Review of 'Ready Player One (Ready Player One, #1)' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

The ultimate geek-out.

After a few so-so books in a row, decided to take some friends recommendations as give "RP1" a try.

While taking place in the future, with technologies we can only imagine today, RP1 is a throwback to the 1980s, this book is chalk full of references to the best and worst of the decade of my childhood: music, movies, TV shows, authors, fashion, and of course, video games. At the same time, it's a warning to us about taking care of our planet, about the power of corporations, and living in the real world - not just online.

Protip: If this book isn't geeky enough for you as it is, the audiobook on Audible is narrated by Wil Wheaton.
