Review: Ready Player One

Ready Player One
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely adored this book from start to finish. It had me completely hooked when I understood there would be references to pop culture of the 80’s and when it references Dead Man’s Party I was beyond excited. It just got better from there. And the few times I started to question something, I was pleasantly surprised to find my questions answered in the very next chapter. I loved the diversity in the characters and the accurate representation of friendships that can develop in online communities.

It’s a brilliant book that both celebrates and cautions online communities. I think everyone can find something they enjoy in this book.

PS Who else is dying to go to dancing at the Distracted Globe?

Meghan is an environmental scientist by trade but an artist at heart. She loves all things geeky/nerdy and is frequently found with less geeky friends rolling their eyes at her. She often spouts all kinds of pop culture trivia and nonsense stemming from her avid love of movies, music, art, and books. If not curled up with a book (she reads at least one a week) or comic, she can be found painting with something on a screen to distract her. She wishes she was as cool as Veronica Mars or as Kate Daniels. Besides blogging about comics here you can also find her exploring around twitter, instagram, tumblr, pinterest, goodreads, and trying to keep up appearances on her own blog.
