Book 6 of 24 of A Year of Books. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Listened to: March 2018.
I signed up to Audible’s 30-day free trial to listen to the Ready Player One audiobook. Normally I like actual reading more. It allows me to speed up and slow down my pace depending on my level of interest. But this book got me hooked. I ended up listening to it in the car, in the elevator, in bed before I sleep… Practically everywhere.
It’s a light and easy, young adult, science fiction read. Probably not an original concept, but the existence of a virtual life outside of real life interests me a lot. I used to play a lot of games when I was younger and it brought back a lot of good feelings, when I used to spend hours and hours on the computer killing bad guys and collecting items in RPG games.
