    Ready player one

    Has anyone read Ready player one?

    I recently read the book on holiday and am working my way through the audio book narrated by Will Wheaton.

    Its very good and the roth army is probably its demographic.

    The trailer for the movie out next year is pretty good too. That spielberg fella might have a future.

    I read it last year after they said the movie was being made. It was okay.

    Spielberg is leaving out any mention of his movies. The DeLorean is in the trailer but I guess he only was exec producer of Back To The Future.

    It's not a great work of literature but if youre a geek it ticks a lot of boxes . Hey I know some ok

    The deus ex ending i let slide as I did the van halen comment.i assumed he meant Van Hagar

    I saw the Spielberg comment but there wasn't an awful lot of reference to his work , no et etc. It does slag off the the last Indiana jones movie lol

    It's the book equivalent of a summer blockbuster. Which, oddly enough, was intended to be a movie from the start.

    I found a couple mistakes, I'll have to go back through it and make notes. Something as simple as what label a band was on.

    Ok now I may have to read this...

    When I say read I mean have the precocious child from Star Trek read it to me.

    Fuck just checked and the child is only slightly younger than me.

    I didn't realize it was one of those actor pushing 30 playing a 'kid' situations like Back to the Future or Grease...

    Actually it was my first real audio book .Will bust my cherry. I now am fully "audible" so cant criticize people for being lazy. It now means I can do two things half arsed at the same time. Surely that's a full thing.
