stuff for him in there as well. Very few things we have in common, so that was cool. We both cant wait for the movie!

I liked the book, but like the Arthur's other book The Armada better. It was still a geeky story, but had better character development.

I started late last night and I'm just 2 chapters in but I'll definitely finish it in the next few days. Got a little sleepy but it's well written enough to keep me engaged. Also 37 FWIW

I agree. I liked RPO but thought Armada was a little better overall
